I have a PDF file that is portfolio. That means that a single PDF file contains many PDF documents (for example my PDF portfolio has 130 PDF documents). When I open this portfolio with the evince program I get this message: For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later.
I downloaded and installed the Adobe Reader 9 and everything went ok. I could open the portfolio and read all the PDF documents. Now, I am wondering if there is an open-source PDF reader that can read portfolios.
Okular could recognize the PDF file as portfolio. It could see all the PDFs as embedded files. That's good!
The bad thing is that cannot open them directly but you have to save them first. Also you can't save all of them instantly but manually one by one. And for 130 PDFs this is painful...
Well, the post is rather old, but as I just stumbled upon this problem: evince seems to does the trick.
I first didn't realize it and even installed stupid proprietary Adobe Reader 9.4.2, which - funny thing - only said that I should install an Adobe Reader >= 9 to view this PDF appropriately. Later I realized that my lubuntu native document-viewer, which is evince works out fine. You just have to open the side pane and choose to view the list of attachments. There you even can mark all PDFs and save them with one click.
I don't think anyone read the OP. He's asking about a PDF portfolio, not just a run-of-the-mill pdf file.
I've just tested Evince (3.18.2) with a PDF portfolio (*.pdf, PDF-1.7, created with Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.*);
yes, it opens a dummy page offering to download Adobe products, but if you switch the sidebar from "Thumbnails" to "Attachments" mode, you should see what you want
