Marlo the cat

Postby Fortune Clutterbuck » Wed Jan 25, 2012 1:05 pm

I have just put the first part of my children's book on line - please take a gander http://www.marlothecat.co.uk/Marlo.pdf

I am sending out to agents and publishers at the end of the month so any advice would be welcome

I liked it and I liked the cat, hope he gets everything he wants without having to do anything

Yeh, I think that's the problem. We upgraded to CS3 and from what I have trawled the internet about it, its a common problem and all the solutions I've found don't work. If I already have the pdf, open adobe reader first and then the doc - then its fine. But as the Marlo story is opened in the browser first it just shuts itself down.

Can you recommend any other pdf readers that I could download and then set as my default? Is Primopdf any good? :think:

Sorry to hear about that Spidergirl - technology is brilliant right up to the moment it isn't - if you want to see the characters outside of the book you can find them at www.marlothecat.co.uk

To Mongo, Tiffany and Tony - many thanks for your kind and encouraging comments :D

The cracker jokes are awful - which is just as it should be. :lol:

It is yes and I've got that, but Adobe CS3 does something funny with it I'm convinced! They've introduced a new sandbox security type thing but I don't think my puter likes it :lol:

Thanks Fortune, I'll check it out :D

I really like it, cats make for such excellent characters. I hope you find an agent soon.
