Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

Our office uses Acrobat DC in order to create forms that go out to our clients. We also use it when we need to edit information that comes in on PDFs from others (co-workers, customers, etc). It's really helpful to be able to open up Acrobat DC and convert files as needed. Adobe Acrobat has an OCR scanning function that allows all text within a PDF document to translate to searchable text within your files. We also use it when we need to digitally sign documents between departments, or even to add our signatures or initials to documents to show we've reviewed them.
  • OCR recognition
  • File conversion
  • PDF editing
  • Expensive
  • Can give errors while editing PDF files.
  • Not many professional alternatives.
  • Always available.
  • Easy to access.
  • Saves time when really needed.
Websites like and other free PDF editing programs have been tried out. There are so many garbage PDF editing add ons and extensions out there nowadays that it's getting easier and easier to just open Acrobat DC.

Honestly, I prefer to use simple PDF editing websites when I am able because they are able to split PDF files, edit them, convert them, and more, but sometimes using Acrobat DC is required. The learning curve is pretty high—not all of my coworkers would be able to open it up and edit a file quickly. We do really appreciate the OCR recognition built-in, this helps us out a lot in maintaining our files and being able to search them retroactively.
