i'm just an end user of open source and commercial products.  i have no
commercial interest in nitro pdf.  i just know that adobe acrobat (with the
exception of v.5) will open pdf forms from scribus and since nitro pdf is
less expensive than acrobat (and less bloated also) i have a tool that does
what i need with the exception of opening scribus produced files.

i have filed a pre-release bug with the nitro team along with the sla and
pdf files from scribus.  i will pass this idea of yours along to the nitro
team and see what happens.

this is true.  does the adobe acrobat team work in conjunction with the
scribus team?  this bit of information would be helpful to know if they do
when i approach the folks on the nitro beta team about working with the
scribus team.
