Comment/Review: At the bottom of the View menu are three options that
aid the initiator of a PDF review cycle or the reviewers themselves. The
Comments options displays a submenu with over a dozen different criteria
that you can use to display reviewer comments, which are pop-up win-
dows that are attached to the current PDF document. Also available are
commands to Open and Close these pop-up windows and specify their
display in relation to the source document. Use the Show Comments List
command to open the Comments tab in a floating window that displays all
comments in a list that you can sort, search, change status, and filter.
Choose the Review Tracker command to open the Review and Comment
pane in the How To window on the right side of the document window.
Here you can display and manage comments that different reviewers have
attached to the current PDF document. You can also e-mail, remind, and
invite more reviewers to the current PDF document review cycle. See
Chapter 9 for more info on annotating PDF documents for review purposes.
As if all of these features weren’t enough for a single menu, Adobe created five
new options for changing the appearance of the Acrobat 6 window and placed
them all in the first section of the View menu. On the submenu of the Navigation
Tabs command, choose any of the 11 navigation tabs (many of which are nor-
mally displayed on the left side of the Acrobat window for viewing in the
Navigation Pane) as floating windows. Choose How To Window to display the
How To window in the right side of the Acrobat 6 window. On the Task Buttons
submenu, you can choose any or all of the six Task Buttons for display in the
toolbar area. Choose any of the 13 Acrobat 6 toolbars listed on the Toolbars
submenu for display as floating boxes. You can also hide, dock, reset, and lock
currently displayed toolbars. Finally, choose Menu Bar to hide the Acrobat
Menu bar and give yourself a tiny bit of more space for all of those toolbars.
When using the Menu Bar command to hide the Acrobat 6 Menu bar, you
must remember its keystroke shortcut F9 and press it when you want to
redisplay the Menu bar. Otherwise, you have to exit the program to get a new
Acrobat window with a Menu bar.
Delights on the Document menu
The Document menu in Acrobat 6 (shown in Figure 3-5) is another example of
Adobe’s efforts to improve the User Interface (UI). The editing command items
that affect all the pages in the PDF file that you’re editing (such as inserting,
replacing, extracting, and deleting pages, as well as commands for cropping
and rotating pages) are consolidated on the submenu of the Pages option.
Consolidating all the Page option commands on the Document menu makes
room for the following sets of options that are either new features or reshuffled/
renamed commands formerly displayed on other menus in Acrobat 5:
Pages: Contains commands on a submenu that enable you to Insert,
Extract, Replace, Delete, Crop, or Rotate pages in the current PDF docu-
ment. Choose Set Page Transitions to specify transitions between pages
when creating a PDF Presentation. See Chapter 16 for more information.
