Our Adobe Acrobat workshops include:
This 6 hour course is for individuals with little or no experience using Acrobat, but who need to create and share PDF files and PDF Portfolios. Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will open a PDF and explore the interface; create PDF documents in a variety of ways (from a file, using the Print command, from web pages and more); and navigate to and search for specific content in a PDF document (search multiple PDF documents, work with bookmarks, use links). We will learn how to update PDF documents (manipulate document pages, make basic editing changes to content, add page elements and extract content); optimize and convert PDF documents to other formats. Finally we will look at how to initiate a review of a PDF and how to optimize and convert a PDF to other file formats.
In this 6-hour intermediate course you are ready to further develop your PDF documents. We will learn how to use Acrobat X Pro to convert technical documents to PDF files, enhance and control PDF content accessibility, customize PDF documents for interactive use online, and prepare PDFs for commercial printing.
Acrobat X Professional helps you create portable document format (PDF) files from Microsoft Office, Outlook, Internet Explorer, AutoCADŽ, Lotus Notes, or any application that prints. Topics in this short course will include discussing the use of PDF documents as a business tool; exploring the Acrobat environment; setting preferences; looking at the various buttons and toolbars available; and learning how to navigate a PDF document. Finally, we'll see how easy it is to create a PDF--from a single file, from multiple files, and from a Web page.
You’re already familiar with paper forms: documents with blanks that people fill in and deliver to the appropriate person or organization. An Adobe PDF form is a computer-based version of a form, which can either be distributed through email or CDs, or published on a website. In this 2-hour short course we'll explore PDF forms, we'll create a basic form, and look at how form data is collected and managed. Finally, we'll explore the use of Adobe LiveCycle for form design using one of the many templates available.
Portfolios collect a variety of documents and artifacts to communicate accomplishments, works in progress, or academic histories. With the Internet, both students and teachers can offer portfolios electronically, sharing work with peers, colleagues, parents, potential employers—anyone in the world—easily and quickly. A PDF portfolio created in Adobe Acrobat X Pro is a container for any sort of electronic media. It can store not only text but images, movies, audio, video—you can include almost any type of digital object in a PDF portfolio. In this new 2-hour workshop attendees will learn how to plan an e-portfolio; how to navigate the Acrobat interface and workspace; how to prepare files for inclusion; how to create and add content; how to personalize an e-portfolio; and finally how to publish an e-portfolio.
PDF files are not like other document formats, in which you can freely copy, paste, and move text and images on a page. Instead, consider a PDF as a snapshot of your original file. In this 2-hour short course we’ll learn how to use Acrobat X Professional to touch up and enhance PDFs for readability and distribution. Specific topics covered will include opening and examining documents; moving pages with thumbnails; adding and editing text on pages; editing links; deleting pages; renumbering pages; creating and working with bookmarks and articles; editing images and reducing file size.
You can conduct reviews for many types of documents by sending out a PDF version for others to review, or by posting a PDF to a shared server. Reviewers can add their comments to the PDF using commenting and markup tools and then send, or upload, their comments. In this 2-hour short course we will learn how to prepare for a PDF review, how to use the commenting and markup tools, and how to use a stamp or create a custom stamp.
