PDF tips

by Ekaterini Papadopoulou on 2020-10-20T15:52:22-07:00 | Comments

We've had a few questions about PDFs...

Do you need to submit your document as a PDF for class or a conference?

Simply "Save as"  and select  "PDF" - this will allow you to save your files in a way that allow them to be easily viewed by others who perhaps don't have the same software.  
*PDF stands for Portable Document Format

You can also use Adobe Reader (Free!) to fill and sign most PDF forms.  Use the tool bar at the top to add a Text Box that will allow you to add content to a PDF form.


Use the "Sign" option to upload a copy of your signature and then you can add it to documents and forms.

TIP: you can sign your name on plain paper and take a photo with your phone to get a good signature image (I'm not using my real signature on this page incase anyone screen grabbed it for nefarious purposes....)
