I do a lot of technical documentation and the ability to put data into a format where it can be used by readers on a variety of devices and with different reading capabilities makes PDFs the best choice. I’ll take As-Built drawings and put them into PDF format then edit with this.

It's super easy for Adobe Acrobat to create PDFs from other file types. We use it daily for this purpose. For instance, a financial advisor might need to create a one-page document to distribute about an event, at which case we would then create it using Adobe Acrobat. If the document needs to have more design elements in it, then it would not be appropriate.

Adobe Acrobat was critical for me while I was in college and doing internships as I worked as a graphic/web designer. It made exporting proper files really quick and easy. My uses for it with my current job are slightly different, but it is an integral part of my daily work day, and I can imagine not having access to it.

Adobe has a lot of power, but it also utilizes a lot of system resources. It would be nice if there was an option that didn't have to run in the background all the time. Adobe DC is a little slow when it comes to just viewing PDF files, therefore I have two programs installed.

Adobe Acrobat DC is an ideal all-in-one PDF file editing and management tool for anyone who regularly deals with PDF files, which we believe includes most people working in an office environment. The software is probably overkill for businesses or persons that only occasionally need to edit PDF documents or convert MS Word or PowerPoint files to PDF.

I use it to build manuals - all the various pieces come from multiple files, and it is easy to create on the final product, so I just need to choose the right one and print it. I also use it to assemble a document for an expense - I take the PDF receipt and add payment confirmation emails or web snips to make one document per transaction with all the bits the finance office wants.

Adobe Acrobat DC is well-suited for analyzing soft copies, especially if you have qualitative data that runs into hundreds of pages. It supports a variety of extensions making life easier for analysts. It works quite well if you use it on a touch-screen device as the stylus support makes it very handy to highlight important parts and add annotations and comments.

Digital transformation, documentation, and policy sharing to employees. Project documentation, policies and HR manuals, and technical documentation for the products. Cumbersome Diagrams can be converted to pdf and saved for future reference. Large presentation files can now also be converted into PDF and used by Acrobat DC. Multiple images can also be scanned and converted into PDF using Acrobat DC.

We use Adobe Acrobat DC all the time, especially for correspondence and contract signing with people outside of our organization. It gives us peace of mind, knowing the recipient can't change the document.

PDFs are great for sharing between users that don't have access to shared software. Users are able to open PDFs regardless of whether or not they have the same software that the file was created. Users are able to markup the PDF and share it with others making editing more efficient. The only scenario I am hesitant about sending PDFs in is occasionally with specific colors that need to be printed. Sometimes it's better to send live files in scenarios where color needs to be exact.
