Seeking Adobe Acrobat replacement for Mac OS X. I have Acrobat 8 Standard for Windows, which has served me well. But Adobe only offers their "Pro" version for Mac, which costs way more than I want to spend ($450), and it's also more than I need. So I'm looking for an alternative; free is great, but willing to pay for a solid software package. Intuitive and easy-to-use is a big plus. List of features I tend to rely on most in the "More Inside" section. [more inside]
Why can't PDF files from Google Books downloaded via GooReader be modified in Adobe Acrobat? I need to modify the font size size so these books can be read on my Kindle. My copy of Acrobat Standard will not recognize these Google PDF files as editable. Why does Acrobat not recognize these PDF files?
The full version of Adobe Acrobat has a way to OCR scanned images, so that the image is still viewed in the PDF, but you can search for text in the document. How do you do that without Acrobat? [more inside]

I need to read a series of pdfs tonight - the trouble is, the resolution on them is messed up so as to be nearly illegible. Reading all of these will surely make my eyeballs shrivel up & fall out. With only access to Acrobat Reader, is there anything I can do to increase the readability of these pdfs - a way to change from color to b&w, increase the sharpness - anything? [more inside]

What, if any, are the advantages to Adobe Acrobat Reader over Preview for Mac OS 10.4?
Acrobat Filter. In Mac OS 9.2, I regularly create a large number of PDFs from Word files using Distiller 5.0. The problem is, I do this for 30 large files every 10 days, and must manually first create .ps files, and then distill them. The process takes more than 1 hour, during which I must open Each Word file to .ps "print" it. Short of buying a new copy of Acrobat for $300 and/or an OS X computer, is there any way to automate this process?
