Updating a PDF document: InDesign Secrets

Update a PDF without Acrobat

Explore InDesign Secrets at lynda.com.

Many PDFs that begin their lives in Adobe InDesign are later sent to Acrobat, where they are given calculated fields, buttons, bookmarks, and other special features. If, at some point in the document’s life cycle, you need to update the text, an image, or another design element in InDesign—do you have to rebuild the document in Acrobat all over again? Not if you know this week’s InDesign secret! Anne-Marie Concepciòn introduces a little known Acrobat command called Replace, which allows you to refresh the design layer without messing with the interactive features. Learn how this trick works in this week’s free video.
