Mz Dreadlock 2.0 out of 5 stars Hello? Anyone home?I have version 7 and I really wasn't comfortable with all the fine details. This book has been a lifesaver. I got the Bible (a lot of useless information; no meat)and the Classroom in a Book (waste of time). This book was so easy to read and understand. I would have felt like a fool at this presentation had I not read it.

I work at a college in NJ and I am recommending this book as the textbook for the e-portfolio center. I had another book by this guy and it was pretty good which is how I happened upon it. One thing though; who designed the cover of the book. Talk about hokey. Don't consider the cover a reflection of the contents which is great!I had no idea Acrobat did so many things. As a result, at the end of the presentation, before I even left the room I received 4 referrals for work (which I closed on). The book more than paid for itself!! I highly recommend this information, through and easy to use book for anyone who wants to tap into the awesome power of Acrobat 7.After upgrading to Version 7, I decided to maximize my software investment and read up a bit. In just the first few chapters, it's possible to get a firm grasp of what one can do with the software. The author does an excellent job of explaining Acrobat's features. It's now simple to create sophisticated PDF documents that enable me to share information with my clients more easily than before. Also, adding interactivity to my PDF documents makes it easier for my audience to quickly navigate to the desired part of the document. If you're new to Acrobat, or looking to increase your knowledge, this is the book for you. It's easy to read, and the information is presented in a logical manner.It's impossible to know everything about a single product but having a book like this means you can get to grips with the features that are available and get an understanding of how they work. As with the last version of this book it provides a good all over coverage of the important features. I disagree with the above reviewer's statements about the Mac side - Adobe is primarily focused with PC as that represents the majority of their userbase and hence development energy. The author does point out the differences where they are applicable. One of the things I like most about the author is his approach to explaining the concepts.

He manages to introduce key concepts in a way that made sense and then carried them through with real examples (especially the Digital Signatures section). I highly recommend this book for anyone who is either new to Acrobat or is looking to extend their knowledge of Acrobat's features.I realize Windows is the dominant OS, but Acrobat is just as much (if not more, as a a percentage) used on the Mac. Shame on the author for not even bothering to mention the differences.Before you take the three five-star-reviewers seriously notice that they are solely five-star-reviewers. Naturally I am very skeptical of their 5-star review of this or any other book. Please try again.Please try again.Please try again.

The speed with which you can create a very powerful form tempts many beginning users to overlook some fundamental issues. My phone rings at least once a week with a call from someone who got excited about Acrobat's form tools, developed a form, distributed it and then began fielding calls from unhappy users. Before you reach for the mouse and start creating form fields, at a minimum use the following checklist to plan your form deployment. You will save yourself a lot of heartburn if you do. Which viewer will your end user have. Do you have any control over whether they are using Reader, Adobe Acrobat and the version of each. Do the users expect to be able to save the data, or is a printout OK. Can they complete the form in one session, or will it take multiple sessions. What happens after the user completes the form. Do they print and mail it. E-mail it?

Submit the data to a database. Will the form perform calculations. Will the form be printed and signed with an ink pen, or digitally signed? Now that you know what to ask, let's look at why the answers to these five questions matter. As you could logically expect, software someone buys can do more than software that is free. Whether your end user has Acrobat or Reader is critical because Reader has limited capability to work with form data. For example, Reader cannot save form data locally, nor can users digitally sign forms, unless you buy another product from Adobe or subscribe to a service. If users can complete the form in one sitting, they don't need to save the data locally. If users need more than one session and need to save the data locally, they will either need Acrobat Standard, Professional or 3D. Reader users can have the same functionality only if the form has been processed by Reader Extensions Server. Adobe is continuously upgrading its software, so newer versions can do everything that the old versions could plus more. (For details, see the Reader 7 User Guide; if your end users use a version other than 7, see that version's Help.) Which version of Reader or Acrobat is important, too. Beginning with Acrobat 7 Professional, Adobe is including in the Windows version of Professional and 3D a dedicated form-design tool called Adobe LiveCycle Designer. After completion Now that the user has completed the form, what do they do. Print? E-mail? Submit to a Web server. Connect to a database. A fill-and-print form, like most at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) website, is the easiest. The user fills out the form and then prints it, either by using a button you add to the form or by using the Print icon in either Acrobat or Reader. Next easiest is submitting form data via e-mail, which works in either Reader or Acrobat. Submitting to a Web server will require help from your IT department.

