    • of Office, LibreOffice and Google Docs documents;
    • of images ;
    • of web pages ;
    • of any Windows applications capable of printing.

  4. Feel free to comment on this tutorial.

  1. Good article that recalls the basics and almost all the possibilities of PDF formats.

    I would have liked a section on flaws, workarounds and alternatives because today’s PDF is not what it used to be.

  2. Why such an infatuation? Well, there’s a good reason for this: PDF files retain their original formatting regardless of the computer or viewing device used.
  3. Not quite true because the display varies (a bit see bcp) depending on the version of the player and on the presence or not of embedded fonts in the file. And the printing also varies according to the impact of the printer drivers…
  4. More than 15 years ago people liked PDF mainly because it was an immutable document format (at least we thought so).

    Now there are free, popular, paying publishers to change a PDF and that hurts the format I think.

    Then the editors added the notion of certificate in a pdf, digital signature, passwords, hidden fields, dynamic fields, integrated js scripts, videos, flash…

  5. In short, a PDF document is no longer immutable, it’s just a catch-all format like any other.

  2. I discovered thanks to this folder the possibility to extract elements (images in particular) from a PDF file
  3. free of charge
  4. (chapter III.B) via free office Draw.

    I’m very grateful to you.


  5. as I read sth. came back to me.
  6. Few of my know it, but Adobe Acrobat Reader (the free player) has a real reader built in. That is to say that you can open a PDF document with text (a doc, courses, a story…etc) and ask to read it to you with the TTS system integrated to Windows in French or in English, you choose. For example, if you have other voices installed on your Windows computer (accepella, Loquendo, nextup…etc), they will support them. If you have a recognition tool (OCR) such as ReadIris or Omnipage from scansoft), they also install voice packages that can be read.
  7. it’s very handy when you want to work/learn a technology and at the same time with someone reading the doc! and it’s free of course.

  1. Hello
  2. :merci:
    Thank you for this information.
  3. A small question, is it possible to create a PDF file without specialized software? by managing all the bytes of the file (with a personal or ultra-edit program or notepad).

  6. I don’t know but I’ve already seen PDF files with content that wasn’t always binary, maybe there’s a standard with a tag/tagsystem content editable with vi or other editor

    It would be nice to have a little reminder of the standards and differences in PDF formats.

    for example, there I opened a file, it tells me it’s the v1.7 standard (acrobat 8) so there were at least 6 versions before.

Default LATEX

  1. In my opinion, however, an introductory paragraph to LATEX is still missing.

  3. I couldn’t agree more. LaTEX is an excellent way to make good PDF files. Maybe the author will talk about it in a future update of his article.

Default Error and complement

  1. Good morning
  2. 1/ In the opening chapter of Pdf, you write :

    To open a PDF document in Word 2010 or 2013, you can also view the corresponding file in the File Explorer, right-click on it, point to Open with and click on Word (desktop).

    => Word 2010 doesn’t allow you to open a Pdf, I think you wanted to write Word 2013 or 2016.

  3. 2/ Maybe it would have been interesting to talk about the online converters Pdf -> Word, …
