Able2Extract is extremely helpful if you have a PDF with text that you want to manipulate. By converting it into another file format that is more conducive to text, you can correct spelling mistakes, copy paragraphs, and remove them or relocate them. Since I had to take spreadsheets and text from a PDF and insert them into a Word document, Able2Extract Professional was the exact tool I needed to avoid simply taking screenshots.

Adobe Acrobat DC

If you need to be able to view, print, annotate, sign, or redact content, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is an excellent tool. It is not just an "open a PDF and read it" application. It is very well suited to document management/collaboration in an environment where multiple people benefit from sharing a PDF file.Commenting in documents with Acrobat can become a royal pain at times. It feels "clunky" or cumbersome. For example, I may be trying to click in a specific place in the text to start highlighting, but Acrobat will insist on inserting a note instead.

Pros

Able2Extract Professional

  • Creates editable spreadsheets from Excel documents that have been scanned.
  • Allows certain segments of documents to be selected for editing.
  • Allows bulk conversion.

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Edit PDFs. One of the biggest challenges faced in document heavy workflows is editing a PDF. Adobe Reader DC does a fantastic job of allowing you to edit pdfs on the fly without having to go back to the original form and reconverting it.
  • Sign PDFs. I spend a lot of time signing contracts and approval forms. Adobe Reader DC allows me to do that quickly without having to use my mouse or another third party platform. I can do all I need right in the Adobe Reader DC workflow.
  • Merge PDFs. I find quite often that I need to put two or more documents together in one form. I can do that with just a few clicks in the Adobe Reader DC merge workflow.

Cons

Able2Extract Professional

  • GUI can always improve, even if it's currently good
  • Better how-to instructions to address initial learning curve
  • Functionality could be inserted into Adobe Acrobat Pro, potentially merging products

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • For a while the browser integration was not stable and crashed periodically (this issue has been fixed in the latest updates)
  • Basic PDF editing functionality is missing and could be very advantageous. Just add a few watered-down editing features of Acrobat Pro.

I use this program almost every day. Most of the documents we work with are already PDFs so it would be problematic if I didn't have this program anymore. I would renew it because it has made working with documents so much more efficient than when we used to rely on using Microsoft Word, printing, and scanning!

Every time I think of something I need to accomplish, whether it be creating a form that has fillable boxes, or converting one type of file to another, Adobe Acrobat can perform that function, and with a minimum of research necessary on deciphering how to accomplish the task. Just having features but being too hard to use can sink a program, and luckily this program is easy but capable.

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

I haven't had to use the customer support very often, it at all. Why? Because the software has a well though through user interface and has lots of horsepower when it needs to deal with gigantic documents. I don't think I've ever seen it crash.

Works well with JamF and SmartDeploy. These are our Enterprise imaging solutions for Mac's and PC's. The Enterprise installer is required when pushing out this app.

Alternatives Considered

Able2Extract Professional

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.
Pamela Harris | TrustRadius Reviewer

Adobe Acrobat DC

The Apple Preview app is simplistic and convenient for viewing PDFs, but it lacks the advanced features of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, such as document signing, customizable exporting of individual frames, and document protection. I also chose Acrobat because it comes with my Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, making it a no-brainer.

Adobe Acrobat DC

  • Time saver. Able to make most edits within so I don't have to go back to my design files and make adjustments and resave everything.
  • Can make edits to old documents.
  • It's nice to be able to convert pdfs to Word docs on occasion.
  • Reducing pdf files sizes has been great for online deliverability and saving hard drive space.
  • No need to outsource.
