I just ran head-first into this very same wall. I've basically spent a couple of weeks with Inventor and Google Docs, creating a 292 page, screenshot rich, compendium / tutorial for the CAD class that I'm going to teach this semester. And I can't download it as a pdf. However, I did find another workaround that is not mentioned above: Open the "Print" ...

The drawback is you may lose some formatting when opening some ...

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.

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 ...

Unfortunately, no, there's not currently a way to directly link to a PDF on SkyDrive. The closest you can get—using the built-in "Share" link—will instead open it in Office365's online Word viewer, for whatever reason. You can almost circumvent this by sharing the document, then, in the viewer, grabbing the URL that you ultimately download the ...

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

Some PDF documents (especially with accented characters) get strange encoding. You can see this when you inspect the properties of the PDF file (e.g. in Acrobat).

Google Docs actualy makes the table of contents in a correct manner, BUT, it's PDF translation is wrong. If you convert it to some other document format and use something like Word or LibreOffice to turn it to a pdf it'll work. Third party pdf converters also might work. I know that's not a great consolation, but it's a known bug. Why are they not doing ...
