Edit text in a PDF
Fix a typo, change a font, or add a paragraph to your PDF as easily as you do in other applications using a new point-and-click interface.
Find editing tools faster
No more searching to find the right tool for the job. With the new Edit Text & Images tool, all you have to do is click the text you want to edit, and the right tool appears in the editing panel.
Use the PDF editor to edit text
With Acrobat XI, you can edit text as easily as you do in other popular applications. Now, just point and click to correct a typo, change a date or a font, or add new text.
Automatically reflow paragraphs
Need to update text in an existing PDF paragraph? It’s easy. Simply add or delete your text, or drag to resize the paragraph box. Then watch the paragraph automatically reflow to reflect your changes.
Find and replace text in a single step
If you realize a word or name is misspelled throughout your document — or you need to update a phrase or date — you can search your entire PDF file and correct every instance in one simple step.
Convert PDF files to PowerPoint
Get a head start on new projects by saving a PDF file as a fully editable PowerPoint presentation.
Quickly convert PDF to PPTX
Don’t just settle for pictures of slides. Use the new Save As Presentation feature to turn your PDF into a high-quality PPTX file that you can edit and update in your PowerPoint application.
Spend less time reformatting
When you convert your PDF to PowerPoint, your formats are saved, too — so you’ll spend far less time reformatting bulleted text, tables, objects, and master layouts.
Export just the information you need
If you only need some of the information in your PDF presentation, it’s fast and easy to select and export just the portion of the slide you need.
Save time with copy and paste
You can copy and paste select parts of your PDF file into any application file — including a new or existing PowerPoint presentation.
Create new PDF and web forms
Customize professional templates or design from scratch with the Adobe FormsCentral desktop app included in Acrobat XI Pro.
Build forms faster
Get started quickly with a predesigned template that’s easy to customize. Or build a form from scratch using the intuitive drag-and-drop form editor.
Collect information with PDF or web forms
It’s easy to create a PDF form that anyone can complete using free Adobe Reader. It’s just as simple to create and publish a web form* that virtually anyone can fill out in a web browser.
Help people fill out forms correctly
Guide people through your form by including help text and required fields. If you’re building a web form, you can add skip logic so people see only the questions that apply to them. You can also add payment options such as PayPal.
Choose how you distribute forms and collect data
You can extend your FormsCentral desktop app by signing up for an online account to publish forms and review results online. Or, you can distribute your PDF forms using the Tracker tool built into Acrobat.
Standardize routine PDF tasks
Make it easy to create PDFs consistently. Guide people through the correct series of steps with Actions.
Prepare files the same way every time
Make sure no one misses a single step. Use an automated or guided Action to consistently and quickly complete PDF preparation tasks.
Work faster with automated Actions
Whether you’re dealing with a single PDF or a large batch of files, prebuilt Actions let you run a sequence of tasks automatically with a single click.
Get help completing multistep tasks
For more complicated tasks, like publishing sensitive information, guided Actions will walk you through every step. You can even stop, restart, skip, or rerun an Action if you need to.
Create and manage your own Actions
Use built-in Actions — or create your own. If your company’s procedures change, an Action can be quickly updated and centrally managed.
Edit images in a PDF
Resize, replace, and adjust images in your PDF with no need to track down the original file or graphic.
Edit images right inside your PDF file
If you need to move, crop, resize, or replace a graphic object in your PDF file, it’s as simple as pointing and clicking.
Find editing tools faster
No more time-consuming tool searches. With the new Edit Text & Images tool, just click the image or object you want to edit. Acrobat XI automatically presents the best tools for the task.
Work with your favorite image editor
When you need to make more sophisticated edits, click an image to open it in an external editor like Adobe Photoshop. Once revised, the image is automatically updated in your PDF.
Click and choose to add images to your PDF file
Whether you want to pop in a photo, insert an illustration, or include a bar chart for visual interest, it’s quick and easy to add graphics to existing PDF files.
Collect form responses with FormsCentral
Easily collect responses by moving your PDF or web forms online with the Adobe FormsCentral online service.
Distribute PDF or web forms
Activate a FormsCentral account online so you can do more with the FormsCentral desktop app included with Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. Sign in to bring your form online. Add a submit button to your PDF form, and then share it easily. Or embed your form into a website.
Collect responses in tables
Once your form is published, sit back and watch the results roll in. Responses are displayed in a table you can search, sort, and filter. You can also export data to a spreadsheet or database application for further analysis.
Analyze results in real time
Every time a recipient clicks Submit, results are automatically updated and presented in a summary report that’s filled with color-coded, easy-to-read bar graphs and pie charts. Save your report as a PDF. Or copy and paste individual charts into Microsoft PowerPoint for a visual presentation.
Approve with electronic signatures
Keep projects moving. E-sign your approval right on the PDF. No need to print, fax, or mail the document.
Add your electronic signature to a PDF
Sign a PDF in seconds. You can type or draw your name, insert an image of your signature, or use a certificate signature.
Work with certificate signatures
If your company has given you a certificate-based digital ID, you can add a certificate signature to a PDF. This lets recipients verify that the file is authentic and really from you using tools in Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
Manage your signed documents online
Manage and store signed files more efficiently by accessing the Adobe EchoSign online service right from Acrobat. Upload your signed document or get others to sign documents. Free and paid subscriptions are available.
Get others to sign documents
Get the green light faster. Send PDFs to others for signature approval, and track them online using the Adobe EchoSign service.
Get PDFs e-signed by email
Need a document signed? Just email it, and your recipient will be able to sign, save, and send it back to you using free Adobe Reader on his or her computer or mobile device.
Collect e-signatures through EchoSign
Make paper signatures a thing of the past with Adobe EchoSign. You can get files e-signed in under an hour on average with a free or paid subscription to the web’s #1 electronic signature service.
Track and store signed documents
Instead of tracking signatures yourself, let EchoSign do it for you. You can send reminders, forward documents or contracts to another approver, and store everything online.
Let anyone sign with certificates
With Acrobat XI Pro, you can enable Reader users to sign your PDF files with certificate IDs provided by their companies.
Apply PDF passwords and permissions
Get expert protection without being an expert. Add copy and edit protection to any PDF — even right from Microsoft Office applications in Windows.

