- Accessibility checker. Adobe Acrobat DC includes an accessibility check tool in the Action Wizard that highlights potential issues and helps you fix them.
- Form creation. We upload a lot of different forms and Adobe Acrobat DC makes creating fillable forms simple.
- Combine PDFs. We receive many Word documents that must be combined into a single PDF. Adobe Acrobat DC has a great drag and drop feature so we can see a preview of the pages we are combining and moving in order.
- Accessibility hints. While the accessibility tool is great, we often have users who don't know how to fix certain issues. Tool tips would help.
- Reduce file size without quality loss. Large file sizes can be troublesome for mobile users. Adobe Acrobat DC has tools to save PDFs at a smaller size, but that often means losing overall quality.
- More options for form distribution. Currently, form distribution only works through email, but expanding that to web integration would be extremely helpful.
- I like the fill and sign feature.
- Synching feature is very nice.
- Simplicity for basic tasks with a PDF, although then the thing gets a bit complicated. It has quite a lot of options
- What I like the least is its high price. A month is quite expensive. I would like for that price at least to be more agile using heavy pdfs.
- Sometimes it is not very intuitive to use. Some functions seem hidden to the user.
- Opening the large pdf documents it makes it to hang
What I liked the most was how nice the PDFs look and all the options Adobe gives you. Capturing parts of the PDF is very useful for making reports. The conception of the image as a vector object is a right choice, since you can zoom without losing quality.
Adobe Acrobat products need a simplification, Acrobat comes with Acrobat Reader, but you have to pay monthly. DC comes without Scan, but the MAX comes with the Scan, but without the cloud, and the cloud comes without the MAX but with the Adobe Acrobat DC, it is a tremendous mess to know what tools you need apart from the Adobe Acrobat DC to have everything centralized in the same suite. That and the price you have per month if you only select Acrobat DC
- I use it to create form fillable templates from Word Documents that enable us to save paper and transition our membership forms and progress reports to a digital method.
- After scanning sensitive materials, it's makes redacting sensitive information or blanking out non-relevant text on a document page simple.
- When our faculty needs books scanned, it's really easy to crop scans into neater, cleaner looking documents that are better sized and omit any dark sections form the scan platen.
- We work with a lot tenure review files that require statements and documentation form many sources, Acrobat DC is great at dragging and dropping, then merging documents into a single file.
- No cons that I can think of!
- Can take ANY PDF and edit it in just a few clicks.
- Can embed live links, easily.
- Can scan ANY image, and edit it easily and quickly.
- We run digital marketing campaigns where we take our eBook, Drawing On Brilliance and customize it to each brand we are working with. The eBook we use is one-of-a-kind, with a well-proven 100% customer engagement rate so being able to include each brand sponsors logo means a viral, lifetime of end customer exposure is invaluable - ROI for life.
- Apple's decision to not allow live links in their pdf docs anymore, drove many of us to Adobe. Live links are critically important in marketing docs as they give the end-user the opportunity to read what they value, and deeper-dive as they feel the need to. We also can use these live links in our data analytics when we measure depth of engagement. That's ROI for our customers, ROI for us as we then adapt quickly to that digital feedback (more of what works, less of what does not etc...)
- This capability opens all kinds of new opportunities for us. Our creative team is always scouting new sources of inspirational ideas. They were always scanning with their mobile devices. We just started to exploit this capability now that we have Adobe Acrobat DC and it's super easy to use. We scan as we always have, upload it to Adobe and edit away - as if we had created the original image ourselves. We're able to take the original scan and create an endless stream of new ways to turn it into what will engage our customers and their end-users too.
- Can't think of any
We can move seamlessly from an image we saw on an ad while on commuter rail, to a word doc where we play with new copy or a redesign and launch a brand new test campaign by the time we get back to the office.
There is a learning curve, at first, and there are still a few technical challenges between our Macs and Adobe. It's really Apple not wanting to play well with the MSFT world. But we got through it and you will too.
