Scanning

Need to digitize an image or document? Learn which scanner is best for you and how to use it.

Getting Started

  • If you haven't already, open Adobe Acrobat DC located in the Adobe Folder on the Desktop.

Cropping Pages

  • To crop a document in Adobe Acrobat DC, click on the Edit PDF button on the right side of the window. Then select Crop Pages on the top bar of the window. Click and drag a box over the area you would like to crop. When the area is covered, press the Enter button on the keyboard. A window will pop up. Select OK.

  • If you wish to apply the same crop to multiple pages, you can do so in the pop up window by changing Page Range. You can also adjust your crop in Page Boxes - Margin Controls.

Combining PDFs

  • To combine PDFs, go to File on the top of the window, select Create, then select Combine Files into a Single PDF. In the new window, use the Add Files dropdown and add the files you would like to combine. When you have added all of your documents, press the Combine Files button in the bottom right corner.

Opening the Tools

Rotating Pages

  • To rotate a page, you will need the Page Thumbnails Tab up on the left side of the screen. To make this visible, move your mouse to the left side of the screen and select the grey arrow that appears. Then select the first icon on the ribbon.
  • To rotate an image, select it in this tab and select the rotate button in the direction you would like it to go. You can also delete pages in this tab by selecting the page then selecting the trash icon.

Adding Text & Images

  • To add a text either select the Edit PDF button on the right side of the window, or right click on the document and select Add Text. If you click the Edit PDF button, you will need to select the Add Text button on the ribbon that appears at the top of the window. Select where you would like to place your text and you can type what you would like. The same process can be done for adding images. Set the pictures and text by clicking off the picture/text box. 
  • The image below displays both how to add text and add images.

You can edit the text or picture placement more after you click off by clicking the EDIT button in the EDIT header.

Saving PDF

  • After you finish editing the PDF, you can save it to a new file by clicking on File in the menu bar, then go to Save As. Name the file and save it in the folder you have created that's named after your Case ID (ex - abc123) in D: Drive Storage folder.
  • If you haven't yet created the folder, in the D: Drive Storage folder, press "New Folder" in the top right and name it after your Case ID (ex - abc123).
