Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

I use Adobe Acrobat DC for a lot of documentation. Part of my job is processing contracts, invoices, and payments. Almost all of that documentation is in Adobe Acrobat DC. Adobe Acrobat DC's feature of allowing online signatures is a game-changer for online approvals in a post-pandemic remote working environment. I also convert my word processor and spreadsheets to PDF using Adobe Acrobat DC for version control purposes.
  • e-signatures
  • Combining / pruning documents
  • Keeping version control for sensitive documents
  • I sometimes feel like the program uses too much memory, so opening multiple windows can be a hassle for my PC
  • Sometimes, the optical character recognition takes a while to kick in
  • The file size reduction is a bit clunky and non-intuitive
  • e-signatures
  • Combining / pruning documents
  • Locking documents / version control
  • Increased document security due to version control
  • Reduction in errors due to version control
  • Time efficiency due to the multiple tasks Adobe Acrobat can perform
I mostly use it on my laptop and not on my mobile devices. So, I am not sure about user experience across platforms. However, based on my experience of usage on the laptop, the usability is fairly good. Can it be more intuitive in certain areas? Yes. However, if you have been using the software for some time like I have, most functionalities are easy to remember.

Do you think Adobe Acrobat delivers good value for the price?

Adobe Acrobat DC is great for working with documents. In my work, PDFs are a big thing. Adobe Acrobat DC is still the best software for me to work with PDFs. It is also great for converting Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files to PDF. I also use the e-signature function quite a lot. Adobe Acrobat DC does a good job of making this easy to use. Adobe Acrobat DC can be a bit memory-heavy. So, multi-tasking in it can be an issue. But I am not sure if that is a limitation of Adobe Acrobat DC or my laptop. Also, for some reason, I am never able to effectively reduce file sizes in Adobe Acrobat DC. This functionality needs to be more intuitive.