Very good experience with this tool. In the Organization we use it in all areas or departments since it allows us to convert, edit, send and sign PDF in the office, track PDF documents anywhere, on desktops, mobile devices and the Internet and work with my clients. most important documents from where I am, with quick access to the usual tools.
- Adobe Acrobat is designed to visualize, create and modify files in PDF format, it is very common to display text with an ordered visual design.
- This tool can be presented in the main operating systems such as Linux, OS X Mac, Unix, Windows without modifying the appearance or structure of the original document and not losing the format with sending to other users
- Sometimes it is a bit difficult to work with text in PDF files because it is perceived as images, but otherwise it seems an excellent tool
- Now with Adobe Acrobat there is the integration of Dropbox in the Home view and allows easily perform standard operations in files within Acrobat such as open, save create PDF, export PDF and attach to em
- Simple and smart software helps in creating, editing as well as securing PDF files.This software has different features but the best among all which I like most is edit a PDF file .
- Easily combine multiple PDF files in to one PDF file.
- Good for both personal and business use.
- Digital signatures feature of Adobe Acrobat DC greatly speeds up the teamwork.
- It can save a lot of space on the computers because the pdf files are lighter than other types of files especially for use on the Web.
- Some of Adobe Acrobat's features do not work on scanned PDF files. That makes them very difficult to edit.
- Sometimes my browser will hang up when trying to open particularly large PDF files.
- The download of this application is bit difficult as it takes some time to download.
- The service is great. You don't have to subscribe for a whole year. Instead you can subscribe for a month or however long you might need access to the Adobe Cloud service you're interested in. It's also easy to switch licenses from one user to another when business needs change within your organization.
- You can highlight text and comment on that specific area for others to review.
- There is a checklist feature that facilitates the editing of the pdf to review the comments and click on them when you have completed them. Being able to combine PDF files and delete or move pages is a great advantage. Its drag-and-drop technology is perfect and very easy to use. Creating fill forms is another advantage that makes any beginner can make editable forms and links.
- When editing a pdf, sometimes the highlighting areas can be skewed. It isn't 100% accurate on where the test is and will jump around a bit. Also, it will jump out of place on the checklist as well. For instance, there might be an edit that is at the top of the document, but on the checklist is towards the middle. This can be critical depending on the severity of the edit. It takes away the purpose of having a checklist when it is unorganized.
- Acrobat, despite it's UI flaws, is a very easy tool that can critically help with anyone using pdfs. Beginners and experienced users will find it useful and perfect for almost every job. If you can imagine something you want to do to a pdf, then Acrobat can probably handle it.
- I hate how the Adobe Volume license works and how hard it is to find the right product license to use ... we have many licenses
- Sharing and editing documents is so much easier now with Adobe Acrobat DC.
- Being able to combine, re-order and edit PDF documents through this software has made our workflows and work processes so much more streamlined and efficient.
- I use Adobe Acrobat DC on a daily basis - and there isn't much I don't like about it!
- One-page reader helps to screen quickly through documents -- by far the best feature when looking through a 300-page annual report
- Highlighter is adequate
- Flexible toolbar lets you move it around to convenient places -- increases the ease of use
- Could add more standard features such as convert to Word.
- Comments could improve -- they aren't aesthetically pleasing or clear that there is a comment in the document.
- It often slows down my computer when I have multiple PDFs open.
- Dynamic. Changes the way you think about static word/pdf documents
- Deep. Has tons of things that can be done. From combining multiple pdf's into one or breaking up pdf workbooks into multiple single pages.
- Gives you an unlimited amount of tools to adjust and tweak forms to meet your business needs.
- The support for questions is a little outdated online. When you have a question about functionality the community FAQ's are for older versions.
- Adobe is a huge company so customer service support with registration issues is not very quick.
- It is not the cheapest product. But for a business use, it is invaluable.
