Lesson 5. Modifying PDF Documents > Opening and examining the work file

Opening and examining the work file

You'll work with an edition of Aesop's Fables that has been designed for online viewing and converted to PDF. Because this online book has passed through multiple designers and review cycles, it contains a number of mistakes. In this lesson you'll use Acrobat to correct the problems in this PDF document and optimize Aesop's Fables for the next generation of wise youngsters.

Start Acrobat.

Choose File > Open. Select Afables.pdf, located in the Lesson05 folder, located inside the Lessons folder within the AA4_CIB folder on your hard drive, and click Open. Then choose File > Save As, rename the file Afables1.pdf, and save it in the Lesson05 folder.

Notice that bookmarks for the individual fables in this document have already been created.

Bookmarks for Aesop's Fables

Select the hand tool, and click the Table of Contents bookmark to go to the table of contents.

Move the pointer into the document. Notice that the titles in the list have already been linked.

Move pointer into document.

This example of Aesop's Fables was originally designed using Adobe PageMaker. When the PageMaker file was converted to PDF, the entries in the formatted table of contents were converted to PDF bookmarks and links automatically.

Certain page-layout and book-publishing programs, such as PageMaker or Adobe Frame Maker, work in conjunction with Acrobat to automate the creation of links and bookmarks during the conversion to PDF. In Windows, you can preserve links created in Microsoft Word 95 or 97 by using the Create Adobe PDF command.

Click The Fox and the Grapes to follow its link.

Click the Go to Previous View button () to return to the table of contents. You'll continue exploring this edition of Aesop's Fables.
