Review questions

1:Describe three ways you can make a document collection more accessible to users.
A1: You can make the information in a document collection more accessible to users in these ways:
  • By compressing files to ensure that they're small enough for network distribution or for mass storage on CD volumes.

  • By using filenames that work across computer platforms.

  • By including a Welcome document with links to the document contents.

  • By ensuring that the collection includes document properties information such as title, subject, author, and keywords.

  • By organizing the files intuitively.

  • By indexing the document collection.

  • By including the Acrobat Reader application for viewing the documents.

  • By testing any electronic enhancements such as bookmarks, links, and forms, to make sure that they work as expected.

2:Why is providing a Welcome document important?
A2: Users may have difficulty determining where to start when first opening a CD or visiting a Web site, or determining what's in the document collection. A Welcome document can give users an overview of a document collection and can include links to specific places in the collection.
3:Why is it recommended that you name your files with one to eight characters plus a .pdf extension?
A3: Naming files with one to eight characters (no spaces) plus a .pdf extension enables properly configured applications to launch the appropriate program when they encounter PDF files. Most Web browsers, Web servers, and versions of Microsoft Windows have been configured to associate .pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, Acrobat Reader, or the Web browser plug-in.
4:What does the Fast Web View option do to your PDF files?
A4: When you apply the Fast Web View option, Acrobat restructures files to prepare for page-at-a-time downloading (byte-serving) from Web servers. With page-at-a-time downloading, the Web server sends only the requested page of information to the user, not the entire PDF document.
5:Are you allowed to include the Acrobat Reader installers on CDs that you publish?
A5: Yes, Adobe allows you to distribute the Acrobat Reader installers and application with PDF documents that you publish.
