Commenting and Forms

Adobe Reader 8 features commenting tools and the ability to save information that you fill out in a PDF form. If you own Acrobat 8 Professional, you know you can add Reader commenting and form-saving privileges to a PDF document. This feature has long provided Acrobat Professional users the capability to insert feedback in the document. But now the commenting tool, including its other useful features—such as notes, highlighting, striking out, underlining of words, plus the capability of saving the information that was filled out in a form—are all available in the free version of Reader 8 as well (FIGURE 3-3). Reader 8 has the capability to fill in a form, save it to your computer, and send it to someone as an attachment to an email.
