Discrepancy between Digital remastered and Print edition.

I was working on charcter creation and I notice that there was a discrepancy in the Racial Ability Score Adjustment table in both the AD an Zeb. 

In the print editions the Dralasite get a -5 to Dex/RS and the Vrusk get a +5 to the same. I the digital remastered thoes modifiers are applied to the Int/Log colum and Dex/RS is at +0.

Is this a correction or an error? Or is it a house rule that got incorporated in to the digital remaster?

I've notice thr erata for the Osakar and the Humma in the Per/Ldr colum. Thats good.

It's definitely not a correction as Dralasites are supposed to have a lower DEX/RS and Vrusk are supposed to have a that stat boosted.  It's probably a typo in the remastered ones.  Looks like Bill accidently shifted the DEX/RS modifiers over to INT/LOG for Dralasites and Vrusk when creating the document.  Although since he carried it through to the Zeb's Guide version from the AD version he either made the typo twice without checking or it is a house rule he incorporated into the remastered version which is entirely possible as the documents were originally created just for him and his play group and he later shared them generally.  I've always played with the originals so I've never really looked that closely at the remastered ones, good catch.

Does Bill still have the original remastered source files so we could make a corrected pdf?

No.  He lost all the originals in a hard drive crash years ago.  That said, because the file is relatively simple, I might be able to reconstruct a word document from the PDF with Acrobat Pro.

I also have Acrobat Pro. I'm going to try making the change on the AD printer friendly file.

I've changed my copy of the AD printer friendly file will work on the other files.
