Editors' Review

+

Adobe Reader DC allows you to easily read, navigate, print, and enter information into Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Pros

Form submission: Adobe Reader allows you to easily enter information on a PDF form and submit it.

Attention to style: Reader looks great, and the interface is very easy to understand.

Good control: Reader offers excellent control over any document you're viewing. You can zoom, navigate, and search large documents very effectively.

Cons

Clunky installation: Installing Reader is clunky. After downloading the file, the Adobe installer launches, which executes a lengthy installation process. Then when you finally launch the app, your computer informs you that it needs to configure the program and then restart your computer.

Bottom Line

Adobe wrote the book on PDF software, and Reader lives up to its pedigree. It is, simply put, the best program available for this purpose. If you work with PDFs a lot, you'll want it installed on your system.

"Opens nothing: Failed to connect to a DDE server"

September 06, 2016  |  By ememkai

2016-09-06 09:14:20  |  By ememkai

 |  Version: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2015.017.20050

Pros

None - does not open the program or a PDF. This version does not even deserve one star!

Cons

I downloaded Adobe Reader DC from the adobe.com which installed it on my Windows 10 desktop PC. It will not open the program or a PDF. Best solution I found on the various forums was to change the security setting in the Adobe Reader preferences. But how can I do that when the program doesn't even open?

Summary

I'm tired of wasting my time troubleshooting something that should be no trouble at all.
Good-bye Adobe Reader.

"Give me back the earlier version"

September 03, 2016  |  By Thimbler600

 |  Version: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2015.017.20050

Pros

None yet as I won't use it.

Cons

Primitive looking and missing features of earlier versions.

Summary

Doesn't get my vote. I'll use my Nuance for more capabilities.

"Wastes user's time, inferior to previous versions"

August 01, 2016  |  By Bill_Levinson

2016-08-01 11:38:48  |  By Bill_Levinson

 |  Version: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2015.017.20050

Pros

None, except ability to read PDF documents

Cons

(1) Complicated interface, e.g. after you click on the Save icon (which normally means to save as the current file), it asks you where you want to save it, thus forcing you to duplicate the effort of locating the file you are already using

(2) I used the "Fill in and sign" features to fill out two forms. In both cases Adobe Reader then refused to either print the completed forms or save them. I actually had to fill out both of them by hand, and then scan them (so I would have a permanent record), thus wasting even more of my time.

Summary

My experience with Adobe (Flash player as well as Reader, and Adobe Acrobat) is that it takes very little pride in the quality of its products.
