An Offer You Shouldn’t Refuse!
The latest version of Adobe Reader (XI) is jaw-dropping powerful—and FREE! And if you develop some simple, core PDF skills, then what? Well…
PDF Skills Can Improve Your Practice
Once you develop core PDF skills you’ll be surprised at how much more efficient you’ll become. The more you know how to use PDFs the less you’ll need to rely on paper.
Obviously, you need to develop PDF skills that replicate the simple things you can do with paper. But, with core PDF skills you’ll do things you can’t do with paper. Here are some of the core PDF skills that will streamline your law practice, and lower your stress level.
- quickly zoom in on hard to read text in PDF pages.
- rotate PDF pages that were mis-scanned, and are flipped sideways.
- search for key text in a group of PDFs (indispensable at a deposition when need to find a key document in seconds). Probably the most important PDF skill for you to develop.
- tag key passages by highlighting them so you can find them quickly the next time you open that PDF.
- place virtual sticky notes on the page of a PDF document or a Westlaw case (sort of like the marginalia you write on the edges of papers you work with, but more powerful because they’re automatically organized for you)
- Use digital stamps to mark PDFS with phrases like “DRAFT” or “CONFIDENTIAL.” Or create your own stamps with whatever text you want to use.
- digitally sign PDF documents. Ever need to quickly sign a document someone emailed you? You can, and once you learn how you’ll use this feature to make your life a whole lot easier.
- Fill out PDF forms, quickly and easily. Even type onto PDF forms that you scan into your computer. Big time saver.
