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.

Most popular and easy to use PDF tool.

Reviewed 2 months ago

Good software across the years is the most easy tool to use.

Pros

The ease and popularity of years of continuous use have made this software pretty handy, also new tools over the years are more and more useful.

Cons

The price for acquisition on a plus license is highly expensive for common people, enterprises might consider buying this software plus license but they also doubt about the price vs capacities.

Ubiquitous to this day

Reviewed 4 months 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 Acrobat DC, the most powerful PDF Document Creater.

Reviewed 5 months ago

Adobe Acrobat DC is without any doubt the most powerful and efficient of all PDF manager. It has a pleasant interface and hosts all most every tool you can think of for creating and editing a pdf document. As a document reader it has a minimal interface and leaves a lot of space for you to view your documents. The print support and optimization is also excellent.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC is a powerful PDF manager, that lets you create and edit PDF documents. It loads pretty fast and allows you to break down a PDF document and convert it to any format according to your needs. It enables you to upload PDF documents and divide or merge them with other documents. Adobe Acrobat includes a large number of features and functions due to which it is equally useful for everyone...

Cons

Adobe Acrobat DC comes with a quite hefty price tag in comparison to other similar apps. It takes quite some time to get used to it and is not the best option for novice users. Also its support for iOS is somewhat limited which needs to be enhanced to its standard.

Gold Standard For Documents

Reviewed 9 months ago

You can view, annotate, sign, and print documents created in PDF format. It does its job perfectly with several outstanding features. I think the premium pricing is the only limiting factor for this piece of software.

Pros

1. It is a perfect tool for viewing and printing PDF documents, ideal for sharing business-related information. 2. You can request signatures from other users or sign the document to verify its contents. You can fill and sign as per document requirements, helping collect information from different users. 3. The document cloud feature lets you save your PDF files on remote servers for easy retrieval...

Cons

1. Its premium pricing may dissuade a particular section of users who are anyway getting cheaper options elsewhere. 2. The free version does not offer the most basic and functional features like editing and join/split options which is disappointing for most users.

Creating and Collecting Gone Wild

Reviewed 10 months 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.

The best way to work with pdf files

Reviewed a year ago

Adobe Acrobat DC allows us to swiftly and simply fill out and sign PDF forms, as well as amend and return PDF documents to clients and partners through email. As a result, the software increases our efficiency while also improving the client experience. Over the medium and long term, we anticipate the software application will assist decrease printing and courier expenses. Adobe is a must-have for both official and personal use due to day-to-day duties. Its storage features, in particular, have made it on my list of must-have apps.

Pros

I enjoy how simple it is to use, how many useful tools it has, how papers can be updated, how electronic signatures can be added, how you can clip photographs, add documents, and divide them, and how each tool is simple to use. They also make your regular tasks a lot simpler. I believe that each new version is far superior to the previous one, since it adapts to the contemporary demands of office job...

Cons

While editing documents, the location of test components might shift, making it difficult to reposition them. It also fails to correctly render the font of new edits. On many features, there isn't enough marketing and documentation. It may also be made to be a bit cheaper. There are a variety of features available, depending on how they are used. 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. The cost of Adobe Acrobat DC licence is slightly greater, and the free version provides very restricted functionality to the user. Apart from that, the features, facilities, and user compatibility are excellent.

A very complete and total PDF solution

Reviewed 10 months ago

Adobe Acrobat has been a very useful tool for me and my team. It allows us to collaborate seamlessly in working together to edit documents. We no longer have to contend with document formatting challenges we face when we collaborate to edit document in Word. There has been an overall improvement in document consistency and turn around time since we began using Acrobat for most of our pdf needs.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat offers a complete and total package for working with pdf files. One of my favorite features in Acrobat is the ability to edit text directly in the original document without even needing to struggle to identify the source font because the program is smart And powerful enough to do all that for you.

Cons

The product license issues and frequent update notifications that never seem to go away can be very distressing. And it’s also a bit more expensive. But I guess it’s worth it for the quality it offers.

Very useful for document management and team collaboration

Reviewed 5 months 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.

Powerful PDF editing, but very expensive

Reviewed 7 months ago

Editing/annotating PDF's is a vital need for many individuals and especially businesses. While Acrobat DC is a great tool, its price can be quite prohibitive. As such, while using Acrobat DC is in and of itself a good experience, when taking into consideration its price, Acrobat DC ends up as a subpar experience.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC is an incredibly powerful PDF editor, supporting pretty much every feature you can imagine when it comes to PDF editing. These features include basic tools, such as deleting/adding/reordering pages, and adding annotations to more advanced functions such as editing existing text, deleting elements on the page, and creating fillable forms. Fillable forms in particular is a very powerful tool, with Acrobat attempting to automatically detect form fields within a PDF. In addition, Acrobat DC supports digital signatures. allowing you to edit vast majorities of a PDF including existing text. You can create fillable forms from an existing PDF that does not have fillable forms.

Cons

The main downside to Acrobat DC is its price - $15/month in perpetuity. For a program that is designed to do one thing (and it does that one thing quite well), $15/month is quite expensive. Furthermore, Acrobat DC's interface is extremely dense and can be hard to navigate. Finally, creating fillable forms can be a lesson in frustration when Acrobat's auto form detection fails.r

Systematized PDF software with top notch features

Reviewed 5 months 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.

I want my old Adobe Acrobat back!

