Adobe has begun staggered release of Acrobat X, with the first products available October 18. The upgraded family of products promise improved security with sandboxing, user collaboration, and a more integrated PDF experience.
The new Acrobat includes a new, searchable comments pane. Users can consolidate comment and markup tools, tools for starting and managing a review, and a comments list. A portfolio feature will facilitate combining different types of files with customized themes, layouts, and logos. Users will be able to automate frequently needed tasks and share those automations with others.
Reader X (scheduled for November) will offer Sticky Notes and Highlighter tools for people who want to add comments to a PDF. For more information, including a full list of products to be included in the suite, visit Adobe’s site.
