The AcroFleX Package Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2020-08-07

The acroflex package is part of the AeB Pro family of packages. It is a package that creates a graphing screen using the rmannot package. The user can type in functions and graph them. A graphing screen can be populated with pre-packaged functions for the user the scrutinize and interact with. The package can graph functions of a single variable x, a pair of parametric equations that are functions of t, and a polar function of t.

The graphing screen is a rich media annotation what uses a specially developed SWF file, called the AcroFLeX Graphing widget. This package takes advantage of rich media annotations, which is a version 9 feature of Acrobat. This package requires Acrobat Pro and Distiller version 9. The user needs to use Adobe Reader 9.0 in order to obtain the graphing functionality.

What's New 2020-08-07: This package becomes obsolete as of December 2020. Beginning December 2020, Adobe no longer supports Flash player (SWF, FLV). This package uses a custom SWF file (acroflex.swf); as a result this package will no longer function in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The package will continue to produce PDFs as designed, but only if built using Acrobat XI (or a version Acrobat prior to December 2020) and viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader XI (or a version of Reader prior to December 2020).

Now, I simply must get back to my retirement.
