Adobe Acrobat DC gets a much-needed upgrade

03 Oct 2018

Adobe is releasing a new Adobe Acrobat DC with a central document hub and connected mobile apps that allow people to create, share and interact with PDFs across devices.

New features include a service for streamlined document reviews, touch-enabled editing on tablets, and new Adobe Sensei-powered functionality that uses AI with Adobe Scan and Acrobat DC, automating repetitive tasks.

Subscribers to Acrobat DC and Adobe Creative Cloud members can now send documents for signature with Adobe Sign built into frequently used apps.

“Adobe Acrobat DC is the gold standard for today’s mobile and connected workforce,” says Adobe digital media executive vice president and general manager Bryan Lamkin.

“With this powerful release, we’ve created a modern PDF platform that enables people to scan, sign, edit, share and review content quickly and easily wherever work takes them.”

New PDF share and review services

Share a PDF and keep track of who has seen it, or circulate content with any number of reviewers and set automatic reminders to keep approvals on schedule.

Reviewers can easily comment and resolve feedback within the PDF itself.

Reimagined Acrobat DC home view

A completely redesigned Home view across the Acrobat DC desktop app, Acrobat Reader mobile app and the all-new Adobe Document Cloud web app acts as a central hub for all PDF activity, providing a single view into status updates on incoming and outgoing tasks like documents that have been shared with you for review or that need your signature.

Scan to digital, edit on tablets and sign from anywhere

New versions of the Acrobat Reader mobile app and Adobe Scan include full editing on tablets and e-signatures built into Acrobat DC.

  • Scan business cards in multiple languages - Use Adobe Scan to quickly turn business cards into mobile contacts in five new languages - French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.

Adobe Sensei recognises contact information - like name, email and phone number - and scans multiple business cards at once, creating new contacts in your smartphone or tablet.

  • Recognise and fill forms - Take advantage of form field recognition, powered by Adobe Sensei, in Acrobat DC desktop, Acrobat Reader mobile and the Document Cloud web app to fill out and sign forms.

Adobe Sensei analyses documents to recognise the field type, size and position so that users can just tap and type content without having to change tools manually or align text in field boxes.

  • Edit on tablets with touch-enabled PDF - Acrobat Pro DC mobile users can now edit PDFs from their iOS or Android tablets with the same functionality as on desktops.

Users can change text, format and edit, or add, rotate and resize images within a PDF.

  • Sign from anywhere - Adobe Sign is built directly into the new Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader, including a completely redesigned and simplified way to send documents for signature in Acrobat DC.

Hundreds of millions of people can now electronically sign PDFs no matter which surface they are working on.