Reviewed 3 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

Adobe Acrobat DC

Reviewed 3 months ago

My experience is very wonderful and I rely on it completely in my work and in my home and during my university studies I did not buy paper books and replaced them with a tambourine and increased work on it after I was on the phone I am really grateful to this company, which is part of my daily entertainment, work and cultural life

Pros

• So useful for this day and age. I can set up fields I want filled, mark certain ones as required and then save & send for completion. • Multiplatform (desktop, mobile, and web) • Offers PDF editing and conversion options • Fast high-quality output delivery • Print to PDF • Forms to fillable PDFs conversions • PDFs to Office formats conversions

Cons

• Unfortunately, recently, my office has been fighting a battle with Reader DC which have forced us to go back and purchase older copies of Reader just to be able to do our daily tasks. For some reason, the newest updates have picked a battle with what seems to be certain HP print drivers, rendering all Windows processes extremely slow, especially upon printing. • The trial period is short • I've tried pulling images from PDFs using Acrobat DC and sometimes it works like a charm and other times it just doesn't work. It pixelates the image or it doesn't pull the entire thing. • When converting files from PDF to Microsoft program, the quality is low and the format must be worked on again • I wish Adobe could be more cost efficient.

Worth paying for, though you may not realise it

Reviewed 4 months 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.

Excellence does not come cheap

Reviewed 7 months ago

The ability to quickly create pdf's from scratch, converted from photoshop files, MS word documents and even web pages (see caveat) is pretty life changing. We have been paying for Creative Cloud for ages and only last year realized that Acrobat was part of the package.

Pros

Acrobat is kind of the gold standard - what with inventing pdf and everything. My favorite and most used feature is its seamless integration for the Adobe creative package which also includes photoshop, indesign, and illustrator. As a wholesale art and design firm, we are constantly creating customized catalogs and look books for prospective customers. Acrobat makes it incredibly easy to generate a unique wholesale catalog, tear sheet and order form using a combination of images and documents created in other Adobe products.

Cons

One thing that is missing that should be part of the Adobe software is the ability to create a long single-page PDF from a web page web page. Right now, when I bring over text from our online store, there is a page break that shows up every time Adobe recognizes an end of viewable screen. This makes a document that should only be two or three pages long ... turn into a small book. It's annoying that I have to manually undo the page breaks every single time. Adobe should recognize and eliminate that problem.

It is a software with many tools to edit and combine documents. I recommend using the premium version because it allows you to save documents in the cloud and thus be able to access them from anywhere. It allows me to correct and edit PDF files.

PDF files have become a standard in the workplace, which helps the digitization of documents and thus use less physical paper and have a greener work environment, adobe acrobat allows a more productive work environment and decreases the time of signature processes and cost of documents.

Adobe Acrobat DC - One Stop Shop for PDF file viewing

Reviewed 2 months 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.

Best PDF Reader Out There

Pros

This is Adobe Acrobat, this is the God-Father of PDF software and it didn't get that title for nothing. The newer version of Adobe Acrobat DC have fluid, intuitive and modern interfaces. The ability to type in what you're trying to do in search and get a direct result even without perfect wording is a life saver for "Not-So-Power-Users" trying to accomplish more complex tasks. The features you need in a PDF software are all here and then some.

Cons

I have two problems with this software, when dragging an element around it'll snap into place, which is nice but sometimes I do find the alignment a little off and it can be tedious to get it just right. The other is the pricing, not the price tho. See Adobe sells the software for a monthly fee as part of their Creative Cloud solution but for people like me who prefer to pay once for a piece of the software that's a bummer. However! Adobe does sell the software stand alone for a flat fee, it's just not advertised on their site that way and unless you know about it, you'd probably not even know it was an option. I don't like that.

Essential Office Tool

Adobe Acrobat DC has truly allowed our company to move closer to a paperless environment through its capabilities of manipulating pdf documents.

Pros

This software is absolutely essential when working in an office environment. Considering I receive pdf documents multiple times a day, it is invaluable that I am able to open them as well as work within the document. Acrobat Reader DC allows me to easy add signatures to pdf documents without having to print the document, thus saving paper. It also allows me to add notes and edit text at times where available. Multiple times a day employees will come to me and request that I delete an image, add text or remove text from a pdf document. Acrobat Reader is environmentally friendly, whether it was intended that way or not, as we not longer need to print pdf documents to edit them. It is also extremely useful to be able to combine files, delete pages, add pages as well as convert files to pdf.

Cons

It can be expensive so we only have the full suite installed on two computers throughout the company.

Adobe Acrobat DC, the best software to view PDF files

Reviewed 7 months ago

In general, my experience with Acrobat has been very good, all the books and standards in PDF format that I use in my work I open with this software. Years ago I was able to use the PRO version and it was very useful in my work, since I had to scan and gather a large number of documents and although the files could have more than 500 pages, the program's compression options allowed having files of acceptable sizes without losing quality

Pros

For me, Acrobat Reader is the best software to view PDF files on the PC, although there are many other alternatives, I would not change the free version of Acrobat for another. Although the PRO version of Acrobat is very complete and allows the creation and editing of PDF files, that monthly or annual payment is only justified if you are going to take advantage of it.

The main disadvantage of Acrobat DC Pro is the monthly payment, it is too expensive for someone who is only going to use it sporadically, to gather files or sign documents

There are Equally Good Options Out There for Free or Less Expensive Cost

Reviewed a year ago

The software works great and it's fairly straightforward to use. If you don't mind paying for it then this is probably the best option out there.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is the premier .pdf and document editor on the market. They pretty much invented it. The free version only allows you to view documents and make some very minor edits. If you really need to edit a document and do anything to it then you have to upgrade to DC. And it's not cheap.

Cons

Like all Adobe products, the competition is so scattered that Adobe monopolizes the professional market and makes you pay well for it. They have set everything up as a subscription now and if you want to use their product then that's your only option. With a little research, you can find several .pdf editors that can even edit Adobe DC files. They have a lot of capability for free or they offer a one-time purchase price if you need more advanced options. I'm sorry, but a .pdf editor shouldn't cost over $100 per year to use, especially since you never own it.
