After the confusing version jump of the Acrobat update in April Adobe now has also released Version 2017 of the perpetual license of Acrobat (classic track). Please note that the perpetual version has lost the amendment DC and now is only called Acrobat 2017.
The users of the perpetual version eventually can also benefit of new features of the subscription version:
- Easily compare files
- Tabbed interface
- Bulleted lists
- Scan to PDF
- Digitale ID’s
- Improved tools search
- Shared reviews on Mac
- Dark user interface
- Enhanced commenting
- Draw using DirectInk (Windows 10)
- Preview files on Home page
On the Acrobat 2017 FAQ page one can find a somewhat longer list of new features. But also there several features of the subscription version are missing. E.g. the enhancements of preflight and accessibility. However I don’t know if these features just have not found their way into these lists or if the perpetual version really has fewer features that the subscription version…
Acrobat 2017 is a paid update for users of Acrobat XI and Acrobat DC (Classic).
