Why should I use Adobe's applications? Of course, I realise I don't have to if I don't want to. However, I'm a subscriber to their Creative Cloud programme, primarily for Photoshop / Indesign /Illustrator. I already use the competitors to many of the other applications in the bundle. Are there any pressing reasons for me to use the Adobe versions? Please explain to me, but please: without denigrating the applications I already use. [more inside]

But when I went to finish it today the entire Rome program seemed to be completely gone from Adobe's website. Now what? [more inside]

Also, if I were to buy a used product from eBay, what should I make sure it includes to make it a legal copy? Cheers!
Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional: I've got a document with several hundred links in it. Right now, they're all invisible; I'd like to change them all to dotted rectangles of a particular color.
