I haven't used Acrobat yet, but when I did my research on distributing
manuals on CD-ROM, no one mentioned that the Acrobat file sizes were
large. HOWEVER, I was told that the pdf files used to create those
Acrobat files were "big. Really big." Could this difference in
experience be the result of confusion over which files are being referred
to? Or could it be because of the content of the files differs
(graphic-intensive versus text-intensive)?
