Subject:Re: PDF995 (Acrobat alternative) From:cupton -at- syclone -dot- net To:poshedly -at- bellsouth -dot- net Date:Tue, 7 Aug 2007 11:43:47 -0400 (EDT)
I've used it for years with good success, but switched to Acrobat
Professional when some money came available. They've recently decided to
go to PDF Creator for those who need the free version.
It was interesting to me that when DocuShare was upgraded last year all of
the PDFs created with Acrobat Professional disappeared, and my "freebie"
versions didn't. They finally fixed it, and I don't know what the problem
I still use it at home.
