1) Not with Reader. You need Acrobat for that.
2) Adobe does not recommend having multiple versions of Reader on the same machine. You can try to associate the files with Reader 9 by Shift+Right-click a PDF, selecting Open With, then select the Reader 9 executable and tick the box to always use this application for that file type. I can't guarantee it will stick, though.
Is there a workaround for my first question ? i.e. use some other format etc....
Just want to get the pages for someone to view.
I would save or paste as text, but it has images I want to include.
You can use the free trial version of Acrobat to extract the pages you want.
I do have Acrobat reader 3 .... and Adobe reader 9 which I mentioned.
What are the distinctions between Adobe v Acrobat reader.
Reader is just that, a reader. It can't create or edit PDF files.
Acrobat can create files and edit them in various ways.
Gotcha,, sounds like the Acrobat reader is now called the Adobe reader....
any thought on some of the free pdf tools,like CutePDF etc.
