What users say

Instead of reading manually, the app can do it for me and I can see only the part which are changed. If it is in your budget range, it is the best app to use for both personal or professional use.
Adobe Acrobat is pretty much the gold standard for PDFs. But it has gotten too expensive for me, with the subscription based fee system.

Still the best, at a high price

Reviewed 7 months ago

I would expect the pioneers of PDF format to always be the benchmark -and i'm happy to say they are!You can expect frequent updates form Adobe and always easier ways to handle PDFs... it's the most feature rich handler i've used (And i've used many). HOWEVER - there are alot of very good competitors out there for a fraction of the cost of Adobe Acrobat with most of the features you find here. If you run a business or you're a professional where PDFs are a considerably important part of your workflow go for it. For everyone else, there are great free or cheaper options out there with all the functionality you want.

Pros

Frequent updates.All the features you can think of in terms of PDF workloads.Amazing file format conversion options.

Cons

Expensive.Editing text is a toss up for me - more times than not it feels like its a sib sluggish and accurate formatting to the original format isn't guaranteed.

As default software it could be better

Reviewed 4 years ago

You get what you pay for, and what you get works fine. But most of the software's capability is only available if you pay for premium access.

Pros

Adobe Reader DC is ubiquitous, so it is always a program I use by default, even though I have PDF software I like better and use just as often. I keep it as default PDF software because there are certain websites I use often with interactive forms that do not support BlueBeam. Adobe is generic and for general access to PDFs it works well with little problem. If I want to manipulate the PDFs I flip to another software

Cons

Adobe DC is free, so of course the value for the money is commensurate with what I pay for it. But most of the features I want to use are only available in the cloud or behind the premum package paywall. The interface is set up to push you to use these added features, but without buying the professional package, they are useless to me, and I switch over to Bluebeam to do any serious manipulation of PDF material.

PDF files are Ubiquitous , so it pays to be adept with Adobe Acrobat

Reviewed a year ago

Since PDF files are supported everywhere it's essential to dealing with documents. Once when I bought a condo I had to send the Master Deed to my insurance agent but I only had a paper copy of the deed. Luckily our printer/scanner has a scan to PDF doc feature where it sends the produced doc to my e-mail address; a life saver. My day to day experience is typically just using Acrobat for reading documents, occasionally I'll encounter a document which is setup such that I can fill-in prepared form entries with just Acrobat Reader, PRO not required.

Pros

Standards are a good thing and PDF is the de facto standard for regular documents and Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and the pre-eminent PDF reader, it's use is a no brainer.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat Pro is needed for PDF creation or adhoc free editing. Acrobat Pro is too expensive for a casual user. Therefore typically only a few workers for whom document creating/editing is an essential part of their job have a Acrobat Pro license.

Might be the best PDF Editor

Reviewed 7 months ago

Adobe Acrobat is a great document management tool. It has a lot of features and integration to help handle all kinds of documents.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat is an awesome tool that can convert almost any file into a PDF, like documents and images. It also works the other way around—it can turn PDFs into Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents. I appreciate that I can use it to convert static images with text to editable text and easily build signable forms and invoices.

Cons

This program can be a resource hog and the price is too high if you buy it as a stand-alone program and not with the Adobe CC subscription.

Creating and Collecting Gone Wild

Reviewed 3 years ago

We don’t have staff dedicated to using Acrobat DC on a daily basis. This is because the benefits of the software allow us to spend minimal time creating documents and forms, which can then be easily distributed to the proper recipients. We may not use it every day, but that is only because it works so well. The creation of forms that previously took hours of tweaking and changing only to come out less than perfect is now a simple procedure that our staff can complete without spending inordinate amounts of time trying to “figure out” what to do.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC has been a vital addition to our office. It integrates seamlessly into our current work environment to the point that many staff members do not even realize that we are using it. For the staff members who do use it, their unanimous response is that there will be an uprising if we cancel the subscription to the software. The ability to edit PDFs, create dynamic forms for client questionnaires,...

Cons

Our clients who are not computer savvy seem to be averse to using Adobe Reader DC to fill out documentation. Having an interface option that resembles other popular word processors would ease that burden, but it is by no means a deal-breaker when it comes to evaluating whether to retain our license.

Ubiquitous to this day

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall it's what you'd expect, gripes aside this is the standard for a reason. There are other options out there, but given the feature set and how the .PDF is basically Adobe's file format, you aren't really conceding to anything but perhaps the cost when you hop into this. If you can get educational or non-profit pricing on this, it is much better than an outright retail license. Would like to see an enterprise or non-profit professional version that was optional to make deployment on a large scale a bit more flexible.

Pros

Being the program natively associated with .PDF (though others TRY and take control of them in the OS), I like that core features and anything new associated with the format will be available in Acrobat. Document consolidation is fantastic, and then the OCR function is actually pretty robust, coming in very handy for less tech-savvy users. While you do want people to grasp some of the fundamentals for PC use, it's nice to have an advanced feature like that to assist in a pinch, instead of having to explain why that's an odd thing to ask a PC. The security features are also excellent, assisting a lot with users handling sensitive legal documents.

