  3. 3. Working with the Main Application Form 1.1 Naming the application file: Save the Main Form as a new file, using this naming convention: PI’s first and middle initials and the first 6 letters of the PI’s last name. Example: M.L. Robertson’s Main Form file would be named MLROBERT.pdf. Do not use any spaces, dashes, underscores, slashes, numbers or any other special characters in the filename. Doing so may cause an error when submitting electronically. 1.2 Application form format / protected forms: The Acrobat forms are protected so that users cannot change the format. This is done to ensure consistency among all applications received. Please do not attempt to alter the format of the forms. 1.3 Form margins: Margins (top, bottom, sides) for all forms are set to print at approximately ½” whenever possible. You may see some variation in the size of the margin on your printed documents. Such variation is acceptable as long as the forms are clear and legible. You cannot alter the margins on the application form. 1.4 Field size: A limit has been placed on the number of characters allowed in each field. This has been done to preserve the “fit” of the form on the printed page and to facilitate entry of information into the American Heart Association’s system for managing your application through the review process. Please abbreviate information, if needed, to fit it into the field. 1.5 Navigating through the form: Use the Tab key to move from field to field in the forms. You can also use your mouse to select any field. To move from page to page, use the navigation arrows on the Acrobat command bar at the top of the screen to move forward a page, backward a page, or to the beginning or end of the entire document.
  4. 4. 1.6 Using bookmarks to navigate through the form: The Bookmarks feature shows an index of the form pages in a separate pane on your screen: 1. Click on the Window menu and select Show Bookmarks(4.x) or Bookmarks(5.x). 2. Each of these Bookmarks can be clicked on to jump from page to page. 3. To hide the Bookmarks click on the Window menu and select Hide Bookmarks(4.x) or deselect Bookmarks(5.x). 1.7 Using drop-down code lists: For some field on the application form, a list of possible responses is provided. When you see a small box containing a down-arrow. It means that such a list is available. Using your mouse, position the cursor on the down-arrow box and click. Click on the appropriate response to record it on your form. In some cases, you MUST select a response from the code list, while in other cases, you are strongly encouraged to select from the code list, but you may type in your own response if you do not find a response that is appropriate on the code list. 1.8 Using the undo function: The Escape key functions as the Undo command in Adobe Acrobat. You can undo your most recent keystroke if you make an error. For example, if a form field is highlighted and you type in a single character, whatever was already in the field will be erased. To retrieve the lost text, press the Escape key. 1.9 Project Title field: (using more then one line of text) The project title field does not automatically wrap to the second line as you type. Use the Tab key or mouse to move to the second line. 1.10 Inserting text into the Project Summary field: You may copy text from existing documents into the form fields. (Example: project summary field). These documents may be in other word processing formats such as Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc. Warning: When you paste text into the Acrobat form, any special formatting will not be retained. Examples of special formatting are underlines, boldface, special characters, Greek characters and tables. Please re-read and revise text once you have copied it into the Adobe form to ensure that it is still clear and accurate. You may need to do some editing to fit your information into the space allowed. When you copy and paste text from word-processing packages into the Acrobat form, boxes will sometimes replace carriage returns in the pasted text. These boxes will disappear when you tab to the next field.
