Chapter 7. Adding Comments > Enabling Reader Users to Add Comments

Enabling Reader Users to Add Comments

New to Acrobat 7 Professional is the ability to enable users of Adobe Reader to add comments to your PDF. Let's say you have a PDF you want to get some feedback on and you need to send it to several people. Everyone may not have Acrobat Professional, but anyone can get a copy of Adobe Reader 7.0 since it's free. Acrobat's new ability makes it possible to collaborate with those users who don't have Acrobat but do have Reader.

To enable a PDF for commenting in Reader

1.
Open the document that you want to enable for Reader.

2.
Choose Comments > Enable For Commenting in Adobe Reader (Figure 7.8).

Figure 7.8. You can enable for commenting in Adobe Reader 7.0.


This launches the Reader Enable Document for Commenting dialog box, which warns you that once you enable the document, it will become restricted for all users, even those using Acrobat.

3.
Click the OK button (Figure 7.9).

The Save As dialog box launches for you to give the file a new name or overwrite the old one.

4.
Enter a name for the file and click Save.
