Adobe Acrobat is a powerful and widely used piece of software that allows lawyers and legal professionals to manipulate PDFs in useful ways-ones that are of practical use in any law office that uses computers. This Basic session will introduce you to this powerful tool and help you build your knowledge to go forward to using more advanced and powerful features of the software.

You will learn how to:
  • Understand the functionality of the different versions of Acrobat (Reader, Standard, Professional)
  • Tell the difference between different types of PDF documents (image only or image-on-text)
  • Create a PDF from a variety of sources (scans, software applications, print to PDF) and how the resulting documents differ
