After you have created a bookmark, you can change its order or hierarchy in the Bookmarks
palette by dragging it to a new location in the palette. While you drag, the location where the
bookmark will be moved is indicated by a black bar.
Uploading eBooks to Adobe Content Server
When you’re done creating your Adobe PDF eBook, you are ready to upload it to Adobe Content
Server for packaging and distribution. When you do so, you may also upload a GIF thumbnail
image of the book’s cover. The Adobe Content Server software will also allow you to specify
permissions for using the eBook (such as printing and copying), and encrypt it.
Checklist for Preparing Adobe PDF eBooks
When you’ve finished preparing your Adobe PDF eBook, review the steps in the process to make
sure that you haven’t omitted any of them.
1) In Acrobat Distiller or another authoring application, set recommended job options for
eBooks before creating an Adobe PDF document. As a result, text, line art, and images
are compressed; all fonts used in the book are embedded, including the base 14 fonts if
they were used; and, all colors are converted to sRGB.
2) Create a thumbnail image of the book’s cover in JPEG (100 pixels wide and 96 dpi) and
attach it to the Adobe PDF document.
3) Create a thumbnail image of the book’s cover in GIF (100 pixels wide and 96 dpi) for
upload it to Adobe Content Server.
4) If appropriate, use Acrobat to specify the Adobe PDF eBook open in Fit Width or Two-
Page View in Acrobat eBook Reader.
5) Number pages in the Adobe PDF document so that its actual page numbers correspond
to page numbers that appear in the page navigator bar in Acrobat eBook Reader. The
front cover is numbered C, inside front cover is numbered c, front matter is numbered
beginning with i or iii (and contains an even number of pages), and body pages are
numbered beginning with 1.
6) Link entries in the table of contents, cross-references, and index entries.
7) Add bookmarks to the Adobe PDF document.
After you create your Adobe PDF eBook, you are ready to upload to Adobe
Content Server and perform the following steps:
How to C#: Basic SDK Concept of XDoc.Excel
Conversely, conversion from PDF to Excel (.XLSX) is also C# project, such as annotation creating, deleting, modifying This class describes bookmarks in a Excel add bookmarks pdf; export bookmarks from pdf to excel
8) Upload your Adobe PDF eBook to Adobe Content Server and enter the book’s title,
author, and other information.
9) Upload a GIF image of the book’s cover to Adobe Content Server.
10) Set permissions for the Adobe PDF eBook and encrypt it using Adobe Content Server
Customizing Acrobat Distiller Job Options
After you’ve set recommended job options for eBooks in Acrobat Distiller according to guidelines
in “Setting Acrobat Distiller job options for eBooks” you may want to customize these options to
change the quality or size of your Adobe PDF files. To customize these options, follow the general
guidelines in this appendix. For more information, see Acrobat Online Help.
To Customize the Recommended Acrobat Distiller Job Options for eBooks:
1) Launch Acrobat Distiller by doing one of the following:
In Acrobat, choose Tools > Distiller.
In Windows, choose Start > Programs > Acrobat Distiller.
2) In the Acrobat Distiller dialog box, make sure that the job options that you created in
“Setting Acrobat Distiller job options for eBooks” are chosen. Then choose Settings > Job
3) In the Job Options dialog box, modify options as desired in the General, Compression,
Fonts, Color, and Advanced panels. For general information on customizing these
options, see the subsections that follow. For more comprehensive information, see
Acrobat Online Help.
4) To apply the changes to the current set of job options, click OK. To save this set of
customized job options in a new file, click Save As. Then enter a filename with the
.joboptions extension, and click Save. (Be sure to save the file in its default location, so
that it’s recognized by Acrobat Distiller.)
Customizing General Job Options
The General job options let you specify the version of Acrobat with which the Adobe PDF file will
be compatible and other file options, including optimizing for faster viewing on the Web,
embedding thumbnails, automatically rotating pages, specifying a page range in your source
document to be converted to Adobe PDF, choosing a left-side or right-side binding, specifying a
resolution, and specifying a default page size.
In most cases, you’ll want to make your Adobe PDF file compatible with Acrobat 4.0 or later, so
that features such as the use of sRGB color aren’t lost. You’ll also want to keep the Embed
Thumbnails option deselected. Thumbnail previews of pages can’t be viewed in Acrobat eBook
Reader and increase the file size substantially. Choose Left for Binding unless your document
contains an Asian language that uses right-side binding. For more information on customizing
General job options, see Acrobat Online Help.
