Adobe Acrobat DC Comments

Great as always

Positive Comment by DinaHaines
about Adobe Acrobat DC Jan 2017

Acrobat has always towered above all rival PDF software, and the latest version is the best upgrade in years (custom essay writing service).
Adobe Document Cloud, its apps and applications look like a very good start, but you may want to wait a bit before jumping in with anything other than Fill & Sign.
Pros:
Efficient new interface. Major improvements in OCR and text-editing. Document Cloud service includes built-in PDF signing and routing. Mobile Acrobat DC apps convert photos into PDF forms.

about Adobe Acrobat DC Jun 2011

Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended impressed me today with how small a PDF file it makes. Tweeked the settings carefully and got an A4 page B/W 300dpi - 20Kb. Other PDF software was gobbling up disk space, especially the free stuff that came with the Lexmark printer.
