I know this is advertising, but I am sure there are a lot of us who can
benifit from this offer
I was just visiting the Adobe Acrobat site and they have a special offer
running right now. You can purchase and download a special program that
will allow any word processor to write Adobe Acrobat PDF files. If you
are like me and need to make files that any platform can read, here is a
chance to save over $200.00. Check it out at
I have purchased the program and it works great.
Now, for a limited time, you can download
not only the Adobe Acrobat Reader(R)
software but also the Adobe(R) Acrobat PDF
Writer(R). This means that in addition to being
able to view, navigate, and print any Portable
Document Format (PDF) document, you can
also create your own PDF files.
With Adobe's Portable Document Format
(PDF), you can create and share documents
across platforms while maintaining the
documents' original look and feel. That's why
you see PDF files everywhere - on the Web,
CD-ROM, and e-mail. No matter what
platforms, applications, or fonts your
documents' readers have, they can instantly
view and print your PDF document and it will
look exactly as you intended.
Acrobat PDF Writer and our macros for
Microsoft(R) Office 95 and 97 enable you to
automatically convert your Word and Excel
documents into a compact cross-platform
PDF file that you can post on the Web, put on
CD-ROM, or send via e-mail.
In addition, you can convert simple text
documents from any application to PDF just
by choosing File > Print and then selecting
Acrobat PDF Writer in your printer driver list.
If you can print, you can make a PDF
Send a PDF file anywhere, it will look exactly
Special price of US$29.95
For Windows 95 only
U.S. and Canada
Hurry, offer ends June 30, 1998!
Hope this all helps out!
