The all or nothing approach of our recent tip on opening Acrobat faster was, as we said, only really useful when you wanted to read or view a PDF file -- the main problem with it was that your manipulation of the PDF became impossible because it turned Acrobat into little more than an Acrobat Reader-like application. So what if you want to open Acrobat faster but still have access to your favorite tools?
Ever wondered why Adobe Acrobat takes a long time to open? Apart from it being influenced by the speed of your computer, the main reason is because it has to load many plug-ins. In Acrobat these plug-ins are used for everything from annotations and markup, to applying security and touching up text.
Acrobat's Web Capture is a handy tool when you want to grab an archive of a Web page or site, or want to add comments to a Web page. If you're not familiar with the tool, Acrobat allows you to type in the URL of the Web page you want and to visit and Acrobat can then 'captures' (or converts) it to PDF. Acrobat gives you the choice of opening Web links with your Web browser, or through the Web Capture conversion tool.
