  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. PDF pages will be hidden/show interactively

    We are evaluating the PDF feature for our customer needs, the PDF document should be displayed only a few pages and rest will be hidden, there will be two buttons at the end of the document in displayed pages, 1) Accept 2) Reverse, if user click on Accept button, hidden pages will be displayed, when he choose Reverse, then an email notification will be sent to the document author. I found that Adobe acrobat supports Javascripts but we have difficulty to find the perfect solution for the above problem.

    I want to achieve this by following steps.

    1) While writing…

  5. The Entire Adobe Acrobat Product need a full rework. To keep up with the competition you better rework the who GUI.

    Overall Acrobat is horrible non intutitive a simple google search and you will see I am not the only one that thinks this. I would suggest you work with NON-PROGRAMING design and flow oriented people to fix the issue with Adobe Acrobat otherwise it will be a thing of the past since many companies like ZOHO, Microsoft and Google are doing the work better thought the demand in the business world is PDF because you have marketed it so...I do not believe Adobe will be able to hold up this software as people are innovating their software at light speeds…

  7. Make the form data export more obvious

    Two senior web developers spent an hour trying to figure out how to export a PDF's form data. Do better.

  8. Expandable fields in Acrobat DC/Pro especially since users are not able to print all text content from scrollable field boxes.

    Expandable fields in Acrobat DC/Pro is a necessity especially since users are not able to print all text content from scrollable field boxes. LiveCycle is transitioning out to Adobe Experience manager and this feature should be included within Acrobat DC/Pro in order to provide a smooth transition. It is a feature request that I've seen on message boards for quite a few years. Please take this into consideration.

    Thank you!

  9. Remove red borders and blue shade after a manditory field is filled in

    Remove red borders and blue shade after a manditory field is filled in.

    Right now when you have a required field and you select the fact that they are highlighted. You can't unhighlight them witouth them unhighlighted before you even fill in the document.

  10. 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.

  11. Prepare Form feature to be able to identify a date and apply date box formatting

    The ability to prepare a form from a scanned document (or PDF that had no form elements on it) is a great feature, and if the instructions from https://acrobatusers.com/assets/collections/tutorials/legacy/id2263/acro9designforms.pdf are followed, makes it easy to turn a flat document into a fillable form.

    However, I believe a feature of this has been overlooked since the introduction of the date style form, and that is the ability for the prepare form feature to recognise a date and apply the date style form.

    My request is to update the prepare form feature so that something that resembles a date field…

    Janet,

    Select “Multi-line” and “Scroll Long Text” in “Options” tab of the Properties dialog box for your text field. Also, ensure to widen the width (manually) to allow user to view the content as they type

    And, I have forwarded your request of “Wrap the Text” to engineering. It will be picked up after prioritization.
    We will contact you if we need some more information on this.
    Thank you for your patience

  14. Allow "use current properties as default" to include or delete decimal places.

    When selecting a form field and want to use it for the default, it doesn't allow for the existing decimal place. So, I have to go back and change every number field to eliminate the two decimal default. Also, why can't we just have the default be without any decimals?

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. In Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - add a "subtraction" option in the drop-down box in the Text Fields Properties Box. This would be VERY helpful!

    Not having a subtraction option in the Text Field Properties reduces the value of the calculate function. The current "workaround" of inputting a negative number to allow for addition is a poor alternative.

    Hi Gary

    You can either use a custom JavaScirpt calculation or the simplified field notation calculation, if your field names follow the required convention, with the “-” operator you will be able to perform subtraction.

    However, we value your suggestion/ideas and we will have the engineering notified. Should we need more information inregard to this, we shall connect with you
    Thank you for your patience.

  18. Feature request: update to latest ECMAScript 2019 from current decade old JavaScript 1.8

    There has been two major releases since Acrobat 10, yet there has been no update to the JavaScript engine to support newer version of JavaScript since version 1.8 that came with version 10 of Acrobat, as stated on the latest Acrobat DC JS API reference. Please update the decade-old-JavaScript 1.8 to the latest ECMAScript 2019 in next major release of Acrobat. Thank you for your consideration.

  19. 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.

  20. Form Fills Auto Detect not working since Mojave Update

    Form Fills are no longer being detected since updated to the new Mac OSX Mojave.

    Previous PDF's that I used successfully with the form fill option are no longer having their fields detected. Not a single aspect of the form has the field detected. When preparing a form, it quickly goes through all pages and detects zero form fills.

    Need this function for my work, and it's currently crippling me.

    :'(
