    Thanks satrow. Odd that it is, when I follow the link to support.microsoft.com/kb/3035583, I do not see anything like this. I asked the tech at the Microsoft store about the support link. I asked him...

    Been using Acrobat since 3.

    I use Acrobat features like Comments, page inserts, page numbering, and the Accessibility Check.
