I can’t say enough good things about Adobe’s Acrobat 7.0 Professional. While Adobe’s Reader software is invaluable for anyone looking at company literature (particularly PDF product files) on the web, Acrobat 7.0 Professional opens up the review, markup and approval process by enabling enhanced capabilities in Adobe Reader.
Not to be outdone, in addition to the ability to reliably view and print Adobe PDF files, Adobe Reader 7.0 now offers more powerful capabilities. Users can participate in document reviews, have Yahoo! Search capabilities at their fingertips and can interact with 3D objects placed in PDF.
Adobe has distributed more than half-a-billion copies of Adobe Reader since its 1993 introduction. If you’re not one of those half-a-billion, the free download is available at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
Acrobat 7.0 comes in two versions – Professional ($449 or as a $159 upgrade) and Standard ($299 or as a $99 upgrade) – directly from the Abode web site (www.adobe.com).
With its recent purchase of Macromedia and its Flash technologies, this is one company – and product line – to keep a close watch on this year.
