What I'd like to know is: how much do the recent updates differentiate the Acrobat DC (continuous) app from the Acrobat DC 2017 perpetual license app?

Should have option for 0 stars. Crooks. Subscription price almost doubled in 1 year. Current app is a POS; Acrobat Pro 9 was their best, but 32 bit. Their current subscription model is pure greed.

Please Adobe, FIRE the entire Acrobat coding team. You're obviously running the runts in that room because the good programmers are working on other CC apps. Going from something as super as Acrobat 9 or 10 to this unstable, constantly crashing (a few times daily) shite, needs constant attention with deleting Font Caches, and it is all totally unacceptable. I've put up with it now for nearly 2 years (having loved the previous generations back to the late 1990s). The UI interface is just plain horrible, unintuitive, and is bloody slow compared to Apple's own PDF preview within Metal. Needs put out to pasture forthwith. F-

New version 19 still stinks! Subscription based, really too expensive. Will run on Catalina despite it still has 32bit elements buried in it. Look to Affinity Publisher as a fantastic, inexpensive, powerful alternative.

• 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.

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.

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.

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.

*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.

Company ignoring all the user feedback, clearly has it's own agenda for the software. Clumsy, un-intuitive, illogical etc etc - users' feedbacks consistent in their message to Adobe? Response? More of the same. Perhaps deliberate? Been using Acrobat since very early days, Still using Pro 9 as many (incl myself) believe it represents Acrobat at its best - good GUI, stable and "just works". Hey Adobe - anyone listening?

It's not the first time that an update isn't available from and doesn't show in the Creative Cloud app even when it's been posted here, and even though it addresses 'customer issues and security vulnerabilities' according to the installer. What a piece of shit that CC app. Okay, here goes the manual install. Again.

After version 9, I recommend to those clients who need to use Acrobat (for 100% compatibility with business partners) to forget the Mac version and use the Windows version. Most them run a Windows virtual machine all day long anyways (for MS Office, Exchange, Quickbooks, etc) so they are used to mixed environment. From a practical standpoint, it's fine, but from a philosophical standpoint, it irks me to have to say to clients they are better off running a Windows app than a Mac app, and it's not like this is some oddball business requirement... this is PDF, which irony of ironies, Apple was a big part of making it a standard document exchange format in the first place, with its adoption of Postscript, Display postscript and making Adobe so successful in the early days of Desktop Publishing.

For those that can get by with lightweight PDF functionality (annotating, adding signatures), the basic free version of Nitro PDF on Windows works well; it's more than a reader, but doesn't have all the kitchen sink features of the high end.

I've tried PDFPen Pro and others for the Mac, to date, IMO, they just don't cut it (yet). Compatibility issues increase as the complexity of the documents increase, and my clients can not afford the embarrassment of exchanging files with partners that do use Acrobat, which don't look right or sometimes don't even load. And for the price of PDFPenPRo, it's almost the same as getting a license for Acrobat for Windows, so may as well go for the Acrobat for Windows and eliminate the file compatibility issues.

Adobe has announced a Security Bulletin announcing "critical  vulnerabilities" in the following versions of Acrobat and Reader.: DC: 15.017.20053 and earlier versions DC Classic: 15.006.30201 and earlier version XI Desktop: 11.0.17 and earlier versions Presumably, DC version 2015.020.20039 addresses these vulnerabilities. Although, note that it is dated September 30th. Further security bulletins will be posted at: https://helpx.adobe.com/security.html

The update for Acrobat Pro 11.0.14 for Mac does not work. I received the following error message: The Installation failed. The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. I have tried it on three different Macs with the previous version 11.0.03 installed. All received the same error message. Not a good start to the year for Adobe and Mac :-)

This version of Acrobat is very solid. The UI is much better than in the past. The ability to search for tools is very nice too. The OCR recognition is very good too! If you have prior versions, the upgrade is worth it.

Version 11.0.13 is "blinky" on El Cap 10.11.01. I get screen flashes when it is open. And no, I'm not going to 'upgrade' to CC or DC or whatever they call it to "fix" it. Shareholders before users? No thanks. There are still a lot of users who spend their own money on software, it's not an expense, it's not a tax write-off, it's not covered by someone else's budget, and there isn't a fat cat client to pick up the tab. This means I try every possible alternative to Adobe products until I can ditch them for good. (Thank you Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo!—I will never buy Illustrator again and I am gradually coming off Photoshop CS6).

Ok I feel better now.

Pining for the brilliance of the stable, customisable, intuitive days of ACROBAT PRO 9...

...yuh know, those halcyon days when you could actually get stuff done without 3 crashes a day, plus tweak the sensible interface to your heart's content.

