  1. File release when closing in ACROBAT

    I'm working everyday with thousands of PDF files for our repository www.ceeol.com. To maintain my overview in WINDOWS-Explorer, quite often I have to change the file names of the PDF-filess. For example, if I've downloaded 100 PDF-documents from a web page, which are a series of numbered documents, then I want to include the numbering in the file name. To do this, I have to open the files, read the number in the document, close the file again and then rename it accordingly.
    PROBLEM:
    Renaming is not possible because ADOBE-Acrobat does not release the file, even if I close…

  2. Redaction not working properly

    This expensive piece of software really is often total garbage. Gone through redacting information from 52 pages, applied it and the thing spazzes out and puts black lines everywhere that wasn't even selected.

    What the ****?

    Thought, ah, must just be something tricky with the PDF so I printed to PDF to flatten it, did it again and it just got worse!

  3. Split a pdf and retain each individual page's thumbnail name!

    Please, please, please make it so that I can split a pdf into individual pages and retain each individual page's thumbnail name! I do not want 100 pages named the same thing and just numbered 1-100. This would be so helpful in construction/architecture/engineering. The thumbnails are usually all named exactly what I need all the individual pages to be. Instead, I have to split document and then go back and rename them all to match thumbnails again. Would be such a time saver since it is already done by architects releasing the document!!

  6. W keyboard shortcut should work to insert text - please bring this shortcut back from Acrobat 11

    "W" keyboard shortcut should work to insert text. I used this every day in Acrobat 11 and was dumbfounded when I "upgraded" to DC and it was gone. Acrobat is much less useful to me (and anyone else who annotates documents for a living) without Ctrl+W, and there's no workaround in DC. There's no way I can be the only one with this problem.

  7. Redact > Find Text fails with many documents (e.g. 200) in the search folder

    This is my process under Windows 10, Acrobat acrobat DC 2015.00630527
    Open any file (a bit silly, but you need that to access the Search Text command dialogue box - without a document the 'Find text' from the Redact toolbar is not greyed out, but nothing happens when you select it. Which in itself is a kind of bug).
    Tools > Redact > From Redact toolbar select 'Find text'. A dialogue box opens. Select the folder with 200+ files. Enter the search string, make sure it is a search string that will find a hit in +200 files. Or maybe…

  8. Adobe Sensei for Acrobat

    Adobe Scan can automatically crop, resize, and reduce distortion on images, producing decent quality PDFs. To do this it uses Adobe Sensei, a form of AI. Given there is currently no way to automate these steps on Acrobat or Photoshop, and so no way to automate these steps on a desktop at all, please could you create a feature to achieve Adobe Scan level automation within Acrobat.

  9. It would be nice to be able to change the file name using without leaving the full screen mode in adobe. Also a "recent documents" dropdown

    It would be nice to be able to change the file name using without leaving the full screen mode in adobe. Also a "recent documents" dropdown module or menu near the top right that shows a list of the most recently accessed documents.

  10. Font list incomplete for editing text. Styles missing

    Acrobat's Font menu does not show all styles of installed fonts, particularly with Mac .ttc fonts (e.g. Helvetica Neue, Avenir) making it impossible to do spot edits.

  12. App crashes when editing hyperlink

    I can replicate behavior. There are comments on certain hyperlinks in a document. With the comment selected, if I click on the hyperlink and then on edit, whenever I click on Actions, the app crashes. If I edit the link without the comment selected, app works OK.

  13. Checkbox in Comments Settings for "Auto detect pen hardware to enable markup" is missing

    Adobe DC is supposed to have a checkbox in the Comments section of Settings (the last checkbox) that says "Auto detect pen hardware to enable markup". For some reason, it is missing on some of my computers that are using the same Windows 10 operating system and the same current version of Adobe DC. It is very frustrating because the absence of the checkbox means that you can't immediately markup a document with a pen and instead need to click through several layers of buttons in the comments section in order to use the pen. It is clearly a "glitch"…

  16. [BUG] Adobe Acrobat has encountered an unknown error

    We have an application that generates PDF files using Quick Report library.
    Those PDFs cannot be edited in Adobe Acrobat 2020 (Adobe Acrobat has encountered an unknown error) but they can be edited with other PDF tools such as SodaPDF.

    I tried all methods listed in this forum but nothing worked.

    The only solution is to print the PDF using the 'Adobe Printer' and then edit this file.
    It's a simple workaround but quite painful when you have to do it dozens of times per day.

    It would be nice if Adobe could provide a fix for an issue that…

  17. Bug report: "Find" function fails intermittently on large documents

    The "Find" text function in the current version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC fails intermittently when searching for text strings in larger PDF documents. This issue occurs across multiple users on multiple devices, so is not isolated to any individual installation of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Illustration attached.

  19. Global replace of text in data fields of a form.

    I simply want the global find-and-replace functionality found in most word processors to work on a PDF form. I have a 129-page application form in pdf format. It asks questions in form fields to which I respond in data fields. I wish to do a global replace of text in the data fields (say to change a name of a person/organisation). To do so, I have to take several steps which have very undesirable side-effects. I have to flatten the file. I can now use replace, but... the look-and-feel of the original document is significantly altered, the auto-orientate feature of…

  20. Viewing Bates numbering

    I have used your products for years and rely on Bates numbering often. I can not understand the way you designed the viewing in Bates before hitting ok. I can only see the top of my form or the bottom. Why on earth can't we see the complete sheet?
