How To… or Not

Some people like to work in the midst of menus and dialogs to make it easier to access commands and tools. Others prefer a more minimal approach, showing and hiding panes as necessary. The How To pane is displayed by default, but if you prefer, you can hide it and use other options to access the information when you need to:

  • Click Hide to close the pane.

  • In the default toolbar setup, click the How To task button to reopen the pane, which always opens at the same screen location.

  • Choose Help > How To to display the same How To list of topics. Click an option to display its content in the How To pane.

  • In the General Preferences, deselect Show How To Window at Startup. From then on, your program opens without the pane displayed, and you can open it from the toolbar's task buttons or the Help menu if required.


The How To pane contains a list of the most common tasks you are likely to perform in Acrobat 7 (Figure 2a) and includes specific groupings of tools for special purposes such as examining and measuring engineering drawings and preparing a document for print production. For example, click Create PDF to open a list of topics. Follow these pointers to make your way through the How To topics:
