  1. Merge a fillable PDF using Microsoft Excel as Data Source

    Please create a feature so that Microsoft excel can be used as a data source for merging fillable PDFs form.

    Customers are asking for this feature, please incorporate an easy to use (without needing to write script) solution.

    The common community forum answer when customers are looking for this feature is referral to a 3rd party.

    We definitely want and need this to be incorporated into Acrobat.

    Thank you.

    Need Info  ·  Bilal Ansari responded

    You don’t need to edit the form to enter the date. Simply click on the field and start typing.

  3. pdf forms exported as flat (non-editable) pdf files

    I have designed forms that my staff complete & then we provide to external sources. I need these to export as a flat file & don't see how that could be accomplished other than export to MS Word & then to a pdf... kinda labor intensive!

  4. Full access to the Properties box for multiple cells at once

    I have imported a pdf into Acrobat to create a fillable form. It "prepares" the form for you once you choose "prepare" form. When you have so many cells that need the same formatting, there isn't an option to copy and paste the same formatting. Being able to choose your cells then open the FULL properties box will give me that option to make ONE change with MULTIPLE cells. Right now you have to go into each cell which is extremely time consuming. This would be amazing if you could change this!! Thank you.

  6. Center text in fillable form field both vertically and horizontally

    If I create a fillable field in a form with mulit-lines, I can center the text horizontally in the field but not vertically. It would be great to add this as a feature.

  7. Flattening Tool

    We need a flattening tool so that we can put stamps/initials/signatures on a pdf that cannot be moved/altered so they can go to our clients. There was a very simple add on to adobe X, but nothing even close in DC. Please update this!

  9. Resize Button Properties window

    It would be helpful to be able to resize the Button Properties window in Adobe Acrobat Pro. Currently the window barely has enough room to display the contents. Resizing would help allow for much quicker form preparation workflows, for example, making the window larger could help minimize the need to constantly use the scrollbars in the Actions tab.

  10. BUG - can't edit fields in a form

    I open a pdf and go to tools > prepare form> open then select a form.

    As soon as I click on 'add a field' or an existing field, a stopwatch icon appears and Adobe closes. So I can't edit a form which makes a fillable pdf form impossible. Given the fee I pay every month I am NOT happy.

    Yes I have the most current version, Yes I tried the 'repair Adobe' option.

  11. Bring back numerical formatting for form field creation

    In previous versions of Adobe Acrobat Pro, I was able to select what type of formatting I'd like the text field to be, such as Phone Number, Zip Code, and decimal numbers as described here https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/pdf-form-field-properties.html#formattabforformfield_properties.

    However, that option appears to not exist any more?

  12. copy field to new document

    Copy & Paste of a field - Within a document works as expected - the formatting, naming of the field is consistent. However if you copy paste into a different document, the field properties seem to reset (if this was correct, why would you copy/paste & not just insert a new field) - expected behaviour would be to keep same size/format/code/name & position(if possible, if not centred on screen).

    Only noted work-around, is to copy existing page into new document, copy/paste field from one page to another & then deleted the inserted page. - Comment elsewhere requests a MS Office…

  13. Multi Select / Assign Participant Role

    Please allow a user to assign a "Participant Role" to multiple fields at once inside of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (Convert to Adobe Sign form). Similar to how you can select multiple fields and make them all required with one click. This isn't always a huge issue, but when assigning multiple fields in a large table format this can quickly become very tedious and massively time consuming.

  14. 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.

  16. [BUG] Filled form-field contents only visible after clicking into the form-field when receiving a filled out form from Mac Users

    When a docx is saved as a PDF (by Microsoft Word 2019 MSO (16.0.12624.20348) 64bit) and form-fields are added in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20042, and the resulting PDF with formfields is then filled out and saved using Preview.app 2020.006.20042 on a Mac, the resulting PDF hides the filled out content of form-fields. Clicking into the filled form field reveals the contents. The PDF renders fine in other PDF viewer implementations.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create an empty word document and save it as a PDF.
    2. Open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and add a form field …

  17. Be able to link text fields so that text entered will wrap from one to the next

    When creating a form, allow text fields to be linked so when someone is filling out the form the text wraps into the next field instead of making the font size smaller.

  18. Allow fields to me removed from tab order.

    This is useful when redundant fields such as pre-populated info from a previously entered field are used. I.e: " Enter Company Name" on a contract is entered and pre populated many times throughout all pages. When tabbing through, these redundant tabs are unnecessary.

  19. BUG: Form Fields Disappear, Can't Modify Name or Tooltip

    Fields become "ghost fields"; they still show up in the sidebar on the right and you can still open their properties. However, you cannot select the form field and type text in it. You also can't change the properties, like name and tooltip fields; when you try to, and click away from the field you just changed, they revert back with no notification. This happens every time I open this file in a different application, such as an Accessibility plug-in called CommonLook, and has happened with other files too. Fixing tags in the plug-in causes forms to break in Acrobat,…

  20. [Bug Report] Deleting a page while the mini page preview is visible produces an error

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2019.021.20061
    When I open a PDF and double-click with my middle mouse button (the scroll wheel), a mini page thumbnail window is opened, similar too the Pan & Zoom window, but slightly different. For a picture of what I mean with the mini page thumbnail see this post: https://superuser.com/questions/428987/how-to-disable-middle-button-showing-a-page-thumbnail-in-adobe-reader

    Note that this is not regarding the Page Thumbnail sidebar nor the "Pan & Zoom" window. There is no menu option to make this mini page thumbnail appear, the only way is to double-click the middle mouse button.

    While that mini page thumbnail window…
