You can protect your new or edited documents from third-party manipulations. This helps to protect your important documents. You can now fill and sign forms conveniently without going through the hassle of doing so manually. If you have a form that was previously created into an Adobe Sign Form, users are allowed to drag-and-drop the Adobe Sign Form into the already existing PDF.
Another interesting thing with this tool is that it enables you to send a document to other recipients for their signature, using the Adobe Cloud Service. What’s fascinating is that the intended signee isn’t required to purchase or sign up for any Adobe tool. The person just needs access to a mobile device web browser to sign the document. The tool automatically sends an email to the intended signee and when the signing process is completed, both you and the signee will receive an email with the signed PDF document.
This tool also enables you to track the entire signing process. Another amazing feature of this signing tool is that you can send other formats for signing, including JPG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, DOC, DOCX, RTF, XLS, XLSX, HTM, TIFF, TIF, BMP, PPT, PPTX, TXT, CSV, and HTML. You can also combine several files easily and in any order, you desire using the ‘Combine Files’ tool. Users can optimize their PDF files because it provides you with a vast array of PDF Optimizer Settings to choose from. By default, this tool helps you to optimize memory space by removing embedded fonts, unwanted items from a file, and compressing images. With the reduce file command you can reduce the size of your PDF.
The Adobe Acrobat Pro PC also has the ‘Redact’ feature which is useful for blocking out sensitive parts of a document if you don’t want third-parties to pry. The ‘Stamp’ tool is just as simple and easy-to-use. You can either choose from a selection of preset Adobe stamps or you can create new ones. The ‘Compare Document’ tool is another great feature. You can easily compare two PDF files as it places both documents side-by-side or on a single page, then it will highlight the differences in texts and images. You can also spot what has been removed, added or modified in the results summary. With this software, your friend or business partner can add comments to various documents. This can be done by anyone with access to the document without the need to sign into any Adobe Service. By simply clicking open the link, the receivers can just click on the Comment-in tool in the browser window.
‘Action Wizard’ is another cool feature as it helps users to save time when creating new documents since it basically automates recurring tasks such as new file creations. Worthy of note, the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC interface is pretty customizable. It also automatically hides the toolbar when it’s no longer in use, decluttering the user interface. You can add frequently used tools to the quick toolbar for easy access whenever you use this application. There is also a ‘Print Production’ tool for printing out high-quality texts and images easily. This is applicable to new, edited, or viewed documents.
The ‘PDF Standards’ tool also helps you to print or share documents in various PDF formattings, including PDF, PDF/A, PDF/E, PDF/X, PDF/UA, PDF/VT, PAdES, and PDF Healthcare. It also has a ‘Certificate-based Signature’ feature which is associated only to the person signing the document. This makes it very difficult to forge signatures due to encrypted information. The ‘Accessibility’ tool was designed with Web Content Developers & Designers in mind, as well as for users with visual impairment or disabilities. With its rich media, you can easily add multimedia files to your document, including files encoded in H.264, MP3, MOV, and SWF formats. This software also has a Document Cloud where you can easily store all your documents and access them from any of your Adobe Acrobat Accounts at any time.
This beautiful creation which can run on all Windows versions and available in multiple languages is an excellent tool for businesses and individuals alike. Its only disadvantage is that it come at a high cost. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is one of the most appealing PDF applications available on the market.
