The portable document format commonly known as the “PDF” is nearly 25 years old and growing in business use each year. The PDF can dramatically boost law office productivity. Its ability to merge files containing various file formats into a single document means all parties can easily read and transmit the PDF, regardless of whether or not the reader’s system has the authoring programs.

Adobe Systems’ co-founder John Warnock developed the PDF in 1992 and Adobe describes it as “a file format used to present and exchange documents reliably, independent of software, hardware, or operating system.” In the past quarter-century, the versatility and utility of PDFs have expanded dramatically. PDFs now include complex features, such as links and buttons, form fields, audio, video, and business logic. Today’s legal professionals can leverage unique PDF functionality to supercharge their productivity and efficiency.
