  1. adding blank option to dropdown

    Ive created a form with about 20 drop down fields as most of these fields wont be used at the same time. When trying to send through adobesign, it restricts me from moving forward because I have "blanks or spaces entered." If there was a null or blank option that would leave the boxes empty vs. having to have the fields/dropdowns all say "please select if applicable," this would give it a much cleaner look

  2. Acrobat DC restricted by GPO. Working on Whitelist.

    Using Server 2016 Standard domain. Under "Run Only Specified Windows Applications" the following EXEs have been whitelisted:

    AcroRd32.exe
    Creative Cloud.exe
    Adobe CEF Helper.exe
    CCLibrary.exe
    Adobe Desktop Service.exe
    AdobeARM.exe
    RdrCEF.exe
    armsvc.exe
    AdobeARMservice.exe

    It's probably a simple fix I haven't found yet. Please let me know if there is some other configuration I need to change or additional programs I should whitelist in order to make Acrobat DC start correctly for non-privileged users. It seemed to be working without issue recently until issues began being reported to me this week. Version is up to date.

  6. Cannot edit file as a form due to security settings

    Have spent about 8 hours remediated a form to make it accessible and now my final version (I have saved 14 versions during editing) will suddenly not allow me to edit the form fields or even enter the "Prepare form" tool. When I open this doc, I immediately get a message that "cannot reflow this page because it contains interactive annotations. I hit OK and then I try to enter form editing and get the "Cannot edit file as a form due to security settings". I didn't set any security limitations and when I try to open/edit security, it grayed…

  7. Remove required field red box once criteria is satisfied

    There is javascript for this but you have to enter it individually for each field and it doesnt work for radio buttons. Please add this as a standard feature. The red boxes are confusing and misleading if a form has been properly filled in.

  8. Add "modes" to JavaScript authoring

    Add authoring "modes" (desktop vs. mobile) to the JavaScript editor so that the syntax checker will alert the form author when JavaScript objects, properties, or methods in their code are not supported on Adobe viewers on mobile devices.

  9. Checkmark Symbol needed for Dropdown form

    Recent changes at work require a dropdown list that includes the option to select a "Checkmark", ie Wingdings Unicode 252 or similar. I have been unable to add a checkmark to my Options > Item List. Cut/paste results in a different symbol than desired.

    Is this option already available for Acrobat Pro DC, (if so, how?), or is this a new request?
    Kindest regards - Sam

  10. Bug: LiveCycle Designer form not showing up in Acrobat Pro 2019.012.20036

    Since the update from 2019.012.20035 to 20036 I cannot even view a PDF-Form created in LiveCycle Designer on Acrobat Pro Win any longer. Also the DataMatrix-Field that worked perfect with 20035 is not updating in Adobe Reader (where I CAN display the form!!!). On a Mac with same version visibility of the form YES, but also no updates of DMC on both Pro and Reader. This must be fixed very soon!

  11. Add full Javascript property support to Span Object

    Currently, in the JavaScript API, the Span Object properties only support a subset of the formatting options available in the Properties toolbar. Please add properties to the Span Object to fully support all properties that can be set via the UI.

  12. Recover files

    Is there a way to shut off the file recovery feature? I close out of files using the red box in the upper corner of the program. It keeps asking me if I want to recover the files because the program closed unexpectedly. The blue flag popping up all the time is distracting.

  13. Tagged Form Fields Failed - Identify Form Fields Not Working In Pro 201

    I have upgraded to 2017 (2017.011.30138)

    I have created a form, adding my fields one at a time and changing the Name and ToolTip for each field.

    When I run an accessibility check I get a Tagged form field - Failed error for every single field.

    When I run Identify Form Fields nothing happens except the Identify Form fields and Autotag Form Fields options grey.

    I went back to Prepare Form Tools and double checked the fields. They all have unique field names, and all have unique tool tips.

    I tried to look at the field via the Reading Order…

  14. BUG: Text getting replaced when I combine similar PDFs

    I just noticed this bug. Every month I combine several PDFs to send to my accountant:


    1. My bank statement

    2. At least one check image that's a deposit

    3. At least one check image that a payment.

    Each check image has above it data pulled from the check Date of deposit, amount, check number.

    No matter what I do or how I do it when I add in the second check the data mentioned just above is replaced with the data from the first check. So I have two images of check but all the info is wrong on the second check…

  16. Prepare Form Keeps Crashing

    Prepare Form keeps crashing when I click to open it. Edit is not working either. The program is very slow when opening application/program. The app freezes a lot.

  18. Please have the "EMAIL" from PDF feature replaced for ADOBE ACROBAT STANDARD DC users (click on an email and open a new email in OUTLOOK).

    Please have the "EMAIL" from PDF feature replaced for ADOBE ACROBAT STANDARD DC users (click on an email and open a new email in OUTLOOK). I used this feature a lot previously and am VERY disappointed that this feature is no longer available.

  19. Change blue color for fillable form

    I want to change the default highlight color for fillable form boxes. The automatically generated baby blue clashes with all the other colors in my layout. I know I can change it in my personal preferences, but I need to change it for the document so the recipient has the desired viewing experience.
    Users have been asking about this issue for at least seven years now – what's so hard about changing the highlight color for the document (again, NOT my personal settings)? I can change the text and box color once the field is selected, but the default box…

  20. Adobe Forms: "From" field missing enclosing quotes on Export to CSV

    When distributing an Adobe Form, I check the box, "Collect name and email address." The user submits the form, but includes commas in the Name box. The data goes into the Adobe response file just fine. But when exporting to csv, the "From" column doesn't include enclosing quotes. So the columns get shifted.
