Pros
The integration with other Adobe apps like InDesign. Best PDF editing features that enable me to edit a PDF file in any way I like and convert it in any format and back to PDF format as I'm pleased.

The ability to share documents and have all edits and comments saved right in the document with information on who made them provides accountability and streamlined communication.

Adobe Acrobat DC is certainly appropriate software to share and edit files. It is the most popular tool with absolutely straightforward customer support.

Cons
It's a little difficult to go back and forth between these functions. There are certain problems with text scanning that cause some characters to be misinterpreted.

Adobe Acrobat DC - One Stop Shop for PDF file viewing

Reviewed 23 days ago

My overall experience with Adobe Acrobat DC has been great. I use it every day to go through PDF files that I have created from the Word/PDF documents like the dossier, help guide, FAQ document, and many others for the products we create at ZS. The only shortcoming is the presence of basic features like page reorganizing and editing behind a paywall.

Pros

The best thing I like about Adobe Acrobat DC is the fact that it stands out to be the best PDF reader available. It provides a whole variety of tools to insert digital signatures in the document, add comments and highlight text - free of cost. As a part of the Product team at ZS, we convert ur help guides from Word to PDF format, so that the client cannot make edits in it easily. These documents have approval signatures from the Leadership team and they mention comments in the PDF, in case there are any changes required to be done before approval.

Cons

The thing which I least like about this software is the fact that many other features like Edit PDF, Rotate pages, Compress PDF, and Reorganize Pages are behind a paywall - with only a 7-day free trial period. The thing is there are multiple online softwares that already help do this for free, for an unlimited number of PDFs in a short turnaround time. Unfortunately, these online softwares are likely to store client-sensitive data upon upload and are not allowed for use in ZS. It would be helpful if Adobe Acrobat DC makes these features free of cost.

Clunky, there are better viewers out there...

Pros

Adobe Acrobat has integrated well with other softwares as the default PDF viewer. It's simplicity can be nice at times as a PDF viewer.

Cons

The software operates very slowly making it very difficult to justify using it. The slow operation has deterred me as a user to explore other capabilities it has. There are much better options for PDF viewers and editors out there.

The new era of PDF editing and management

Reviewed 2 months ago

I have to deal with administrative documents that require my signature. ADobe helps me do it easily. Painless and hassle-free. And as a researcher, I work with old scanned documents. The OCR results I get from Adobe are of great quality. I couldn't imagine going back and getting horrible results.

Pros

1) OCR works very well and supports different languages. 2) Combining/merging documents is absolutely easy. 3) Signing documents without any problem.

Cons

I don't like the results when exporting to Word format. Instead of getting easy to handle text, you get lots of text frames and text, making it a pain to edit. I have found a solution: export to HTML first and then convert to Word. Or use other software. In the end, it's not that critical.

My review

Reviewed 22 days ago

My experience with Adobe Acrobat DC program is one of the best experiences. I have been using it for more than five years so far, thanks to which I was able to save the price of buying paper books and also provide storage places. It also helped me a lot during my studies while studying, even during my work now, it helps me to send and receive documents in pdf form. and I hope it continues to move forward

Pros

The best thing I liked in Adope Acrobat DC is the feature of converting images into written texts that I can read and display on my phone, computer, or even a projector. Thanks to her, she saved me from writing and saved me a lot of time

Cons

Really, there is nothing I did not like about the program. All of its features are advantages over other complex programs
