  1. Virtual Printer for Mac - So you can print customised page sizes A1 A2 etc from all software

    Virtual Printer for Mac
    So you can print customised page sizes A1 A2 etc from all software
    Used to be a feature but has been removed.
    is still a feature on PC.
    Other apps are available such as PDF Printer from the App Store that do this.

    Need to either have Adobe PDF appear as a printer, or be able to adjust settings under the create pdf button, before it creates the pdf.

    currently you can only create a pdf that matches the same size as the document. so you can't print an A4 document onto an A3, A2, A1…

  3. shrink or resize the print dialog box, and make it scrollwheel responsive

    Needless to say, I print a lot from Acrobat. It bugs me constantly that when the print dialog comes up, it's too big to fit entirely on the screen. The actual "print" button is off screen on the bottom, and requires scrolling down to be able to click it. That should not be the case. Even more annoying is the fact that the dialog itself, although it has a scroll bar, is not responsive to my scrollwheel mouse. It absolutely should be.

  4. Portfolio Printing

    When printing a portfolio, the document print in the order they are named. Could you create an option for the portfolio to print in the order the files are in the portfolio? We use Adobe Acrobat for all our bulk printing tasks, and we have to rename the files to make sure they print in order.

    b) I then locate and click on the "print" option.

  6. cannot print single pages when in comparison mode

    Cannot print single pages when in comparison mode; only prints the summary page. It would be helpful to print single pages so I have a record of what still needs to be fixed in my document, since you cannot save the newer doc version as a separate document with notes intact. At least I would have a hardcopy to refer to.

  7. Distiller does not show all presets and not sorted

    I have several settings/presets saved in the folder:

    /Users/saschabucher/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PDF/Settings

    But only some of them are showing up in the Distiller settings dropdown where you can set the preset. The ones showing up are not even in the alphabetic order. This is maybe related to the issue in InDesign where the script panel is also not anymore ordered.

    This is may just cased by OSX High Sierra and SSD.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback.
    For Distiller setting dropdown not in alphabetic order we have logged a bug in our database.
    And Setting which are not showing in dropdown this is not reproducible at our end. Can you please try reinstalling and updating Acrobat if its not updated to latest version? Let us know if this issue is still there.

    Best Regards!

  8. Print marked up compared pages / Automatically compare pages using labels

    Compare Files shows a very nice, side-by-side, comparison with markups showing where the changes are at. I would like to print exactly what I'm seeing there (page content and markups) but when I try to print it wants to print a summary page as page 1, and/or, a very busy looking page with labels on the side pointing to changes within the page. I could print the screen, but that's not ideal.

    Also, it would be nice to automatically compare pages by page label. For example, I have a 200 page document, and somebody provides me with an 8 page…

  9. designer's pdf inspector

    It would be great to have a pdf inspection mode to easily select items in the pdf and get printing specs on it like the ink type (pms, cmyk) and color used (pms 281, C100M60Y0K6), the font, the resolution of an image as dpi at the current used size, etc.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. We have recorded it in our database.

    However,Before printing you can check default value through:
    Go to ‘PrintProduction>outputPreview’
    Select ObjectInspector from preview drop down and you can check default value.
    Hope this will serve you purpose.
    Please keep updating.

    Best Regards!

  10. Inability to file pdf files in alphabetical order

    I have recently upgraded my Mac operating system to Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Since doing this, I am unable to use the Mac Finder in alphabetical order to drag and drop / file pdf's from Adobe Acrobat Pro onto my Mac flash storage (the folders are no longer in alphabetical order and are displayed in a random mixed order). The same applies when you print to pdf and then try and file on Finder.

    I would note that Finder itself accessed directly (i.e. not through Adobe) works as it is designed to and you can select any of…

    Hi,
    How files/folder are sorted in any finder window is solely the business of your operating system and not Actobat. Are you facing this just with Adobe PDFs?

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  18. "Print as Handouts" feature

    A "Print as Handouts" feature similar to the 2x6 feature in Microsoft PowerPoint. It is common for lecture slides to be released as single slide per page pdf documents, rather than the original PPT file. Because of this, you can only choose to print a number of pages per page (slides per page) in Adobe Acrobat but there is no option, like in powerpoint, for handouts (that is, have 3 slides/pages on the left side of a sheet and 3 boxes to the right that are blank with ruled lines on it for taking notes).

    Open a file in a Mac OS application.
    Click the PDF button and choose Save As Adobe PDF.
    Choose the Adobe PDF Settings and click Continue.
    Type a name for your file, and click Save.

  20. 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.
