    • Print to PDF from IT2 changing text into Hexidecimal /random alphanumeric

      was trying to create a pdf from software ( IT2 ) but when i print to Adobe PDF it converts the text / numbers into what looks like Hexidecimal or ASCII.

      work around is to use snag it first then print to adobe pdf.

          • Logical presentation of figures

            Hello

            When generating separate PDF files from a PDF with multiple pages (in my case a 240-page catalog), a number (or folio) is assigned to each page as .... x for units, ..XX for tens, .*** for hundreds, etc.
            Which gives: 1, 10, 100, etc.

            Is it possible for Acrobat to name pages rather like this: 000X, 00XX, 0XXX?
            Which would give: 0001, 0010, 0100, etc.

            List files for a Windows user do not appear in logical order and the user is forced to rename the PDFs by adding zeros in front of the units and tens (a time-consuming job).

            • pdfmaker does not render

              Following a recent upgrade to DC from XI, I have an issue with images in .docx files not being rendered by PDFMaker.

              Attached is a sample source file together with output from the Adobe PDF driver and from PDFMaker.

              The issue may be triggered by the insertion format of the image: the workaround is copy it out to an image editor then paste back as DIB.

              Note that this is definitely a regression from the XI PDFMaker which performed fine on the same files only a couple of months ago.

              PS Why on earth does PDFMaker not use the same…

              • INDD Hyperlinks corrupted by Acrobat DC

                REALLY BAD BUG: when exporting InDesign files with File hyperlinks, Acrobat DC destroys link by adding an extra 'File:' at link beginning, plus add'l %20 scattered throughout address, so that the link will only work if it is edited in DC. What a waste of time!

                • thumbnail view and new file same window

                  I spend all day compiling pdfs from multiple files and these 2 features are driving me crazy! In the newest Acrobat Pro DC version everytime I access the thumbnails panel it goes back to a long strip of pages stacked one above the other, I generally prefer to have 2 or 3 pages in a row and it never remembers this and always defaults back to 1. The other thing I hate is opening all new files in the same window - I regularly grab a page(s) from one pdf and drag into the other pdf and now I have…

                  • Adobe spark page to pdf

                    Adobe Acrobat does not load Adobe Spark links and therefore cannot convert the pages into a pdf. This needs to happen.

                    • Choose pages option in Combine

                      As with Acrobat 9 Pro, your new DC versions needs a "choose pages or select pages" option when combining multiple documents into one pdf. The old version easily allowed you to select the individual document, and enter that you wanted to include only pages 1-22, 56-68, 543. Only these pages would be included. With DC I was just told by your customer support team that I would need to expand the document, and scroll through what could be a 1,000 page document and hand select the pages I need. Will not purchase program if this is the only way to…

                        • Combining Separate PDFs in Order of Selection.

                          How would you like the feature to work? When selecting multiple pdf's to combine I'd like adobe to arrange them in order of selection (Based on which item was selected first). Nitro PDF does that.

                          Why is this feature important to you? It saves time when you extract pages from emails and you select each in an order you want them to be combined. Otherwise you end up dragging each selection to arrange while creating the binder.

                          • How to show CSS gradient background from HTML to PDF using Acrobat?

                            We want to create a PDF file from local HTML files.

                            It can show gradient background if we save PDF by using printing function in browser.

                            However, It doesn't works when created in Acrobat.

                            We don't want to use printing function to create all PDF files, due to there are many pages waited to be converted.

                            The gradient background are written in CSS.

                            Could we have a solution?

                            Tks.

                                • Combine two small pages and create one single page

                                  When I scan two pages and crop them, they are smaller or equal to an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. I want to be able to take the two pages and make them just one single page. There are many times that I have scanned something that had just a couple lines at the top of the second page. I may want to be able to shrink that to fit it all on one page. I think there should be options for doing that. Since people are trying to be more and more digital to store information and use…

                                  • BUG: Opposite symbol on creating the PDF

                                    Creating a PDF using the PDF-Maker (ACROBAT Pro 2017 WORD Addon) of a DOCX-file (WORD 1016)
                                    the <greater or equal sign> is changed to the opposite symbol
                                    the <smaller or equal sign>.
                                    Both files attached for reproduction

                                        Hi

                                        Is the issue still persisting?
                                        If yes, can you share the new crash logs and the steps how you are creating PDFs?
                                        Does that happen with every file?

                                        Thanks
                                        Tanvi

                                      • Combine Odd Page File with Even Page File

                                        Many scanners are not duplex. Thus, users scan odd pages (1, 3, 5, etc.) first then save the file. Next, users turn the stack over to scan even pages (n, n-2, n-4, etc.) then save the file. The problem comes when trying to combine in sequential order. Please create a tool that simply selects odd page file, then reverse even page file, then combines in proper order.
