  1. Auto detect form field check boxes within a table format from MS Word.

    I am trying to create a checklist form with several check boxes within a table in MS Word. When I convert to pdf, then use auto form field recognition, it puts tiny text boxes in the check boxes instead of a check box. Tried to get adobe support to help on this only to be informed that acrobat does not support check boxes form field auto recognition in tables. Would love it to do that.

  2. Form fields work on Windows, do not when completed on MacOS

    Drop down boxes work correctly when completed on Windows. Do not display once completed on a Mac and then reopened in Windows, instead displays first item in list.

    Calculations do not work once opened on Mac, and then opened again in Windows

  4. AcroForms VBA plugin does not correctly populate checkboxes when form contains XFA

    Or rather, it populates the checkboxes correctly as far as the PDF side goes: it sets the /V and /AS of the checkbox objects in /Fields correctly, but it doesn't set the XFA side accordingly, whereas it does for text fields. In the Acrobat window the checkboxes show as correctly marked until I close the file. When I reopen the file with Acrobat or Reader, it gets its display information from the XFA, not from the /Fields (and that may be the real bug here), and so doesn't show the checkboxes as marked.

  6. Creation of a field option for embedding external PDFs within a fillable PDF. T

    This would eliminate the need for attaching within an email and allow for completion of form and submission on the end user regardless of whether or not they have the PRO version of Adobe.

  7. Restricting a portion of a PFD Document

    I beleive it a nice feature would be to restrict portions (part of) a PDF would be handy. for ex, i use documents at my institution where part of a document says "for office use only" I would like to restrict that portion from anyone trying to edit that area and only my office staff to be able to make changes with a password.

  8. Cannot open two pdf files at one (when I do it crashes)

    If I have one PDF open and try and open a second, the software crashes. I have to go into windows task list - end task (on Adobe) and start again. Is it just me it does this for?

  9. SERIOUS PROBLEM NEWEST INDESIGN AND OLDER PDF FILE

    I received a PDF file, to be placed in a magazine, with text on a transparent part of the PDF.
    When I place the PDF file in an Indesign document the text on the transparent part is not visible.
    In an older version of Indesign, CC 2019 there is no problem.

    After a chat session of a day with Adobe we find the problem, it’s the version of PDF.
    A PDF file made in version 1.3 of Acrobat distiller. When I converse it to version 1.6 the problem is solved.

    I think Indesign should support also older versions of PDF…

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
