(6) Methods to easily attach documents (7) document assembly methods, methods used immediately following PDF creation. (8) Methods for linking to attachments and launching attachments (9) Support for creating PDF Packages. (10) Initializing fields using unicode. (11) Basic support for layers, rollovers and animations. (12) In this version (v2.1 or later), the package is opened up to non-Distiller workflows. Use the dvips/Distiller workflow to obtain all features, (1)–(11) below, of this package. For authors that have Acrobat but prefer a non-Distiller workflow, use the useacrobat option for features (1)–(10) below. For authors who do not have Acrobat, use the nopro option to access features (1)–(3),
Extensive examples illustrate all these features.
