- Adobe needs a form filling version for lower price - Try CutePDF
I did some research and found a nice product, that is essentially Acrobat Standard Edition called CutePDF Professional. Price was only $50 and comes with a form filler product to enter/save data in PDF forms ($30 if you only want their form filler product). Can also edit PDF form fields, merge PDF's, and change PDF page odering (all handy for when I scan stuff to PDF and find out after the scan I messed up one page, I can fix this now!). This is the basic funcitonality I needed and was bummed that I thought I had to drop a few hundred dollars on Acrobat Standard Edition to do this. I was a hairs breath from buying Standard Edition but found CutePDF with a little web searching while looking for used copies of Standard edition. Only thing I would "like" that it doesn't do is edit existing text in a PDF (not text form fields, those are fine), but then again, you need Acrobat Professional to do that anyway, and that's very expensive. Hopefully, CutePDF wil motivate Adobe to create another Acrobat product category for we simple home users that need such basic functionality (especially saving forms) a few times a year but don't want to drop a few hundred dollars to get this. Yes, Reader can save forms IF the person sending you the form enabled it to allow Reader to save form data, but that's a pain, since that doesn't always happen, and forms are passed along or downloaded and this is an impossibility sometimes. They should make a Reader that allows saving forms after entering the form data for say a price of $40. I would have bought that in a second. The lack of this product led me to find CutePDF. By the way, the $50 price for CutePDF Pro appears to be a special price offer (it's normally $90), but form filler appears to have a standard price of $30....more info
- They'll try to screw you
Adobe has a habit of making sure their new products break their old ones, thus forcing you to upgrade. Try editing a pdf in Acrobat Professional v5.0 Seems to work... but you can't print it from any of the newer versions of the reader. Oops. And did you ever have the pdf writer? If so, you may have noticed that a fairly recent upgrade of the Reader disabled your installation of the writer. Hmmm... now why would that happen? Time to upgrade, I guess.
Do yourself a favor and find an alternative solution. Adobe wants more wallet share, and they're willing to do whatever it takes to get it....more info
- Acrobat is actobat, you are stuck with it

- Adobe Acrobat Standard 8.0
It's a great product for those who need to view pdf's and make minor changes to files. However, for those who work in graphic design, it is limited in some aspects, but still a very good product. There are areas that are very useful in designing and receiving graphic files from those who don't have the Adobe Creative Suites. The program reads all pdf files easily and pulls them right up without any problems. As old a version as it is, I'm glad I was able to purchase it from the seller through Amazon. The whole transaction went very smoothly and very timely....more info
