I hope that in this course you've learned some useful new skills that you can put to work right-away. But if you want to know more about Acrobat, here are some great additional resources. Anne-Marie Concepcion's Acrobat X Essential Training on lynda.com is a great way to get started if you're new to Acrobat. And even if you've been using it for a while, I promise you, you'll pick up some new tips and tricks. And then to build on that, Acrobat X: Tips and Tricks. Anne-Marie has uncovered a lot of things that are sort of hidden in the interface that can make life easier. You may find that you've been doing things the long way around and she can show you a much faster way to do it.
There are a bunch of really good resources available on the Adobe website as well. If you're more interested in security and digital signatures, you'll find some developer-level resources. Don't let that scare you, there are also some user-level resources on this site and they are available for Acrobat 8, Acrobat 9, and Acrobat X. So if you know somebody that's using older versions, there's still some information available here for them. If things aren't going right, if you have questions, the Adobe Forums are a great resource for all their programs, but particularly for features in Acrobat.
People in the forums are perfectly willing to help. Some are just users that use it all the time, some are Adobe people. But they're always very willing to help you when you have questions and problems. Lori DeFurio is a PDF evangelist. So she covers the depth and breadth of Acrobat. News about Acrobat, other programs that affect Acrobat and work well with Acrobat, how Acrobat is being used in the marketplace, because it's used in so many environments in so many different ways. The acrobatusers.com site is another great resource.
There are some tutorials available. It's another opportunity to ask questions and get somebody to help you when you're having problems. And it's just a great resource for finding out general fact about Acrobat, how people use it, things to look out for, and things to help you work better. And if you're in the legal environment, Acrobat for Legal Professionals is a great resource. It's Rick Borstein's blog and there is a lot of information in there that's particular to a legal environment, but it's not just limited to that. You're going to find stuff that will help you out even if you're not in a legal environment.
