I also tried a 30-day trial version of Adobe Acrobat Pro X, but it crashes the OS on my Mac laptop. That's what keeps me from using the Acrobat Pro Classic, because I love to use preview, annotate, and print features. Once I'm done with my document (and make copies of it), I want to be able to hand it off to trusted colleagues to annotate and edit, so I can still distribute the document right out of Acrobat. I don't want to do that with my housebound Mac computer.[...]
I've been a long time Mac user, and Acrobat Pro Classic is on my laptop because Acrobat recently offered me a 30-day free trial version of Acrobat Pro Classic. If you want to try Acrobat Pro Classic, navigate to the big white box that says . You will probably enter a dialog box that says, "You are not eligible." On the back of this dialog box, you will see the following: "Enter 30-Day Free Trial". Click on "Enter 30-Day Free Trial" and then click "OK".
After 30 days, you will be able to download Acrobat Pro Desktop. The file will be named something like "Acrobat Pro Desktop.Cartridge". You can use Acrobat Pro in the same fashion you use Acrobat Pro Classic, and Mac users should get the same benefits:
Acrobat Pro Desktop is based on Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Release 1. This document format is recommended for larger projects, but its stabilizing effects make it useful for developing and testing font, text, and character styles. In addition, Acrobat Pro 9 will soon be available as a free download from the Adobe web site. d2c66b5586
