Does anyone have recommendations on sharing the PDF containing my stamps with others?
Stamps are actually nothing more than PDF files in a specific format, located in a specific folder. If you copy them from one computer to the other and place them in the same folder then they should appear in Acrobat (or Reader) and work just like before.
What's your version of Acrobat and OS?
Running on Adobe Acrobat XI on Windows 7.
I'd thought for a bit that it would be that easy as well; however, if you drag a PDF containing your stamps into either of Acrobat's stamp folders (The user folder for custom stamps, or the ENU(English) folder in the Program Files folder for built-in stamps) then Adobe won't recognize the addition as a new group of Stamps.
If you go into a file Adobe recognizes as a PDF contain stamps, then replace one of the PDF pages with a new page/new stamp, Adobe will return an error when you try to access the stamp directory you just modified.
So yeah, I think I've tried what I think you're suggesting to no avail
In my experience it does recognize and add a new group to the Stamp tool when you install a stamp file in this file... But you must use the user folder, which in your case should be:
C:\Users\<Your user name>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\11.0\Stamps
Whatever the reason may be, that doesn't work for me. Thanks for the suggestion though.
The new version
Could you be more specific?
But in general, nothing has changed with stamps in a long time. They are the same in the new version as in the old. The only thing that has changed is the location of the stamp tools on the Acrobat user interface.
If you created your stamps by modifying the dynamic stamps that ship with Acrobat, then you will need to rename the individual stamps in oder to copy your modified stamp file to other machines. Each stamp on your system must have a unique name or else there will be a conflict. If you need help renaming the stamps, post again.
As per your suggestion: Here I am, posting again.
Digressing: Could you elaborate? Thank you.
To change the stamp name, you have to change the template name that's used for each stamp page in the stamp file. Here's a tutorial that discusses this in detail: Creating a PDF Stamp File from Scratch - KHKonsulting LLC
You have to change the internal name to something that will be unique on each users system, which is easy to do. I'll often include a date and version number in the stamp name. Here's an example: #Clientname_AFL_Cursor_20160428-001=AFL
