    Mr. Rosen,
    Thank you for this, but I do not consider it a "solution." It is simply a workaround for a program (application) deficiency that could—and should—easily be fixed.
    I have come to the conclusion—accurate or not—that Acrobat was developed on a PC for PC users who are used to mediocrity and which was then (poorly) ported to the Mac environ; unlike InDesign, which was obviously developed on a Mac for Mac users, who although admittedly can be somewhat disdainful of PCs and therefore may appear "snobbish," are used to excellence in their machines and their programs.
    Again, this is not a solution. It is a workaround, and it assumes that all Acrobat users have a license for Illustrator, as well—which should not be a REQUIREMENT for Acrobat to do what it should.
    While I realize my comments may seem abrasive to some, the truth is NOT subjective—it is simply the truth.
    I genuinely hope Adobe will move forward on this SOON. It's been over a year since first posting, and almost that since Adobe started "looking" at it. The votes are piling up. The people have spoken.
    IF this is in the works, Adobe, please let us know. Otherwise, understand that Quark was once the go-to for page layout.
