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.

They could use a stamp tool to convey visually that the publication is, in fact, approved. In contracts or forms, a visual mark may be placed not to miss the fields for signatures or initials.

To help with that, the Add a stamp tool is available.

Important note

Custom stamps may also be used to place seals or logos. The timing of placing a stamp is very flexible; it simply depends on its message. Dynamic stamps—such as Approved, Reviewed, Revised, and so on—included as defaults and containing the time and date of placement imply that they should be used at the end of the review cycle.

Stamps are very intuitive and easy to use. Here is a screenshot...
