Most lawyers now encounter PDFs, and many own Adobe Acrobat--the most widely used software for working with PDFs. But most attorneys are confused about how to work efficiently with PDFs. Adobe Acrobat in One Hour for Lawyers
is written for lawyers and legal professionals who want to be more organized by making better use of PDFs. By reading this book you'll learn to use Acrobat to:
- View PDFs the way you find most comfortable (zoom, rotate, etc.)
- Create searchable PDFs from Microsoft Word or Outlook, or other programs.
- Rearrange pages, tag key passages, and even edit text.
- Create a signature stamp so you can "sign" documents without printing.
- Redact sensitive or confidential information from PDFs, reliably and easily.
- Bates-stamp PDFs with optimal settings, and save those settings for later use.
- Turn scanned PDFs into searchable ones, quickly and reliably.
- Be prepared for PDF/A requirements, which will soon apply in all federal courts.
- Use powerful keyboard shortcuts for the actions you most often need.
- Adjust the preference settings that will help you get the most out of Acrobat editions X and XI, the latest releases of the software.
Praise for Adobe Acrobat in One Hour for Lawyers
"If you feel that you ought to know much more about Acrobat than you currently do, you’ll benefit greatly from reading Adobe Acrobat in One Hour for Lawyers by Ernie Svenson. As you might expect, 'Ernie the Attorney' (his nickname/moniker for years), takes you through the basics of Acrobat. He’s been teaching Acrobat to lawyers – and blogging about Acrobat - for many years. But he does move you easily into more advanced skills. This is a great way, in a short amount of time, to ramp up your knowledge of software that is essential in any law office. We’ve been recommending this book to audiences since its publication – you would be hard pressed to find a better way to spend your money – and it’s less than $50!"--Sharon D. Nelson, Esq. and John W. Simek, co-authors of The 2014 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide
"This easily comprehensible short book unlocks some of the power of Acrobat that I had no idea existed. . . . Every lawyer who handles large PDF documents (and who doesn't?) should have a copy of this book somewhere in his or her office. Whether the lawyer uses it or some other person in the office does, Adobe Acrobat in One Hour for Lawyers is bound to increase the productivity of anyone who wrestles with PDFs."--William T. Allison
