Thanks for the feedback. Right now I'm not very concerned
about the size or placement of the tiles, zooming or panning,
etc. I will be concerned with such features later, but
now my largest concern is whether it is possible to fiddle
with the Acrobat document model and get Acrobat to present
the tiles. I've seen the "Open in Window" and related samples.
This may very well be how I end up doing it (i.e. have Acrobat
image each PDF to an external window and stitch the
windows/bitmaps together), but then it would be outside of the
Acrobat window and I'd also have to do some more work to handle
pan, zoom, .... It seems straightforward to do it this way,
but I thought I'd first take a shot at trying to do it, at
least apparently so to the user, wholly within Acrobat's own
presentation. The idea is to have the user either open one
"master" PDF, and/or invoke a plug-in, and then have a plug-in
databased/downloaded PDFs into an apparently single PDF
document (or page). Should I spend much more time chasing
this approach or should I resort to the "Open in Window"
approach? Also, in exploring my options, which approaches
might work with just Reader (instead of full Acrobat)?
