I tried Acrobat DC over the past week and I have now gotten rid of it. There are several reasons 1) much of this app is still 32 BIT, when I talked to support about potential issues with Mojave I was told Adobe had no timetable for correcting this. 2) This app is horribly slow! I have the top of the line 2017 5K Retina iMac with 64 GIGs of RAM running Mojave 10.14.1. To open a 32 page, non-scanned PDF it took over 90seconds as it was "preparing the document for reading." After this prep work I saved the file and reopened it and the same operation was initiated. Why? 3) Acrobat is horrible at reading a document to you. The voices are terrible and at times difficult to understand. If you choose to use the Mac's voice capabilities, there are no instructions on how to do it. First you have to disable the apps default voice, then you must disable the default rate and volume, if you don't the Mac voice will be seriously distorted. 4) I found the support to be less than helpful, and somewhat hostile when asked about the 32 BIT components. The attitude towards trying to correct some of the problems was dismissive of my abilities to manage my own Mac. Finally, if you want see how bad this app is, try PDF Expert, or even Apple's default reader and you will find the they will open any PDF almost instantly. They read your PDF without special prep. And, above all THERE IS NO SUBSCRIPTION to an app that is horribly deficient.

It looks like Acrobat Pro is finally entirely 64 bit!

• That $14.99? It's for the PRO version. It's PER MONTH. And you have to commit for a year. • The Standard version is $12.99 PER MONTH, with a year commitment. Move along to better apps and deals is my suggestion.

Yes, it's hideously expensive. And it's still, overall, better than all of the alternatives. PDF Expert is pretty good, but it doesn't have OCR. PDFPen Pro has OCR, but is quirky and a bit more difficult to use than PDF Expert. ABBYY FineReader has by far the best OCR, but it can't really edit PDFs, and the Mac version is far behind the Windows version and hasn't been updated in a very long time.

Left Adobe last year and only run the reader on my Mac and this why "Acrobat DC is available only as a part of Adobe Creative Cloud, and can only be installed and/or updated through Adobe's Creative Cloud app." No standalone apps. Hope they lose business because of this stupid business decision.

Hi DragonMaster.
Thanks for your comment. You are absolutely right in every point. And that Adobe is still incapable to deliver pure 64bit applications isn't only a shame, no, I will say it is insolence!
And about the subscription licence – over all this behaviour indicates more and more that it cares for stable income, but is absolutely contra-productive for customers and useful required product development and support!
Luckily I'm independent and not part of a big agency or company so I don't have t use any Adobe products further on. I completely switch to other software from Affinity (Designer, Photo, Publisher), Readdle (PDFexpert), Bohemian (Sketch), etc.
From my point of view all this companies have a fair licence model. And like Steve Job said: „I like to have options."

That all said. PDF Expert lacks many important features that are integral to Adobe Acrobat Pro. For example image OCR.

Readdle claims OCR for PDF Expert is forthcoming soon. Perhaps so. But they told me the same a year ago. Time will tell.

Despite its flaws, which are far more extreme for you than they are for me, there really is no good substitute for professional PDF editing with addons such as PitStop and Kodak Prinergy tools. Apple's preview, for example, can't correctly display transparency and overprints in a PDF, and there is no separations preview. Preview is fine for the basics, however.

What the hell does this even mean? A new version number for Acrobat and Acrobat Reader - Starting in November 2017, all customers on the Acrobat DC Continuous track will move from 17.xx to 18.xx after the latest patch is deployed. There will be no change for customers on the Acrobat DC Classic track. There is a new version but it's not part of the Cloud yet? I don't get it.

This is the new flash as this german news article correctly states: https://www.heise.de/security/meldung/Patchday-Adobe-Acrobat-und-Reader-sind-das-neue-Flash-3890424.html This update alone closes 62 CVE security vulnerabilites. That is a good thing. But if your code is that broken, the best advice is: do not use this software.

Long time user. Always thought the GUI was strange compared to other Adobe products but the redone version is too ridiculous. Takes a day to set up and the icons are terrible. What a horribly executed piece of software. Who approved this mess?

*AHEM* Version 17.009.20058 of Adobe Acrobat is INSECURE. It was released April 4, 2017. This means MU is WAY behind reporting Acrobat updates.

August 8th 2017 Adobe will have released a SECURITY PATCHED new version of both Acrobat and Reader that patches major security holes! BE CERTAIN TO UPDATE August 8th ! ! !

I find the program a vast improvement over prior Acrobat products for the Mac and enjoy using it. . One of the features that is very helpful relates to correcting recognized text. Basically, after you OCR a document that may be unclear, there may be errors. This feature allows you to go in and fix the errors. The find your tools feature allows you to type in the tool you are looking for and then select it. For example, if you can't remember that the Enhanced Scan tool is used to OCR a document, you can type OCR and the correct tool appears. There is an additional cost for using the Adobe Cloud, but that function allows you to sync and mark up documents and view those changes on different devices. If you don't want to use that service, you can use Dropbox. The ability to change theme to Dark Grey is just a small touch but very nice. There are a series of videos at https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/tutorials.html#fundamentals where you can learn more about the app. This app does a lot of things with a PDF that Apple's preview does not do. For example, Bates numbering documents or redacting text from a PDF before providing it to another person is a very useful feature in the legal community. In some ways this app may seem like a semi truck to get you around the neighborhood. However, when you work with PDFs all the time and need to encrypt them, mark them up, OCR them, share them, comment on and review them, etc., it is an incredibly powerful tool. You do pay for it but, like any tools that help you with your work, there is a cost benefit to it. For me, it is indispensable and worth the effort of getting to know it.
