Staff on Deakin Desktop computers should install Adobe Acrobat from Creative Cloud Desktop.

Adobe Acrobat Pro (via Creative Cloud) includes all the functionality of Adobe Reader, but adds PDF authoring capabilities; you do not need to install both.
Adobe Reader enables you to open, view and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files. PDF files are often used for user guides and other instructions because the layout, fonts and graphics appear exactly as they were intended, regardless of what sort of computer you’re using.

Note: You cannot create or modify PDF files with Adobe Reader. Either install Adobe Acrobat Pro or get a PDF print driver such as doPDF Writer.