If you’re a Windows user, just check the Protect PDF box in Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, or PowerPoint to help prevent others from editing your PDF files.
Restrict editing with passwords in Acrobat
The new Restrict Editing tool is a fast, easy way to keep others from copying and editing content in your PDF files.
Fine-tune file permissions
Help prevent people from opening, printing, commenting on, or adding pages to your PDFs with the Encrypt tool.
Make file protection easy for your team
Create custom security policies to help everyone apply PDF passwords and permissions more consistently. You can even set up guided Actions to walk people through needed steps.

Send fewer email attachments
Merge project information — including spreadsheets, web pages, and photos — into a single PDF you can easily email, archive, or send out for review.
Get a thumbnail view before you merge
Now you can arrange and preview files and individual pages before you merge them into a PDF. To rearrange, drag and drop pages until they’re organized just the way you want them.
Get fast access to files stored online
If you want to include a document that’s stored on an online storage site, like Microsoft Office 365 or SharePoint, find it fast with shortcuts.
Present the big picture in a PDF Portfolio
When simple merging isn’t enough, you can use Acrobat XI Pro to combine and share your project material in a PDF Portfolio that reflects your company’s brand and is easy to navigate.
Integrate with SharePoint
With Acrobat, it’s simple and convenient for you to retrieve, open, and save PDFs stored on your company’s SharePoint server.

Now you can complete more common tasks without leaving Office — like converting a doc to PDF or creating and sending a PDF for review. Acrobat Pro users can even create a PDF and run an Acrobat Action.
Preserve more than your look and layout
Smarter than your average PDF, the PDFs you create with Acrobat remember all the formatting information contained in your Office files. So it’s easy to convert them back to Office files in the future.
Convert Word to PDF for reliable viewing
When you use Acrobat XI to convert a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file to PDF, people will see it just like you sent it — whether they’re viewing it on a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Combine files in a PDF Portfolio
Share your work in a PDF Portfolio that presents materials professionally with an interactive impact.
Make your point, and make an impression

Now, the Combine Files dialog box lets you drag and drop your files into the perfect position before creating a PDF Portfolio. You can also quickly rearrange them later.
Meet PDF accessibility standards
Acrobat XI helps you create and verify PDFs that meet accessibility standards, so people with disabilities can interact with your PDFs.
