Adobe Acrobat 4.0 Mac (FULL RETAIL)

Within the past two years, the Adobe Acrobat suite of programs and their Portable Document Format (PDF) have become the de facto standard for cross-platform, electronic document management and distribution. Much of this widespread popularity can be attributed to the Internet and the overall ease in which PDF files can be uploaded, linked to, and viewed virtually anywhere regardless of system. Capitalizing on this success, Adobe Acrobat 4.0 brings a solid update to an already solid standard.

Adobe Acrobat is actually a suite of programs and utilities. Acrobat (formerly Acrobat Exchange) is used to create, edit, modify, and merge PDF files. Acrobat Distiller converts postscript files to PDF, while the PDF Writer printer icon converts most other types of files to PDF. Acrobat Catalog is an indispensable utility for generating full-text, searchable indexes of multiple PDF files. Acrobat Reader and the PDF Viewer web browser plug-in are read-only, freeware components, and can be used to view PDF files online or off.

Several handy features have been added to Acrobat, including small thumbnails, highlighting, annotations, context-specific optimization, and batch processing for multiple documents. One utterly minor yet much appreciated feature is the new, "front forward" bookmark system. Previously, when working with a combination of long bookmarks and small screen real estate, much of the bookmarks text would be hidden behind the document pane. Now, when rolling the cursor over each bookmark, the partially hidden text brings itself forward -- complete with a different background color to make the text even more easy to read. The small thumbnails are also a nice touch, particularly when navigating through long documents, or when working on a small screen.

Adobe has revamped Acrobat's interface by adding several new buttons to the tool bar and then splitting it up so one half occupies the left vertical while the other fills the top horizontal. One questionable interface change in Acrobat 4.0 is the new "Show/Hide Navigation Pane" button in place of the three previous buttons for bookmarks, thumbnails, and document-only views. When clicking the Show/Hide button, a tabbed pane appears on the left-hand side with options for the three previously mentioned views. This change isn't really bad, and is actually pretty intuitive once you get used to it, but Adobe has opted to place all the menu commands for each of these views in a tiny window accessed by an even tinier triangle next to each tab. Since many of these commands like "Create All ThumbNails" and "Add Bookmark" were previously accessible via obvious pull-down menus, relocating them to this obscure little triangle can be quite confusing for any seasoned Acrobat user. Fortunately, keyboard commands for these commonly-accessed tasks still work.

For Mac (Power Macintosh: OS 9 or Below) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
