I don't have alot of experience with Envoy, but have used Acrobat quite a bit.
Acrobat seems to be much more widely used, and has the definate pluses of
being able to save Pagemaker files as .pdf file.<
Envoy is a printer driver that can be used by any Windows program to produce
Envoy (evy) files, so you can easily turn PageMaker files into EVYs. So the
"plus" above is no plus at all.
