Removing Headers - yet again

Sorry to beat this same subject to death but I am stuck. I am trying to remove headers (and some footers) from hundreds of pdf documents so I would like to automate the process as much as possible.

In an earlier thread someone suggested using the crop feature in Acrobat which I didn't know existed but I thought was a great idea. I have found out that Crop on its own isn't good enough since it merely hides the headers and footers. Someone else suggested that you should use the preflight functionality in Acrobat. I have Acrobat Pro 9. This is where I get stuck. Has anyone got a specific set of instructions to create a profile, or whaterver I need to do in Acrobat to remove the headers and footers.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

Jackie

There's a new pdf converter on the way, but that may be a longer wait than you want.

I haven't played with any of the conversion options, but I have played with the RSS recipes, and there are some fantastic tools for stripping things from html. Perhaps someone here can tell you if BeautifulSoup can be used during conversion?

Alternatively, I might look at SED (Stream EDitor) during an intermediate conversion step. It can find and strip text easily. I suspect there are better ways, but you did ask for "any" suggestions.

Good luck!
