Last night, around mid-night, as I was about to shut-down an ‘Adobe Updater’ icon popped up in my Task Bar tray … and notified me that Acrobat had an update.
So went through the process. It demands a restart. Worked OK. No glitches. Just to make sure all was well I opened a recently created PDF with 9.3. Opened fine.
This morning I re-created a PDF using 9.3. No problems, yet. But, the PROMPT screen to ask me where I want the new PDF still appears BEHIND the Word document. (Yes, the Task Bar icon flashes to tell you that something needs to be done.) I had hoped that Adobe would have fixed that in 9.3.
Since starting this post … given that I have to multitask … I have created a couple more PDFs, all trivial, using 9.3. No problems, BUT these were one page documents [think, invoices << smile >>].
This update to 9.3 has been NICELY integrated with Windows 7. Windows 7 Action Center has it noted as a change to the system. It even appears in the Windows 7 Update History. This is good. This is impressive. In contrast none of the updates to iolo System Mechanic 9.5 are reflected in the Action Center or Windows 7 Update History.
So, so far so good. But I don’t trust Adobe. As I am about to die, Adobe will be the last thing that will flash before my eyes. I will remember that all the problems I have had with Adobe, over the years, would have taken at least five years of my life.
Thanks & Cheers. Good luck.
