  1. Adding text or graphics to a PDF file

    Using Acrobat Reader’s ability to add text et cetera has proven unreliable for me. On multiple occasions I have lost all the text added to a PDF file. When your filling in 20-plus pages worth of permit forms this is a huge waste of time and extremely annoying.

    I bought a packet of 500 labels, see below. On the left is the front of the package. A page with four labels is shown in the middle.

    Unused and printed labels

    These labels were probably originally intended for a matrix printer since the pages are strung together. The page boundary is perforated, so …

  7. Symbols for labeling chemicals

    This package contains Encapsulated PostScript versions of the symbols used to label chemicals, according to EU directive 67/548/EEC Annex II.

    Note

    From Januari 2012 these symbols will be obsolete in Europe. From that time onwards, all chemicals should be labelled according to the GHS. For pure substances (not …
