Adobe Acrobat 4 is used primarily for the creation of PDF files for CD and on the web. If you want to create a file (or scanned material) for others who don't have your application or fonts, then Acrobat is used to create the PDF file (Portable Document Format). Using Acrobat Reader (a free application), anyone can view your document just the way you created it. In this Virtual Training Company tutorial, Dave Cross guides you through the basics of Acrobat 4 and creating PDF files, then slides into more complicated topics, such as adding interactive links and digital signatures. To get started, simply click one of the movie topics below.
