  1. pagina omslaan/pag flip

    Een aantal jaar geleden kon je via Indesign een interactieve pdf maken en daarbij een pagina omslaan en deze bewaren als pdf/SWF.
    Nu zitten er mogelijkheden in in Adobe Acrobat DC maar helaas niet de page flip/pagina omslaan. Wel het faden van de ene naar de andere pagina.

    A few years ago you could make in Indesign a page flip. Now you can do several things in Acraobat DC but no more page flips for webpages.

  2. ff ligature in semibold Adobe Garamond Pro

    The ff ligature does not render in semibold Adobe Garamond Pro. It produces what looks like a little capital 'I'. Bold works, but not semibold. I'm using Adobe Acrobat 2017.

  3. Turn off the automatic bounding boxes

    When using the 'Add text' tool, DC seems to bind together multiple lines of text. This would be ok if you could break the bind to change the layout. I can't seem to do this and end up deleting and doing the work again....hardly efficient??

    Thank you.

  4. Adobe ribbon not showing in Office 2016 and O365

    https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-acrobat-pdfmaker-problems-office.html#AcrobatRibbonisnotavailabeinOffice2016orOffice365applicationsonWindows

    Instructions from this have been followed, along with instructions from Microsoft to verify the add-in is correctly set in the registry. In both occasions, with Adobe Acrobat Pro version 20.012.20041, the Adobe/Acrobat ribbon is not showing in Excel/Word 2016 or in Word/Excel O365.

    Support agent requested submitting a bug report.

    I've installed the application via mst, without Creative Cloud for enterprise purposes (mst attached), and even on a fresh build of Windows 10, the ribbon doesn't show up.

  5. Combining converted excel file to existing pdf

    I often convert excel files and combine with an existing pdf. I am switching to acrobat pro from omnipage. With omnipage, I would convert my selected worksheets (in a process very similar to acrobat pro), but when i would choose a file name, I would choose the existing file I wanted to combine with and it would give me the option to replace that file or combine to it in the order i wanted (beginning, end, middle). Adobe pro just gives me the option to replace.

    It is my understanding the my only options with acrobat pro are to open…

  6. Dropped spaces between words at end of lines

    Tagged PDFs exported from InDesign drop spaces between words. This occurs in the content at the end of lines, most often in List Items, but also in paragraphs. It occurs nearly all the time in lists, causing screen readers to mispronounce the run-together words unless they are separated by punctuation or the 2nd word has an initial cap.

    This has been a problem for quite a while. Very time consuming to fix -- by adding space manually in Acrobat DC or adding actual text.

    Working on proprietary material here, cannot forward example files and I do not create the native…

  8. Adobe Acrobat DC (20.012.20048) - the right click combine PDFs function doesn't always work and need to close open PDFs first.

  9. interop.acropdflib.dll problems after windows 10 update from c# application

    Hello, we have a C # application in the company, this application is using interop.acropdflib.dll, everything was fine before Windows 10 updated from some days, now every time I press the print button nothing happens, no displays the window for setting up printing.

    Help, it is a problem not being able to print from the application because there are many documents a day that have to be reviewed and sent to print quickly to optimize times.

  10. Tells me update failed to install, when it is installed

    Acrobat DC has become a royal pain in the behind. First of all, with this NUL license concept, it takes way, way too long to convert Word documents to .pdf. It sits there doing nothing for a long time, and finally wakes up and begins the process. Is it possible you people don't test these things? This always happens now, ever since your brainchild change. Secondly, it keeps telling me that it failed to install a version 2020.009.20063, when that version is already installed! What a nuisance of a system this has become.

  11. Create PDF for Javascript-powered web pages

    I like the ability to capture HTML pages together with images into one PDF document.

    Unfortunately the web has changed and many web pages use Javascript to fill out the DOM tree, as a result content is missing from pages like:

    https://ropercenter.cornell.edu/ipoll/search?q=dreams

    which makes a blank page PDF. There are tools out there that can make a capture of modern web pages using Chromium, PhantomJS, or HTMLUnit to run the Javascript. One can be found here:

    https://conifer.rhizome.org/

    sometimes these work, but the WARC file and the WARC file players are awful. It reminds me of the times that you go…

  12. Cannot combine emails into PDF

    Why in this day and age have you still not added any functionality to combine emails into a PDF directly?! Enormous amounts of global productivity is wasted each day on having to individually save thousands of emails individually into a PDF format in order to be able to then bind them into a PDF. You could actually just resolve the issue directly and make everyone's lives a little less ******.

  16. Accessibility Bug: Footnotes not tagging properly in Word-converted PDFs

    There is a bug in the Word to PDF conversion process that is causing footnotes to not tag properly. The footnote text is recognized under the <Note> tag, but the link to the footnote within the text is missing. This issue comes up when using the "Save as..." PDF option. The footnote tags appear correctly when converting using the Adobe Acrobat "Create PDF" add-on in Word. This issue occurs with both Mac and Windows computers.

  17. PDFMaker: Set the Scope, Row Span, and Column Span properties for table headers

    Currently, PDFMaker tags table headers as <TH> when "Header Row" and/or "First Column" are checked in Word. However, it does not change the default scope, column span, or row span of the headers based on these values.

    Description of desired feature:
    * For each table header tag added by "Header Row", set the Scope attribute to "Column".
    * For each table header tag added by "First Column", set the Scope attribute to "Row".
    * If both "Header Row" and "First Column" are checked, and the data cell in the first row and column is not empty, set the Scope attribute…

  18. Lists wrong in Word to PDF conversion

    When converting from Word (O365 ProPlus desktop) to PDF using the Acrobat add-in (Acrobat PDFMaker 20 for Word), lists are not transferring correctly. (Styles are of course used in Word to create the lists properly.) Nested lists lose the nesting and become one long list. Lists that cross pages either: combine the last item on the first page with the first item on the next page in the <LI>/<LBody> tag of the former; or create two separate lists for each page.

  20. Microsoft Outlook for Mac - Convert to Adobe PDF Plugin

    The Acrobat Plugin for Microsoft Outlook on Windows, which enables Users to create an Adobe PDF Portfolio from any Mailbox or Folder while preserving the "From", "Subject" and "Date" fields while also embedding all attachments, is an INCREDIBLY powerful feature that is crucial to many of our business practices. Unfortunately, at this time, this feature is only available on the Windows version of Microsoft Outlook, thus forcing me to run a Windows 10 Virtual Machine explicitly to perform this task. If the Adobe team could implement this feature on macOS versions of Microsoft Outlook, I would be incredibly grateful as…
