Why Use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

Many different files can be made into the .pdf format. Although all computers have Adobe Acrobat Reader, only Adobe Acrobat Professional can actually make different files into .pdf format. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and can only “view” or read .pdf files.

Adobe Send and Track for Outlook

You can use Adobe Send & Track plug-in for Outlook to send large files as public links through Outlook. The attached files are uploaded to Adobe Document Cloud, and public links to the files are inserted in the email body.
