  1. Slow print speed on certain pages from large documents

    Hello,

    in Acrobat Pro DC 2017 and Acrobat Reader DC 2017, the software often stucks during print of certain pages. Compared 1:1 to Reader XI, the old version also takes more time for these pages compared to the other ones but there is a large difference between there versions. In the attached screenshots you can see the difference between these two versions with the printing job started at the same time. The problem occurs while using Windows 7 and Windows 10.

    • Incorrect PDF generated by distiller

      When distilling attached Postscript the generated PDF shows error when opening. I have narrowed it down to an image which has imagemask set to true as well as mask array in it. This is incorrect as per specification.

      I am using Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0.

      • Append a PDF option when using Adobe PDF print feature

        Why is the option to append an existing PDF not available when using the Adobe PDF printer??? I have to use a competitor software to have that feature.

        • Printing locally from Adobe Acrobat Pro DC has never worked despite multiple "fixes"

          I have CC full suite and from the day I had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro DC I have been unable to print locally from any open PDF. I have tried multiple fixes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I've updated the printer drivers and had my IT support look at it. And now that this program is embedded in everything, I can't event go back to Acrobat XI. If I'm lucky I can export the PDF as an image or word document and print from there, but if I'm looking at document that's large that is just simply…

          • Bug - Comments don't print

            A document was scanned and sent to a client, and they digitally signed it with either an app or a program, and returned it to us. Adobe Acrobat recognized these signatures as pencil edits, but would not print them. I could create additional pencil edits, and those would show up when printing, but not the original ones.

            "Document and Markups" was selected in the Comments & Forms section of the print options dialog box.
            "Print Notes and Popups" was enabled in the Comment preferences.

            • Unable to convert/print web pages to pdf files

              I used to be able to convert/print web pages into pdf documents using the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10 version 1703. This week I'm unable to do it.

              • Option to print multiple tabbed documents as a single print job

                Customer should be able to print multiple tabbed documents as a single print job ie: combine all the open tabbed documents into a single print job.

                Sometimes, customer need to print financial reports about once a month for two accounts so that's a Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss report for each account - 4 documents. Now user can manually merge them into a single PDF, but that's not how user want to store them. It would be awesome that instead of user printing 3 copies of each of the 4 documents and then manually collating them into 3 stapled…

                  • Print Error by Internet-Documents with quotation marks

                    When printing an Internet-Document from Firefox 57 the print generates multiple errors if the title of the document to print contains quotation marks. The error box mentions: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 2015\Acrobat\Intellektuelle" Diese Datei kann nicht geöffnet werden." (The file could not be opened. Verify the correct location." - should be the approximate translation.)

                    Where the "Intellektuelle" is the first word of the documet title inside the quotation marks. The same error appears for every word in the title and one additional time. The PDF finally generated contains only part of the document to print. You could try it with the…

                    • Injection of blank pages for printing

                      When printing long documents (books etc.) it would be great to be able to add blank pages, that does not exist in the PDF in order to get a correct double sided print.The size of the blank page could e.g. depend on the page size before the blank.

                      • Adobe is overly secure. I pay $200 / year, and I cant seem to print to PDF.

                        Please make Adobe like it used to be, where I don't have to hack into my account just to print a document to PDF, only to have it tell me it can't print because my account is not activated. I just paid $200 last month for my yearly fee. Can I get my money back??????

                        • Advanced Print Options Do Not Save Correctly in Custom Profiles

                          In Acrobat XI Pro and Acrobat DC, when using the Advanced settings in Print, items such as Screening do not actually persist with saved custom profiles. If you select settings and save it under a new profile, switch to another and then view the profile where you had the desired settings, the settings will be found to never have saved in the first place.

                          Additionally there is no way to save these custom profiles as a default.

                          • Print as Black

                            Prior to Adobe DC, one option for printing was to "print color as black". This was different from 'Gray scale" in that lighter colors (like yellow and pink) would come out as light gray. For folks printing line drawings (piping and electrical diagrams), this is a NECESSITY since the gray scale lines are almost illegible.

                            Previous versions permitted this or provided a work around to print like this.

                            Please reintroduce this to the options, otherwise, we have to use other software to generate the files.

                            If this capability does exist, please make the option simple to find.

                            • Enhanced security breaks printing

                              Several of our clients who use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC have complained of issues printing PDF's. After troubleshooting the issue we found the cause to be the Enhanced Security option located in Security (Enhanced) in the Preferences. If this option is enabled, disabling it allows our staff to print. We even came to a point where we had to enable it and then disable it to fix printing. This issue seems to have started several weeks ago.

                              OS affected:
                              Windows 10 Pro
                              Windows 7 Pro

                              • wrong pdf format

                                If I want to print a file from any program (anyway Microsoft Word or any picture or any drawing from my CAD Programm) with the printer "adobe.pdf" as pdf, it always produces a portrait format-pdf, even if the original file is in cross-format. Attached files as sample.
                                Maybe it is a bug?

                                • Adobe Distiller: erasepage erroneously transmits a page

                                  The operator ‘showpage’ should push a piece of paper through the printer; ‘erasepage’ should not. Analogously, erasepage should not add a page to a PDF.

                                  In XI Pro 11.0.21 (26/07/2017), the following code makes a two-page file, the second page being blank. It should be a one-pager. This bug has cost me hours of attempting to debug my PostScript.

                                  • Bug - Error when printing to pdf from Chrome Browser - unless I print just first page

                                    This started happening recently. I am trying to print a receipt from a purchase. Normally - just print to pdf and move on - but now I get an error when I try to print the whole receipt. All is well when I just print the first page.

                                    I am using CC and have already attempted to remove and reinstall. Luckily most of the important information is on that first page

                                    But still - way annoying. What is going on? Thanks for your help!

                                    • Print Production Options not there

                                      When I selected Print Production, the options that are supposed to be listed aren't there. Instead I get "Create a PDF", "Edit PDF", "Export PDF", etc.

                                      • Adobe PDF Printer should be installed automatically.

                                        Adobe PDF Printer should be installed automatically when installing Acrobat DC. Instructions for manual installation are incomplete. Everything worked great until recent update failure and reinstallation.

                                        • Two-sided printing does not work with Acrobat Pro and HP OfficeJet 8710

                                          I have spent the past few months troubleshooting with HP Technicians and have determined that there is a bug when trying to print double-sided documents in Acrobat Pro (DC) using a HP OfficeJet 8710 printer on a Mac. The documents print reverse meaning that for a 3-page document, pages 2 and 3 print double-sided on one sheet of paper while page 1, prints separately. This does not occur with any other HP printers
