How to Convert PDF with Adobe Acrobat XI Alternative

Home > PDF Software Comparison > Convert PDF Adobe Acrobat XI Alternative

Every company that offers products and software has its policies. For instance, Adobe has a 5-year product support system which implies that after the five years, the support service toward the product comes to an end. Following this policy, the support of Adobe® Acrobat® XI will end on October 15, 2017. Puttting an end to the support means that Adobe will stop offering some essential support services towards the users of the Adobe Acrobat XI. However, the users have a better alternative, and therefore they can avoid being stranded. This article describes the best alternative to Adobe Acrobat XI, and it outlines the steps of converting PDF with that alternative.
