  1. Within PDF's we often create notes and comments. The text font and size sometimes needs adjustment. Having used MS Windows all our lives we are conditioned to simply highlight the text, right-click and a pop-up box appears with "properties" listed. Unfortunately with Acrobat DC Pro "properties" is not an option. Now we must navigate 4 layers deep into the menu: View > Show/Hide > Toolbar items > Show Properties Bar

    The right-click for properties feature is widely adopted by third party software companies that want to create a seamless experience for the user within Windows. It is a necessary productivity…

  2. Yes, this can be done one at a time. Not feasible for large collection of pdfs. It was discussed in older treads but the links no longer work. Pre-flight in your Action Wizard is the most likely answer. Need SEQU file. The ones found do not work.

  3. INSANE that you can't create a hyperlink in text on a PDF in the iPad/mobile versions of the app. Literally insane, I'm sorry, I pay for the monthly subscription LITERALLY for this ONE reason - to add hyperlinks into my PDF resume - and I can't access that very simple feature on a mobile device???? And Apple has removed the ability from Preview too? Is this a business collusion?

  4. I find the need to edit the font; one example is to select text and change it to "Strikethrough" text.

  7. Windows environment.

    When using the Edit PDF Tool to change minor character styles (color, weight, underscore, etc.), the Tag structure and read order for the page the edit is applied are broken.

    For example: change the color of a header (H1) line of text. Return to the Tags Panel and all current page content has been consolidated into one <p> Tag. All the original Tags associated with this page are empty and placed randomly through the Tag Structure. Depending on page content, you may be unable to break apart the new tag single into the individual Tags necessary for compliance,…

  8. The ability to join paragraphs in a PDF so, when editing, text reflows in the document, such as in Word:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgDv5BZ-sXg&list=PL5lhrBXHZ3P-ghjTvVCMA4t_VB_H36QsI&index=3&t=0s

    And, similarly, the ability to link separate text boxes, so that text reflows between the chosen boxes:

  9. Arial disappeared and changing fonts screws up the formatting of the existing text. Most recently, it added a "!" at the end of every line of text. Trying to delete the "!" changes the margins and layouts to outside the borders. Trying to change the font messes it up even more.

    How do I fix this?

  11. Dear god. This is insane. The cursor in Reader changes itself from a bar to a circle to a bar to a cross to a circle to a bar to a cross to a circle. Completely randomly. I'm trying to work in a text document to highlight text. It's a series of professional documents that are just rows of text. Your product is completely unable to cope. I have no idea how these kinds of things get released onto the market. I know about the Ctrl key but seriously.

  12. Cannot replace a partial word. Have Find - whole word unchecked. As soon as I add something to Replace, Whole word checks and goes gray. This was marked as Resolved but it is not.

  13. When working with the Measurement Tool in Acrobat DC Pro. It should be possible to enter a measurement on a page when the scale is set. Rather than just stretching the line.

    For instance, if I wanted to see how far 22.22" is on a .125"=12" Scale.

    Currently the only way to find this measurement, is to stretch the measurement line. If Adobe would allow me to enter the 22.22", and then have the program measure that out, it would be an excellent resource.

  15. Adobe does not allow users, even users at organizations with MANY CREATIVE CLOUD LICENSES USED DAILY, to add custom fonts to Creative Cloud.

    I want to add Respective 2.0 font to a user's machine for use in document creation. She is unable to do so. Truly unacceptable that adding fonts requires Adobe to keep a pre-approved online font repository.

  16. When trying to save an edited .pdf, "the file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder" error pop-up is presented. I am the only user with it open, I have made edits to the document (not read only) and, in several cases, I am the creator of the document.

  18. Acrobat DC keeps getting stuck in - "This operation not allowed, since scanning is in progress" - mode. Cannot clear it. Cannot perform any additional functions. Have to force shutdown.Seems to happen with certain acrobat created files but not others when I attempt to recognize text or run the enhance file feature of Acrobat.

  19. After downloading a password-protected document (with password protection but authorization for form processing and saving) can only save once.

    When trying to save the document a second time (also under a different name), the error message appears:
    "The document could not be saved.
    The file is either read-only or used by another user.
    Save the document under a different name or in a different folder. "

    Unfortunately, the document can not be saved under a different name and / or folder.
