Please post the name of the program you use so a Moderator may move this message
A program would be Photoshop or InDesign or Acrobat or ???
This is for adobe PDF
Moving to a PDF forum from the Forum Comments forum..
Preferably, those who comment on the business plan documents you distribute as PDF files, don't directly edit the text in the PDF file (something that requires full Acrobat as opposed to simply the free Reader) but rather, use the annotation tools!
The annotation tools provide for highlighting, cross-outs, insertion notations, comments, etc.
And such annotations are not only noticeable within the viewing of the document itself, but are also summarized in a panel on the right side of the Acrobat / Reader window.
Anything else you are looking for?
I'm not sure that would work here, because what hey are editing is not the PDF, but the text boxes so I ask:
Please describe your receiving procedures:
(and they fill in the text box)
If I send that back next year- is there a way to see what they changed in that text box?
Thank you for your reply!
Export the data from both files into a single spreadsheet (there's a built-in command in Acrobat that does that), open in Excel, and run a comparison of both rows, highlighting any differences.
In other words, you are sending them PDF forms which you later ask them to edit.
