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:

  1. Open any pdf

  2. Go to Advanced >> Web Capture >> Append Web Page

  3. Browse to any file on your system (it doesn't matter which)

  4. Click on the Settings button

  5. Unselect the options for headers and footers on each page

  6. Click OK

  7. Click Create

  8. Close the pdf without saving

  9. Now you can create a pdf from multiple files without the file path of the originals showing up in the headers and footers.
