Chapter 1. Acrobat Basics

Chapter 1. Acrobat Basics

Adobe Acrobat's Portable Document Format (PDF) is truly amazing. This file format lets you read any electronic document on almost any computer system. Anyone with the free Adobe Reader software can open and view a document converted to a PDF, and it will look exactly the way it did in the original authoring program (such as Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign). It doesn't matter how the document was originally created.

Acrobat lets you do more than just read a PDF file; you can also edit its text, add pages, include comments, start a review, create a form for the Web, add links, create navigational structures, and even turn a PDF into a multimedia presentation with dazzling transitions between pages. I'll deal with the more complex features in later chapters. For now, let's look at the basic features to get a general idea of what this software can do for you.
