There's a PDF file converted from MOBI format and it looks like "first half of the below image". Later, Someone could reprocess it to like the "second half of the below image". Could anyone please suggest me how to do this using adobe acrobat (or any other software)?
I tried "save as doc(x)" file and formatting word file but no luck. Please note that this document has images too.
Formatting in the way you want is not a role of Acrobat. The PDF is a final form, similar to printing to paper. Any edits are for minor changes. You would need to make changes at the MOBI level if possible before creating the PDF or save the PDF to a WORD file and hope you get something reasonable. Note that going to WORD is not that great in many cases. Since the MOBI format is for e-books, there may be a copyright issue with the file and anything you do with it.
@Bill Thank you for your reply but you always have an option of keeping your mouth shut if you do NOT know. I clearly mentioned that i gave a guy the PDF in the format of first-half-of-my-screenshot and he returned the PDF in the format of second-half-of-my-screenshot. It was not about MOBI file editing at all.
Also, i already told you that coverting to docx was no helpful.
Is acrobat NOT a PDF editor? if it can't do, what other s/w could do this job for me? (i asked this in my OP as well).
Expecting some helpful replies ...thanks!
You are misinformed: Acrobat can only do very limited and specialized PDF editing. You can't edit the way you would in Microsoft Word.
Bill was doing his best to give you an answer based on the very limited information you provided in your original question. Bill said this at the beginning of his answer: "Formatting in the way you want is not a role of Acrobat. The PDF is a final form, similar to printing to paper. Any edits are for minor changes. "
I should probably keep my trap shut, but I can not resist. I did give you an answer as mentioned. It was that Acrobat could not do what you asked.
Your information was very vague. For instance there is no mention of you giving someone a PDF, but that that you had a PDF converted from MOBI (I had to look that up to even reply). I admit that I do not always read carefully, but indicated that conversion to WORD (that you had mentioned doing, but there are multiple options there and it even varies with version -- something that you never mentioned -- AA XI does the best I have seen of any version) was about your only solution from Acrobat. There are 3rd party editors that are claimed to do well and you might find them at PlanetPDF or PDFZone.
A lot of us spend a lot of our time trying to help others the best we can. Sorry if you felt I did not give you the answer you wanted, but there is really nothing that can be done with Acrobat other than what I suggested. That is an answer and the only one that can be given relative to Acrobat.
Thank you Steve and Bill.
Sorry if i sounded bit harsh. I really appreciate the help/support being provided here.
Again, I do NOT know how he did it (he wouldn't say).I did not say that he used acrobat and i don't know. But as per Bill, i will surely try planetPDF/PDFZone.
As per the document properties of final PDF, I found out that he used PoDoFo which is a free portable C++ library (http://podofo.sourceforge.net/index.html) for PDF.
If it helps at all, you can see what produced the PDF that you got back. You use ctrl-D to view the document properties. Usually it indicates the producer. That might give a bit more insight into what you might be able to try. In terms of the C++ options, that is beyond this forum, though someone might know and address the issue.
I tried Calibri several months ago, and I was unimpressed by the way it ignored common word processor attributes like paragraph indents, italics, footnoting, etc. Having worked for ten years as a senior architect designing database driven dynamic browser-based software applications similar to those later produced successfully by Siebel Systems (now defunct), I an not interested in buggy software. This is why I chose the Adobe solution.
I think the problem is that going from Mobi to PDF is not a usual workflow. There is no Adobe tool which focuses on that kind of translation.
If you do a Google search on "Mobi to PDF" there is some software that claims to do such a conversion, but you'll have to try them out. I wouldn't expect much because Mobi files don't generally contain the kind of structural information you need to create a good PDF.
