Overall Satisfaction with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is used by the entire organization for documents, pdfs. It's used for forms, writeable so that you don't have to actually sign and print a physical copy, you can just fill it in all online. It's also used to edit pdfs, which is what I really love about it. It solves the problem of forms being saved in pdfs that were otherwise uneditable, but now with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, instead of asking the sender to revise and resend, I can just edit it on my own.
  • Their writeable forms are fantastic for moving to paperless, and are especially helpful when we are working remotely
  • The editing feature is helpful to make changes to pdfs that have errors
  • It's also great to convert other files to pdfs, since a lot of places only take certain file-types. PDFs are pretty widely accepted, so I love the convert to pdf feature.
  • When you want to convert a file to a pdf, instead of being able to right click and just select convert to pdf and it happening, now it makes you open adobe and then you have to click create and convert to pdf. It takes more steps now than it used to, I'm not sure why that is.
  • I really don't have many complaints, I love Reader
  • Writeable forms (we use a lot of forms for various things in higher-education)
  • Converting to PDF, certain files must be saved as PDFs
  • Editing PDFs, I get sent PDFs that sometimes need small changes and the editing feature is clutch
  • Made work easier for admin personnel who deal with these PDF forms a lot
  • I think it's been a positive impact, though I don't personally have access to any numbers that would say so, speaking with my colleagues we all use it frequently
I haven't really used any other product like this, the closest I would say is Word, though word just doesn't have the same features that Adobe does.

Would you buy Adobe Acrobat Reader again?


I would highly recommend it for making/editing PDFs. It's easy to use and I love the clean simple look of it. It's super for this task. Also for making/using writeable forms. If you want to go paperless, use Adobe Acrobat Reader to create and send writeable forms instead. Even if you find Word easier to use, or are more comfortable with that, if you need to send the file as a PDF you can easily convert with Adobe.
