Acrobat 9 Tip: Enable Commenting in Any PDF

Here’s an easy way to let your clients mark up your QuarkXPress documents, even if they don’t have QuarkXPress: just export it in PDF format by choosing File> Export> Layout as PDF.

Then open the PDF file in Acrobat 9 and select the “Enable for Commenting and Analysis in Adobe Reader” command from the Comments menu, and then re-save the PDF before sending it out.

Your clients can then use the free Adobe Reader 9 and have access to the comment, markup, and analysis tools for your PDF.
