    • Inability to file pdf files in alphabetical order

      I have recently upgraded my Mac operating system to Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Since doing this, I am unable to use the Mac Finder in alphabetical order to drag and drop / file pdf's from Adobe Acrobat Pro onto my Mac flash storage (the folders are no longer in alphabetical order and are displayed in a random mixed order). The same applies when you print to pdf and then try and file on Finder.

      I would note that Finder itself accessed directly (i.e. not through Adobe) works as it is designed to and you can select any of…

        • white box around text - Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

          I've got some text layers 95% opacity with drop shadow applied on Illustrator. Those Ai files are linked into a Indesign doc, exported as PDF but when I view the artworks on Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (version attached) there is a white box around the text. This only happens on Adobe Acrobat. If I use Mac Preview it looks fine. I can only fix the issue if I make the text layer 100% opacity in Illustrator. This bug only happens when the doc is viewed on any zooms that are 100% or less. It looks fine on 125% or over…

            • Resize

              How the **** does your Adobe Acrobat Pro software simply not have a resize function you stupid ******* *****. Way to waste people's time with round about stupid methods just to standard page size. Whoever designed this or failed to implement this function should actually kill themselves.

                • Bug: Cannot convert PDF to Word when temp folder is Directory Junction in windows

                  Cannot convert PDF to word when temp folder is Directory Junction in Windows.

                  • Exporting files to Word automatically defaults to "Do not spell check" .

                    When exporting a PDF to Word, the files automatically default to Turn Spell Check off. This has caused numerous errors in my documents as spell check is an necessary function. This is under the Review tab, language Function in Word. I don't understand why Adobe would default to that. It did not used to do that. At the very least, you should offer the option to the individual doing to conversion to have the choice in their setup.

                          • Soft and hard hyphens in German text

                            German, as we know, is a language with some very long words. Therefore it is very common that words will be automatically split across lines, using what we used to call a "soft" hyphen. When exporting a PDF in German to a Word document, this "soft" hyphen is not distinguished from a "hard" hyphen (i.e. one which is produced by a key-stroke (as in the hyphen used just then).
                            I was asked yesterday to "Compare" a revised document in German (submitted as a pdf) with a former version in Word, and submit an estimate for updating the English translation. The…

                              This is about both editing and exporting PDFs.
                              The attached PDF has an explicit explanation of the issues + screenshots. Text from the attached file goes right here.

                              I’ve got Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2015 Release Version 2015.006.30355.

                              The PDF file seems to be a nicely composed PDF with Adobe InDesign CS5.5 (7.5.2).

                              • Incorrect conversion of Greek letters

                                Hi,
                                We use Adobe Reader Pro to convert PDFs to DOCX. However, there is a problem when we are trying to convert a PDF having some greek letters (please check the screen I have attached). For example, lowercase Greek Delta is being converted into uppercase Gamma. Is there any possibility to change this behaviour to the correct one?

                                Regards

                                • Vector Rasterise

                                  Rasterise all vectors option in the export PDF dialogue window.

                                  I use lots of detailed vector files in my layouts and when producing PDF's for approval this can be an issue as the files sizes can be too big to send back and forth over email. There are numerous work arounds but none really give a seamless document flow that should happen. Making a JPEG of my files and placing those instead of eps or ai files can be a headache also.

                                    • Slight problem converting from Adobe PDF to Microsoft Word (.docx)

                                      The type and spacing are out of sorts - especially if a graph happens to be in the paper. You have to essential hand type in the data to make sure all data it's aligned properly. Often font changes, as does spacing. This just requires extra attention, and editing. Apart from that - great program!

                                      • Snapshot of PDF page for export to JPG has bugs

                                        If you open those files in Acrobat, and use the snapshot feature, then "control-a" to select everything, you will see differences in each one. In each case, on the right side, the app selects more than it should be selecting. For example, the sample with inset and color has a small band of white on the right side that is included in the selection that should not be. This was a bug in Acrobat 9. I was hoping to find this problem fixed in this version, but it is not. I only discovered this recently, because I started adding background…

                                        • Latest updated version Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2017.012.20095 problem

                                          The latest version is taking too much time while saving the file. Sometime the latest version gets corrupted after saving. We fill that the older version was better.
