Lesson 3. Creating Adobe PDF Files > About PDF documents

About PDF documents

Adobe Acrobat is not a program that enables you to create content. The content of any PDF document must be created in a program other than Acrobat. You can use any word-processing, page-layout, graphic, or business program to create content and then convert that content to Adobe PDF at the time you would normally print to paper. You can think of Adobe PDF files as the electronic equivalents of your printed documents.

You can also create PDF documents by “capturing” scanned images of paper documents (see “Converting paper documents to Adobe PDF” on page 69) and converting Web pages (see Lesson 9, “Creating Adobe PDF from Web Pages”).
