OK,
I really don't want to buy a typewriter for the secondaires in Adobe that we have to print out. Can we just put our replies on another sheet of apaper and attach it? I guess one idea would be to set Word so that it fits exactly in the spaces and just print out on the secondary, but thats kind of a pain in the ass when you've got many to do.

No, don't buy a typewriter!! Most public libraries have typewriters they will allow the public to use for free. You can also check out your student union at your university- mine has typewriters and computers for student use for free. If you can't find any of those, go to Kinko's where you can use one for a low fee. But definetely don't buy one!!

no no no!!!

Go PM "Jot" and ask him about sending you adobe which apparently you can use to edit those PDF files.

Also, if that doesn't work, you can go to a library/word processing place where people type stuff for you for a nominal fee. I think there should be busnisses in your town like Secretarial Services that would do it for you.

And if THAT doesn't work for you, then you write/print onto the secondary "See attached sheets" and attach your word documents to the thing. But first, send a PM to JOT.

Try WinMX, u can download Acrobat from there.

Thanks, jot. I already have it. I thought that there is another way of ding things.
How do you create PDF from sctratch. Do you have to go to Adobe website to do that?

jot

you can make it in word and then use adobe distiller to make it in to a pdf which is included in the full version of adobe acrobat if you have it

I have one that I bought a year ago for $100. I'd be happy to sell it for 50 plus s&h if anyone wants it.
