Adobe Acrobat XI (11) Pro and PDF Files

Acrobat is an absolutely essential tool in the ongoing struggle between paper and electronic documents! Use Acrobat to create an electronic version of almost any document in the Portable Document Format (PDF), while preserving the exact look and content of the original, including fonts and graphic images. You can distribute PDF files via email or store them on the Internet so others can easily access your documents without the usual problems associated with opening files on different platforms (i.e. Windows, Macintosh and Unix).

Learn how to create, edit and manage your own library of electronic PDF files.

This course will cover:

  • The differences between different versions of Acrobat, and between Acrobat (commercial version) and Acrobat Reader (free version)
  • The benefits of using Acrobat rather than other applications to create PDF files
  • Navigating the Acrobat user interface
  • Creating PDF files using different methods
  • Converting existing documents created using common applications (i.e. Word, PowerPoint and Excel) to PDF files
  • Combining documents created in different applications into one PDF file
  • Creating bookmarks, articles, and actions to make navigating the PDF file easier for your audience
  • Using Acrobat's various markup tools to annotate PDF files and add comments
  • Presenting PDF files effectively on the screen

Prerequisites: Good working knowledge of the Windows operating system, navigating the Internet using a Web browser, and the Office applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel).
