TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
You don't need to get cloud accounts to use Acrobat X Pro review tools.
You can do a shared review by putting the comment-enabled PDF on a
file server or Sharepoint server on your network, or a non-shared
review by sending copies around by email or whatever, just as in
version 9. Reviewers can use Reader 9 or X.
As I recall, the UI for enabling comments in Reader has changed and is
somewhat confusing. I only installed a trial version to see if X fixed
a bug in 9 so I don't have it here to check the sequence of commands.
