Posted by 29 Nov, 2009

If you are using Acrobat Professional and you are sharing a document with someone who just has the Adobe Reader here is a nice tip on how to unlock more features in Reader.

When you have finished creating your PDF document select the “Advanced” tab and in the drop down menu select “Extend Features in Adobe Reader.” The following features will become available for your PDF document when opened in the free Adobe Reader.

1. Save form data (for a fillable PDF form only)

2. Commenting and drawing markup tools

3.Sign and existing signature field

4. Digitally sign the document anywhere on the page (not available for XML forms; only supported in Adobe Reader 8.0 or later)

*Note: Once Reader Enabled, certain functions, such as editing document content or inserting and deleting pages will be restricted.