As the form designer, you can create a submit button, but your IT department will need to develop a script that accepts the data from your form and then processes it. For example, your IT department could use Microsoft ASP, Macromedia ColdFusion or Adobe LiveCycle Forms to process your form data. If you would like your data to end up in a database, you can use Web technologies, such as ColdFusion. If your users have Acrobat, are on your network and your IT department can give them an Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) connection, LiveCycle Designer can produce a form linked to a database. Creating ODBC-connected forms is within the capability of most form developers and is explained in Designer Help. Designer-created forms also can use Web Services Description Language (WSDL) to send and receive data from databases. Acrobat can use Acrobat Database Connectivity (ADBC) to communicate with databases using ODBC, but be forewarned that ADBC requires the extensive use of JavaScript. There are a variety of third-party tools available as well. Calculations Math mistakes are one of the biggest sources of user errors in forms. If you don't eliminate these mistakes by including calculations in your form, you are missing most of the technology's potential. One of the great things about Acrobat is the capability to easily perform basic calculations. In the Calculate tab in Text Field Properties, you can click fields you would like to sum in the Value is the Sum of.See Acrobat Help for details on using each of these. Designer lacks Acrobat's point-and-click method of performing calculations. However, it has something equivalent to Simplified Field Notation called FormCalc. Of course, you can use JavaScript for calculations, too. See Designer Help for more information on using FormCalc and JavaScript. Signing forms As a forms author, you can add digital signature fields with either Acrobat or LiveCycle Designer.

Your end users can then either sign the form once or multiple times as part of a workflow. Adding the fields is the easy part. Now let's talk about the user experience. Uncertified forms will present your users with a potentially off-putting security warning as soon as they click in a digital signature field. Certified documents will display a blue ribbon in the lower-left corner of the screen and present a more comforting Certification VALID dialog to end-users. Click image to enlarge Signature terminology can be a bit complex. As you can see in the Document is Not Certified dialog box and in the Acrobat 7.0.5 Security User Guide, the form author's signature can be called a Certifying Signature, but it is most often referred to as an Authoring Signature. End-user signatures are called Ordinary Signatures or Recipient Signatures. In Acrobat 7, there are two paths for certifying a form. Which path you take depends on whether the form was created in Acrobat or Designer. This certification creates an invisible signature. If the form is created in LiveCycle Designer, the best practice is to have at least two signature fields on the form-one you as the form author will sign (perhaps on behalf of your organization) before the form is deployed, and the rest for end-users. All of these signatures will be visible. Adobe Reader users also can sign forms if the forms have been processed by Reader Extensions Server. Conclusion Acrobat and Designer are great tools for creating electronic forms, but you can easily go off track if you overlook some basic aspects of your business workflow, such as which PDF-viewing software your end user has. You can have a successful form deployment if you take a few moments to look at the whole form workflow before you start adding fields to a form. Terms of Use Privacy Policy and Cookies Contact Us.

Update to the latest version for a better, faster, stronger (and safer) browsing experience.And in order for PDFs to adapt to various viewing platforms, the file's text and images can't easily be modified once packaged into a PDF. You can even do this online, as well as convert PDFs back into Microsoft Word documents to edit your content in its original, editable format. Don't worry, it's compatible with both Mac and Windows computers. However, not every version of Acrobat allows you to edit existing text once you open your document in this program. The company offers the following three editions in both product lines: Acrobat X, Acrobat XI, and Acrobat DC. Read on to learn how to edit PDFs using other hardware and software beyond Adobe's suite of products. But that also means there isn't one universal set of directions to edit on each website available to you. The image below shows you Sejda's editing toolbar, and you'll see a similar menu of options in many online PDF editors you try. For example, because Sejda can't accept PDFs larger than 50 megabytes (MB), check the size of your document and identify an editing tool that is compatible with your PDF. Just be sure to repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each image you want to extract from your original PDF -- this is a unique function to Mac computers, and each extraction will take a screenshot of your image, saved to your desktop. The above steps might be a bit time-consuming. Behold, PDF Expert: You don't have to migrate your text to a new document and take image screenshots the way you would in the 10 steps above.

May your thirst for exclusivity be quenched: You can also download PDF Viewer Plus, a program offered only in the Microsoft store. The app is free to download and works just as easily as PDF Expert does on Macs. And you're right. Remember, as stated earlier in this article, you can only do this in Acrobat XI and Acrobat DC -- using either Adobe's Standard or Pro edition. One editor that also allows you to edit in Word we already mentioned: Smallpdf. In this version of Smallpdf, you'll upload your document and follow the prompts on the website to convert into and save your PDF as a Word document. See an image of this process below: Go now, and amend your PDF, no matter what your platform and editing needs might be.

