Review and Commenting eSeminar Recording Posted

Last Wednesday, March 4, I had the pleasure of giving a one hour eSeminar on Review and Commenting with Acrobat 9. The recording of that eSeminar is now available for you to view at any time.


Thanks to everyone that attended from all over the globe. I hope you found the information useful. If you asked a question live, but were not able to get a response, you can post your question(s) to the Review and Commenting forum on

For those of you that were not able to make it, here are some of the things that I covered:

  • Initiating an email-based document review
  • Importing comments
  • Initiating a Shared Review using an internal server (including Microsoft SharePoint) or
  • Tips on using the commenting tools

As it happens with these live events, there is never enough time to cover everything I would like to. So one of my goals for this blog is to cover the things I did not get to in the live event. So, please do check out the recording, then check back here or in your favorite newsreader for additional how-to’s and tips. Let me know what you thought of the event, and what else you would like to see or find about.
