5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, to the point 21 April 2011
By Michael P. Hawkes - Published on
Since it's rare for software to come with manuals anymore, it usually takes a lot of trial-and-error for me to get it do do what I want it to. Because of this, I often feel I'm overlooking software features that didn't come up otherwise. Getting a book like How to Do Everything with Adobe Acrobat X was a good way for me to discover what Acrobat X can do.

One of the most interesting things I learned from the book was the Stamp tool. This is a digital equivalent of a rubber stamps that were used on paper documents. It's one of those seemingly minor things that gets used in offices around the world, and Adobe was able to turn it into a tool in Acrobat. The book teaches about how to apply, edit, and delete Stamps, as well as creating custom ones.

Another cool tool is the Email-based Review tool. For authors and publishers, this somewhat automates the practice of sending a document out to be reviewed. I can imagine peer-reviewed journals using this in their process. Masters and doctoral candidates can use this when creating their dissertations. The person reviewing the document doesn't need to have Acrobat, but does need to have Adobe Reader.

The book is easy to read and understand - informative without being boring. I think the people who will get the most out of it are those who use Acrobat, but not on a regular basis. After learning how to do something, then forgetting it due to a lack of practice, this book can serve as a set of useful reminders.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inadequate 15 July 2011
By Diego Banducci - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Assigned to review 90,000 pages of Acrobat document in connection with a lawsuit, I was particularly interested in Acrobat's Search feature. Given the size of the project (90,000 pages), I bought three books, seeking to familiarize myself with Acrobat's search capabilities:

1. This book, How to Do Everything Adobe Acrobat X

2. Adobe Acrobat X Classroom in a Book; and

3. Adobe Acrobat X PDF Bible.

The first book (this one) proved to have virtually nothing on the Search featue. Afer looking through it, it appeared to me to be generally useless.

The second book provided a nice overview of Acrobat X for the average user, including the Search feature. It is clearly written and would appear to be the best choice for the average user.

The third book suffrs from organizational problems, but it has a good index and I was ultimarely able to answer all my questions, although slowly. It is the book of choice for users who anticipate calling on all of Acrobat's many features.

This book answered the questions I had in using the new features of Adobe Acrobat X. If you are upgrading to Acrobat X, you will need help with the newest features, such as inserting videos into your PDF files. Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Adobe Acrobat X Standard Users beware 9 Sep 2012
By Publisher - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This manual is written for Adobe Acrobat X PRO users. If you have purchased Adobe Acrobat X STANDARD version, then this is NOT the book for you. The description is so vague and the title is somewhat misleading so that it would be easy to order this book in error.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acrobat X 26 Jun 2011
By W. O. Long - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a real helper. I want from Acrobat Ver 5 to Ver X and was lost. The user interface had changed a lot. You can get answers to your Ver X questions elsewhere, but the transistion is faster if you buy and read the book.
