77. About Acrobat Distiller


Most Acrobat users, when asked the question, “What's the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader?” will say something along the lines of, “Reader only lets you view PDFs. Acrobat creates PDFs.” While true in spirit, technically it is the Distiller application that creates the actual PDF file in most cases. Acrobat is used primarily to view, edit, and add functionality to existing PDFs. For this reason, Distiller is often referred to as the “PDF engine” behind Acrobat.
