Before, there isn’t much that people can do with PDF files except to scroll up and down, and read them. Adobe Reader DC changes the game with its bunch of helpful features that allow more than just scrolling, reading, and randomly marking PDF files. With this productivity tool, users can now edit, convert, and even sign important documents without having to print hard copies.
Do more than just edit
Adobe has long addressed its users’ cry for editing tools when using its PDF reader, but alas, simply being able to put comments and e-signatures are not enough if people are chasing after convenience and efficiency. Acrobat Reader DC, therefore, extends its reach and now allows users to do more than just posting comments and signing documents. The software has three main features, with commenting and annotating tools of course automatically included as one of them as well as converting PDF files to other file formats. As for the other two features, they are Acrobat Reader mobile and Adobe Document Cloud.
The mobile version allows people to be able to perform and apply edits using their mobile devices in the same way they can when using the software’s desktop version. However, what makes Acrobat Reader mobile special is its ability to convert printed documents and other texts into PDF files by simply taking a picture using the device’s camera. This includes texts written on paper and whiteboards, as well as tiny notes and receipts. Users will no longer need a scanner to save softcopies of their documents.
All PDF files can, in turn, be saved in the Adobe Document Cloud. Acrobat Reader DC is connected to this cloud storage to make it easier for users to access their PDF files anywhere and anytime they need to. In addition to that, users can also connect and upload items in other cloud storages like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
Intuitive and straightforward
Acrobat Reader DC’s interface is very easy to use and understand. All of its tools can be found under the Tools tab and are divided into three categories namely, Create & Edit, Review & Approve, and Forms & Signatures. Dropdown options are located below each icon, giving you the option to either open a PDF file or add and apply extra features like password protection and stamps. A search bar is also available should users wish to locate tools faster instead of having to browse through the selection.
As for opening PDF files, Acrobat Reader DC continues to be responsive to the same controls. Users can still enjoy seamless navigation by scrolling up and down, as well as hop from one page to another without any hassle. Zooming in to read small texts does not deteriorate the file’s quality, thus ensuring that the words are still a hundred percent readable.
The only PDF reader for you
Acrobat Reader DC is everyone’s top choice for a PDF reader. The additional tools are, without a doubt, very useful and make the software even more flexible. With its ability to upload files in cloud storage, secure PDFs with passwords, and being available for use in mobile devices, Acrobat Reader is definitely a must-have tool.
