Adobe Encore CS4 Library Content Missing

March 30th, 2010 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

I just spent the last day trying to figure out why my Encore CS4 didn’t have any library content. I also found out the library folder was missing entirely from the Adobe Encore folder in the install.

I’m using the boxed DVD set, not the download. I tried reinstalling Encore a few times already; also looked for a “Encore Library Content” to install but there wasn’t such an option.

After digging through the discs a bit, I finally found a folder called Premiere Pro Content. Inside is another folder called “Adobe Encore CS4 Functional Content”. Installed this and it fixed the issue. I’m not sure why it wasn’t part of the original setup/install and had to be put in this way. I’m just hoping this helps anyone else that might be stumped about this.

I’m running…[More]

PDF Creator Borderless Word Doc

February 6th, 2010 | Posted by pftq in 42 | #
  I recently ran into an issue where PDF Creator was cutting off the top of my documents that were too close to the edge.  It's strange because the sides and bottom of the pages were okay, so it didn't seem like a border-issue (and PDF Creator isn't a real printer anyways).

   To fix it, go to Print Options for Microsoft Word and make sure <strong>"A4/Letter Resizing" is turned off</strong>.

I am guessing if you set the correct paper size in PDF Creator's options, this would fix it as well.  Usually however, I just print straight to PDF without changing any settings, so this is the preferred method for me.

Embedding Stock Charts on SMF Forums

December 28th, 2009 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

So I was looking for a way to embed stock charts into posts for SMF Forums, probably via bbcode or tags. I checked Google all morning and couldn’t find it though. If it exists, please redirect me because I’m sure it’ll be much better than my makeshift solution. :P

In the meantime, I modified my forums to use a tag called [schart]. When someone types [schart]SYMBOL[/schart], it shows the stock chart in its place.
The editing isn’t complicated, but you need another site to embed from. Right now, I’m using Wikinvest, but it’s a bit slow and heavy (it’s interactive and flash, fancy stuff). If anyone knows a good, fast-loading static one, it’d be nice to know. :D

For the code,…[More]
