An independent graphic designer and instructor in InDesign, Photoshop and Dreamweaver after tiring of working for other people. I'm also a software tester for various companies and "Tier 0" tech support for friends, family, various associates and lots of clients...

Umm... I'm running CS5.5 and Acrobat X, so yes. By the nature of things, Acrobat 9 no longer exists here. See my addition to the answer.

comment Are there some standard sizes when it comes to square page layouts?
A great outline of where to start on this kind of project. "Ask your printer" should be engraved on every designer's monitor. (Well, not on the actual screen...)

comment Medieval gothic font with cyrillic characters
LOL! Ruminations, indeed. I'll have to work on that second stomach... As to the question, non-native English speakers sometimes phrase questions as statements in English. My wife is Italian, and used to do that a lot, so I'm kind of grooved in to the unusual phrasing.

comment Technique for finding the centerline of a curved object?
You're welcome! There's another, slightly esoteric technique I think would work in Photoshop, but I've been at Adobe MAX the last three days and haven't had a chance to check it. When I do, I'll add it to the answer.
