Is this an acceptable newsgroup for an Adobe Reader 9 question? If not, can you recommend one? I dl'd the "Installation manual", which is halfway down the first page, from http://www.channelplus.com/product_detail.php?productId=225 A) I can view it, but when I try to Find anything with Adobe Reader 9.3.0, I always get zero hits. Even if I already know it's there. Also, if I try to use the cursor to select text, I usually can't select anything, even after I used Customize to add the Select Tool Cursor to the Select and Zoom Toolbar, (and it appears there and I put my cursor there and click on it.) If I use Cntl-A, which it says is Select All, it only highlights the page number, or the company name and address, never any text. Are A and B caused by AR or because the file is wierd? Why would they cause a file to be like this? C) Also they have a function called Read out loud, it just says two, three, four, five, six... to the end and then it reads the entire Limited Warranty Statement. That it reads pretty clearly, sort of! (It prounces LLC as "lousy". I guess its failure to read the text is for the same reason it won't highlight the text. Adobe's web-based Help is so short it's ridiculous. D) Are they on a campaign to make AR worse, so people will buy Adobe Acrobat? It seems the functions I have used for 14+ years are harder and harder to find or to use. Is it worth my finding my old downloads and reinstalling a prior version? I know there are alternatives, even free ones, but I'd like this to work too.
