Why do people not understand the difference between Adobe Reader (the free viewer program) and Adobe Acrobat Pro (the commercial creator product)?

This entry is for READER.

I disagree - The app installs and opens OK but then quickly quits. I have done a fresh install and performed the 10.1 update but still nothing.

Please disregard…Seems I had a registration conflict with another CS application. Now all is working well.

this is what adobe is writing about:
"(Lion) Acrobat 10.1 or Reader 10.1 don't support Lion. For example, the Adobe Application Manager doesn't exit after the user enters the Serial Number. This issue also occurs with Acrobat 10.0. This issue doesn't occur on Mac OS X 10.6. [2881500]"

I am looking at that Adobe page now and there is nothing in there about Lion. Have they perhaps removed this text because Apple fixed the problem in later Lion releases?

This is what Adobe is saying on 7/20

Acrobat family
Adobe Reader plug-in and Acrobat plug-in are not compatible with the Safari 5.1 browser, which will ship with Mac OS X 10.7 and for 10.6 in July 2011. Adobe Reader and Acrobat will continue to work as standalone applications on Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.6, and will render PDF documents outside of the browser. In addition, Safari 5.1 renders PDF documents natively. However, the Adobe Reader and Acrobat plug-ins will not function as expected in LiveCycle and Acrobat workflows that require either plug-in to render PDF documents in Safari 5.1.

I just spoke to Acrobat Tech Support on the phone and they told me that a) trial version is not downloadable and b) it won't work "properly" with 10.7. Whatever that means. I refrained from spending U$ 450. Too bad.

Not sure exactly when it happened but sometime around upgrading to 10.7 OCR on Acrobat Pro 9 started causing the application to crash. Tried complete reinstall of the application as well as removing preferences etc to no avail.

There are numerous reports of Adobe X (10.1.1) crashing when using the OCR tool in Lion (OSX 10.7.2). After as little as three pages scanned in OCR the program crashes and the document is gone. The document can't be found under "open recent" files in the file menu.

People have completely uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Acrobat X without fixing the issue.

Wow, this sounds so wonderful. I just can't WAIT to wind up with this disastrous combination.
