Q: editing

A document with editing marks was e-mailed to me. I used the track changes to accept or delete, then the save. When I reopened the same document the editing marks that I previously deleted where there again.

Please anyone help! I have a deadline.

Preferred Solution: editing

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Some searching through google, "alternativeto", YouTube, for video and audio editing or recording software, FREEWARE, showed BandiCam, Screencast-o-matic, Audacity, and I've been aware of Windows Movie Maker.
I would like to be able to make audio adjustments and audio changes to a few screencast videos.  I do not really undestand Audacity; but tried learning it many years ago.  I am absolutely not confident nor comfortable with learning Movie Maker; I am not sure how to handle Bandicam, having tried it briefly many many months ago.  I am comfortable with and have used Screencast-o-matic, the free downloadable version, a few times, and it was fairly easy to learn and to use.  I would just like to learn and use something a little bit more clever than Screen-cast-o-matic, and to edit or make changes to some video recordings.  FREE/FREEWARE wanted.

A:Video editing or including audio editing or recording

Hey, cafejose! I have used Movie Maker before. It is not that difficult in fact. And for freewares, then you can see some recommendations of ShowMore. This is a newly-built website that I am very fond of and I get quite a lot help from its application. I always take it to record Skype calls but I think it can also solve your problem here. For more alternatives, I advice you to take these free recording tools introductions for your reference.

Hi, are there any ways of using windows movie maker to open a DVD for editing? I have a DVD from holiday, and I want to post parts of it on facebook. Do I need to invest in another software? If I do, which one?


A:DVD editing

If you'd like to edit a DVD, you'll have to encode the DVD into a more readable format. Try .avi. You'll be able to edit it from there. Ahead DVD ripper is best for me and my fiance's computer. You'll need to buy it, though. There's no free software to do this, since it's effectively backing up the DVD.

Good riddance.

I'm trying to learn here. I SSH'd into my iPhone and found a file I want to edit for a game called Dungeon Hunter. The thing is this file is based in Hex. I don't know how to edit it. I went and got the program HxD. And I have looked up how to do this stuff. I've asked many other websites but TSG is loyal and everyone is helpful.

My biggest thing is I wanna learn how to control and edit my character stats. Change how much strength or dexterity my character has and so on and so forth. If maybe I hosted the file or answer any questions could someone help me in any way?

I think it would be great for me to learn so I can just learn something new but I don't understand the whole binary thing and no website has been helpful enough.

Anyone able to help me out?

Acrobat is likely the easiest tool for the job at this point. I haven't used Acrobat for several years but I assume its clunky as you mention. I would look for another way to produce an invoice, like a template with logo, header, footer already in place.

I have a PDF file (read-only). I want to do some changes to the file. How do I do it ? I have installed free version of professional DVD writer thinking that I could edit that reader. But this didn't work out. The one I have downloaded installed as a virtual print driver. I guess this is basically to convert the documents into a PDF file. Now my question is what is the way for me to edit the existing PDF file. Can someone help ?

A:Editing PDF

If the PDF file is "read only" thats quite normal. Its designed to NOT be able to be edited.
If its "protected" as well to prevent diassembly (quite common) then you can not edit it usually, even with the software that exists for conversion. Some are created as an "image" which is also non-convertable.

If its not protected, you can copy and paste the text to Word, but formatting is lost usually.

You need the full Adobe Acrobat (not a printer or the free reader program) to allow editing of the PDF, or a similar program. I use a commercially available (not free) SolidPDF converter to convert PDF to Word, but it will only work for non-protected documents.

There may be free ones, but I never found one that worked for me.

But please be careful, if the document is a form or any other quasi-legal or contractual document, conversion, editing and reconverting will invalidate it in most cases. Thats why many documents are sent in PDF, so their integrity is assured.

I work with, and issue such documents.
If anyone ever edited and sent one back it would go straight in the trash.
If its a non-commercial issue, it should not be a problem, and I recommend SolidPDF Converter.

I have a Panasonic digital camera with a movie mode with sound. It records in .mov format. I can play the files using Quicktime, of course, but I need to be able to edit them.
Remember, I want freeware!
I've searched all over the net for a freeware video editor that will perform similar functions to Windows Movie Maker, but on .mov files, but I haven't had any luck.
I've also looked for a freeware program to convert .mov to .wmv files so I can simply use Movie Maker. But I haven't found anything that can convert .mov to .wmv with little or no loss in quality.

Is there anything out there that can do what I want in a free, convenient package?

P.S. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the one program I've found and actually considered: SUPER. I want to know how the quality of the conversion is, and how usable the interface is (one site that reviewed it said it was difficult to use).

