Digital publishing articles
Following is a list of published articles about digital publishing.
- Acrobat Reader
Acrobat Reader is a multiplatform application for viewing and printing PDF files. The Reader has no tools for manipulating the content of a file, although there is a preference selection for altering the standard display font for documents that do not have embedded fonts.
