Configuring Adobe Acrobat XI Pro with SharePoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    There are multiple questions whose clarifications are required.

    Situation: Users need to open the documents in browser, check-out, edit, add comments/annotations and check-in without using Client Acrobat Reader.

    Based on the above situation, please let me know about the following:

    1. Is it mandatory to buy Adobe Acrobat XI Pro license to integrate with SharePoint 2013?

    2. Is Office Web Apps Server 2013 cannot provide the functionality as per situation so that i don't need to buy licenses for Adobe Acrobat XI Pro?

    3. If point no 1 is Yes then what is the procedure of configuring/enabling Adobe Acrobat XI Pro with SharePoint 2013.

  • What are you editing, if the answer is PDFs as a suspect it is then you will need a PDF editor such as Adobe Acrobat on each user's desktop to edit PDFs. OWA isn't a PDF editor as far as i'm aware.

    As such you'll need licenses for an editor for each user.

    The process for integrating the two is pretty straight forward, you set, either by GPO or individually, the default application for PDFs to be Adobe Acrobat.
