Event Details
Adobe Acrobat has become the standard and staple for delivering Portable Document Format (PDF) to press, to clients, and now to mobile devices as interactive documents and forms. Its unique ability to retain the intended design makes it the most powerful collaboration tool and the perfect companion for InDesign. Released in the fall of 2012, Acrobat XI is now available with Adobe’s Creative Cloud (CC) subscription.
As we celebrate our fourth anniversary this October, we are proud to bring you a special guest speaker, Claudia McCue. Join us as Claudia reveals many of Acrobat XI’s new features and capabilities in her unique style, for a fun and educational night where she will cover the following topics:
• New editing features in Acrobat XI
• Customizing tool panels
• “Reverse engineering” PDFs to generate Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files
• Acrobat form basics
• Creating matrices in PDF forms
• Adding calculations to PDF forms
• Choosing the correct setting for your output
• Reducing file size without deteriorating quality
• Collaboration made easy
• And more