Cons

Deployment is my biggest gripe, as doing large-scale installation is fine...as long as you have a volume license key under single key. My organization uses multiple keys depending on the department and/or center they operate out of. This is very difficult as installation during our WDS imaging would be quite helpful, but we can't if the license key differs. This was our decision, but the price we receive...

Adobe: The best PDF editor and creator especially for business use.

Reviewed 7 months ago

Despite being expensive and complicated, once you learn to use it effectively it saves you time and improves your work productivity. There's nothing better than knowing that your work is safely stored and that you can access it at any time, anywhere, using any device. It's actually a great value for money.

Pros

Security features - documents are kept safe and unauthorized persons can access them. Easy to make changes to a PDF document like editing and sharing files using links that can be sent via email.Their customizable form fields are flexible allowing users to create text fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-down lists, etc, while designing forms tailored to their specific needs.It saves time by providing pre-existing forms, templates, or invoices to enable us to only edit according to our specifications without having to start from scratch.

Cons

The Adobe full-featured version is expensive.It has a lot of features that can be complex for new users, so people need to take time to learn to use it effectively.

The Essential Tool for Professional Document Management: My Experience with Adobe Acrobat

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Adobe Acrobat has been an invaluable asset for me in my role as a Sales Manager, as I have been able to use it for a variety of tasks. The software is user-friendly and easy to navigate, offering comprehensive features and tools to create, edit, and share documents. It also provides robust security measures to protect sensitive information and allows for tracking documents to make sure the intended recipients only access them.

Cons

The process of learning Adobe Acrobat was not a pleasant one for me. It took me a significant amount of effort to get the hang of creating and amending PDFs and the user interface was not easy to follow. Furthermore, the cost of the program was quite high in comparison with how challenging it was to use.

Very useful for document management and team collaboration

Reviewed 2 years ago

Prior to discovering these very unique features (merging, splitting, rearranging, etc.) in Adobe Acrobat, sharing source research material with team members meant attaching 15 separate files with 5 more written pages on which pages were useful or relevant. Now, I can directly split them and combine only the relevant pages into much lighter documents. Plus annotation feature allows me to add notes directly into sections -- which have combined to reduce our time on task for reports almost by 25%.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat has very advanced features to make every aspect of working on PDF files and other formats as effective as possible. My favorite features will have to be my most commonly used ones -- the document merge and rearrange functions. They allow me to compile research referencing materials quite easily into single documents for easier usage.

Cons

Pricing for product suites is quite high, with too many routine product updates. Also product licensing for team can be a bit complicated to get around.

Systematized PDF software with top notch features

Reviewed 2 years ago

The Adobe Acrobat DC is quick and compatible with a wide range of file types, allowing you to edit PDF files quickly and save them in a variety of forms. Aside from that, it allows you to simply convert a document from Microsoft Office, such as word or power point, and at the same time, it allows you to join several PDF files, as well as re-arrange pages to correctly organize the file before saving and printing. You may read, amend, and fill out forms, as well as use your e-signature to sign them. Even when using other online systems like Panda Doc and Docu sign, the compatibility aspect and signature validation helps a lot, especially when working with several corporations.

Pros

1. Responsive Interface 2. Advanced encryption mechanism 3. Extensive toolkit 4. Cloud based commenting and sharing 5. Quick conversion of photo to PDF 6. Text Indexing mechanism 7. PDF editing from a single platform 8. Easy Collaboration 9. Auto Complete Feature 10. Secure and optimize PDF's 11. Auto Signature feature 12. PDF Merge facility 13.Interactivity of designs with texts and graphics. 14. Pre-flighting files 15. Version control 16. Batch Processing 17. Pro factor in third party integrations 18.

Cons

1. Lacks some high OCR proofreading tools 2. Cumbersome Program 3. No ePub format 4. UI needs to be customized. 5. Difficult to know the Rich feature set for beginners. 6. Bit Expensive. 7. Performance issues when handling the batch processing request 8. IPhone support is limited 9. File type conversion is bit clunky

I want my old Adobe Acrobat back!

Reviewed 5 years ago

We used adobe to create FDA drug applications. It was pretty quirky and did not always work well as the versions kept coming out faster than fecund bunnies. I have used Adobe since it first came out and the PDF format has proven to be the most reliable in terms of digital archive longevity. But although Adobe may have invented the format, there are many other options today that are far less expensive and good enough for everyday business use.

Pros

I do like the strength of the features in Adobe DC. It is extremely powerful and let’s you do almost anything you would ever need to do. The feature I use the most is the ability to move pages around, eliminate them altogether, or even combine with another document.

Cons

One has to launch no less than 10 apps to do what should be available from the main app. I was also never certain if I had launched the right app (the read only version does nothing but the launch icon is almost identical to the DC version). I also hated having to always switch from their “creative cloud” storage. AND Adobe subscriptions have become very pricey

Worth paying for, though you may not realise it

Reviewed 2 years ago

Though I used the free 'Reader' version for many years, I find myself using the full features of the paid version far more often than I would have expected, that is, on a semi-daily basis. It is the kind of tool that you never expect you need, until you do. For someone in my business (translation) who has to work with a wide range of documents of various types and qualities, it is more than worth the modest price tag.

