Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat DC

Adobe Acrobat DC is essential to both print production (sending design files and reviewing proofs) and working internally with my team on fillable PDFs or feedback on pdf files. Fillable forms PDFs are created with Acrobat, and design file PDFs can be commented on and then updated. I love Acrobat for signing files as well. You can reorder pages and do minor edits if needed.
  • Create fillable pdf forms
  • Prep PDFs for print production
  • Combine multiple PDFs into one
  • Add your signature
  • Provide comments in pdf file
  • Make minor edits to text or graphics
  • Allow easier create outline of fonts
  • Provide tracked comment functionality
  • High resolution pdfs
  • Fillable form fields
  • Signature areas
  • Form compliance on test taking
  • Feedback from internal users
  • Conference print PDFs for ROI
9 only because some functions like tracked comments are best in MS Word vs Acrobat and outlining fonts for print PDFs is easier via a design program before you export to a PDF.
Acrobat handles PDFs securely through Adobe Creative Cloud file sharing and allows fillable forms to be securely read-only or locked for editing if needed. Password protection is an added feature.
Adobe Acrobat DC is the end product software used to complete print projects. Most vendors require a pdf only so it’s a necessary tool to learn.

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


Are you happy with Adobe Acrobat's feature set?


Did Adobe Acrobat live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Adobe Acrobat go as expected?


Would you buy Adobe Acrobat again?


PDFs are created either using Acrobat or other design programs (either by Adobe or Microsoft) and are essential for sending files to vendors or colleagues. For more extensive collaboration and content editing, I would not use Acrobat and instead use MS Word and then create a pdf when the content has been finalized.
