Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is our go-to software for the development and editing of PDF documents. We have found that it is significantly easier to use than other programs claiming to be able to perform the same tasks. For the most part, they do not perform all the same tasks, and the ones they can perform are much more complicated. Adobe Acrobat DC is the gold standard. It is not inexpensive, but well worth the investment is you need this type of software.
  • Editing of PDFs
  • Inserting graphics
  • Adding or removing pages
  • At times the editing is clunky, selects too many words, etc.
  • Fonts are a little hard to change
  • Signature option could be smoother
  • Much faster turnaround of projects
  • Clean, concise quotes
  • Easy to organize work
The names escape me, but if you google "Edit PDFs" you will get dozens of free and some paid programs. I have used several of these and none of them come close to the features and benefits that Adobe Acrobat DC has. You will spend more of your valuable time trying to figure out how to make the other programs worthwhile than you would be saving in software costs.
I am rating Adobe Acrobat DC as highly as I can because there is really no other program out there that performs as well and is as user-friendly as Adobe Acrobat DC. It is the gold standard, and well worth the investment in my opinion. If you need to work with PDF documents as part of your workday, there really is no other option.

Would you buy Adobe Acrobat DC again?


I have used 3 or 4 different PDF editing tools, and none come close to the power and overall ease of Adobe Acrobat DC. Often we receive quotes in PDF format that we need to modify or select sections to place into a new quote. We can perform these tasks effortlessly with Adobe Acrobat DC.

If you just need to read PDFs or do very minimal editing, then just use the Adobe Reader, which is free.