Pros

Acrobat DC makes it quite easy to create, edit, and manage PDF files. I particularly appreciate the 'fill in and sign' feature, which has certainly saved me from having to print and scan several hundred pages of documents. The edit and rearrange features are invaluable in preparing documents for efficient translation or further processing. The OCR feature, while not as powerful as those provided by competitors such as Abby and Omnipage, is quite good for the price.

Cons

The interface seems a bit messy, with icons across top and side bars. It almost seems as if they took the Reader version and then added all the additional features to the side bar, cluttering up the interface. I find it quite annoying that the bar cannot be moved or hidden, especially when I am trying to work with several documents on one screen.

Outstanding functionality with a hefty price tag

Reviewed 3 years ago

My office efficiency benefits enormously by the speed in which I'm able to modify, re-purpose and share documents. I can't imagine doing everything I do without Acrobat DC. The ability to work seamlessly with InDesign and Photoshop make the Suite worth the cost for me.

Pros

I can do so much with so many types of files using Acrobat, so functionality gets the blue ribbon. Make a static text doc editable, turn a doc into a graphic, easily turn an existing form into an online fillable one, manage document color, resize large pdfs for web use...the list goes on and on. The toolbox is easily accessible and fairly well-organized, so the functionality is also fairly straightforward as well (unlike some other Adobe products).

Cons

Honestly, what I like least is that Adobe decided to use the same name (Acrobat) for Reader software. I understand why they'd connect the two, but for the vast majority of casual users, I think "Acrobat" means Reader. I work with many users who would like to do what I do with documents, and ask "How did you do that so quickly?" When I answer, there's all kinds of confusion. More of an irritation that I need to differentiate between the two than an actual dislike. I do wish the price tag was in reach for more, but the robustness of Adobe products in general can't be expected to be cheap.

Convert your document to the desired format

Reviewed 9 months ago

Adobe Acrobat is a platform where people can convert their documents in any format they want and can also open by the use of this platform. I am glad that I used this platform. With the help of this platform, I was able to convert my documents into different formats.

Pros

The best features of Adobe Acrobat -- It is very easy to use things on this platform as one can easily convert documents in different formats such as PDF, JPG, and many more. - The platform also provides an editing option to edit the document and can change the document colour and many more.- It also provides a cloud storage option, we can save our documents in it and also access it as and when required. - It supports all types of platforms and devices like ioS, Android, Windows etc. - We can generate a large number of images/documents in one PDF without any restrictions in it.- The interface is very user-friendly- It supports all types of document formats and due to this, it can open any type of document.

Cons

The cons of Adobe Acrobat -If your phone/computer gets off in the middle of the process of conversion then you will lose all of your open documents.It utilizes more amount of RAM of the device and due to this device becomes slow. Adobe Acrobat does not work well on iOS devices, it lags sometimes or takes a longer period of time to generate a PDF. The cloud server provided by this platform is expensive compared to other platforms

Documents? Have you tried Adobe Acrobat?

Reviewed a year ago

It is a software that I have personally used for a long time. It is a standard software that you can use in all personal and professional business life. The biggest difference from other alternative software on the market is the functions and features it contains. It is easy to install, quickly adaptable and has a licensing method for IT processes. The advantage it provides in the cloud environment is ease of administration in terms of size. Thanks to its integration with other software, it saves a lot of lost resources.

Pros

It can recognize, read and analyze all our documents that we keep digitally as PDFs. Instead of a program with a different version for each document, we can quickly start using a single updated Adobe software. We can quickly resolve all processes (translation, correction, rearrangement, adding explanations, etc.) spent on documents at a single point. It can be done in a much more advantageous and reliable way with the advantage of time, resources and cost. Integration with dropbox and OneDrive, which we use the most in our business processes and make all our time more efficient. At the same time, it minimizes resource consumption with its sharing feature. Especially adding protection to PDF files that need protection is the best part.

Cons

If other software products you use are incompatible with Acrobat versions, you may get some errors. Basically if you update your software this problem will be solved. These problems are usually local. They are not software-specific bugs. The problems we experienced before were quickly resolved (freezing, unable to print, etc.).

I like Adobe Acrobat for its ability to help me convert and edit documents quickly and easily. Its features include PDF creation from a variety of file types, editing existing PDFs, and converting PDFs to other file formats. It also helps me to add comments, highlight text, and add text and images to documents. I can also create forms in Adobe Acrobat and make sure that any changes I make are automatically saved. Its security features help me to protect sensitive documents from unauthorized access.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat can be quite difficult to navigate for those who are not familiar with the program and its tools. The program is quite complex, and it can be time-consuming to learn all of its features, as well as how to use them. Additionally, the program is often slow to respond to commands, which can be frustrating for users. The price of the program can also be prohibitive for some users, as it is quite expensive compared to some of its competitors. Finally, the program can be quite buggy, with some features not functioning correctly or unexpectedly crashing.
