[Looking for Charlie's main web site?]

Finding the forums for the new Adobe Presentations

Note: This blog post is from 2009. Some content may be outdated--though not necessarily. Same with links and subsequent comments from myself or others. Corrections are welcome, in the comments. And I may revise the content as necessary.
Just want to share this bit of info, in case others find it as hard to locate as I did.

If you start to use the new Adobe Presentations service, an online presentation-building tool, now at labs.adobe.com, you may want to engage in some discussion with other users, so may go looking for some forums. You may struggle as I did.

Sadly, there's none for it listed at the acrobat.com forums page. Perhaps that's because Presentations is still in lab status.

There's also none listed in the Help menu for Presentations. There is a link to share feedback, which gives you an email address. That's better than nothing, but it's not a discussion forum. Some may even fear using it if it might be a black hole.

I decided to go ahead use that feedback address. I was delighted to get a response pretty quickly (well, first an automated one, and then a real person).

But what surprised me most was that the automated email (offered in response to using that feedback address) offered the URL for the forum!

So where is the forum? It's at: http://forums.adobe.com/community/labs/presentations/.

I responded that this link really ought to be listed in the Help menu of Presentations, but that suggestion seems to be challenge for them to implement. Oh well. I decided to share the info here, and also as a comment in a blog entry on Presentations in the Acrobat.com blogs.

Just seems it shouldn't be so hard to find these forums.
