++ PDFMaker for PowerPoint 2016 (32-bit, version 15.19 or later) and for Word 2016 (32-bit, version 15.22 or later)

Additional information

Versions marked with parentheses and a version number require the installation of the correct Acrobat update to work with PDFMaker. For example, Acrobat 8 and earlier versions don't support Office 2007 or Office 2007 files.

Acrobat 10.1 adds PDFMaker support for these Office 2010 64-bit applications: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook. Acrobat 9 and earlier users can create Adobe PDF files using the Adobe PDF printer. For more information, see PDFMaker unavailable in 64-bit Office 2010.

PDFMaker is unavailable for 64-bit AutoCAD before Acrobat DC.  Customers can create Adobe PDF files by using the Adobe PDF printer in Acrobat XI and earlier.

PDFMaker-compatible applications for newer versions of Acrobat and Reader

For version DC (April 2015) or later, see Compatible web browsers and PDFMaker applications.
