Adobe Acrobat XI Pro - Blurry PDF text on Retina MacBook Pro

I have a 15" Retina MacBook Pro and Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. Whenever I open PDF's with Acrobat, the text is incredibly blurry. If I open the same PDF file with Preview.app, the text is crystal clear and beautiful. What's strange is picture seem to look completely fine in the PDF, only the text is blurry.

I also have a 15" rMBP and I've had the same issues since I installed Acrobat Pro. Looks like it just hasn't been updated for the retina display yet.

Yeah, found a post yesterday on the Adobe forums. Knowing Adobe, the support won't come until Acrobat XII in 2 years for another $200.

Doesn't it look better under Windows' HiDPI scaling mode (assuming you have Windows installed, and Adobe Reader there)?

I'm specifically talking about Adobe Acrobat XI for Mac, not sure about windows. Sounds like such a pain for clear text. Lol.
