I exported a document from InDesign to Acrobat. I then used Acrobat and did Save As Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable Commenting and Measuring. But when I open the document in Reader DC, I still can't find any commenting tools except for the sticky note and highlighter. There's a Document Extensions note that says "You can add comments and markups to this document," but I can't find any way to do that. I've looked through all the menu options...what am I missing...??
Please don't point out that I can mark up a document using Acrobat; I know that. I'm trying to create a "How-to" document for users who only have Reader. I know it used to be possible for users with Reader to comment in a PDF, but I don't see that anymore.
What happens when you save the file without Reader Extension?
Hi Bernd - When I save it without it, I don't see the "document extensions" note, but otherwise it looks the same.
I know it used to be possible for users with Reader to comment in a PDF.
You need to open the Comment toobar to see the other tools in Reader DC: Tools > Comments. Here is Help:
If your users have Reader XI or DC, you no longer need to enable commenting. It is now part of Reader.
Hi Jane - There's no top menu option for Tools. Under the View menu, there's a Tools option, but the only thing there is "Send for review."
Yes there is no top menu for tools any more. Completely redesigned, several times, no use trying to follow old instructions. Explore. Use the Tools tab.
Hi Test Screen Name - I did explore; I looked under every menu option before posting the original question. There is no Tools tab.
It is right of Home:
There is no Tools tab:
Repair the installation of Acrobat Reader DC.
Ah ha! That did it; now there's a Tools tab. Thanks!
How do I repair the installation of Acrobat?
See if there is a REPAIR option in the HELP menu.
