Acrobat DC New Feature: Tools Search

Acrobat, like other business software, has a lot of tools. In most software, you have to know where to access a tool to use it. That can be frustrating if you don’t use the tool frequently.

One of my favorite features of Acrobat DC is Tools Search. Now, you can type in the name of the tool to find it.

Here’s how it works . . .

Let’s say you have some confidential information in a document which needs to be redacted (permanently removed).

Redaction tools aren’t part of the default panels in Acrobat DC, and maybe you don’t use them very frequently.

Just click your cursor in the Search Tools field:

000_ui_start

 

Then, type a few characters of the tool name. Boom! You just found the tool!

001_search_entered

 

Even though I used Acrobat all the time, I still will search for tools from time to time. It’s fast and it means I don’t have to remember where a tool is to actually use it.
