My Adobe Reader at work is in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish.

I need to print a whole bunch of PDFs with really special settings today. How do I go into Reader and switch the settings from "Imprimir" to "Print" so I can go into Preferences and make all of the special settings to collate and staple, etc? I want to just make the Reader program all in English. Do I need to reinstall or is it just an option? How would I find the option since it's all in Spanish? Thanks.

Why Isn't This Easier?

Can anyone recommend a plug-in that allows adobe acrobat to sort pages by page number? I inserted page numbers into a document; extracted certain pages into separate files, and then combined them again; the page numbers were off as a result (and there are some dupes). I'd like to make them resort by page number. Any ideas?

Can Acrobat Reader 5.0 and Acrobat Pro 7.0 play nice?

Acrobat Reader 5.0 and Acrobat Pro 7.0: can they both work at once? I just installed Acrobat Pro 7.0 on Windows XP, and now it's the default for viewing PDFs. Not only that, but even when I try to open AcroRd32.exe in the Acrobat 5.0 folder, it instead opens up Acrobat.exe from the 7.0 install. I need 7.0 for professional use, but 5.0 is so much faster for all of my other PDF-viewing needs. Is there any way that I can keep using 5.0 while 7.0 is installed? [more inside]

Acrobat upgrade kills Firefox as we know it

Firefox and (surprise!) Acrobat Reader problems. Upgraded Acrobat Reader via its internal upgrade routine (while in Firefox). The upgrade crashed halfway through. Now neither Firefox nor Adobe Download Manager seem to have DNS capability. Also, neither program can be removed from memory—using End Process in the Windows Task Manager does nothing. What gives?

Cause of corrupt PDF's?

HELP! Suddenly, every PDF I download from various databases is corrupt in some way. Either there is "insufficient data for an image" or "unable to extract font X", this has never happened to me before. I have no problem grabbing PDFs from other sites, so I don't know if the corruption is caused by dropped packets going through the library proxy server, evil gremlins, or my recent installation of Reader 6 alongside Acrobat Pro 5
