Merge feedback into a single PDF file to reconcile comments.

Customer Reviews:

  • By all means try before you buy!
    I'm so glad that I installed a trial version of Acrobat 8 Professional prior to buying it. Luckily, I did not need to uninstall a working version of the product in order to install the trial version, unlike the previous reviewer. The program crashed at least a dozen times during my first hour of use, and I wasn't trying to do anything complicated. For example, the program simply disappeared without a trace when I pressed the Settings button during a Save as... dialog or attempted to Edit -> Preferences for HTML export....more info
  • Bloated and Unstable
    Another bloated, greedy and unstable piece of software from Adobe. Software whos auto-update feature caused my entire software suite to crash as Adobe burrows into everything for Word and Outlook to Internet Exploiter and Explorer. Here's the kicker, the Adobe software won't let you uninstall or reinstall, generating a consistent error that is not documented on Adobes website. And if you even bother to try their customer support line, find a comfortable chair and make a drink, you're gonna need it....more info
  • Acrobat has become bloatware...
    This is really quite disappointing- Acrobat, which used to be a quick, low-resource alternative to text delivery, has become a piece of software so bloated that it crashes constantly, takes an eternity to install or uninstall, and is generally not worth the upgrade. I'd wager that 90% of people would be just fine with Acrobat from 6 years ago, and most of the "features" added to this suite are unnecessary and actually detrimental to the software. Avoid, and look for open-source alternatives!...more info
  • Acrobat 8.0 does not work with Office 2007 Vista
    Update: By now (Feb. 2009 Acrobat works with MS Office 2007 products.
    I don't know what upadate by what supplier fixed it.
    Gio

    I have a recently purchased Acrobat 8.0 Professional. It installed fine on my new Vista machine, although it cites only Office 2003 products. But I have MS Office 2007. After installation (and reinstallation) no Acrobat conversion options show on MS Word, and when trying to use Acrobat directly for an MS Word file conversion it first reinstalls itself, and then reports that the Word file (I have tried several) is corrupt.

    I now have to ask colleagues with older software to do my PDF conversion.
    I could not find out if or when Adobe plans to be compatible with Vista and Office 2007....more info
  • Just as Advertised
    Brand new. Shrink-wrapped. Just as advertised. Installed with no problem. I am happy....more info
  • FUBAR
    Software that repeatedly crashes and requires multiple reloadings deserves NO STARS, but amazon does not allow that option, so this gets 1 star.

    Having owned versions 4, 5, 6 and now 8, I've watched this product add features, and with them glitches. Would it be a great product if it worked? Yes. Unfortunately, it crashes, and crashes and crashes.

    Adobe has already issued two update fixes, but still it crashes.

    Not good.

    UPDATE: Since writing the above, I have purchased a new HP desktop and Acrobat generally works on it. The major exceptions are the actions listed under the Document tab, especially Reduce File Size, which simply crashes as soon as you click on it. For anyone who stores large files, this is a significant defect.

    My old computer (a Gateway) was about five years old. Both computers run on Windows XP, so the operating system is not the cause of the crashes.

    2nd UPDATE: Today [02/06/08] Adobe released Ver. 8.1.2. It's still screwed up.

    3rd UPDATE 02/23/08: There is an alternative on the horizon, PDF Converter Professional 5.0 by Nuance Communications, which sells OmniPage 16 Professional. Nuance has an ugly history of selling software before its time (i.e., using early purchasers as beta sites), but it's the only real alternative I've been able to find. There are other shareware programs, but they don't have the functionality of Adobe Acrobat 8.

    UPDATE #4 02/26/08: Well, it looks like PDF Converter Professional 5 also lacks the functionality of Adobe Acrobat 8. I went to Nuance's website and downloaded the new version, only to find that it lacks support for scanners. (This is strange because Nuance's flagship product, Omnipage, does include support for scanners.) It does, however, include features for inserting, extracting, replacing, deleting, cropping and rotating pages, which I had been having trouble with in Adobe. In its promotional materials, Nuance claims that it will create headers and footers, but I see no evidence of that.

    UPDATE #5 07/28/08: This will be my final update, since Adobe has released Adobe Acrobat Professional 9. I bought a copy yesterday and have just begun using it. It seems not to suffer from the flaws that afflicted Acrobat 8, but we'll see.

    The clear lesson of all of this is that Adobe releases poorly written and documented software, treating its customers as beta testers. Caveat Emptor....more info
  • adobe acrobat 8
    this is a very useful product for a law firm like us because we make forms and we interact with clients using safe passwords... so after making a wonderfully useful form, we emailed to client with a password to open so that they could fill it up and email back to us.... but our clients who had lower version/free version of adobe couldn't do that. they just had to print the form out and mail to us... which made this whole password business silly. do they have to buy this same product to do what we want to do? ...more info
  • Buying this was a mistake!
    Adobe will not support this product without a $40 fee. My version will not work, will not uninstall, will not repair, will not do anything. After an hour of explaining this to tech in a foreign country with very hard to understand English, they said they knew the answer, it was simple and that they would tell me just as soon as I paid them $40. Highway robbery!!!...more info
  • Works Great!
    I run this product on my WinXP desktop and Vista laptop. It installed easily and has been very stable for me (no lockups or crashes). I use it to create pdf documents and to fill out and save pdf forms. It has been working out great for me so far.

    There have been quite a few reviews complaining about stability and installation issues. I haven't experienced those problems and do not know what the differences could be between my computers/software and theirs. There may be forums on the web that list the specifications of the computers experiencing these issues.

    As far as I'm concerned, this product is very useful to me and I recommend it.

  • Great Service
    I appreciated the prompt service that I received when I ordered this product. It arrived before the anticipated delivery date. I would recommend using Amazon for your order....more info
  • Great must-have product
    Creating a pdf from any other format is almost a must capabiity, however I was a bit disappointed Adobe imbedded itself everywhere. Good from a usability standpoint, but ask me first if I want to do that. In all, no problems with the product, in installation or use.
