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.

Summary

In this chapter, we learned what multimedia is available in PDFs and what the practical limits are. We added navigation buttons, video, and audio. We explored 3D PDF tools for viewing content exported from 3D modeling software. We also refined the transitions between pages in a finished presentation and adjusted the settings for an auto-running slideshow. Finally, we created a .pdf version of a PowerPoint presentation that will serve as a backup if the use of a PowerPoint file is not possible, or when you simply need an archive.

The next chapter is exciting. We will learn how Adobe InDesign and Acrobat work together. Many features are so closely integrated that you may want to expand your own tool set for authoring publications, such as commenting, accessibility, interactivity, and color. If you already are an InDesign user, you will find many details that will help you in the production process.
