Hello SW List, and Stefan of course! ;-)
Thank you, Stefan, for your excellent instructions. I will try to
follow them now, to see if I can figure it out....
You see, I know that GhostWriter is free and maybe even better than
Acrobat in some ways, but that is not my purpose.
I must learn how to use Adobe Acrobat 4.0 in Windows, because I want
to make an arrangement with the Adobe company to help SignWriting. So
GhostWriter is not the focus right now...I need to learn Acrobat.
Meanwhile, I am using Acrobat 4.0 on my Macintosh daily, and it is
easy and fun! But I can only work with Macintosh files on my
Macintosh, and SignWriter is an MS-DOS program, so for me to use
Acrobat to convert a SignWriter file to .pdf, I have to use a Windows
On the Mactintosh, there is no such thing as a PRNFile - I have no
idea what that is...nor do we have anything called a "path" on the
Mac, so that is also foreign to Mac users.
So I now have Acrobat 4.0 installed on a Windows computer in my
office (which I rarely use). And I will now try your instructions,
Stefan, and get back to you!
I want to thank both Stefan and Jerry Spillman for all your excellent help -
And members of the SW List, I hope you all are doing well?
More soon -
