Hello, With the increasing cost of Adobe software, the restrictions they place on extendable PDF forms, and the fact that Adobe has no monopoly on PDF forms generation, we are looking to replace Acrobat Professional on our campus with an acceptable, compatible, open source or lower cost PDF forms creator. Of the fee-based Acrobat Pro competitors, CutePDF offers an unlimited user, perpetual, academic site license of CutePDF Pro for $9500. That is a one-time charge, with free support and upgrades for the life of the product, unusually favorable for this age. Do any of you have experience with free or lower cost alternatives to Adobe's Acrobat? I would appreciate any recommendations you might have. Thank you!

We're looking too.  Our licenses get quickly eaten up by people who use Acrobat to just read pdfs, even though we've tried to force the default file association.  I'd love to get rid of Acrobat because of the headaches in managing it.  And with Adobe making it increasingly difficult to use KeyServer with their products, it's been a high-maintenance endeavor.

There is another alternative that I have been looking at, it is from a group called Qoppa Software and the software is called PDF Studio.  It is very reasonable priced and they are doing a lot of creative marketing and pricing to get into the University Marketplace.  Qoppa Software LLC, 1440 Dutch Valley Place, Suite 1200, Atlanta, GA (Chris Dyess and Betsy Spinks).  I actually have a demo of it on my machine and it is a very cool tool that is easy to use.  Jerry

Has anyone looked at Foxit? I don't know anything about them except from a quick look at their site. --henry schaffer "Foxit is a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents and forms. Customers choose Foxit products since they are fast, affordable, secure, and easy to deploy." http://www.foxitsoftware.com/ ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
Sounds like it's worth comparing a number of them.  Here's one site that breaks out some of the dimensions for comparison, although it doesn't have all the ones mentioned (does have CutePDF).

I have not tested this myself, but I've heard that Office 2013 will have the ability to convert and edit PDF. I'm not sure that it will have all of the functionality that you are looking for. The link below is to an article that discusses the feature's potential. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2407353,00.asp Christina Gonzalez, MS, CSM, ASM Software Licensing Analyst Dept. of Information Technology Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi 361-825-3444
I fell a matrix coming on...

Would anyone be interested in doing a shared Google spreadsheet sort of thing where we could list features and provide feedback on the Acrobat replacements we've had experience with or test?

I could pull some of the data from the matrix on the "top 10" list web site, in terms of what features we want to compare and throw one together over the next week or so (I'm out of the office til next Thursday).

I agree. Great Idea

I second that (Qoppa). Key feature that students and faculty will like is grading, editing, and group-write on docs. Student technology fees are a good source of funding for this. So even with other vendors for faculty/staff only, can complement and have win-win with students.

Out of our discussion has grown a project here at UNCG to look at potential replacements for Acrobat.  I'm hoping to combine input from our campus clients and ITS consultants with input from this list and share what we learn.

I'm also meeting with our new regional Adobe in the next week or so to discuss a number of issues related to changes in how we're deploying software on campus, through Citrix, and the issues that have arisen regarding licensing.  Leading us to consider more cost effective solutions to our clients' needs with a more enlightened approach to licensing in the age of virtualization and remote access.

Happy New Year Everyone! The University of California has an Adobe Acrobat Term Site License (TSL) agreement that will expire shortly, so we're evaluating options for how best to proceed after that. Thanks to all for sharing the helpful information below regarding Acrobat alternatives. We wanted to touch bases to see if anyone has conducted any further analysis and comparison of the Microsoft (Office 2013) and other Acrobat Pro alternatives noted below and, if so, are you able to share your resulting top Acrobat alternatives? Thanks in advance for any insight you can share!

As I've  been promising, we're about to start comparing these.  And Office 2013 is a prime candidate for a replacement.  There's clearly a battle going on between the two, as Adobe made some significant changes in terms of editing functionality in version 11.  I've also collected the names that others sent me when I first asked about it here, which I'll be happy to share.

I'm hoping we'll be able to kick this off shortly.

