  2. Let sound files on PDFs open in Email attachments as they used to.

    I am a musician and have been using Adobe Pro to send PDF flyers with a sound bite attached to the PDF that played when the email attachment was opened. This gave an immediate result. I am amazed to find that due to an upgrade Adobe Pro will no longer do this, instead if you send a flyer to a potential venue they have to open the email attachment, save it to a file, close it, open it again, trust it, close it and open it another time before the sound can be heard. New venues are not going to…

  3. Create PDF extension

    Adobe Create PDF extension is no longer available for Firefox because Firefox has stopped supporting NAPI. I would like Adobe to develop a replacement for the Create PDF extension. It did a much better job of creating a PDF from a web page than Print to Adobe does. It also allowed the output to be added to an existing PDF file. This was very useful when you had several web pages that were essentially part of one subject or transaction. It allowed you skip saving the pages as individual files and then combining them as a separate step. Please bring…

  4. 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.

  5. Text menus- not hieroglyphics please.

    Text menus should be an option in preferences. Your non-standard hieroglyphics just aren't working for me and I've been using this version for about a year- if I could go back to version nine I would in a heartbeat. You still have the File, Edit, View, Window, Help text menus (don't you dare!). Why not have the other important functions in another text row underneath?

  6. PDF Plug-in slow down MS 360 Excel when creating pdf files

    I am using the 64bit version of MS Office 365; and I having problem when converting Excel spreadsheet to PDF files, using the Adobe Create Plug-ins from Adobe DC Pro 32bit. The plug-in slow down the process in Excel at first time. When used a second time, the entire process runs faster than first time. This repeat everyday, when converting an Excel to Adobe PDF.

  7. Combine Excel-Files in Acrobat - Unable to open Document, Permission Problem

    My software environment:
    Windows 10 Pro 1909, Build 18363.900 (64 bit)
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Continuous Release 2020.009.20067
    Microsoft Excel 2019 MSO (16.0.12827.20200) 32 bit

    My Problem with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC:
    Since years I combine MS-Excel-files in one PDF via right mouse-click and drop-down menu "Combine files in Acrobat ..." in Windows-Explorer.

    Unfortunately, this procedure results nowadays in an error message: "Unable to open document" and a reading permission problem (see attached Screenshot).

    There are no reading permission restrictions and I think it is a bug in this Acrobat-Release since it was in the past not an issue.

    I…

  8. Retaining Hyperlinks and Fonts when converting MS Word document to PDF

    Software Used:
    OS: macOS Catalina Version 10.15.2
    MS Word for Mac: Version 16.32
    Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017: Version 2017.011.30166

    Issue:

    When converting a word document with hyperlinked text, a problem emerges. When using the "print to PDF" option in MS Word, the resulting PDF does not retain the hyperlinks contained in the original document. When using the "Save As PDF" function, there is a dual issue. If the "Best for printing" option is used, the resulting PDF does not retain the hyperlinks from the original document. If the "Best for electronic distribution and accessibility" option is used, the resulting PDF…

  10. Adobe Chrome Extension first run page launch

    Remove the auto page launch after the installation / activation / updating of the Adobe Acrobat Chrome Extension. Or provide a group policy to disable it.
    The problem is on Citrix or none persistent VDIs were the users get always a fresh user profile. Users see then on first browser launch the Adobe page instead of our company Portal.
    The old Adobe Reader extension had this feature but not the new one.

  13. combine files thumbnails not in proportion

    I've just noticed that in the Combine Files panel, the thumbnails of the files I pull in are squished out of proportion. The thumbnails of the finished file (after I click "Combine") are just fine though - no issues with those. But the squished thumbs are very strange.

  14. Getting jibberish when converting a web page to PDF

    When converting a web page in Edge (usually an invoice from an on-line purchase to PDF), portions of the text are converted to total jibberish. Converting the same page using the built-in Microsoft PDF converter works correctly.

  15. Create an easy way to make a Photo Contact Sheet

    It would be great to have an easy way to dump a file of multiple photos into Acrobat and create a PDF photo contact sheet. And be able to select how many photos on each page 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 etc per page

  16. Fix DWG to PDF batch conversion

    I am an electrical drafter and need to combine sometimes hundreds of AutoCAD (dwg) files into a pdf. The Acrobat XI version did this reliably and quickly. I used it for about 4 years mostly for that purpose. Now that it is no longer supported by Adobe I apparently am forced to "downgrade" to Acrobat 2017 for a perpetual license. (Somehow my "so-called perpetual" version of Acrobat XI suddenly stopped working on my work computers - more than one - suddenly - for some reason) 8( So...What is the definition of "perpetual" anyway?
    I bought the 2017 version and it…

  17. make Acrobat Pro compatible with IBM Notes version 10

    Adobe Acrobat has been compatible with the major business application like MS Outlook or Lotus/IBM Notes since a long time.

    With the version 10 of IBM Notes (that was October 2018) Adobe Acrobat 2017 is no longer compatible with this email suite.

    The PDFMaker Addin did a great job in creating PDFs from Mail.
    Unlike just "printing to PDF" the right border has not been cut when the text was too long and the PDFMaker did include all attachments from the mail into the final PDF.

    So the Adobe Acrobat was a perfect companion for documenting approvals and other buisiness…

  18. When you convert a Microsoft

    There is a glitch with Adobe PDF. When you covert a Microsoft Word document to an Adobe PDF, some pilcrows (¶) are changed while some are not in the same document. Some pilcrows have a curved bottom. Additionally, all superscript characters become subscript. So all in-text citations with a superscript number and all superscript th and nd, etc., such as in 4th, 2nd, etc., become subscript. It also depends on how you open the file. On Adobe Cloud, the pilcrow problem doesn't happen, but the other one does. On Instructure Canvas opening my PDF files, both problems are present.

  19. Set a default order for when combining files

    Rather than re-ordering and re-arranging pdfs within a combined file, I would like to be able to determine the order files are compiled. This can be by file title (alphabetically) or others. Right now when I combine several files into one pdf, they are scrambled out of order and I have to rearrange manually which can be cumbersome for larger compilations.

  20. Preserve Source Folder Structure when creating multiple PDF's

    When creating multiple PDF's, if I choose to place them in the source folder, everything works fine, and all files are being converted into PDF, remaining the source structure. But I end up with a folder structure with mixed files (Word and PDF) next to each other. I do want a different output folder, but preserving my source folder structure. This way I get a new output structure, with only PDF-files in the structure. This option is currently not possible. When selecting a different output folder, all files are created directly into that new main folder. I would like to…
