Linking to Pages or Destinations Within PDFs

Ever wanted to link through to specific pages or named destinations within your PDF files? This tip from Jeremy Koadlow explains how.

Finding user screen resolution with JavaScript

This JavaScript tip explains how to find the user's screen resolution, which can then be used to perform operations such as setting the PDF's initial zoom settings.

Modifying link properties using JavaScript

When creating interactive PDF documents, links are an integral tool, so what do you do if you find that your links don't match or you need to change link styles throughout a long document? Updating each link manually is often unfeasible due to time constraints, but Acrobat JavaScript may provide the solution. In this tip, ARTS PDF Product Manager Maryanne Montes sheds some light on this great time-saver.

Removing filename bookmarks created by Acrobat

Acrobat 6 added the ability to create composite PDF documents from multiple files -- including PDFs. This function is very useful, but it breaks up the bookmark tree of the final document, which can be a highly manual task to correct. This tip from Sean Stewart explains how to remove the unnecessary bookmarks for a seamless viewing experience.

Printing page ranges quickly with JavaScript

If you want to print ranges of pages from Acrobat, your options are a somewhat limited. You have the choice of setting a single, continuous page range (e.g. pages 1-10), all even pages, or all odd pages. While this may be sufficient for most purposes, what can you do if you need to print multiple page ranges? Help is at hand! This JavaScript tip from ARTS PDF's Sean Stewart explains how.

Collating PDFs using JavaScript

Despite the numerous benefits, there can be potential issues with the conversion of paper documents into electronic archives. When scanning paper pages into PDF, it's possible to end up with the odd- and even-numbered pages in separate PDF files. It can be very time-consuming to collate them manually, but there is an easier way. Sean Stewart explains.

Adding Your Own Text to PDFs with Acrobat

If you've ever had the need to add text to a PDF after you've created it, then read on. By utilising the Text Annotation Tool it's possible to add new text to your PDF file.

Instant Printing From a JavaScript PopUpMenu

The following JavaScript code can be added to a button, bookmark or even link. When the user activates the button / bookmark / link a popup menu will be displayed on screen listing the page numbers (in page blocks of 20). If the user selects a page number that page will be silently printed to the default printer, no dialog boxes will be displayed.