Customizing Compression Job Options
The Compression job options let you specify how images are downsampled and compressed, and
how text and line art are compressed. Downsampling and compression can significantly reduce
the size of the Adobe PDF file, but they can also degrade the quality of images. You may want to
experiment with these options to find an appropriate balance between image quality and file size.
When you downsample an image, you decrease the number of pixels in the image, resulting in
image data being lost. Acrobat Distiller lets you specify how images are downsampled; using
average downsampling, bicubic downsampling, or subsampling. After selecting a downsampling
method for each image type, enter the desired resolution in dpi for the images. To achieve a
smaller file size than with the recommended job options for eBooks, try specifying a desired
resolution of 96 dpi for color and grayscale images, and 150 dpi for monochrome images. Next,
enter a resolution to determine which images will be resampled (images with a resolution above
the value you entered will be resampled). For more information on downsampling images, see
Acrobat Online Help.
Compressing Color or Grayscale Images
Acrobat Distiller lets you specify for color or grayscale images to be compressed using Automatic,
JPEG, or ZIP compression. If you have various types of images, choose Automatic to have
Acrobat Distiller determine the best compression method for you. Choose JPEG for continuous-
tone photographs that contain more detail than can be reproduced on-screen or in print. Choose
ZIP for images with large areas of single colors or repeating patterns, such as screenshots and
simple images created with paint programs. For more information on compressing color or
grayscale images, see Acrobat Online Help.
Compressing Monochrome Images
Acrobat Distiller lets you specify for monochrome images to be compressed using CCITT Group 3
or 4, Run Length, or ZIP compression. Choose CCITT Group 3 or 4 for black-and-white images
created with paint programs and any images scanned with an image depth of 1 bit. Choose Run
Length for images that contain large areas of solid black or white.
To smooth jagged edges in monochrome images, select the Anti-Alias to Gray option. Keep in
mind that anti-aliasing can cause small type or thin lines to look blurry. For more information on
compressing monochrome images, see Acrobat Online Help.
Compressing Text and Line Art
Be sure to select the Compress Text and Line Art option. With this option selected, Acrobat
Distiller compresses text and line art using ZIP compression, which results in no loss of data or
Customizing Fonts Job Options
The Fonts job options let you choose which fonts are to be embedded in the Adobe PDF
document. Embedding fonts ensures substitute fonts aren’t used in your document, so that it
looks exactly as you intended. Substitute fonts are used when readers don’t have the fonts in
your document installed on their system. Keep in mind that embedding fonts increases file size.
To save file space, you can embed subsets of fonts or only those characters that are used in the
document. It’s important to note that some fonts have license restrictions. Fonts with license
restrictions are preceded by this symbol ( ) in the Job Options dialog box. When you select a font
with license restrictions, the nature of the restriction is described in the explanation area of the
dialog box. TrueType fonts can contain settings added by the font’s designer that prevent the
fonts from being embedded in Adobe PDF files.
Embedding All Fonts
Select the Embed All Fonts option to embed all fonts used in the file.
To embed only a subset of each font when the percent of characters used is less than a given
value, select the Subset Embedded Fonts When Percent of Characters is Less Than option, and
specify a percentage. If you select this option and specify 100, Acrobat Distiller embeds a subset
of each font that’s used in the document, which saves on file space.
Responding When Embedding Fails
Choose from the When Embedding Fails pop-up menu to specify how Acrobat Distiller should
respond if it can’t find a font to be embedded when creating an Adobe PDF file. Choose Ignore to
have Acrobat Distiller substitute the font without warning. Choose Warn and Continue to have
Acrobat Distiller warn you before substituting the font. Choose Cancel to have Acrobat Distiller
cancel processing of the job.
Embedding Only Certain Fonts
To embed only certain fonts, deselect the Embed All Fonts option, and add the fonts you want
embedded to the Always Embed list. (To add a font, select it in the list on the left and click the
arrow button next to the Always Embed list.) To make sure certain fonts are never embedded,
add those fonts to the Never Embed list. If the font you want isn’t in a font folder, click Add
Name, enter the name of the font, select Always Embed List or Never Embed List, and click Add.
To remove a font from the Always Embed or Never Embed list, select it and click Remove.
For more information on customizing Fonts job options, see Acrobat Online Help.
Customizing Color Job Options
The Color job options let you set color management information for Acrobat Distiller. You can
choose to use the color management information in the PostScript file, use a color settings file
(CSF) already defined in Acrobat Distiller, or define custom settings. For best results in your
Adobe PDF eBook, it’s recommended that you convert all colors to sRGB. For more information
on customizing Color job options, see Acrobat Online Help.