Whichever/whomever wannabe-Mensa candidate at Adobe who was given the reins of the Acrobat project after 9, has created the start of this utter spiral of destruction with the insanely unstable XI, and then completely flailed in the wind with this uber-abortion called DC should be taken outside and... [insert punishment].

Arrogant Adobe at its utter worst. Shameful.

This is a completely unusable update. I uninstalled it once (since you cannot have both DC and XI installed at the same time) and just uninstalled it a second time after giving it another go. Everything that used to take one step, like opening a file, now takes two slower steps. Confusing file management windows pop up and can't be turned off. The final blow came today when I discovered that QuickView no longer worked in the Mail program. Wake up, Adobe!

Adobe completely lost track of user's needs when planning Acrobat DC. The interface is unintuitive and unpractical, and you cannot customize it except for very few options – much less than 9, X or XI. The first DC release crashed very often and Adobe support was not able to offer concrete solutions (as one can verify from Adobe forums). Open and Save dialogs have permanent problems. DC keeps converting to readable any PDF you open, no matter if you want this or not. Critical tools, as OCR, save as DOC or XLS, were not improved at all. Needed improvements, as impositions, resize control or a better crop tool, were forgotten. Not enough, Adobe marketing and support keeps announcing as 'new' tools one already have in version XI, as editable sidebar and customizable sequences. I am one of the several users who tried it and went back to Acrobat XI. Unhappily, the 15.008 update does not addresses most of the problems, thus XI is still the better choice.

This latest major update to Acrobat is completely awful / messed-up / off-track. The new interface is one of the most unintuitive son-of-a-guns I have ever seen. I've been using it for over a few months now, and just cannot believe how it has departed from any interface standards. The icons, the windows, the tool bars are useless. You have to work at it (Acrobat) every time you use it, whereas your thoughts should be on the document you're working with. MAJOR FAIL!!!

It finally dawned on me where Adobe is going with all these cloud based applications. Large information service providers of all kinds have been moving to the cloud for some years now. Companies like Microsoft and Oracle and IBM offer IT services to these and others that reduce or even eliminate the need for them to have their own IT departments. Software and updates as well as data storage services are provided remotely in the cloud so that they don't have to be maintained and supported locally. Following this trend Adobe has been assiduously developing cloud services for creative professionals; hosting their apps in the cloud is an essential part of this strategy. The reason this is so important is that in order to provide their services in a consistent and reliable manner they need their clients to have the same versions of their applications, all with the latest updates installed. Microsoft began to move their software to the cloud with Office 360, though they've not been as ruthless as Adobe in coercing people to use it – though Microsoft also provides a variety of remote services. Outlook has long operated that way. Now they are planning Windows 10 as a service, providing updates and upgrades via the cloud, which will enable them to likewise keep their products consistent and, one hopes, reliable on every desktop, laptop, game console and remote device. This will replace the periodic release of new versions of Windows, that were the bane of every large IT department. Which may explain why they finally provided iOS versions of their office applications. It's consistent with their Windows everywhere meme. Apple has their own version of this strategy. All of their software and software updates are hosted in the cloud. Apple has been even more brutal than Microsoft and even Adobe in cutting off support for legacy software. Now that they've released Photos for Yosemite, iPhoto is no longer available, even for earlier versions of OS X – for which Photos is not available. They make Adobe seem like a virtual paragon of customer concern. Sadly, Apple's cloud services are among the weakest and most underdeveloped out there. Doing it right is no longer part of their gestalt. Before this I hadn't understood the full context of Adobe's product strategy. Unfortunately the fact that security in the cloud is still tenuous at best hasn't slowed development of cloud services noticeably for anyone. Caveat emptor.

The Cloud Requirement prevents me from going 11.xxx. I sail and do not have 24/7 connectivity to the cloud. The subscription registration is crap. Adobe won't suffer without my $20 a month, but I won't feel bad about not giving to them either. Like WordPerfect, WordStar, Corel Paint, et al, your working for the corner.

Not the best application for PDF reading and annotating (I use Skim for that) but still indispensable for processing/editing/optimizing PDFs. In an attempt to get rid of my dependency of overpriced and ugly Adobe software I tried combinations of various Mac PDF processing tools (PDFpen, PDF Squeezer and similar) but none of them gets the job properly done. I don’t like Acrobat, it can get really slow and some releases are rather buggy, but if you are working with PDFs on a professional level there is – unfortunately – no alternative.

Long time user but this latest release (11) is buggy. Crashes frequently when searching or for any number of other unknown reasons (and not just me - widely reported in various forums). When it works it works well. Unfortunately the very frequent crashes make it difficult to rate this well. Newest version (11.0.7) reports bug fixes but release notes not available on line so I don't know whether these issues have been addressed.

