The free Acumen Journal presents two monthly articles, one
-- "The Acrobat User" -- featuring advanced uses of
Adobe Acrobat, and the second -- "PostScript Tech" --
covering some aspect of PostScript programming.
The current issue of John Deubert's free monthly
newsletter features articles on "Exporting Form Data to a Spreadsheet in Acrobat 7" for Acrobat users and "A Bulletproof Minimum Linewidth" for PostScript techies.
For January 2005, the technical features by John Deubert of
Acumen Training are:
The Acrobat User: "Exporting Form Data to a Spreadsheet in Acrobat 7"
Acrobat 7 lets you convert a set of FDF form data files into a single, comma-delimited file that may be imported into your favorite spreadsheet. This is a great aid for those who don't have server-side processing software.
PostScript Tech: "A Bulletproof Minimum Linewidth"
People who work with driver output may need to impose a minimum linewidth so that hairlines don't disappear. This is relatively easy to do with a redefinition of setlinewidth, but making it work regardless of the current state of User Space is a little tricky; we shall use the rarely-seen dtransform operator.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
