TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Could you please summarize to the list? We are also considering use of
Acrobat, but have reservations about the hypertext links and how
labor-intensive it will be to maintain them. BTW, there seemed to be a
lot of interest in Acrobat at the STC conference, but again, I at least did
not hear of anyone who had worked with it to any extent. TIA!

Our department is about to undertake a large online documentation
project using Adobe Acrobat. I have seen some comments from fellow
writers about using Acrobat and I would like to hear from you if you
are using Acrobat to distribute online documentation on CD-ROM. We
will be creating a CD-ROM with an entire set of documents ranging in
size from 60 pages to 1,600 pages. We plan to update the PDF files
with future releases, and I would really like to know if anyone has
experience updating PDFs and how the hypertext links were maintained.
