  3. "Scanned documents" recognize text quality

    When editing a PDF that already contains text that was converted to outlines, the "recognize text" feature redraws that already outlined text to a ****** version of the text. It's like it converts it to a low resolution image, and then outlines that image. The settings under "Enhance Scans > Recognize Text > Settings" have no influence over the "Edit PDF > Scanned Documents > Recognize Text" feature.

    Why would you reoutline already outlined text?

  7. JPEG export improvements for "Save file as" option

    Hi, can you create an option to choose which format to choose by default using the "Save file as" command. Because I often have to export a jpeg format and have a quick button for the "Save file as", but every time I have the drop-down menu in the dialog I choose the JPEG format. Just add an option to choose the default format when using the option, so anyone can use it for most export formats. Or just remember the last selected format every time you use "Save file as

  9. Selecting Items

    When editing converted graphics files it is difficult to select multi-layered items. Going through layers is an option, but much time is lost clicking on each path layer trying to find the right item. If a selection could locked or hidden much time could be saved in accessing the desired item.

  12. editing pdf and question mark boxes

    I have been editing a PDF without problem, and now all of the sudden, I have a question mark in a box, littered throughout my PDF. It seems to occur over the letter T. It also won't let me into the text box to edit any more.

    Working on a large project with a tight deadline, with hours in the project already..

  14. Adobe acrobat no usable any more... Sorry!!

    Your program hangs and struggle all the times when it opens a document. It take a time to open a document at the point it is making it unusable.

    It is not a great deal to open a pdf file, why Acrobat reader take a lot of time to open a file?

    Please make a performance update.

  15. Editing Issues

    Recently when I edit a PDF the first time, the fonts are fine. It is only after I have saved the PDF to my computer and then tried to reopen that same PDF to edit. This is where the problem occurs. I am only able to add text in some jibberish language and not the Arial font already set on the PDF. What is the fix to this as it's very frustrating??

    Another issue is after making substantial edits to the doc, the system then crashes and the file has to be closed and reopened in like a save mode.

  16. files skipped during full text index not logged or displayed

    During a full text index of over 2,000 files, a number of them are skipped. The error briefly appears in the index window, but when the process is complete that window only shows the last part of the processing and truncates the earlier messages. I turned on the preference to log errors to a file, but DC does not output those errors to a log file. How am I supposed to know which files were not indexed?

  20. Color Highlight text dont work properly

    In Swedish:
    I mitt jobb uppmanar vi kunder att aldrig använda pratbubblor som korrkommentarer då inte visar exakt var text ska korrigeras och flyttar på sig beroende på skärmförstoring.

    När man använder verktyget "färgmarkera text" gulmarkeras mer än det man markerat, oftast tecknet till höger också.
    Det ser jag som en bugg. Se bifogad pdf där paranteserna ser ut att vara markerade och avslutande punkt likaså, trots att jag inte makerat dem.
    Mvh Yvonne
