  1. Notification of download for files uploaded via Acrobat Upload feature

    We are a print and packaging company and use the Acrobat Upload feature in Outlook when sending proofs - It is awesome and saves a huge amount of time. Now I have been wanting to speed up the "Approval" time by contacting our clients which we send these links to, however I do not want to nag them thus I was thinking that if there was a download notification which gets sent once the client has downloaded the file - then we cold follow up as we know that they have downloaded the file but not approved it yet.

    Hope…

  3. Acrobat doesn't recognize the MAC system default printer as its default

    I have 2 network printers. Acrobat always defaults to the first printer in the system printer list, not the one that is the actual default printer. All other apps, including photoshop recognize the system default. This is a bug that should be fixed!

  4. PDF produced by Sibelius is displayed correctly, but prints badly, an unacceptable disparity

    I am using MacOS Big Sur 11.6 and Acrobat Acrobat version 2021.007.20099.

    The attached "Ful Score" PDF is displayed properly on the screen by Acrobat, but Acrobat prints it badly. I also included two screenshots, a *.png of Acrobat's display of the PDF (which looks OK) and a pdf produced by scanning a physical printout of that same PDF printed by Acrobat, which shows that Acrobat prints the file really badly.

    The PDF was produced by Sibelius. I might say Sibelius was at fault for producing a bad PDF (probably with layers, but I'm not sure of the internals), except…

  5. print without enable all features

    Can an option be implemented that will allow portions of a file in "system protection" mode to be printed.

    Currently to print files from the internet I seem to have to "enable All" features - whatever All features include in order to print many, if not all files.
    Frequently I definitely do NOT want whatever links in the file and any other processes that could connect to other systems or get "stuff" from the internet, or possibly change settings on my system.
    I just need a hard copy of a document - or maybe just a single page.

  7. Standard printer

    Please make a selection to define a standard printer.

    I have two printers in use with my MacBook Pro.

    1x label printer

    1x inkjet printer

    Adobe Acrobat always uses the label printer and not the default printer.

    In the system settings, the default printer is the inkjet printer.

    All programs, regardless of whether they are Office or system programs, recognize this device, but not Adobe.

  10. What seems to be a printing bug in 21.007.20091 of Acrobat Reader DC

    User has a Citrix virtual desktop with a USB HP printer connected to a Thin Client, and redirected into the Citrix desktop using the Citrix Universal Printer.
    Prior to this version, opening a PDF and printing to that redirected printer presented no problem. On this most recent version it does with a quick "The document could not be printed" error and then it spits out a blank page.
    Ideally I'd like to get my hands on 20.005.20058 to verify this, but I cannot find the full download now. I have however installed an older version 15.*** and this prints just…

  11. PDF portfolio maintaining print settings for each file.

    I'm having trouble with pdf portfolio keeping the same print setting for all of the documents in the portfolio. For example, I may have 28 pdf files in the portfolio and I want each file to print front to back and staple. It will print the first file to spec, but the subsequent files will print single-sided or front to back without stapling. How do I change this? Those in my office who use a pc do not have this problem.

  12. Adobe reports Printer in offline mode and wont print

    Adobe will not print on my HP Designjet T520 as is says the printer is offline. Drivers and Adobe are up to date. Foxit PDF reader has no issues printing my files but lacks some things i like about adobe. I think there is an issue with your software to not recognize a printer. I would not be saying this if Foxit or other PDF readers had an issue printing on this printer but adobe is the only one who will not see the printer is online.

  13. Acrobat reader is leaving temp font (F@XXXXX) behind which is leading to weird characters in our oracle application

    When users are printing with acrobat reader then the Arial font is getting substituted by a Z@XXXXX tmp font which is located in C:\Users\xxxxxxxxx\AppData\Local\Temp\acrord32_sbx.
    Our oracle JDE application is referring to a font family with Arial as leading one and this will finally give weird characters in our JDE screens.
    We would like development team of Adobe to verify why those temp fonts are left behind because they are locked and we can not delete them. Only a restart of the pc will disconnect the temp font and then we will be able to delete them.
    Some articles were pointing…

  14. Print Thin Lines

    There is a button in Adobe Acrobat Pro that allows toggling thin line weights as shown on the screen on and off but there is now way to get the document to print with thin lines. This is true of both PDF and physical printers. This can make working with and sharing readable engineered drawings difficult. Please follow up on this regardless of vote count! If you need to gauge interest in this request you should search "how to print thin lines in Adobe Acrobat" and easily see that this improvement would be widely appreciated. Adobe has obviously realized the…

  15. Printing environmentally friendly

    Factsheets, whitepapers, etc. often have a lot of brand colours in them. In the case of the company I work for, we have a dark blue front and end page which results in the use of a lot of ink when printing which is environmentally unfriendly.

    Wouldn't it be a great idea to be able to overrule this branding for printing?

    I guess this can be done using AI searching pdfs for dark backgrounds and white letters. and making the letters dark and backgrounds white so you can print environmental friendly.

    The best option would be to enforce this as…

  16. Remove the Acrobat print dialog

    Please make it possible to deselect the Acrobat print dialog and instead use the native print settings only.

    It would save a ton of misprints and wasted paper.
    All other apps can make it work, so I believe you can too.

  17. Please make it possible to print all text/comments within scrolling text boxes within fillable PDFs.

    Many have asked for this for years & I saw at least one other suggestion of this declined for some reason...please make it so that all text/comments entered within scrolling text boxes in a fillable PDF can be printed out......or maybe make it clear somewhere in your help information that this just can't be done for some reason.

  18. Bug - Fonts are not being embeded

    BUG - While using Adobe Acrobat 2017 as a PDF printer, the fonts that are required to display symbols correctly are not being embedded regardless of settings
    Rat Dish1.pdf illustrates the error. It was created by printing to a pdf, an .idw file. Rat dish.invpdf.pdf which was generated through the Inventor app is correct.

  20. Can't print a PDF file anymore

    I have Adobe Acrobat DC 21.005.20048 build installed under W10 Pro (up to date) PC.
    I can't print any PDF file anymore.
    Instead, the system offers me to save the file, every single time I hit the Print button, on any file.
    Apart of that, under Properties button on Print dialog box, an unnecessary complicated menu appears where I can't save printing profiles anymore.
    Who the **** modified what herein?
    THIS IS A MONTHLY PAID SERVICE, REMEMBER?