  5. 5. 1.11 Applicant’s Name and Page Numbering: At the bottom of most form pages you will enter a page number in the appropriate field. When you have completed a page, use the Tab key or your mouse to continue to the page number field. You will also see a place for the Applicant’s Name at the bottom of each page. Once you enter the name of the Principal Investigator on line 1 of the first page (Project Summary Form), that name will automatically appear in all subsequent fields for the Applicant’s Name. Note: To ensure page numbers and your name appear at the bottom of any documents you create, you must use your word processor (Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc) to add a footer containing the applicant’s name and the page number before you convert the file to a PDF document. 1.12 Deleting pages from the Main Application form: Go to Document > Delete Pages and enter the page range to be deleted; then click OK. Warning: Save your work before using the Delete Pages command. You cannot “undo” the Delete Pages command once it is done, so make sure you have selected the correct pages to delete before you click OK. If you do delete a page that you did not intent to, please contact the American Heart Association at e-mail: promo@heart.org and we will send you the page via e-mail. Insert the new page into the Main Form before completing the fields in the form. 1.13 Inserting PDF documents into Main Form: Some forms, such as the Sponsor Information and Department Head form are provided separately and are already in PDF format. To insert the completed form into the Main Form, do the following: 1. Open the Main Form in Adobe Acrobat 2. Click on the Document menu and choose Insert Pages 3. The Insert Dialog Box appears. Select the file you want to insert so that it appears in the box next to Filename 4. Click Open 5. Decide if you want to insert the file before or after the selected page number 6. Click OK Windows users can also insert one PDF document into another by following these steps: 1. Set up your Windows environment so that Adobe Acrobat and Windows Explorer windows are tiled side-by-side. 2. Select and drag other forms or files from Windows Explorer to the document area of the open Main Form. Press CTRL while you are dragging the file, and the file will be automatically inserted without the insert dialog box appearing.
  6. 6. Difficulties Using Application Forms 2.1 Cannot open the forms in Adobe Acrobat or The forms do not appear in the Open Dialog Box when All Files is selected: Adobe suggests you save the form to your desktop, then click and drag the form icon into Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or 5.0. If this does not work, you may need to reinstall Acrobat 4.0 or 5.0, then re-download the Association’s Main Form and rename the form file. Next open the form by double clicking on it from the desktop. 2.2 Unable to type into form fields: Click on the “Hand Tool” on the Adobe Acrobat toolbar to enable you to type into the form fields. If you do note see the “Hand Tool”, make sure you have the Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or 5.0 installed on your computer. It is required to type information into our form and save it. You also need Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or 5.0 to create PDF versions of your research plan, bibliography, etc. Adobe Acrobat Reader will not allow you to save information typed into the forms. 2.3 Unable to copy and paste text into Department Head Letter form: Before the Department Head Letter Form is inserted into the Main Form click on the “Form Tool” on the Adobe Acrobat toolbar and double-click in the box where the text belongs. A FIELD PROPERTIES dialog box will appear. Under the OPTIONS tab, deactivate the character limit by removing the checkmark from the box next to “Limit of characters.” Click OK to deactivate the “Form Tool” click on the “Hand Tool” on the Adobe Acrobat toolbar and you will be ale to type on the form again. 2.4 Text in a form field does not stay visible on screen and does not print: Make sure you are using Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or 5.0 and not Adobe Acrobat Reader. The form may have been corrupted during downloading from the internet. Try downloading the form again. If the problem is still occurring, try these steps: 1. PC – Highlight the affected field using the “right” mouse button. A drop down menu will appear (Mac users should just highlight the field, no drop down menu will appear) 2. PC – Select DELETE from the drop down menu and the text in the affected field should disappear (Mac users should press the DELETE key) 3. TAB out of the affected field 4. Place cursor back in the affected field and type the appropriate text 5. Tab out of the affected field and the text should remain visible.
  7. 7. 2.5 Typed wrong PI name or Degree on page 1 of the Main Form. Now all of the application pages display the incorrect PI name or degree: Click on the PI name or Degree fields on page one to highlight the information. Hit the backspace key to delete the information, then re-type the correct name or degree. Do not use the Return key when finished; instead, hit the Tab key. By using the Tab key the form will lock in the information in the original field as well as correcting the footer information on the remaining pages. 2.6 Unable to select an award program from item six on the Project Summary Form: First, select who you are applying to, from item five on the Project Summary form. Then you can select the award program from item six. 2.7 Cannot delete a selection from a drop-down field: Click on the down-arrow and scroll to the top of the drop-down list. Click on the white space above the first item in the drop-down list to return to an empty field. 2.8 Cannot view an entire drop-down list at the bottom of the page: Go to the view menu, and check continuous. This will allow you to see the bottom of one page and the top of the next page at the same time. To make Continuous View the default setting each time you open the forms: 4.0 users go to File > Preferences > General. Change the Default page layout field to Continuous, and click OK. 5.0 users go to File > Document Properties > Open Options. Change the Default page layout field to Continuous
  8. 8. Creating the Proposed Research Plan 3.1 Creating a proposed research plan: We do not provide a form for the Proposed Research Plan. The proposed research plan is created as a word document, then converted to PDF and inserted into the Main Form (refer to 1.13 for how to insert PDF into Main Form). It is important that you add a footer containing the page number and name of the PI to your research plan before you convert it to PDF. All edits to the proposed research plan should be made in its authoring application (Word, WordPerfect, etc). Do not convert your proposed research plan to PDF format until you are sure it is final and does not require any additional changes. Windows Users: Microsoft Office 2000 users should use Adobe Acrobat version 4.05 of higher to create PDF documents. MS WORD using Distiller (Acrobat 4.0 or 4.05) 1. Start Microsoft Word and open the file you want to convert into PDF 2. Choose File > Create Adobe PDF or click the Adobe Acrobat PDF icon on the Microsoft application toolbar. 3.

In the drop down box net to Distiller Settings select Print Optimized 6. If you would like to give the PDF document a specific name and/or save the file to a particular folder, place a check mark in the box next to Prompt for PDF filename. Otherwise PDFMaker will automatically give the PDF document the same name as the original Word document and will save it in the same folder as the original document. 7. If you would like the newly created PDF document to open automatically in Adobe Acrobat, place a check mark in the box next to View the PDF file after creating it 8. Click Create 9. Acrobat will automatically create your file as a PDF document and will save it under the same name as your original file or prompt you for a filename. MS Word using Distiller (Acrobat 5.0) 1. Start Microsoft Word and open the file you want to convert into PDF 2. If you want to change Distiller setting choose Acrobat > Change Conversion Settings 3.

  11. 11. 3.3 Formatting problems when converting MS Word/WordPerfect to PDF. One or more of the following may happen: 1. PDF version has more pages then original document 2. Page breaks are appearing in the wrong places 3. Images have shifted or are not appearing 4. Blank pages have been inserted when they are not needed The above problems can usually be fixed by switching your printer to Acrobat Distiller. This can be done manually or you can force the switch by converting one page of your program research plan to PDF format. Perform a print preview in your word processing program and add hard page breaks where required to present an acceptable layout before converting the entire document to PDF again. Using Images 4.1 Formats: Adobe Acrobat converts/imports many image formats. Some of the most common formats used are: PowerPoint (*.ppt) Windows Bitmap (*.bmp) GIF (*.gif) JPEG (*.jpg) PCX (*.pcx) PNG (*.png) RLE (*.rle) TIFF (*.tif) PICT (*.pct) _ Mac OS only WMF (*.wmf) 4.2 Include images in proposed research plan – MS WORD A. Insert the image into your proposed research plan 1. Open your proposed research plan in Microsoft Word 2. Click insert > Picture > From File 3. Select the image file and click Insert B. Convert your proposed research plan into a PDF document C. Insert the new PDF version of your proposed research plan into the Main Form 1. Open the Main Form in Adobe Acrobat 2. Go to Document > Insert Pages 3. Select new PDF version of your proposed research plan and click Open 4. Tell Acrobat where to insert proposed research plan 5. Click Ok
