  2. Acrobat blocks editing due to secured document, but no security policies are on document

    When I attempt to edit the document, I receive the following message:
    "This is a secured document. Editing is not permitted."
    When I look at the document's security settings, they are all disabled.

    Tests I have tried:
    - Downloading and testing the same document on another device - could not replicate
    - Downloading and testing a different PDF on this device - could not replicate
    - Re-installing Acrobat on the affected device - no change
    Please see attached the document.

  4. Create tickmarks tool box for quick access through keypad

    In other PDF editor programs, there is the ability to customize tickmarks in a toolbox that can then be assigned to a keypad number to be accessed quickly and repeatedly. Creating this functionality would greatly increase the speed in which user can apply those tickmarks in reviewing a document, generating significant efficiency when a large volume of documents require this type of review.

  6. Problem with extracting pages - images are not removed from the target file

    There is a problem with extracting single pages from particular PDF documments. Attaching the test.pdf file.

    Extracting a single page from it (view->tools->Organize Pages->Open and you can do a drag & drop page to windows explorer) we are getting a pdf file with same file size as original but with only one page.
    It seems that its not removing all jpegs from the file.
    Attaching also sample file with extracted one page.

    Files are generated by FPDF library and got a replay on their forum: "That's probably because FPDF uses the same Resources dictionary (containing all images) for all pages"

  7. Copying Page Sets

    Sometimes I receive a file with a single set of different pages(Let's say 5 pages). My customer wants 31 sets. I'd like to select the five, highlight and right click and chose "Copy as set?", then once I do this, a dialog box comes up and asks, "How many would you like?" I would chose 31 and it would duplicate 31 sets. It would change the page count from 5 pages to 155 pages. Thank you!

  8. When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the layer background transparent

    When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the layer background transparent - this would allow a 'base' CMY' PDF to have multiple K (version) layers added - this would allow both registration and versioning to be verified

  9. When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the background transparent

    When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the background (of the added layer) transparent - this would allow a base CMY to show through multiple K layers (showing different plate change versions) allowing registration to be verified

  10. Not possible to edit text after saving files with active windows in PDF.

    Not possible to edit text after saving files with active windows in PDF. For example when there is active window where we should write date and then we are adding signature, then field with date is not active anymore and it is not possible to change date with EDIT function either. It is very flustrating!

  15. DPI drop down

    When converting a PDF it would be nice if 400dpi was an available dpi in the drop down for resolution. We need to convert PDF's to Tiff at 400dpi a lot and we have to manually type it in each time. We are doing this 800+ times per week.

  16. Auto Update Portfolio PDFs with most current versions

    When you create a PDF Portfolio, you're basically bringing in multiple files into one location, correct?

    It would be great if the portfolio automatically updated when one of its' linked files was updated.

    For instance, let's say I made a Portfolio of 12 different PDFs. I make an edit to one of those individual PDFs. The next time I open the portfolio, Acrobat automatically updates the portfolio with the updated PDF.

    Short of that, it would be nice to be alerted that one of the PDFs (or whichever file types are used) has been updated and you can click to…

  17. Allow the 'Select all' tool to select all the content of all pages at once

    I've never used a program that can edit documents that doesn't let the user select all content of all pages in the document at once, yet that is how Adobe Acrobat works. it seems impossible to select all the content of a PDF to do something as simple as say change the font size/color etc.

    Please please add this as an additional option, either by making a second repeat of the command select across all pages or making the command work with a different key combination.

    I still can't quite believe I'm writing this request... surely I have it wrong…

  19. When attempting edit PDF's, annoying messaging of "optimization" creates Jumbles. Should be a choice. IT messes up all other text

    Our team edit's pdfs for QAQC and whenever we save it jumbles and distorts the document. Really quick messages come up that we can't stop "optimization/fixing to web " etc.ANNOYING

  20. Edit PDF: Please allow us to format underline and bold color and type

    Please allow us to select different types of underline (dotted, dashed, double) and to select underline and bold colors. Comparable to Word so I don't have to waste time on page replacements when only 1 word needs editing!
