I need to save my PDF as version 10, but the latest version I can save it as is 7. I have Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, do I need a different program to do this?
There is no such thing as “PDF version 10.”
The most recent version of PDF is PDF 1.7 which is supported by all versions of Acrobat beginning with Acrobat 8.
What do you think you need from PDF that isn't in PDF 1.7?
I am trying to send these PDFs to someone and this is what I am being told
"Please make sure the plans are in Acrobat 10 or better
on your next submittal or I will have to turn it down."
They probably confuse the version of Acrobat with the PDF version of the file. The two are not related.
At any rate, if you use Acrobat XI (11) then you should be fine. Maybe ask them to clarify what they mean if this is something critical...
