Re: A new type of PDF

As I said in my post, FM7 was using headless Distiller 5 (I operating from memory here, so...). If nothing has gone further on Solaris Acrobat, I suspect FM7.1 and FM7.2 use the same headless version of Distiller, with the same limitations. Someone should verify that by looking at the PDF output of these version of Frame Solaris.

But you can read PDFs distiller from Frame 7 Solaris with Reader 7 and Reader 6 on Windows, if that makes any difference.

I thought Solaris only supported Acrobat Reader 5. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyway, that kind of form has been around for a long time in Windows.
For Acrobat 7, and Reader 7 only, you can actually mark up PDFs for
purposes of review.

If a version of reader greater than 7 is available for Solaris, please
Edumacate me, because I need one.

the Acrobat output, but there might be some more in depth discussion in the
archives that describes exactly what you're giving up by just using the
headless Acrobat version that comes with Frame 7 (or 7.1). I'd be interested
in hearing the full answer since I'm not longer have access to the Solaris
platform to test this myself. It'd also be nice to know exactly what the
Solaris Acrobat versions are coming with 7.1 and 7.2. I seem to remember
that 7.0 had a headless version of v5.0 Distiller, but I may be
