The mk­stm­p­dad Bun­dle: The mk­stmppro and aebdad Pack­ages Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2016/10/26

This bun­dle con­tains two re­lated pack­ages: mk­stmppro and aebdad. Th­ese use Adobe Dis­tiller as the PDF cre­ator, and Adobe Acro­bat as well.

  1. mk­stmppro: Is a sim­ple work­flow for cre­at­ing cus­tom stamps, that Acro­bat uses for com­ment­ing.
  2. aebdad: This pack­age uses stamps (cre­ated by mk­stmppro) build a Drag and Drop Match­ing (Game). The end user may drag and drop stamps onto tar­get push but­tons. If the stamp is dropped onto the wrong but­ton, an alert box ap­pears an­nounc­ing "Wrong!", and the stamp is re­turned to its orig­i­nal place; if the stamp is dropped on the cor­rect but­ton, the alert box an­nounces "Right!". This is as close to DAD (Drag and Drop) as we can get in PDF.
Users of Adobe Acrobat can, of course, enjoy DAD Matching, but more 
importantly, users of Adobe Reader XI (version 11) or later can too! One 
of the splendid features of ARXI is it enables full support for 
commenting (and for saving fill-in form fields). Previous versions of AR, 
users could view stamps and view the associated comments, but could not 
move the stamps around on the page. With version 11, you can now move 
stamps (and other comments) around; this feature was the inspiration for 
DAD Matching (the aeb_dad package). 


Now, I must get back to my re­tire­ment.

aeb_dad – A drag-and-drop match­ing game with PDF files

The pack­age is used to cre­ate a DAD (Drag and Drop) Match­ing Game that uses stamps and push but­tons. DAD Match­ing works in any ver­sion of Acro­bat, and in Adobe Reader XI; it can use the stamps cre­ated by the mk­stmp_pro.
