There’s a first time for everything… I’m happy to see our first Acrobat family product on Adobe Labs! Acrobat 3D Version 8 is the next generation version incorporating the excellent technology acquired from TTF in early 2006. Take it for a drive!

Announcement: AEC Seminar Series

Clearly, I’m not an expert in the area of AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) but I wanted to alert you to this 4-part seminar series on Acrobat for industries focused on 2D and 3D designs. Each session is just 30 minutes and held via Acrobat Connect, so you can watch in the comfort of your office. In addition to these 4 30-minute segments starting tomorrow (Wed, March 28), there is a bonus 2-hour recap (in case you missed one, or you just want to do it all in one day) on May 2nd. Please see this web page for information and registration.

Acrobat 8 ACE is available now

The Acrobat 8 ACE exam is now available. For Acrobat 7 we offered two exams (Print Production and LiveCycle Designer), however, we now consolidated into one Acrobat 8 test. There will be a recertification exam (testing on just the new features, via the internet) in a few weeks, and the full exam is now available at testing centers.
For more information see – http://www.adobe.com/support/certification/ace.html.
The exam prep guide hasn’t yet been posted yet on Adobe.com so I’ve attached a copy here.
Good Luck – and let me know if you’re Certified on Acrobat 8 – I’ll promote it here.

PDF Conference Online

North American-based Acrobat & PDF Conferences have been in existence for years — I went to my very first conference in San Diego in 2000 as a brand new Acrobat Evangelist. As technology has evolved, I’ve seen a shift in the needs of the Acrobat and PDF community from large, annual events to smaller more focused activities, and now, web-based events.
On March 20 & 21, I’m participating in the first ever online PDF Conference. Entitled Optimize Your Workflow with PDF Forms, the two 3-hour sessions will be entirely on Forms – how to create forms; how to collect data; how to add JavaScript.
And the conference will wrap up with Power Panel session — a group of experts available for real-time responses to the audience questions.
I’ll be there… will you?
