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. Select the file, and be sure to click "Convert text from PDF or image files to Google Docs documents." Once you're in the subsequent uploaded document, you may have to clean it up a ...

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.

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.

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 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 ...

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.

There are quite a few websites that can handle documents and convert to PDFs. However, while there are many open source PDF converter applications, I have not seen an open source PDF converter web sites.

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) ...

See this thread on plotting map points from excel entries.

I was told by a guy who works in the unemployment office: You should always, always keep and upload a formatted plain text version. What happens behind the scenes is that PDFs and Word docs get parsed and mangled when the servers look for keywords in your résumé. Trust me; he's right.

You can submit a website with academic articles to Google Scholar (see Inclusion - Scholar Help). They specify: We accept journal papers, conference papers, technical reports, dissertations, pre-prints, post-prints, and abstracts. If your new institution hosts your papers as part of your CV or something to that effect, however, you might have an ...

There is no mention of the supported version number on either the Google Docs Viewer tool page or the View files in Google Docs page from Docs Help. I don't know if it is possible to give a complete answer to your question but my best guess is that there is not any officially supported version, but rather that the team tries to keep the tool as up-to-date ...

I haven't personally used them, but dpcloud looks like it might do what you want. You could also look into the possibility of using a livecasting service like Vokle/uStream/Justin.tv/LiveStream with a screen-recording tool. (Both approaches would just transmit a live recording of you navigating the presentation yourself. Vokle also has a system for taking ...

There is absolutely no way you can do that in Google Groups. It is not possible even in Yahoo! Groups. HTML and pdf files have to be sent as attachment even in GMail and all the e-mail services. At the best, what you can do is upload the pdf or html file to Google Docs/Google Drive or some similar service and share a link to it in the message.

Printing maps using material from Google Earth is a violation of copyright and Googles guidelines for the maps. You should buy a license to use a commercially available map or find maps without copyright restrictions. Perhaps openstreetmaps might suit your needs - be aware that they have their own open source-style licensing model which may not be suitable ...

Probably there is no easy way to do it. You can consider using LaTex for PDF creation - you will be able to track the "source code" of the PDF as any other source (SVN/Git/ etc.). You can also use use the pyPdf lib to convert PDF contents to plain text (which is easily track-able).

May be you can retrieve something like the headers and see the modified date? but you will need a script to do that. You could use the response of a service like http://www.rexswain.com/httpview.html And read the line: Last-Modified:·Thu,·31·Jan·2008·15:58:57·GMT(CR)(LF)
