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.
