Adobe Customization Wizard XI update now available

You’re an IT professional. You’re responsible for ensuring software deployment happens correctly, securely and consistently. You may be responsible for configuring and then locking down what users can do on their machines. You may even be responsible for making sure the boss can update their “I like to appear in the background on TV” fan page wherever they may be. If all that sounds like your area of expertise (although you might want to find someone else to help with your bosses online and public habits), and if Adobe Reader XI and Acrobat XI are on the list of software applications that need to be installed on several (sometimes tens of thousands) desktops, then you need to get to know the Adobe Customization Wizard. The Customization Wizard allows you to configure and lockdown the Adobe Reader XI* and Acrobat XI* installation options prior to deployment via a simple UI. Sure, you could tweak installation tables and plist files, but this free tool makes all that work so much easier and faster. What kind of options are we talking about here? Not just things like pre-accepting the license agreement, or which features get installed, but also powerful controls such as configuring and locking down the many application security controls, tweaking preferences, including custom Actions and Tool Sets, determining how the software should be updated, and much more.

Adobe Customization Wizard for Adobe Reader and Acrobat 11

 

You can get all the juicy details on the Customization Wizard from the documentation that is part of the Enterprise Toolkit for the Acrobat family. Speaking of updates, the Customization Wizard was just updated itself with numerous bug fixes for installation configuration to help deployments go that much smoother. You can download the Customization Wizard for Windows and Mac OS X. If you have any questions about Customization Wizard, then feel free to send us a comment here or better yet, post to the Acrobat and Reader Enterprise Deployment forum. * Customization Wizard is also available for Adobe Reader X and Acrobat X too. If you need to configure those versions, please use the version of Customization Wizard specific to that Acrobat family version.

Acrobat.com Introduces Simple Sharing

One of our favorite things about storing documents in Acrobat.com is how easy they are to access from any device. Whether you’re at your desk, using your tablet in a waiting room somewhere, or trying to teach your mother how to use her computer, you can find your files waiting for you in the cloud. Now, we’re extending that access for you: if you want others to be able to access certain files you’ve uploaded to Acrobat.com (from wherever they are), you can use the new sharing feature we’ve added. Just select the file or files that you want to publicize and click the “Share” button in the toolbar.

Click the Share button

Once you’ve done that, you can share that document’s publicly-accessible link with anyone you’d like to show the file to. Email it directly from the Share dialog box, post it to Facebook, or put it on your website; that link can get around however you choose to share it. If you want to unshare the file, simply toggle the switch from “Public” to “Unshare File”; it will then be marked as private so only you can view it.

 Sounds good, right? Just log in or create a free Acrobat.com account to get started.
