We've all been there. You receive a document in
email that won't print correctly because it was created with fonts not installed
on your system, or the file is a QuarkXPress document and you use PageMaker.
Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) was designed to alleviate that
frustration, and it's quickly become the cross-platform standard. If you need to
send, annotate, and receive documents that retain fidelity to their formatting,
you need PDF with Acrobat 5: Visual QuickStart Guide. Author Jen Alspach
takes a task-based, visual approach to teaching Acrobat, using pictures to guide
readers through the basics of creating PDF files with Acrobat 5, adding
annotations, creating forms, viewing PDFs online, and using Acrobat with Adobe
Illustrator and InDesign. Acrobat 5.0's new features, including digital
signatures, batch processing, customizable toolbars, and increased security
options are also explained throughout this book.
