TIP 120: Starting a Review Process

In Acrobat 5 you could share comments with others and then incorporate all the comments into the original PDF document. Acrobat 6 made the process simpler, managing it through wizards and prompts. Now in Acrobat 7, you work with a separate Review window to control and manage your reviews. If you initiate the review process using Acrobat 7 Professional, you can enable the documents to be used by recipients working with Adobe Reader 7 as well. When you do this, some functions are restricted in Acrobat 7, such as inserting and deleting pages or editing content, signing the document, and filling in form fields.

Keep Your Sources Safe

It's a good idea to save a copy of the document prior to incorporating reviewers' comments. Edit the document using the copy to preserve the layout and structure. This way, imported comments are in the correct locations on the document. Acrobat reminds you about document versions. If you open a copy of a document that is part of an active review, a message window appears asking if you want to open the copy or incorporate any returned comments. A handy feature!