  12. 12. 4.3 Resolution: Recommended image resolution is 150-300 dpi (dots per inch). No image should have a higher resolution then 600 dpi. Be aware of image size and how it will impact the overall size of your application file. Applicants may be difficult to submit electronically if larger than 10 megabytes. If necessary, remove the images from the file before submitting electronically. Please include the images in the original and paper copies of your application sent by mail. 4.4 Reduce the file size of graphic images: On application being submitted electronically, the applicant can change any color image to grayscale. This will drastically reduce the size of the PDF document that you are uploading to the American Heart Association server. Average image file size difference runs anywhere from 25% to 50%. This doesn’t have to be done, but it obviously will speed up the file transfer process. There is no function within Acrobat to do color to grayscale conversion. This has to be done either in the application that was used to create the graphic, such as Excel for a chart, or in an image processing application like Corel Draw of PhotoShop. This should be done before you insert the images into the word processing application that you are using to prepare the narrative portion of your grant application. You will want the color versions of your images or photos in the original and two printed copies (which become Reviewer sets) that you submit. 4.5 Improving the quality of images converted to PDF: Windows & Macintosh Make sure you are using the Print (Optimized) job option in Acrobat Distiller 1. Open Acrobat Distiller 2. Select Print (Optimized) from the drop-down menu next to Job Options 3. Re-create your PDF document Turn off downsampling of color and grayscale images in Acrobat Distiller 1. Open Acrobat Distiller 2. Go to Settings > Job Options 3. Select the Compression Tab 4. Under Color (Bitmap) Images uncheck Resampling (or Downsampling) 5. Under Grayscale (Bitmap) Images uncheck Resampling (or Downsampling 6. Click Save As 7. In the Save Job Options As dialog box, give your new setting a name which will be easy for you to remember Example: Print Optimized(no downsample),joboptions 8. Click Save 9. Click OK
  13. 13. 10. Your new setting will appear in the drop-down box next to Job Options 11. Re-create your PDF document Turn all compression and downsampling off except Compress Text and Line Art (this should always be checked) 1. Open Acrobat Distiller 2. Go to Settings > Job Options 3. Select the Compression Tab 4. Under Color (Bitmap) Images, uncheck Resampling (or Downsampling) and Compression 5. Under Grayscale (Bitmap) Images, uncheck Resampling (or Downsampling) and Compression 6. Under Monochrome (Bitmap) Images, uncheck Resampling (or Downsampling) and Compression Check the resolution of the original image in a photo-editing program. Re-scan or re- create the image if it’s resolution is less than 150 dpi. Macintosh Only: 1. Start Word and open the document containing graphics 2. Go to File > Print to open the Print dialogue box 3. Select File from the Destination drop-down menu 4. Change General to Save As File from the drop-down menu 5. Select Acrobat PDF from the Format drop-down menu 6. For Color Bitmap Images and Grayscale, compression should be set to Zip/JPEG High and downsampling should be set to 300 dpi (the default is only 72 dpi) 7. For Monochrome, compression should be set to CCITT Group 3 and downsampling should be set to 1200 dpi 8. Click Save to convert the Word document to a PDF document. Enter a filename and location for the new PDF document and click Save Potential Printing Problems 5.1 Check boxes show an “X” on screen but do not show when printed: Try the following steps: Windows: Go to the File menu, select Print and place a checkmark in the box next to Print As Image. Macintosh: Go to the FILE menu, select print. Change GENERAL to ACROBAT 4.0 or ACROBAT 5.0. Select Print As Image from the Print Method menu 5.2 Only the first two pages of the Main Form print and/or My Hewlett Packard printer freezes while printing:
  14. 14. This may be due to incompatibility between the HP printer driver and the Adobe printer driver. Try going to Hewlett Packard’s web site http://www.hp.com and download the most current printer driver for your model of printer. 5.3 Documents created in other applications look fine on the screen, but miscellaneous letters and other characters are dropped or missing when printing: Adobe installs its own driver, which supercedes existing drivers. We have had more success in resolving the issue by re-installing our printer driver. If you need assistance with re-installing your printer, please contact your technical support person. Adobe also offers lots of help in troubleshooting printing problems at www.acobe.com/support/database.html Assembly of Application 6.1 Refer to application instructions.
