6. Adobe Acrobat...
- When installing Adobe Acrobat 5.0, to load the PDFWriter you must
choose the "custom" installation. (This procedure is different from
the installations of Adobe 3.0 and 4.0, which included PDFWriter
in the default installation.)
- To ensure that the formatting and appearance of the document remain
the same when viewed through the word processor and when viewed or
printed through the PDF reader, the printer (File/Print menu) must
be set to "Acrobat PDFWriter" before beginning to compose or edit
the document. If a document is initially prepared with some other
printer specified, the ultimate conversion to PDF is very likely
to introduce changes in pagination, fonts, spacing, or other
formatting elements, requiring further proofreading and further
editing. Once the document is saved as a PDF file, always print
from the PDF reader (rather than from the word processor) to be
sure that the printed copy matches the court's official copy. If
Acrobat PDFWriter is set as the default printer, no other steps
should be needed. If some other printer is set as the default,
Acrobat PDFWriter must be selected as the current printer
immediately after opening the word processing application (or
immediately after choosing to create a new document). In
WordPerfect each time the document is opened for editing before
the final version is ready for filing, the printer should be set
again to Acrobat PDFWriter. In Word, Acrobat PDFWriter is retained
as the printer until the Word application is closed; if just the
document has been closed and then reopened, the printer will still
be set to Acrobat PDFWriter.
