  1. Request to Add Autoplayable Animated GIFs to PDFs

    PDFs are traditionally considered static documents that offer consistency between printed and on-screen outputs. However, this creates an inherent limitation in the utility of portable documents. Consider the old static landing pages of Web 1.0; minimal interactivity and stylization eventually gave way to dynamic webpages in Web 2.0. Much in the same way, “Dynamic PDFs” have the potential to help document creators grow and communicate their thoughts more efficiently. Two specific use cases are outlined below:

    a) In Book Publishing

    A writer would like to convert their Word document into a digital book with dynamic art; thanks to Adobe, this…

  2. Office Integration Broken after Applying Update

    Yesterday I applied updates to both Acrobat Pro DC and Office on macOS 11.6.2, so I'm not sure whether is regression was caused by Office or Acrobat.

    Office was updated to version 16.58 (22011201)
    Acrobat was updated to version 2021.011.20039

    Now:

    1. When I launch PowerPoint, I get an error (see attached image): PowerPoint couldn't load the add-in /Users/admin/Library/Group Containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/User Content.localized/Startup.localized/PowerPoint/SaveAsAdobePDF.ppam

    Indeed: the SaveAsAdobePDF.ppam file no longer exists.

    1. Word no longer contains the Acrobat add-in in the ribbon. If I open User Content.localized/Startup.localized/Word/linkCreation.dotm and enable macros when prompted, the Acrobat add-in loads into that document, but that's it. It does not…

  4. Adding audio file to PDF with Adobe Pro DC (Mac OS Catalina version 10.15.1)

    Hello, I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC on a recent iMac running OS Catalina version 10.15.1. I'd like to embed a simple and short Audio file. I have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat PRO DC from the cloud. I tried recording a note, that did not work out all. Then I recorded an audio file in Garageband and saved it as an .aif file (I saved it as an .aif file because none of the other formats would load up) and this prerecorded .aif file uploaded from my hard disc into my cursor successfully (I can actually play…

  5. IDEA - Insert All Links On Page

    This is a variation on an existing function in Adobe Acrobat Pro that appears in Tools - Document Processing - Web capture - Append All Links on Page. This function seeks out a linked file or webpage, converts it to PDF, and then appends it to the end of the host PDF file and then internally links/bookmarks the link to that page.

    Instead of appending the links to the PDF file at the end and creating an internal bookmark link to the page, this feature would do the same thing but instead attach the file or webpage in the link…

  6. Cannot Combine Adobe PDFs through Context Menu

    Cannot Combine Adobe PDFs through Context Menu

    I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and when trying to use the right-click context menu to Combine Adobe PDFs into a single file, Adobe Acrobat DC opens up, but nothing happens for 1-2 minutes. This will happen whether I select one file, multiple files, a small file (100KB<) or a larger file (>2MB). I need to combine PDFs as part of my daily duties, and waiting literally hours every day to combine my PDFs is horribly inefficient.

    Versions: Adobe Acrobat DC Version: 21.007.20099, running Windows 10 Pro Enterprise (GC) 1803.

    One would expect…

  7. Adobe PDF Writer randomly leaves out things

    When creating a document by clicking save as Adobe PDF in word, I am finding that it will randomly leave out sentences in the final product. It is very prevalent after photos and section headings. See the examples attached.

  8. Append to PDF

    Append to existing PDF feature for the Adobe PDF Printer like PrimoPDF.

    I print multiple sheets out of Excel to send for signatures but not all sheets and to append them together would be ideal. So, for now, I print the PDF in PrimoPDF because it has this feature, then send the PDF package via Adobe Sign.

  9. Easy way to convert a Word document with EMBEDDED Fonts

    Create a simple way to convert a Word document to a pdf WITH embedded fonts for publishing. It is much too difficult and time consuming hunting down the process in the program. I thought the program had all of these features easily accessible to a user.

  10. Create PDF from Word without saving.

    I use a Word document with blank fields i manually fill to create PDF letters. Now it seems I have to save the Word file in the process of creating a PDF. I need to be able to close the Word file without saving it so the fields remain blank for the next use. Why can I no longer simply <Print> the filled form letter to PDF without overwriting my original Word file?

  13. Need a tool to translate web pages in languages other than English.

  14. BUG: Acrobat PDFMaker - Microsoft Word - Bookmarks

    With WORD (2016) and PDFMaker:

    When creating PDF maker and asking it to convert the Document's Headings / Styles to Bookmarks; It does not include some characters in the bookmarks.

    Characters such as Non-Breaking Hyphen. There may be others also.

    [ Special characters are inserted into work using INSERT > SYMBOL > MORE SYMBOLS > SPECIAL CHARACTERS ]

    Also the Case of text characters is taken from STYLE information, rather than from TYPED characters (I.e. from the FORMATTING, rather than the DATA). If for example the style specified all text in UPPERCASE. Then the bookmarks will be also in UPPERCASE..…

  15. BUG : White outline around images with transparency

    With an Image with Transparency: .PNG File. Placed against a dark background (paper colour) to show the white outline that occurs around the image.

    Occurs in .PDF files when No image resolution downsampling is set, and image types are stored in NON-lossy image formats, e.g. NONE, ZIP, JPEG 2000 (LossLESS)

    It occurs at all zoom levels. But disappears when zoomed in to the maximum zoom level.

    When the resultant PDF File is later, either DownSampled or LOSSY Image comprressed (Using PDF Optimiser), the white Outlines become part of the Image and are much more…

  16. BUG : Acrobat / AcrobatPDF Maker - Word - Gradient (Circular) - Pattern & Representation

    When using Microsoft Word & PDFMaker:

    Circular gradients do not have the expected gradient pattern. They have a STAR shaped gradient pattern.

    This star shaped gradient pattern is more apparent as the shape that has a gradient fill becomes SMALLER.

    Also, Acrobat stores these shapes and fills as a Bitmap image representation, so they are not Vector objects as expected, so they do not regenerate with scaleing.
    Other PDF software, e.g. FoxIt PDF Editor, does not have this gradient pattern problem. Also it stores the shapes and gradients correctly as a Vector object.

    [Note: Other unexpected patterns, may occur with…

  18. Ability to Save As PDF from within Acrobat Pro

    Acrobat Pro Feature Request

    I have a document that is approximately 6x3". I need to output this document to two different PDF deliverable files:

    1) at the 6"x3" size, for use on a tiny screen

    and

    2) on 8.5"x11" size with 3 tiny pages per sheet, for efficient printout on standard paper or viewing in PDF

    I save my source content to the 6"x3" size and get a beautiful PDF file. Deliverable 1 looks great.

    But, I cannot save my source content to PDF with multiple pages per sheet (from Word).

    Also, from Acrobat, I cannot save the output 1…

  20. Create PDF from multiple PDF files

    When I create a binder Pdf from different pdf files, I cannot save the binder. It remains just stuck on the save window and nothing happens. How can this be solved? There are sites which only allow uploading of a single file, thus you need to be able to combine more files into one. Thanks for your prompt support.
