Hi there and welcome
You could just do all of this within Microsoft Word and then save the word file as a PDF file...
Then you would not need to purchase Acrobat Pro.
Do you already have Word?
Ok, I was just looking to save you money.
Then to work with and edit the documents, you would need Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. The only step not covered is Step 4. This it will not do (the Zipping of the file).
You would do this within Windows itself by right clicking it (and any additional documents) then selecting Send To -> Compressed (Zipped) file which will Zip them into 1 file which you can then send of to a recipient
Is there anything else you would need information on?
You would insert a link to the file for this
Choose Tools > Edit PDF > Link > Add or Edit
Then choose to Open File and select the File
But this wont work if your sending it to other people, as its going to lose the path to the file.
In this instance, then only option is to either Host the file online eg: Via your website and then select Open A Web Page and set the address of the hosted PDF as then its always the same path
Or insert the actual PDF's Content into this PDF which makes it all one document.
ok, easiest is for you to look at step 5 here which shows this
With screen shots on how to add it so you can follow it. Let me know how you go with this.
The attach you cannot reference from within the same file, but it sounds like the inserting of the file (at the end for example) will be the best option.
Let me know how you go please.
I have marked this question to never close, so you can just return here and post a message like you are doing now. No time limit on this. This is no problem.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
and if it does not, let me know where you got stuck please
(ratings you do via the actual stars at the top then submit)
No it wont, but you are aware on how to zip on a mac correct as I believe this is what you said.
If not I can tell you how.
yes, this is what I explained before. Unless you host the file, you cannot give the link as the path changes, so why you would then inset the page itself.
You mean a link to another section within the same document?
yes... and this is by linking to the document.
You are creating a link to this other document within this one.
Or you insert the actual document within it.
A spot that when they click on it will open Document 2 correct
and the only way is to link to it or insert the file into it. The two methods I have described.
Attaching is linking.
yes there is.
I will again go over how you can do this.
These are the only ways it gets done. Either linked or inserted. It is the only way it can work.
You cannot link to a internal file list, it only will link to an external file.
I would make the document part of the main one, but separate it with 2 pages.
Else you would need to host the file, which is how it is done by compaines eg: for PDF user manuals with links to the service documents.
But it has to be one of these two options when using Acrobat
Like I said before, there is no time limit on this question, so any follow ups, just let me know here please.
