  6. Remove Green Box on Button Click

    Just wanted to reach out and ask for help on removing an unwanted state appearance from a button I have created on my PDF CV.

    Basically I have created a button inside my CV so that when you click on my email at the top, it automatically opens up the users default email programme and pops in my email address in the "To" field which is the expected behaviour , I have also customised the hover sate of the button to display a small red underline which is part of my branding, what I don't like however is that when…

  8. Stop redirecting my questions from my issue like a webcam dating *****. I don't know what version I'm in!

    My screenplay is now out of screenplay alignment because the editing boxes are not individually packaged and precise. I may be able to fix it NOW with this version!

  9. Not working, rubbish

    So I bought this damned thing to edit a pdf. Is it editing the pdf? No. Can I cut? No. The cut command is greyed out. FFS.

    $276 right down the drain. Thanks so much, Adobe.

    There is no concept of a table in a PDF file.
    If you want dynamic table, you can add text form fields that are organized in a grid that resembles a table, but you would have to do this manually.
    If you want to insert a static table, the best way to do this is to go back to the original application what was used to create this document (e.g. MS Word, InDesign …)

    Let us know if it resolves your issue.

  15. when you edit the pdf, adobe pro dc doesn't put a box around every line. acrobat 5 did this and it was very easy to format my reports.

    adobe acrobat 5 was wonderful when editing it put a box around each line adobe acrobat pro dc puts one big box around everything and then when i edit everything get misaligned. my editing now is a forever nightmare. version 5 was perfect nothing got misaligned.
    please fix this bug and put a box around every line for editing

  17. "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?