Our IT department as messed up. I had a multipage scanner and a flat bed connected to my pc. A colleague was having problems with their multipage, so he took mine. I don't know how (neither does he), but the link between my flatbed, and Adobe has gone. My pc knows the scanner is there, but Adobe Acrobat doesn't. I only have Acrobat 5.0, and although he re-installed it, it still won't work. He got it to scan into Word, but that doesn't help me edit pdfs. He then tried Foxit reader to scan, but the result is pixelated, and something we couldn't send on to customers. I also had WinPDF, which I got from Giveaway of the day, to allow me to edit/erase text on a pdf, which was useful if someone had written on a printed document, and you wanted to remove it. Basically, what I'm asking is, is there software out there for scanning/editing pdfs, that is either free, or reasonably cheap, as we are not in a position to spend large amounts of money.

A:PDF Editing

See if the scanner manufacturer has a newer version of the full driver package; also check this resource and see if it would help: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-scanner-issues-acrobat.html

i am trying to figure out what i need to buy to transfer my (vhs-c) tapes to dvd. My husband uses macs, but we have a pc also. He wants to edit the vhs-c tapes (which can be made into regular vhs with the ADAPTER), and put them to dvd.

any recommendations...


A:vhs to dvd with editing

You'll need two things:
1) A method to capture the video/audio (hardware)
2) Software to edit/change and write to dvd.

Before you begin though, realize many home dvd players will NOT play burned media. They eject burnable media and wont play them as normal dvd's. If you have a dvd recorder or home theatre pc with a dvd drive, these should play them just fine.

Another caveat is protected VHS tapes may have macrovision code on them to prevent copying. If these are home videos, this isn't a problem. If they are recorded TV shows (some send protected macrovision) or store-bought videos, it could be a problem.

Now for what you need.. to address #1; hardware capture.
The cheapest route is a VIVO capable or AIW-style capture card. These have video-inputs and you can use freebie software like AMCap or Movie Maker built into Windows XP as the software to capture. Most VIVO cards or AIW cards have support for S-video or composite (RCA cable) input and you just record to your hard disk the video. You can capture audio at the same time by using an adapter on the line-in/mic-in on your soundcard, or AIW cards have their own audio input jacks already. Either way, no real difference.

This will allow you to capture your vhs recordings to a file on your PC.

Step #2 is the software to edit/author your captures and record to CD. Again, Movie Maker included with windows has some easy methods to do this. You may wish to experiment with this right now... Read more

Hi all,

I have a car stereo that plays MP3 from CD, SD and USB, but the problem is that the player misses the beginning of each MP3 track.

So, is there a program to use that is capable of adding silence to the beginning of a track and that can handle multiple MP3 edits?

I have the program "Audacity" but I'm not sure if it can do batch edits.

Any help here would be much appreciated.


A:Help with MP3 editing

First I would check to see if there's something wrong with the Mp3 files themselves. Get MP3 Diags and scan some of your files to see if they're damaged.

The program will also repair most types of damage.

Hey guys, I really need to Edit a PDF. Just a simple Circle or Oval in Red, highlighting something. So I did my usual Google search and found one article here. It was no help so though I would ask the question myself.

1. Is there a free PDF Editor for W7?
I don't think I am interested in a Trial Version.


2. I see this Adobe Link, but don't want to use it in fear of it being a Trial Program. I know Adobe stuff usually an't free. I'm sick and broke, need to Edit this Document for my doctor. I'll leave this link in case someone can tell me their experience. I'm guessing/hoping this is an older version that they are letting folks download for free.

If this don't work, I will re-scan the Document and save as png or something, that way I think I can then Edit it. Either way, I need to learn to edit these things,, so that I can help other computer folks as you guys do. I participate in other forums and try and help others often, mostly with Linux.

I've recently reconfigured my internal HDD on my Inspiron Laptop. I deleted the Dell partitions and repartitioned the drive so I have one for the OS and programs and another for Data. I moved the My Documents folder (using the correct method). I also deleted and old User folder from Documents and Settings which remained after I deleted the user in User Accounts. I looked in the registry and found numerous entries related to the deleted user account. What I did from that point was to run my old dependable registry tool, jv16. I'm sure some the old timers will remember it. Of course, I only use it to identify invalid entries, then use that list to manually edit the registry as I see fit. Everything is backed up with Acronis,so I'm pretty comfortable doing this.

Now to my question... Since I moved the My Documents folder from the C:\ drive to the E:\ drive, jv16 shows all of the folders, files, etc, contained in My Docs as invalid registry entries which contain C:\ in the string. There are identical entries in the registry except they start with E:\. I'm not even sure this is a valid question.

I'm unsure about deleting the identified entries and what effect it may have on accessing the files in My Docs. Obviously, not a big deal just to leave the entries or delete them for that matter, but I'm just playing around and continuing to learn. Thought maybe someone had already been through something like this and wanted to see what they have to say abou... Read more

A:Editing Registry

Most around here don't recommend registry cleaners, I say they are OK if you know what you are doing, me thinks you do.

Yes I like that old JV16 reg cleaner, it keeps a backup of the entries it deletes, if I remember correctly? You can restore them if needed.
