  6. You’ll often find valuable information in a PDF (Acrobat) file and want to use it somewhere else. You can use Acrobat Reader to copy text from a PDF file and place it in another application.
  7. PDF (Acrobat) files are a great way to make sure documents are viewed with the correct layout and fonts – even when the recipients don’t have the program you used to create the documents. PDFs are read-only – viewers can’t change them.
