  1. Keep added view columns in PDF Portfolio of emails converted to a PDF portfolio

    In Acrobat X one could add view columns, such as "to" and "folder" to a PDF Portfolio of emails, and save the portfolio to keep the added columns. When the portfolio was opened again the added view columns would still be there. Please add this feature to Acrobat Pro DC.

    • Saving a file created from an Illustrator file overwrites that file instead of opening a new save dialogue.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. open acrobat DC
      2. create a PDF from file.
      3. save file
      4. check the original file to see if it has retained it's format and is properly openable.

      Environment:
      OS: Windows 10
      CPU: Intel i5 6600k @4.3GHz
      RAM: 16gb(2x8gb) G-skill Trident-z @3000MHz
      Motherboard: Gigabyte G1 gaming 5

      Acrobat Version: 2015.023.20070

      Expected result:
      Doing this should bring up a new save dialogue, or the save-as dialogue technically. Then once it is saved it should switch to that file.

      Observed Result:
      Doing this overwrote the original file w/o providing a save dialogue.

      I have attached the ruined…

          When adding a PDF Portfolio to a file list (Combine Files) I get the following informational dialog box,

          "File [File name] is a PDF Portfolio that contains multiple files. The files with the PDF Portfolio have been added to the file list." It requires that you click OK, before the files will be added and you can continue.

          I wish to disable this dialog box as I am archiving thousands of files a day.

          • Support for opening and combining OpenOffice Documents, odt and the like.

            Simply format support for OpenOffice formats used by OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

            This is vital for those that prefer those formats over Microsoft Office formats. While they aren't as fully featured or useful in some cases they are free and open source making them a great alternative to the closed source formats of their Microsoft counterparts. Plus my book features some of these formats and i'm too lazy to convert them over...

                Hi

                Links won’t get preserved if you are using Print to PDF feature.
                Can you tell us which Acrobat version are you using and what error are you facing when you try to convert via the Acrobat ribbon?

                Thanks

                • I'd like to be able to make a flip book (that turns the page like a magazine)

                  Title says it really. It's simply that there a lot of 'make your own flip books' softwares out there, but they are not well designed and expensive, when this feels like it is a sensible add on to what one can already do with Adobe PDF pro. It's annoying to have to go elsewhere for pdf expertise, as I feel Adobe should be able to smash this themselves.

                  • Combining PDF documents results in unprintable characters

                    Problem: when combining multiple PDF files into one PDF, the result will be a variety of unprintable characters.
                    1) EACH individual PDF file appears fine (both on the screen and when printed). There are NO unprintable characters within the PDF.
                    2) CAN combine say 5 to 15 PDF files. All Fonts & characters appear fine (within the combined PDF). WILL also print OK. NO unprintable characters.
                    3) Now try to combine about 35-60 PDF files into ONE PDF file (NOT good). The COMBINED PDF will display on the SCREEN unprintable characters (€ = square box) on nearly every page!

                      Acrobat DC's, File>Create>Combine files into a single pdf, will stop working and I will have to quit and re-open Acrobat DC. It will work for a little while and then stop working. I will go to File>Create>Combine files into a single pdf within Acrobat DC, and when I choose two .pdf files to combine the preview will not show for the two files being combined, so I exit the window. Then try to go to File>Create>Combine files into a single pdf again and it plain just doesn't do anything, so it stopped working. A quit and re-open of Acrobat DC…

                      • Convert pdf files to iBook Author files for import into iBook author

                        I create PDFs using Pages app/program on my Mac. I often then publish them as ebooks via pdf's and then use those pdf's to print paperbacks. I'd like to take that PDF and import it easily into iBook Author. Maybe there is a way to create a plug-in or add functionality for this?

                            What is the default PDF viewer on your system?

                            When you combine PDFs containing signatures they are saved as a portfolio. When sending the PDF file it is not accessible within the email document itself nor directly from the downloaded tab. All you see is a giant "Get Adobe Reader " icon. It's confusing since I have Adobe Reader...apparently you have to go to your download folder, right click on PDF file and select "open with" Adobe Reader in order to access it. But then you can only view combined files individually and not as a whole. This doesn't work for our use as three or more people need…

                            • PATH AND FILE NAME INSERT OPTION

                              I would like to see a feature added to Acrobat that would allow Acrobat to stamp the path (location) and name of the document which was created. I am attaching an example of a document created with a different program in which the feature is highlighted..

                              It would also be great if that stamp would adjust and change as the document is renamed, moved or received and saved by the receiving party.

                                  Here is my issue, I used to be able to drag .png files into Adobe Acrobat and the software would brilliantly ask me if I wanted to combine these pngs into a single file, "Why yes, Thats exactly what I want! Thank you."

                                  This worked flawlessly for the last year. Now, out of nowhere, the program…

                                    • Bug: Have one standard icon for PDF bookmarks

                                      Have 1 icon for bookmarks wether it is created by adding a new bookmark or combining pdf files.
                                      If you need to add a new bookmark to a file you cannot get it to display the same icon as those created using combine pdf's. Unless they offer different functions there is nothing but confusion caused by having 2 different icons.

                                      • Allow right-click option to "Save here" or "Choose other location"

                                        Upon selecting a file or multiple files in a folder to convert to PDF, the right click menu should provide the option to either "Save here (or "save in same location" OR "Choose other file location".

                                        • Acrobat combine files + Batch compare pdf + Clarify array object error

                                          If you want supporting screen shots or more detail, please contact me.
                                          Jyotika at Acrobat Help <adchelp@adobe.com> has my eMail and tele#

                                          1. Combine files into a Binder always FORCES the default to be filename sequence.
                                          The User should NOT be forced to move HUNDREDS of files in a large document
                                          just to get them in the proper sequence.

                                          Yes, there is the "Move Up/Down" option which works on each file ONE AT A TIME.
                                          However, has anyone on the Acrobat team actually tried to do that to resequence
                                          over 1,000 pages into an absolutely different non-alpha result???…
