What do you like best?

The best thing that this software can give you is the flexibility that no other PDF reader gives you. The best PDF reader that is available in the market right now and it is hard to deny the fact. The ability to edit pdfs, annotate them, sign them and export them as a Word Doc is very easy. We can easily open it in any browser for viewing and you can use this software flawlessly during presentations as well. To open multiple windows at a time and switch between them is very easy and it doesn't take away your processing speed as such. It is also easy to combine two or multiple pdf files into one using this Adobe Acrobat Reader. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There aren't too many things to dislike as it has the flawless functionalities and one thing I feel it should have done better is the pricing. It is too expensive for people with small companies to afford. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a pdf reader and if you have a small team then this is for you. It's easy to use and easy to adapt. Adobe Pro is a bit costly but it is worth buying if you can afford it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used Adobe Acrobat reader to make presentations and prepare or edit proper PDF files. I used it to teach and read books which are in PDF format with ease. The Fullscreen mode or Read mode available is one of the best in the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Acrobat Reader supera con creces lo que puedo hacer cualquier otra herramienta de gestión PDF. Es muy fácil visualizar documentos a través de ésta herramienta, utilizando como funciones como el resaltado de texto la función de miniaturas. También me gusta porque me permite subir los documentos a la nube de Adobe y que puedan ser compartidor fácilmente a través de enlaces. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Acrobat Reader es una versión gratuita, por lo que carece de herramientas de edición PDF, sin embargo, está lleno de funciones para la lectura. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Adobe Acrobat Reader helps me make and edit simple graphics and marketing materials. I love that I can share and make comments on pieces that need edits as well. With that, people can understand the edits I suggest in real time. I also love the ability to export and send quickly, as well as the way I can crop and edit pages easily. I also love that I can link out to other documents or webpages to create a single living document. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the downsides of this program include the slow speed it can often have - lagging behind my edits. Sometimes others do not have access to Adobe Acrobat - it works best when you can communicate through the program. I wish I could make the PDFs more interactive. Often when I make sections linkable, it looks out of place and others might not know the link is there if I hide it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I believe using the paid version is best when it comes to this. I also recommend it to be used within teams! It makes it easy to share editing comments and suggestions, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Editing other ministry's PDFs are done with ease, and there is no more back and forth with the original designer. I also enjoy that I can easily communicate the edits I need to make and why - within the document and alongside the content. For business problems, Adobe Acrobat helps us stay on brand and consistent across every piece we print or distribute. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best thing I love in Adobe Acrobat is PDF editing and compiling PDF forms for further text processing.

It is very attractive for the simplicity of the interface and its accessibility. Attractive design, quite a lot of functions and user-oriented, which allows it to work comfortably.

It ought to be remarked the ability of the program to work with complex files of a large size, also unique functions that make the work easier and more original. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to refine the interface of the program in which there are definite lacks, more precisely, these are windows for definite program functions that can not be moved and expanded.

Also a very important feature that cares me personally when you copying the PDF forms it is no unique name of this forms. Then you need to rename a large number of fores long. Otherwise, the text in the created form is repeated in all the copied forms.

Also what I would like to refine, it`s put windows with functions into a separate panel that made it also moveable and conveniently disposed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend this program since it is one of the best programs in PDF editing and i think the best. Set of features and ease of use will help you in your successful work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program helped me to create complex files and lists that are easy to edit without using complex graphics programs. Thanks to Adobe Acrobat, these files can be permanently edited on a tablet, smartphone or computer using simple PDF editors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love the PDFs...they are so easy to share with others, and so easy for others to view. I use them in my day to day work, and have the best experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a program to help you create, manipulate, print, and manage files in Portable Document Format, then Adobe is the best program for you, and once you begin using it you will understand why. Adobe has been around since 1993, and I have used it for several different things, and the ease of use is just beautiful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a property management company, so when one of our clients wants to see an inspection of their home, and the file is too big to send through our system, we can simply covert it to a PDF in Adobe and move forward with no issues. We are able to share the inspections easily and quickly this way. Also, if you are printing a document, but you find that you also want to save it as a PDF, Adobe Acrobat is the perfect program for that. It is so simple and easy to use, I really do not think anyone would be disappointed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Acrobat Reader is easy to navigate software. For example, it is easy to find where all the functions are as they are located as toolbars around the reader. I also like to have a thumbnail view of the pages, because they help me to have an effective reading. Another important factor is that I can upload the documents to the cloud and generate links that I can share. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like best about Acrobat Reader is its toolbar. For example, it has functions to print, increase or decrease the resolution of the pages, add sticky notes or add signatures. Another interesting feature of this software is its reading mode function, which allows me to see the pages in a very clear way. Also, I discovered that there are different font styles for signatures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

My only problem with Acrobat Reader is the constant messages to buy the professional version. It is annoying that the software opens its page in the browser with the purchase page. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The main reason to use Adobe Acrobat reader is that it handles large files very easily and smoothly. We can open multiple files at once and can switch in between randomly. The text-to-speech mode that will read documents out loud for you give fill of Kindle. It has signature options where anyone can add their signature to the documents. Other editing tools like adding sticky notes, highlight or editing text and Images too, copy image are also great to use. Drawing markup tools are very simple to use and very important for Mechanical design industry, because it have lots of tools to highlight text by adding different shapes within words. We can add audio in comments which can help someone for explaining. We can open accidentally closed documents, which is really good. Adobe itself recommends different tools every time, which makes user to make its high use. We can merge lots of documents in single file. We can protect our files by adding password, which is I think best thing that Adobe gives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing which looks frustrating is the availability of different tools within your purchase package or subscription. If you want to use professional features, then its bit pricey. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What not to recommend.. Do people have any other best option than Adobe. By default Everyone prefers Adobe only. There are some other readers like Google docs or Foxit Reader and Slim PDF. But you can't get this user experience which Adobe gives. Its somewhere costly but highly recommended. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am working in design field, so to give markups on engineering drawings, i always prefer highlighting and comment tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Adobe Reader also causes it to be painless to reorganize as well as set up the PDF pages of yours and so I could personalize the PDF to the needs of mine. You are able to decide to protect the PDF document of yours with a person password. I love the reality you are able to personalize your security options (e.g. just perspective or even make changes) by choosing what alternative document drivers are able to do with the PDF file.

What do you like best?

Although it requires a while to begin, both small and large files can be conveniently opened, I can't easily manage them as various other pdf people do. Zoom functionality is user friendly, and I can run too easily. One more thing I usually use when modifying my written documents would be the editing of text. The page rotation within the Acrobat Reader requires almost no time in file that is large, that's, I could do this quickly at all. I can export, marginalise, edit, organise so on with a tiny effort, like some other PDF readers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Waiting-patiently! You've making it fast when I start a large or small file. In order to open it will take too long. Sometimes it crushes when I exercise way too long. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I'd been using the application for a while, so it works perfectly for me, I understand exactly where I could find the instruments of mine, one more point is its premium cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I will find everything in the hand of mine when I use the software program. It's user friendly. I forgot to save the work of mine, often a program crashes, when I worked a long time in the past. Thus, the tip of mine to save time for the work of yours, unless you lose several of the job of yours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
