    When adding a PDF Portfolio to a file list (Combine Files) I get the following informational dialog box,

    "File [File name] is a PDF Portfolio that contains multiple files. The files with the PDF Portfolio have been added to the file list." It requires that you click OK, before the files will be added and you can continue.

    I wish to disable this dialog box as I am archiving thousands of files a day.

  2. 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…

  3. PDFMaker Office COM Addin needs a default properties feature

    The Adobe PDFMaker Office COM Addin sets a newly created document's Initial View properties to Single Page Continuous by default. This is usually inappropriate and requires frequently changing via File > Properties > Initial View > Page Layout > Single Page. This repeatedly wastes significant time. To resolve this, the Addin should enable users to set their preferred Initial View properties for all newly created PDF documents. Please add this feature to the next edition of this Addin. Thanks

  4. Convert, not embed, email attachments (carry over attachment into the converted PDF)

    Attachments need to be converted to be included and placed behind the email. Email + attachment in one PDF, not embedded. As previously noted, this is a very important feature for law firms.

  5. Option to add filenames as a header/footer when combining files into a single PDFs

    When creating PDFs with multiple images that each have a unique filename, I would like to be able to insert that filename on the corresponding page so that I can more easily navigate to that file if I need to search for it on my computer.

  7. Support for opening and combining OpenOffice Documents, odt and the like.

    Simply format support for OpenOffice formats used by OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

    This is vital for those that prefer those formats over Microsoft Office formats. While they aren't as fully featured or useful in some cases they are free and open source making them a great alternative to the closed source formats of their Microsoft counterparts. Plus my book features some of these formats and i'm too lazy to convert them over...

  8. PDFMaker Add-in causes Title: Failed error from MS Word 2016

    An accessible MS Word 2016 docx, saved as a PDF with the Adobe PDFMaker Add-in enabled, creates a PDF when Accessibility Checked with Acrobat Pro 2017 results in a Title: Failed error. The same MS Word PDF created after disabling the PDFMaker Com Add-in no longer results in the Title:Failed error.

    The Title: Failed error caused by PDFMaker is easily corrected by clicking "Fix it" in acrobat pro, but the document already has a title and this step should not be necessary. It's better to disable PDFMaker which is installed as part of Acrobat Pro 2017.

    Please fix PDFMaker.

  9. Increase document size on cloud conversion

    I find myself unable to convert a word document file to pdf with proper hyperlinks for the table of contents. Please either increase the size limit for conversion of the files on Document Cloud and/or enable preferences option in Microsoft application for better conversion of files including attaining the hyperlinks in the documents and other features.

  11. Convert html to pdf on Mac

    Please allow html to be created as clickable pdfs on a Mac. The documentation you provide says it can be done on Firefox but that is false. Wasted hours with your support folks before they said it can't be done.

  12. Creating PDF from Office 365 Mac MS Word Results in a Network Error Unrelated

    Case ADB-7492668-J6J4 -Word file is uploaded with embedded fonts as per Preferences (see attached) to the document cloud and then PDF converting Acrobat provides following error (see attached) "Acrobat PDF Conversion could not be completed. This could be due to a network error or if there is no valid Acrobat online service membership." If you go through the same process except NOT embedding fonts the same document will convert to PDF without error. However, the fonts in the PDF file are now different in the Word file as they are no longer embedded. When using a MS OS and upload…

  13. Initial View Preferences for the creation of PDF

    I want to set the "DEFAULT" for the initial view for all pdf documents that I create. I am sick and tired of setting the "initial views" for each and every PDF that I create. Please program a preference that automates the way to set a users preference for creating files with a preset initial view.

    Observed results:

  16. Acrobat DC - Please create version that will enable embeded video

    Adobe Team,

    I have created several thousand Acrobat DC PDFs that contain multiple embedded videos. All of those thousands of PDFs worked pretty much perfectly. Now, due to discontinuation of Flash, none work. I cannot create those PDFs with embedded video. What a nightmare. Please, if you can create a new version of Acrobat DC that restores the capability to embed video, I'll be happy to send flowers! Or money, how about money!? Everything else works fine with Acrobat DC... get the capability back! Thanks, Scott

  17. Error with PDF Maker: missing <Document> tag

    When using PDF Maker 20 with MS Office 365, the tag tree is missing the document root tag. Has a Sect tag instead of Document tag.

    Please correct this tag structure to meet the PDF 2.0 tag standards requirements.

    Screen capture shows the error.

  18. Error in PDF Maker: tagged lists

    When PDF Maker exports PDFs from MS Office, lists are not tagged correctly per the PDF/UA-1 standards.

    Each bullet or numeral character should be encased in an Lbl tag. Correct tag structure should be:

    L

     LI
    
    Lbl (the bullet or numeral character)
    LBody (the body text of the list item)

    At this time, PDF Maker does not include the Lbl tag and combines the bullet/numeral within the LBody tag.

    This is an incorrect, non-compliant tag structure.

  19. Converting files - Acrobat XI Pro vs Acrobat Pro DC

    Acrobat Pro DC does not convert files as well as Acrobat XI Pro. I was told by support that developing code to convert every font is not possible; however it was possible for XI Pro. I don't want bells & whistles. I just want software that works. Attached are files converted via XI Pro and via Pro DC. Converting as a print file works but it is very inconvenient. I have lots of Word and Excel examples which I can send to someone. I do not want to attach confidential files in this type of forum.

  20. White Margins

    When converting, printing, or saving a document to PDF, Adobe Acrobat creates "white margins" on each conversion. To remove the extra margins you have to follow these steps for every document:


    1. Open PDF in Acrobat

    2. Select More Tools

    3. Select Print Production

    4. Select Set Page Boxes

    5. Check Remove White Margins

    This will remove the white margins created by Adobe and use the margins of the original document. I'm told from Adobe Support there isn't a way to permanently set a user preference to prevent adding white margins. Please enable this function as it is currently a pain to have to change…
