Bit of story
PDF (Portable Document Format) is not just a well-known and convenient format, but also the only one that has been a standard since 2008. It was developed by a team at Adobe Systems. The developers of the format set themselves the task of creating such a format for displaying a document so that the document opens and looks the same on any device.
Today, this format is often associated with a «paperless office», and in the case of design, with preparation for printing and with the transfer of graphic layouts to the printing house.
