While I don't see us ever producing an "Acrobat for Print Production" (even if I personally think it's a good idea!) - we are indeed finding that we need to provide more tools to enable users to customize the environment (ala workspaces and such in CS).  Don't know what will be the end result - but it's certainly an ongoing discussion...

Again, Adobe should consider a version of Acrobat for the printing industry and throw out the fluff that we don't want. Heck, I would pay extra to get less sometimes.

Amen brother!

Is this because "print is dead"? Just wondering.

I don't have Acrobat 9 yet but during a presentation that I attended at drupa, I got the impression that the PDF Portfolio function could be a nice replacement for the ZIP files that now go back and forth between companies. Has anyone already had a go at this?

I've seen it in there but haven't used it as I don't send out PDF's. I wonder though if people need the full blown Acrobat to view them?

I don't see how it is of use for us. All it does it let you add non-PDF content to a PDF such as flash movies. I email PDF soft proofs now, and can't see how this would be any better.

Do you only mail a single PDF at a time?  If so - then you are correct, it doesn't help you.

However, if you are sending around multiple documents to a single customer (be they PDF or not), then a Portfolio makes a much better solution than Zip, StuffIt, etc.

I combine several files at a time and send them. Next time, I'm going to try out your portfolio. I can't wait, it's gonna blow some minds. Half the people I deal with can't even figure out if there is more than one page to a pdf. I get calls all the time asking where the rest of it is. Me: "you see that little blue arrow? click it". Them: "....oh"

Wow I just got my first portfolio PDF from a client that sent in one file that had 5 different PDF files of correct pages for a book.  Pretty cool stuff and a lot easier than having to open each up and toggle between them to check specs or worse trying to look at 5 tiled files at once.  Nice feature.
