Managing, Annotating and Searching PDF Packages

In my last article Search and Combine using PDF Packages, I discussed how to search a large number of documents and combine the resulting documents into a PDF package.

The result was a PDF package containing a target list of documents for further investigation.

With this “hot” set of documents in hand, it is time to carefully review them. You want to find out:

        • Who is mentioned in the documents
        • The issue(s) associated with the documents
        • When actions took place

        Once you have all of this information, what do you think about what you found? How will you make your case?

        In this article, you’ll learn how to:

        1. Add Notes or Annotations to a document in the package
        2. Add or delete documents in the package
        3. Search within a package, including your annotations

        Read on to see how Acrobat can be used as a case analysis tool in this second article of the series.

        Email has become a primary pathway that firms use to communicate with clients and the courts. Increasingly, email is growing as a source of discovery data.

        Properly managing and archiving email is a critical skill for attorneys. Large firms may use specialized archiving products which can cost in the six figures. Smaller firms need to take a more cost effective and proactive approach.
