  2. Issue: Moving fields that are partially or entirely offscreen recenters on top left corner of bottom-rightmost field in selected group

    Say I have a 2x2 table of fields:

    A1 A2

    B1 B2

    I've lassoed all four fields and have zoomed in so that only A1 and B1 are visible. I grab A1 and move it to the desired location. Immediately after I release A1, the view recenters on A2.

    The relocation/recentering doesn't appear to be consistent but I haven't identified all the variables. It seems to mainly happen when fields that are selected but already offscreen (due to zoom level) are moved with the field that has been grabbed. It doesn't seem to happen if I move a group, where…

  3. Properties for Signatures

    While these properties would be welcome across several products like Fill & Sign and Adobe Sign, my request is focused on Acrobat and is rather simple. From the thousands on comments and Youtube videos, this appears to be a necessary change which Adobe needs in order to compete with DocuSign Hello Sign, etc.,
    The Sign field needs properties to choose from including: Digital Signature or eSignature along with boxes permiting (restrictining) drawing, typing and/or image; including whether the date the signature or the signatory's name are to be included. Functionality should be included so that the same signature may entered…

  4. Linking Multiple Text Boxes

    I am in need of the ability to link two (or more text boxes) on a form that is single lined, but has certain answers that continue on a second line underneath. By linking the two boxes, once the first is full (a set font size would be required, not auto) it would continue on into the second box. A multiple line box doesn't work in this instance because I have two (or more) separate lines that are not the same width.

    *Similar to how linked text boxes work in InDesign

  5. Icons for 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' are mislabelled

    This has been reported before, but is still wrong in the latest version of Acrobat. The icons for 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' are labelled the wrong way around. They function correctly when clicked; it's just the symbols that are wrong. If you look at the same feature in InDesign and Illustrator, you'll see that Acrobat does not match.

  6. Ability to add a signature box prompting the user to draw their signature

    I need to be able to add a signature field to a fillable form that when clicked on presents the user with a box allowing them to DRAW their signature. The forms are for a customer service desk that will see many different customer and creating a digital signature for each different customer would be undesirable in this environment.

  9. Redact function not working

    Spent over two hours connecting with a tech, remote access, uninstalling & reinstalling Acobat PRO DC. Got disconnected one then reconnected. The 2nd agent finally gave up on me and just disconnected the session altogether without the issue being resolved. Even turned off the "problem notification" so now I can't refer back to the error msg I was receiving. Great, wonderfully sh!tty service.

  11. Cannot Install Reader DC and Acrobat Pro DC so as to Preview Forms

    Our Enterprise Developers use Acrobat to create and publish forms. In order to verify the forms before publication they used to use Reader so they could see the form as a user would see and interact with the form, making adjustments as needed. They can no longer do this as Acrobat Pro DC prevents the installation of Reader DC. This needs to change ASAP

  12. insert new page form

    I would like to suggest a feature where a customer can select a "Add New" button.
    this feature will then insert information based on what the creator has selected.
    E.g. New Page (Page will be hidden from view until this option is selected)

    I currently have an order form where customers specify how they want their product to be fitted using a diagram with reference points and numbers. However with jobs requiring multiple items, I am currently having to send them multiple documents for each product. rather than have the option to add a second page to form where they…

  13. Add Image/Photo Capture Field to Forms

    I want my customers to be able to fill out an Adobe Form on an iPad with a feature to capture a photo of their ID. Currently there is not an image/photo capture field that can be included in the form. just the ability to add a photo to a form in the design.

  15. Installing Acrobat Pro plus Acrobat Reader is a necessity

    PDF forms developpers needs to test their forms (created with Acrobat Pro) with Acrobat Reader, so we need to have Acrobat Pro AND Acrobat Reader on the same computer.

    Preventing us from doing so is a nonsense that forces us to use competing software (Foxit or PDF Studio).

  16. event.target.buttonImportIcon(); - is it possible to modify to allow jpegs to be placed using Reader

    When we add an image field in Acrobat pro and then save as reader (for client use) they cannot replace the image with a jpeg (normal format for pics) - can the java script be amended to allow this. Annoying as we can only create documents to be opened with Reader with editable text fields at the moment as editable image fields dont seem to work (unless the pic is a pdf and clients struggle with this). Any advice/ideas/workarounds appeciated. DP

  17. The ability to protect a fillable document while allowing the fillable sections to still be filled

    When creating office documents that involve questionnaires, there is a need for those fillable spots to still be made fillable while locking the rest of the document so the "original" words don't get changed.

  19. Mac Only - PDF Form Fields Turned On/Off via Check Box do not highlight after specific fields have been changed to different field types

    Hello,

    The following issue appears to be Mac specific. This is not an issue on Windows machines, as all of my testing on multiple machines suggest it's only on Mac's.

    The short story:

    On Mac's only, changing a text field format in Acrobat Pro DC (ex - changing to a date field) causes the field highlighting to no longer work on those fields that have been adjusted, and are fields that are shown/hidden based on checking/unchecking a check box.

    The long story:

    I recently have been trying to troubleshoot a relatively minor issue that I can replicate when creating form…

  20. Data Matrix Barcode doesn't work with German special chars like äöüߧ

    I want to use a Data Matrix Barcode field in a form in Acrobat Forms, like I do in LiveCycle Designer ES4. But here I get into trouble: DM-Barcode doesn't encode the German special chars! I get weird encodings instead of the char. The same entry in a QR-Code-Field works as expected!
    Because ist works fine in LiveCycle Designer and in the QR-Code I assume this is a bug.
    I found no solution to finetune the field to become German-friendly ;-)
    I attach a quick and simple example-form (for use in Acrobat, not Reader, of course).
