Adobe Acrobat Pro DC should work as Acrobat Reader after 7 day trial
I think Adobe Acrobat Pro DC should work as Acrobat Reader after the trial period ends. This way, like in my case, people that want to buy a monthly subscription on and off can still use it as Acrobat Reader and don't need to install Acrobat Reader separately.

It does not work in Reader mode after the trial period is expired.

This indeed is the design, after the trial expires Acrobat works in reduced mode which is equivalent to using a Reader, can you elaborate on what Reader feature you miss out after your trial expires?
