  1. Adjust leading on the appearance area for the multi-scroll fillable type.

    I would like to be able to adjust the leading for multi-scroll fillable type. I often have to adjust my art in InDesign so that the type matches the lines on forms.

      • Bug: Unable to set stroke/fill for form objects

        Many months since Mac OS High Sierra was available in public beta, and well over a month since release, there still exists a bug that prevents the setting of stroke and fill for form objects. For the millions of Acrobat users that regularly create forms in Acrobat, this is a very serious bug that should have been fixed long ago.

        • Embedded video in PDF Interactive has borders

          I have a video in MP4, H.264 embedded in an Interactive PDF. Properties are with no border and background white, still before it starts reproducing I see a grey cube in place of the video and as long as it is not in Full Screen mode I have always some kind of border around the video. Even worse, the border changes everytime I open it, sometimes it's above, then beneath, then to the right or to the left. Contacted the support two times already, they can't help. Told me that the senior team would get in contact with me, I…

            • Bug- Acrobat PDF Form document with digital signature fields does not launch

              Since Friday, November 17th, 2017, we cannot open adobe acrobat form documents that contains digital signature fields. When we try to open the document, Adobe Acrobat application is not responding. First, I thought it is about verifying the digital signatures but even the unsigned form cannot be open. Also same document that digitally signed before cannot be open.

              I created this form using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC in April 2017. It was working fine until November 17th, 2017. All our users have same problem.

              OS: Windows 10 Pro Ver: 1703 Build: 15063.0

              • Can no longer send pdfs on my mac - freezes and have to force quit :\

                I can no longer us the 'envelope' button to send pdfs through my outlook on my MacBook. If I attempt to, it freezes and I have to force quit. I have to Save the pdf first and then attach through outlook. I know several others experiencing this same issue. It is very frustrating considering the convenience that button once had. PLEASE FIX THIS! :\

                • One Click Sub-Folder Integration in PDF Portfolio

                  When you combined individual subfolders within a master folder when creating a PDF Portfolio, the previous Acrobat Pro allowed you to do this feature with one click. The current Acrobat Pro DC software requires that you create a portfolio and manually add the individual folders. Please add back the option for the one-click subfolder integration!

                  • Cannot enter calculations for fields

                    It is a Bug, not an idea.

                    When trying to insert a calculation into a form field to show the new date (also with other simple calculations), for example

                    var f = this.getField("Heute");
                    f.value = util.printd("d.m.yyyy",new Date());

                    I can insert it, but when clicking OK the field is empty and nothing calculates.

                    There seems to be an error, snce this has worked befor – or I am doing it wrong, but I cannot see how.

                    Any ideas?

                    • Acrobat link functionality not scripted in NPAPI

                      Have the link functionality able to work in all browser pdf viewers online and not by download.

                      I will attache a file, the click me links work on desktop, but not in a browser window. We cannot expect our clients to download these files in order to use them. It would be great if these buttons continued to work in a browser window without needing to use acrobat as the default viewer.

                      Please respond with any questions. I would love to help make this work. or let me know of any solutions to this issue i am experiencing. Many thanks…

                      • Acrobat Pro DC - Prepare Form - Add An Image Field doesn't work in CC 2018

                        OS: 10.13.1 & Acrobat Pro DC 17.12.20098.240878

                        When building a form for a client, I use the "Add An Image Field". This field stopped working properly after I updated OS and to CC 2018. Now when the client tries to add a photo, everything works as expected through the photo upload process, but the photo will not display in the photo's form field after they click the "OK" button after browsing for and uploading the photo.

                        The options for the button are "Label only", "Invert", State: Up. These are the default settings for the Image field.

                        I was able to…

                            It is not an idea, it is a bug.

                            When I open two exact same PDF files, one that has been created 2 months ago with formula to insert the current dat, calculate prices and costs, and a freshly created PDF to include the exact same calculations to the exact same named fields, I cannot get one single calculation to stick. Neither when adding them via hand, nor via export and import function. When I go to properties/calculations and user definted calcuations and add the copied text there, click ok enough times thennothing happens. when i look into the field…

                            • copy and paste with different names

                              When you have to resize a field such as a check box, it is more efficient to do a copy and paste. However, it is a pain to have to go back and edit each and every field with a unique name. This occurs because your paste autopopulates the name field with the same name. This feature should be able to be turn on or off as needed.

                                  May be a bug. This is for Adobe Acrobat Standard DC Version 2015.006.30355. Happens when dealing with RADIO buttons and using Manual Tabs setting. I can move the Radio group field over and over in the right panel, but it will go right back to original position after a Save and open in edit again. After moving it in right panel, it won't change the tab # when viewing tab numbers either. Discovered I have to select "Order Tabs Unspecified", make the move, and then save. It defaults back to Manual after every save (even when still in edit mode),…

                                    Es ist mir momentan unter Acrobat DC nicht möglich, Formularfelder einzufärben bzw. die Formularfelder farblich zu gestalten.

                                    • Undocumented feature

                                      Despite the submitForm page in the JavaScript API not mentioning the possibility of using a UNC, based on the behaviour of Acrobat Distribution Wizard I decided to test using a UNC instead of a URL by including the following line in my script associated to the MouseUp event of my custom submit button:

                                      this.submitForm({cURL:"//SERVER/SHARE/", cSubmitAs:"PDF"});

                                      To my satisfaction, everything worked as I suspected.

                                      The following line also worked:

                                      this.submitForm({cURL:"smb://SERVER/SHARE/", cSubmitAs:"PDF"});

                                      So this seems like an undocumented feature btw pretty useful for small businesses which in general outsource their web services but mantain an onsite file server.

                                      • Two submit buttons

                                        In https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/setting-action-buttons-pdf-forms.html you can read:

                                        “When you distribute a form, Acrobat automatically checks the form. If it doesn’t find a submit button, it adds a Submit Form button to the document message bar. Users can click the Submit Form button to send completed forms back to you. If you don’t plan to use the Submit Form button created by Acrobat, you can add a custom submit button to your form.”

                                        I added a Submit button to a form and when I distributed it I got two submit buttons: the one I added plus the standard one generated by Acrobat inside…

                                        • Machine Learning Form Analysis

                                          After OCR recognition provide a facility not just for correcting the text, but for meta-data labeling of fields and regions. This data would make machine-learned document management much more effective.
                                          For example, the automated extraction of data from Insurance company EOBs. You might argue, of course, that this is not in Adobe's balliwick, but I'd argue that this is a natural addition to your commenting tools.
