Using Acrobat tools

The tool bar contains tools for scrolling, zooming, changing the appearance of text, cropping pages, adding annotations, and making other changes to the current PDF document.

To select a tool, you can either click the tool in the tool bar or press the tool's keyboard shortcut. For example, you can press Z to select the zoom-in tool from the keyboard. Selected tools remain active until you select a different tool.