Trying to get help on the Adobe site is impossible. with version 10 I have had to use work arounds for some of Acrobat's other features, but this update is a dead end.

Been using Acrobat Pro X (CS6) for a while and yesterday, I started getting "Configuration Error) messages: "Please uninstall and reinstall the product. If this problem still occurs, please contact Adobe technical support for help, and mention the error code shown at the bottom of this screen. Error: 6 http://www.adobe.com/support/" A detailed search on Adobe's support pages, forums (fora) and more broadly on the web failed to produce a solution (various 3rd party solutions, and one of Adobe's) was to delete particular files buried in various folders that Adobe installs like a train smash on your computer. None worked, none of the 3rd party solution, so the only choice I had was Adobe's colution - reinstall CS6 to fix the "Configuration Error 6" that I can't even determine exactly what it is or what has coused it. Reinstallation of Acrobat Pro and no surprises, "Configuration Error 6" re-emerges, on a full CS 6 install. If anyone has any solutions, or even an idea, please reply or post something here. As you may imagine, I will be talking to Adobe Australia today asking for a solution to this appalling and indefensible situation. My humble opinion - like so many previous peoples' posts - avoid this g*d-awful garbage software. If I could give it 0 stars, I would.

I purchased Acrobat 10 on September 17. If I want to update to 11 it will cost me $200! I guess this is just the way updates sometime work but (a) I think it sucks; and (b) I'm not giving Adobe another penny!

There may be no viable alternatives to Acrobat Pro, but come on, Adobe, this is version 11 and you still don't have tabs and palettes like the rest of the CS6 apps? And why can I still not page down after zooming in, then back out, on a page? Or save a Word doc as a PDF and retain hyperlinks, as I can in Windows? Adobe charged something like $299 to upgrade from Pro 9 to Pro X, and they want another $299 to upgrade from Pro X to Pro XI, and for what?

They can't be serious...$299 for an "updater"? And for such an impoverished set of new "features"? Wow. Just wow. I'll pass.

I must have spent thousands on Acrobat Pro over the years... still, the Mac version is far from feature parity with Windows. This is especially aggravating since there is no "Standard" version for the Mac, only "Pro". To anyone who has seen version 11 for the Mac: Does the Microsoft Office to PDF conversion now work as expected (meaning, does it include clickable hyperlinks and other meta information)? or is it still just a glorified wrapper around "Print to PDF"?

Very good app, PDF is a standart and Adobe Acrobat Pro gives us huge power to make OCR, reduce size, organize and batch process, it even has better support than Apple because still it's compatible with Mac OS X Leopard when Apple even updates require Lion these days, way to go Apple, the only remarks I have with this app is eForms should have better support for bar codes and qr codes and it should be more scriptable with support of Mac OS X folder actions/Apple scripts.

I use Adobe Acrobat professionally and love it BUT... WT_ is Adobe doing making such a pathetic installer? This is BY FAR the worse installer for a major app that I have seen in many years (personally for me... ever). I just had to do an uninstall and reinstall to get it to update and Acrobat ended up in an INVISIBLE folder with a self created path consisting of many empty folders! WT_ F?!

The new Safari plugins work great, however, they did not get installed with this update. After looking for them in the Library folders, I realized they were no where to be found. It did install the Firefox plugins however. So I had to use Pacifist to extract the plugins from the installer package and manually put them in place.

How about this? "Unlike 8.x and 9.x, 10.x update and patch installers are now cumulative as follows: Macintosh quarterlies are always cumulative to the base release and ***you can install the latest version over any previous version."*** Finally, you don't have to download and update every single patch! Adobe is listening. How about that?

I've been using Acrobat Pro X since it rolled out with OS X 10.6 and 10.7. The first thing to credit Adobe is they actually bring us the most powerful PDF editor software for Macs. Acrobat equipts with the un-competingable multi-languages OCR, digital signature, and so on. However, it's also far behind most popular Mac softwares, OmniGraffle, for instance, to provide intuitive UI and user experience. For example, Acrobat seems not have multi-processes at the same time. Hence, once you have some OCR processing, you lose the ability to read/editor other PDFs at the same time. It's quite disappointing. In addition, OCR PDFs do not totally play well with OS X's PDF Kits. I note that once these OCR PDFs are saved by Previews, the OCR txt are gone forever. Some PDF created by Acrobat have problem while scrolling with other Mac PDF reader, i.e. Previews, Skim. These pages will somehow delay while you try to scroll up and down. Touchpad gestures are mostly useless in Acrobat. You cannot simply zoom in/out by pinching your fingers. The Bookmarks feature seems a little bit doom. If it could adopt the (Shift-)TAB key to (un)indent the current editing bookmark. That would be fantacy. Another wish for Acrobat is the the support for multiprocessors. I am currently using Intel's i5/7 processors. Acrobat fails to use the power of CPU. Even in OCR processing, the CPU loading for Acrobat somehow stay only around 100% instead of 7xx% like Handbreak does. That's not good enough.

