Computerstream have successfully built their business around the application and implementation of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) as a viable business solution to everyday document distribution problems. Computerstream are specialists in the development of Acrobat plug-in technologies. Acrobat Plug-ins have been written for clients in Europe and the USA to fulfill many varied requirements. Many of these plug-in solutions have been developed to a specific customer requirement however some have been supplied as standard "out-of-the-box" solutions e.g. PDF Protector.
Current projects heavily feature document control and document distribution mechanisms. This is mainly due to the acceptance of Intranet/Internet technology, as a vehicle for the distribution of documentation. The medium for electronic distribution of documentation over the last year or so has been CD-ROM, however there is now a developing trend in the acceptance of using the Internet/Intranet as a document distribution and delivery vehicle. This transition process becomes less painful when using Acrobat PDF as it is well suited to Internet/Intranet-based applications. In particular as it maintains the integrity of paper. One of the burning topics of the day is how you both maintain the integrity of paper and control the output of these documents.
Computerstream is able to draw heavily from its expertise in controlled print developments to enable PDF-based documents to be secured against unauthorised or fraudulent use on CD-ROM or the Internet/Intranet by allowing documents to be controlled up-to and after issue. Dynamic interfacing with other applications such as Electronic Document Management (EDM) systems ensure that our clients can automatically control documents from the initial authorship right up until the documents are destroyed or archived.
OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
