How to Use Adobe Acrobat Pro Remotely

Adobe Acrobat Pro is an invaluable program for any graduate student.  The ability to merge multiple PDFs into one, make the text in a PDF “recognizable” so you can copy/paste it to another doc, or sign a document digitally are just a few of the useful tools that Adobe Pro provides.

You probably know that Adobe Pro is installed on all of the Graduate Center computers, but did you know that you can access Adobe Pro edition remotely from any computer in the world?   Furthermore, you can link your DropBox, Sharepoint, Box, or OneDrive account to the remote Adobe Acrobat Pro program to easily work with your PDFs saved in the cloud.  This blogpost will provide some basic instructions for accessing Adobe Pro remotely and linking it to your online storage system.