Is it correct, that this 300$ software can not remember the place where I left, reading a pdf file. So on the next opening of the same file it would start at the place I left. I'm baffled that most iOS apps seem capable of this, but on the mac desktop it is impossible? Ok, I can use a bookmark, but that is a few unnecessary clicks and also Acrobat pro does not store the view (e.g. if I had it fullscreen, return to full-screen; if I had a two-page view, return to that as well). Crazy times. GoodReader on iOS does all that and more without a blink. Maybe there's just not enough competition on the desktop? Thankful to anybody who can name some reasons for this insanity.

One of the worst update systems of all applications!! Must apply each update as it is released and if you alter (i.e. add a plugin the next updater doesn't 'like' you'll have to go back and completely reinstall Acrobat and apply every single updater one-at-a-time again!! Can't live without Adobe and you can't live with them! My rating is ONLY for the updater. I give the Acrobat Pro app 5 stars.

Ok, this last update 10.0.2 was a tiny update and actually easy to upgrade. It looks like Adobe FINALLY decided to bless us after all this time with a manageable update process. I'd probably be more happy about it except for the fact it took them a very long time to stop the extremely stupid habits of before. That said, as a public service I should let everyone know that 10.0.2 was very helpful in fixes major stablility issues I was having with it. It was freezing up whenever I tried to open PDF's created with MS Work 2011. If Adobe keeps this up, I might even forgive them for that horrid update practice they kept up for so long at our expense.... some day.

Acrobat X Prof is fine except for printing. My default printer is set for duplex. Acrobat refuses to recognize that, always printing on one side of each sheet. Also, when I choose a printer other than my default printer, Acrobat won't change back to the default the next time I print. I have Acrobat X Prof on W7 running in VMware. Duplex and default printers work just fine. That is disappointing, but to have a button for text recognition is just great.

If I use TouchUP tools (edit object), than I can't edit any image. I have this: Acrobat cannot start the image editing application you've specified. Verify the image editing application location on the TouchUP panel in Preferences. I verifyed, but nothing happend. If I do again, I see the location is in the app, not over the app. Please chage it very fast, because I need it! I don't reinstall Acrobat or Photoshop, give me other solution:)

It failed to install because of a "case-sensitive" volume issue. I simply cannot believe we still need to care about cases to install software. Adobe should list a "case-insensitive" volume as one of installation requirements.

I have had a brief test of this new version on my friend's computer. Honestly, I should say it improves a lot than its previous version. There is one feature is really impressive in this new version: how good when you save your pdf file into word document. This feature has been improved greatly than older version including version 9.

What's going on with Adobe? A brand new, you-beaut v10 of Acrobat and we should all switch to Windows to try out the demo before we part with our money? Are Mac users now tarred with the 'unimportant brush', or is there some other reason we don't get a demo to test Adobe's claims? Questions, questions, questions ...

A crock! I have Acrobat 9.3.4 installed (as part of CS4) and the updater fails (error 1301) telling me the application has been modified (it hasn't - vanilla install ex Adobe DVD CS4). Able to update Reader to 9.4 easily enough. Tried to update from within Acrobat and that failed also, predictably. Amazing to think Adobe can't write software to update Adobe software. Zero stars for poor software.

I wish Adobe would create a combo updater that would update any previous 9.x version to the current. It is time-consuming to sequentially update each version patch if you have a workgroup of Macs to update.

NOTE: DO NOT UPDATE your Acrobat 8 Professional to the new security patch 8.2.4. There is a bug in the code that prevents you from opening Acrobat (message window states you must first open another Suite application, but that makes no difference). At this date (9-21-10), Adobe has not issued or even acknowledged the bug. What support there is from them has you reinstall the program from your original CD/DVD discs, then make subsequent updates short of version 8.2.4...not a very delightful experience. Once again, Adobe shows Mac users that we're still a second-rate citizen in their development world...oh, but please continue to use Flash!!! *** DO NOT LET THE AUTO UPDATER INSTALL THIS PATCH!! *** (foretold is forewarned ;-) /

This 9.3.2 updater and the Adobe Reader updater went irretrievably off the rails for both of my Macs, which don't have Adobe's internet browser plug-in enabled, forcing restarts Each time, I got an unclickable, unselectable window in the middle of the updater asking if I wanted to use the plug-in/repair my install. And there I was stuck, thanks so much Adobe. This company's updaters are unbelievably lame, leaving me to wonder this time if my Acrobat Pro and Reader 9.3.2 installs are alright. Pathetic.

