My hospital emailed me a medical records release form as a PDF. They told me to print it, fill it, sign it, scan it and return it to the medical records department, in that order. In 2018? To get the form via email (i.e., electronically), yet be asked to print it? Did the last 20 years just… not mean anything! So I thought I’d be clever. I’d fill it first, THEN print it.

Architecture, engineering, and construction companies are benefiting from learning the ins and outs of managing PDF files, according to an article by Constructech magazine. The article says, “Leveraging PDF-based solutions in construction not only improves workflow, but it can also boost teams ability to collaborate, and can even help switch to paperless operations.” While PDF can be a boon to businesses, the author warns users to be wary of different versions of Acrobat software and potential problems, “such as missing fonts and poorly defined page boxes, both of which affect processing speed and printing accuracy.” Being educated in what PDF offers and how best to use it for various applications can make all the difference.
