Topic: Acrobat 6 Pro bug?
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 98980
From: sufan

Received a PDF in which a text file (PDF Producer: Acrobat Distiller 5
Windows v1.4) had been combined with a cover file (PDF Producer:
Acrobat 5 Distiller 5.00 for Macintosh v1.3). There were three
instances of the font Futura-Heavy (embedded and subsetted), all
instances had been assigned individual names to avoid conflicts.

I opened the combined document in Acrobat 6 Pro and did a "Save
as" to rename the document. The three instances of Futura-Heavy
were assigned the same name. Obviously this caused font
problems.

I did not have this problem with Acrobat 5 or when the file was re-
PostScripted out of Acrobat 6 Pro and distilled. The problem did not
occur when the cover and text were individually optimized (PDF
Optimizer) out of Acrobat 6 Pro, then combined and saved with a
"Save As". However, using optimize on the originally supplied
combined file again caused all instances of Futura-Heavy to be
saved with the same name.

Why would "Save As" out of Acrobat 6 Pro cause instances of
Futura-Heavy (or any font, for that matter) to be renamed
incorrectly? Is this a known issue?

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.
