This Week in Acrobat – 06-15-09 through 06-19-09


I’m going to try something new. I’ve been using Twitter quite a bit in order to share Acrobat news and tips with users as well as to listen to what users are saying about Acrobat. So I thought it may be interesting if I summarized for you once a week some of what’s been shared and talked about.

Since this is my first attempt at this, I’d very much appreciate any comments regarding if you find this summary useful.
