What is Acrobat?

Adobe Acrobat is a programme for creating and editing documents in the Portable Document Format (PDF). The PDF format was designed to create documents which would be independent of application software, hardware, and operating systems.  Each PDF file holds all the information in needs to display itself, including the text, fonts, graphics, and others.

Adobe Acrobat was not designed as a Word Processor or Design Layout tool. It is therefore more normal to use other programmes such as Microsoft Office to create original documents then convert the finished documents to PDF format using Acrobat.

Manuals are available in 9, X/XI and DC versions.

My Acrobat 9 doesn't work with Office 2010?!

No, sorry. Acrobat 9 only worked with Office 2007. If you have a later version of Office you will need to upgrade your Acrobat too.

Office 2010 uses Acrobat X.

Office 2013 uses Acrobat XI.

Office 2016 uses Acrobat DC
