Please note that the procedure for purchase of FileOpen PersonalPublisher is a two-step process. After you have purchased the product, FileOpen will send you the USR installer within 24 hours, usually sooner. This will upgrade the demo version to a registered version.
Please make sure that the email address you give when purchasing is correct.
The demo version of the software is the only one you need to download, so if you have done so already you do not need to do so again.
The encryption plug-in works only with full Adobe Acrobat 4.x, although the client plug-in will function with both Acrobat Reader and full Acrobat.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
