Product DescriptionAdobe Acrobat 5.0 is PDF-creation software from the people who first established the PDF standard. PDF (Portable Document Format) remains the best way of making documents that can be read by anyone on any platform. Version 5.0 brings significant improvements, particularly with regard to its interaction with other leading software such as the Office suite and programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator. Installation is easy and features a function button added to Office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. When you have written a document in these programs, simply click the PDF button on the toolbar and it will guide you through saving it as a PDF. Anyone with Acrobat Reader, which is free and available for download from Adobe's Web site, can view the documents. These documents can also be uploaded to Internet sites, or onto networks. This is a key feature of this version. This Web-savvy function means that documents can be posted on the Intranet or a network and other users can simultaneously view, write on, edit, highlight and stick notes on it, using Acrobat's tools within their browser window. This has obvious merit for anyone who has meetings not everyone can attend. Graphics from leading software such as Illustrator and Photoshop can be placed into these PDFs and when clicked on later will launch the creation program if editing is needed. Digital signatures can be created and added to the PDF file so that once the key is exchanged with your chosen recipient, security of documents is assured as only they can open it. All in all, Acrobat 5.0 should be an essential part of the toolbox of anyone who needs to share documents. It is easy to use and creates extremely high-quality items, whether business spreadsheets, brochures for customers (it maintains the integrity of the on-screen version on printers, ensuring that the look you intended is rendered to a high-quality) or Web sites. All this can be achieved within a guaranteed-secure environment.
