Version 8 improves on speed vastly... but they've dumbed it down so much that you're constantly thinking "where is the _____ button?". What they've done is hidden it in some sub-sub-menus so now if you want to do anything, it means you have to get clicking like mad. The interface is NOTHING like previous versions.

As always, this should be rated 0 for DRM/vendor-lockin stupidity.

There are much better free alternatives available for all platforms (linux/mac/windows). For Windows, try Foxit Reader maybe?

Caveat emptor: Incredibly, this version does not convert the following file format from its 'Create file' command inside of Acrobat:
— docx/xlsx (MS Office 2007)
— odt/ods (OpenOffice formats)
— tmd/pmd (SoftMaker Office formats).

You can, however, create any file by printing it to PDF as usual. The toolbar keeps getting larger and larger — along with Office 2007's Ribbon, do companies assume users are illiterate? But at least they are customizable. Finally, the navigation pane is butt-ugly. The only possibly useful new feature in this version are the 'Acrobat Connect meetings' which of course, is for collaboration.

If you're using version 7.x, wait until version 9; you won't miss a thing.

Does what it says. Beyond the needs of most of course; to the poster complaining about activation requirements, I'm sure the open source project pdfcreator will suffice for your needs. Especially if you think the deprecated .chm format could serve as a replacement for .pdf :-/

does somebody know whether this version still uses that crappy licensing (activation checking) service like the previous version and like all the other adobe applications? if yes, I hope there will be a corporate version, cause this licensing crap eats launches every time you launch acrobat and even when you don't launch it, sits in memory and eats cpu and memory.

With previous version I installed the corporate version which does not require activation and then added German files ripped from a german acrobat pro installation. hope this will work with v.8 too, otherwise I'll start with v.7.

this programme is crap and the licensing issue makes it even crappier. why don't people use the great chm format by MS? it's faster and more user-friendly. If everybody used it I wouldn't even think of installing acrobat on my puter

Does anyone know if this version fully supports MS Windows x64, including PDF file creation within Office products?
