Reviewed on 18/7/2022

Pros

The most influential features are editing images and texts, in addition to the many options in the program that facilitate the user to use and save time and effort, yes the product is easy to use, integration with my existing business processes is easy.

Cons

There are no features that I may feel that I am missing when using or how much they have been improved. The developers are creative and do not want the user to think of any feature unless they have already added it. It is great, there are no aspects of the product that are difficult to use, integration with my work processes was easy.

Adobe Acrobat DC - Your one-stop shop for creating, editing, and organizing PDF documents.

Reviewed on 25/6/2022

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC is my go-to software for creating, editing, organizing, and signing PDF documents. It's easy to rearrange pages and edit text or add comments.

Cons

Once you sign a document you can't make any changes even if you were the original creator of the PDF. I have run into problems with this after signing forms and then needing to make changes after the fact.

Handling PDF formatted documents with greater versatility as a word processor

This tool has been successful in my professional life, since most of the interaction with documents for the generation and presentation of reports uses an Adobe Acrobat DC as main means, the inclusion of these new features allows to facilitate the review and highlight the most important ideas. important or the most common mistakes in a job, as well as the ability to customize a job in such a way as to prevent the plagiarism of the document.

Pros

The most interesting of this version are the new properties that range from its innovative presentation and appearance, to the possibility of creating notes and underlining ideas that highlight comments we make to the text we are reading, the Acrobat Reader DC program also allows you to incorporate our electronic signature documents or your initials and send the form electronically tool that persnalizes and improves the development and intellectual property also uses intelligent auto-filling that allows to simplify and increase the speed of the work that is done. Finally it is highlighted that by working with this program you can facilitate the storage of documents on the Adobe Document Cloud, Box, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive platforms, thus increasing the possibility of safeguarding and sharing our work, it should be noted that this version passes Directly from PDF to Word files directly something that is very positive.

Cons

The installation of the program usually takes too long and the file in my opinion could be less heavy, also to work optimally must be the PC or mobile phone connected to the Internet and the latest version of the program must be updated , on the other hand, the options assistant can be optimized to provide the user with greater resources when producing or editing a document from the PC, other difficulties of the program can be found in the MENU when we go to our PRFERENCES, there to be able to optimize the program and improve the work experience requires a certain level of office management, being to my trial a complicated situation to handle between the user with little experience in handling PDF and the facilities presented by the Acrobat Reader file DC in this new presentation.

I am very happy with Adobe Acrobat DC. I will continue to use it gathering daily signatures from my team

Pros

I needed a tool that enabled me to convert MS Excel spreadsheets into a PDF that I could edit and then easily distribute to my team for signatures at the end of each work day. This application checked all of those boxes.

Cons

The application can sometimes run fairly slow, depending on the size of the document you are converting.

Adobe Acrobat DC seems so cool for me as it made document viewing and editing easier and simple. I recommend it as i have used it for ages. If you want secured files, you can use electronic signature and encrypt your files as well.

Pros

Adobe Acrobat DC is not prone to crashing and is extremely responsive. The security feature is also highly reliable. There are numerous editing options available. Adobe Suit is a programme that works with Adobe Photoshop. The digital signature function is excellent.

Cons

If you are unfamiliar with Adobe products, the interface will take some time to get used to. If you are not using it for work , it's not the cheapest. You can't modify the password for the digital sign.
Toolbar size can be modified by the user simply moving the toolbar instead of sticking to the top.
