With its release in November 2010, Adobe’s Acrobat X sports a streamlined and simplified user interface with a web page conversion feature and an improved Print dialog box. The software is available in the Standard and Pro versions.
The software gives one full control over creating and editing PDF documents along with tools to make sharing projects easier. With the new PDF Portfolio Wizard, one can assemble content into PDF and customize them with layouts, visual themes and color patterns. The Send Now feature allows for e-mailing of large groups of files without worrying about exceeding the attachment limit. And now with its new browser extension, one can convert web pages to PDF with one click from Explorer or Firefox. The improved Optical Character Recognition feature will make texts readable.
With Print to File capabilities, one can produce PDF files from any application. It is now possible to convert scans to PDF using the Paper to Digital feature. Additionally, the Protected View feature allows one to view PDF originating from potentially unsafe locations in a Sandbox. However, this massive feature set can make navigation confusing hence getting everything right can be a challenge. As of 2015, the software is also expensive, with the Standard version selling at $354 and the Pro version $443, according to Amazon.com.
