Dreamweaver I used this program during the One Stop Shop project to edit and migrate a large number of web pages (approx. 400) into a new content management system. Having a local copy of the complete site in Dreamweaver enabled global changes to be made to content elements before the pages were uploaded to Squiz Matrix. As the project had a very short deadline – we went live within four months – Dreamweaver was a vital element in efficiently managing such a large volume of content. LiveCycle Designer I have used this program to develop PDF forms that can be completed online and either printed (for order forms requiring physical signatures) or emailed. Acrobat Professional Using this software I have combined documents into a single PDF, or extracted pages into separate documents.
