The TerraGo Collaboration tools contain six information tools.
The TerraGo Collaboration tools allow you to import data from and export data to a path that contains UNICODE code point greater than a 255 character set, ensuring consistent representation and text manipulation expressed in most of the world's writing systems.
You can specify the preferred method of character encoding in the .dbf file in the General pane in the TerraGo Preferences dialog box.
3D GeoPDF files do not support GeoMarks.
For your Adobe Reader users to use the TerraGo Collaboration tools on a 2D GeoPDF file, you must enable the file for comments and measuring/analysis.
To use the GeoMark Toolbar with a 2D geospatially-aware PDF file, you must convert it into a GeoPDF file by saving or GeoMark Enabling the file.
For instructions on how to access the GeoMark Toolbar, see Accessing the GeoMark Toolbar.

TerraGo Collaboration Tools
The GeoMarks View Filter tool allows you to specify a filter based on the user who created the GeoMark as well as the date and time the GeoMark was created or modified. This is especially useful if you collaborate with other users and receive multiple .twx and .twz files, as imported GeoMarks may stack on top of each other obscuring the view.
The Import as GeoMarks tool allows you to import GeoMarks from TerraGo collaboration files (.twz and .twx) and from standard file formats such as .gpx, .kml, and shape files (.shp). The TerraGo collaboration file preserves the information in the GeoMark Editor, through which you can manage the data including links and attachments.
The Delete GeoMarks tool allows you to remove all GeoMarks and/or annotations from your file.
The Export GeoMarks tool allows you to export GeoMarks and annotations to a TerraGo collaboration file (.twz) and to standard file formats such as .kml and shape files (.shm). You can then import the GeoMarks into a GIS, Google Earth, TerraGo Mobile, GeoPDF Toolbar, GeoPDF Composer and GeoPDF Publisher® for ArcGIS.
The Peer-to-Peer Collaboration tool allows you to quickly export GeoMarks based on the preferences you specified in the P2P Export pane in the TerraGo Preferences dialog box.
The Peer-to-Peer Collaboration tool allows you to specify:
preferences such as the preferred annotation type and coordinate system in your exported files
that the data to be exported always resides in the largest map frame or that you prefer to be prompted to provide the map frame in which the data resides
whether your exported .twz file should include the Google Earth .kml file and whether the exported .twz file should include the map
whether you prefer to be prompted to include additional recipients or comments before exporting your .twz files.
TerraGo Collaboration Manager
If the TerraGo Collaboration Manager is installed on your machine, the TerraGo Collaboration Manager tool allows you to manage both your GeoForms and collaboration data.
The TerraGp Collaboration Manager allows you to:
create and modify GeoForms that are to be attached to GeoMarks
import forms created by other form creators for inclusion in your forms list
export your forms as .twz files to other form creators for inclusion in their forms lists
update an existing or create a new TerraGo Collaboration .twz file and prepare GeoPDF files for TerraGo Mobile.
