14 7. Appendix: Creating PDF files 7.1. General Application forms, project update forms and other attachments which are sent to STW must always be converted to PDF format. STW has made the PDF format compulsory - Why? Portable Document Format (PDF) files show users on various operating systems (Windows, Mac and UNIX) a document without the original formatting of the document being lost. Grant applications often contain graphs, diagrams, mathematical formulas and various character sets (e.g. Greek symbols). The PDF format (and the freely available Reader from Adobe) ensure (if the right settings are used) that an application can easily be viewed and printed by referees and STW staff. No other document format provides authors with the possibility for fixing margins and page set-up, inserting formulas, and controlling the size and position of illustrations. In addition to this the PDF format guarantees you that the file will not be accidentally changed. When creating a PDF file you should follow the guidelines provided in the help texts. If you fail to do this then there is a considerable risk that your application will not be viewed by others in the format that you had intended. Why PDF guidelines? Your application (fact sheet and the attachments) will be merged by STW staff into a single document. This document will be distributed to committee members and referees for assessment purposes. Merging PDF files that have been compiled in different ways can give rise to unwanted results, unless the PDF files satisfy the STW guidelines. How do you create a PDF file? You can create PDF files using Ghostscript & GSview or Adobe Acrobat. Ghostscript & GSview can be downloaded free of charge from the Internet; Adobe Acrobat, however, is a commercial product which you must pay for. In the case of doubt we advise you to contact your ICT department. Instructions can be found in one of the following subsections. 7.2 Creating PDF documents with PDF Creating PDF documents with Ghostscript & Gsview 7.4 Creating PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat for Windows & Mac 7.5 Creating PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat for Unix Please note! PDF files are not allowed to be security-enabled. Security-enabled PDF files cannot be processed by STW Creating PDF documents with PDF995 What is PDF995? Pdf995 is software which allows you to create a PDF document from any application with a print function. Pdf995 works like a print driver which makes the use of this program very simple. What do you have to do? Download and install PDF995 Both files you have to download are self extracting. They contain compressed files necessary for the 14
15 installation of PDF995. First click on pdf995s.exe and choose Open in the dialogue window. The Pdf995 driver will be installed. Answer the question with No. Then click on ps2pdf995.exe to install the compatible postscript converter. Here you choose Open as well. Click on Accept to indicate that you want to use this converter in combination with Pdf995. A browser window will open with a welcoming text. You can just close this window. pdf995s.exe (1,29 MB) ps2pdf995.exe (3,12 MB) From every application you can print with, you can now use Pdf995. You can do this by simply adding a print job. Pdf995 is added to your list of printers. Select Pdf995 as printer and click on Print. A dialogue window will appear where you can name your file. After this a sponsor page of Pdf995 will appear, which you can just close. For more information check out the website of PDF995 (http://www.pdf995.com) (among other things you can find how to disable the sponsor page) Creating PDF documents with Ghostscript & Gsview What are Ghostscript and GSview? AFPL Ghostscript is software with which a PostScript file can be converted into other files such as a PDF file. PostScript is a general 'printer driver language': this describes texts, pictures and format in such a manner that every printer which understands PostScript can print these. Ghostscript is available for a large number of operating systems: e.g. Windows, MacOS and UNIX. GSview ( MacGSview for MacOS) is a graphical interface for Ghostscript. This makes it much easier to use Ghostscript. Further information about Ghostscript and GSview can be found at What do you have to do - Windows and MacOS? How you can create a PDF file from a document in Word, WordPerfect, TeX, etcetera is illustrated in a simplified form in the following diagram. [Word document Print to file PostScript file Convert PostScript file in Gsview PDF file] You first of all convert the file with the completed application form into a PostScript file by printing this to a file. You then convert the PostScript file into a PDF file using GSview/Ghostscript. How you do this is explained in four stages. Firstly you must download and install both Ghostscript and GSview. Stage 1. Download & install You can immediately download the latest versions of Ghostscript and GSview for Windows and MacOS at the end of this section. As soon as a new version of one of the programs becomes available, STW tries to make the files for this available via this is user manual. However, somewhat older ver- 15
