Shared reviews still look interesting - you be the judge

| No Comments

Again, we're talking about those things that have surfaced in recent meetings and eSeminars. Shared reviews still get people interested, the idea that everyone can start launching comments on a document at the same time is quite novel. It is also quite enjoyable to watch your document get commented on in real time as a load of colleagues start picking your work to bits. I've even seen virtual arguements start as people see each others comments and react, ahhh living my ife vicariously!

So a quick reminder on how to do a shared review for you.....

So, the PDF that you want to send/share for commenting includes the Comment & Markup toolbar and instructions in the document message bar.

1. Choose Comments > Send For Shared Review.
You can also start a shared review directly from other applications that use PDFMaker, such as Microsoft Word. Choose Adobe PDF > Convert To Adobe PDF And Send For Review. For Office 2007 applications, choose Acrobat > Create And Send For Review.

2. If prompted, specify a PDF.

3. Choose a delivery and collection method: you can use, your own internal server, or a server profile if you have already created one.Then follow the on-screen instructions.

4. On the email screen, specify the following settings as needed:
