Adobe Acrobat helps us to manage our PDF database with ease and efficiency. It has largely simplified the process of creating, editing, converting, and sharing PDFs with our team members. Digitally signing different forms is yet another major merit of this software. It is a user-friendly application that has revolutionised the entire process of managing, editing & searching the enterprise data.
  • Ease of use
  • Great security features
  • Functional tools for editing, merging the documents
  • Best tool for PDF viewing
  • Expensive
  • Content editing is tricky
  • Limited features
We have been using this application seamlessly across the organisation and it has made our lives much easier when managing documents, filling out forms, merging and resizing the PDF files. Adobe Acrobat comes with a host of useful features that helps us organize the PDF files and make the most out of them.

Document standards,collaboration, security, paperless workflows, and accessibility are all addressed by Adobe Acrobat, which is used for creating, modifying, and safely sharing PDFs. Contracts, reports, presentations,forms,file conversion, web optimization, and multimedia integration are all included in the scope.
  • It provides accurate text, picture, and graphic editing capabilities inside PDFs while preserving formatting consistency.
  • Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are just a few of the file formats that Adobe Acrobat effectively transforms to PDFs while maintaining style and content.
  • It improves usability by converting scanned documents into editable and searchable PDFs with Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
  • Although Adobe has mobile apps, they are not as feature-rich as the desktop version, especially when it comes to intricate editing chores.
  • With a high learning curve for advanced functions like batch processing and complex editing, the UI might be intimidating to novice users.
  • For small enterprises or individual users that don't want all the advanced services, the subscription model may be expensive.
For managing legal documents, corporate reports, forms, collaboration, and accessibility compliance,Adobe Acrobatis a great tool. It is less suitable for highly dynamic contentdevelopment,intricate data analysis, and graphic design.

Adobe Acrobat is not just a software solution; it's a strategic asset the empowers our organization to overcome common document management challenges effectively. By addressing issues related to standardization, security, and organization, Adobe Acrobat enhances productivity, collaboration, and compliance within our workflow.

I use Adobe Acrobat specifically to review work documents, convert graphics into forms for distribution and creating files for approvals. The program works well with my graphic applications and, since I'm a designers, this is critical to my business. Adobe Acrobat forms the cornerstone of my work business. I have used it for years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
  • Converting Illustrator files into readable documents
  • Capturing stakeholder signatures
  • Allowing important items to be archived
  • The signature options can be a little confusing to use. The process needs to be a bit clearer or intuitive
  • The ability to edit copy needs to be a Biot more refined. Right now it's a bit clumsy
  • The option to add high resolution graphics to existing documents need to be better.
Adobe Acrobat is best for sharing graphic designs with people who do not have the native software to open graphic files. Adobe Acrobat is also great at capturing signatures for important documentation (like contracts, reviews, etc.). The software could improve its direct editing tools and make them a bit easier to use.

Adobe Acrobat has the most reliable PDF creation and document editing capability, with a friendly interface at the initial stage when getting started. Document splitting and also file merging through Adobe Acrobat are excellent, and the system provides helpful communication in real time through texting, and sharing files with team members is very simple.
  • New PDF creation tools.
  • Annotation options.
  • File conversion ability.
  • Document editing features.
  • Nothing serious after training but merging multiple files can be tricky.
  • Various files editing as a beginner.
  • Sharing big document can be slow.
Adobe Acrobat makes PDF editing and document scanning very easy. The ability to export files through multiple file formats is amazing, and the tool is a great one for batch file conversion, saving project time. The file preview functions are reliable, and the platform allows easy management of different project documents.

We use Adobe Acrobat daily to create, sign, and edit PDFs. These are our most common use cases, but we also use it quite frequently to send PDFs for comment as well. There is also a high likelihood that if we need a form created for our organization we will use Adobe Acrobat to create the form. Our organization uses PDFs so commonly that Adobe Acrobat is everyone's default PDF opener, reader, and editor.
  • The edit PDF tool is a game changer for our business. There is no other tool that is as easy to use for small, quick PDF edits.
  • Adobe Acrobat makes adding, deleting, and combining PDFs very simple and seamless.
  • The comment tools, and the function to share for my comments with my colleagues, makes it easy to collaborate with my team on the same PDF document.
  • Although I have used the tool to create and prepare forms, it can be a little clunky and not as intuitive to use as say other form and questionnaire tools on the market. It feels like I spend too much time trying to make and optimize the form.
  • The export PDF to other formats like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, image, etc. is sometimes hit or miss. I like using it to export to Word, but other formats just don't often work for me. It obviously depends on the document, but this feature is often rendered useless for me.
  • The redact features should be easier to use. I find this feature to be a bit confusing the first time I used it. And I don't use the feature enough so that every time I do use it, I need to relearn how to use it.
  • I wish that there were some additional snipping, copying, and pasting features for PDF documents that were included in the software.
If your organization uses PDFs frequently, then Adobe Acrobat feels like must-have. I could not imagine our organization not using it. The ability to create, organize, and edit PDFs easily and intuitively are the main reasons my organization uses it. The other additional functions and features are "nice to haves", but ultimately, don't impact our day-to-day.

We use Acrobat to send Illustrator artwork for review. It's easy to mark up with comments. We also occasionally use the signing feature of Acrobat as well to sign off on the artwork. I love that it's easy to export from Illustrator and the features are pretty easy to use as well.
  • Display artwork from Illustrator
  • Comments
  • Signing
  • Tools buttons and locations not intuitive
  • Page navigation recently moved and new location doesn't make sense
  • Occasionally parts of artwork display incorrectly if not fully zoomed in
Acrobat is the best option in the industry. It's not perfect but it's really good. It's an Adobe product so it integrates seamlessly with other Adobe applications. As a graphics professional it is great for displaying artwork, reviewing, commenting, and signing. It also makes large artwork files smaller for easy sending and display.

Adobe Acrobat is my first choice for working with PDF files. I can read and modify PDF files with ease. It is very good at converting PDFs to Word or Excel documents, as well as combining or splitting PDFs. It is widely used throughout the company addressing the challenge of efficient and versatile document management.
  • Electronic signature makes signing documents easy
  • Converting multiple format files into pdf
  • Sharing files
  • Filling our forms
  • Use of AI should be there
  • Reduce subscription charges
Viewing, creating, editing and combining PDFs are some of the most key and valuable features that are offered by Adobe Acrobat. Everyday at workplace, individuals need to review a lot of PDF files related to work and thus Adobe Acrobat is solving problems on a very large basis.

I've used Adobe Acrobat to mainly view PDF documents and sign if needed. In some cases I've used it for OCR capabilities. It's main usage has been sharing files with external stakeholders, wether its an invoice or PO that needs to be prepared we would leverage Adobe Acrobat. There is also quotes from the sales team which favour PDFs that can be used in Adobe Acrobat.
  • Converting file formats
  • OCR
  • Completing forms
  • Conversion from PDF
  • Collaboration tools like Google Sheets
  • Data extraction
Although Adobe Acrobat is a great tool there are many options that are free that offer the same service. If the service is free in tools that are already being used such as Google Docs or Drive then there isnt a need to use Adobe Acrobat. When it comes to signing documents we favour docusign and preview for internal signing.

We use Adobe Acrobat extensively for efficient document management. It provides many tools and features to solve challenges related to document, secure sharing and other daily tasks. It helps to create, edit and convert various file formats and ensure the compliance with the standards. All we need for the daily works about documents could get from this software.
  • Easily to edit files with many features
  • Could sign and block files easily
  • Support workflow and real time review and commenting
  • User interface should be improved. It is quite hard to new users
  • Improve the cloud service and mobile experience
  • Enhanced some collaboration features like commenting
Our team could easily make a final proposal together even though we were working from home without any distance issue and we got the best result like we work together at the office. It can be achieved because of provided features by Adobe Acrobat

Highly effective content creation and easy platform on documentation and data management capability is amazing. The creativity offered by this Adobe Acrobat tool is quite productive and very easy to generate reports and share files with various projects team members.

