  1. Editing Arabic text in pdf leads to corrupted pdf

    We discovered a word that need to be replaced during our final pdf output from Framemaker so we edited the pdf. Once we copied the Arabic word from our excel spread sheet the entire book became corrupted by scrambling letters, changing font appearances and reversing parenthesis and other characters. Need this fixed.

  2. BUG : Arabic text with ( Tashkeel ) Editing after PDF file is saved add extra spaces

    Ok here is the issue,

    When I edit PDF file using Arabic text, everything ( to some extent is fine )
    But if I just saved the file, then try to edit it again
    ( i.e. Change font, Change Color, Change size, edit the text it self )

    Arabic letters would just go wrong, attached an image showing the issue.

    I noticed that this only happen if ( Tashkeel ) is used.

    I had the same issue on both Machines : Mac OS & Windows 10.

    Also PDF attached with an example,
    if you just tried to change the Text…

  3. Bulk Changing of Font Color in Acrobat Pro XI and DC

    As also expressed in a bug report related to the changing of font colors within a PDF file, I would like to see Acrobat Pro XI and DC have the ability to change the font color of all pages - or a specified range of pages - within a given document, in one pass. Right now this process must be laboriously applied, one page at a time.

    This feature would be analogous to the Crop Tool, for instance, which does provide the ability to apply itself to all or to a range of pages within the specified file.

  4. Splitting double pages in single pages

    There should be an option to split all pages of a document in the middle. For example, when scanning books, a double page always equals one page in PDF. Cropping every page is very cumbersome

  5. multi core support adobe acrobat pro DC

    I see that Adobe Acrobat Pro DC only uses one core of the many cores today in PC.

    For example if I use OCR or improving documents, it takes a lot of time. Page per page is done using only one core.

    Please update the software that it uses more cores (like adobe premiere does). This will drastically improve the performance and our efficiency.

  6. Reverse Page order

    My problem is I audit large documents, usually multiple page documents scanned in pdf files. I often find the documents have been scanned in the wrong order ie last page first. Companies employ cheap labour and they do not care of the page order when they are scanning the document or they put it throughs the scanner the wrong way.
    A useful feature would be to have a way to reverse the order of the pages or of a number of pages very simply.
    It appears to be a common problem but I see people talking about writing scripts. I…

  7. Highlight color

    I need to change highlight colors based on the different significance of the text, but I need to select different colors from the properties menu. It really takes a lot a time, can you make a button to change colors more efficiently on the viewing page?

  8. Be able to add text without having entire document going through "edit."

    In older versions we could just add text to a document where needed. Now you have to go to Tools, Edit which then takes the time to recognizes all the text in a document. I frequently add text in all kinds of documents including charts and forms. When it goes to "recognize" the text on the full page, it distorts it to something unuseable. I end up having to open the document in Photoshop - if it will read it since usually it was scanned in first. If it won't, I have to do a screen shot, cut and paste…

  9. Hindi OCR and text recognition

    Please include Hindi text recognition while editing hindi pdf documents or exporting to MS word or RTF format.

    There is a huge market requirement for this feature and we are struggling with it currently.

  10. Activate advanced features in OpenType fonts

    I bought a font that resembles real handwriting, and in order to activate the alternate characters (i.e. type 444 and each 4 looks slightly different), it requires advanced OpenType font settings. MS Word has this, but Adobe Acrobat does not. I believe Indesign does. It would be helpful to have this feature in Acrobat Pro.

  11. Choose pen highlighting colors at the time of your choice

    In the next versions Acrobat could give the possibility to choose the color of the pen of highlighting of text, already in the choice of the tool. Maybe clicking and following would open a color palette so the user could choose the highlight color.

  12. Grouping and locking objects

    Add an ability to group/ungroup objects so they can be selected and manipulated together.

    Add an ability to lock/unlock objects and groups so they won't be selected until you command "Unlock all".

    Same as in most vector drawing programs since 1990x!!

  13. Free-hand Pen Tool

    A free-hand pen tool would be in Adobe's best interest. This tool would allow users to mark a PDF with a digital pen of sorts.

    Other document editors that are inferior in many other ways have been winning out with both myself and many other consumers because of the free-hand drawing & annotating capablities.

  15. Clean recent files list

    I often receive PDFs but after opening them, decide not to keep them and delete them. Nevertheless, the file name still appears on the Recent File List when I say I want to open a file for editing. This makes it harder to find still existing files that I want to edit. At the minimum, be able to click on a file name on the Recent File List to highlight it and then delete that name (via Delete key or pulldown option). Even better would be to also add a option that I can click on that highlights files on…

    Hi,

    This is something which is already on our radar and we are planning to support this in near future.

    Thanks for Reporting

  18. Eraser needed

    Acrobat needs an eraser tool, much like the one provided in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I work with old pdf images of recorded documents dating clear back to the 1800's; these documents have a lot of photographic "static", shadows images left by the camera which took the image photo, and these items need to be erased to give the document better readability. It is hard to describe without watching the process. If you want a demonstration, contact me and you can log into my computer and watch my process.

  19. Adding White Space via the Crop Tool Does Not Work for Some Pages

    Here is a posting I recently made to the Acrobat "Editing and Exporting PDFs" forum:

    try67 wrote: "Yes, Acrobat Pro DC can scale all the pages of the file in a single command."

    As it turns out, Acrobat Pro XI is supposed to be able to do this, but as I stated offline to try76, "... I experimented with increasing the white space around pages (to 8.5 x 11.0) in XI. The single-column test page I sent you is from a 9-page, mostly three-column document, and when I use the Cropping Tool while attempting to do this, there is one…
