Adobe rolling out Acrobat extensions for Chrome, Edge

Adobe is rolling out new Acrobat extensions for the Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge web browsers that enable PDF editing directly from the browser window.

The new extensions allow users to mark up PDFs by adding comments, highlights or drawings from the right-hand drop-down panel, and to fill out form fields and e-sign documents in the browser.

Paid Acrobat subscribers will also have the ability to transform PDFs to Word documents, or web pages to PDFs, while retaining formatting and layout; rotate, delete or reorder PDF pages to optimise printing; and other extended capabilities.

The Chrome extension is being deployed in a phased rollout. More than 230 million PDFs have already been opened by more than 10 million Chrome users during the rollout, with the commenting tool used 2.3 million times, according to Adobe. The phased rollout of the Microsoft Edge extension will begin soon.
