I'm merrily batch-plotting PDF's with Autocad 2010, and they look beautiful in Acrobat Reader 9. But when I try to open them with Adobe Acrobat Standard 6 (so I can re-order the sheets, add a watermark, etc etc), Acrobat claims that the file is a new version that it can't read. It does end up opening the PDF, but it only shows the hatching - all the regular lines are gone.
Does anyone know how to make Autocad 2010 plot legacy version PDF's so I can manipulate them with Acrobat Standard 6?

I know, when I went from board drafting to this CAD computer stuff and
bought a computer they never told me I need to buy a monitor, key board or
mouse to go with it. Then if I wanted it on paper one of those big printers
The T-square and triangles where a lot cheaper and if I wanted to I could
take then home with me at night and work on the kitchen table with out
having to pay extra for another home version.
Download the PDFill freepdf writer, I just downloaded it the other day to evaluate it as a replacement for our Acroplot licenses. The only part of Acroplot we ever use is the printer driver and PDFill is an excellent free replacement, and it saves to earlier versions so you can open your file in Acrobat 6.
