    @Jeff, most of our staff spent a trial period with Bluebeam. All of those users were sad when the 14 days were over. If you've ever compared other image editing software to Photoshop, you know what I mean. If Acrobat Pro is MS Paint, then Bluebeam is Photoshop.

    This thread helped convinced the mgmt that we should switch to Bluebeam this month. Employees everywhere are shedding metaphorical tears of joy.

    @Ron, That's tough man. You could bring this thread to their attention; do you think they might at least offer the old version as an option?

    Hello all, guess what? You can uninstall Acrobat DC and reinstall Acrobat XI, although Adobe doesn't make this very clear. Sadly, Acrobat X is not available unless you already own a license key.

    Here's how (for WIndows):
    1. Download the Acrobat XI Pro Installer (https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/acrobat-10-11-downloads.html)
    2. Uninstall Acrobat DC via the Windows Add/Remove Programs tool.
    3. Close other programs (esp. Office, et al).
    4. Run the installer. It will ask you if you'd like to overwrite any existing files; do it.
    5. Rejoice.

    A cheaper alternative to Bluebeam is PDF-Xchange. Most of the same features (minus live, multi-user collaboration) for $50 one time. Bonus: lightweight and fast, even with hundreds of 30"x42" pages.