It is important to choose a version compatible with the recipient's version of Acrobat or Reader. For example, Acrobat 7 cannot open a PDF encrypted for Acrobat X and later. To apply 256-bit AES encryption to documents created in Acrobat 8 and 9, select Acrobat X And Later. How to Highlight with Adobe Acrobat Adobe Reader is the free version of Acrobat, and although it has less functionality than the full version, there is still a highlight tool. If you plan on using a copy of Reader, you can follow the same steps below. First, download the software from Adobe's website, and then start the installation process. If you've set Acrobat as your default program for PDFs, simply double-click on the file that you want to highlight, and Acrobat will open. Now, choose the highlighter tool (it looks like a highlighter with the letter T), which is located on the right side of the toolbar. Drag the tool over any text you'd like to highlight, and the passages will be updated in bright yellow. Next, click on the highlighter button at the top of the screen. If you click on the highlighter drop-down arrow, you can choose from a variety of colors. To highlight a passage, just drag your cursor over the text, and then save your changes.

One of those programs, Adobe Acrobat, provides something called the Adobe PDF Postscript printer driver. This Adobe PDF printer driver is used to create PDF documents using the Adobe Acrobat service. In case you have problems with the installation process, here is how to install Adobe’s Print to PDF driver so you can create PDF documents for your business.

How to Install Your Adobe Print to PDF Driver on Windows First, if you do not have any version of Adobe Acrobat Standard or Acrobat Pro installed, you will want to install that program. The Adobe PDF printer driver is usually installed properly as part of the normal installation process of Adobe Acrobat. If for some reason the Adobe PDF printer driver isn’t installed as part of the standard installation process, you can follow these steps to install it manually: Click the Start menu, and go to Control Panel. From the Control Panel, select Devices and Printers. Choose the option to Add a printer. From the Add a device window, choose the option to Add a local printer. If that option isn’t available, click The printer that I want isn’t listed from the bottom of the window. From the Add Printer window, choose Add a Local Printer or Network printer with Manual Settings. You must now choose a printer port, which is shorthand for a connection that exchanges information from your computer directly to a printer. It will be found at the following directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat \Acrobat\Xtras\AdobePDF. From the AdobePDF folder, choose the file called AdobePDF.inf, and then click Open. This should now have populated a series of printer drivers labeled Adobe PDF Converter in the Install the Printer Driver section of the Add Printer window. These are all different versions that correlate with different versions of Windows, so you may have to try a couple different ones by selecting one and clicking Next before finding the one that corresponds to your current Windows variation. Once you have selected the right one, Rename it accordingly, and follow any accompanying on-screen directions to finish the installation process. Now, your PDF printer driver should be properly installed. Printing a PDF With the Adobe PDF Printer Driver on Windows As a quick recap now that your PDF printer driver is installed, anytime you want to print a PDF, go to File, and select Print.

From the Print Window, select the option for Adobe PDF as your printer of choice, and click Print. You will be asked to name the new PDF file and choose the location you want to save it. Once you click Save, your PDF will be ready for you to access. Troubleshooting Your Adobe PDF Printer Driver on Windows If for some reason your Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver is not appearing under the Available Printers section of your Control Panel on Windows, try going to the Help window in Acrobat, and select the Repair Installation option. If you see your Adobe PDF printer show up, but still fails to function correctly, you will need to delete the printer, reboot your computer, and try Repair Installation option again. How to Print to a PDF on a Windows Without the Adobe Driver As of Windows 10, it is possible to print to a PDF without Adobe or another third-party printer driver. To print using the onboard Windows 10 tools, go to File, then Print and select the option called Microsoft Print to PDF as your printer. Name and save the file at the location you want accordingly, and choose OK. If this option isn’t available to you, you can install this PDF printer driver manually as well. You will be prompted to select a manufacturer, so choose Microsoft, then select Microsoft Print to PDF and hit Next once more. You will be prompted to either replace the current driver, or use the driver already installed, so use the one already installed, rename it if you wish, and click Next to finish installing the Microsoft Print to PDF option. How to Print to a PDF on a Mac OSX Without the Adobe Driver The Adobe PDF printer driver from Acrobat is not actually available to Mac users. Instead, you can still print to PDF by using the Save As Adobe PDF option. Simply open a file on any Mac OS application, like Pages, and select the option to Print from the File drop down menu. On the Print window, click PDF, and select the Save as Adobe PDF option.
