 I definitely would like to have acrotex more widely used. I learned
some things studying packages in this bundle.

The problem is not only that AA is not free. It runs on Windows and
MacOSX only. Furthermore I suspect that scripts there are also only
for Windows.

I tried to persuade D.Story to create instructions for manual
acrobatics which would be possibly useful for one doing it on Mac or
Adobe online service (the latter is definitely more restricted than
Acrobat Pro; should I remind that AA9 on Windows comes in 3 flavors,
and in one on Mac?). Or for one who can go to Windows friend and do
Acrobatics there. I failed. I tried to persuade to create tds - again
the author did not want to do TeDiouS things :(

It is a real shame, the whole bundle is really impressive.

PS. I am not that sure that Adobe documents everything. F.e. flv files
and their sandbox playing.
