A new area for security solution integrators, “Integrator Tips and Tricks” is available in the Acrobat Developer, Security Support Center. The first document for integrators, “Acrobat Trust Manager, Internet Resource Access Control” is now posted.
I have one question I just found out that Adobe Acrobat 3D is come out only for PC. I seem to feel this is leaving the Mac user out in the cold. I have work in Adobe programs on PC and Macs and I alway find the Adobe software for the Mac’s better than that for the PC. So why wound Adobe leave us Mac users out in the cold. Also alot of the design studios work with Macs not PC.????
The CAD (Computer-aided Design) community — that is the folks that use CAD applications in Manufacturing to create 3D designs as well as the supporting industries, the core community for Acrobat 3D — is 95% on PC or UNIX systems. However, the community that may collaborate or review these 3D designs could be on any platform, including the Macintosh. Adobe has addressed the needs of the 95% – we have Acrobat 3D on Windows and a UNIX Capture Utility for users on UNIX systems.
Of course the Macintosh community is one we respect and support as is evidenced by our extensive product line. Adobe is always evaluating its business and products to ensure that we support our customers in the best possible way. If the dynamics of the manufacturing market change to one where Macs play a significant role, we would act accordingly to satisfy the needs of our customers.
(I realize this sounds like a bunch of marketing-speak, but it is true – the products we create are based heavily on responding to what the market requests)
I am currently using Adobe Professional 7.0.7 and I am wondering if there is any way that I can disable the “save” feature in my PDF file so that others can not save my file on their computer? I’ve already went through the Knowledge Base in Adobe.com and I already knew about the Security features available. Yet, even with all the security features turned on, the reader can still save my PDF file for reproduction. I am desperately trying to prevent that from happening. Any advice or good lead will be greatly appreciated.
