RE: Electronic and Paper File Systems - Adobe Acrobat

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The version I purchased from Hewlett Packard only came with two chapters
from the Classroom in a Book series - one on creating Links and the other on
creating Buttons. I noticed that you can buy the book for $40.00 from Adobe
and maybe this is a good investment.
However, I am still curious as to how Acrobat or any of the programs that
came with it can help organize a paperless office.
Please elaborate if you can. Possibly you can suggest another piece of
software that provides this type of interface. BTW, I discovered a very nice
viewer that I will be reviewing in the next issue of Online from Cimmetry
Software called AutoVue Professional. AVP provides a means to view and track
over 200 document formats including PDF, DWG (through release 14),
Microstation and a few other CAD programs as well as many Windows based
applications. The price is a bit steep ($500.00) but it looks to be
excellent. I forgot to add that it provide total annotation features and
integrates will into Netscape and IE.

Doesn't Acrobat do this management trick for you? If you purchased 3.01 and
a copy of the classroom in a book series for Acrobat, check out page 12 for
quick overview.

I too am interested in archiving docs and have been "cracking the book" of
to get up to speed.
