About The Class

Learn how to create interactive PDFs with Jason Hoppe in this intensive Adobe Acrobat tutorial. Jason will show you the basics of using Adobe Acrobat to create PDFs, then delves into even more advanced techniques: creating forms, using calculations and JavaScript, distributing PDFs, creating hyperlinks and bookmarks, including and embedding files in your PDF, and much more! Beyond Acrobat, Jason also shows you how to use InDesign, Photoshop, and other software to enhance your PDFs. PDFs aren't just text, and Jason Hoppe is the one to show you how to use them to their full potential.

    I am sure this was a really great class in 2015 today, mid 2017, the course is really outdated. There was no obvious reference that the course explains Adobe Acrobat version 10 which came out in 2017. We have moved on quite a few versions and the change is significant. So very disappointed that the course hasn't been updated. if it was up to date it would have been great.

    Great class. Was working on a project which included building a company folder that will be spread digitally. Also built some forms along the way. The teachings from Mr. Hoppe helped me a lot. A big thank you to the Creativelive team.
