  1. Unbelievably helpful!
    I thought I was quite computer savvy, but Adobe pdf products seem to be the least computer friendly products. There is always such a learning curve. Ever try to learn Adobe Photoshop? Sheez!!

  2. i want my pdf document to convert as scanned pdf, i usually convert into image and then into pdf again. are there any short cuts in acrobat to do this. to disable text box editing, to disable type writer tool
