Additional new features
Acrobat 7.0 includes many other new and enhanced features to improve how you work:
You can easily search a folder of Adobe PDF files for a particular word or phrase, whether
that folder is on your computer or on your network. Acrobat no longer requires that
documents be indexed first. You can search PDF files on the Internet. In addition, you can
now search more parts of your Adobe PDF files, including bookmarks, comments,
attachments, document structure, object data, and document metadata.
Read forms out loud
You can use the Read Out Loud feature to read form fields out loud as you tab to them.
Recover your work
The Autosave feature guards against losing your work in case of a power failure by
incrementally saving file changes to a specified location. The original file is not modified.
View 3D content
The 3D plug-in allows you to view and navigate embedded 3D content in PDF files. Now,
you can experience high-quality 3D environments with realistic lighting and motion.
Acrobat 7.0 Professional is required to embed 3D content.
Locate and review PDF files
Organizer allows you to quickly locate open PDF files, PDF files that you have used
recently, and PDF files that you have stored in a Favorites folder. You can look at PDF
page thumbnails to quickly find the right file.
Create archivable files
Acrobat supports the creation and validation of PDF/A files.
Scan paper documents into searchable PDF files
During scanning, you can create a searchable Adobe PDF file by applying optical
character recognition (OCR) while scanning.
Look at different pages of the same file at the same time
Acrobat allows you to create multiple windows for the same document by using the New
Subscribe to digital periodicals and journals
Periodicals can be obtained in the same way as Digital Editions. When you subscribe to a
digital periodical and download the first issue, Acrobat asks you how often to check for
the availability of subsequent issues.
Keep Acrobat up to date
Depending on your Updates preference settings, Acrobat downloads updates in the
background, even while other web transactions are occurring. In Windows, you can
minimize the download dialog box to a status bar icon. When all the components are
downloaded, a dialog box lets you choose which updates to install.
View PDF documents in the browser (Mac OS)
Acrobat works automatically with Safari to make viewing Adobe PDF documents on the
web easy. The first time you open Acrobat, your system automatically is configured to use
Acrobat to open PDF files in your browser. If you use Windows, you can still configure
Internet Explorer to open PDF files.
