Class Description

Adobe Acrobat Pro is used to create, manipulate, and view PDFs. Learn how to create fill-in forms, share non-printing comments, edit text, password protect files, convert docs into PDFs from other applications, and more!

Objectives

We will use Acrobat Pro to make edits to any PDF ensuring that they retain the original structure/design. We will also expose some of its limitations regarding style edits. Used correctly, Acrobat Pro is a powerful collaboration tool for documents shared online or via email. We will cover many of the hidden features that really enhance the user experience whether it's reading or filling out PDF using the form function tools.

Activities

The class begins with simple edits to text and images. We will cover the many collaborative tools, like how to mark-up with copy editing comments, create privacy restrictions with password protection, and generate forms that can be downloaded from a website, filled out by a student/person and then emailed back to a specific email address.

By the end of the class we will be able to make edits, mark-ups/comments, or setup enhanced features (i.e. bookmarks and hyperlinks) that make reading/navigating PDFs much more efficient and user-friendly.
