.Introduction

Neevia PDFresize is a software product that can be used to resize (scale or crop) PDF files. It comes as a command line tool, a graphic interface application, COM object and .NET assembly.

 

Supported platforms are: Windows  XP, 2003, Vista, 7, 2008, 2012, 8, 10 - 32 and 64 bit.

 

Installing and Uninstalling Neevia PDFresize

 

Before installing and/or using this product, please make sure you have carefully read the copyright notice and agreed to all of its terms. If you have any questions about the licensing agreement, feel free to call (954) 981.9252 or send an email to sales@neeviaPDF.com.

 

   To install Neevia PDFresize:

download and save the http://neeviapdf.com/prods/PDFresize_setup.exe file onto your hard drive. After downloading the file, double-click on it and follow the instructions. The installation procedure automatically detects your operating system, copies the needed files into your system directory and installs Neevia PDFresize.

 

Unattended installation:

To perform an unattended (silent) installation launch the PDFresize installer with /sp /very silent /norestart command line switches. Here is the full list of supported switches:

 

/SP

Disables the "This will install... Do you wish to continue?" prompt at the beginning of Setup.

 

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When Setup is very silent the installation progress window is not displayed. For example error messages during installation are displayed and also the startup prompt (if you haven't disabled it with '/SP' command line option explained above). If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command is not used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a “Reboot now?” dialog. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.

 

/NOCANCEL

Prevents the user from canceling during the installation process, by
disabling the Cancel button and ignoring clicks on the close button.

Useful along with /SILENT.

 

/NORESTART

Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it's necessary.

 

/DIR="x:\dirname"

Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Directory wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified.

 
/GROUP="folder name"

Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder
wizard page. 

/user="username", /company="company name", /serial="serial number" 

Use these switches to pass the registration info (username, company name and serial number) to the installer.

 

        To remove Neevia PDFresize from your computer:

 

1. Select Settings -> Control Panel from the Start menu.

 

2. In the Control Panel click Add/Remove programs and select Neevia PDFresize from the applications list.

 

3. Click the Add/Remove button to remove the program. A confirmation prompt is displayed.

  

Unattended uninstall:

To perform an unattended (silent) uninstall, launch unins000.exe from the folder where the application has been installed with /verysilent /norestart command line switches. Here is the full list of supported switches:

 

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

When specified, the uninstaller will not ask the user for startup confirmation or a message stating that uninstall is complete. Shared files that are no longer in use are deleted automatically without prompting. Any critical error messages will still be shown on the screen. When '/VERYSILENT' is specified, the uninstall progress window is not displayed. If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and '/VERYSILENT' is specified, the uninstaller will reboot without asking.

 

/NORESTART

Instructs the uninstaller not to reboot even if it's necessary.

 

          How to register Neevia PDFresize

After you downloaded the product run the installer and at the end of the process enter your registration info. If you do not have a serial number and simply want to test the product select Evaluate Product then click Finish. To register via the graphic interface right click on PDFresize.exe select Run as administrator, click About -> Register -> copy and paste your licensing info.

Using the graphic interface to resize PDF files

 

In order to resize files using the graphic interface you need to run PDFresize.exe located, by default, in the C:\Program files (x86)\neeviaPDF.com\PDFresize\apps  folder.

Click Add files to select the PDF file(s) to be resized. In case you want to resize all PDF files in a folder simply click Add Folder  and navigate to the folder where your pdf documents are. For multiple folders click Add Folders.

General Settings

                               

In this window you can specify what settings to be used during the file resizing process.

 

 

·         Optimize output file(s) for Fast Web Viewing - this option restructures the resulting PDF document for page-at-a-time downloading (byte-serving) which is especially important with large documents that can take a long time to download from a server.

 

·         Change page size - this allows you to select the page size and orientation for the PDF document(s) you want to resize. In case you would like to define your own page size check Custom Page Size and enter your values for height and width specifying also the measurement units. Check Scale to scale the page content.

Make sure that  Constrain proportions when scaling is checked in case you would like to maintain the original proportions between the new page dimensions and content

 

·         Resize page(s) - select All pages to resize the entire file or Pages to resize specific pages or page ranges.  Enter page numbers and/or page ranges separated by comma. Ex: 1,2, 10-15.

 

Output File(s) Settings - this allows you to specify where the resized file to be placed, which can be next to input file(s) or in a selected folder.  In case you would like to replace the original file simply select  Replace input file(s).

 

PDF Information

 

In this interface you you can specify Title, Author, Subject and Keywords for the resized file(s).

PDF Security

 

GS4.png

 

To encrypt the output PDF file(s), check Encrypt Document then select the encryption level from the Compatibility drop down box. There are 6 options:

  1. Acrobat 3.0 and later (PDF 1.2)  enables 40 bit RC4 encryption (weak - not recommended)
  2. Acrobat 5.0 and later (PDF 1.4) enables 128 bit RC4 encryption
  3. Acrobat 6.0 and later (PDF 1.5) enables 128 bit RC4 encryption
  4. Acrobat 7.0 and later (PDF 1.6) enables 128 bit AES encryption
  5. Acrobat 9.0 and later (PDF 1.7) enables 256 bit AES encryption
  6. Acrobat X and later (PDF 1.7 ext 3) enables 256 bit AES R6 encryption

 

 

Encrypt All Document Contents

When you select this option both the document and document metadata will be encrypted. Search engines will not be able to access the document metadata when this option is used.

 

Encrypt All Document Contents Except Metadata

It is valid for Acrobat 6 and later. Only the content of a PDF document will be encrypted. Metadata remains fully accessible for search engines.

 

Encrypt only file attachments

Valid for Acrobat 7 and later. Only file attachments will be encrypted.

 

Require a Password to Open the Document

This allows you to set a password for opening the encrypted PDF.

 

Change Permissions Password

This password prevents users from changing the permission settings. The user can view the file in Acrobat Reader but must enter the specified Permissions password in order to change the file’s Security and Permissions settings.

 

Permissions

 

Printing Allowed - Specifies the level of printing that users are allowed for the PDF document.

Possible values:

None - Disables printing.

Low Resolution (150 dpi) - Users can print but the resolution will not be higher than 150-dpi. Each page is printed as a bitmap image which may cause files to print at a slower speed. To make this option available set the Compatibility option to Acrobat 5 (PDF 1.4) or later.

High Resolution - Allow users to print at any resolution. PostScript and other printers that come with high-quality printing features can be used.

Page Layout, Filling in Form Fields and Signing - users can insert, rotate or delete pages and create bookmarks or thumbnail images, fill out forms, and add digital signatures. Creating form fields is not permitted. This option works only for low (40‑bit RC4) encryption.
