Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

I used it to review my translations after it has been put into the final PDF format. We do a final review of the project already in its final layout, and it always has some small changes, so the review option in Adobe Acrobat DC is one the best ways to do it.
  • Review text for changes
  • Highlight text for changes
  • Make it easy for a group of people to suggest changes in a PDF file
  • It could have an option for online collaboration where all people working on the same project would see the changes in real-time
  • The price of the product is not very attractive at the moment
  • It could have a function that makes the verification of changes faster to do
  • Comment features
  • Digital signature
  • Online space for forms and comments by the users
  • The process of final PDF verification with Adobe Acrobat DC is about 50% faster the doing it by email comments.
  • We used to make the request for changes by email, and it was a very slow process. Now with PDF comments, it is much faster.
  • The only thing that is missing is a way to make a final verification for the changes suggested.
I do not use Adobe Acrobat DC on many devices. I only use it on a laptop, but I know that the PDF files it makes can be read on any device, and it will not change the way it looks or the way it is formatted, even using different devices.
PDF Expert is only better than Adobe Acrobat DC when I need to edit a PDF directly in the PDF file. Adobe Acrobat DC can't deal very well with PDF editing directly in the PDF. It is more for reading and marking changes and forms, not for editing pdfs.

No

Yes

Did Adobe Acrobat live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of Adobe Acrobat go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Adobe Acrobat again?

No

It is very good for changes in PDF text, where you can highlight the text and suggest changes. Now for editing PDFs or changing the PDF layout or format, Adobe Acrobat DC is not very good and is actually not suited at all.
