In my first post of the “marking up PDFs” series, I showed the many uses of stamps in Acrobat.
Setting favourite stamps makes them available in above the other categories when you click the stamp icon.
Watch this screencast to learn how to make a custom (proofreader’s) stamp and how to import stamps into the free Adobe (Acrobat) Reader XI. (Tweet this.)
If you don’t want to make your own stamps, download sets from sources such as:
- The international copyediting-L (a.k.a. the celery). Go to the “Resources” tab, then look under the Miscellaneous heading for Diana Stirling’s zip of editing marks in red and black.
- Louise Harnby’s set of the UK-standard marks.
- Cobweb designs’ sets in multiple colours (plus French!).
