  4. How to remove the black village from scanners

    If you are scanning a document, with many pages, you do not lower the scanner lid (to speed up scanning), but this causes a black stripe to form at the edges of the text. Now you can select the text and images excluding the black border; If you want to obtain a document with the same format, for example an A5 (without black borders) this is not possible with this program, because if you report it in A5 format, the black border is revised. It should be easy to delete the outside of the selection. Sincerely

  5. Allow bulk actions using csv files.

    Allow users to extract pages and give them names based on a csv file.
    Also allow these files to be protected with a password from a csv file.

  6. PDF Tables are not tagged correctly: #3 Header IDs and cell associations

    The 3rd of several problems in how PDF Maker (and InDesign's export to PDF utility) tag PDFs.

    In complex tables (that is, a table with multi-row column headers, multi-column row headers, merged cells, or sub-headers in the middle of the table)...

    1. Each <TH> must have a unique header ID, and

    2. Each data cell <TD> must be associated with one or more header IDs.

    This is required per the PDF/UA-1 accessibility guidelines, and is outlined in the Tagged PDF Syntax Guide, Sec. 5.4.1 (the Syntax Guide is available for free from https://www.pdfa.org/resource/tagged-pdf-best-practice-guide-syntax)

    At this time, we can autogenerate the Header…

  7. PDF Tables are not tagged correctly: #1 Table Editor

    1 of several problems in how PDF Maker (and InDesign's export to PDF utility) tag PDFs.

    In Table Editor, the editor's cell markers (bright pink lines) do not align with the actual <TD> data cells. This makes it difficult, and sometimes impossible, to correct a cell's tag.

    Most commonly seen in complex tables with merged cells in the column and row headers. See screen capture.

    Also see this blog post:
    https://www.pubcom.com/blog/2020_04-05/ACROBAT_tableeditor.shtml

    EXPECTED RESULT:
    Table Editor's cell outlines should match the actual cells.

  8. Save as Adobe PDF on Mac Acrobat, please!

    I need the "Save as Adobe PDF" feature on Mac Acrobat! Without this print to save feature, it is very inconvenient to work on Mac Acrobat.

  9. Error using Create PDF tool - Acrobat 2017 with Office 2013

    Using Abobe Acrobat Standard 2017 - Version 2017.011.30169

    MS Office 2013

    The issuse occurs when using the Create PDF tool with MS Word and MS Excel files. You pick your file > Create > get an error from Adobe PDFMaker "An unexptected error occured. PDFMaker was unable to produce the Adobe PDF."

    The file is then silently held open in 'read only mode' and you have to kill WINWORD.exe or EXCEL.exe in task manager to release the file.

    In Word/Excel File > Save as Adobe PDF works and Printing to Adobe or Microsoft PDF works. Seems isolated to CreatePDF tool.

  10. Embed pdfs as clickable objects within pdf that work when viewed in any pdf reader e.g. browser

    Embed pdfs as clickable objects within pdf that work when viewed in any pdf reader e.g. browser. So can add pdf to word and then share and people can click on the embedded pdf to read it. But if I save the Word doc as pdf the embedded objects cease to be clickable. Annoying. And support's option of adding files into the pdf doesn't help as doesn't work with people who use browser as pdf reader.

  11. Add an option to "save as PDF" from MS Word with "Bookmarks panel and Page" by default

    Add an option to the Microsoft Word Adobe Acrobat driver that allows to save as PDF with the "Navigation Tab" - "Bookmarks panel and Page" property of the PDF file activated by default.
    Currently it needs to be activated manually. The driver only saves with the "Navigation Tab" - "Page Only" option.
    Other Drivers such as AutoCAD; however, save as PDF with the "Navigation Tab" - "Bookmarks panel and Page" property of the PDF file activated by default.
    Thank you.

  12. Displaced text during PDF conversion from PowerPoint

    Text in vector graphic images (.svg/.emf) files get displaced and in some cases overlap with other objects in the image during PowerPoint to PDF conversion with Adobe. This issue wasn't present when using Adobe PDF Library 20.9.95

  14. Preference Settings for Initial View

    I just purchased a brand new Dell with "supposedly" current version of Adobe Acrobat.

    I learn today that the version installed by Dell does not include the global preference setting to set file name instead of document title.

    This is EXTREMELY frustrating lack of a basic setting. Why would anyone think that the user's preferred name for a document is less relevant than where ever it came from.

    I can have hundreds of documents that need to be submitted in very short periods of time and now I have to go in and change each and every one to show…

  15. Add Feature like Adobe Command-Line Tools (*.exe) for Merging Multiple Files into 1 PDF

    Would like for Adobe to have command-line tools (*.exe) for use in batch scripting or any languages for merging multiple documents into ONE PDF file so the task can be scheduled to run nightly... This would be an awesome tool opposing being forced to use the GUI (a manual process).

  16. Merge odd- and even-numbered scanned pages into a single document in the correct order

    When scanning a double-sided document in a non-duplex scanner, you end up with two separate PDFs - one for the odd-numbered pages and one for the even-numbered pages. Combining them in Acrobat Pro creates a single document with the pages in the order "1-3-5-7-....2-4-6-8-...", meaning that we have to manually move all of the pages into the correct order, which is not feasible for hundred-page long documents. We need a 'combine' function that automatically interleaves the pages so that they end up in the order "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-..".

  17. Too difficult to use.

    Creating pdf's used to be simple. I know because I have used acrobat for 30 years. It has become a complete mess. I have tried for 30 minutes to add jpegs to a single pdf and it is still not right. Get some UX people who really know how to communicate. I can't believe how difficult this simple task has become. Sorry but it is true. I have the Adobe Creative Suite so I'm not unfamiliar with adobe. I have used photoshop for 20 years, illustrator for 20 years, premiere pro, InDesign for as long as it has been out,…

  18. lightest weight of a font is used when making a PDF from a webpage

    - make an HTML file from the provided code
    - make a PDF from this HTML file
    - see if your result is different from the attached PDF in the forum post

    Environment:
    Acrobat DC (CC) 21.0 on Mac OS X Big Sur 11.2.3
    Helvetica Neue typeface installed with system: /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.ttc

    Expected:
    A regular (or even medium) weight of a typeface would be chosen.

    Observed:
    The lightest available weight of the typeface is chosen, making the resulting PDF unreadable. PDF attached to forum post is also attached…

  20. "Save as PDF" Bug

    Hello,

    Just wanted to report this bug. So when I combine a bunch of pdf files I save the combined file using the "print as PDF" function (because some of the files are fillable and I want it "flattened") almost 90% of the times it won't save the file in the first attempts and it will happen in the 2nd or 3rd attempt. 5% of the time the output file only has one page(the first page out of 10-20 pages) so I have to try it again.
    I am using Adobe Acrobat 2021.001.20145 on windows 10
