Re: Guesswork - Chris? -> Acrobat


That's what MS wants you to think, I-Jim.
But not everything can be written in Word anyway.  If the item includes
graphics, Word is a hassle to work with.  If you're going to create
materials in MS, better to use Publisher.  But not all MS suites include
Publisher and a Publisher file doesn't open in anything else that I know of.

and Jim-F, you're right, I'd get nowhere with an Appleworks document.  There
is conversion software out there, but I don't have enough need to warrant
investing in it.

Acrobat may be a hassle at times, but it is worthwhile.
