At the opening of pdf files get an error - OF 4.1.1

Postby sergey113 » Thu Sep 17, 2015 11:39 pm

At the opening of pdf files get an error:
"Main error input-output."
The PDF file has a size of 7.2 MB. Files up to 1MB open normally.
OS Windows 8.1 - openoffice 4.1.1 - PDF Import for Apache OpenOffice.
Expanding downloaded from here:
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/pro ... noffice-3x
There are at least some options out of the situation?

The link you referenced does state
Windows version - All releases
Compatible with OpenOffice 4: UNKNOWN
User feedback:
Compatible with OpenOffice 4.x?
up21% down79%

Additionally there is the following: If you are using Apache OpenOffice 4.0 or later, you must use another version: PDF Import for Apache OpenOffice. - See more at: http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/oracle-pdf-import-extension-openoffice-3x#sthash.QSqXN2sX.dpuf

There have been many reports of problems opening PDF files with OO, with or without the advised extension. In each case that I can recall, the recommendation is to use a proper PDF reader.
As you are using Ubuntu, I am not willing to make a recommendation as to a PDF reader.
I am sure that there are PDF readers available for your OS.

Sorry, wrong with the link. I put this version PDF Import for Apache OpenOffice
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/node/17351
And what is the correct version of the PDF viewer? I installed on windows 8.1 Foxit reader the most recent.
Thanks

That is the correct link for the OO 4.1.1 PDF extension for 64 bit linux.
The extension to edit PDF files in OpenOffice is intended to make cosmetic patches, not to undertake a major re-structuring of the PDF, so perhaps your 8MB file is too much for it to handle. As RusselB suggested, you may need to install (or link to if already installed) a proper PDF reader. On my Xubuntu 15.04 PDF files are opened and read by Document Viewer.

Yes, it is possible the file is too complex. I also have files up to 1MB open normally.

This opened promptly for me in Document Viewer (my system's PDF Viewer). I see no reason to try to open it in OpenOffice, as editing a map is not what the PDF viewer extension was intended to do.

The file is a multicoloured image of a map about 27" almost square (say 68cm), perhaps originating from AutoCAD.

I used this test for stability check. Expansion is required for removal and an insert of pages in multipage pdf.

I think you need to reconsider how you handle the multipage PDF file. A dedicated editor may be the best approach. On another thread (which I can't find) John_Ha has recommended a PDF utility which allows one to assemble a multipage PDF file from smaller PDF files. If you can locate this, you could make your text PDF file in OpenOffice and then amalgamate this together with your larger PDF images (generated in whatever application best handles them).

The utility I mentioned is PDFsam, or PDF Split And Merge. It is a free (or pay for more features) utility available from http://www.pdfsam.org/. The free PDFsam allows you to

- split your pdf documents (into chapters, single pages, etc.).
- merge many pdf documents or subsections of them.
- extract sections of your document into a single pdf document.
- visually reorder pages of a selected pdf document.
- visually compose a document dragging pages from selected pdf documents.
- save and load your workspace to automate your recurrent jobs.
- manage pdfsam settings and set a workspace to load at start up.

I use it to create a 30 page magazine PDF from multiple PDF files.

I understand that you need a separate program to work with pdf. But the difficulty is that I can not find a good free use for commercial purposes.
Thank
John_Ha
The program is a good and free for commercial use. But not like a woman who will work with her. In fact the program does not have a standard interface.
Also found a lack of that if we break up the page, and then they merge, the program sorts the 1 and 10 is not correct. We have to manage it manually.

If you want to edit PDF files you need Adobe Acrobat (or Adobe Cloud etc) from http://www.adobe.com/uk/#

I'm looking for a free tool. Nothing is better PDFsam not found. I tried about 20 programs. But therein or poorly functional or they are paid.
