    A: "I use Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional to create interactive forms that can be deployed to members of my company's sales force, opened in Adobe Reader, filled in, and printed out or saved by printing to a PDF virtual printer such as Adobe PDF Printer or Zeon DocuCom Printer.

    I also use Acrobat 7.0 Professional to create promotional pieces which can be distributed to members of the sales force or clients for viewing using Adobe Reader. My documents are created in Illustrator CS or WordPerfect (depending on their complexity of design) and saved as PDFs for universal distribution."
