Default Upgrade to Acrobat Pro DC

Here's a comparison to past versions. As you can see DC does not have to be run via the cloud. And you do not have to subscribe. You can buy a desktop version. I just upgraded from Acrobat Pro X. Not sure why, though.

The upgrade prices is $200 minus $1. Here is what qualifies: Acrobat XI or X Pro; Acrobat X Suite; Acrobat Standard DC, XI or X Standard.

BTW, I figured out the best way to navigate the Adobe site. I search for what I want on Google and click the link. Much better than trying to use the site's interface.

Interesting that Adobe now has a poorly-designed site and Corel has the better one.

First...not sure what happened but there was a duplicate of your thread so I deleted the other one...


I hate the Adobe site! They've made it very difficult to find things. I also am not in the least bit interested in the "DC" version of any of their software if Acrobat DC is anything as annoying at Reader DC. Don't get me started on the renaming of "Adobe Reader" to "Acrobat Reader" which just confuses the hell out of everyone--I think a better name would have been "Adobe PDF Reader" or just "PDF Reader" which more clearly states the purpose of the software.

Do report back on what you find when using Acrobat DC--there was an interesting thread on ReaderDC at dslreports a few weeks ago and the original poster ended up uninstalling ReaderDC because he was having so many problems with it and installed version 11 of Reader (non-dc).

I might take this class. The last time I tried to take an Acrobat course there I got bored and did about 8 Photoshop courses. I think I mentioned here that one of the teacher took the approach of making the photo look great, instead of making it correct.

I will attempt better self control next time.

I threw it away and now use Foxit instead - I hate dumbed-down phone apps masquerading as proper programs! Hiding all the functionality in the name of a pretty interface sucks, IMO.

As you may have guessed, we didn't get on!

LOL!!! Adobe has been taken over by the marketeers and is putting out more an more crap...


How do you like Foxit? Is it a PDF reader only or does it allow more than reading?

A reader - but not as noddy as the Adobe offering. You can buy all sorts of related extras but I just use the free version.

Thanks...I thought the free version of Foxit was a Reader only--good to know they have other goodies even if they aren't free. I'll give it a looksee. I'm currently using Reader 10 (non-dc) because version 11 (non-dc) was driving me nuts with these pop-up thingies that I couldn't find a way to turn off.

I've used Foxit PhantomPDF Express for HP for viewing and printing. The controls are set up like Microsoft ribbon.

But there are others: http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/test-cent...-free-3265657/
