Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

I have typically used Acrobat to read, comment, and make light edits to PDF files. Additionally, I use Acrobat with Clients, as our software exports proof reviews into Acrobat PDF files. Acrobat is a trusted standard that makes it easy to create, edit and share pdf files. I’m not an Illustrator power user, so Acrobat is much more approachable to me.
  • PDF creation
  • PDF reviewing
  • Light editing
  • Better ability to import formatting from a pdf created in word.
  • Better integration with proofing tools.
  • Version compare tools
  • Light editing
  • Viewing
  • Simple authoring
  • Time saved for pdf editing
  • No need to use more complex tools like Illustrator or InDesign for simple authoring and editing.
  • PDF viewing
I think it works well for pdf viewing on mobile. For my prefererence, desktop/laptop is still best for authoring and editing.
I do not typically have to do encryption when sharing.
I don’t think Acrobat has any legitimate competitors in the space. It is the industry standard and I have not really used any competitors.

Did implementation of Adobe Acrobat go as expected?


Would you buy Adobe Acrobat again?


If you need to do simple pdf creation, light editing, and conversions from other authoring tools like word, I think Acrobat is great, especially if you are not a professional designer. Acrobat makes it easy to engage with pdf files. That is the use case and it handles it quite well.
