Microsoft, Adobe to announce Adobe Reader software for free, free online editor
Microsoft and Adobe announced today that they will be releasing a free Adobe Reader online editor for free on Tuesday.
Users of the free Adobe software can now create, edit, and share content, free of charge, with the help of an open-source community.
The free Adobe editor for Mac will be released on October 26, and the free editor for Windows will be available on October 27.
Microsoft and the Adobe partners also announced a partnership that will allow users to make, share, and download free Office files from Adobe and other partners, including Adobe and Microsoft.
The Adobe Reader editor for macOS will be free of cost, as it will include a fully customizable user interface, which is part of the company’s ongoing effort to make the editing experience more streamlined.
Adobe said the new Mac and Windows editors will be made available on September 22, 2018, but the editor for Linux will not be released until October 28.
Adobe is also adding a new feature for Office 365, offering a streamlined version of its editing platform.
That will be included in the software, but users will be able to edit and publish documents through a more streamlined workflow.
Adobe says the new features will be rolled out to Office 365 subscribers in 2018.
Microsoft’s free online editors will also be available to all users on Tuesday, with Adobe’s new editor being available to subscribers for free.
