Yet Another "I Love My Company" Entry

[weather|sunny/cloudy]
[mood|happy]

Okay, I know this is getting old =)

I'm being fed and paid today. Again. These people amaze me! We have occasional Lunch'N'Learns where all the company is invited, some form of Mid-Day Sustenance is provided and someone gives a 1 hour presentation on a topic of their specialty that they think the rest of us would be interested in.

It's usually related to work, although I don't think it has to be. Someone joked about making me do a Lunch'N'Learn on my first day... I was like, ummm... maybe I can show everyone how to do origami. =D

Anyway, today's topic is Dissecting and Picking Apart the PDF Format In Hopes of One Day Deriving Principles on which Heisenberg Compensator Technology Will Be Based.

Okay, maybe not the Heisenberg Compensator part. But I still love this company.

Quick Question...
You wouldn't know how to copy a graphic from a PDF document and get it to CLEARLY paste into a FrameMaker page would you? Everytime that I do, it comes out fuzzy, like a photocopy...although I guess that it essentially is.

Re: Quick Question...
Hmmm... I don't have a whole lot of experience with PDF (I've never been on a PDF project), but I'll ask for you. It sounds like there's either a wacky setting somewhere or the quality of the original object is fuzzy.

If all else fails, can you do a screen capture and use that instead?

Actually screen capture the pdf graphic? Hmmm...I didn't think of that. It may work!!! I may have to actaully load up the application that I am writing about and take a screen capture from there...(trying to avoid that...this app. is ancient!)

Thanks for your help! Wish me luck!!!

*erf* Ancient apps are nasty... =P You could always look for a version of the same app that has been ported to newer OS's...

"ALT-Print-Screen" (captures the active window only) is your bestest friend =) Good luck!!
