So i have the Adobe Acrobat XI Standard(11.0.23) and I'm using it to edit PDFs,the problem was that with only the Acrobat XI i couldn't preview PDFs in preview pane,so I installed Adobe Reader DC.Now i can preview PDFs but there is no way i can add images to a PDF when i try it in Acrobat XI, it tells me that i have a newer version of Adobe in my PC and I have to use the DC version for that action,but i can't use the reader to edit PDF.So the question is,is there anywat that i can solve both problems?
Adobe used to allow Reader and Acrobat on the same computer, but they are stopping it now. I think they do not want people who choose not to upgrade Acrobat to get new features for free instead.
But there is no new feature,i mean the preview and the edit by adding a image on to the PDF is nothing new.Did they just disable the preview pane for the older versions of Adobe?
But there is a new feature. You are using a constantly changing system (Windows 10). At some point a few years ago, Windows 10 broke the preview in Acrobat, and after some shaky starts, Adobe managed to add the new features needed to get previews working again.
Hence, if you won't upgrade, you don't get the new features needed.
For some reason people don't view the work needed to keep up with Microsoft and Apple as real work, which should be paid for. Some companies have gone out of business, especially with Apple Mac software, because they couldn't afford to do all that work. To give this work away free means smaller companies are subsidising Microsoft's and Apple's profits, and I don't think that's right.
What version of MS Windows does you use?
Windows 10 Pro (21H2)
Install the 32-bit version of Reader DC and it will allow you to have both at the same time.
I think I will use Powertoys from microsoft instead.

I tried but it didn't work.

Foxit Reader is a better choice.
