There are several options for reading and editing PDF documents nowadays but Adobe Acrobat Pro was the first. This Professional version of the software gives you the power to create, read and modify PDF documents.
Adobe Acrobat Pro DC gives you several different views to read PDF documents including different degrees of zoom. Most importantly, it allows you to edit documents, comment on them, add stamps, watermarks and signatures as well as export them to a variety of formats including HTML and Postscript.
You can create PDFs from a variety of sources, including files, scanned documents and web pages. You can also combine and merge documents, create a PDF portfolio and use a variety of tools to add multimedia, create PDF forms, add digital signatures and much more.
