Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC
Adobe Acrobat DC is the cornerstone software of our company. It would be impossible to run our business without it. We scan documents to pdfs and then need to do heavy editing including deleting, rotating, inserting, OCRing, bookmarking, combining, creating portfolios for printing, bates stamping, cropping, and Print to Adobe to tweak files. I cannot emphasize enough the critical importance of Acrobat to our day-to-day functions. We use it ALL the time and Most of the time.
- Edit pdfs
- Render pdfs searchable
- Print large volumes of pdfs in one fell swoop with portfolio
- In recent years, it allows you to edit pdf files by inserting text, moving text around, crop to name a few
- resize native pdf files to 8 x 11 by using the print to adobe function
- make adobe acrobat and one-time purchase option. I hate subscription software so I am still using the last version released.
- editing pdfs in all ways - critical
- ocr the pdf files to make them searchable and bookmarking
- optimizing the pdf files to make them smaller in size without compromising the quality of the file
- Increase operational efficiencies exponentially
- immense flexibility as almost all software programs allow you to save as a pdf
- easy transfer of digital files because pdfs are a compressed format.
Honestly I almost always only use acrobat on my desktop computer because other mobile devices are too cumbersome for me to work on due to the small and limited size of the screen and lack of keyboard so I can't speak to this question beyond that.
Ironically, the security and compliance standards have presented a problem to my business. In my business, we need to manipulate pdf files for the production of documents and other goals. When we receive a pdf file that has been locked it is a pain because we cant combined or alter that file. Often we have to print out and rescan it. So for our business, this has been a disadvantage.
Acrobat is the gold standard. It is the Cadillac of pdf software packages. PDFCreator is a good solid program that will work well in environments that need the basic pdf acrobat functions. It is a much better price point too. But if you need all the bells and whistles, I have only found it in Acrobat.

In this day and age, in my opinion, every workplace should have adobe acrobat and not just the free reader version. I have a few clients who only use the reader version and they ask me to do some simple tasks, such as combining two pdfs into one or reducing the size of a pdf using optimize. A simple 1-minute task that they can't do without an acrobat.
