PDF editing with e-signatures and document review tools

About Adobe Acrobat

Adobe Acrobat is PDF editing software that can be used to create, convert and share PDF documents. It can convert documents in Microsoft Office formats to PDFs, and vice versa. Adobe Acrobat offers tools for remote collaboration, such as commenting, progress tracking, e-signatures, and more. PDFs can be viewed, annotated, and signed using the free Acrobat Reader mobile app.

To prevent the unauthorized access of sensitive PDFs, users can password-protect files on Adobe Acrobat. Editing features include reorder, rotate, crop, and delete pages within PDFs. Using OCR, Adobe Acrobat can instantly extract text from scanned documents to make them editable and searchable. Users can send PDFs to multiple people for viewing or to collect comments. Additionally, to streamline the document review process, a side-by-side comparison and filtering tool can highlight differences between two PDF versions.

Adobe Acrobat is surprisingly smooth, reliable, and a joy to work with for all your form editing, converting, sharing, signing needs.

Pros

I liked most that when its needed the most..its easy to access and simple to conduct the tasks needed. No other software out there for this purpose, works as well as this. This is my number one, go to software for these tasks. I have tried many.

Cons

Not a thing I could possibly say bad about this software. Number one choice!

I would expect the pioneers of PDF format to always be the benchmark -and i'm happy to say they are!You can expect frequent updates form Adobe and always easier ways to handle PDFs... it's the most feature rich handler i've used (And i've used many). HOWEVER - there are alot of very good competitors out there for a fraction of the cost of Adobe Acrobat with most of the features you find here. If you run a business or you're a professional where PDFs are a considerably important part of your workflow go for it. For everyone else, there are great free or cheaper options out there with all the functionality you want.

Pros

Frequent updates.All the features you can think of in terms of PDF workloads.Amazing file format conversion options.

Cons

Expensive.Editing text is a toss up for me - more times than not it feels like its a sib sluggish and accurate formatting to the original format isn't guaranteed.

Alternatives Considered

Foxit PDF Reader, Nitro and PDFelement

Reasons for Switching to Adobe Acrobat

Frequent Updates, Granular features and document signing and authentication options.

You get what you pay for, and what you get works fine. But most of the software's capability is only available if you pay for premium access.

Pros

Adobe Reader DC is ubiquitous, so it is always a program I use by default, even though I have PDF software I like better and use just as often. I keep it as default PDF software because there are certain websites I use often with interactive forms that do not support BlueBeam. Adobe is generic and for general access to PDFs it works well with little problem. If I want to manipulate the PDFs I flip to another software

Cons

Adobe DC is free, so of course the value for the money is commensurate with what I pay for it. But most of the features I want to use are only available in the cloud or behind the premum package paywall. The interface is set up to push you to use these added features, but without buying the professional package, they are useless to me, and I switch over to Bluebeam to do any serious manipulation of PDF material.

Since PDF files are supported everywhere it's essential to dealing with documents. Once when I bought a condo I had to send the Master Deed to my insurance agent but I only had a paper copy of the deed. Luckily our printer/scanner has a scan to PDF doc feature where it sends the produced doc to my e-mail address; a life saver. My day to day experience is typically just using Acrobat for reading documents, occasionally I'll encounter a document which is setup such that I can fill-in prepared form entries with just Acrobat Reader, PRO not required.

Pros

Standards are a good thing and PDF is the de facto standard for regular documents and Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and the pre-eminent PDF reader, it's use is a no brainer.

Cons

Adobe Acrobat Pro is needed for PDF creation or adhoc free editing. Acrobat Pro is too expensive for a casual user. Therefore typically only a few workers for whom document creating/editing is an essential part of their job have a Acrobat Pro license.
