I have first written some docs in html and set different font size for particular places. I am converting different html docs to pdf, and then collecting the pdf docs to a binder. Yet when I convert those docs to .pdf using Adobe X Pro, sometimes it ignoring the stipulated font size (I am not using css), but some pages are displaying larger text than some other pages--and sometimes on the same page.

bold, italics, font color all convert np, but just one some pages the text is larger than in other places

Can someone tell me what is going on here?

That is not what I meant.

 

There are different export and import methods that can be done with Adobe Acrobat or in combination with printing to PDF directly from the HTML file displayed in a web browser or using Save As.

 

Each method may produce different results.

 

What I was going to suggest is to create a blank HTML document directly in your web browser and cut the "middleman" (whatever text editor you're using , for that matter).

 

This way you can edit the blank HTML file using the develo

Hi @eljaydee 

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Adobe Acrobat X is an old and EOL application It may or may not work with the latest Mac and Win OS.  Please make sure you have the application updated to its last version 10.1.16

Yes, it is upto date to 10.1.16.
I am working on something important to me and it is to be filed with the
Human Rights Tribunal--so it just seems too... sloppy... considering. I
can't figure it out.

Yes, it is updated. 

I am working on something important to me, and to be filed in a formal venue, so the way it looks seems... sloppy.

I can't figure out what is what, and I know little about Adobe in any case.

Adding to @Amal.'s always valuable guidance,

 

Please describe what you meant by written some documents in HTML.

 

Did you programmed the entire HTML page yourself?

 

Or did you mean to say that you are trying to print a web page to PDF?

 

Please clarify.

Using a text editor and simple html e.g. <br><b><u><i><p><a>
<p style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 18px;"><a style="color:rgb(5, 80, 160); 

Then saving as an .html file. Open with a browser, it all display properly--but when I convert the file to .pdf, nearly everything displays properly except two things--font size, which sometimes will disply on all pages correctly, but sometime not, and sometimes different in the same one doc i.e. I write one doc about trucks, save as html and convert, and another file about rabbits etc. and after I am combining them as one .pdf file.

That is not what I meant.

 

There are different export and import methods that can be done with Adobe Acrobat or in combination with printing to PDF directly from the HTML file displayed in a web browser or using Save As.

 

Each method may produce different results.

 

What I was going to suggest is to create a blank HTML document directly in your web browser and cut the "middleman" (whatever text editor you're using , for that matter).

 

This way you can edit the blank HTML file using the developer console (F12 key) and you can edit HTML tags while seeing the result on real-time (but based on your reaction I assume this may be irrelevant to you since a newbie can't lead another newbie.. Right ?!? ).

 

Anyway, the point is that after you're done editing immediately print to PDF directly from the browser and then open it up with Acrobat.

 

Here is my example using a very simple tutorial from majorgeeks.com instead of using a Text Editor:

 

  • type this line in the URL bar  =>  data: text/html, <html contenteditable>
  • A blank HTML web page will be created, you can start typing or copying and pasting whatever you want  in there
  • To edit open the devloper console
  • you may save the HTML file or print immediately

 

See slides below:

PRINT HTML DOCUMENT USING ADOBE PDFPRINT HTML DOCUMENT USING ADOBE PDF

 

RESULT HTML TO PDF DOCUMENT OPENED IN ADOBE ACROBATRESULT HTML TO PDF DOCUMENT OPENED IN ADOBE ACROBAT

 

My questions and reasoning behind this method is because is simpler, you are alreader viewing on screen "what-you-see-is-what-you-get", tags are already auto-created, eliminating human error with so much typing, plus the ability to copy and paste rich text format strings from other browsing tabs (or programs) directly onto this blank HTML document (then focus on the actual HTML tags editing).

 

In addition, I would avoid using text editors such as Microsoft Notepad.

 

It may be possible to run into issues in which Unicode text encoding fail to map characters and their attributes correctly during text to HTML conversion to HTML to PDF conversion.
