Lesson 10. Designing Online Documents > Creating an online document

Creating an online document

Now you'll work on designing a prototype of an online guide for Acrobat, Acrobat 5.0—A Beginner's Guide. The files for this portion of the lesson were created in Adobe FrameMaker and then converted to Adobe PDF. Because this is a prototype document designed simply to illustrate a concept, little effort was put into using the features of FrameMaker to generate automatically linked text. Instead, you'll create just enough links using Acrobat to demonstrate how the document will work.

Choosing a page size

Computer monitors generally do not display an 8-1/2 x 11 inch page size in portrait mode well. With this page size, your users would probably be inconvenienced by having to scroll to view material on the lower half of the page. Reducing the page to fit on their screen would make the contents hard or even impossible to read. For these reasons, you should use a landscape page orientation or custom design a page size if your document is to be viewed primarily on-screen.
