  1. Using Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Colorado State University Cooperative Extension Technology Unit

  2. Basics What is Adobe Acrobat?, Navigating in Adobe Reader, Using Full Screen mode in Adobe Reader

  3. What is Adobe Acrobat? • Creates .pdf files • pdf = Portable Document Format • Used to distribute forms and documents in a standardized format • Can be read by free (and widely distributed) Adobe reader • Security tools: • Restrict who can see the document • Digitally sign/certify documents • Restrict printing (no printing, or low resolution only) • Restrict text/images from editing, copying and pasting • Particularly useful for web and email

  4. What is Adobe Acrobat (con’t)? • Original document is authored in another format, then converted • Office apps: Word, Wordperfect, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook • Graphics: .bmp, .gif, .jpeg, .ng, .eps, .psd • .html (single web page, or entire web sites) • Convert your own .html (to preview site for client) • Pull sites directly off the web by typing web address into Acrobat • Combine multiple documents (and multiple document types) into one .pdf document

  5. 3 types of Acrobat • Adobe Reader • Formerly called Acrobat Reader • Free, widely distributed • Can read .pdfs, but not create • If you offer .pdfs, always offer the link to the free reader as well (www.adobe.com – logo found there as well for an image link) • Adobe Acrobat (standard) • Converts most office applications and graphics to .pdf • Supports some multimedia, downloads websites • About $45 at CSU Software Cellar • Adobe Acrobat Pro • Interactive forms (buttons, checkboxes, text fields) • Supports more multimedia • MS Visio, MS Project, AutoCAD, Mac pict format • About $69 at CSU Software Cellar

  6. Navigating in Adobe Reader • Navigation tools in Reader: • Bookmark and page tabs at left side • Page toolbar at bottom • Zoom toolbar at top • Single/Continuous/Facing options at lower right • Full Screen View for presentation (lower left) • Scrollbars • Hand tool (drag doc from page to page) • Good idea to preview a doc in Reader, NOT Acrobat, to get a sense of what the end-user will see

  7. Full Screen View in Adobe Reader • Mimics basic PowerPoint presentation • Add limited transitions and auto-timing • In Acrobat: • Page tab>Options>Page Transitions • Set Effect, speed of effect • Auto-flip to create a self timed show • All pages, or a range • Hit Full Screen button to play slideshow

  8. Creating a .pdf Converting Microsoft Office documents, non-Office documents, images, multiple documents, websites

  9. Converting Microsoft Office Documents • Acrobat will add PDFMaker to your toolbar upon installation (unless you decline) • Three buttons: • Create .pdf • Create .pdf and email • Create .pdf and Send for Review • If you don’t see PDFMaker: • R-click near toolbars and check PDFMaker toolbar • If no PDFMaker toolbar option: Help>About…>Disabled Items>Choose Acrobat>Enable button

  10. PDF Conversion Settings • After install, should see “Adobe PDF” menu listed • Same 3 options as toolbar, and a fourth: “Change Conversion Settings” • Each MS Office Application has similar - not identical - set of Conversion Settings

  11. PDF Conversion Settings (con’t) • These 4 are common to most MS Office Apps • Attach Source File to PDF • Adds source file (e.g. Word, Excel) to .pdf as an attachment • Nice option, but obviously increases file size • Add Bookmarks to PDF • Good option for PPoint and Excel • Adds bookmark for each slide/sheet in document • Can seem a little haphazard in Word • Creates a bookmark for each Heading and/or Style • Often easier to create Word bookmarks in Acrobat • Add Links to PDF • Links in native app. a better “look and feel” than adding them in Acrobat • Enable Accessibility and Reflow with Tagged PDF • Allows re-flowed text for PDAs, text-to-speech, etc. • Only downside is a larger file size

  12. Converting Word to PDF • Conversion settings specific to Word • Word Tab • Convert displayed comments to notes • Convert cross-references, TOC to links • Convert footnote/endnote links • Bookmarks tab • Choose which headings and styles convert to bookmarks • A good choice IF your are already working with styles and headings to denote sections • Otherwise, do it in Acrobat

  13. Creating Bookmarks in Word • Assign a heading to every section in doc that require a bookmark • You can convert text to a heading quickly using the Format painter • Apply style to text once, select text, click Format Painter TWICE • Go through document selecting text – it will convert to that heading

  14. Converting PowerPoint to PDF • Conversion settings specific to PowerPoint • Save Slide Transitions • Only saves simple ones – best to add after the fact • Only need them in Full Screen mode • Save Animations • Only saves simple ones – best to add after the fact • Only need them in Full Screen mode • Convert multimedia to PDF multimedia • Applies to video, sound, images • Make sure and test! Lots of tweaking required for this! • Convert hidden slides • Slide-sorter view – you can “hide” slides to avoid deleting them • PDF Layout based on PowerPoint printer settings • Important for printing Notes page, Handouts • After settings set, set printer to Adobe PDF

