    I can't answer about the drop down menus, because I've run across a use for such and haven't explored the possibilities.

     

    The is no extended version on the Mac Platform. There is on PC Side. Bigest thing it contibutes is XML based forms plus other touches.

     

    when you go to adobe.com web site click on Acrobat and at some point there is a chart teling you what features are in each version.

    Of course you can do it in Pro. Use the Combo box tool from the Forms menu.

    Depends on what you want to do with it.

    If you just want it to have certain values, then no.

    If you want it to interact with other fields, then yes.

    Did you find this tool? It's under Tools, Forms, Combo box tool.

    After you select it and draw your combo box you can enter the values under

    the Options tab manually.

    Make sure Sort Items is not checked and then you can sort them manually with

    the Up and Down buttons.
