  • Adobe has unveiled its XI family of Acrobat PDF software (Acrobat XI Standard, Acrobat XI Pro and Reader XI), which now integrates with a pair of cloud services: FormsCentral for creating, distributing and analysing PDF and web forms; and EchoSign for managing electronic signatures.

    Prominent features in the new Acrobat are much-improved PDF editing, better integration with Microsoft Office applications, easier access to cloud-based repositories such as SharePoint, Office 365 and, plus IT-friendly enhancements to security and deployment (including virtualisation).

    Acrobat XI, which will ship within 30 days according to Adobe, costs £378 (ex. VAT) for the Pro version (£111 to upgrade) and £255 for Standard (£163 to upgrade). Adobe Creative Cloud subscribers will get Acrobat Pro XI automatically, but you'll need additional subscriptions to FormsCentral and EchoSign to access the full functionality of these services.

  • PDF editing
    The new Edit Text & Images tool puts all text and images in DTP-style frames that you can click and drag to resize, with automatic text reflow. You can edit text freely, and perform global find-and-replace actions. Images can be added, replaced and resized, with basic transformations available in the Format section, plus links to external editing applications.

  • Fix Reader

    I hope they fix the associated version of Reader while they're at it. In an enterprise environment, users sometimes have to enter codes to print so that different departments are charged properly. The current version of Adobe Reader doesn't play well in this area.
