  1. Batch encryption pop-up box for multiple files needs option: "do this for all files"

    When applying a security policy to multiple files, each file should not have to automatically open with a pop-up box "do you want to save changes to "filename"? When the question pops up for the first file, we need to have a little checkbox with the option to select: "do this for all files".
    It's extremely tedious when asked the same question over and over (120 times) for a batch of PDFs to which you've selected to apply a security policy.
    Also, there's a slight bug - the security policy is never applied to the final file.

  3. Checkbox to flatten files before combining

    I used acrobat to create a fillable pdf. Now, when I receive them back, I want to be able to combine them into 1 pdf. When I do that, it overwrites all the fields with the info from the first file. Incredibly not helpful. If there was a box that I could check that would tell the program to flatten the files before they were combined, that would be helpful.

  4. Text Field Options: Double Spacing, Single Spacing, Blockquotes

    I am making grant application forms where students have to write a short essay that sometimes needs to be 2-3 pages in length. Others have already requested options where the text fields can be linked and the text can flow from one page to the next. I have definitely voted in favor of this option.

    I would like to add another option. I would like the option to format the text that is entered in the text field as double-spaced, single-spaced, or in blockquotes. It seems like there should be much more robust options in this regard.

  5. PDF Printer executable to be installable anywhere (CRM:00989000000047)

    Dear all,

    I have just talked with your support but unfortunately I didn't get the hoped reply.
    Anyway, as you may know we're experiencing a bad period around the world about Corona Virus and also for IT Technicians like me is not easy to manage all of the requests related to satisfy users in Agile Working from home, that the company require to us.
    One of the most challenging request to us is the one related to the paperless solution, combining existing systems with PDF solution in order to provide digital prints.

    In my case at the moment, I'm using…

  6. When it works please leave it alone.

    Acrobat just updated and now I have no control over the creation of fields in forms as it constantly defaults to auto fill. What a mess and right on deadline! Please a simple button which turns this on or off, with the default to off as auto still only does half the job and now I find I can't over ride it...even in the preferences forms section...I am not a happy user!

  7. Form entry removes leading zero on number fields

    Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20034, Entering a number in the Maryland application form for absentee ballot, a four digit field removes the leading 0. This leading 0 is necessary. I have fiddled with properties some but I will have to print the form and fill that in by hand.

  8. Document Name should be unique to each file name

    I use this produce daily. Love split function - makes processing more efficient.
    The most recent update took away the feature to have more than 1 document open at a time. This has caused a tremendous slow down with processing.
    To get around this, I combine the pdfs, delete the bookmarks, create a new bookmark for each document, then use the split feature under organize pages. This is more work than it should be.
    Please fix this a.s.a.p.

  9. Multiple emails for receiving Adobe Form Responses

    When distributing and tracking an adobe form through email: the ability to specify more than one email address to receive form responses. Currently only 1 email address can receive responses and it has to be the same email address as your Adobe ID.

  10. Customizable Checkbox Shapes

    Would love the ability to upload a shape or image that could populate form checkboxes. For instance, we would like to have the checkbox use a key as the check.

  12. BUG: "hidden" property of form field

    When creating a form field in an editable PDF, applying the "hidden" property for the field renders it uneditable, not invisible. I've created several forms, and just recently had this happen, and all of my other previously created forms that have hidden fields are now opening with visible fields.

  13. Link to Specific doc page

    Previous versions of Acrobat were capable of linking to a specific page in another file (document). DC10 apparently does not have that capability.

  15. Customize file comparison colors

    391/5000
    In old Adobe, it was possible to customize our legend colors when we compared forms. This allowed us to put more visible colors since we find that the current colors are very pale. Adobe is our main working tool and it would really help us to have this functionality, as in the past.

  16. LiveCycle Interactive Forms Load Much Slower in Acrobat DC than Acrobat XI -- JavaScript Executes Slower

    LiveCycle Designer created interactive forms open significantly slower in Acrobat Pro DC on Windows than they did in Acrobat Pro XI on Windows. Forms that would take 5 - 10 seconds to load in Acrobat Pro XI, now take between 30 - 60 seconds to load in Acrobat Pro DC (2019.021.20061).

    Based on comparing performance of the identical scripts in both Acrobat XI and Acrobat DC, it appears that the JavaScript code in the initialize and calculate events are running 3 - 5x slower in Acrobat DC vs. Acrobat XI.

    What changed in Acrobat DC that is making JavaScript code…

  18. How should I fix the neat gear readyshare is not working problem

    Recently, I encountered an issue with the Netgear ready share. Whenever I tried to copy all music files from my ready share USB drive, all the time, I was getting the slow internet speed. I did not expect such a poor internet speed from my Netgear router. Can anyone tell me which router is best for the ready share working?
