  1. No font samples on Acrobat on Mac Os

    The font list on Mac Os Acrobat is in the standard font- see screenshot (usually each font name is shown in its style so you understand what it looks like more or less).
    On Acrobat on Mac Os in order to see what font looks like you need to apply it to the text in the document - so you literally need to apply 100 fonts to see what they are when looking for the right one.
    In short - there is no preview samples of fonts on the list like there is on Acrobat on Windows. I had to…

  2. Preview Fonts in Drop-down List

    I've just started using Adobe Acrobat DC, continuous release. I noticed when editing a document, if I select the drop down list of fonts, all of them show the exact same font type in the list. This is really unhelpful, because I don't know what any will look like.

    This leaves me with two options. One, choose a font, see what it looks like, and keep it; or if I don't like it go back, click the drop down list, and re-scroll all the way through to find the next font in line and try that one. If I don't…

  3. Convert text to path

    There needs to be a simple way to convert text to path. (The utility of this is begin able to use parts of the pdf file in illustrator without having the fonts.) Googling this shows there is demand for the feature. Currently the feature sort of exists in the "flatten transparency" settings, but it does not work correctly if there is no transparent feature in the pdf. The workaround is to add a watermark or other transparent object, THEN edit the flatten settings. Silly workaround for a common enough need. I'd call this a bug, since the flatten options clearly…

  5. Acrobat Pro DC – Text Watermark Font Bug

    Mac OS X 10.13.6
    Acrobat Pro DC – Version 2021.001.20138

    Inserting a text watermark using the Helvetica Neue font enters a series of boxes instead of the text. All weights and slopes affected except, bizarrely, the ‘Thin’ weight.

    Inserting text using the Helvetica Font produces the error message “The font ‘Helvetica,Xxxx’ contains an invalid encoding. Some characters may not display correctly”. This error message appears on saving the PDF and every time it is opened in Acrobat Reader DC.

    Both fonts are system fonts and work satisfactorily in all applications (e.g. InDesign, Word) including Acrobat Pro DC, but not as…

  6. Single button converter for Metric to English (without loss of image quality)

    We get documents form a few of our clients in metric sizes. But we only print in English sizes. "Fit' or "shrink to fit" in the print screen works but it alters the sizes of the text and results in off center paragraphs and blocks of text.
    Would be nice if we could just go to a tool that would reposition the images and text to fit on standard English sizes.

    An alternate solution might be if we could reflow the text onto blank standard sheets (and resize images with handles) as needed.

  7. Common punctuation is not currently available: Em Dash

    In MS word or ppt, if you click 2 hypens -- and then a space, it turns the 2 hyphens into an em dash. In google docs, you have to select substitutions and find the right dash (it's a pain, but you can do it). In Acrobat, I want to insert an em dash and I can't see how to do it, so I'm stuck using 2 hyphens -- and it looks very unprofessional.

  9. Adobe not opening pdf attachments from WORD doc to PDF doc.

    Adobe MUST create automatic links generated by the system to open pdf attachments migrating from a WORD document, Presently a pdf attachment from WORD to PDF DOES NOT OPEN IN THE PDF DOCUMENT! This is not business friendly. the customer should not have to learn how to create links for the PDF attachments to open!

  10. Insert special characters or symbols directly in Adobe

    It would be nice if there would be a menu available to insert special characters or symbols directly in Adobe, as is available in f.e. Word.
    Now, you have to use the ALT code or you need to copy paste the special character from a different application to Adobe.

  15. Quick Tools overflow menu

    Some tools are not usable when accessed from the overflow ("meatballs") menu of the Quick Tools toolbar. Tools such as Change color, Change line thickness, and Text Properties are not usable if they are in the overflow menu (because the window size is too small to fit all the Quick Tools).

  17. Tab Color

    Set tabs to colors when working with more than one file helps to differentiate and sort. EXCEL allows tabs to be colored. Similar to that. Thank you.

  19. 8 PAGE FILE WILL NOT CONVERT TO OCR

    I am trying to edit an 8 page document and when it is about 5 pages through the conversion process to OCR it closes and does not complete. It would be nice if I could still edit a document without it needing to convert to OCR. I always undo OCR anyways.

  20. BUG REPORT - Read Only PDFs are editable on iOS devices using Acrobat App

    Situation
    A fillable PDF was created to be used as a template when bidding jobs. The PDF was placed on OneDrive and the permissions were changed to read only as to not be able to save over the blank template. When the file is open on a PC with the Acrobat DC application, the file works as intended and the user is forced to "save as" and not allowed to overwrite the blank template. When opened on an iPhone or iPad, the read only permission is completely overridden and the blank template is allowed to be edited and overwritten.
