When I want to export a pdf file as a rtf file it exports it as an empty 4k file. Is what I’m trying to do possible or what am I doing wrong?
I’m running OS X 10.4.4 and I can export a PDF file as RTF text with no problem.
Can’t check right now, but I think this routine uses PDFKit in Tiger and probably won’t work under OS X 10.3.9.
Of course, an image-only PDF has no text and the result would be either a failure or an empty file.
Thanks for the reply. I am running 10.4.4 and the pdf is largely text but it still only ends up as a 4k file
Sorry, I didn’t catch that you are using DT Personal when I first replied.
With PDF documents I succeeded in exporting as plain text but not RTF or RTFD, using DT PE.
I discovered that myself as it will only export as plain text. Thanks
The public releases of DT Personal/Pro (1.9.6 & 1.0.2) do not yet support this but the next releases will.
Just select all bookmarks and either drag & drop them to the Finder/Desktop or export them via File > Export > as Files & Folders… This will create the standard webloc, mailloc etc. files.
Or use File > Export > as Outliner Processor Markup Language… if you’re using DT Pro. This will create OPML files which most outliners & RSS readers can import.
