The Acrobat Team Wants You!

We’re looking for a few good volunteers to take part in our prerelease program and be among the first to test the features and functions of the next version of Adobe Acrobat.

Over the years, the prerelease program has provided us with tremendous insight into what works and what doesn’t, what customers like and what they don’t like, and help finding possible bugs.

That early feedback has helped us build applications that are used by millions of people around the world in their everyday work to create compelling content across media and devices, anytime, anywhere.

You don’t have to be code-savvy; you just have to want to help. Prerelease participants have all kinds of experience.  So if you think you’ve got what it takes, and you’re interested in testing future versions of Adobe products, apply here.

    I like using the new features in Adobe Pro X. Having the tool menu open at the right side of a document is nice. I miss one thing that I had in Adobe 8 and that is the compare option with the red outlines around what had changed. If it is possible at least put back that legacy function included in the compare option. Many of my customers don’t like or understand the when the new compare is displayed.

      My department has yet to upgrade to Adobe X, due to the Compare function not producing the same results as Adobe 8. We work with the various Insurance Departments across the United States and several require a side-by-side of our prior form, or manual, to the proposed version using an underline strikethrough method. I have been searching for an application that can produce what Adobe 8 had, however I’ve been unsuccessful.

        Thanks for reaching out, Doug! Acrobat X has a Compare Documents feature, just as Acrobat 8 did, but the interface has indeed changed a bit. Check out this video tutorial ( for an overview of how to use Acrobat X’s Compare Documents feature. If there’s a particular aspect of the new Compare Documents function that you’d like to see changed, our engineering team would love to hear your feature request! (