  15. Converting Excel to PDF • Conversion settings specific to Excel: • Convert Entire Workbook is an option in the Adobe PDF menu • Each worksheet has a bookmark • Convert comments to notes • Fit worksheet to single page (grayed out if Convert Entire Workbook is selected) • Good option if doc is likely to be printed (as Excel worksheets can be hard to print and show all rows/columns)

  16. Converting Publisher to PDF • Specific to Publisher • Preserve Spot Color • All black and white except for chosen spot colors • Print Crop Marks • Where paper is cut • Allow Bleeds • Color extending beyond edge to allow for variations in cutting • Preserve Transparency • For .gif, .png, .tiff • These are options for high-end printers • If you are using a professional printer, call and ask them what they require

  17. Converting Access to PDF • Specific to Access • Only 2 options in Conversion Settings: • Attach source file • Create bookmarks • Tables can only be converted one at a time • Multiple reports can be converted simultaneously • Adobe PDF menu>Convert multiple reports to single PDF

  18. Combining Multiple Access Reports • Pretty simple – add reports from left column to right column, arrange, Convert to PDF

  19. Converting Outlook to PDF • Good way to archive emails • Includes attachments • 4 bookmarks created, sorting emails by date, sender, subject, folders • Can also combine emails with other documents • Include email exchanges discussing document along with document itself • Select messages or folders to archive, then convert

  20. Converting non-MS Office documents • Two methods: • Open document in native application • File>Print>Choose Adobe PDF as printer • It won’t print the file, merely convert • Good for Photoshop, Wordperfect, etc. • Works for Office Apps too • Open Adobe Acrobat • Create PDF>From File • Browse to the file

  21. Combining documents • Open Acrobat • Create PDF>From Multiple Documents • Can be a mix of document formats (VERY handy) • Browse to files, select, arrange, click OK

  22. Converting Images • .jpeg, .gif, .png, .tiff, .bmp, .eps • Don’t need a native application, because there is none • Open Acrobat • Create PDF>From File>Browse to image • Create PDF>From Multiple Files>Browse to images and create a montage that can work as a slideshow in Full Screen Mode

  23. Converting websites to PDF • Convert either existing website, or html • Second option a good way to preview a website for client without actually publishing the site to a server • Open Acrobat • Create PDF>From Website • Type in URL or browse to .html file

  24. The Convert Website Dialogue Box • Get entire site • Rarely a good idea unless it is small and self contained (i.e. no links to other sites) • 3 ways to limit download • Get only 1 or 2 levels • Stay on same path (will remain within root folder) • Stay on same server (will go outside root folder but only convert links to sites on same server)

  25. Converting Websites: Helpful Hints • If you need to capture large sections of a sprawling site or one that links to many other places, capture small sections or individual pages and pull them together with Create PDF>Multiple files • Use the Settings button, Page Layout tab to size and scale large web pages • Links in document still active for downloaded pages

  26. Converting a website: 3 examples • Create PDF>From Website • http://www.ext.colostate.edu • Good example of a large, sprawling site – “Get Entire Site” would be downloading for days • 1 level gets you only the current page • 2 levels pull ALL the links from this page, including navigation buttons at top (65 pages total) • Stay On Same Path/Server not very useful as most links are ON this path (SOSP gives a 47 page doc) • http://www.radon.org/ • Good example of a “Get Entire Site” candidate • Only links are to meaningful docs related to Radon • Includes slideshow downloaded intact • Browse to kiddos/kiddos.htm • Converted from local site, not from server

  27. Adding Navigation Aids Creating Bookmarks, Links, and Hotspots

  28. Adding bookmarks • Often easier to add Bookmarks in Acrobat rather than native application • Not just a navigation tool – also shows structure of document at a glance • Use Table of Contents as guide • Go to page you want to bookmark • Choose view (width, height, zoom in to specific object) • Bookmarks pane>New Bookmark icon • Name bookmark • Drag up or down in order • Drag under and to the right to nest it within a larger bookmark

  29. Adding Bookmarks (con’t) • Set view of page for bookmark - Fit Width or Height, zoom in to a specific feature • Often looks nice to have first page at fit width, ret of doc at fir height • Drag bookmarks around after creation to set order • Nest bookmarks within other bookmarks by dragging child under and just to the right of parent

  30. Bookmark Options • Options button allows: • Change text size • Wrap long bookmarks • Use Properties to change color and style (bold, italics, bold and italics)

  31. Adding text links • Unlike bookmarks, MS Office does better looking links than Acrobat • If possible, create links in native application • If not: • Bring up document in Acrobat • Choose Select tool and select text • R-Click (away from markup options icon) and choose Create Link

  32. Adding text links (con’t) • Type: visible rectangle • Style: underline • Highlight style will add a basic behavior • Action: open a web page (though you can link to other docs, or spots in this doc) • “Next” takes you to URL box • For email, mailto: followed by address

  33. Hotspot and Image links • Same process, just use the Snapshot tool instead of select • A visible rectangle and some type of link behavior is wise, to let the end user know there is a link
