Acrobat 9 - more reasons to love this cool program

Layers Magazine (part of the NAPP empire) has a great little heads-up buried within its many pages. Acrobat 9 has added some improvements to the existing Output Preview features (Advanced>Print Production>Output Preview) as well as some new additions.

Acrobat is increasingly being used as an alternative to PowerPoint for presentations in court (as well as Flash). I love it for making enlargements for court exhibits (combined with a RIP). The improvements to the Output Preview functionality will definitely help. Adobe keeps making this product better with each new release.

Let's not forget the addition of ConnectNow - an offshoot of Connect and part of the new ConnectNow (File>Collaborate>Share My Screen) is a free service that lets two others look at your screen or even take over your computer (or the other way around - with the proper permissions of course). It's a great tool for training.
