Hi all,

While on the subject of PDFs (Portable Document Files), is there a way to
view a Postscript file, prepared to be sent to the printers, in a way so
that it is not flipped horizontal and inverted?

I distilled such a PostScript file in Acrobat distiller, to make the PDF,
then I opened it in Reader, but of course it looks like a negative.  The
only way I've found to check everything out is to choose Page-setup (Adobe
PS Printer), choose flip horz. and invert, and print it out on my laser

By the way, we had a traumatic week in the mountains of Costa Rica; here in
Monteverde we were far enough north to be drenched by Mitch, and about a
week ago, landslides - some of them huge - began to happen. Fortunately, no
one was killed. Our neighbors to the north are much worse off.

Thanks for the humor Emil... we needed something to lighten up the situation.
