Adobe Reader is a tool for opening and using Adobe PDFs that are created in Acrobat. Although you can’t create PDFs in Reader, you can use Reader to view, print, and manage PDFs. After opening a PDF in Reader, you have a variety of tools to help you find information quickly. If you receive a PDF form, you can complete it online and submit it electronically. If you receive an invitation to review a PDF, use the commenting and markup tools to annotate it. Use the Reader multimedia tools to play video and music in a PDF. And if a PDF contains sensitive information, you can sign or certify a document with a digital ID.
With Adobe Reader, you can easily view, print, and search PDFfiles using a variety of platforms and devices. New version features: Enhance interaction with PDF Portfolios – PDF Portfolios provide easier navigation when you work with multiple PDF documents and other document types. Portfolios also enable you to work with a collection of materials such as drawings, e-mail messages, spreadsheets, and videos as a single file, which makes distribution, storage, retrieval, and collaboration easy for end users. From Reader 9, you can go directly into Acrobat.com (beta), an exciting new set of online services from Adobe, to perform common tasks, such as:
- Create up to five Adobe PDF files
- Share and store documents on the web
- Create and collaborate on a document in Adobe Buzzword
