Oh yes. One more thing. There's an option in newer versions of  
Acrobat (Reader only?) for it to remember the previous location /  
page / view when re-opening a .pdf --- not sure where it is though,  
but it's one of the features added to make it work more like the  
``Glassbook'' app which Adobe bought and changed into the ``Adobe  
eBook Reader''.
