Answers / Adobe Reader
I have an Apple Macbook Pro laptop made in 2009. I am running operating system version OSX 10.9.1. Which version of Adobe Reader should I be using? I already have Adobe Reader X version 10.1.9. In the adobe website I have come across a list of versions of "Adobe Reader for Mac" and also versions "X" as well as "XI".The version I have works well enough but am I missing some functionality?

One more vote for "always use the latest possible version", and let me provide another angle as to why: Chances are that you will get a more reliable version. Even though both Reader X and XI are currently supported, it is likely that Adobe fixed problems in XI that were found in X and is not going back to fixing these in the older version. This plus the additional features are you getting with Reader XI makes this an obvious choice.

If you can, you should upgrade. Reader XI offers a lot of new features that were not available in previous versions, like the ability to add comments of many kinds to any non-secured file (even if the Extended Reader Rights were not applied to it), as well as the option to spawn pages and embed (PDF) images into button fields.

The rule of thumb with Reader is to get the newest version for your operating system.
That means, get Reader XI.
As it has been said in another message, there are some considerable advantages in using Reader XI, when it comes to using forms and other features.
Hope this can help.
