The company is also making it easier to get to those features from your browser address bar. Back in July, Adobe started using Google’s .new domain to create handy shortcuts for quick access to specific Acrobat web features. With today’s update, the company is adding several new shortcuts, including one you can use to sign a PDF.
As for why it took Adobe so long to get to this point, the company told TechCrunch some technical challenges delayed the rollout of today’s new features. In particular, fonts made it tricky to make text and image editing available online. “We could have done it earlier, but it wouldn’t have been up to the standards of being fast, nimble and quality,” Adobe vice-president for Document Cloud told the publication. Late or not, if you use Acrobat web on a daily basis, you’re probably happy to finally have access to some new tools.
