Free Acumen Journal Newsletter for January 2005

January 11, 2005


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.

The free Acumen Journal for January 2005 [PDF: 532kb] can be downloaded from Planet PDF, as well as from the Acumen Training Web site.

The issue also includes the schedules and dates for Acumen's Acrobat, PostScript and other related classes.
