[NPL] Adobe Announces Acrobat 4.0

For Immediate Release

Adobe Acrobat 4.0 Software Bridges the Gaps in Today's Office
Document Workflows

New Version Enables Easy Re-use of Text, Table and Graphics Within
PDF Files, Rich Annotation and Security, and Captures Web Pages into
Fully Formatted PDF Documents

San Jose, Calif., (Feb 16, 1999) (Nasdaq: ADBE)-Adobe Acrobat isn't
just for creating PDF files anymore. Unveiled today, Adobe Acrobat
4.0 software bridges the gaps left in today's electronic document
creation and collaboration workflows, making Acrobat 4.0 the
universal tool for document exchange.

Based on the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), Acrobat 4.0
software enables business users to more reliably share, collaborate
and deliver documents exactly as intended in their office computing
environments. Acrobat 4.0 provides a rich set of annotation and
security tools, the ability to re-use information within PDF files,
and delivers high-end professional publishing features. Additionally,
to round out Acrobat's comprehensive document conversion
capabilities, Acrobat 4.0 now provides easy HTML to PDF conversion,
making it easy to aggregate and re-use Web pages.

Whether it's capturing Web pages for re-use, distributing documents
from Microsoft Office applications, or collaborating with Lotus
Notes, Acrobat 4.0 enables customers to build more efficient document
workflows in today's businesses.

"Because many document workflows are still paper-based and computing
environments are heterogeneous, it's difficult for many companies to
realize the benefits of a completely electronic document workflow,"
said Sheri Schurter, Group Product Manager, Adobe Systems. "Acrobat
4.0 allows businesses to leverage their existing infrastructures,
because it provides a common currency in PDF for reliable document
exchange across computer platforms and application versions."

The latest version builds on the application's core electronic
document publishing capabilities while transforming it into an
essential tool for many types of business uses. Now, law firms,
financial services companies, pharmaceutical companies, advertising
agencies, Web and graphics professionals, can easily share,
collaborate and deliver documents across the enterprise. For example,
Lockheed Martin Tactical Aircraft Systems has used Adobe Acrobat
software for years to create and distribute worldwide large volumes
of documents, ranging from product collateral to employee expense
forms to proposed aircraft configurations. Now, new features in
Acrobat 4.0 promise to expand Acrobat's role in the company's
day-to-day operations.

"The ability to capture individual Web pages or entire Web sites,
review and mark up documents online, and sign off on materials
electronically brings Acrobat to a new level in document
distribution. With Acrobat 4.0, it's faster and more cost-effective
than ever for us to create materials, receive feedback from
reviewers, and then deliver final documents to employees," said Fred
Harper, Web services team lead, Lockheed Martin Tactical Aircraft
Systems.

Key Features and Benefits
Adobe has enhanced Acrobat in a variety of ways to make it much
easier to create PDF files, use Web content, re-use content within a
PDF file, annotate and secure documents, and create press ready files
for print production. Following are the key features and benefits of
Adobe Acrobat 4.0.

Convert Files into Adobe PDF Easily
Users can now convert files into PDF by simply dragging and dropping
the file onto the Acrobat icon. Additionally, the new Adobe PDFMaker
utility (included with Acrobat) allows users to convert Word, Excel
or Microsoft PowerPoint files into PDF from within those applications.

Capture and Download Fully Formatted Web Pages For the first time,
users can download, annotate, scale, reliably print, and easily
distribute fully formatted web pages-even entire web sites-within one
application. Acrobat's new Web Capture tool quickly converts live web
pages into PDF files that preserve the pages' graphics, fonts,
colors, and active hyperlinks.

Re-use Information Within PDF Files
Adobe has also updated the Adobe Portable Document Specification
(PDF). This latest version, PDF 1.3, now supports high-end
professional publishing features and hierarchical metadata structure.
It is precisely this support of metadata in PDF that allows the
re-use of information contained in a PDF file. For example, where
security permits, users can extract text graphics, and table data
from PDF files.

Review and Annotate Documents
In addition to adding sticky notes, the new version enables users to
add stamps, text blocks and audio clips. Also, the author of the
original document can easily summarize and review annotations by
navigating and filtering a document based on its annotations.
Digitally Sign Documents
Adobe has expanded on Acrobat's current ability to secure documents.
Acrobat 4.0 now supports digital signatures enabling users to
authenticate and safeguard information by allowing authors and key
personnel to "sign" electronic documents. A digital signature can
also verify that a document has not been altered since it was sent.

Optimize PDF Files for Print Production Workflows Adobe PDF is
quickly becoming the file format of choice for delivering press ready
files for print-production, and Acrobat 4.0 and Adobe PDF 1.3 offer
enhanced features for graphic artists, publication designers, and
pre-press and printing professionals. Acrobat 4.0 provides support
for high-end features such as ICC profiles, full support for Adobe
PostScript 3, and tools for making last-minute changes to text and
graphics within a PDF file.

Pricing and Availability
Adobe Acrobat 4.0 software is expected to be available in the second
quarter of 1999 for both Windows and Macintosh* with an estimated
street price of $249. Additionally, volume pricing will be available
and registered users of Adobe Acrobat software, version 2.0 and
higher, will be able to upgrade for $99 USD.

*The following features of Adobe Acrobat 4.0 software are only
available on the Windows platform: PDFMaker, Table Capture, Web
Capture and Digital Signatures.
