Users often prefer to rely to PDF documents to share their data or to distribute it over the Internet. Even if this format provides increased compression and password protection, it also requires dedicated software for accessing and editing it.
Adobe Acrobat X Pro is a such an office tool that lets users create PDF files, PDF forms or PDF portfolios, as well as combine files into a PDF, or share them by using SendNow Online or email.
When creating PDF files, users have the possibility to open any supported file format (including images and multimedia files) and save them as PDF documents. This can come in handy if, for example, a frame of a video is captured then saved as a PDF.
Creating a PDF Portfolio offers users five layouts to choose from: Click-Through, Freeform, Grid, Linear, and Wave. From the content point of view, the result of the presentation is the same, no matter which layout you choose as the difference lies in the visual effects only.
After creating a presentation, it can be viewed in Adobe Acrobat X Pro, but to actually see the content, each file needs to be extracted from the portfolio, or opened in Native Application. There is also the ability to open multiple windows and have multiple projects running simultaneously.
Adobe Acrobat X Pro comes with a user-friendly interface, and each function and feature is neatly organized within its own menu or tab, allowing users to easily locate it. Also, complex actions are structured into wizards, thus helping people successfully generate PDF forms or portfolios.
In addition, the software can be used to insert comments, annotations, signatures or bookmarks to each open PDF file, thus customizing and adding more information to their documents. When distributing the files, it also helps if the PDFs are protected by passwords: users can assign owner and user passwords, strengthening the file protection.
All in all, Adobe Acrobat X Pro provides numerous tools for editing, personalizing or easily sharing PDF files that can be evaluated for 30 days after which a purchased license is required.