  • Document creation.
  • Easy sharing of files.
  • Publication.
  • Content creation is easy and reliable.
  • The multiple data management capability.
  • Many different project document creation.
  • The configuration of advance functions.

Adobe Acrobat is a key tool for our division as we deliver virtual trainings across the company and with external partners. We rely on Acrobat's robust PDF creation process to digitize materials from legacy projects, and to create guides for not only our staff who train but also the participants in the courses. Besides this use case, we utilize Adobe Acrobat as the primary reader for PDF documents across the company, and it helps to have a powerful tool that can have multiple documents open at once and also allow for collaborative note taking and productivity.
  • Creating and editing PDF documents
  • Commenting inside PDFs
  • Viewing multiple documents simultaneously
  • Viewing documents accessibly
  • Signing and filling in forms
  • It would be good if Adobe Acrobat could utilize less system resources. I have had crashes due to memory and CPU load this week
  • Quicker load times from a cold launch
  • Easier collaborative commenting for offline documents - knowing where and who wrote what
  • Ensuring documents don't have issues where text cannot be copied before publishing
While I would caution that Adobe Acrobat could lead to occasional system issues due to the amount of system resources required on low powered corporate laptops, these are rare. Acrobat is great for viewing PDFs and annotating. It's the perfect platform to create and edit PDFs, and it is easy to use as a team and share comments around as well. It also works well in trainings as we can have some documents open across multiple windows on both screens that are shared and not shared without unecessarily bogging down systems.

We use Adobe Acrobat as our main PDF Editor application. We use it to create, edit and especially optimize PDFs file size. As we work with projects that are very visual and a lot of times we have to share a PDF presentation of those projects to stakeholders either through e-mail or a specific platforma (that many times have file size limits), optimizing PDFs efficiently is very important for us.
  • Optimizing PDFs file size
  • Editing PDFs
  • Creating PDFs from other Docs formats
  • The User Interface can be Improved
  • It would be great if the Cloud Adobe Acrobat functions were more robust
  • The Optimization of the PDFs could have more user options
I recommend Adobe Acrobat because many companies already subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, so with that they already have a powerfull tool for their PDF editing needs at their hands. There are a lot of PDF editing sites and cloud services that are expensive and not so good as Adobe Acrobat, so for the companies that already have Adobe Creative Cloud, I see Adobe Acrobat as the way to go. However, if the company doesn't have Adobe Creative Cloud and don't need it for other software, maybe another PDF tool is better suited.

We use Acrobat in a variety of different ways in our organization. The main two uses for our team are in our marketing and sales efforts. Marketing we use it for one-pagers, case studies, whitepapers and more. For sales, it is our main source of building proposals for organizations. I would say that it is a tool that is used daily!
  • Sales proposals
  • Marketing pages
  • Case studies
  • Small files for sharing
  • Simpler small changes
  • Making one tiny change requires the pro version
  • I always struggle adding images
I think that most organizations are pretty well suited for using Adobe Acrobat. Any team that does lots of marketing or is trying to add sales I feel like having this tool is pretty much a must. No one wants to receive huge files of powerpoints or ugly word formatted sales presentations

Our organization uses Adobe Acrobat in order to view, to edit or to create a variety of PDF documents. Some of them serve as documentation serving various purposes, while others are forms that are then automatically sent to be digitally signed. We also use Adobe Acrobat to modify existing documents based on the needs, as long as they are not locked.
  • View PDF documents
  • Create PDF documents
  • Modify PDF documents
  • Prepare PDF documents for digital signature
  • Electronically sign PDF documents
  • Share PDF documents
  • Reliability and stability, particularly when it comes to the application's windowing (frames, sizing, etc...) and interaction with the operating system.
  • Accuracy when it comes to performing some term searches within a document ; for instance, for truncated words at end of lines or words with accents, capitals, special characters, etc...
  • Resources consumed by the application so it remains lightweight and efficient.
  • Additional improvements may be achieved when it comes to ease and speed of deployments, particularly from scripted environments.
  • Sudden application crashes or errors due to unknown application bugs.
  • Significant room for improvement of the intuitive and ergonomics factors, particularly when it comes to using the editing tools. For instance, to add text or objects within a document, the toolbars should be easier to use.
Adobe Acrobat is very well suited when it comes to generating documents which need to be digitally signed, making it extremely easy, convenient and conducive to promoting effective business or legal transactions that can be trusted thanks to the use of digital certificate which prevent falsification. The associated automation and notification features really help make everyone save an enormous amount of time and essentially eliminate the need to print, mail or fax documents.

