Creating PDF Document Collections

April 04, 2006


Tired of losing track of your PDFs? Why not build a document collection in Acrobat? The Collections feature in Acrobat's Organizer allows users to group PDFs arbitrarily, arranged by project, type of content, client, etc. PDF documents in a collection need not even be co-located -- if the desired PDF documents were stored in various places locally and on a network, they could be added to a collection without the need to move files around. Further, individual PDF files can be included in multiple collections, which is invaluable for popular reference documents.

Here's how to create a PDF document collection in Acrobat 7:

  1. Open Adobe Acrobat 7.
  2. Select File > Organizer > Collections > Create A New Collection.
  3. Start your new collection by arranging your files from here.
