  1. 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…

  2. 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 ******.

  4. Recieve an 'Out of Memory' in Acrobat Pro DC

    I exported a file from InDesign 15.1.2 x 64. When opened in Acrobat Pro DC Version 2020.012.20043, the page is blank and I get the error Out of memory. Other people also report they have seen the same error with my file. Please see attached file.

  5. For adobe pro add drag and drop pdf's directly from outlook without opening the pdf

    For combining pdf's in adobe pro would be nice to have a option that you can drag a other pdf directly from outlook into a other pdf file without opening the file. You now need to open bove pdf's first to combine it would be faster to open one pdf and then drag the other once right away into one pdf.

  7. 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.

  8. Prepare Form Bug

    When creating a pdf using the Prepare Form function, text boxes that are created separately and have separate fillable fields associated with them are automatically grouped together after saving and then reopening the pdf. This creates a problem when trying to format the document. I need to be able to move each text line/box separately to format, but when the text lines/boxes get automatically grouped together, I lose the ability to format each individual text line/box. I have tried to re-separate the individual text lines into separate text boxes, but when I save the pdf and reopen it, the text…

  9. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. When I have a starred file open, it does not allow me add it to my combined documents like I could before.

    I used to be able to open a starred file, then create other pages, and combine. The program fixed it but then went back to not allowing the combine to happen. Then I have to search for the document in old history which can be hard to find.

  13. Retain page labels when combining pdfs

    Retain page labels from the individual files when combining pdfs. Particularly needed for engineering drawings. Also consider allowing manually typing page labels, which would be faster than using the current dialog for non-sequential pages. Bluebeam Revu already does both of these tasks. I would prefer to stay with Acrobat, but Bluebeam is a strong pull because they understand what technical jobs need.

  14. Portfolio (mode) needs improvement. Sorting needs to be available so that sorting is possible. Removing and adding at the back is not very

    Portfolio (mode) needs improvement. Sorting needs to be available so that sorting is possible. Removing and adding at the back is not very good design. Drag and drop of document sections should be available. (Using Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017)**** I just saw a post that is available on the Adobe DC version. (My company has not purchased that yet). Wish 2017 could have a patch update to make it happen.

  15. Wrong file title in pdf

    Adobe, Regardless of version of Acrobat, whenever I open a PDF that came originally form a Word file, the wrong file title appears in the title bar above the page. Please fix this. It is maddening. I get sent documents from our admin people to put up on our webpage for all our employees and since I am not the author of the document I cannot fix it myself. It is a constant problem.

  18. .docx to PDF/A-1a in Word Minor Bug

    When creating a PDF from a .docx file from within Microsoft Word, when PDF/A compliance is set to "PDF/A-1a", text boxes will have borders in the PDF even when they do not have borders in the Word document itself. No other PDF/A compliance setting exhibits this bug.

  19. Let sound files on PDFs open in Email attachments as they used to.

    I am a musician and have been using Adobe Pro to send PDF flyers with a sound bite attached to the PDF that played when the email attachment was opened. This gave an immediate result. I am amazed to find that due to an upgrade Adobe Pro will no longer do this, instead if you send a flyer to a potential venue they have to open the email attachment, save it to a file, close it, open it again, trust it, close it and open it another time before the sound can be heard. New venues are not going to…

  20. Create PDF extension

    Adobe Create PDF extension is no longer available for Firefox because Firefox has stopped supporting NAPI. I would like Adobe to develop a replacement for the Create PDF extension. It did a much better job of creating a PDF from a web page than Print to Adobe does. It also allowed the output to be added to an existing PDF file. This was very useful when you had several web pages that were essentially part of one subject or transaction. It allowed you skip saving the pages as individual files and then combining them as a separate step. Please bring…
