Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is an application for manipulating PDF documents. It can create, edit, sign, protect, merge, and convert PDF files. The application also uses optical character recognition to create PDFs from scanned files.
Acrobat Pro possesses a number of unique features not found in other PDF editors. For instance, it can:
– Ability to find the difference between two copies of one document.
– Edit page numbering so that it matches the page numbering of a scanned document
– Create a new font from the font in a scanned document. With this feature, users can preserve and use the original font of the document even if they don’t have this font installed on their systems.
The application uses the software as a service model. Subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro grants access to Adobe Document Cloud, which allows multiple people to work with documents from multiple devices. But the cost of the subscription might be prohibitive for many potential users. The application is available for Windows and macOS. And the license for Acrobat Pro also enables advanced editing features in Adobe Acrobat Reader on mobile operating systems.
