Acrobat pro, I hate you and I think we’re breaking up

I never need Acrobat pro. I use preview on the Mac for my basic PDF reading, it’s lighter, so it’s a no-brainer.


today I had to review 20 PDFs, and make notes on them and even put some text in them so that I could send them off for review.

After suffering through so many stupid Adobe Updater times, when it brings my machine to a screaching high temp halt, Acrobat pro is broke.


I click a PDF to open in Acrobat and get this…

I’ve done nothing to or in acrobat, ever.

It’s been updated plenty since I installed CS3, about every three weeks it seems, i have to go make a sandwhich while the stupid updater runs.

And after all that suffering, after giving up productive cycles…. I get this…

Weak sauce!!!!

Of course I get it while I’m in San Francisco for the week, so I don’t have my install DVDs..
