Topic: can no longer drag files to the bookmarks tab to append ?
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 92454

I used to use drag and drop a lot in Acrobat 5 to append files web pages, pictures etc to a document, Acrobat 5 would just ask where I wanted to insert the new item. In version 6 if I try the same thing I get a new pdf created for each item i drop. I cant believe that Adobe would be stupid enough to take away such a good feature (?) so I guess theres an option somewhere ........ can anyone help.

Thanks in advance .. Barrie

If I try and use the right click option on an offline web page (i.e. just a local html file) and select "convert ..." thats fine .. BUT if I select "Combine..." i get a message saying xxxxxxxx.html is not a recognised type .. ? WTF is going on .. has it suddenly become illegal to combine 2 html files ? ...(easily)
oh and another .. :( .. when i extract a jpeg that was added (originally a jpeg) the extracted jpg filesize differs from the original.. Im pretty sure when I tried this in Acrobat 5 the extracted file was the same size (and so the same file presumably)

Just having a moan .. I'll stop now ;)

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
