    I found this course helpful to understand the power of Adobe Acrobat that I have used many times as a content consumer but not as a content creator.

    I noticed there are two editing errors:
    1.At the start of “Adding Articles”, there is a long pause and then RC introduces the video twice i.e. starts it again. It needs trimming from the beginning to the correct “In” point.
    2. Similarly at the start of “Creating a Form”, RC introduces it as Indesign and then loops back to restart it correctly referring to Acrobat. The intro referencing Indesign belongs in the “Out-takes”

    The only other thing I would add to the course is to extend the section on Forms to cover the typical use case of distributing to end users. To be more specific about the security settings that one should use for forms to be distributed to other people (RC mentioned it in passing in the Securing Your Document” but should be more explicit. And also a comment that loops back to whether a person with only Reader can fill in the forms and print or save the results and any gotchas. I know I can experiment with that, but it would be more complete to add one more section to the course to cover that off.
