Adobe Acrobat PDFs are smarter.

We invented the portable document format (PDF) more than 20 years ago to make it easier to share documents across operating systems.

We also invented Acrobat — the world’s leading PDF solution.

When you create a PDF with Acrobat or one of our online services, you get a smart file that displays fonts and formatting just the way you want it to. And that’s just the beginning of our story.
