    a quick suggestion I'll offer regarding help here, make a habit of checking your older threads. Your requests for help become two way dialogues where people trying to help may make their own inquiries & wish for you to reply in return. Keep in mind also that these conversations become permanent archives for future educational opportunities.

    As noted in you other "Adobe help" thread, if you purchased a "suite" instead of the stand alone Adobe titles you mentioned, you probably do have Acrobat. Have you checked? It's a convenient tool, worth over $500, so certainly worth looking into.

    Switch to corel draw. You won't have near the limitations. Illustrator is good for Offset Printing. Corel is Superior for Signs.

    You maximum on Corel Draw is 150 ft x 150 ft.

    That should cover most anything you should ever need.

    SOMEBODY ALWAYS HAS TO GO EXAGGERATING...

    COREL IS DEFINITELY NOT "SUPERIOR"

    ONE FEATURE ON ONE DAY MIGHT BE... ANOTHER FEATURE OF ILLUSTRATOR WILL BE IN THE NEXT MINUTE...

    I WON'T PERPETUATE ANY STUPID UN-WINNABLE WAR (FORD/CHEVY, MAC/PC, PAINT/VINYL) BY STATING THAT ILLUSTRATOR IS SUPERIOR...

    ...BUT WON'T BE LETTING IRRESPONSIBLE FALSE STATEMENTS LIKE THAT GO BY EITHER...

    AND DO US ALL A FAVOR Adtechia LLC.. IF YOU WANT TO DEFEND THIS, FIND ONE OF THE DOZEN OR MORE COPIES OF THIS TIRED OLD DEBATE & BUMP THAT, SO AS NOT TO PIRATE THIS THREAD

    Not looking to start an argument. Was stating my opinion. If you don't agree.

    That is fine. That's why there is more than one Flavor of Ice Cream.

    I got the 150' x 150' by maxing out my corel to 1800 inches x 1800 inches. 1800/12=150.

    I didn't mean to start an argument or pirate this thread. If I could find a way to remove the comments I would have by now. Just to save all the trouble.

    I would of bet my life that "limitation" would have been gone by CS5 (or 2 for that matter), I guess not. There are a few other little things that should have been in there 20 years ago.
