This lesson was written for Acrobat 6.0 Standard or Professional. However, you should easily be able to duplicate the following steps in later versions of Acrobat. You must have the software installed on your computer to create a PDF file. Adobe Reader®, which is freely available for downloading from the Adobe Web site, can only be used to read a PDF file. You cannot use it to create a PDF file. The tutorial consisits of five lessons, each containing exercises to help you complete specific tasks. Each exercise links to a corresponding demo movie so you can see the task performed.”
