Dear Steve,

1) we have so far been unable to find a way to force Adobe Acrobat
(even the "Professional" Version), or MacOS-X 10.2, or any other tool
to preserve the file names in the "printed" pdf file. If you work on
a 3730, you can imagine that this is required to keep track of the
files (that should replace the correct paper version).

2) to save time and to profit from the capabilities of an intranet
based on pdf's, we would like to generate the pdf's automatically in
the LIMS database. This should replace printing the paper version
that users want to get. And it should give users the option to
re-print lost paper versions, decide about landscape or upright,

Best regards, Bernd

1) Please direct emails regarding GABI-Kat to: gabikat at
2) Since I travel between both locations mentioned above, it might be
difficult to reach me. In any case, it is a good idea to let it ring
until you get an answering machine.
