With the all-new Compare Files tool, you can now quickly and accurately detect differences between two versions of a PDF file. Compare two versions of a document to detect all text and image changes. View an easy-to-scan results summary that provides an overview of file differences.
Easily move through the document to review each difference using a side-by-side or single-page view. This tool was previously named Compare Documents. Acrobat displays the results in a new document that provides an easy-to-scan summary of all file differences. Opening multiple PDFs in the same session now opens the PDFs as tabs in the same application window. You can switch among the tabs at the top of the window by clicking on the file name shown in each tab. A previous button and a next button are displayed at the top right to let you navigate through document tabs when the number of open PDFs no longer fit in the document view. Acrobat auto resizes tabs when the documents don’t fit in the view window.
By default, the tabbed interface is ON. Acrobat now shows bulleted list and numbered list controls in the Edit PDF Format panel. You can now create new bulleted and numbered lists, convert an existing paragraph a bulleted or numbered list, revert lists to regular text, and convert lists from one list type to another. Acrobat now also detects additional bulleted and numbered list types in your document, if any, and shows them at the bottom of the related list pull-down menu, separated by a thin gray line. You can also use your keyboard to add a list item. The Scanner tool now has a new simplified interface.
The new interface makes it easy for you to quickly scan paper documents to PDFs using the default settings or a preset option. It also makes it easy for you to fine-tune scan settings from the same interface using radio buttons, a gear icon, or both. The all-new Certificates tool makes it easier than ever to digitally sign, certify, and verify documents with a digital ID. Find your existing digital IDs from files, smart cards, or USB token devices and configure them easily for signing. Add valuable information to your signatures, such as a logo, date, location, or signing reason.
Draw your signature or upload a scanned image to add it to your digital identity. You can use existing digital IDs or create new ones. Based on whether a digital ID is available on your machine or not, you will see one of the two workflows described below.
