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.

Thanks to this application I have been able to underline files sent to me in pdf, making it much easier for me to understand a particular topic, in addition to this it has helped me when doing group work to underline the information more easily and to understand the information more easily.

Pros

What I like most about Adobe Acrobat is its ease of use, the free tools it offers allow you to highlight within the document, in turn facilitates the organization of documents, if necessary facilitates the ability to electronically sign the work.

Cons

Editing files in pdf format is not free, you have to pay to use this tool, it is also easier to edit files in other formats and not have to pay to do so.

While there are many things I don't like about Acrobat, there's no other tool with the same level of functionality. I'm captive, but not for good reasons.

Pros

It's the most robust tool for PDF managing and editing. It has everything you need for content management and technical tasks. Very complete.

Cons

It's not as easy to use as modern-day applications. Annotation in desktop has always been bad. Browser integration is always messy.

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.

Great pack of features

Reviewed on 2024/04/03

Pros

It gives you the chance to edit PDFs, which is certainly a super useful feature, and it also helps convert to/from PDF.
It's also very useful that it has an electronic signature feature that makes our lives easier as we're constantly asking our clients to sign on our Order Confirmations or Quotes and the good news is they don't need to have a license to do so. Related to it, it's quite useful that all the documents sent for signature are uploaded to the cloud, as it gives you the opportunity to modify who can sign, send reminders, etc.

Cons

I think that it's not that intuitive, especially since they changed the overall view and layout for the electronic signature.
Occasionally, after I send a document for signature, the program freezes and sometimes you need to shut it via the Task Manager.
Lastly, when converting a PDF into an editable file, the special characters are sometimes not interpreted correctly, so you spend a lot of time fixing this.

The Standard For A Reason

Reviewed on 2024/05/30

Pros

Adobe is relatively easy to use and employees usually have experience with the product.

Cons

A lot of the features are hidden behind the pro version which is extremely expensive so not worth the upgrade unless you would use those features daily.
