If you do not already own the full version of Acrobat, then the only way you can create PDF files is with Distiller, which ships with Pagemaker, and which only makes PDFs from PostScript files. So the options are limited without paying for the full Acrobat package. Acrobat is worth owning on its own merits, but if your purpose is to RIP files to an Epson, wouldn't it make sense to buy the right tool for the job? Adobe's PS RIP (PressReady) will cost less than the full Acrobat package, and do a better job of printing files to your Epson, if you have a model that it supports. Why buy a wrench for more when you really need a hammer and it costs less? C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Please: Stay on topic.
