About Adobe Acrobat

Adobe Acrobat is a set of programs used to create, enhance, and read Portable Document Format (PDF) documents.

  • You create PDF documents by converting electronic documents or scanned printed documents using Acrobat Distiller or PDF Writer. PDF documents maintain the look and layout of the originals.

  • You enhance PDF documents by adding interactivity such as links, forms, and movies using Adobe Acrobat. You can also provide full-text indexes for PDF document collections using Acrobat Catalog.

  • You read PDF documents using Acrobat Reader, Adobe Acrobat, or Web browsers. You can publish documents on network and Web servers, CDs, and disks.



    The Adobe Acrobat 4.0 program set can be divided into three categories as shown in the following table.

    User workflow and document type determine which producer you should use to create a PDF file as well as which viewer to view it.
