  1. MS has a new default font - Aptos. However, Adobe does not render this font well at all - it's a hot mess, especially at low document zooms. e's are smaller, a's are bigger than the rest of the text.

  2. I want to use PDFMaker to creat a PDF from an MS Word dokument which contains graphics created and inserted with ChemDraw. When the PDF is created it does not look like it should.
    I use Acrobat Pro 2023.006.20380 and MS Word 2310 Build 16924.20150

    Attached you can find the MS Word dokument and also the generated PDF. The graphic on top is the one inserted with ChemDraw (22.2.0.330). The lower one was converted into an SVG and inserted into the dokument as Vector grphics.

  3. I am a paid Adobe subscriber.
    When I run the PDF, the phrase “Free Trial” keeps popping up.
    This phrase was seen intermittently in 2023. When will this be fixed?

  4. I'm on Adobe DC V23.0 on a Mac (Ventura 13.0.1 (22A400)). Create a PDF > Multiple Files > Combine Files > Next. I've tried combining 2 JPGs into a single PDF file. Used to do it all the time. Now not working. Application stops responding while on "Checking for Security Settings..."

  5. Hi Adobe Support Team. I would like to report a bug in Acrobat. We added an Emoticon [Windows button PLUS dot button] in Word [Office 365]. When we want to make a PDF from this Word file, the text after the Emoticon is simply missing in the PDF version. The same happens when we add other symbols. I thought I let you know. We would be happy if you would fix this...

    I have added a file which has little orange symbols. Those symbols cause the same failure as an Emoticon would do. If you remove the symbols, the PDF…

  6. So Combining the PDF option Creates an extra page. This does not happen when a Word document is saved and then combined. It seems that ADOBE's Conversion is either detecting Footers or Headers as a page and creating an extra page. How do we fix this? The issue is with the conversion not combining the files. Not an issue with Word since it is capable of saving as PDF without the extra pages. It would also not save certain pages.

  8. An Australian customer operating in the financial advisory domain would like to add a disclaimer footer notes.They would also like to have a

    Customer Ask

    a. Add a disclaimer footer note on documents selectively.
    b. The disclaimer should auto populate once the document is imported in Acrobat.

    Current Process

    The customer has developed a small widget at the top of the Acrobat UI through Java script which gives them the ability to add the footer once a word file is opened in Acrobat. This is however is not a fool proof solution as the user add the footer manually.

  9. Warum kriegt ihr das seit Jahren nicht mehr hin was anständiges abzuliefern? Nicht einmal Copy&Paste funktioniert in Acrobat ... lächerlich!!! Ständig muss man sich mit eurem Schei.. auseinandersetzen! Nichts funktioniert reibungslos und dann wird man noch genötigt euren Müll mit zu fixen! Testet euren Schei.. einfach mal vor Auslieferung! Das kostet mein Geld und meine Geduld!

  11. Using Microsoft Word for Mac Ver 16.78.3 under Mac iOS Sonoma 14.0 as recently updated. Seems any bullet points done in WORD no longer convert properly as a pdf. Instead they appear and open squares. Others in my office have NOT updated to Sonoma and bullets are working properly. HELP!

  13. 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)…

  14. When pressing Save As, it was previously possible to use Arrows (keyboard) to navigate to appropriate path. With this new version, it was disabled.

    It saves tons of times when you create/edit pdf (I usually do about 300-400 per week)

  15. The File>Create PDF from Web Page feature is mostly broken. It's been getting worse the last few years. Today I got annoyed enough to file this bug.

    This feature used to work REALLY well! I loved it! I used at least daily to test broken links in web help and other web pages. Plus, it was great for doing quick-and-dirty research--it could spider down a level or two and you could click a link in a PDF created using this method and add on new pages as you researched a topic and went in different directions (that part may still…

  16. After creating a pdf, the front page (built of several layers in indesign of which one is half transparent), keeps flickering on and off. I cannot present this to my client. Never had this before. This happened more often eversince the new pdf interface (not a helpful update in my opinion). Also regular tekst sometimes flickers as I open somebody elses pdf file. I hope you can fix all this or offer the option to go back to the older interface (which was good). OSX Ventura 13.6 - pdf version 2023-006-20360.

  17. Ever since the new Adobe update I cannot combine 4-5 photos to create a single PDF. I used to do this all the time, but now it does not let me. Extremely frustrating as I am trying to get work done and I cannot do a basic function. Ive tried downloading the photos all sorts of ways, and even tried to work around the error through dropbox. Nothing works. I cannot upload the photos.

  18. When combining multiple single-page PDFs into one large PDF, Acrobat steals window focus every few seconds. Acrobat is repeatedly seizing window focus and popping back on top of the other windows.

    I would like to continue work while Acrobat works, but I can't. Instead, acrobat grabs the mouse and keyboard back every few seconds. This renders my computer completely unusable while Acrobat is running.

    To replicate this bug:

    1. Select 50 PDF files.
    2. Right-click and choose "Combine in Acrobat"
    3. Inside Acrobat, click "Combine".
    4. Return to work.

    While you are trying to work, Acrobat will continue to steal focus and push it's…

  20. When adding "Rich Media" to a PDF one cannot include text with the button to play the Sound or Video no matter what size the "box" with the button is made. Would be good to have this option and not just including a "poster" - which I take to be some sort of art - with the button.
