  1. Overwrite PDF on SharePoint Online

    Our organization uses SharePoint Online provided through Office 365 hosting. SharePoint is the primary location to store files.

    It's possible to use Acrobat to open documents from SharePoint, edit them and save those changes back to the SharePoint server.

    If we open a new PDF with Acrobat, then attempt to save over an existing file on our SharePoint server, we encounter the following error:

    Adobe Acrobat could not access the network. Please verify your computer's network connection and try again.

    There are workarounds to this problem, but it would be useful to our users if Acrobat would simply save the…

  2. 'Unable to process the page because the Paper Capture recognition service experienced an error

    This has been reported on another thread and marked as solved - it isn't. I have just purchased a copy of Acrobat Pro and am unable to edit .pdf's, which is precisiely why I bought it. The subscription simply isn't worth the money without this capability.

    I have noticed some suggested solutions but these are highly technical and not something I would have access to do at work.

    Could a solution be suggested - fast - as it seems as though this is quite a common error?

  3. Side Tools should be default & Menu Dropdown should show options without having to click on open

    Return Menu Tools to the Side where they belong. They are next to useless now. Put actual menu items under the menu drop-downs instead of extra steps to open what should be a drop-down. Sorry - I hate the new look. Hate it. I should not have to navigate away from a page I'm working on in order to get to tools. I should not have to spend half an hour to discover you apparently no longer have this option. Security tools, if still in existence, should be obvious.

  5. Need to alllow editing of Livecycle forms without having to buy yet another Adobe product.

    I have multiple adobe PDF fillable forms that were create in LiveCycle when it was bundled with prior versions of Acrobat. Now I cannot edit them without purchasing LiveCycle ES4 or the product that is now replacing LiveCycle. I already pay for a 3 user license for creative cloud, and just purchased a 10 user license to Acrobat Pro DC, cost of over $350 per month...

  6. Windows 10 Free Drawing with Pen

    I ordered a pen interface device for my PC (Huion 420), excited to be able to handwrite/draw notes on PDFs, in addition to typing notes on them. However, when I have the device plugged in, the free drawing tool stops working. I can click with the mouse or try to draw with the pen/pad device. Nothing shows up. The drawing tool does, however, work with my mouse when I unplug the device. This bug is one of the main features preventing me from using Adobe Acrobat as my primary note-taking software in medical school.

  7. Ability to edit tables on pdf

    I would like to edit a table contained in the body of a pdf; however, it seems possible to only remove from the table. This would be a major time saver!

  8. text flow to next page

    Why are text edits confined to the current page? The capability to drag a text block to another page is a must-have. Ability to have text flow to the next page is much needed.

  9. FIND AND REPLACE MULTIPLE WORDS IN DIFFERENT PAGES

    Hello, I am sure that you see that there are multiple request for " find" and "replace all". I think that this is ridiculous that I have to export the PDF INTO a text file, when you do this it does not generally generate back into the same format, style before editing. I work for an agency and we create over 200k pages in a PDF FORMAT, I need to be able to edit and replace numbers and text without having to convert.
    Saves times. creating in word and text and converting to PDF is not working.

  10. Show the scale that was utilized after measuring and then saving, closing and then re-opening.

    As an architect, whenever I create a plan or document that needs to have an area measured by square feet, I use the MEASURE tool, change the scale to .250/sf, for ex. Then I save it and close it. When I need to go back in to that plan at a later date, I want to be able to highlight the measured area and show the scale that was utilized to measure the area, not just the total square foot measured.

    Any chance for this option in Preferences?

  11. Bring Back F2 to Rename Bookmarks

    F2 used to rename bookmarks. It now opens a help menu - to rename bookmarks you now have to use CTRL+F2 which is barely faster than just using the mouse. This has destroyed my usual workflow, no one asked for it. Change it back.

  12. F2 Key Remap

    Changing the default behavior of the "F2" is the possibly the most annoying feature Adobe has ever released. I'm not being hyperbolic, there was no reason to remap F2 to the help center when F1 already worked in that way.

    Additionally adding second key to the keyboard command to rename reduces the functionality of this program. When I'm editing a PDF, I am constantly editing text making me click "Ctrl+F2" is more effort and goes against common convention.

  13. Align a single object on the page

    Ability to align a single object to the left, center, right, top, bottom, middle of page. Currently, we are only able to align multiple objects in relation to each other. I just want to align an image or a text box to the center of the page, but for some reason that is not an option! This is a very basic function of every single editing program I have ever used. Why can we not do this in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC???

    To be clear: I want to align a text box on a page. NOT the text inside of…

  14. Autosave fail

    I am running Adobe Acrobat Pro DC version 2019.021.20061 on a MacBook Pro with Catalina version 10.15.04. In the Adobe Acrobat preferences I have autosave set to every 5 minutes. However, when Adobe Acrobat decided to restart for me to agree to some updated user terms all my comments on the document disappeared. From a quick google search it is clear that this is a common problem and that the autosave feature is not working, or at least only occasionally.

  16. Text Box Formatting Errors-Acrobat automatically changes/combines existing text boxes

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/combining-text-boxes-acrobat-pro-dc-2018-pc/m-p/11032569?page=1#M249220

    The link above is where this conversation is listed. You need to fix this. It makes everyone who uses your program angry and it messes up so many documents. It's ridiculous trying to do anything with it because it automatically chooses to move where the text boxes are when created in Acrobat. It's not acceptable to just say this is not an editing program. It doesn't matter. The product you provide does not fulfill the needs of your customers and it is causing MAJOR issues when trying to do just about anything related to text boxes.

  19. Invalid page range error when deleting pages

    Some documents don't use conventional page numbering, especially multi-language instruction manuals. Acrobat DC gives an "Invalid page range" error when trying to delete a range of pages. You should be able to delete pages no mater how the creator numbers them. You have to do a work-around by holding the Ctrl key and highlighting every other page, then you can delete multiple pages. This is time-consuming.
