Topic: Odd omission from Acro 6 PRO CIB (Catalog)
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 110001

Just picked up a copy of Acrobat 6.0 Professional Classroom in a Book (thanks, Adobe, for delivering it 6 months + after the Standard version...) and noticed the following.

As far as we can see, there is no mention of Catalog or Indexing. Now, this could be just an oversight on the part of a late-delivering editorial team.

But, given the fact that Catalog is one of the most popular features of Acrobat (even now that people have been screwed into having to buy the dearer Professional version to be able to use it) and given the fact that Adobe love to kill off good features and promote the useless ones...

... we are asking ourselves whether this could be the precursor to the removal of Catalog functionality from version 7...

Paranoid? Of course we are! Wouldn't you be, after having been a faithful Adobe reseller for all these years!!!

p.s. spotted from the Professional 6 CIB:

"The following individuals contributed to...the Adobe InDesign (sic) Classroom in a Book:
...Proofreading: Jay Donahue"

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
