  1. Original file name in PDF metadata

    What I’m looking for is a way to imbed the originating file name somewhere in the Meta data of the pdf for future reference. It would have nothing to do with the file name used for the PDF when exporting the original file. Use case: Often a client will rename a pdf and down the road I have to find the original Indesign file used to create that pdf.

  2. Export multiple pdfs as worksheets to a single excel workbook

    It would be great to be able to export multiple pdfs simultaneously that turn into a single excel workbook with each pdf as a different worksheet

    Hi,

    Thank you for reporting the issue. Is this issue happening only with one PayPal transaction file or with other files as well?
    Can you please provide us the details of the following:
    1. Acrobat Version – Are you on reader or DC? Please share the screenshot of the Acrobat version screen
    a. Go to help → About Acrobat … and take a screenshot
    2. Operating system (Mac/Win)
    3. Input PDF File
    4. Screenshot of the issue or any error you see while performing the Export operation.

    Regards,

  6. PDF to Word Conversion

    The pdf to word conversion is not much superior compared to other sites such as ilovepdf.com. There are various spelling errors in conversion from pdf to doc (Mac User). Please improve this aspect. The OCR is also poor (take a cue from apps such as pen to print).

  7. Export to excel typically does not work

    The step in the export process in which the tool presents the options related to locations for saving the exported file has a blank screen that never completes the process.

  8. Export pdf not working

    I am trialing Adobe Acrobat to see if it will do what I want. I've been scanning a printed text of my own authorship, then converting the pdf into Word so that I can edit it. OK to start with but now it says "Save As didn't wotk. File not saved'. How can I correct this? Prof. Brian Vickers

  9. Acrobat Pro DC doesn't show Save As options when saving

    The "Save As" option is not working, doesn't show the options and saving files is impossible.

  10. Excel Export select fixed length columns

    Export to Excel as a fixed width? Or even to text as fixed width. Will assist with merging columns during export.

  11. export to excel

    When exporting to excel, there is WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY TOO MUCH wrong formatting specifically with merging cells or entering an entire page from the pdf file into cells A1 - A5 that are merged and centered with text wrapped.

    Can the pdf exporter to excel actually work so if I have a pdf file with a report that is a table 10 columns by 20 rows actually go into excel the same way and not end up being 15 columns and 8 rows due to all the excel cells merging.

  12. Automation: Sort pdf on specific criteria and then export new, reduced information to new pdf

    Every week my team members print approximately a 280-page pdf of medical billing. Next, each member prints 280 pages and combs through the pdf for certain billing codes they have been assigned to enter. My hope is that with Acrobat DC there is an automated or even just a quick way to sort the 280-page pdf for specific criteria (number or word) and then export to a new, much smaller pdf that only contained the data members sort by.

  15. Export Spreadsheet to PDF issue

    Found a bug when converting a Spread sheet to PDF it has less room now and cuts off a whole addition row of the spreadsheet. I've been converting the same spreadsheet for 3 years and now it cuts off the last column. So, now there is less room you have to export from a spreadsheet.

  16. Acrobat tab in MS Word fails to complete PDF export in MAC

    I have a Mac and a PC, both with Acrobat DC Pro, both with MS Word 2016, both on same enterprise account. When I use the Acrobat tab to export a PDF from Word, it works on the PC and fails on the Mac. On the Mac, Acrobat DC Pro will start to launch, then it warns me I need to be connected to the internet and signed in (I am both). I have tried with and without Creative Cloud running and signed in.

  17. I have a defective PDF (downloaded).

    I got a garbage Word docx back from export (attached). When I paste a copied line into MS Word the font is 1 point. But it prints OK.
    Is there a way to detect the problem and repair it?

  18. Exporting Formular Data to CSV-File don´t work correctly

    We have to use the function for exporting PDF Formular Data to CSV-File. The function works well if you need it for only a few files but if you use it to export more than 500MB -750MB of files the export produces only an empty csv. That is quite a big problem for our company because we need this to export up to 3GB of PDF Formulars as part of our workflows and it is not very handy to export just parts and put them together in time consuming steps

    Adobe Acrobat Pro XML Export Bug Report
    by Rich Hartness, rhartness@mabnc.org

    1 Title: Isolated field format losses with Acrobat PDF to XML exports

    2 Intent

    I'm writing to report there seems to be a very small but significant bug in the Acrobat 2017 and Pro DC PDF to XML exporter, to share my compelling evidence, and hopefully to gain your support to authorize a code fix that will correct this issue in a future update.

    3 Problem description and scope

    The problem seems to only exist in XML exports. In…

  20. HTML5 Flipbook Export

    I would like to be able to Export PDFs as an HTML5 flipbook. Services around the web charge a ridiculous amount for this. Currently, this can be done as an SWF from Indesign, but not a lot of mobile devices can handle it. There has to be a better way. Even if you charged an extra $5 a month to host the files and then allowed someone to embed them (Life Flipsnack does) it would be worth it. They charge like $1000 a year.
