Join David Blatner for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding final touches in Acrobat Pro, part of InDesign: Print PDFs.
…This is the PDF that exported from InDesign at the end of the last movie.…It looks pretty good, but I want to make it great.…So, I'm going to add a few little final touches here on Acrobat Pro, and these…are changes that you'd probably never do for…a PDF going to press, like a commercial printer.…But I almost always do them for hybrid PDF's…that people are going to be viewing on screen.…So first I'll go to the File menu and choose Properties.…Here in the description tab of the Document Properties…dialog box, I can give this PDF a Title.…
For example, I'll call this Reue Magazine.…I could add an Author and a Subject.…Even Keywords separated by commas if I wanted to.…That's good for website SEO, so that if I put…it on a website, Google or Bing can find it.…Here in Security tab, I could add or change the security…settings of this PDF, if hadn't already done that in InDesign.…But the main thing I want to change is found over here in the Initial View tab.…I really wish I could set these things up in InDesign.…
