    I've been looking at the adobe site for a while trying to get a trial download of acrobat 8 for mac and all they have is the windows version?!?!

    All I can find are updates for the mac version, but not the full version...

    Can anyone point me n the right direction?

    TIA

    The full version is out there for sale, but I have not looked for (or seen) a trial download of it.

    For at least the last four versions of Acrobat Pro, there has not been a trial version for Mac download.

    Why? I'm guessing that the accompanying installation of Distiller and the latest Adobe PDF PPD would make it a tempting target to crack for all those studios out there who could get by just with those items alone.

    Hunting for a trial Mac download is a fruitless task.
