Adobe Continues to Revolutionize the PDF with Latest Update to Acrobat Document Cloud

Adobe is announcing major advancements in Adobe Document Cloud that will transform PDF capabilities.

The area of PDFs as a whole "is just exploding as we see digital documents emerge more and more,” said Lisa Croft, group product marketing manager, Adobe Document Cloud, Adobe.

Adobe is unveiling an all-new Adobe Acrobat DC with a central document hub and connected mobile apps that reimagine the way people create, share, and interact with PDFs across devices.

Innovations include a new service for streamlined document reviews, touch-enabled editing on tablets, and new Adobe Sensei-powered functionality that puts artificial intelligence to work for users of Adobe Scan and Acrobat DC, automating repetitive tasks and saving time.

With a subscription to Acrobat DC, people have all the latest updates and innovations at their fingertips. And, subscribers to Acrobat DC and Adobe Creative Cloud members can now easily send documents for signature with Adobe Sign built into the apps they use every day.

Now users can get more done with PDFs when working on mobile, including full editing on tablets and e-signatures built into Acrobat DC.

New features will allow users to:

  • Scan Business Cards in Multiple Languages: Use Adobe Scan to quickly turn business cards into mobile contacts in five new languages-French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Adobe Sensei recognizes contact information –like name, email and phone number –and scans multiple business cards at once, creating new contacts in your smartphone or tablet.
  • Recognize and Fill Forms: Take advantage of form field recognition, powered by Adobe Sensei, in Acrobat DC desktop, Acrobat Reader mobile and the Document Cloud web app to fill out and sign forms faster. Adobe Sensei analyzes documents to recognize the field type, size and position so that users can just tap and type content without having to change tools manually or align text in field boxes.
  • Edit on Tablets with Touch-Enabled PDF: Acrobat Pro DC mobile users can now edit PDFs from their iOS or Android tabletswith the same powerful functionality that they have on their desktops. For the first time, users can change text, format and edit, or add, rotate and resize images within a PDF allwith the touch of a finger.
  • Sign from Anywhere: Adobe Sign is built directly into the new Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader, including a completely redesigned and simplified way to send documents for signature in AcrobatDC. And using Acrobat Reader, hundreds of millions of people can now electronically sign PDFs no matter which surface they are working on.

The company will continue to reimagine the PDF as it looks toward the future along with building partnerships, Croft said.

“We’re really focusing on how can we help people keep those processes digital, everywhere possible and also reimagine the PDF at the same time and make sure we’re providing that capability to be connected and mobile and have this great experience across devices,” Croft said.
