    • Bug Report: Organize does not show image

      If I am working for several hours in acrobat dc, the organize feature will show only blank pages... no content. I have to close the program and restart it to view the images. It will work for about 20-30 minutes and then do the same thing. UGH.

      • Hyperlink to first occurrence of a range name

        I have created a PDF file from an Excel Workbook. Each tab in the workbook has a range name that is in the "rows to repeat at top". I have a table of contents that hyperlinks to each of these range names in each worksheet. When the PDF is created, sometimes a worksheet will become 2 pages. The hyperlink shows at the top of both pages (because it is in the "rows to repeat at top"). When I click on the hyperlink in my table of contents, it always goes to the range name in the second page rather than…

        • Adobe Acrobat Windows 10 Crash

          My Acrobat DC is randomly crashing and I don't know why. I have unistalled and reinstalled it twice. I have done EVERYTHING on your webpage about fixing crashes. Nothing helps.

          • Bug: Add to an already made selection with the mouse

            If you already have an object selected and need to add to that selection the common universal procedure is to hold down the shift key on the keyboard while clicking the object you want to add to the already made selection. It works fine unless you have the "Output Preview" window open. In that case instead of adding to a selection it creates a new sticky note. You used a universal keyboard/mouse combo for "adding to a selection" to instead create a new sticky note but only when "Output Preview" is open. This needs to be changed to a different…

            • Arabic script with Fill & Sign

              This topic has been discussed before, but I want to share one thing the team might find useful.

              Now we tell all Acrobat users that Adobe Fill and Sign doesn't support Arabic. But when you look at it, we are able to type Arabic very well on Desktop machines and mobile devices.

              On a Mac for instance, as an Adobe CC subscriber, I have to choose English in Preferences for my Acrobat language in order to show [ Fill & Sign, Send and Track, and Send for Signature ] features in Tools workspace. If I go and change Acrobat language…

              • Tab order feature

                The field view is entirely too small to manually edit tab order. This should either be a separate pane or perhaps a pop-out window. I easily have over 100 fields on one page and it's impossible to order them as I need to (by column, within a section or rows of fields). Default tab ordering structures (By Row, By Column) are not useful here. Need more flexibility to set tab order manually.

                • Save Downloaded File in Any Location

                  Now when you download a file from the web and have Acrobat installed as the default handler, it automatically downloads the file on Windows to C:\Downloads, not to the actual configured downloads folder, which might be on another drive or in a different location. Acrobat should have a configuration which A) allows you to configure a default location, or B) Asks everytime, defaulting to the last, where to save the file.

                  The amount of time spent Saving-As then deleting the originally downloaded file is stupid.l Just let us put the file where we want it from the start.

                  • PDF Thumbnails in PDF Portfolio : Portfolio/ View / Layout

                    In Acrobat Pro DC 2015 Classic & Acrobat Pro 2017 the PDF icons on the left are quite large in Portfolio / View /Layout . It would be great if PDF Thumbnails could be enabled like in Windows explorer by checking the preference in General . I realise not all file thumbnails for all types of files could easily be created ( example Excel , Word )etc ..but we combine a lot of PDF secured files into a Portfolio & the thumbnail PDF view would really be a great feature in Portfolio/View / Layout

                    • Plug-in toolbars keep disappearing

                      A fix is required for anyone using third party plug-ins that have found that the plug-ins have gone after an update. This was reported by Enfocus at the following url: https://www.enfocus.com/en/support/known-issues-and-solutions#!/SupportPortalSolution?id=501570000018YbEAAU

                      They are claiming it is an Adobe Acrobat issue rather than their plug-in. Either way, it's frustrating and needs to be resolved

                        • Insufficient data for image in Internet Explorer

                          I am working on a software that generates PDF using ABBYY FineReaderEngine 11 and presents those PDFs to the users in Internet Explorer. The image compression algorithm used is JP2K.

                          Some of the PDFs generated are sending the error "Insufficient data for image". The problem can occur on very precise document (as for the example file attached), but also in a random way on other non specific documents. It is really hard to determine if it is created by a certain type of document.

                          Our users are using Adobe Acrobat Standard 11.0.20 with Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.18665CO (Adobe plugin version :…

                            • Acrobat pro 2017 can`t re-arrange sort order after creating Portfolio

                              when adding another file it goes to the end . In older versions of Acrobat Pro you could sort & re-arrange Portfolio files
                              tried that workaround where you create a new column in view /portfolio details & edit the values to get the files in the proper order sequence .. bit that is a bit of a kludge & really doesn`t affect the printing order of individual Portfolio files or default view when opening

                                  Adobe PDF Printer should be installed automatically when installing Acrobat DC. Instructions for manual installation are incomplete. Everything worked great until recent update failure and reinstallation.

                                  • Plug in Icons missing if we do not open documents as tabs (Pitstop and Prinergy)

                                    After installing the last Updates we have an all Clients with Acrobat Pro the problem that the Icons from Plugins such as Pitstop are missing under Tools. The problem only exists if we start Acrobat without the Option to Open documents as new tabs in the same window. If we start Acrobat with the option enabled, everything is normal.

                                    The Clients are on Windows 10 64bit and Windows 7 64bit. We have the latest Acrobat Pro DC Version 2017.012.20095

                                    • Precise placement of objects in Prepare Form and Edit Form

                                      I would like to see a "transform" capability similar to InDesign, with a panel or set of boxes in which the actual pixel X & Y coordinates, as well as the dimensions of an object, can be precisely set. Currently, the resolution on this type of placement appears to be set at 2 points, and I would like to be able to fine-tune that to pixels or 10,000ths of an inch as I can in InDesign. That's the basic idea, but read on for rationale.
                                      I work mainly in InDesign to create pdf forms that I then take into Acrobat…

                                      • Snapshot of PDF page for export to JPG has bugs

                                        If you open those files in Acrobat, and use the snapshot feature, then "control-a" to select everything, you will see differences in each one. In each case, on the right side, the app selects more than it should be selecting. For example, the sample with inset and color has a small band of white on the right side that is included in the selection that should not be. This was a bug in Acrobat 9. I was hoping to find this problem fixed in this version, but it is not. I only discovered this recently, because I started adding background…

                                        • Does acrobat have access to my computer?

                                          Whenever I use acrobat, my mouse seems driven by commads - not mine - to do things in acraobat. Things like scrolling, moving mouse, opening other windows in acrobat. Is it a ghost or is it Adobe?
