Subject:can Acrobat files be edited? From:Eric Brown <eric_brown -at- SFU -dot- CA> Date:Wed, 26 Mar 1997 08:49:40 -0800
Adobe Acrobat experts:
A client has brought me this question (and they expect me to know the
answer, of course!), so I'm hoping that one of you can help me.
They're considering CD-ROM and Web distribution of their academic papers.
One of them has 'heard' that Acrobat files can be converted to RTF via some
shareware utility. The thought has spooked them -- they're very fearful of
Does anyone know of such a utility -- or whether the idea is even possible?
Or is there a better solution than Acrobat? Thanks in advance.