In addition, Adobe Acrobat is obviously the originating leader of PDF document management and therefore sets the direction and support for the product and associated standard, so that is one important reason to trust and invest in the company's product line.

Adobe Acrobat is a standard desktop tool in our organization. I work for a company that is global and our international partners all use Adobe Acrobat because it is a reliable and consistent document application. Adobe Acrobat solves our problems with keeping documents authentic and original for our authors. We use Adobe as our source of record for all types of documents - Program management documents that range from proposals, statements of work, estimates, legal documents, and technical documents. These all need to be distributed globally. Many of these documents require digital signatures which is a key feature of Adobe Acrobat.
  • Reliable and consistent document creation
  • Clean, crisp, professional documents that are easily stored and distributed
  • Document size and images are compact and not problematic for storage
  • Versatile for all document types - Presentations, papers, images, technical and legal are some use cases
  • The digital signature feature can be quirky at times depending on the type of document. An easy tutorial may help.
  • Make Adobe more collaborative for multiple editors and authors
  • Provide more video tutorials about the features of Adobe for the user community
I honestly don't know who is not using Adobe Acrobat in the professional world. Adobe Acrobat is definitely suited for business and academia. I believe it is versatile enough to be used in the art world.

We use Acrobat to convert our draft Word documents to PDF files that can be filed with courts and sent to other parties. I signed these documents electronically using Acrobat's signature function. We also use Acrobat to review documents received from others, redact confidential information when producing documents, and search documents for relevant data.
  • Converts documents to and from Microsoft Word well.
  • Redacts information well.
  • It provides an excellent search function for native PDFs and a decent search for converted documents.
  • Being able to change the redaction style, from blocking to inserting text, could be made easier.
  • Keeping the user interface consistent through updates would be welcome so you don't have to relearn the location of functions.
We are a small law firm, and I find Acrobat to be an excellent program to assist us with our document-related jobs. It offers a comprehensive program to create PDFs, review them, compare them, combine them, redact them, etc. I use it for legal filings as well as recordkeeping (e.g., attaching invoice PDFs to transactions).

I use Adobe Acrobat for various purposes in my daily work. First of all opening some technical documents from suppliers, scientific papers. Besides, these I am using it for filling and signing some forms related to my daily work routine. Also, the function of combining various PDF files and editing existing PDF files, for instance, removing some pages, is quite handy.
  • Filling and signing forms
  • Editing PDF documents
  • Combining PDF documents
  • Sign in process to use my Adobe account
  • A simplified user interface
  • Making zooming to the documents easy
Adobe Acrobat is well suited for editing PDF documents and combining them. It is also well suited for filling and signing forms. I believe it is less appropriate if you are just only reading/viewing PDF documents. For this kind of workflow, you can use Adobe Reader, in my opinion.

In our organization, we extensively utilize Adobe Acrobat as a multifaceted solution for managing and adjusting PDF documents. The scope of our use case encompasses various departments, including finance, legal, human resources, and marketing. One primary function of Adobe Acrobat within our organization is its robust PDF creation and editing capabilities. We frequently generate professional-looking documents by converting various file formats into PDFs, ensuring consistency and compatibility across different platforms. This feature is particularly beneficial for creating reports, proposals, and official documents that require a polished and standardized appearance.

