Topic: FreeText Comments in Acrobat 6

Hello,

Hopefully someone here can help me. I wrote a program in VB that merges together many different sources of material into one book, creates a table of contents, and page numbers each page with Freetext using the annot object and the jso object. This worked beautifully in Acrobat 5. Due to system upgrades, our users had to be upgraded to Acrobat 6. I am picking up the pieces now. I cannot for the life of me get the Freetext objects to show up in Acrobat. The text boxes are created in the document, but they are blank and the value of props.Contents doesn't seem to do anything.

Is this a known issue with Acrobat 6? Is there another way to do this?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Jonathan
