What is Adobe Acrobat?


How is Adobe Acrobat Reader different from Adobe Acrobat Pro?

The main difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader is that Acrobat allows the user to create PDF’s (Post Data Files) as well as edit or add comments to PDF’s. Reader only allow the user to view them.


I have a Mac when should I expect to get Adobe Acrobat?

We will be deploying the Mac version of Adobe Acrobat during the Spring Quarter.  Mac OS X already has the ability to create PDFs build into the operating system so this upgrade would only add edit and form capabilities.

Do I need to restart my computer?

A restart is not required but is always helpful to make the installation go quicker.
