  1. Resize

    Please add a RESIZE tool. Even basic programs like Paint offer the ability to resize based on a percentage. I feel like I have to work around this lack of a basic ability by printing it as a PDF in a smaller size, but this doesn't work well since smaller paper sizes are rarely the perfect scale of a larger size (i.e. what's the paper choice for 25% scale of a 72"x36"?). The current "Reduced Size" ability offers no input and automatically reduces at its own discretion (which, in my case only reduced the file by 1% - pointless). It's…

    • Print to PDF

      Google Chrome = Latest Version
      Acrobat X Pro
      Observation: Had no problem prior until 7/28/2017 when I noticed I had problem printing from a webpage (e.g. eBay.com) to PDF using Adobe Acrobat print driver. The printing would stall and this Distiller error would show up each time. Also strange is, I could clear this error message other than restarting my computer. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

        • Use printer default setting for double-sided printing

          Currently Adobe Acrobat DC does not recognise if the default printer setting on my mac has been set to duplex. There is a work around. By pressing the printer button and selecting 'duplex' from the print dialogue box that is revealed, pdfs can be printed double sided (DC warns against doing this by the way). The trouble is that it is easy to forget to follow this process, particularly when I am in a hurry, with the result that pdfs, in my case often 20 or 30 pages documents, are printed single sided. This wastes paper, is environmentally unfriendly and…

          • Add the Ability for Adobe PDF printer to print via Autodesk's Revit. The only alternatives are prohibitively expensive.

            Can you please fix the bugs in the PDF printer plugin that works with Autodesk's Revit. The program is very inconsistent and sometime just stall entirely. This would be very helpful to many users of Revit.

              Hi,

              We need the version of acrobat being used by the customer to investigate this issue.
              As for now, for Acrobat 11.0.21, this issue is already under investigation

              • % counter haywire for very large ps files

                Distiller 11.0.19 17/12/2016): I often distil very large ps files, of the order of 1.3G. When distilling those the % counter goes haywire, reporting negative numbers, and %ages >100. Obviously an overflow problem somewhere: please case to floating point.

                  • … /PAGELABEL pdfmark does not allow pdf encoding

                    In Distiller Pro XI 11.0.20 (28/03/2017), and in many earlier versions, pdfmark is inconsistent about whether strings should be plain ASCII or in the pdf encoding. In particular, “… /Title String /OUT pdfmark” can be in the PDF encoding, but “/Label String /PAGELABEL pdfmark” must be plain ASCII.

                    Example PostScript:

                    %!PS

                    /Times-Bold 48 selectfont
                    /StringASCII (ASCII-encoded string) def

                    36 36 moveto (ASCII string) show
                    mark /Dest /Page1ASCII /DEST pdfmark

                    • Press Quality Preset - Default PDF v1.7 needed

                      I am a Prepress tech using an APPE workflow, the most current release. I have been seeing problems, since my upgrade and the advent of the CC, with PDF 1.4 being submitted for print. Mostly transparency problems. I have people modify their Adobe Press Quality PDF Preset to PDF 1.7, from InDesign. It helps greatly. Also makes me feel more confident in the soft proofing process, as v1.7 passes my EnFocus and RIP preflights better than lesser PDF versions. And I know this is an InDesign PDF export setting problem, but it is a Distiller preset, available within Indy. Can…

                        • keyboard shortcut for Save as PDF/Print to PDF

                          In Mac, I have always used Command+P+P to save anything as a PDF (i.e., print to PDF).

                          Since I've installed Pro 2017 this feature no longer works. I know it works in Sierra, which is what I'm using, because it works on my other Sierra machine in which I have not installed Pro 2017. So it must be a peculiarity to Pro 2017.

                            • Distiller: moveto the currentpoint results in a continuation of current sub-path, not a new sub-path

                              In Distiller XI Pro 11.0.20 (28.03.2017), distill the following:

                              %!PS
                              /StrokeCode {1 setlinejoin gsave 0 setlinecap 24 setlinewidth 0 setgray stroke grestore 1 setlinecap 9.6 setlinewidth 1 setgray stroke} def
                              144 72 moveto 144 144 2 copy 72 144 curveto
                              72 144 moveto 144 144 2 copy 144 72 curveto
                              StrokeCode
                              showpage

                              The moveto should start a new sub-path; display of that point should be determined by setlinecap not by setlinejoin. Alas, Distiller causes it to be determined by setlinejoin.

                                We should be able to print more than 999 copies theses days. This is really a pain. All other product we use here at my company allow to print more than that. I know i can change the values with my Fiery's interface after printing, said 1 copy, but this is a two steps ways and it is less efficient...

                                  • printing multiple copies of a pdf file with odd number of pages double sided

                                    I print multiple copies of a pdf file with 7 pages double sided.

                                    Acrobat Pro on my mac prints page 1 of the second copy on the back side of page 7 of the first copy. This is wrong.

                                    Other pdf viewer on my mac, and Acrobat Pro on my Windows laptop connected to the same printer prints correctly. The back side of page 7 of the first copy is blank. Page 1 of the second copy starts on a new sheet of paper.

                                    Printer: Canon MB5320 with most recent driver.

                                    Adobe Acrobat 11.0.20

                                    Mac OS 10.12.4

                                    • Page numbering in Excel

                                      While in an Excel workbook, I want to print/convert multiple worksheets to PDF. The page numbering does NOT need to be a master count of all worksheets. If worksheet one is two pages, it should be 1 of 2 and 2 of 2. If worksheet two is three pages, it should be 1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3. NOT 3 of 5, 4 of 5, 5 of 5.

                                      Older versions of Acrobat worked seamlessly. I have tried many workarounds and have not found anything that works. I have called Adobe Tech Support and have had no luck.

                                        • Installing a new printer while Acrobat or Reader is open and then trying to print to it sends it to the wrong printer

                                          After installing a printer while Adobe Acrobat and/or Reader is already open and has a PDF open, attempting to print to it prints to a different printer, even though the new printer appears in the list. Acrobat/Reader must be closed and reopened in order to print to the new printer.

                                          Steps to reproduce:
                                          1) Open Acrobat or Reader.
                                          2) Open a PDF
                                          3) Install a new printer
                                          4) Attempt to print the PDF to the newly installed printer (it appears in the list of printers)
                                          5) The PDF prints to a different printer.
