  1. correct PDF/X3:2002 Standard Settings

    Whatever external profile is used, when the standard setting PDF/X-3:2002 is chosen, the missleading/wrong information „Kennung der Ausgabevorschau: FOGRA27“ and ¸Registrierung: http://www.color.org is written in the pdf-file. Sometimes printers are irritated by the missleading/wrong information. The ECI-consortium recommends to leave the information blank. Please change the basic setting according to the wish from ECI.

  3. Change default print options

    It would be great to change the default on the what to print option. I have an application where I need to set the default to "print current page", but it won't allow me to make a permanent change.

  4. Print to PDF

    Dear Adobe team.
    I'd like to mention that for some reason, when I am on any app and I want to print as PDF, the quality of the file when I choose Microsoft Print to PDF is much better than when I choose Adobe PDF printer... That's very strange to me, given that as long as I know, you are the creators of this standard... Same thing happened when I had a mac. The built in PDF printer was much better than the Adobe one. I never went deep into settings to try to fine tune it so that I…

  5. Bug... Print to File is always checked.

    Computer OS: Windows 7 Pro
    Acrobat Version: Adobe Acrobat DC (18.011.20058)

    Whenever I try to print from Adobe Acrobat, it ask me to save a file as a .prn.

    So I go to the Advance Settings from the Print Window to uncheck "Print to File" option and then close the Advance Settings window. However if I try to print it will ask me to save the file as a .prn and when I click on the Advance again to go to the Advance Settings, the "Print to File" option is checked again.

    In other words the "Print to File" option…

  7. Acrobat Pro/Standard PDF Printing.

    Hi Adobe,

    Shame this isn't a bug bounty or I could possibly get some pennies!

    In short, PDFs created in older versions of Adobe do not work with the most recent edition you guys have released.

    A client of ours was missing text when printing, after months of painful driver changes etc, we had found a resolution.

    Any user that creates a PDF in older Adobe software, will not be able to have a colleague print all text/docs/stamps/markups/borders/lines on a PDF within Acrobat. Only downgrading the user to an older unsecure, unsupport Adobe product works.

    Adobe Reader 11.x/11.x.21 - Installing…

  9. "Show Overprinting" not working consistently

    Bug report re Output Preview/Color Warnings/Show Overprinting

    When 'Show Overprinting' is toggled on it displays the results in the selected colour on the page being viewed. However, when you navigate to the next page frequently no results are displayed. When you navigate through the rest of the document, results are sometimes displayed, often not.

    The only way to get 'Show Overprinting' to display consistently and correctly is to toggle it off and back on for every single page.

    Hi Toda,

    You can use “Create Multiple Files” option in Create PDF Tool in Acrobat for creating individual PDF for each file in a folder.

    Follow these steps:
    1. Make sure you have latest version of Acrobat
    2. Click on “Tools” tab
    3. Click on “Create PDF” icon. It’s usually the first one.
    4. Select “Multiple Files” and check “Create Multiple PDF Files”
    5. Click “Next”
    6. Click on “Add Files” drop down and select “Add Folder”
    7. Browse to your input files and Click “OK”
    8. Select destination folder and Click “OK”

    Please let us know if this solves your issue.

    Regards,
    Ritesh

    BE able to save multiple subsections and bookmarked Sections as a PDF rather than the whole document when PRINT action does not allow subsections to be saved through printer dialogue. Going to save as just saves the whole document again. NOT the selected Subsection or multiple pages.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback.
    We have recorded it as a feature request in our database.
    However saving multiple pages to PDF option is there. You can give selected pages in ‘Pages’ option on print dialog.

    Best Regards!

  16. Every single pdf document I print ends up giving me a message at the printer (Canon) to check the page size because it's custom.

    Every pdf document I send to my MFD (Canon) does not automatically print. It sends a message to pick paper size because it's a custom size. However, it is NEVER a custom size, it's always 8-1/2 x 11. All the settings in my document say to print to 8-1/2 x 11, I've tried shrink and fit and still, I keep getting the message at the printer and have to choose 8-1/2 x 11. Really annoying.

  17. Print to .pdf from word 2013 keeps changing paper size from a4 to 8.5”x11”

    Currently have Adobe Acrobat installed on my university machine and am using Word 2013 to compile my thesis chapters and figures (.emf and .png files). However when I either use the ‘create pdf’ ribbon option using press quality settings (adjusted to a4 paper size) I end up with a .pdf with 8.5 x 11 in size. This happens also when printing via Adobe PDF option through word.

  18. White Box error in printed 3D views

    We are noticing an error in prints of 3D space from Adobe DC in either Windows 7 or Windows 10. When you print views, sometimes there’s a “White Box” in the middle of the view no matter which medium you print through/to (i.e. physical printer, Adobe PDF, Word Doc, OneNote, etc.).

    I attached an example PDF where this behavior can be seen. The original model is included as an attachment in the PDF. The information attached does not have any restrictions. The information in the PDF is correct until you print it.

    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…

  20. 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!
