How to use Adobe Reader for proofreading

Reply Wed 10 Apr, 2013 07:53 pm
I have Adobe Reader 10.1.4 but I cannot figure out how to use it in order to proofread an article. When I worked with a publishing company, they gave me a password to use it. But what do I do as a freelancer? I know I have used its proofreading marks before but I can't get into it now. How does one use Adobe Reader for proofreading? I might also add that I have a MacBook Pro new laptop, not a PC.

I don't know. Are you sure you didn't have Adobe Acrobat (not Reader) before?

Exactly...Reader has a different functionality than does Acrobat. With Acrobat you could edit...but not so with Reader. That's the way I understand the product.

try using Foxit Editor, it is compatible with Adobe and it is free. i used to perform many proofreading tasks with it without any problems. Good luck

The Foxit Editor appears to be "free to try", but includes a watermark on the end product unless you purchase the software.

Hi cthoppe10,
You should use Adobe Acrobat instead of Adobe Reader.
