What does Adobe Acrobat Reader do well?
It’s my failsafe for when I absolutely need a document to be formatted, archived, or sent to a client correctly.
What does Adobe Acrobat Reader not do well?
Sometimes the frequency of updates can cause problems with files being readable for recipients who may have outdated software, but even then, I think Adobe’s gotten better about this in the last few years using less updates.
What do you wish you had known about Adobe Acrobat Reader before using?
Some of the functionality, such as flipping a document 90 degrees would’ve been awesome to know a little sooner.
