Pepperdine Faculty and Staff to Receive Adobe Acrobat Pro XI

On Thursday, April 17, 2014, IT’s Device Management service will begin deploying Adobe Acrobat XI Pro to all university-owned machines.

Pepperdine faculty and staff will be able to enjoy the Pro version features, which include creating and editing PDF files and forms as well as merging and combining files into a PDF.

What do I need to do?
Nothing! All of the work will be done by the DM service with no disruption to your work. During the month of April and into May, DM will silently install Acrobat and remove older versions of Acrobat and/or Reader from your computer.

Will I notice anything?
No. In most cases the installation will be all done in the background. However, some of you (i.e. Macintosh users) might see a pop-up window like the ones pictured below.

Should you encounter these, please select “Ok” and close any instances of Acrobat or Reader. Select “Snooze” to delay the installation if it’s during an inconvenient time. You will see an alert when the process has been completed on your computer.

IT staff know the features of Adobe Acrobat Pro XI will provide many benefits to Pepperdine’s business processes.
