Free Acumen Journal newsletter for Feb. 2004

February 03, 2004


The free Acumen Journal presents two monthly articles, one -- "The Acrobat User" -- featuring advanced uses of Adobe Acrobat, and the second -- "PostScript Tech" -- covering some aspect of PostScript programming.

For February, the technical features by John Deubert of Acumen Training are:

  1. The Acrobat User: "Acrobat 6 Preflighting, Part 1"
    -- Acrobat 6 introduced a built-in preflight feature that can give you a great deal of information about your PDF files and help you avoid problems. This month, Part 1, Deubert shows how to run a preflight session and interpret its results.
  2. PostScript Tech: "Setpagedevice and Mysteriously Blank Pages"
    -- The setpagedevice operator is PostScript's hook into printer specific features. It brought a much-needed consistency to PostScript Level 2. It also introduced a rare but very strange problem in some files: pages that unaccountably print blank.

The free Acumen Journal for February 2004 [PDF: 523kb] can be downloaded from Planet PDF, as well as from the Acumen Training Web site.