16 sions might occasionally remain on this site. These will not hinder the conversion of your application to PDF format. You work with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT or 2000 Download Both of the files to be downloaded are self-extracting programs. They contain the compressed files necessary for the installation of Ghostscript and GSview. Click on the links below and choose 'Save' and not 'Open...' in the dialogue window. AFPL Ghostscript (5.90 MB) GSview 4.1 (1.65 MB) Installation Please note! Install Ghostscript first and then GSview. To install both programs go to the folder in Explorer in which you saved the programs. Double-click on gs703w32.exe to open the installation program for Ghostscript. Double-click on gsv41w32.exe to start of the installation of GSview. During the installation you can indicate where you want the programs to be installed. After the installation you can proceed further with Stage 2. You work with MacOS Download You need MacGSview to be able to use Ghostscript. Download and install this program first The second file is an update of the Ghostscript engine. You do not have to install the update but the results with the new version will be better. MacGSview works on every Apple Power Macintosh, Powerbook (with PowerPC). imac, ibook with MacOS 8.5 and higher. MacGSview 2.0b3 (3.31 MB) AFPL Ghostscript engine (2.65 MB) Install Start the MacGSview installation program. After installation the update of Ghostscript can be decompressed (you need StuffIt Expander for this). Make sure that MacGSview is closed. Drag the entire contents of the macgs-703-shlib folder to the GhostScript program folder. You will find the Ghostscript folder in Macintosh HD -> System folder -> Program support. After this the update will be used automatically. You can now proceed with stage 2. Stage 2. Install a PostScript printer Secondly you must install a PostScript printer (if needed). You do not need to have such a printer. You only need to install the driver for the printer. With the help of the driver you can save your application as a PostScript file and then later convert this into a PDF file. If a PostScript printer is already installed then you can ignore this stage and proceed further with stage 3. You work with Windows 16
17 Click on Start > Settings > Printers to open the Printers window. Double click on Add printer. With this you open the Add printer wizard. Select Local printer and make sure that there is no tick before the automatic recognition of a plug and play printer. Click on the button Next >. From the list of available LPT ports choose a free port (e.g. LPT1:). A free port will not have a printer name after it. Click on the button Next >. Select a PostScript Printer. A printer with which good results are obtained is the HP LaserJet 4P/4MP PS. We therefore advise you to install the driver for this printer. Do this as follows: - From the list of manufacturers choose HP. - After this select the HP LaserJet 4P/4MP PS from the list of possible printers. If necessary you can select another PostScript printer. You can usually recognise this from the suffix 'PostScript' or 'PS' after the name of the printer. - Click on the button Next >. If a warning appears that the driver is already installed, then choose Keep current driver file and click on the button Next >. Accept the name for the printer, or type in a different name. Select No for standard printer. Click on the button Next >. In the window Share printers choose for not sharing the printer. Click on the button Next >. In the window Print a test page, select No. Click on the button Next >. Click on the button Finish to complete the installation. After the installation you can proceed further with stage 3. You work with MacOS Open the Desktop printer management: open the folder Applications and then the folder Tools and start the program. If the window New desktop printer is not visible, then in the menu Archive choose New. Select 'Converter (Postscript)' and click on the button OK. Click on the button Change in the box for the PostScript printer description file (PPD). Select a PostScript printer description file. Choose one of the printer description files in the window that appears, for example the LaserWriter 12/640 PS (you can also choose another printer description with the extension PS). Click on the button Select. By default the printer will be placed on your desktop. If you want to save the printer description file in a different folder, then click on the button Change in the box Standard target folder. Select a file or create a new one. Click on the button Select. Click on the button Create... or in the menu Archive select Save. Type a name for this desktop printer file (for example 'PostScript converter') and click on the button Save. The installation is now complete. Go further with stage 3. Stage 3. Create a PostScript file If both stages have been successful you can convert the application form into a PostScript file. In both Windows and MacOS you can create a PostScript file by printing the completed application form using the PostScript printer you installed. To do this select the option Print to file. You work with Windows Open the application form in the program that you produced it in. In the main menu select File, Print. For the printer name select the PostScript printer that you installed and then select the option Print to file. Click on the button OK. Save the file under the name of your choice with the extension '.ps' of '.prn'. Click on the button Save. You can now proceed with stage 4. You work with MacOS 17
