General Software Discussion / How do I control font size in PDF?
« on: November 14, 2013, 01:14 PM »

I am not familiar with how fonts are used in a PDF document, but quite often, I do need to convert MS WORD docx documents to PDF (for reading purpose).

I notice that I can save a docx file as a PDF document from MS WORD 2010 and its save option also lets me control how the PDF file is being generated, but it seems that I can't control:

1. The font type in the output PDF
I suppose I can embed the font as used by the source docx file into the PDF, but I just couldn't figure out how to do that?

2. I also don't know how to control the size of a font in PDF when it is being view at 100% document size.

Could anyone recommend a utility, sort of WORD to PDF converter that can do the above mentioned?

I don't mind paying a shareware price (definitely don't want to pay high price like Adobe Acrobat) for it, but I do require the converter program to be hyperlink aware. i.e. it must be aware of hyperlinks in a docx source and make sure they also exist in the output PDF (like what MS WORD save as PDF does)

The article is on a Hong Kong newspaper, talk about how harmful pre-school education can be. It starts by stating Germany law prohibit pre-school education and how successful Germany is, in producing talents etc. Sort of by forcing kids to memorize a lot of things in pre-school education we will destroy their creativity and analytic mind.

I'm not from here, but I live here. I can tell you:
the normal school-going age is between 6 and 7 years old. It would be unusual for a child to start school at 7 years of age.
I dont know if starting school at a younger age is allowed or not. Probably not - otherwise the ages of the kids would be very varied.

Of course, the norm is to go to kindergarten for years before that.

I suppose kindergarten is pre-school education. According to the article I have read, it should be forbidden in German. I am keen to know whether what the article says is true.

I read an article on newspaper, saying that in German there is law prohibiting pre-school education (education on kids younger than seven), is that true?

I have a quick run through on RightNote, unfortunately, it is quite different from Evernote 2.x

1. It has a tree-structure of folders to hold notes, instead of tag-tree. Evernote 2.xx does not implement folder-tree and tag-tree separately and I find that is much more efficient. To me this is a crucial difference between the two, they have totally different tagging mechanism.

2. Evernote 2.x allow dragging a tag and dropping it on a note to tag it, this is very convenient. RightNote can't do that.

Btw, I have tried (I have even signed up one month Evernote premium account in order to actually try out) the new Evernote and the main reason I gave up Evernote 4.x is, they have basically spoil the best part of Evernote - its tagging system.

New Evernote insists on treating every tag universally, which means a "tag" once defined will appear in all notebook. At first glance, that seems to be nothing a big deal, but once you have more than one content rich notebooks, you will be quickly frustrated by all the nonsense on the tag list... and the new tag listing is so clumsy and hard to use. What a stupid new version!
