    1. Each edition of the User's Guide is given the same file name, so we
    have no way of knowing when the document has been updated. FYI, there
    was an update on 16 June 2006. The changes mostly reflect the added DVD
    support, but there's lots of itty bitty changes throughout.

    Acronis needs to provide a list that we can check to learn of documentation updates.

    2. Acronis continues to output the document in PDF 1.5 format (version
    6). Not everyone can install the Acrobat 6, or later, Reader. Distiller
    allows one to choose the version of Acrobat in which to save the
    document. The document should be saved in the oldest PDF level that
    supports the features used to allow the most users to be able to
    print/display the User's Guide.

    Hi, Howard Kaikow

    I never use Acrobat Bloat Reader, I use FOXIT Reader, and by using the zipped version there is no install, to be able use it simply download and save, unzip it and save the unzipped file somewhere [i.e. My Documents] and then open it.

    It is 2.64MB unzipped.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    I’m in full agreement with Howard – it should be a simple matter for Acronis to put the revision number alongside the download manual. That way one would know if the file had already been downloaded, or was in fact a new revision.

    Maybe.

    But for those of us having the full Acrobat 5 product, there can be problems trying to install a later version of Acrobat Reader.

    With a 3rd party reader, problem might be just as bad, even worse.

    The correct solution is to create the PDF in the lowest level format possible.

    Hi, Howard Kaikow

    It is a choice, also to me it is not a 3rd party reader but 1st.

    Unless you meant that to be tongue-in-cheek in order to tease Howard (which wouldn't bother me since Howard deserves some teasing:D), I must agree with Howard that somebody providing a product such as Acronis does, assuming they aim to please ALL of their current and prospective customers, should provide the product and support materials in a medium that serves the lowest common denominator. It just seems like common sense to me.

    Hi, crofttk

    No one is making any one use Acrobat Reader as their Reader, I pointed to an alternative Free Reader, and DH blows it off with:-
    DH needs a life.

    As these same suggestions were posted earlier this AM and merged into the Acronis True Image WISH-LIST thread....we'll close this thread and let your previous suggestions for Acronis to review suffice.

    This thread is now closed.
