We export GIS maps to pdf files and make then available online. I've heard that the GIS layers are preserved in the pdf file. Can Reader users manipulate those layers (e.g. on/off, stacking order)? Is there anything we need to do extra in GIS? Are there settings other than resolution that need to be set during export?
Also, since I have Acrobat Pro installed on my laptop, and I don't think I want to install Reader, how do I test Reader capabilities with these map pdfs?
Probably looking for a link to some basic Reader tutorial that includes layered pdf files.
Adobe never recommended using a Reader/Acrobat combination until version X. Adobe recommends users install Reader X and Acrobat X as Reader X has enhanced protections to keep your computer safe when browsing pdfs on the net. Feel free to install both on your computer.
I'm running Acrobat CS5. I don't see a path to Acrobat X and Reader X that doesn't cost a bunch just to have a test environment.