I'm with you on this one, Misha. Most other devs manage to write updates that work on their own, but Adobe has to be special and force us all to go the full incremental path. Almost as if they were somehow making money from the extra downloads they're generating with their weird update program. Come on Adobe! If Apple can do it and many, many smaller devs can do it, what's wrong with you guys?

Alternative (and superior, imho) app for OCR: Abbyy Finereader Express. Bonus - Works beautifully in conjunction with Fuji ScanSnap and is a fraction of the cost of Acrobat at $99.00. You can find it here: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/32172/abbyy-finereader-express You can fill out forms, overlay text, graphics, draw on, and edit pdfs with any number of free or low cost alternative apps.

What's the point of continuing to pipe money into the Adobe coffers? Adobe's products are bloated, their installers stink, and they have lousy response time for resolving reported issues. There are several free or inexpensive PDF applications out there. My favorite is PDFpenPro, which is a fraction of the price, faster and more Mac like than anything Adobe has to offer. Adobe is trying to appease share holders...it's only a matter of time before the public picks up on this. Enterprise environments have a huge stake in Adobe products (read: they're stuck). Consumers and freelance/SOHO users are not. Don Montalvo, TX

The announcement of an 'update' entices hordes of people to take advantage of it. Again, wait before you jump in. The outcome is a repeat of the update to 9.2 in mid-2009. Check Adobe's forums. It's the same old problem. The update is successful for some and doesn't do squat for others. If you'll look at the Adobe forums, you'll see that weeks go by w/o a comment form Adobe staff, then a newbee tier 1 house elf begins to address the issue anew with the same old rote suggestions that didn't work before. Does Adobe care - doesn't seem to. In my case, when I try to update from 9.2 (yes, I was one of those who finally got the update to work after literally weeks of hit and miss tries), I get the same message I got from my initial attempts to go from 9.1 to 9.2 - the update failed because some kind of modification was detected (not). I am then referred to what is called the 'Adobe support website' for more information (non-existent) or I am invited to completely un-install and re-install the app. I actually tried that again, retrograding back to 9.0.0, which resulted in the same error message when the new update was attempted. Thanks Adobe. Using a mid-2009 MacPro with plenty of ram and OS 10.6.2

Adobe ranks right up there with M$ re customer satisfaction is concerned as far as I am concerned - after using Macs for 25+ years, only Adobe and M$ give me so much grief.

Adobe is a bureaucratic shocker on this, with poorly named upgrades and lack of real documentation. I remember in OS9 DLing an Adobe PS Printer Driver, every link on the web and stage of archive had a different obscure name. Then when I finally got to the installer it was brilliantly named "USA"! You have to wonder at the minds behind this. You will have to step through every single update one by one to get to the latest.

I used Adobe Updater and it worked without any problems. This is in 10.6.1 set to English on a MacBook Pro 2,2. Also, saving as Adobe PDF finally seems to work. (I never got it to work reliably after updating to 10.6 where there is no Adobe PDF printer anymore. Now we have the Print > PDF > Save as Adobe PDF function, which had big problems - hopefully my impression that those are fixed now is correct!)

Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.2 update fail to upgrade 9.1.3 to 9.2 properly. Same failure as mentioned above. The error dialog read "Update failed. The patch has failed because the application has been modified since it was originally installed (for example, plug-ins may have been disabled). Please go to the Adobe support website for more information regarding how to re-enable disabled components prior to installing the patch. Or, you can install and reinstall the application, and then reinstall the patch." Adobe Reader update to 9.2 run fine. I have seen this failure in many places around the net.

It tried everything: reinstalling, logging form a different user account etc.. no it will not update... it scares me for my setup mostly.. because seriously I hardly ever use Acrobat... but what is this error that so may seem to encounter and that is so "mysterious". ADOBE wake up... you are annoying us. Can't it be more precise.. error, like what has supposedly changed form my original install.. when I have just reinstalled like 2mn prior ???!

I've been using (or should I say 'trying'?) this app for several years now since version 7. Version 7 was the only one, that seemed to be stable. 8 (updates incl.) crashed very often and sometimes even forced me to reboot. Considering the price this is very frustrating. The demo of version 9 is not much better. It crashes upon quit. (Regardless of any activated fonts or extensions!)
