Delicious Links To PDF Files

  1. 1. <ul><li>Login to with account / password. </li></ul><ul><li>Then click on the “links for you” link at the top of the page </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Click on a link that has not been turned into a PDF, but that has a full name ending in .pdf in the notes section </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Look to see if there is an “all in one” or “printable” version of the file </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This looks clean, so you are ready to print… but first… </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Go back to the link page and copy the title exactly </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Now you are ready, choose File > Print </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Make sure that CutePDF Writer is selected </li></ul><ul><li>Paste the File Name from the link you had copied </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Now log into the ftp server </li></ul><ul><li>You may notice that the directory structure is different then when you were last there </li></ul><ul><li>Be careful with all the folders here… </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>To identify which directory to copy the file to, look at the first two tags of the link </li></ul>First Second
  10. 10. <ul><li>Note that either the first or the first and the second tags are present as folder and subfolder </li></ul><ul><li>If the second tag does not exist as a folder, do not create it </li></ul><ul><li>Navigate within the folders and find the right place </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Then copy the file over to the server </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>In some cases you are faced with a much messier page and no printer version option </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>In this case we select with the cursor only the relevant text. </li></ul><ul><li>This can usually be done with a single cursor highlight… </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Here we are at the end of the blog post, which is all we want on this page </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Next, open up Microsoft Word </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>From the File menu, choose Page Setup </li></ul><ul><li>Then set the margins to 0.7” on all four sides </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Select View > Header & Footer </li></ul><ul><li>Scroll to the bottom of the first page </li></ul><ul><li>Type “page “ </li></ul><ul><li>Insert page number (button) </li></ul><ul><li>Type “ of “ </li></ul><ul><li>Insert number of pages (button) </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>There may be some artefacts, such as the yellow script indicators above, simply delete them </li></ul><ul><li>Then select all of the text (CTRL+A) and format to Arial, 11 point font </li></ul><ul><li>If the paragraph breaks are funny, then adjust for overall visual appeal but also page count (fewer pages = better) </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>This is looking good, next scroll to the bottom </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>You will notice that the last paragraph is really only an advertisement, and is making the document an additional page in length. Let’s delete that. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Much better, now 7 pages (the number of pages it counts will recalculate when we save, don’t worry about it) </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Save the Word document with the same name as the PDF, except for the .DOC extension </li></ul><ul><li>Once it is saved, we will print using the CutePDF Writer from within Microsoft Word </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>Note, printing from Microsoft Word, the CutePDFWritier will try and append “Microsoft Word – “ to the filename and will change all the parentheses into underscores. </li></ul><ul><li>Remove the Microsoft Word and change the underscores back into parentheses, then SAVE </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Copy BOTH the Word and PDF files over to the appropriate directory as indicated in the first one or two tags </li></ul>
