Untagging Interactive Maps


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


Two Questions:

1) Is Adobe Reader the only way to use the untag function? I tried it in preview and it doesn't seem to be working.

2) Is there a way to untag and then save the untagged version (apart from taking a screen shot) as an upload? I tried this with Adobe and it reverted it when I reopened in another viewer.

I use PDF-XChange Editor (the free version) to untag the stuff and then just use the snip tool from windows and save as a PNG. Works for me.

With the interactive maps I've used before, you can also use a pdf image extractor to extract all images, and it'll get the variants out that I'm interested in - grid vs no grid, and secret areas vs no secret areas :)

I've just now tried to do this with Despair on Danger Island, both the mod and the maps pdf, and I cannot get the images to extract...is there some trick?

I quit using roll20 and vtt's for a bit atm but when I was I used Sumatra PDF to extract maps pretty easily into Gimp. But ymmv.
