Adobe Acrobat 8 Tutorial

Adobe® Acrobat® 8 is the premier PDF (Portable Document Format) creation and authoring tool that enables users and workgroups to easily create, manipulate, and re-purpose intelligent PDF documents for web, print, online collaboration, data collection and more. In this VTC course, Author Eric Butow demonstrates how to use Acrobat 8 by starting with the basic functions such as the getting started wizard, quick tasks, converting an existing file to PDF format, and setting Acrobat preferences. He then moves on to more advanced topics including editing PDF files, distributing PDF files, collaborating with other users within Acrobat, and collecting data from PDF forms. Instruction is applicable to both Acrobat 8 and Acrobat 8 Professional. To begin learning today, simply click on one of the Adobe Acrobat 8 movie links.
