Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC
We use Adobe Acrobat DC mostly to edit and update PDF documents. We get a lot of recurring assets in support of events that we need to update dates on year after year in addition to word processing documents and contracts that need periodic updates. Adobe Acrobat DC makes it simple to update those when the native files are inaccessible.
- Making quick edits to existing documents.
- Managing fillable fields and signatures.
- Preparing files for print.
- I find Adobe's document management strangely confusing.
- OCR is great feature, but it could still use some improvement.
- Is an expensive utility if not bundled with one of Adobe's other suites.
- Saves us from having to recreate assets we already have access to.
- Reduces time spent on print preparation.
- Allows us to mix and match documents from other sources.
It is generally pretty easy to get used to using Adobe Acrobat DC for its core capabilities. Moving across devices or document management in the cloud is sometimes hard as we're managing cloud documents so other platforms and Adobe doesn't top that list. Still, it's hard to imagine doing work without it.
I'm glad Adobe invests in security and compliance, but I can't say how it has impacted us. We haven't had an Adobe-related breach, so maybe that's the best thing I can say about it.
I'm not sure that Acrobat has a direct competitor? The PDF file format is pretty standard and, though other programs can make them, editing and organizing them is not an experience I would want to try in any other program.

Adobe Acrobat DC is a really valuable utility for lots of things in our office. We use it to preflight documents for print purposes. Adobe Acrobat DC makes it easy to see color separations and make sure everything is in the proper channel. We also use it to update documents from previous years even when we don't have native file options. We use it to save and send documents that require fillable information and to generally work with PDFs as that is a fairly ubiquitous file format. I think of Acrobat as a Pro tool and there are some things it tries to do that I think are better suited to other utilities. For instance, I'd rather interact with Docusign for contract signings than try to manage contract documents with Acrobat. Overall though, I'm very happy with how Acrobat integrates into our workflows.
