Practical Markup of PDFs - webinar

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is a series of three live webinar sessions.

It is suitable for anyone who has no or little experience of marking up PDFs and who lacks confidence in finding their way round a new program.

The webinar is about the use of software rather than proofreading, so level of editorial skill or experience is not a factor.

Course description

This webinar is a series of three sessions, with exercises for participants to do on their own before and after the sessions.

The goal is to familiarise participants with the various markup features of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and to give them an opportunity to practise marking up PDF files.

There will be opportunities for participants to ask the tutor questions, and handouts will be available for all participants.

Attendees will need a computer with access to the internet and the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (you don’t need the full Adobe Acrobat suite).
