Adobe Acrobat 9.0 has been a source of frustration. Conflict between Adobe's PDF Maker add-in and Microsoft Office 2007 causes the Microsoft application to crash. Adobe's add-in is automatically disabled by Word, Excel, etc., so you can't make an Adobe PDF while using a Microsoft application. If you enable the add-in in Word (a tricky process in itself) and then try to create an Adobe PDF from a Word file, Word crashes. But now you can create a PDF from a Word file when you are in the Adobe application! Major heartburn! I wish I had stayed with Adobe Acrobat 5.0!

On Adobe's website there is a TechNote that will guide you through no less than FIVE solutions (three printed pages) to help you resolve the conflict between Acrobat 9.0 and Microsoft Office 2007. Buy Adobe Acrobat 9.0 only if you are prepared to do battle with the default settings in Microsoft Office 2007.

I'm that guy in the office that always downloads the betas, always been willing to take a risk to try out the newest software, so I've been through a litany of nightmares when it comes to new programs and their inherent bugs. That being said, I have to say that Acrobat Pro 9 has never given me one bit of trouble. I upgraded from 6 to 9 so I could take advantage of the LifeCycle Designer to design forms for my company. Installation went smooth, and it's never given me any trouble. I recently upgraded to Office 2007, and both programs continue to function perfectly, separately and jointly. I always hate to see other have problems with their software (there are just so many better ways to waste time), and everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion, but I have give this one a thumbs up.

I have to use acrobat professional for my job. I have been using version 8.1.2 for the last year. I decided to upgrade to 9.0 because I had to get a third license. Acrobat only let's you install each package on two computers. I bought a third computer and instead of activating and deactivating a license each time I switch computers I decided to buy an additional package. What ticks me off about 9.0 is that it cost more than I paid for 8.1.2, but it seems to be the same package. The menus look the same and the software does essentially the same. I have yet to see a difference in my day to day work. If you are a user who uses the main functions of the software only, then you might reconsider upgrading. The software does not add any functionality. That aside, $499 for the package is a stiff price and results more from Adobe's monopoly position for this kind of software than from the quality and functionality of the product.

I am the IT and a small company. We upgraded to Version 9 two computers. Software is fine until you have a problem. Mother board crashed in one requiring replacement. Adobe will let you install Acrobat then it checks out configuration. Adobe nag Tells you software will shut down in 30 days. Checking FAQ you must deactivate software before installing on another computer and it must be the original computer. Called customer support sept 10th. On hold 92 minutes had to leave phone for work then called back and placed on hold for another 32 minutes still no support. On hold today 34 and counting. I will update this if I ever get adobe to answer customer support. Microsoft customer support had my fix for me on day after I email them.

I recently heard about and downloaded the free Foxit Reader 3.0 and PrimoPDF, to use instead of Acrobat Reader and Adobe Acrobat respectively.

Wow, wow, wow.

Those two freeware programs take up so much fewer system resources while performing 90% of the same functions, for FREE!

Reader 9.0 has especially become a bloated monster, and with it gone I noticed a substantial speed improvement in Firefox. Overall my Windows XP Professional system is now much more stable, and faster as well. It's almost as huge an improvement as I got when I removed all the Norton software, even.

The product is mediocre on a good day.

Support is non-existent. Call support, be on hold for 30 minutes, then 10 minutes of proving you are a real customer, then back on hold for 30 minutes and the line hangs up on you. So, if you are foolish, you start all over. I did not.

Problems with Adobe Acrobat

The following relates signficant functional problems with Acrobat which I have encountered. These include:
1. interminable interruption by error popups that cannot be stopped,
2. alteration of my documents to unusable forms (OCR rotates some pages that should not be rotated),
3. inability to convert some hyperlinked Word documents to PDF,
4. alterations of document identifying metadata that I have entered into Acrobat dialog boxes,
5. difficulty in performing common bookeeping tasks globally (such as changing zoom size for all bookmarks),
6. program crashes (when using split screen and editing bookmarks),
7. inability to change default settings that persist (such as getting Adobe not to put my name on all comments and other markups),
8. intermittent crashes when attempting OCR,
9. messages that the Acrobat Organizer database is damaged that cannot be stopped,
10. Acrobat cannot read a document (text to speech) that it did the OCR on if the document has more than one page, and
11. poor accuracy OCR.

Acrobat automatic updates flashes uncontrollable popup windows on your screen as fast as you close them, under certain circumstances. This is extremely annoying in that it is difficult or impossible to turn off. You cannot turn automatic updates off in the only place that would make sense to look for stopping this feature, and you cannot turn it off without connecting to the internet to update first - Adobe requires you to interrupt whatever important work you are busy with to take care of this mundane housekeeping task at their convenience. You would expect to find the option to turn off automatic updates in the preferences section, but it is not there.
