You don’t need to be at a desk to get work done anymore. With Adobe Acrobat DC, you’re always connected to the tools and documents you need to stay productive and do great things—no matter where you are or what device you’re using.


What’s new in Acrobat DC.



Edit PDFs from your phone.

Easily change text or formatting, edit lists, or add, rotate, and resize images in a PDF—right from your iPhone or Android phone.

Prepare Forms improvements.

 A new editing experience in the Prepare Forms tool lets users add and edit text in a form as well as in form fields. Users can start a form authoring workflow from scratch without an existing PDF.


Simplified authoring for multiple signers.

Now you can more easily create forms that require multiple signers from inside Acrobat.


Star PDFs.

Keep important files at your fingertips by simply starring the file. Starred files stored in Document Cloud are available across all your devices from the Home View.



New simplified tools in the File menu.

 New and simplified tools for reducing file size and protecting with a password are now available in the File menu.



Search for content inside PDFs stored in Document Cloud.

 Search has now been extended to the full content inside PDFs rather than solely looking at file names.


Turn practically any file into a powerful PDF.   

With Adobe Acrobat DC, you can convert various file formats into a high-quality PDF that’s easy to share and looks great on any screen.


Convert Word, Excel, or PowerPoint to PDF.

When it’s time to share important Microsoft documents, convert them to PDFs within Word, Excel, Outlook, or PowerPoint using the built-in Acrobat ribbon. Save and share high-quality PDFs that are easy to protect and look right on any screen.

Scan to PDF.

Scan paper documents and forms to PDF—or convert JPG images to PDF—and get smart, searchable files that are easy to share and store.

Print to PDF.

Convert files to PDF from any application that prints by selecting Adobe PDF as your printer.

Create PDFs from almost any file.

Quickly turn Microsoft Office and other documents into PDFs that look perfect with a simple click.

Convert web pages to PDF.

Turn HTML pages into PDF files that look and act like they do when you view and interact with them online.


Merge files into one PDF.

Combine multiple files and arrange them in one compact PDF. And present your colleagues with a well-organized collection of project information.



Editing and converting PDFs made easy. Way easy.    

No need to re-create documents from scratch. With Adobe Acrobat DC, you can quickly export PDFs into other file formats and even edit text within the PDF.   


Instantly edit any paper document.

Scan any paper document to PDF or open a scanned image. Acrobat will automatically convert image to text and PDF to text and take care of the optical character recognition tasks so you don’t have to.


Convert PDFs to Office formats.

Save your PDF files as formatted Microsoft Word documents. Quickly export PDF files to Excel spreadsheets. And save PDF slides as editable PowerPoint presentations.

Edit data in scanned tables.

Need to update a paper document? Don’t retype it or bother with tedious OCR steps. Instead, turn it into a PDF you can edit right away using custom fonts that look just like your printout.

Convert existing forms to fillable forms.

Whether you start with a scanned paper form or a simple form made in Microsoft Word, Excel, or another application, you can turn it into an intelligent PDF form with Acrobat DC.


Compare two PDF files.

Quickly detect differences between file versions with the file compare tool. A highlight bar helps you quickly spot all text and image differences between PDFs.


Review differences.

Identify all changes made to your PDF documents or scanned PDFs. See what's been added, deleted, and modified at a glance in an easy-to-scan results summary.



Share and sign PDFs simply and securely.

Adobe Acrobat DC makes it a breeze to collaborate, share, review, and even sign a PDF from anywhere, on any device.


Share files with others.

Whether you’re working on a desktop, in a browser, or on your mobile device, it’s easier than ever to share PDFs to review with your team. Simply send a link to your reviewers and capture all their feedback, all in one place. Keep track of every view, download, and comment along the way.

Collect comments on a single page.

With the easy-to-use commenting tools in Acrobat, working on a team is more efficient than ever. Multiple reviewers can quickly leave comments, mention users, or search a document—all on the same PDF.

Get documents signed.

Forget the delays of old-fashioned ink signatures. With Acrobat DC, you can quickly collect e-signatures that are legally binding in countries around the world. No printing, faxing, or overnight delivery required.

Fill and sign any form.

Stop filling out forms by hand. With the Fill & Sign tool, you can fill, sign, and send any PDF form electronically from your desktop, browser, or mobile app.


Create protected PDFs in Office applications.

Just check the Restrict Editing box in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook for Windows to prevent others from copying or editing your PDFs.


Password protect a PDF file.

Control access to your PDF files. Encrypt your files and add either a certificate or passwords that recipients must enter before they can open or preview your PDF document.
