The Buzzword team updated our servers today with our 14th release. And, the theme of this version is Easier Document Sharing.
We get a lot of feedback from our users, and at the top of the list has been the request to make our document sharing easier, and more public. So we’ve tackled both problems. Now it’s not only easier to share documents with teams but also publish to the whole world.
Here’s a sample (this blog entry) as a Buzzword open access document.
With the arrival of Adobe Creative Suite 4, there has been a lot of buzz in the press about Adobe services generally, and no small number of references to ConnectNow. CS4 applications now have a menu item inviting users to connect – now! – online with remote collaborators.
This is understandably an exciting prospect for creative professionals, who often work collaboratively with a few others who aren’t always in the same location. So the convenience and immediacy of screen sharing an Illustrator graphic, an InDesign layout, a Photoshop image is obvious.
We’re pleased to announce that Share, Buzzword, and ConnectNow have new Help systems. Help now includes the following additional features:
• Search (within both the product and community content). A tip in all services explains how to get the best search results.
• PDFs for each Help service. Click the link at the top right of any page to download the PDF.
• New navigation. Click links in the table of contents or within long articles to jump to specific topics. Use page forward and backward icons to page through the content. Click links in the upper left to open another Help system.
• Survey links on each page. This unique survey for each service will help Adobe improve the Help content.
Have you ever had the experience of traveling – either across town or across the country – only to realize you’d left a critical file on your computer in the office or at home? The scenario is so common that for decades an entire market segment has thrived around making data portable. Floppy disks (if you remember), Bernoulli disks, thumb drives, other external drives, now even cell phones and PDAs are used to transport files between computers. The more web-centric approach has been to email files to yourself, or get an account on Box.net or a related service – such as Acrobat.com. There are three scenarios in which Acrobat.com addresses the challenge of what could be called content mislocation.
