    The main thing that Acrobat has over Preview is its forms capabilities. Yes, Preview in Leopard supports basic forms but some government forms you fill in within Acrobat and then electronically submit while within Acrobat. Quite neat actually.

    I still think Apple needs to direct Filemaker to pursue a Forms strategy of its own.



    Imagine having a Filemaker layout generate a PDF form that can be filled out in Preview/Acrobat, then emailed back. Then it is dragged into and automatically added to the database. No typing required. That would be cool.

    What secrets are we talking about?



    The ones that are in the publicly available beta downloads of these programs? Or from what was said in the publicly available info from the CS4 Summit?

    Please tell me if I am mistaken, but I think this is the first time that you can use the Mac version of Acrobat to create the forms. This function was only allowed on the PC version before.

    The ability to create forms on a Mac has been around for ages.

    I don't find any reason why Adobe has to issue a seperate version for Acrobat Macintosh users. Adobe Acrobat Reader is really leading the competition of the Best pdf readers by offering a long list of services with a rich user interface, which improves in every new version. But, the launching time of Acrobat reader could be considered as one of its major down-side.

    This will make searching for academic or business related PDF's far more powerful. At Microstat we use OCR in document scanning, converting from physical paper form to PDF. We find OCR to be highly sophisticated technology. We can even use OCR to covert technical manuals to a digital format and store it on our Document Management Software, reducing storage and search costs. Bieng able to interact with these Documents on an I Pad is a welcome advancement. <a href="http://www.microstat.co.uk">Document Scanning Services</a>