- Edit PDFs directly
- Create a PDF with Office software
- Comparison between different PDFs
- The Pro version is quite expensive, especially the monthly one
- The Standard version has a license cost too similar to the Pro version (that almost does not explain the reason)
- The Standard version in addition to having the problem of the similar cost to the Pro lacks important functionality such as conversion or comparisons between PDFs
- Export PDF files to Word documents
- Editing PDF files at ease
- Viewing PDF files
- The app can be a little slow and somewhat laggy when you're importing or exporting big documents
- The application can be really difficult and confusing to use when you start using it for the first time
- Creating and editing PDF documents.
- Gives us a professional platform to provide information to our employees that they desire to read.
- Provides us with a one stop tool for everything related to PDF documents.
- When clicking "edit" in a PDF document it would be nice if DC would open automatically if you already have a license to use it.
- It would be nice to have a cleaner interface to add images.
- Working with text is a bit awkward and would be more efficient to have the window for font and size more accessible.
Review: "Adobe Acrobat DC - a fully functioning product, though at a high cost and high processing needs"
- Combine pdfs. It is helpful in combining multiple pdfs together for ease into one document.
- Split pdfs. On the opposite side, it is helpful to split one pdf into multiple documents for easier distribution to individuals associated with each section of a larger pdf.
- Comment on pdfs. It is helpful in making comments on pdf documents that can then be saved for personal reference or sharing with others.
- Program size. By far, the main drawback is that my computer does not have enough processing capability to handle. It is VERY slow to install and often slow to open too.
- Functionality. There are some types of commenting that the program does not handle as well (e.g., hand written comments that you want to try to put in with your mouse).
- Licenses. You only get two licenses with each subscription, which can make it expensive to implement in a large scale format.
- Being able to have a client or consultant sign a contract document is easily done in this program, or having it set up for them to use is one of the best things that this program does.
- The ease of conversion to PDF from other formats is also a great feature that this program does easily and allows for the use of basically one program when all is said and done.
- The way that DC interacts with other Adobe products is also a plus.
- I think back saving or compatibility with other ADOBE READER products is something that I have had a problem with, so if other users dont have DC, they cant necessarily open the PDF if they need to make edits.
- The user interface is not friendly to those who arent familiar with Adobe products.
- Sharing files back and forth in the cloud is extremely easy.
- Setting different limitations and privacy on documents between users has never been easier.
- Editing PDFs and contributing to them isn't nearly as frustrating as it used to be. The editing tools are self-explanatory and easy to find.
- I would like more options for individual add-on features.
- There is literally nothing else that needs improvement in Adobe Acrobat DC.
- Makes it easy to sign/complete documents that are not fillable.
- Eliminates the need for ink/pens.
- Easy access from anywhere and no crashes.
- Easy to use functionality.
- Drastic updates to versions.
- Not intuitive.
- Price point is too high for many users.
In addition, the majority of executives at my firm work remotely and often need to sign documents, invoices, etc. So the signable PDF from either a desktop or mobile device incredibly improves the efficiency of getting a needed signature. It's a big time saver to not have to do an "old school" scan, save to my desktop and email the document, to then have the signer do the same on their end.
- The signature mobile app lets anyone sign an existing PDF document, providing efficiency when needing signatures from colleagues who work remotely.
- The feature that allows you to add or edit text in the original font is incredibly helpful. Before, you could add text to a PDF, but if you didn't have the same fonts on your system, an already built-in font was used instead, creating a non-uniformed document. So once edits were made, you had to recreate the entire PDF.
- The Photoshop capability to scan documents is convenient, especially when traveling and need to send documents such as expense reports.
- Expanding the license to allow the program to be installed on more than two PCs.
- Better editing and organizing capabilities from Androids.
- Add an "undo" function.
- Adobe Acrobat is an excellent way to convert Word, Excel, images, or text files into a PDF that can be emailed or printed.
- Adobe Acrobat is used to change a document to grayscale, change the resolution, alter text and images.
- It is a great tool for proofing. You can send an email to a client, and they can insert notes into the PDF, and email it back to you.
- I would like to see Adobe Acrobat be more user-friendly.
