Lesson 3. Creating Adobe PDF Files

Lesson 3. Creating Adobe PDF Files

Acrobat provides a variety of ways for you to create Adobe PDF files quickly and easily from existing electronic files or documents. You can use the Print command from within your authoring application, you can open files using the Open as Adobe PDF command, and you can convert scanned documents using Acrobat® Capture® or the Adobe Paper Capture Online service.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Use an authoring application's Print command to convert a file to Adobe PDF.

  • Open a text file in Acrobat, automatically converting it to Adobe PDF.

  • Create an Adobe PDF file by exporting a file from Adobe PageMaker.

  • Specify security settings for a file.

  • View security information for a document.

  • Correct PDF files created by converting paper documents to Adobe PDF using a scanner and the Web-based Paper Capture Online service.

This lesson will take about 50 minutes to complete.

If needed, remove the previous lesson folder from your hard drive, and copy the Lesson03 folder onto it.
