SignWriting List
September 19, 2000

Hello SW List, and Angus!

Thank you, Angus, for all your wonderful information.

I am truly grateful to you, for proving to us that it can work!

But I have another problem I must solve, and it has nothing to do
with any kind of shareware.

I need to know how to do this job with Acrobat 4.0 alone. Somehow
Acrobat 4.0 must have an equivalent to the PRN2File? I do not know, I
haven't had the time to get to this. But I have to figure it out,
because without that knowledge, I cannot make my proposal to Adobe.

I am writing a proposal to Adobe, to ask for a collaboration
relationship with SignWriting & Adobe...but before I do that, I want
to be able to say to them that I know how to convert a SignWriter
file to a postscript file! ;-)

So, I asked Jerry and Stefan to help me learn how to do this with
Acrobat in Windows. I purchased copies of Acrobat 4.0 for Windows for
them both. So they both have it.

Their instructions are excellent, but their instructions are
specifically for GhostWriter and/or the PRN2File, which is not what I
need to make a proposal to Adobe about...in fact it could work
against us if I mention a competitor! ;-))

And then we all got so busy with other things, that this problem
never got solved. I will try to get to it soon - Sorry to burden all
of you when you already have helped me so much!

Is it possible that Adobe also relies on shareware for the PRN2File?

Many thanks, Angus, once again!! ;-)
