About Adobe PDF

Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universal file format that preserves all of the fonts, formatting, colors, and graphics of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. Adobe PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated, and printed exactly as intended by anyone with the free Adobe Reader. You can convert almost any document to Adobe PDF using Acrobat Standard or Acrobat Professional software.

  • Adobe PDF preserves the exact layout, fonts, and text formatting of electronic documents, regardless of the computer system or platform used to view these documents.

  • PDF documents can contain multiple languages, such as Japanese and English, on the same page.

  • PDF documents print predictably with proper margins and page breaks.

  • PDF files can be secured to prevent undesired changes or printing, or to limit access to confidential documents.

  • The view magnification of a PDF page can be changed using controls in Acrobat or Adobe Reader. This feature can be especially useful for zooming in on graphics or diagrams containing intricate details.
