Hereís a follow-up on how I solved the excel created schedules into pdf printing problem in Acrobat 9.
Adobeís interface is dismally obtuse, but once you figure it out itís quite easy & powerful.
This same process will probably work in other versions of Acrobat.
First, create the door/window schedule in excel, highlight the selection and print it to pdf.
Open the schedule in Acrobat. Be sure that the advanced editing toolbar is displayed: Tools>customize tool bars> (checkmark) advanced editing toolbars.
Select the crop tool, and crop the schedule close to the outer edge of the grid.
Select file>save as, and from the file type dropdown choose TIFF. You can choose PNG, JPG etc if you prefer, but I donít know if the printed results will be as good.
Open the page in Acrobat where the schedule is to be inserted- in this case the floor plan page.
Choose the Touchup Object Tool. Itís the one on the far right of the advanced editing toolbar.
Right click in the document. From the popup shortcut menu, choose> place image.
Navigate through your file system, and select the schedule TIFF .
Acrobat will place the image in the upper left corner.
You can then continue to use the Touchup Object Tool to move and resize the schedule within the page. The arrow keys can be used for precise positioning.
Thatís it! You can see the results in the attached screen shot.
