One of my proofreading clients wants their proofreaders (me) to use Acrobat DC and NOT the Pro version. I have the Pro version as I have Creative Cloud etc. Is there a way I can download and install a separate Acrobat DC (NOT PRO) version to use for this client? I've tried and it just defaults to my Pro version. I cannot uninstall the Pro version as I use it for other clients. Thank you for your help.
You could try right-clicking on a PDF from the windows explorer, click to open Properties. In the Opens with section, click the Change button to select Acrobat DC to open ALL PDF's. The trick will be if you want to open a PDF in Pro you will need to rightclick the document and click on "open with" to select the application. Or you could simply use this method without changing the default program.
maybe you could try running the app in a virtual environment. But of course that would require you to obtain another OS license. If it's a temporary assignment, you could try VirtualBox.org and download a copy of Windows 10 from Microsoft Virtual Machines - Microsoft Edge Developer keeping in mind the VM expires after 90 days.
I don't understand why. As far as I know, if all you're doing is providing mark-up using commenting, it should work and save the same in both Acrobat Standard and Acrobat Pro.
