Overview of this book

Adobe Acrobat can help you solve a wide variety of problems that crop up when you work with PDF documents on a daily basis. The most common file type for business and communication, this compact portable document format is widely used to collect as well as present information, as well as being equipped with many lesser-known features that can keep your content secure while making it easy to share. From archive features that will keep your documents available for years to come to features related to accessibility, organizing, annotating, editing, and whatever else you use PDFs for, Acrobat has the answer if you know where to look. Designed for professionals who likely already use Adobe Acrobat Pro, this guide introduces many ideas, features, and online services, sorted and organized for you to easily find the topics relevant to your work and requirements. You can jump to any chapter without sifting through prior pages to explore the tools and functions explained through step-by-step instructions and examples. The information in some chapters may build on existing knowledge, but you are not expected to have an advanced level of prior experience. By the end of this book, you’ll have gained a solid understanding of the many capabilities of PDFs and how Acrobat makes it possible to work in a way that you will never miss good old ink and paper.

Using Acrobat in a Document Review Process

You will now be introduced to possibilities consistent with the reality that the use of paper and ink in a business office should be in decline thanks to sufficient tools to convey information digitally. This includes editorial markup during the publishing workflow. Instead of a multitude of copies being printed on paper for each version review, Acrobat allows you to use specific commenting/markup tools and a document comparison feature to communicate needed edits.

Editors do not make changes to the .pdf file using Acrobat, but communicate ideas, provide feedback, or suggest changes to content created and edited in the authoring application.

We will take a close look at the commenting tools and types of reviews possible based on Adobe Document Cloud. In Chapter 10, Integration with Adobe InDesign, we will also explore Creative Cloud-based direct collaboration and review process options for graphic designers working with InDesign.
