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.
