Product Information. Adobe Acrobat XI Standard offers a broad range of useful features for businesses. Acrobat is the best-known software when you need portable files that can be sent to users who may have different software programs, which may otherwise result in an inability to open files in a different format/5(8).
Almost all office workers now outgrow the free Adobe Reader and need access to the full Acrobat program to create PDFs, scan documents, fill forms, convert PDFs to Word format, and more. Acrobat has always been expensive but it is slightly more bearable now that Adobe has changed its licensing model to monthly subscriptions.
Let me lead you through a couple of ways to get Acrobat. Keep an eye out as you go down the options to configure the system. Most offices can live with the features in the Standard edition instead of the Pro edition but you may want to check this comparison of the two products. The biggest downside: That may not seem like a problem but Adobe has been playing a game for years: Similarly, Acrobat X does not integrate with Office , leaving a lot of businesses fuming.
The bundled licenses with scanners and computers are also frozen at a particular version, of course. When the integration breaks, you lose the convenient buttons at the top of the Office programs to create PDFs with a single click, and you lose the ability to create PDFs from Outlook messages and folders. The monthly subscription is expensive but it guarantees access to the latest version of Acrobat during the life of the subscription.
Adobe requires you to have an Adobe ID to enter the Adobe Store — an email address and password that you will use for your entire relationship with Adobe.

The tricky part comes after you sign up for the subscription and you want to install the program. I have not been able to find anywhere on the Adobe.
That leads to trial versions and has nothing for you. Lots of information about the money you spent but no information about how to download the program.
The answer is contained in the email sent to you after your order — and only in the email. Go to https: I want Acrobat. Why am I installing Creative Cloud? The broad answer is that in some ways — branding; clarity; consistency — Adobe is one of the few companies that can make Microsoft look good by comparison.
Adobe makes fifteen or twenty programs for design professionals. The programs integrate with each other and professionals frequently use several of them. Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, After Effects, InDesign, DreamWeaver, Adobe Premiere and others are widely used by artists, web designers, photographers, and other creative professionals.
The Creative Cloud app organizes the installation of those programs, as well as handling patches and upgrades and providing access to some additional cloud-based services.
And fonts. Remember fonts? Adobe still sells them. If you have the full subscription, the Creative Cloud app makes it easy to install a program that is needed on the fly. Acrobat is one of the Creative Cloud programs, so you will get the Creative Cloud app even though virtually none of its features apply to you.
Why is that? By visiting www. And, you can do a number of things on the Creative Cloud website. Install the upgrades to Acrobat when Creative Cloud asks you to, and ignore Creative Cloud the rest of the time. And if you have a new Acrobat XI Pro subscription, remember you can sign in to the Creative Cloud website to install the app and finally get to your Acrobat program.
