Google Docs is great for this. You can upload a number of formats, and then edit the files etc. When you're ready to get the PDF, just do File -> Download As -> PDF

It doesn't appear possible at the moment; Unfortunately you cannot print or export comments to PDF at this time See answer here What is suggested is exporting your comments as a .doc file (then converting to .pdf perhaps ?) which apparently retains the comments. Hope this helps.

Try Google Docs. Go to docs.google.com. In the top-left corner you'll see the button "Upload". Clicking that, you'll be presented with a page where you can select the file.

Github uses content-disposition: attachment for PDFs, which downloads the file automatically on github.com. You can host the file on a static page provided by GitHub which can link to this file and update as you update the PDF. For that, you can see github pages.

LaTeX Lab (which is still in active development) is an online TeX editor and renderer, using the Google Apps framework. It works much like Google Docs does for WYSIWYG text editing, but with LaTeX. It is planned to eventually have sharing features like Google Docs as well, and already integrates with your Google account. I've used it a bit, and like it quite ...

The answer given to this question can help you here. efax.com offers a service to keep your existing number. You have to ring to discuss it. The number I see is a UK one - I'm guessing because the site detects your locale and offers a local service - so I won't post it here as it won't apply to everyone.

Adobe have an online tool for this under the Acrobat.com brand, there is a free plan if you want to try it out first http://createpdf.adobe.com/ I've also used http://www.freefileconvert.com/ in the past to quickly convert files and have been happy with their service

I think you can do all that with Google Docs. They have a PDF viewer and they also allow you to share docs by link. Here's a bit more info on PDF viewing from an older blog post of theirs: http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2009/09/view-online-files-using-google-docs.html [edit] An even easier option could be ZohoViewer. They allow you to upload a document, ...

I just tested out PDF to Word after a quick Google search, and it works perfectly. It'll let you convert an unlimited number of documents and send them to your email address.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "not converted" but Google does index PDF Files. Google can index the content of most types of pages and files. The most common file types we index include: Adobe Flash (.swf) Adobe PortableDocument Format (.pdf) AdobePostScript (.ps) Autodesk Design Web Format (.dwf) Basic source code (.bas) ...

I will assume your resume/CV is in LaTeX or TeX, since you already asked there. I used this method with my LaTeX resume the last time I was looking for work: Don't use fancy columns or layouts. PDF parsers seem to work from left to right, line by line, so text from columns get mixed together. Keep the text as one flow. Make it simple. Use a pdf to text ...

Yes, you can! File -> Email as an attachment -> Attach as PDF Then add your own email address to email the file to yourself. The PDF attached to the email will have direct links for both inline hyperlinks and plain URLs without any unwanted Google tracking.

If you're talking about Special:Book, then that comes from the Collection extension. That in turn uses several backends for generating the various formats. For PDF, the PDF Writer extension is used: The PDF Writer uses the Python Reportlab libraries to generate PDF based on a DOM derived from parsing mediawiki-markup using the mwlib parser.

Most probably arXiv reads the source code of the PDF. E.g. from a paper I have opened with Notepad++ <</Creator( TeX output 2011.03.09:1851)/Producer(MiKTeX-dvipdfmx \(20100328\))/CreationDate(D:20110309185222+01'00')>> note:maybe you want to try to ask this in academia.stackexchange

I would use Dropbox and put it in the shared folder so you can give a URL to share it. You can view the PDF in the broswer like a normal one too.

Unfortunately not, but you can use Foxit reader to open the document, create a bookmark of the page you last read and move the bookmark to the beggining of the bookmark list. So, next time you open the document, just click the bookmark entry you created before :-)

If md5sum does no report OK, then you ...
