Topic: Confusion on Distiller versus PDF Writer
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 108012

We received the statement below from a vendor which we are trying to decipher... I understood that with Adobe Acrobat 6.0 the Distiller was no longer available. In the old days there were two ways you could create the PDF, using the Distiller and using the Acrobat PDFWriter....

Though all of your documents were in pdf format, not all were distilled with Acrobat Distiller. It is recommended that all pdf's be distilled with Acrobat Distiller for a several reasons, two of which are:

Adobe Acrobat is the uniform standard and most states do in fact require that attachments be in PDF format and distilled with Acrobat Distiller
Many states require that Print to PDF work and by ensuring that your attachments are distilled and have no security on them will allow that functionality to work.

Could someone please explain? Thanks
