  1. Adding White Space via the Crop Tool Does Not Work for Some Pages

    Here is a posting I recently made to the Acrobat "Editing and Exporting PDFs" forum:

    try67 wrote: "Yes, Acrobat Pro DC can scale all the pages of the file in a single command."

    As it turns out, Acrobat Pro XI is supposed to be able to do this, but as I stated offline to try76, "... I experimented with increasing the white space around pages (to 8.5 x 11.0) in XI. The single-column test page I sent you is from a 9-page, mostly three-column document, and when I use the Cropping Tool while attempting to do this, there is one…

    Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded your request to the engineering team. They will reach out to you if any more information is needed.

  2. Can't save file

    When I review a downloaded file or make changes to a document and go to save the file I get a blank "Save as PDF" window that never completes loading. If I use [ctrl][s] to save the file I get a message that I don't have write privileges for the document. The program worked fine until yesterday.

  3. Constant blank screen when choosing to save documents

    Every time I edit a document and then choose to "save as" I just get a blank screen. I have to shut down my entire system and turn back on and it sometimes works, sometimes not!! This is clearly a bug in your system looking at the amount of times it has been reported.

  8. Keyboard shortcuts

    I would love to have a way to customize keyboard shortcuts, specifically for redaction tools - redacting full pages, redact page range, apply redactions would be great.

  9. Text Box Formatting Errors-Acrobat automatically changes/combines existing text boxes

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/combining-text-boxes-acrobat-pro-dc-2018-pc/m-p/11032569?page=1#M249220

    The link above is where this conversation is listed. You need to fix this. It makes everyone who uses your program angry and it messes up so many documents. It's ridiculous trying to do anything with it because it automatically chooses to move where the text boxes are when created in Acrobat. It's not acceptable to just say this is not an editing program. It doesn't matter. The product you provide does not fulfill the needs of your customers and it is causing MAJOR issues when trying to do just about anything related to text boxes.

  13. Text Recognition / Edit

    Older versions (prior to text recognition) allowed you to type onto a pdf and edit it later without any interference. The new DC software while still allowing you to type and edit more than often enough recognizes the original text of the document making it editable and causing tons of interference with the user entered text. There should be a feature which locks text recognition and doesnt allow the editing tool to recognize the base document script which will allow for easy editing if you have to save and come back to a document and make changes.

  14. Need More Editing Capabilities

    Please include two very important editing features in Acrobat Pro.

    Allow a "page setup" type feature, including:
    1.) the ability to change the margins of the entire document.
    2.) the ability to center text, such as a title, against the page margins, not just within the individual text box.
    3.) the ability to align all text in a document within the margins, without having to manually align each and every text box. This is important for documents that have many pages.

    Just like the editing features of Microsoft Word, these and other editing capabilities would make Adobe Pro an excellent…

  15. Changing layer default visibility state is awkward and sometimes does not save

    I use Acrobat PRO DC in prepress to switch layer visibility in PDF's that are linked to Illustrator imposition file. Usually I need to change 2-5 layer visibility. The process involves awkwardly too many steps to change a default visibility state of a layer in order for it to be saved. And when trying to save changes sometimes it fails. To correct the issue I usually have to rotate the page CCW and back CW and just then the layer visibility state can be saved. Please look at this as it consumes time and needs too many steps to complete…

  19. Acrobat DC reverts to old version of saved files.

    When I save over an old file (with the same name) and open it, it reverts to the previous saved version. Looks fine with all the changes done in the Preview, but the moment I open the file it is still the old version. Fine if we rename file or quite Acrobat and open fresh. So this looks like some sort of caching bug?

  20. Daily Crashing

    Running Acrobat DC and Mac 10.13.4. It's been crashing for years on various machines and Mac OSs. Seems to crash the most while opening multiple pdfs one after another while using the output preview window and the convert colors window. Hope you guys can fix this issue!
