I'm using Reader 9 for Mac, and my editor is sending me pdfs that she has given me permission to edit using the comment feature. I have found that when those pdf are version 1.6 I can edit them, but when they are version 1.3 or 1.4 I cannot. Additionally, those pdfs version 1.3 are create by QuarkExpress (not sure what that is) and those that are 1.6 are created by Acrobat Distiller 7.0 fo Mac. Colleagues who use a PC have no problem editing those same pdfs, regardless of version.
Has anyone encountered this problem and /or know of a way to address it?
Your help would be much appreciated.
The ability to enable commenting didn't come out until version 7 so I would imagine that is why they don't work on those PDF's.
Other people may be able to comment because they "may" be using Acrobat and not Reader.
