Sorry to use the standard helpdesk line but if there was one what was the error message? Generally alot of the answers can be found by investigating what the error message says. If you can supply that then I’m sure we’ll be able to help a bit better. It could just be a Win2k thing as I’ve found that greating PDF’s on my Win2k machine isnt producing the same results as when using Win It will just stays in the printer que for about 3- 5 minutes, then says there is an error that the device is not connected.

It is connected as far as I can tell, i have re-installed Omniform before. That function of “printing to Omniform” doesn’t seem to work with my maching. Maybe I just need to re-install Omniform again? I am still looking for another way to do it though, that will function better.

This is probably not what you are looking for or have already thought of this but here goes. I’ve asked this question to some one with good doc experience.


While they are not experienced with ‘Omniform’ they’ve had this situation with other apps.

The experience is that converting to PDF is usually somewhat trivial but not going the other way. The problem and this may be dated material is that PDF is a proprietary Adobe format. There is no native editable version once it gets into PDF to my knowledge — pretty much, once you move a document to Adobe PDF — it is almost like having a printed copy, as far as working with it further electronically.

Oh, there’s also the solution of just re-typing the document. Anyway, hope this helps If I recall, Omniform will recognize faxed material as input. And you could certainly do a print to fax using whatever free faxware you might have available So that could be another way to get there. I suspect it will be similar to your.

You could just setup a HP4 driver and print to a file Printing to a fax would probably be worse than trying to recognize the Tiff. Omniform won’t import the printed file either, I have tried that also. Does anyone know of any way I can set my Windowsso that it will allow me to print to omniform from another application? If Omniform can accept a postscript input then print the PDF file using a postscript printer any will do and print to file command.

I hope Omniform can. Nope, Omniform can’t do it. I tried to change the extension to bring it in, but it would not recognize it.
