Portable Documents Format (.pdf) Documents
people and organizations are using Portable Documents Format or .pdf
files these days. Perhaps you received a file with the .pdf extension
but were not able to open it. If this was the case, you may be in need
of the free Adobe Reader software. You can get it at: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.
.pdf files are normal files that have been converted into a graphic-like
file that anyone can read using the Adobe
Reader. For example, perhaps someone has sent you a wonderful Volunteer
Brochure that was created in MS Publisher. You would need to have MS
Publisher to read it. And you would likely have the ability to modify
and change it. However, if they used Adobe Acrobat to convert the brochure
into a .pdf file, they retain the look of the brochure and retain the
ability of your being able to view it and print it as they intended
it to be used.
If this sounds like something you would like to be able to do, then look into purchasing Adobe Acrobat. It may just open a world of electronic marketing for you. Check it out here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/main.html.
Tip: Searching with Quotation Marks
using more than one word during an Internet Search, try using quotation
marks (" ") around your group of words or phrases.
For example: If you used the words Virtual Volunteers you would get back search results that included just Virtual and Volunteers. However, if you put quotation marks around the words, as in "Virtual Volunteers," you would only get search results that included the words Virtual Volunteers next to each other.
Check it out for yourself using the Google Search on the Volunteer Today site.
Do you know of a better way? Or do you have any questions?
