  1. Would like to export "Saved Settings" in Watermark & Header/Footer Tools to another computer

    I have a number of Watermark and Header/Footer "Saved Settings" on one Mac (desktop) that I would like to export from it and import into another Mac (laptop). These include page number specs for different page sizes. It would be a great time saver if, once those were saved in one computer, they could be exported into another without entering in the specs from scratch.

  2. Unknown location if available for the crop feature. To crop documents.

    Older versions I was able to quickly locate the tools to crop an image to make it smaller. I was also able to break down a document and extract one page if needed as a pdf file. Manipulate files is what this was useful for. No longer is this a user friendly program.

  5. Be able to add text without having entire document going through "edit."

    In older versions we could just add text to a document where needed. Now you have to go to Tools, Edit which then takes the time to recognizes all the text in a document. I frequently add text in all kinds of documents including charts and forms. When it goes to "recognize" the text on the full page, it distorts it to something unuseable. I end up having to open the document in Photoshop - if it will read it since usually it was scanned in first. If it won't, I have to do a screen shot, cut and paste…

  6. Acrobat Freezes when trying to edit text color in PDF Document

    I'm using the latest version of Acrobat on a MacPro. Text is recognized in the pdf document.
    I want to change the text color to black for better visibility. When starting in Acrobat, I can highlight text in the first text box and change to black.
    Then the program freezes. Using "Force Quit", of course, loses all changes.
    Help!
    I believe this function with acrobat could be quite valuable. MANY brochures have lighly colored text on a white background--not legible! This feature COULD be valuable own a continuing basis!
    Thanks!

  7. unwanted images

    I am adding a page to a multi page document. As a single page, the PDF looks clean. Opened in Illustrator, also clean, not remnants. When placed in the multi-page document, it shows additional, unwanted images. I've attached the original and a scan of the document with the errors.
    I have even created a JPG out of the file and placed it, same errors arise. Is there some setting that I am missing? It is a 43 page document and there are no other issues. I'm using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC on a Dell Latitude E6440 running Windows 7.

  8. need options when editing

    When I edit a document, I do not necessarily want to edit existing text. I do not want Acrobat to do an OCR process on the document and create uncountable text boxes (that can easily be messed up), when all I wanted to do was either crop the image or add a text box. Please allow the OCR conversion to be toggled off.
    Also when scanning, if you go into an option like increase resolution, all of the changes (like selection of document size) made on the previous screen are lost and have to be entered again Too time consuming!

  9. Set default color for adding text

    Make it possible to set a default color in the menu:

    Hello,

    I think you are searching for the AddText functionality.
    You can find it at :
    Open EditApp → You will find AddText option in top toolbar.

    Please let us know if it serves your purpose.

  17. Font preview, or "one step backwards"

    in Pro XI, when using the Drop List of fonts in "add text", the fonts actually DISPLAYED in the stated font. This was incredibly helpful for those of us who have to be creative with our text additions. For some reason, somewhere along the line between Pro XI and 2017 (which I just purchased and installed) someone in their infinite wisdom decided to delete that feature. please, Please, PLEASE put it back, and sooner rather than later. NOT having it is a major headache.

  18. Bug - right click error bookmark properties if different types of bookmarks are selected

    I first generated my pdf with automated bookmarks.
    I then added a few pages and gave them bookmarks manually.

    When I try to edit these different bookmarks at the same time by selecting them both and right clicking to get the properties window, the program pops up the error message "Adobe has stopped working."

    The only way to edit these different bookmarks is by not selecting the different types at the same time.

    OS: Windows 8.1 Enterprise

    Expected result: I would like the properties window to open when different bookmark types are selected.

    Observed result: The program throws an error…

  19. 'Unable to process the page because the Paper Capture recognition service experienced an error

    This has been reported on another thread and marked as solved - it isn't. I have just purchased a copy of Acrobat Pro and am unable to edit .pdf's, which is precisiely why I bought it. The subscription simply isn't worth the money without this capability.

    I have noticed some suggested solutions but these are highly technical and not something I would have access to do at work.

    Could a solution be suggested - fast - as it seems as though this is quite a common error?

  20. 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…
