Organizing Your Passwords Using a Secure PDF

Ted Padova

It seems the Web has gone berserk with denying you access to even browse a site. In some cases, you need to enter a password to appear as a guest. You enter your user ID and password only to find out that the required number of characters exceed the number used for your password of choice. Acrobat can help you manage them.

Turning Paper Into Searchable PDFs

Richard Crocker

While Acrobat's Paper Capture plug-in is not going to give you the power to turn an office completely paperless, it's particularly useful for making key data and info available across a network. For example, imagine having information like commonly accessed contracts and documentation on a computer network, instead of locked away as paper in a filing cabinet. This tip introduces you to using Acrobat's Paper Capture plug-in.

Adding Voice Comments to Your PDFs

Richard Crocker

Sometimes its easier to speak something than to write it down -- that's the principle behind the Sound Attachment Tool, one of Acrobat's comment tools. For example, lawyers are renowned for their love of dictaphones, which they wield in place of a pen or a keyboard to update legal documents. After recording their alterations, an assistant will work with this tape and the source document, updating for it for another review process. Generally speaking voice comments can be useful for proofing documents.

Using Web Capture Effectively

Richard Crocker

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.
