We are looking to convert a Quark document(Mac, version 4) to pdf for viewing on a Palm/PDA and have had no prior experience doing this. From what Adobe has told us, we CANNOT optimize the file for viewing on a Palm in Acrobat for Mac. This feature IS available in the PC version. Does anyone know of a way to optimize this Mac file?
Also, we have transferred a pdf to our new Palm Tungsten E but were disappointed with the results. Our original Quark document size is a 48 page document that is 3.5 inches wide x 6.25 inches tall so it is really not much bigger than the display of the Palm. We are thinking it "should" be a very workable size for the Palm display. Of course, when we used Acrobat Reader for Palm OS to transfer the file we were told that it was NOT a "tagged pdf" (not sure what that means) and that it would make some educated guesses as to the best way to present the content. Also, when we viewed the document on the Palm, some of the text appeared as "images" that resembled the original document(and was the look we wanted) and some text appeared simply as text in a standard looking font(which did not really look like the original document.) We're not sure why that happened.
Any help or advise anyone could give us would be GREATLY appreciated.
