I installed the new Adobe Acrobat XI on an office workstation a few days ago, but it wouldn't print PDF from IE. I spent 2 hours with an Adobe technician remotely logged into this computer who was not able to get it to work. When we tried installing and using the Chrome browser it did work, so she concluded it was not their problem and that we should talk to Microsoft about fixing Internet Explorer.
Of course, we have other workstations in the office with this same version of Windows, Internet Explorer and the same version of Adobe -- I even took the technician to one and showed her we could print, but no matter, not Adobe's problem!
This is not the first time we've had problems with Adobe. I think it's time we consider alternatives. I found several reviews at http://www.pcworld.com/article/2096946/5-cheaper-alternatives-to-acrobat-for-pdf-editing.html
, but no mentioned our specific needs In the feature lists. I thought I'd get some EE recommendations.
Our needs are simple: we need to print PDFs from web browsers (and the free Adobe Reader still works OK btw). We need to append scans from a Fujitsu scanner to existing PDF files. Scans and resulting PDFs need to be text-searchable. We need to print everything to PDF (which the free PDF 995 does flawlessly). That's it! We don't edit or rearrange PDF pages.
