    I'm new to OSX as I just bought and received my MBP 15".

    I have a PDF file that I know has attachments in it, but when I open the PDF file with Preview the attachments do not show up, nor does it even seem possible to view them (I know they are there because I can see them using Windows Foxit PDF reader).

    Does anyone know if this is possible with Preview or will I have to get the Adobe Reader? I dread getting anything adobe because on Windows computers their software is so bloated and a resource hog.

    Oh, please! No PDF viewer is more reliable than Adobe Reader. It is also free. But you don't want to use it because of your experience with the Windows version. We all have our priorities, don't we :rolleyes:

    I think I detected sarcasm. :) Yes Windows tainted my view of their products unfortunately. I'll give it a try though and see what happens.

    I searched for other readers and it appears that Adobe is what most people use and there are not too many complaints about it.
