I don't have Indesign at this time, so, I can't answer that question. But, I did wonder if the PDF was sent via FTP, if the client couldn't make changes to the PDF then?

>  Speaking of PDF files. I  have Indesign CS2. on a Mac.  Can InDesignCS2 make PDF files that a client can revise the text in Reader?   Itried selecting various default and high quality versions, but theclient cannot make changes in their Reader programs. They do not haveaccess to Indesign, Illustrator, or PHotoshop, or any program that canread the program and thus change text. Apparently they DO receive pdffiles from others that they can alter.
