How can I turn a 28 page pdf of a timeline, into a border for a single page document? [more inside]
I'm trying to turn PDFs made from presentations on the Prezi website (prezi.com) into text documents and am looking for a program to OCR them with. Since Prezi's PDFs come out rather odd with some text trailing off the edge that isn't pertinent to the current slide I need something that will allow me to make a selection box around the text I wish to OCR as opposed to auto OCR'ing the entire page. What Windows program should I be looking at?
I want to save documents as pdf files instead of xps files in using Windows 7 print utility. There's a plug in from Microsoft to do it in Office 2007 programs, but I want to do it with other programs, specifically accounting software. Anyone know a plug in to do this?

PDF-filter: I'm running a website that allows users to upload files. I'm looking for a converter that would allow User B to view a files uploaded by User A, even if User B doesn't have the same software used to develop the file. My guess is converting everything (that's not a simple image) to PDF would work, but my Google-fu is failing me and I can't find a PHP script or Apache module that will do this. [more inside]

I've got a PDF (a magazine). I'm trying export some pages from this PDF (my article), as a separate PDF. I'm on a Mac (10.6.7). This seems like it should be easy, but I can't print my selected pages to PDF (it's grayed out in the "Save to PDF" drop-down), nor can I find any options to save-selected-pages-as or export-to. My searches have only turned up now-obsolete, non-functioning programs like PDFlab and PDFsam. What am I missing? Should I just print out the pages and scan them back in?

Is what I want achievable with the software I currently have or should I forget the idea?
