Distiller uses Finder creator/type "ORAC"/" FDP" - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

Distiller 8/9 running on Intel based mac running OSX 10.4.11/10.5.5. It seems that Distiller creates pdf-files with creator/type "ORAC"/" FDP". That causes some systems not to recognice them as pdfs. I hope Adobe will fix Distiller soon so that it would use file type "PDF " instead of current " FDP"....

    Wow, that's a pretty bone-headed thing to do. If Adobe's not going to use higher-level frameworks that handle the endian issue for them, they'll need to take care of the byte-swapping themselves.

    (In case you're not familiar with the term "endian", it has to do with the way multi-byte values are stored in memory. Intel Macs store those values in memory in the opposite order than PowerPC Macs do. Notice 'ORAC' is 'CARO' backwards, and ' FDP' is 'PDF ' backwards).
