For better or worse, if you simply mailed in the report to Adobe,
don't expect a personal if any response. That mechanism is not
Adobe Tech Support.

For future reference, regardless of what program you publish with
copy-and-paste is about the worst way to set yourself up for disaster
in case your document get lost or mangled.
