  1. Create PDF Dropping Information

    Create PDF Office add-in and function in Acrobat both drop sentences, bullet points, and headers when converting files. This is only happening to the subscription-based users in the office. The users with the Tech Comm suite version of Acrobat do not have this issue.

  2. Wrong interpretation of EPS / AI / SVG file when creating a PDF from Word.

    See the attached files for more info, the dev team surely has more knowledge on the file structures than I do, and the parser for whatever format is involved.

    I have an Illustrator file, created out of an old EPS one. Works fine in Illustrator and everything, exporting to PNG, for example, is no problem.

    However if the drawing gets pasted in Word (365, 64-bit 16.0.14228.20288) and one tries to create a PDF out of it using the COM Add-in the drawing isn't interpreted correctly leading to a garbled mess.

    Office's internal PDF exporter does a better job, but you…

  4. Bookmarks are not carried over from word if document is less than four pages

    Links are not working after converting a Word document to a PDF. After much troubleshooting, the cause of the issue is the number of pages. Four or more pages works as expected, three or less does not.

    To reproduce the issue, create a Table of Contents at the top of the document that links to the Headers of each section. Then Save As Adobe PDF. The expected result is that the Table of Contents will still contain links to the Headers of each section as bookmarks in the new PDF. The observed result is that the links are broken if…

  5. tables no longer export from Word doc to pdf without massive fail

    When a table is exported from Word into Adobe pdf, tables are tagged incorrectly. To pass, very tedious fixes are needed. Please fix this bug.

  6. Accessibility Errors with PDF Maker Update Sept 2021

    Several major bugs have been documented by users in the Adobe Community Forums since Acrobat and PDF Maker were updated on September 14, 2021.

    They are:

    1: Alt-Text from MS Word is not converting into the PDF. Instead, it is dropped and gibberish code is inserted. See https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/alt-text-converting-wrong-from-word-to-pdf/m-p/12393017 This violates the PDF/UA-1 standard which requires that every graphic have alt-text that verbally describes the graphic.

    THIS IS A HUGE BUG. You essentially have made Acrobat unusable for those who are required by their country's laws to make fully accessible PDFs.

    2: Every cell border on every table cell is being…

    Hi,

    Thank you for raising these accessibility issues. The post mentions about the following six bugs being introduced with the update that went live on September 14, 2021

    1: Alt-Text from MS Word is not converting into the PDF. Instead, it is dropped and gibberish code is inserted
    2: Every cell border on every table cell is being tagged as <P>PathPathPathPath
    3: The underline on Hyperlinks should be tagged as artifacts
    4: Borders and background shadings on Text Boxes are being tagged as a combination of <Figure>s and PathPathPath
    5: Paragraph borders and shadings: same deal as #4 above.Per the PDF/UA-1 standard, they are visually decorative and should be artifacted
    6: Dragging and dropping elements in both the Tag and Order panels is now broken.

    Would like to mention that out of these, #1 and #6 were introduced with the Sep 14 update and remaining (#2, #3, #4 & #5)…

  7. Automate the combination of multiple images to PDF, and name the resulting PDF using the Folder's name.

    I would like to be able to place images within a folder, then batch convert many folders to produce 1 PDF per folder. For example "FOLDER1" contains 10 jpges. I would like FOLDER1.pdf to be 10 pages, "FOLDER2" to be FOLDER2.pdf and so on.

  8. Text becomes corrupted when combining PDF documents

    Text becomes corrupted when combining PDF documents.
    I've seen many reports here stating the same problem but have been closed.

    My text in my documents became corrupted when I combined a 141pg PDF full of drawings.
    I performed the same operation in Nitro 10 - no problems whatsoever!

  10. Combine Files - Closing w/out Saving Alert

    On older verisons of Acrobat, when triggering the combine files function, if you exited and closed the app without combining or saving the files it would give you an alert. On DC it does not and ive accidentally closed out of a ton of times where I'm half way through moving files around, combining and then accidentally close it and have to start all over. Should be an easy feature to re-add.

  11. When printing "Multiple", cannot edit margins in Page Setup

    Bug: Cannot edit the margins when printing "Multiple" in Acrobat Pro.

    1. Open a PDF file in Acrobat Pro.
    2. Select Print>Adobe PDF.
    3. Select Multiple.
    4. (Set whatever settings you want, example: Custom 1 by 2.)
    5. Click Page Setup.
    6. The Margins are fixed at 1" and they are NOT editable.

    Bug: The margins must be editable. There is too much wasted white space.

    Refer to the attached screen shot with notations.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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

  20. 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…
