PDF Document Assembly     

Commercial quality - Technical documents

 

 

WE PROVIDE HIGH -QUALITY & PROPERLY ASSEMBLED PDF DOCUMENTS, WITH PERFECT PICTURE ORIENTATION ON EVERY PAGE, CONTAINING CLEAN READABLE PAGES AND DIAGRAMS, FREE FROM FOREIGN NOTES, AND MANY MORE DETAILS THAT CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE PROFESSIONAL WORK .

 

MANY TIPS AND TRICKS HAVE BEEN LEARNED ALONG THE WAY, AND WE HAVE GONE A LONG WAY SINCE WE FIRST STARTED SCANNING DOCUMENTS, HOWEVER EVEN IN THOSE EARLY DAYS WE NEVER SCANNED A DIAGRAM IN SECTIONED PIECES LIKE MOST ONLINE MANUAL VENDORS DO.

 

WHILE THERE ARE SOME DRAWBACKS AGAINST USING MANUALS IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT, THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF THEM IS THAT YOU CAN PRINT ON DEMAND , PRINT WHEN YOU WANT AND PRINT AS BIG OR AS SMALL AS YOU WANT, ONE RULE HOWEVER  APPLIES TO ANY SCAN / PRINT JOB - YOU MUST HAVE A DIAGRAM SCANNED IN ITS NATURAL SIZE TO PRINT A GOOD PAPER COPY.

IF A LARGE DIAGRAM AS BIG AS A 25"x11" OR 34"x11" IS SCANNED AND SAVED IN ONE COMPLETE PIECE, IT IS THEN VERY EASY -- PROVIDED THAT IT HAS THE NECESSARY RESOLUTION -- TO PRINT ANY SELECTION FROM IT USING THE ACROBAT GRAPHICS SELECT TOOL, ZOOM IN AS MUCH AS DESIRED, AND THEN PRINT EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT, AND MOVE ON TO HAVE THE EQUIPMENT REPAIRED, NOW CONSIDER DOING THIS WITH THE DIAGRAM SCANNED IN THREE OR FOUR OVERLAPPED SECTIONS, MULTIPLY TIME LOST X $$$ AND THE EQUATION IS SOLVED, EXPENSIVE TOOLS OFTEN PROVE TO BE CHEAPER THAN CHEAP TOOLS

OF COURSE IT IS BETTER TO HAVE SOMETHING THAN NOTHING AT ALL, BETTER TO HAVE A BADLY SECTIONED DIAGRAM THAN NO DIAGRAM AT ALL, THIS IS A FACT TO WHICH ALL OF US WILL AGREE, THIS HOWEVER IS TRUE IF THERE IS NO BETTER SOURCE AVAILABLE, BUT.... QSERVICE IS HERE, AND YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL, OUR PDF MANUALS ARE THE BEST AND MOST COST EFFECTIVE DOCUMENTS MONEY CAN BUY

WE DO NOT CLAIM BIG FILE SIZES OR GRAY SCALE SCANS, ADJUSTED OR NON ADJUSTED, OR WHATEVER ELSE THE MISINFORMED AMATEURS MAY THINK OFF TO CLAIM FOR THEIR AMATEURISH OFFERINGS IN ORDER TO CONVINCE THEIR VICTIMS, WE AT QSERVICE ALWAYS DELIVER WHAT WE DEMONSTRATE HERE, AND THIS IS WHAT COUNTS.

 

WE USE THE BEST COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE GRAPHICS SCANNERS TO SCAN OUR DOCUMENTS, AND STATE OF THE ART  SOFTWARE TO CLEAN AND REASSEMBLE THE RAW SCANNED PAGES TO  PDF DOCUMENTS, AND WE DELIVER QUALITY LIKE THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLES ALL THE TIME AND IN ALL OUR DOCUMENTS

THIS IS HOW ALL OUR ASSEMBLED DOCUMENTS LOOK LIKE  -- PERFECT SCANS - WHITE SPARKLING PAGES - WITHOUT FOREIGN NOTES - NO SKEWED PAGES  -  MANUALS WITH A PERSONALITY BUILT-IN, THESE ARE COMMERCIAL QUALITY PDF TECHNICAL MANUALS

Now who can beat this ....??

