PDF Reader for Mac 8.1?
on Apr 28, 2005 at 5:53:50 pm

Dear Folks,

Sorry to post without an intro, but the boss is breathing down my neck ....

I am on XP and Photoshop 7. I am trying to get a PDF to a guy on Mac.8.1 with Adobe Reader v 3.01. He can receive the file, but can't see the text (embedded and he has all fonts).

Is there a newer version of Reader around that will work on 8.1 (can't find on Adobe site). OR - any ideas on how to make this work?

A HUGE muchas gracias from New Mexico.

Open the PDF in Photoshop and rasterize it. Save either as a Photoshop PDF or a TIFF file with LZW compression.

8.1? Hmm... that's pretty old for a Mac system.

Either way, he should be able to read it then. I don't remember what the 'latest' version of Reader was that worked on system 8.

However, know that if it needs to be a quality pdf file, then better settings will have to be used.

If you're on XP, try embedding postscript fonts instead of TrueType. Mac didn't play well with TrueType fonts until sys 9.2. terms of fairly stable. That might be his problem.
