Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is used to open, review, and sign documents as well as share information online with current employees and students. The commenting features are used to collect meaningful feedback on creative projects such as flyers and posters and make sure that less time is spent in meetings or reviewing emails and more time is spent making improvements.
  • Lets anyone review and mark up a document
  • Creates a universal file that can be opened on PC, Mac, or Mobile
  • Tracks digital signatures and forms
  • Adding some basic document/file editing capabilities for free would be great
  • Files are often overly large when including any photos or media
  • Creating an accessible file is too complex
  • Comments
  • Form Fields
  • Signatures
  • It saves time on feedback
  • It reduces errors in forms and paperwork by limiting what the submitter can change

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is great for cross-platform sharing of static files that do not need to be changed or collaborated on. It works well as a file-based form management tool and allows users to easily fill in data and submit a completed form. It's great for annotation and commenting without requiring paid software (such as Microsoft Office).

Using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

The main issues or limitations with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC usually stem from the device or OS rather than the software or document. Complaints typically arise when contributors use a different app to view or edit, which is understandably outside of Adobe's control. It would be helpful if the ability to open and fill a PDF was built into the OS, but that's more of a licensing issue than anything else.
