  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  6. Give the ability to set defaults in the Split function of Adobe DC. I always split by "Top Level Bookmarks" and Output using the Bookmark names for file names. Since I (and my team) do this for multiple files every day, having to reset those parameters every time you want to split a file is really unhelpful and a waste of time. Given that Adobe is a massive time saver, this would help even more.
    I get that is how I do it, but not how everyone does it, so the ability to update just my defaults would be helpful.

  7. When "Reduce Multiple Files" is selected to optimize an entire folder of PDF files, there needs to be a question added to the questions/answers path that asks you to select from the list of saved optimization settings.

    Right now, it ALWAYS uses the Standard settings, and the resulting graphics quality for screen shots and similar images is not very good. I have created a custom setting for the PDF Optimizer that gives the results I want, but there is no way currently to apply it across a folder of PDF files.

    This should be an easy fix -- please implement…

  9. Can we please get a feature in the Print Production --> Convert Colors section, that allows us to copy and paste a set of page numbers to convert from CMYK to grayscale? The only three options it gives me are "All", "Current Page", and "From X to X".

    I have a bunch of pages I need to convert from CMYK to grayscale, but doing it page by page, range by range, is extremely tedious and time cosuming. Take my current project for example. I need to convert these pages:

    1-5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35,37,39,41,43,45,47,49,51,53,55,57,59,61-63,65,67,69,71,72,76

    Is there no way I can just copy and paste…

  10. Would be possible to include a REPLACE ALL function instead of only replace ? Microsoft word has it since 80's. Please its simple and its hurting my **** finger to click a thousand times replace to replace sentences in a long PDF document. Thanks

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. We used to be able to actually ADD text to our pdf's, I am not seeing where or what I need to click on to be able to do this as easy as with the previous Adobe Pro XI version our company had.

  14. 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…

  16. Organize Pages, Extract, currently: no ability to type in desired multiple page range.
    Currently you have to select the Picture Pages to get a Range selected.
    Why can't you all make it available to type in our Multiple Page Range, too, in the Page # box?
    This was a feature for a long time on the older version. It was much quicker & less errors to be able to type in my Page Range to Extract.
    Thank you.

  17. When I want to edit an object in an external editor, the tool ”Edit using…” only shows ”Open with…”.
    Illustrator/Photoshop is not shown in the list as it used to. It makes no difference if I set them (or any other compatible app) as default editors in preferences.

  18. Add a feature to the Add Text function in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC so that a user can choose Opaque for a text box and avoid a Background image being visible through the text box. Also, the user should be able to choose a solid color to appear behind the text in the text box. This feature is so basic that it should have been in the product from the start. Photoshop Elements has had it for a long time!

  19. Once the user sets the scale (also, look at having a "set custom drawing scale by measuring bar scale" option like Bluebeam), allow the user to customize the parameters of lines and shapes to create lines that are a certain length or rectangles and circles that are a certain size.

  20. The snapshot tool is already there, allow the user to past that snapshot within the same PDF. For users working with drawings it is helpful to be able to take a snapshot of a layout and move it to a different area. I worked around this by saving the snapshot as a JPEG and adding an image to the file, which is OK but the image may not come in at the correct scale which leads to errors.
