Editors' review

Adobe Acrobat Pro for Mac offers the wonderful functionality of Adobe Reader as well as some extra features, allowing you to combine PDFs into one file, create fillable forms, edit existing PDFs, and much more.

Pros

Attractive and intuitive design: A beautifully designed program, Adobe Acrobat Pro proves to be intuitive to use whether or not you are familiar with other Adobe applications. The icons are clear, the features easy to locate, and the provided templates allow you to begin creating forms right away. Besides, Adobe offers detailed online tutorials.

Cartload of features: You can combine multiple PDFs just by dragging and dropping files into a window, edit existing PDFs with just a few clicks, add text, change text, play around with the font of existing PDFs, and even save PDFs as Word or Excel files without any hassle. If you need to protect your files, you can also apply extra security options such as passwords and permissions in other applications, as well as set permissions directly in your PDF to prevent unauthorized copying of your data.

Intuitive form creator: Our favorite feature is the ability to create forms that other users can fill out and return. You can choose to either edit one of many templates, or you can create your own forms from scratch. The form creation process feels easier and more intuitive than that of Google Forms.

Cons

Expensive: After a 30-day trial you can choose to purchase a continual license of Adobe Acrobat Pro for $199, or you can become a subscriber for $19.99 a month, to enjoy additional online features. Students and teachers can purchase a continual license for the discounted price of $119. If you do not regularly edit PDFs and just need a way to view them, then the free Adobe Reader will meet your needs.

Bottom Line

Adobe Acrobat Pro is a professional application that is easy to navigate and highly useful for people who need to create and edit PDFs. Although it is a bit expensive for personal use, the price is worth it if you plan to use it on a regular basis.

    "Redaction at Last!"

    June 18, 2014   |   By Mckleanen

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 11.0.07

    Pros

    This satisfies a problem I have had for some time, the need to be able to redact a block of text. Previously I emailed my .pdf to work where I have Adobe Acrobat Pro provided by my employer. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named PDF Editor for Mac without having to pay $450 to Adobe:
    http://www.pdf-file-converter.com/pdf-editor-for-mac/

    Now I can split my healthcare EOB's 1 claim per file at home, so the filename encodes each claim with date, doctor etc.

    Cons

    Having to pay $449 to Adobe Acrobat Pro

    Summary

    Compared with Nitro PDF Pro and PDF editor for mac , this Acrobat Pro Xis much cheaper while providing a complete PDF solution: creating, editing and converting PDF files.

    "Couldn't even download the trial version"

    June 11, 2014   |   By gwelsby

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 11.0.07

    Pros

    10 charact

    Cons

    Unlike all the other .pdf editors of which I have tried the 30 day versions, this one makes you download a "download assistant" to help you with the download. It started twice and part of the way through each time it stopped and told me to check my broadband settings etc. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me but that's the last chance you'll get. Typical of the Adobe experience, and this was not even a very large file. Vote with your feet IF you can find some effective .pdf editing software elsewhere (and if you can PLEASE let me know).

    Summary

    All I wanted to do was to edit .pdf files of past papers from my daughter's GCSE maths exams and change the numbers to create new questions. All this would need was some software which let me edit the text in the document and also the text within tables and graphs. Please point me to a software application which will do this. I don't mind paying for good software - that's how the best software engineers make their living. However, at the end of the day one has to tell potential buyers that these engineers are definitely not earning their crust when they product an application like this which cannot even download the product which might make them money.

    "an expensive pdf editing tool"

    March 27, 2014   |   By Mathily

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 11.0.06

    Pros

    I gave a try to this tool but no success. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named PDF Editor for Mac.
    www.pdf-file-converter.com/pdf-editor-for-mac/

    Compared with Nitro PDF Pro and Acrobat Pro X, this PDF editor is much cheaper while providing a complete PDF solution: creating, editing and converting PDF files.

    Cons

    This is the most expensive PDF Editor I've found on the Internet.

    Summary

    NEED MUCH BUDGET FOR ACROBAT X.

    "Still has that OS 8.6 goodness"

    November 10, 2012   |   By jshalmos

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.1.4

    Pros

    Isn't terrible.

    Cons

    Is terrible. Ancient interface that doesn't match anything Adobe's done in over a decade. Key commands have no key commands. Apps in the app store that go for $2 have features Acrobat should have. Dreadful and forgotten.

    Summary

    Unloved and forgotten by Adobe.

    "10.1.4 crashes when sharing as an email attachment"

    August 22, 2012   |   By jaykappmeier

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.1.4

    Pros

    Great PDF tool

    Cons

    The latest version has a bug that prevents you from sharing from within a document by attaching the document to an email.
    When you attempt to do so, the program crashes.

    Summary

    10.1.4 was a step backward.

    "Thoroughly cantankerous -- cannot update nohow!"

    August 03, 2011   |   By Steveg_VA

    Version: Adobe Acrobat Pro 10.1

    Pros

    great at handling PDF needs (DUH!)

    Cons

    i simply cannot upgrade, going back several versions. Updater claims that software has changed and cannot be updated, reinstall. But I no longer can find my initial installer. So, I'm dead in the water, and I just use Preview.

    Summary

    I avoid Adobe products like the plague because of difficulty in upgrading.

    "A "Must-Have" application for Power Users"

    March 22, 2011   |   By FLASH1296

    Version: Adobe Acrobat 10.0.2

    Pros

    .pdf is an extraordinarily important document format, so having the actual application to create and work with such is creates formidable a formidable skill-set.

    Cons

    The price is high.

    "Works Great"

    March 16, 2011   |   By cogator

    Version: Adobe Acrobat 10.0.1

    Pros

    Fast and lets me change my files from pdf to word and other type of files. The editing options and ease of use are important to me and make the program worth the cost.

    Cons

    Updates do not seem to be working very well. Otherwise the program works flawlessly.

    Summary

    I would recommend this program to anyone that works with a lot of pdf files. Especially if you would rather save the pdf files into another format for using in various things like email, contracts and other documents created in word or other programs.
