"Adobe Acrobat DC sucks."

August 11, 2015  |  By shaolinbruce

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.008.20082

Pros

I can't think of any.

Cons

This new version is a radical departure from the simple and basic features of Acrobat Reader XI. There are way too many bells and whistles for the typical home user of this product. Not only that, but many features look like they are available until you click on them and then they want $$$$ to use them. This just goes to show how greedy Adobe Systems is.

Summary

I hate this new version of Adobe Reader and I hate Adobe Systems. I am looking for a free PDF viewer to use instead of this crap.

"Terrible product. Uninstalled !!"

August 07, 2015  |  By jimvano

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.008.20082

Pros

Nothing,
Nada,
None!

Cons

The list is long, but here are some basic issues:
1) Save doesn't work for edited files - forces Save As
2) User interface is awful - menus incomplete and icons in strange places
3) Difficult to find common functions
4) Too many useless icons where Adobe is trying to sell more product features

Summary

I uninstalled after a week of attempting to use this product. It will take major work before I install Reader again.

"HORRIBLE - ROLLED BACK TO PREVIOUS VERSION"

July 17, 2015  |  By HollisHoHo

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

NONE.
NONE.
NONE.
NONE.

Cons

EVERYTHING.
BLOATED.
SLOW.
NOT USER FRIENDLY (Even though I'm an experienced Adobe Acrobat user!)
UGLY INTERFACE.
ILLOGICAL.

Summary

Stay with your old version. Don't waste your time with the upgrade.

"Trash - waste of bandwidth"

May 25, 2015  |  By JimStinson52

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None - but in all honesty, once I discovered that I couldn't use it for my primary purpose, I deleted it and reloader Reader XI

Cons

Took away the ability for me to sign multiple names to contracts, didn't keep looking after that.

Summary

Piece of malware as far as I am concerned. I deleted it within 5 minutes of installing it.

"Terrible! Uninstalled immediately"

May 18, 2015  |  By editmyupdates

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None that I noticed.

Cons

They've gone to the "My Weekly Reader" format with large fonts, lots of white space. When I first opened it, I had to scroll down 2 screens to see the bottom of the page. They force users into their cloud and by default turn on tracking.

If you feel like giving it a try, DO NOT DELETE YOUR OLDER INSTALLER. You may very well want to uninstall this version and reinstall the earlier one - which works just fine. I think that "DC" stands for Dog Cr...

Summary

Very poor upgrade. I might expect this from a paid product, but to inflict this on users of a free product that has LOTS of alternatives?

I reinstalled version 10. When that stops working, I'll use one of the many free alternative PDF readers. Meanwhile, I won't be renewing my Acrobat+ subscription. This upgrade is wholly absurd.

"i would rate it 0 stars if i could"

May 18, 2015  |  By Neseri Nemocaj

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

i don't see any

Cons

lots, some would be:
-that we can't change the colors and background
-cloud is pretty darn expensive

Summary

people just change something for the sake of changing things, even if it isn't necessary.
cloud is pretty expensive, and by the way, the same tools on the cloud can be found elsewhere FOR FREE.

i'm going back to adobe reader 11, at least that one was better on the eyes

"Adobe Pro DC - I want a refund"

April 30, 2015  |  By drsullivan48

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

None - customer support sucks too.

Cons

Text conversion is horrible. Edit document, auto converts document to text whether you want to or not, the option can't be disable. In the review, the writer said Adobe gives you control over creating/editing your documents, just read from a press release from Adobe DC. You have no control. It automatically does editing, then you have to revert back to the original. Support gives you work arounds because the auto features in DC cannot be disable.. Again, piece of junk. I want a refund!

Summary

It's a piece of crap. I don't need work arounds to stuff that worked before.

"Classy but not efficient"

April 17, 2015

 |  Version: Adobe Reader DC 2015.007.20033

Pros

- Looks more sophisticated

Cons

- Can't change colour of added text.
- Saving documents a longer process

Summary

1 step forward, 2 steps back
