Latest PDF Standards

Karl De Abrew

Years ago (and years!) when we used to talk about PDF as being the most prominent document format, we'd always have to add a quick, under-the-breath, "de-facto standard". But when it came to being 100 percent assured that it would be around in years to come, it's always been a case of biting our collective lips and hoping for the best. What we would do if Adobe pulled the plug? Over the past two years, though, it's been nothing but standards, standards, standards when it comes to PDF. In fact, there are so many that it's easy to lose track. In this feature article, Planet PDF Editor Karl De Abrew helps to de-mystify the ever-increasing range of PDF-based standards.

The Trouble with Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Office 2007

Richard Crocker

The interesting if not troubling thing I've found after using the Microsoft Office 2007 beta is that Adobe Acrobat's PDF creation tools are now well and truly hidden away and hard to find. This creates multiple problems for Adobe: less people will successfully create PDFs, and more people will be asking, "Where did my 'Create PDF' button go?" Adobe needs to develop a solution for previous versions of Acrobat before the new Microsoft Office is launched.
