Probably the best release of Acrobat yet, the Adobe Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.1 now allows users to add text and edit them. No, you are not reading it wrong. That’s one of the best things to celebrate about this Acrobat version. Let me tell you more about the others.
The improvements in the Acrobat Pro can be summarized into three words – work flow enhancements. It was designed to increase the workability of the PDF file. I can now interoperate my PDF files with the other applications in my computer. What’s more, I can easily access my PDF files from just any device I possess. Its optimized mobile version is now compatible with touch-screen devices as well.
Aside from adding and editing texts, Acrobat now enables me to replace graphics and images easily at an extreme level. Something which years back, has always been frustrating for Acrobats users. With the Pro version, I can also create forms, gather data, generate summary report, and view response data. I can even export these data to Excel.
In Adobe Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.1, security options have also been improved. They now provide more efficient operation. For example, it’s now faster to password-protect my files than apply Restrict Editing. Lastly, Adobe now offers cloud-based services where I can access documents and apply simple signatures.
- It has improved text-editing tools
- It has improved text-editing tools
- Technical assistance from manufacturer is pricey
Get your PDF files the way you need with Adobe Acrobat XI editor

Since the PDF format is used in several fields, I think that an application to edit these documents is essential in a computer. For that reason, I found Adobe Acrobat XI so useful, since it allows me to create a document from scratch to use a previous text document to make it, or just to use a PDF and modify its content. I think this comes very handy for printing the documents you create from other computers since I had experienced some failed printings before due to problems with the compatibility. With PDF documents, I have no longer this problem since the files are printed exactly as are shown.
Adobe Acrobat XI requires a good computer for running well, and that is the worse part it takes. Using this program, I have experienced some problems about its performance, but in general terms it is a good application for modifying your PDF files. The program also allows to set some privacy levels or to set unmodifiable features for your documents. This way no one will ever change a thing in your files by protecting them with a password. If you need to change or include new elements in a PDF document, this application is the one you need.
- Modify the elements you need in a document
- Protect your files with passwords
- Convert all kind of files into PDF
- It takes too many resources
