About PDF Files
PDF stands for Portable Document Format.This universal file format was created by Adobe Systems in 1993.A PDF (Portable Document Format) file is a self-contained cross-platform document.In plain language,it is a file that will look the same on the screen and in print,regardless of what kind of computer or printer someone is using and regardless of what software package was originally used to create it.

PDF files are able to preserve the formats, fonts, drawings and other file components of virtually any electronic document file and present it in a universal format.

PDF files are cross-platform files,which means they are able to be read on both Mac and Windows operating systems,as well as the new Android platform found in many of today's cell phones.

Many of today's eBook publishers use PDF format for publishing.PDF files are also used by businesses and individuals to distribute documents and literature.
