[Athen] Editing Books

Hello, currently our student workers are using Adobe Acrobat Reader for
splitting books into chapters and ABBYY for making any necessary edits.
Most of the time we're just using Acrobat to split the book into chapters
by printing each chapter to a separate PDF then running it through ABBYY
for OCR.

We have an old version of ABBYY, version 11. Would there be any benefits
to upgrading to the latest version? Obviously it's newer, but are there
any compelling reasons? Also, is there any reason to use ABBYY instead of
Adobe Acrobat Pro, which some people in my office are asking for?

Thanks for your feedback.
