View PDF documents.

Overview

Adobe Acrobat Reader allows users to view PDF documents. You may not know what a PDF file is, but you've probably come across one at some point. PDF files are used by companies and even the IRS to distribute documentation and other pieces of information about their products, and Adobe Acrobat Reader is the essential interpreter. Acrobat integrates directly with your Web browser, so if you come across a PDF document on the Web, you can view it directly from within your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser window. Acrobat also makes printing much more practical, by guaranteeing that the printout will look exactly like it does on your screen.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software is the free global standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents.

And now, it's connected to the Adobe Document Cloud − making it easier than ever to work across computers and mobile devices.

It's the only PDF viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.

The full name of this dog is Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Yes, the infamous and detested Acrobat DC. So I installed it as a test to see how it compares to DC Pro, and it's just as bad. The program opens with an index of all the PDFs opened on your Mac since the Age of Dinosaurs. The viewer window is dominated by a big, red "Convert" button which apparently installs a 30-day trial of Acrobat DC Pro, and an optional "Sign In" on the top right. The Save As window is especially confusing, with a couple of online options you might not even have. To save normally requires pressing a second, "Other" button. Like Pitbull, I immediately deleted it using the free AppCleaner app (a must-have, 5-star utility).

Only ever install this briefly for something critical that doesn't work properly in Preview - use it, then delete it.

That... talks about the flash player, not the acrobat reader?

It automatically launched with every restart of the mac; and I could only "force-quit" out of it with the Activity Monitor.

New Reader v19 installer demands macOS 10.11, but this page claims it works with 10.9 and later. Still a good thing I don't let MUD auto-install such updates!

When the update was installed it took away the possibility to view panoramas running Quick Time 7. Now I have to waste time reinstalling the previous version that worked fine. Also have to tell my customers why they can't view the panoramas. Have now disabled Macupdates. What a waste of time!

As we know, Adobe Reader is buggy, insecure bloatware; I keep an old version around for just one task: to determine which fonts are embedded in a PDF. Preview doesn't give this information, neither do Skim or PDFpen. Does anybody know of a free PDF viewer which can show this information? Also helpful would be a PDF viewer which allows wildcard searches; so far as I can tell from Adobe's chaotic website, Reader does not, nor do Preview or Skim.

Use pdffonts.
pdffonts is part of the poppler package which is easiest to install via homebrew. Basically, you go to the homebrew website and copy and paste the one-line installation script. At that point, you will have a proper package manager for OS X.
Then you can install pdffonts using:
brew install poppler

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.

Don't use the DC version of Adobe but rather the 11.0.22 version since I don't do subscriptions. If you want the 11.02 version look here and don't download off of the link provided by MU. Go here https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/11/11.0.22.html#elevenzerozerotwentytwo
