Hello all,

I am using AdobeAcrobat Professional 7. No problems till now. However, during the last couple of days I've experienced some difficulties: there are documents that all of a sudden I cannot read because I can only see a sign salad all over. I've deinstalled Adobe and installed the free Internet version (version 8) and then it worked again but when I reinstalled the Professional Version 7 the "sign salad" appeared again in some of the documents.

Somebody experecienced something similar? Any ideas? I installed the Microsoft tool Acu Type Tuning, maybe it has something to do with this problems in Adobe but I've deactivated the tool and the sign salad is still there!

Thanks for your help

Conrado

ah! Apr 20, 2007

insalata di simboli! Sorry for the salad misinterpretation! I find it hard to believe it's the program. Maybe it's just the files. Are the same files ok if you open them in Acrobat (Reader) 8?

Can please somebody explain Apr 20, 2007

to those of us not speaking Spanish what "insalata di simboli" is?

If honestly, this thread got me lost...

Do you mean all text appearing as incomprehensible symbols in your PDF files- such as I sometimes get on converting plain English PDF to Word and all the the result is Word document in Chinese-like characters strange to me?

yes Apr 21, 2007

Hi Uldis

Yes, as you say, it means here a mix of symbols that probably follows no order or makes no sense.

Regards,

Marta
