  1. Please add the ability to select an application-level default size. Having to select "Actual size" is not good.

    I imagine if the pdf file was created from another application, and was set to "Fit" this print setting carried over to Adobe. If so, there needs to be a way to reset default print setting from print dialog box to change to "Actual." I don't know if if the original file was set to that or not as I don't have it but please look into this. It's very important issue.

    Thank you,

    Sandy

  2. cannot print keep getting Plug-in Failure. No way to figure it out. This sucks.

  3. Warn when printing out of order page sequence

    I print hundreds of pages every month from a single PDF file, but I print some two-sided and the others one-sided. For example, I print pages 3,4,6,7,10-14,20,21,25-30. Today, I accidentally typed "118-12" instead of 120. But Acrobat just prints something. I'm not sure what because I cancelled the print job.

    Acrobat should analyze the page sequence and warn if it's out of order. I wouldn't want it warn me on the first example because it still makes sense, but if I print that sequence and then "32-3", it should stop, especially since it doesn't even make sense to print pages…

  4. 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…

  5. Distiller’s font handling genrates errors not honoured by ‘stopped’

    Distiller XI Pro 11.0.20 (28/03/2017), and many previous versions, crash “… /Font resourceforall”. Try the following code:

    %!PS
    (*) {

    /FontName exch def  FontName =   {FontName cvn 48 selectfont} stopped pop
    

    } 65535 string /Font resourceforall

    crashes with:

    %%[ Error: invalidaccess; OffendingCommand: def ]%%

    without the “{…} stopped” construct it crashes with:

    NanumPen
    %%[ Error: invalidfont; OffendingCommand: findfont; ErrorInfo: CharOffsets –
    and some non-ASCII characters.

    This problem started in about 2013, after an ‘upgrade’ to the Mac OS somehow altered something about fonts. Please could Distiller’s font handling be improved, even if only to honour ‘stopped’.

    (There are about 2½k…

  6. File not viewing correctly in Acrobat XI

    When opening certain pdf files, the screen preview is not correct. The background "disappears". Sometimes though, the background will still print but sometimes it does not. I am on Mac in system Sierra and have tried these files on multiple computers including a pc, with extensions off etc. and always that same result. What I see is not what I get. If I place the pdf file in InDesign it will preview correctly and also export correctly so something InDesign does corrects the problem. I am attaching a file to demonstrate the issue.

  7. Print to PDF on a Mac

    PRINT TO PDF
    I dont want a save PDF. I need to print to pdf. There are XML based documents that are NOT able to be saved to a PDF and I need to be able to mark them up, annotate, make notes.

    I pay $600/yr for your suite and you can't manage to keep features consistent across platforms?

    You have it for PC's, but not for Mac? The platform preferred by most creatives worldwide?

  8. Make print options available when converting powerpoint to pdf

    Hello,

    Our company recently moved to SharePoint and we have our libraries synced to our Adobe Acrobat app. My process beforehand was typically to open the PPT I wanted to convert to PDF, and select print to pdf. This would allow me to select slides per page and other such features.

    Now my process is to navigate to the PPT i wish to convert, click on it, and select "Create PDF." (image1) This defaults to 1 page per slide and does not allow any such customization. Clicking on "Advanced Settings" doesn't include print options. (image2)

    Clicking "Create", creates the PDF…

  9. Increasing the font of sticky notes when printing

    I have PDFs slides which I use for presentation(s). I have added sticky notes to the document for my reference. However, I find it hard to read the pre-defined font when printing these along with my slides on one page for utility and preparation. I would like the flexibility of adjusting this font as I am finding it hard to reach in such small lettering/fonts after printing.

  12. Print by PDF Page source

    After updating Mac os to Big Sur, the program does not print documents by page source. When printing a mixed-size document Adobe is only printing by the Legal size and not printing the document in its original format. Print by PDF page source is checked and Adobe worked until the update.

  16. Multi-tasking when printing

    I have noticed that with the version I have now (2020.013.20066), That I cannot print one document and the move to the next tab to print, edit or manage that document at all. While the printing is active, one is basically locked out from the app until the printing is complete.

    This seems pretty odd as the app is obviously made to multi-task, as is the OS (in my case Windows 10) and printer (queue). Whether this has been done on purpose, or is a bug, I am not sure, so you will have to decide for yourselves if this…

  17. Get rid of the artifacts in Distiller PDF's

    PDF's created with Acrobat & Distiller leave unwanted artifacts that can be seen in most PDF preview apps, specially email programs & also Reader. This prevents our customers from approving our PDF's. However, PDF's created from Illustrator do NOT have these visible artifacts. Our work flow is built around Distiller to create proofing PDF's & this is a PITA to do from Illustrator. In the attached file keylines of the logo can be seen thru the product

  18. Allow Duplex Printing for Duplex enabled Printers from DC

    I can print in duplex from my Brother MFC-J835DW printer when printing from every other program I can think of and Adobe on the web, the fact that I cannot from Adobe DC when I pay to use this software? Get with it and join the 21st century, I ESPECIALLY want duplex capability in ADOBE as most large files and forms that require printing are typically shared as pdf files and I certainly don't want to be wasteful or kill excess trees, but it would certainly appear this isn't a concern of Adobe, noted guess it is time to look…

  20. Better control over printing booklets and signatures and imposing pages

    I have a 400 pages pdf I want to print and bind myself using ten sheets in each signature. It is a big pain ********** when I have to print 20 pages at a time using the print booklet option.
    Can not you create an option to make our lifes easier? I could choose and booklet option, number of pages per signature and happily wait for the printer to finish.
