IF you can survive the horrendous user experience, avoid the plentiful bugs and "features", and fathom out the exasperating user interface where if you select a command one way it has completely different options to when you select apparently the identical command another way, you might possibly need this software to accomplish what you want to do. It is probably more comprehensive than the competitors, but Adobe has rested on its laurels for many years and keeps tweaking its software without ever making it easy to use, properly working, let alone good software.

For example, they have, very belatedly, just proudly demonstrated that you can now edit a pdf in Acrobat and, wow, the text now wraps properly, which it used not do, such that there were video tutorials showing how to edit a pdf, but warning you that you could only sensibly change it if the new text was exactly the same length as the old text. I seem to recall that I had such basic functionality several decades ago in other software. But worse is to come: when you actually try doing it, rather than watching it on their flash demonstrations, and have proudly found the right tool in a "new and easier to find" place, an error message immediately stops you, saying that this font can't be changed. After exploring help, wahoo, there's a solution: Adobe know about this problem, but if you change it to a different font that's installed on your own computer rather than incorporated in the pdf, you will be able to change the text after all. Except it wouldn't do it when I tried, coming up with a different error message instead. So much for the "new and improved" version of Acrobat professional X. And it's not cheap!

For many tasks there are cheaper, or even free, products that can do most of what Adobe's software can do.
