I am working on a large PDF file (26 mb) and I need to re-size the original and mess with the margins. I don't beleive there is an easy way to do this in Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pro. It sounds like I have to convert the file back to a Word document, do the adjustments there and then produce a new PDF. I have two questions:
Is there a file size limitation to using this service?
Will a PDF to Word doc. conversion mantain the format of the orginal PDF?
Good day Tim,
There is a 100MB file size limitation for submitting files to the ExportPDF service. As for the quality of the conversion, from our FAQ entitled Will Adobe ExportPDF convert both text and formatting information?:
Adobe ExportPDF is capable of exporting high quality information, but the quality of your Word or Excel document depends on the quality of the PDF file you start with. For instance, if your PDF file was originally authored in Microsoft Word or Excel and converted to PDF using the PDFMaker functionality of Adobe Acrobat®, your PDF file contains a rich set of information that can be captured by Adobe ExportPDF. This includes relative positioning of tables, images, and even multi-column text, as well as page, paragraph, and font attributes.
If your PDF file was originally authored using simpler PDF generation methods, such as “print to PDF” or “scan to PDF” options, Adobe ExportPDF will convert any recognizable text and then use sophisticated conversion intelligence to preserve as much of the page layout as possible.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!
David, thanks for the response. Sounds like my document is under the 100 mb file size limit, and that's good news. A bit more about the document. It is a book that was professionally type set and sent to me in a PDF format. It is nothing fancy. Maybe a dozen chapters, a total of 205 pages and about 25 photos in the center. The photos were scanned in 35 mm pictures (before digital). The book size is 6.58 X 9.58. I need to adjust the entire thing down to 6 X 9 for printing. The original document was created in Microsoft Word and then converted to a PDF format.
How long does a PDF to Word Doc. conversion take? Also, I'm assuming I sign up for the $19.99/year deal and then send in the document. Is that correct?
Thanks for the quick reply.
Good day Tim,
The conversion will probably take a few minutes. Most conversions complete under 10 minutes.
I'd suggest subscribing to the service and giving it a try. If you're unhappy with the service for any reason, we have a 30-day return policy for a full refund.
Thanks David. I'll sign up and give it a try tonight. Thanks for your help.
