Free Acumen Journal newsletter on Adobe Acrobat, PDF and PostScript for June 2004
Includes schedules for upcoming Acrobat and PostScript training classes led by John Deubert

7 June 2004

The free Acumen Journal presents two monthly articles, one -- "The Acrobat User" -- featuring advanced uses of Adobe Acrobat, and the second -- "PostScript Tech" -- covering some aspect of PostScript programming.

For June, the technical features by John Deubert of Acumen Training are:

Acumen Journal June 2004 Acrobat PDF

1. The Acrobat User: "Acrobat 6 Layers and Forms"
-- Acrobat 6 has added support for Layers in PDF files. This allows the easy, wholesale hiding and revealing of buttons and other features on a PDF page. This month Deubert shows how to manipulate these layers in an Acrobat form.

2. PostScript Tech: "Binary Tokens"
-- A PostScript program usually consists of a stream of ASCII characters. However, PostScript also has a little-known binary version in which numbers and names are represented as a stream of binary values. This can greatly reduce PostScript file size.

The free Acumen Journal for June 2004 [PDF: 713kb] can be downloaded from Planet PDF, as well as from the Acumen Training Web site.

The issue also includes the schedules and dates for Acumen's forthcoming Acrobat, PostScript and other related classes; he recently launched a new, four-day "PDF File Content and Structure" course.
