Cheerful marketing text from Adobe says

When it’s time for your best work, Acrobat Pro DC has you covered. It’s the “must-have” productivity tool that can make your life so much easier by:
  • Instantly converting paper documents into PDFs you can edit – no retyping necessary.
  • Replacing ink signatures with e-signatures, so you can get documents signed more quickly and securely.
  • Exporting content from PDFs into formatted Office files you can edit and reuse.
  • Allowing you to edit almost any PDF, without requiring the original file.
  • Providing the flexibility to work just about anywhere, on your laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

I don't recognise myself in these tasks – I generally make .pdf files from FM and Illustrator, and occasionally run OCR on a scan. So should I ditch Acrobat Pro XI in favour of DC, or stay put?

Fiery, isn’t your environment so locked down & restricted it would be ages before you’d see any upgrades anyways? Or am I mistaking you for someone else? Frankly, I see no immediate need to change from what you’re running until they stop sending security updates for it.

How nice to be recognised :-} and indeed, until recently I have been working in such a locked-down environment it's a surprise I wasn't using waldos to type on a keyboard in a fume-cupboard … but now I have a shiny new laptop and Local Admin privileges, and once I can get Them to adjust the firewall I may even be able to let the CC programs fetch their own updates.

Thanks for the input, too; I'll be quite happy to stay with Acrobat Pro until forced to migrate.