Message from russ.born@oregonstate.edu

I’ve found most people use the terms Acrobat, Adobe, Reader, and PDF interchangeably.  I’m guessing your faculty don’t really know what they’re talking about, but don’t tell them I said so.  For the purposes of grant submission, it shouldn’t really matter how the PDF is created….that’s the whole point of PDF (in theory, anyway).  That said, my impression is that most of our faculty are using Acrobat.

Subject: Re: [LICENSING] Replacement for Adobe Acrobat Professional?

 

On my campus, and to some extent, at the other University of California campuses, we have begun to evaluate alternatives to Acrobat Pro.

 

We have found that many faculty will not switch products because the NIH and/or other granting agencies require proposals to be submitted via Acrobat. (This previous sentence is paraphrasing faculty remarks – I do not know how correct it is.)

 

When I asked a Nuance rep about this, he reported this reply from NIH:

 

NIH and other PHS agencies require all text attachments to the SF424 (R&R) application forms to be submitted as PDF files. Applicants should prepare text attachments using any word processing program (following the format requirements in Section 2.6) and then convert those files to PDF before attaching the files to the appropriate component in the application package. (The PDF format is used to preserve document formatting.)

 

As faculty may be more comfortable with recommendations from other faculty than from IT, can any of you point to faculty who routinely use products other than Acrobat when submitting grant proposals?

If you just need your docs in pdf, then both MS Office and Libre Office print directly to pdf, as do browsers. We also install CutePDF on machines we build. This is free and saves anything printable as pdf.

We have found that many faculty will not switch products because the NIH and/or other granting agencies require proposals to be submitted via Acrobat. (This previous sentence is paraphrasing faculty remarks – I do not know how correct it is.)

 

When I asked a Nuance rep about this, he reported this reply from NIH:

 

NIH and other PHS agencies require all text attachments to the SF424 (R&R) application forms to be submitted as PDF files. Applicants should prepare text attachments using any word processing program (following the format requirements in Section 2.6) and then convert those files to PDF before attaching the files to the appropriate component in the application package. (The PDF format is used to preserve document formatting.)

 

As faculty may be more comfortable with recommendations from other faculty than from IT, can any of you point to faculty who routinely use products other than Acrobat when submitting grant proposals?

As I've  been promising, we're about to start comparing these.  And Office 2013 is a prime candidate for a replacement.  There's clearly a battle going on between the two, as Adobe made some significant changes in terms of editing functionality in version 11.  I've also collected the names that others sent me when I first asked about it here, which I'll be happy to share.

I'm hoping we'll be able to kick this off shortly.

We discovered PDFCreator (http://www.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator) a few years ago and liked it so much we put it on our desktop image.

Small footprint, huge impact.

I’ve found most people use the terms Acrobat, Adobe, Reader, and PDF interchangeably.  I’m guessing your faculty don’t really know what they’re talking about, but don’t tell them I said so.  For the purposes of grant submission, it shouldn’t really matter how the PDF is created….that’s the whole point of PDF (in theory, anyway).  That said, my impression is that most of our faculty are using Acrobat.

Thomas,
It looks like, to replace the capabilities of Acrobat Pro, we would need Architect too, right?

Others - have you gotten the ability to merge PDFs to work at all in Word 2013?  It doesn't seem to be included - I have to convert them all to Word, copy paste like crazy, then save as PDF.  Is that right?

Happy New Year Everyone! The University of California has an Adobe Acrobat Term Site License (TSL) agreement that will expire shortly, so we're evaluating options for how best to proceed after that. Thanks to all for sharing the helpful information below regarding Acrobat alternatives. We wanted to touch bases to see if anyone has conducted any further analysis and comparison of the Microsoft (Office 2013) and other Acrobat Pro alternatives noted below and, if so, are you able to share your resulting top Acrobat alternatives? Thanks in advance for any insight you can share!

As far as I know, yes, you have to do the conversion to Word first, then export.  But you shouldn't have to cut and paste.  On the Insert tab on the ribbon choose "Object" in the Text group, and then "Text from file" and you can browse to the file and it will be added to the document.

Meant to add that it will then automatically convert the pdf doc to a Word doc and insert it.

I think it has been said before, but Word 2013 lets you open every pdf file we have found, edit and save as pdf.

I have noticed some funkiness in formatting for some pdfs, mostly things that are forms, but by and large the formatting preservation is very good.
