Default Dump Acrobat 6!

I got a job back from the printers today: damn keyline round two sides of an image box <grrr!>. My PDF, I'll have you know, (most embarrassing), so I opened it in Acrobat 5: looked good, no keyline. Zoomed right in: still no keyline. Scratched head, odd... Looked at it in 7 on a Mac, still no keyline. Tried 6: keyline there, large as life, bloody well winking at me, too! Checked with repro: sure enough, they plated this job from 6. Did they notice the lines? Did they heck!

I hate Aggroprat 6! That's the third problem I've had with it this year. I've twice before seen mis-shaped letters from a PDF made from (get this, folks) a Frustrator document with all text converted to outlines! Letters i and l come out dashed. But only when opened in Ache RoSplat 6 - not 4, not 5, and not 7: JUST BLOODY 6, AND I HATE IT!

Ah, that's better. Thanks for your kind patience while I was ranting - I've calmed down now, and the printers will replate. FROM 7!