 

Please Note

ALL  QSERVICE SUPPLIED DOCUMENTS ARE IN-HOUSE SCANNED FROM

QUALITY COMMERCIAL MANUALS, AND PROFESSIONALLY REASSEMBLED

THE ORIGINAL MANUAL STRUCTURE IS ALWAYS PRESERVED,  ODD PAGES ARE ALWAYS ON THE LEFT, EVEN PAGES ARE ALWAYS ON THE RIGHT

IF THE EVEN PAGE AFTER THE BEGINNING OR THE END OF THE CHAPTER IS BLANK, IT WILL APPEAR AS BLANK

THIS WAY IF SOMEONE WANTS TO PRINT A PAPER MANUAL FROM THE FILE ALL PAGES WILL APPEAR IN THE CORRECT POSITION

LONG DIAGRAMS UP TO 50"X34" ( IF & WHEN THEY DO EXIST )

 

 -- USUALLY FOUND IN  MOST OLDER HP AND SOME TEKTRONIX MANUALS -- 

 

ARE SCANNED & REPRODUCED IN ONE CONTINUOUS PAGE

 WE NEVER OFFER FOR SALE DOCUMENTS WITH CHOPPED OR SECTIONED DIAGRAMS, MILITARY MANUALS, FREE INTERNET DOWNLOADS

OR ANY OTHER MANUAL THAT WAS NOT FULLY PROCESSED BY QSERVICE 

WE INVITE YOU TO DOWNLOAD &  EXAMINE THE SUPPLIED SAMPLES

A few Words about Document cleaning

Contrary to all claims some inexperienced persons do, cleaning all pages within a document following the Scan process  is a must, if  the end result must meet strict quality criteria.

And at  Qservice we do follow quality work procedures,

Here you can judge the results by yourself

The following  demo is an extreme case of a carelessly littered diagram, one page is completely unaltered, just as it came out from the scanner, while the other is the same page after being cleaned by our team.

   A few Words about Text    searchable   PDF files

   

All our PDF files are delivered in text searchable format, this means that you can search for any word, phrase, part of word etc.

This is done by passing the scanned image through a character recognition program "OCR", and in our documents we employ the "searchable image exact" variation of searchable PDF's. this variation leaves the image file intact. since older documents do not use standard fonts, text searching within the documents is 95% accurate,

 

You can use any Acrobat reader version above 5.0 for searching documents for text occurrences , but using version 6.0 and above extends the search function to the bookmarks area, thus extending the ease of locating text.

  Printing  Efficiently 

 

The PDF of the service manual is not designed to be printed from cover to cover, the pages vary in size and must therefore be printed in sections based on page dimensions.

 

Non schematic diagram pages 

Data that does NOT INCLUDE  schematic diagrams is formatted to 8.5x11(A4), and can be printed on standard letter size and/or 8,5x11(A4) sized paper

 

Schematic Diagrams

The schematic diagrams are always provided full size, and formatted to 11x17(A3), some very large diagrams, such as twice the 11x17(A3), are also provided full size, However to help with printing are reformatted to 11x17(A3).

 

 A) If you have access to a large paper plotter or printer capable of outputting the full-sized diagrams, output as follows.

1. Note the page size(s) of the schematics you want to output as indicated in the middle window at the bottom of the viewing screen.

2. Go to the file menu and select Print setup, chose the printer name and driver to your large format printer, confirm that the printer settings are set to output the indicated page size or larger, and is set at "landscape" orientation.

3. Close the print setup screen and return to the file menu Select "print.."  input the page number of the schematic(s) you want to print in the print range window, choose OK.

 

 B) If you don't have access to a large printer you can always use a 8,5x11(A4) printer, to print all diagrams, you just have to click the selection "shrink to page size" or "Shrink to fit", and set paper orientation to "landscape"

 

Printing specific sections of a schematic

To print just a particular section of a PDF, rather than the full page, access the "Graphics Select tool" in the Acrobat reader tool bar.

1) To view the graphics select tool, press and hold the mouse button over the text select tool which looks like this   , this tool will expand to reveal additional tools, change the graphics select tool by placing the  cursor over the button on the far right that looks like  .

 

2) After selecting the graphics select tool, place your cursor in the document window and the cursor will change to a (+) symbol, click and drag the cursor over the area you want to print. When you release the mouse button a marquee (or dotted lined box) will be displayed outlining the area you selected.

 

3) with the marquee in place, go to the file menu and select the "print" option, when the print menu appears, choose the option under the section called "print range" which says "Selected graphic", Select ok and the output will print only the area that you outlined with marquee.
