Topic: Backwards compatability
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 104222

I have been working with Acrobat 6 Pro for a few weeks now and have an ongoing problem that I have not been able to solve.

If I open a PDF in Acrobat 6 and add a note to it, then someone working in Acrobat 5 looses the "Save" and "Save As" function unless they make a change (this last bit is the confusing part).

This is a pain if the person working in Acrobat 5 wants to open review the file without making changes and save it in a different location.

Does anyone know if Acrobat 6 is adding some data to the file that requires a further change before it will allow the user to save or save as the file.

Thanks for your help.
