What's New in Acrobat Reader 5.1  With powerful new and improved 
capabilities, Acrobat Reader 5.1 is an essential tool for anyone who 
needs to view, navigate, and print documents in the Adobe Portable 
Document Format (PDF). Document Rights
Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.1 contains some features that are available 
only when you open PDF documents with additional usage rights. These 
features include Save Document, Advanced Form features, Comments, and 
Digital Signatures. Creators of PDF documents determine which 
additional usage rights are available. When you open a document that 
includes additional usage rights, the Document Rights dialog box 
indicates which features are enabled and provides instructions from 
the creator of the PDF document. (See "Document Rights" on page 26.)

Digital signature validation
If someone sends you a PDF document with a digital signature, you can 
view, print, and validate the signature in Acrobat Reader. (See 
"Verifying signatures" on page 44.)

View attachments
If the author of the PDF document attached files or multimedia clips, 
you can open these attachments in Acrobat Reader. (See "Clicking 
links that open movies, sounds, and file attachments" on page 10.)

E-mail PDF files
You can send an e-mail message from Acrobat Reader that includes the 
open PDF document as an attachment. (See "Mailing PDF documents from 
Acrobat Reader" on page 18.)
