Hello, all. I have created several little manuals that include screen
shots w/Word 97 callouts emphasizing features, things to avoid, and the
like. I'm making them into PDFs w/Acrobat Exchange 3.0, and on screen
the callout lines are surrounded w/weird white rectangles. The PDF files
print out fine (no weird white rectangles), but I'm hoping people will
be able to use these files on screen, too.
Any words of wisdom, o wise techwrlers?
