This Adobe Acrobat Introduction course is designed to introduce delegates to Adobe Acrobat’s Portable Document Format (PDF) – the industry standard for electronic document exchange.  Learn how to convert documents into PDF format whilst maintaining page layout and preventing changes to documents, even if they are shared with others.  You will create, edit and combine PDF files, add navigation, optimise fonts and images to ensure a small file size and cross platform compatibility.
