I put the Acrobat X question to Fujitsu, and this is their response: -------------------------- Currently the S1500 comes with Adobe 9 full version. The S1500M comes with Adobe 8 . There are no plans to upgrade to a current version at this time.

The scanner's own software does the scanning, Acrobat is supplied to let you maniuplate the files after the fact. If you have X, you should be able to use it.
I have the smaller S1300, which does not include any version of Acrobat. I use the fujitsu software to do scanning, then manipulate PDF files with other products that were not supplied with the scanner.
Acrobat X has tools to reduce the file size. For example, I created a PDF document with a file size of 13 megabites. Using the tool provided in acrobat I reduced the file size down to 1.6 megabite. In the event you are not familiar with acrobat X, go to file menu, select save as (you have two choices): 1st is save file to reduced file size or 2nd, you can select save as optimized PDF. Optimized PDF allows to choose objects not to print or reduce in size.
This is an old thread at this point, but, for what it's worth I have uninstalled Acrobat X and reinstalled Version 9. I did the same between Versions 7 & 8. Adobe does not seem to get the need to carry functionality over from one version to the next. Version 9 handled the flattening of layers quite well. Version 10 (why did they call it "X"), makes an attempt but comes up short. I'll wait for Version 11 to see if they fix the oversights.
Does it actually work with Acrobat X? I know it comes with v.9, but I already own X Pro. I'm ready to buy, but concern over compatibility has me holding off. I know it doesn't support TWAIN, so I'm wondering if it works only with v.9. I can't have two versions installed at the same time.
