OMG, people are morons.
I should stick to my f-list - you guys know the difference between arses and elbows, unlike the denizens of Y! Answers.
I have an Adobe Acrobat 7 problem. I use it to glue multi-chapter html files together into one pdf, which I can then import into the ebook software of my choice. I've been doing it for years. But! I have a new computer, and a new installation of Acrobat, and it automatically adds the file path of the source files to the bottom of every single page. Fine - if I was printing it out, but I'm not - I'm converting it into pdb or prc or epub, and that footer information is getting dragged along and inserted into the body of my book.
Silly me, I thought "ask Y! Answers".
So far I've been advised to upgrade to Adobe Reader 9 - it's freeware!
Yes, I know it's freeware. I have it installed already. But I'm not using Adobe Reader, I'm using Adobe Acrobat,
which is NOT FUCKING FREEWARE.Edit:
I have defeated the thing myself. In case anyone else has this problem do the following:
- Open any pdf
- Go to Advanced >> Web Capture >> Append Web Page
- Browse to any file on your system (it doesn't matter which)
- Click on the Settings button
- Unselect the options for headers and footers on each page
- Click OK
- Click Create
- Close the pdf without saving
- Now you can create a pdf from multiple files without the file path of the originals showing up in the headers and footers.