I work in the IT department and Acrobat is the software we support and deploy to users when they need something that can manipulate PDF's by adding text or editing pages. It seems to be a common software used between most companies and it is fairly easy for users to understand and operate.
  • Edit Text & Sections in PDF's
  • Allow to set fields for text submissions
  • Syncs to PC and or cloud
  • Some of the icons are no intuitive for users who don't go into the software much
  • The flow and layout of settings is odd compared to most programs
  • Sometimes it is hard to select certain items when trying to edit.
Adobe is well suited for users that constantly need to manipulate PDF's. This is chopping pages off, combining pages, or editing certain text and fields on a PDF. It is not needed for the basic user who just essentially needs the reader product for viewing purposes. Edge now has a build in viewer as well and there are some additional functions that suit majority of the users.

  • Manages sign-off of critical documents.
  • Merges and removes pages of PDFs as needed.
  • Allows redaction of sensitive information.
  • Some of these functions could be made available through Reader.

We use Acrobat on a daily basis to convert files to PDF, combine files, and for e-signing. This allows us to OCR files and provide our clients with complete discovery packages. PDF is the standard within the legal services industry, and Acrobat provides all the tools we need, including redactions and Bates numbering.
  • Convert documents to PDF.
  • OCR documents for search.
  • Redaction
  • E-signing
  • Bundling documents.
  • Search across Portfolios.
  • Redaction process could be simplified.
Acrobat is well suited for converting and combining documents for e-filing. It also works very well for e-signing. Acrobat has no functionality to create court/discovery packages with automated tables of content or other features. Overall, it is a great product, and Adobe seems to be updating features regularly.

We use it extensively for creating and editing all PDF documents, especially with e-signatures and formal documents. It also helps when we need to extract images from a received PDF, as well as combine multiple files into one document. The speed and ease of use have greatly increased turnaround and productivity over time. Asbjas is sharing documents for review and notes with customers.
  • Editing of PDF documents.
  • Combining multiple files.
  • Extracting pages from PDF files.
  • Collaborating and sharing notes with clients.
  • More editing options/settings for images when adding to a document.
  • Being able to type on top of a line rather than inserting into it and pushing it forward.
  • Bringing extract pages tool back to the forefront rather than a few clicks to get to it.
Extremely well suited for editing PDF files. Even when they have been scanned in with handwritten text. Very adept for any documents that require signature or feedback. Making collaboration quick and easy while looking very professional. Not as useful when you are trying to extract content from a PDF. Very hard to do this, especially for grabbing fonts or images when needed.

I mainly use the Adobe Acrobat platform while working with contracts. Specifically, in addition to the Reader function, I edit scripting as well as attach signatures and commentary on signed counter party provided contracts that need to be edited before further processing is needed as part of the contract management process.
  • Editing scanned documents.
  • Pulling text from individual documents.
  • AI application.
  • Natural language extraction in volume.
  • Contract lifecycle management.
Adobe Acrobat professional document platform is at its best when working with individual documents, editing basic language text, and extracting for manipulation and insertion/reinsertion. Where Adobe Acrobat professional document platform comes up short is when attempting to do all of the above at scale and volume. Also, users using this function would like to be able to store and manage contracts in the same platform - an ecosystem (that doesn't exist).

Adobe Acrobat is an essential part of my business. From receiving to preparing documents, there is no limit to what my company uses Adobe Acrobat. The most important aspect of this program is organizing important documents and sharing them with coworkers and clients. I have not yet run into an issue with Adobe that didn't work itself out right away.
  • Create PDF Documents
  • Preparing forms
  • Filling in and signing forms
  • Adding important comments
  • Organizing pages in a document
  • Simplify editing documents.
  • Removing certain items from a document.
  • Compressing documents.
I prepare legal court documents as well as real estate documents and contracts. I would be lost without this program. It virtually does everything I need to keep my documents updated and accessible. At times, it is difficult to keep the correct formatting when copying a document in Word into a PDF document. Otherwise, everything else is appropriate for my line of work.
