I got a flyer that lets me upgrade to Acrobat 6.0
for $149. The intriging improvement is Scan....paper
documents into Adobe PDF files with one command to
create electronic archives more efficiently and they're
protected.

Anybody working with 6.0? Can I just dump a report into
a feeding scanner and produce a reasonably sized
pdf file?

I run 5.0, scans, prints great. No upgrade needed. I guess if you were someone who dealt with extreme graphics or large volume, it might be worth an upgrade. Otherwise, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.

Amazon.com has it at a pre-release price of $99 after $50 rebate. At that price, you get free shipping too.

I am thinking about it too but would have to have a real good reason to buy it while 5.05 works so well.

Why scan in a printed report? Just print to Adobe, its faster and simpler. I haven't tried it but I would suspect file size is smaller too. But I can and do scan into Adobe with 4.0 sometimes.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

I don't upgrade software unless I really need too. Meaning they it doesn't work correctly and the new versions has fixed the problem. Or they have enough new features to really make it worth it.

Toolbox allows me to save as .pdf, but I can do the same thing by changing the printer to acrobat...ditto.

I didn't see much to make me want to upgrade to version 6 from version 4. The major items in version 6 look to be (1) enhanced interactive Acrobat forms, if you wanted to set up web based appraisal form or survey that would allow you to directly capture the data. (2) One button scanning into PDFs from paper documents if you wanted to convet all your old appraisals into PDFs so you could throw out the paper.
