It's easy to learn how to create PDF Actions that automate PDF. In Acrobat, I'll select tools, then the action wizard. Then I'll see a list of built-in actions available for me. In this case, we'll use prepare for distribution. I can see all the steps of the action with instructions. And I can add additional files if necessary. To run the action, I'll click start and Acrobat will lead me through the tasks that I need to prepare this document. First, I'll remove hidden information. Next, I'll add a watermark. Next, I'll add a header and a footer. Finally, Acrobat will prompt me to save the file. And the action is complete.Acrobat XI Pro helps you prepare your documents consistently and quickly.
