I don’t think PDF is capable to reserve the layer data structure. What I just know about that feature is, it can just output the file as PDF but then they can’t be edited like PSDs.

Yes, I knew that, thanks anyway Raincutter! I don’t know why people use Acrobat for creating & editing files.

What files do people create using acrobat?

I only use acrobat (or LiveCycle) for the following:
• Creating pdf files from .doc/.docx files.
• Compiling Portfolios of .pdf files.
• Creating forms for easy distribution (most people have Acrobat Reader).

I’d be interested to see if there are any other application of acrobat. :)

Actually IBIB you can save a PSD as a PDF and still mantain editing capabilities (layers structure).

I can do this with CS3 .

I’ve tried exporting a layered .psd file into a .pdf and maintaining the layers structure. But when I opened it with Acrobat Pro I couldn’t edit a single thing.

One of my future clients ( I hope ) contacted me with this problem – he wants to edit a Photoshop designed flyer but with Acrobat Pro – because its much easier ( in his opinion ) – So imma be creating a PSD file and apply the text & photos in Acrobat Pro. I hope we just settle on a payment before I start working and it will worth the extra time spent.

Does LiveCycle come with Acrobat (I’ve had it for so long I cannot remember)?

If it does then use that to edit the .pdf document? :)
