  1. PDF to Excel Conversion

    I need to convert some bank statements into excel. However, the conversion is highly distorted, across various cells, and almost unusable. Sharing the attached sample.

    Do you have a solution that you can share.

    I have tried, online links and conversion of these files work fine there, But because of security issues, I need a trusted software and hence trying to use Adobe.

  2. Adobe Acrobat DC enoding

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am French fund of literature and work for editors in particular in view of publications of translations from Indian literature into French.

    I am thus using most programs of the Adobe Creative Suite, because I also manage a Web site devoted to the promotion of Indian literature to French-speaking people (www.chatranjali.fr).

    The purpose of my request is the following:
    I gather PDF documents from either Indian sites, or Indian writers or their agents. They are thus written in one of the numerous languages and scripts used in the Indian subcontinent: devanagari mainly, but…

  3. Export to Excel

    I tried to export a PDF to Excel in order to capture and manipulate the data without having to retype it. When I did so, the resulting Excel document was unreadable and the formatting was off. I have several files like this that I need to extract the data from. I have Acrobat Pro for Mac. I'm using osSierra version 10.12.6. Please see the attached PDF and resulting Excel output file.

    Hi Chantal Smith,

    The attached PDF is already an OCRed file whose output is incorrect. Try to copy and paste the text from the PDF file. It contains garbage values.

    Please provide non-OCRed file for this issue.

    Regards,
    Akanksha Garg

  5. files exported to excel showing up weird

    When exporting a file to excel, the data is not only merging cells, but the data is coming over looking like jibber jabber (sorry, I don't know how else to put it). You can't see most of the data unless you click on a cell.

  6. An export to MS Onenote option would be great.

    As well as being able to export a PDF to MS Word, the option to export to MS OneNote would be very beneficial. I know it can be done via the print menu but it's not the same and just exports as images not editable files / text.

  7. Make a full automated converter

    Comparing with other available toolkits, Adobe gives the best output in document conversion. Unfortunately, the team decided -for some reasons - to limit the automation capabilities of the software. A piece of advice from a machine learning/Natural Language Processing/Data science perspectives: you can do a lots more if you open on Big Data community. Companies have dumps of millions of PDF and receive a thousand of PDF each day. Unfortunately, they can do nothing with it because open source softwares are terrible ...... Big noisy Data isn't that useful in data science. An automated - highly parallelized - web service…

  9. PDFs exported from Indesign cc 2019 Links don't work for all users

    I recently had an issue wherein some of my clients found that hyperlinks in the PDFs which I had sent them did not work. Two clients were on a Mac, opening the doc in Reader, another on a PC. I sent the PDFs to numerous different people and some could access links, others could not. The pdf was created using Indd cc 2018 and later also 2019. This was "solved" by a Tech Support Rep who advised me that Adobe doesn't guarantee usability of links in PDFs if they have been uploaded to a server other than the Adobe Cloud.…

  11. Enable ability to extract PDF form fields into 1 record per form

    Ability to extract completed PDF forms such that the data is extracted into 1 record perform. The record has the data from each of the form fields on the form. The fields are labeled, so it would be helpful (using EXCEL as an example to export the data as follows in the attachment. Essentially row1 is the list of fields. Row 2 is the data from those fields. I show a 3rd row from a 2nd form in case it would be possible to process multiple forms at the same time. If not, one at a time would work.

    If…

  12. have to manually enter page number for export to eps

    When exporting to eps (may be other formats too) from a multi-page document, you have to manually go into settings and define the page number (in the format of a range) that you want to export. Ironically, it automatically populates the page # of # based on the page you're already on. If you don't define a page, regardless of what page you're on, it will export the 1st page. Should default to exporting the page you're on in the pdf.

  14. avoid url encode

    I don't want the links to be encoded (because always end up in broken links), I want it to be exactly as I have it on my source program, therefore if I have # ~ or other KEEP IT! (I don't need a %23) and viceversa IF I have an URL with http%3A%2F%2F KEEP IT!!! I don't need http://) This is causing me a lot of issues because all those "smart" and "magic" conversion ends up in broken links.... Therefore I have to manually update after the PDF is exported from word, powerpoint.

    Is there a way to tell…

  19. When exporting to excel it is auto merging cells now.

    Each time I export to excel the format is not like the previous versions. There is far more work to format the document. Cells will auto merge or additional columns will be added. Past versions have allowed me to export the exact document with no format issues.

  20. Need to Export files to Mac PAGES, not MS Word. Why isn't this already available?

    As a Mac user since the early 80's I use the Mac Suite of PAGES, NUMBERS, etc. No MS WORD or any other MS product will ever be on my machine! If this is supposed to be a Mac compatible application it should be able to export my edited pdf documents into PAGES.