18 Open the application form in the program that you produced it in. In the menu Print... choose Archive. Select the PostScript printer you installed as the printer. Under Destination: check whether the option is on File. Under the print options choose Save as file. Set the setting Include fonts on All. Click on the button Save. Select the folder where you want the file to be saved. Type in a name and click on Save. You can now proceed with stage 4. Stage 4. Create a PDF file from your application form If everything has proceeded satisfactorily you can now create a PDF file of the application form. You work with Windows Click on Start, Programs, Ghostgum to start up GSview. Open the PostScript file containing the application form you completed and in the menu File, choose Convert. In the dialogue window Convert click on the button Properties. Set the following values for the properties listed below: - Compatibility level = EmbedAllFonts = true - SubsetFonts = true - maxsubsetpct = 100 Click on the button OK. Set the options in the Convert dialogue window as follows: - Device -> 'pdfwrite' - Resolution -> as high as possible - Pages -> all (Click on 'All pages') - Paper size -> 'Fixed paper size' Click on the button OK, choose the right folder and type in the name you want to give your file including the extension '.pdf' and then click on the button Save. You have now completed converting your application form into a PDF file. You can now attach the file to your application by using the section Appendices of the Iris fact sheet. You work with MacOS Start up MacGSview. In the menu File choose Convert... Select the folder in which you have saved the PostScript file of your application, select this file and then click on the button Convert. In the window Convert to select the folder in which you want to save the PDF file. Check that the value PDF has been selected under the option Convert to. Then click on the button Select. In the window Export Options you can change several settings. You do not need to change the standard settings. Click on the button Export. You have now completed converting your application form into a PDF file. You can now attach the file to your application by using the section Appendices of the Iris fact sheet. What must you do - Other operating systems? Other operating systems are either rarely used or require the intervention of a systems manager. Therefore no further instructions can be provided for these systems. We refer you to the user manual for your system, to your ICT department and to the Ghostscript website (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/) Creating PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat for Windows & Mac Installing and using Adobe Acrobat Distiller Install Adobe Acrobat version 3.0 or higher. 18
19 If you have installed Adobe Acrobat then you will also have Adobe Distiller; this is included in the Adobe Acrobat package. Use Adobe Distiller instead of PDFWriter. The following problems are associated with PDFWriter: - Illustrations are not satisfactory processed and this results in blurred illustrations. - Settings for fonts are not correctly transferred (important for TeX and LaTex users), as a result of which the fonts are not displayed in the correct size. - Incorrect font sizes are a frequently recurring problem if files made with PDFWriter are merged. In such cases the compiling of your application into a single PDF document by STW staff can result in a scarcely legible application. If despite these problems you still choose to use PDFWriter, check whether the PDF document contains the desired result by examining the application without the local fonts being enabled. Download the 'Job options' file for Distiller For further information (PDF, 378KB), (http://www.planetpdf.com/planetpdf/pdfs/issue02.pdf) Click on the hyperlink below. A web page will open. Distiller Job options file In the menu File, select Save as. Look for the directory where Adobe Acrobat is installed (most likely is c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 6.0) and save this file in the directory "DistillrSettings" under the name: "iris.joboptions". Under "save as type" choose text file (*.txt). Close the window. We advise the use of this settings file in order to achieve the best results in terms of fonts, layout and the resolution of illustrations. Setting up Distiller with the Iris job options Start up Adobe Distiller. Set the job options in Iris. Distiller and Distiller Assistant will now use these job options for compiling PDF files. Creating a PDF file with Distiller Distiller creates PDF files by converting Postscript files into PDF format. It is not usually necessary to create a PostScript file; see the following stages: You work with Windows: Choose File, Print in the software program you used to produce your application (e.g. MS Word). Choose Acrobat Distiller as the printer. The option Print to file must be DISABLED. Click on OK. You work with Mac: Choose File, Page set up in the software program in which you made your application (e.g. MS Word). Choose Acrobat Distiller as printer and click on OK. 19

Check the result In Adobe Acrobat Distiller: in the menu choose Image and DISABLE Use local fonts! 7.5. Creating PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat for Unix Installing and using Adobe Acrobat Distiller For UNIX, no newer versions have been issued since version 3.x. If you have this version then you also have Adobe Distiller; this is included in the Adobe Acrobat package. Use Adobe Distiller instead of PDFWriter. The following problems are associated with PDFWriter: - Illustrations are not satisfactory processed and this results in blurred illustrations. - Settings for fonts are not correctly transferred (important for TeX and LaTex users), as a result of which fonts are not displayed in the correct size. - Incorrect font sizes are a frequently recurring problem if files made with PDFWriter are merged. In such cases the compiling of your application into a single PDF document by STW staff can result in a scarcely legible application. If despite these problems you still choose to use PDFWriter, check whether the PDF document contains the desired result by examining the application without the local fonts being enabled.
