To paraphrase a classic sentiment from a genius author, a PDF cloud service by any other name will convert as effectively. Okay, okay, we know – we’re no Shakespeare. But we mean what we say: Adobe CreatePDF is changing its name (and its name only). From now on, this fine service for converting documents to PDF, combining documents to PDF, and exporting documents from PDF will be called…
Adobe® PDF Pack
You won’t be seeing a single change in functionality, so if you’re a current subscriber, don’t worry that we’ll be pulling any rugs out from under your feet. All the features you love to use are still here; we’re simply updating the service’s name to reflect the fact that it’s more than just a PDF creator. We even thought, “CreatePDF! wherefore art thou CreatePDF?” …Oh, never mind.
What do you think of the new name? Let us know in the comments!

Canon—one of the world’s most well-known camera and printer manufacturers—rolled out its “One-Canon” initiative to unify the company’s software footprint. For PDF, Canon turned to Adobe and delivered Adobe Acrobat to 11,000 employees—standardizing desktops with best-in-class software, eliminating compatibility issues, and simplifying IT administration.
For employees, standardizing desktops has offered additional flexibility and functionality to keep the business moving forward. Canon employees leverage the “quick tool” function in Acrobat X to tailor the toolbar for job-specific use—placing the most frequently used capabilities at employee’s fingertips. This functionality has helped improve employee efficiency, accelerate training, and reduce support costs.
Adobe Acrobat also helps improve collaboration across project teams worldwide with dependable PDF documents. With the majority of collateral originally developed at Canon’s headquarters in Tokyo and customization occurring locally, commenting and markup features enable local managers to note changes to materials, and securely share collateral with agencies for layout—creating a seamless workflow.

Due to manufacturers’ need to maintain documents and records securely, prominent petrochemical manufacturer SABIC uses Acrobat to convert paper documents to PDF files that are password protected, enabling employees to collaborate more securely and efficiently on critical business documents. By implementing Acrobat, SABIC improves collaboration electronically internally and externally with customers and suppliers using the advanced commenting tools on contracts and other documents.
With Acrobat, SABIC developed searchable libraries that provide employees quick, reliable access to important legal and manufacturing documents across the company. Most of the company’s valuable intellectual property and legal knowledge is housed in documents, and SABIC uses standards-compliant PDF/A to meet legal and ISO requirements for long-term archiving.
SABIC also uses PDF Portfolios to merge many different document types into single, collectively accessible and more protected PDF files. In addition, PDF Portfolios simplify the process of managing and reviewing complicated documents because all of the information is consolidated into an easy-to-use PDF file.
