Create a Shared PDF Review Using Acrobat.com for Easy Managing and Review-Tracking

Article Description

Acrobat X has a lot of ways of sharing PDF files with others so that they can review and comment on the file if necessary. While those services are very useful, Adobe expert Brian Wood focuses on how you can access Acrobat.com from within Adobe Acrobat X to share a PDF with others as a shared PDF review. He details how you can send your document for review, track the review, and review and comment on the PDF.

Lastly, you will take a look at some of the preferences associated with Acrobat.com reviews.

  1. Open the Tracker by clicking Track Reviews in the Comment task pane or using one of the other methods mentioned earlier.
  2. Make sure that Latest Updates is selected on the left side of the Tracker, and notice the options for turning off the notification icon in the system tray (Windows only) and turning off notification inside of Acrobat. Turning the notification off in Acrobat will disable the dark gray message box that appears in the upper–right corner of the PDF. At any point, you can turn them off and on within the Tracker (see Figure 24).
