The current revision to Acrobat is now Acrobat XI. Adobe Reader is now in version XI and should be downloaded by all those working with PDF files. The new version of Adobe Reader supports many new features such as:
The ability to save form data without the need for Acrobat users to enable the files.
Use of all comment and review tools without the need for enabling PDF documents.
Spawning pages from templates (see the Acrobat Tips for more on this feature).
Importing button icons. Although this feature is just limited to importing PDF files. We may see support for importing image files in a later release.
Saving workspaces. In Acrobat terms this is referred to as using Tool Sets.
Marvelous new revisions for exiting text in PDF files.
Many other additions and improvements such as converting PDFs to PowerPoint files, Office 365 integration, redesigned Action tools, Acrobat.com integration, support for touch gestures, web mail integration, form enhancements, and more.
