  1. Text Add Tool Reversed

    i was adding text to a PDF via the Add Text tool. it suddenly started to type backwards and across the page with large gaps between the letters. i restarted my computer and the problem persisted in the same file. i did nothing to change the settings when this happened--it was 100% spontaneous. i had no way to undo this bug and i had to create a new document to get it to stop.

  3. Bug Report: Split PDF function not working

    When I use the split PDF, I select split by "Top level bookmarks" and "The same Folder Selected at Start" for "Target Folder" and "Use bookmark names for file names" under "File Labeling" under "Output Options". Then I click "Ok" and click on "Split".

    I receive an error message that says "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."

    However, the file is NOT ready-only and no one else has the file open because it's saved in a local folder on my computer's…

  6. When adding text to a page, I am only able to enter one character at a time

    When I am typing in a text box, I am only able to enter one character before it won't let me enter anything else. To continue typing, I have to click out of the text box and back into it. Even then it will only let me type one character before I have to repeat the process.

  7. Acrobat Pro DC Bug - deleting a range of pages leaves last one undeleted

    I have a 40-page InDesign document with 2 sections and I'm using a different section prefix for both. I export the full document as PDF and clone it, then I just delete the 20 unwanted section/pages from each. However, upon deleting the continuous pages, for some reason it leaves the last page undeleted and gives an error saying "One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted". This has never happened before. Of course I have to click on the page's thumbnails to select them for deletion. It looks like a very annoying bug.

    I've uploaded the…

  10. Carry over bookmarks when extracting pages

    When we have huge PDFs, we sometimes need to split the documents in multiple PDFs.

    As splitting document with Adobe doesn’t work when you want to split based on specific page numbers, we intended to use extract pages. BUT with adobe, extracting pages does not carry over the bookmarks.

  12. Latest patch of Acrobat does not display selections from Pitstop Pro

    Update on Acrobat Pro, version 2021.007.20091 now does not display selections made by Pitstop Pro.
    No options on either software has changed, selections are still made and information about the selections shows on the Inspector window, full functionality of Pitstop Pro remains, however Acrobat will not visually display the highlighted items.

  13. Bug report: "Find" function fails intermittently on large documents

    The "Find" text function in the current version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC fails intermittently when searching for text strings in larger PDF documents. This issue occurs across multiple users on multiple devices, so is not isolated to any individual installation of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Illustration attached.

  14. File release when closing in ACROBAT

    I'm working everyday with thousands of PDF files for our repository www.ceeol.com. To maintain my overview in WINDOWS-Explorer, quite often I have to change the file names of the PDF-filess. For example, if I've downloaded 100 PDF-documents from a web page, which are a series of numbered documents, then I want to include the numbering in the file name. To do this, I have to open the files, read the number in the document, close the file again and then rename it accordingly.
    PROBLEM:
    Renaming is not possible because ADOBE-Acrobat does not release the file, even if I close…

  16. Redact > Find Text fails with many documents (e.g. 200) in the search folder

    This is my process under Windows 10, Acrobat acrobat DC 2015.00630527
    Open any file (a bit silly, but you need that to access the Search Text command dialogue box - without a document the 'Find text' from the Redact toolbar is not greyed out, but nothing happens when you select it. Which in itself is a kind of bug).
    Tools > Redact > From Redact toolbar select 'Find text'. A dialogue box opens. Select the folder with 200+ files. Enter the search string, make sure it is a search string that will find a hit in +200 files. Or maybe…

  17. Adobe Sensei for Acrobat

    Adobe Scan can automatically crop, resize, and reduce distortion on images, producing decent quality PDFs. To do this it uses Adobe Sensei, a form of AI. Given there is currently no way to automate these steps on Acrobat or Photoshop, and so no way to automate these steps on a desktop at all, please could you create a feature to achieve Adobe Scan level automation within Acrobat.

    It would be nice to be able to change the file name using without leaving the full screen mode in adobe. Also a "recent documents" dropdown module or menu near the top right that shows a list of the most recently accessed documents.

  19. Add background color to text boxes

    Add a color background to new text boxes ie. a white background so that text placed over other text or images effectively erases what the text box is placed over allowing new text to be seen clearly.

  20. Add robust spell checker

    Add spell checking capability for the entire content in a pdf -- your competition (BlueBeam) offers this functionality. Adobe is losing ground by not offering spell check only in forms and fields.

    Even if you just offer spelling markup (squiggly lines under unrecognized words) that would be helpful.
