Acrobat & Xcelsius – a match made in …

I could say heaven, but really its a match due to Adobe Flash. Acrobat 9 and Adobe Reader 9 both include Adobe Flash reducing the need for additional viewers.

Xcelsius Present, an SAP offering, allows you to take data from Microsoft Excel and turn it into something much more useful for presentations — charts, graphs, etc. — and with the latest version you can now export to PDF directly, allowing for rich, engaging, yet portable information.

I created a short intro to match the format of Lori’s Corner on Adobe TV, which will direct you to a demonstration I prepared showing multiple examples of how you can use the two products together.

Please let me know if you’ve created examples and I’ll post them here or on

Enjoy your summer!

    Great blog as for me. I’d like to read more concerning this matter.

    [thanks — I suggest you visit SAP’s site to get a trial and some information on Present – lori]

    I am deaf. Is there a URL to read transcripts of your videos. As an Acrobat user via the NMCI platform, I am limited to version 8.2. We are pushing to get at least Version 9 until then we have to dance with th eapplication we have available. I really forsee a HUGH future for ACROBAT in creating fillable forms. After all what is one of the greatest jobs in the government, data entry.
    If a fillable form is created then the need for additional data entry would be greatly reduced. A fillable form at that would read past filed forms and auto-complete the never changing data but also permitting edit and new information entry. taxpayer benifits and government benifits.
    [[ This one does not have a transcript, however, moving forward I am working on adding subtitles to videos. Thanks for your feedback on using forms in government. lori ]]
