  3. It would be very nice to be able to append to documents already saved to your computer as you can with Nuance by using print to Nuance and a

    Pls provide us with the ability to Print to Adobe and append to rather then overwrite an existing file. Append to front or back of file instead of having to save each file and then open them all in adobe and merge them.

  4. Over an hour and Acrobat still won't print my PDF

    I've been trying to get a PDF to print from Acrobat Pro for over an hour. I don't have a large number of fonts installed, so that's not it. It's not that there's something wrong with the PDF; it opens in Photoshop and prints from Safari with no problem. Why the, is Acrobat hanging forever?

  6. Print as PDF from Adobe Acrobat on Mac

    I know there is an option to "Save as PDF". However, sometimes, you don't want to "Save as PDF". You may want to "Print as PDF" (as it is in windows).

    These 2 are different since "saving as PDF" simply saves the page as it is while "Printing as PDF" gives one the flexibility of saving as booklet, multiple pages e.t.c.

    Also, "printing as PDF" enables one to save PDF forms that are not traditionally enabled for saving.

    All these are important and standard features on the Windows version of the software.

  7. PDF Distiller to work with internal encyrpted documents

    We have internally developed, encrypted PDF forms that we own the intellectual property for. We make these available to internal users to generate publicly distributed documents where company private data has been removed via a control on the page. At present PDF Distiller complains that it cannot re-author an encrypted file. But if we own the encrypted file, there should be a way to internally sign this document for use amongst our users without needing to release the encryption password to our users. There are elements within the form that even our users are not permitted to alter, hence the…

  8. Print error with grayscale bitmapped files using "print in grayscale (black and white)"

    Discovered a printing error in Acrobat Pro DC. Converted a PDF created in Word using Illustrator to CMYK and just to Black and White. Most of the art is vector or text, however the logos are bitmaps. I copied them into photoshop, converted to grayscale, and pasted them back into Illustrator and saved the file as a high resolution PDF. When printing in Acrobat Pro DC (2019.010.20099) to our Minolta Bizhunb C308, using the function of "Print in grayscale (black and white)" the bitmaps are printed in inverse. File prints correctly without selecting "Print in grayscale (black and white)". Using…

  9. Adjust Page Size

    The Page Size on a PDF is 10.00 x 7.5 in but I am trying to print to 11 x 8.5 in. The printer is requesting 16k paper which I don't have. When I click ignore then it cuts off part of the document.

  12. print secured PDF fails in latest Acobat Pro build

    New issue with Acrobat Pro DC 2019.010.20098.
    I am on Mac Mojave, 16.16.7
    Attempting to print a college transcript from Parchment, a Secured PDF. Document Properties, Security tab says Printing should be allowed, but printing fails with "There were no pages selected to print" - see attached screenshot. My office mate has version 2019.010.20071 and can print this document no problem. This is the second bug I have found in this build.

  13. print multiple docs at once

    I would like to be able to select all open docs for printing and have them print separately.
    The workaround is to combine the docs, but when printing two-sided, the documents end up with page one of one section on the back of the last page of another section. I need these to print out as individual sections.
    Instead of having to combine, please create this as a print option - "print all open docs."

  14. Print Current View

    Either allow print settings to be included in the Quick Tools at the top, or move "Print Current View" as a choice under Pages to Print without having to go to More Options first. I spend a lot of time printing details from PDFs and it takes three extra steps, each time. Also, Print Current View doesn't quite match with the display on the print settings.

  15. Certain characters not searchable in PDF

    In a PDF file created from FrameMaker 2017 by printing a book to a file with Adobe Printer (using the standard job options) and then distilling a .ps file, certain Kanji characters in Meiryo font are not searchable. However, the same characters in MS Gothic font are searchable.

    In the attached PDF file, for example, there are 5 occurrences of character string 入力. 2 of them are Meiryo font (highlighted in yellow) and 3 of them are MS Gothic font (highlighted in pink).

    You cannot find 入力 in yellow (Meiryo) but you can find them in MS Gothic (pink).

    However,…

  16. Booklet Margins Too Wide

    When I print my pdf file as a booklet (8.5 x 11 folded) in Acrobat Pro 2017 on a Mac, the margins are much wider than I'd like them to be - they are not printing as they are in the file - they are much thicker, with more white space around the text. What can I do to fix this? Thank you!

  17. I'm using Acrobat Pro DC printing on HP OfficeJet Pro 8710. It prints 2-sided on the Short-Edge binding even if Long-Edge is selected.

    Suddenly within the last few days, if I print from my Acrobat Pro DC to my HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 printer, it only prints two-sided PDF documents on the Short-Edge binding even if Long-Edge binding 2-sided printing mode was selected. Was there a recent s/w update with bug that's causing this phenomenon? I use 2-sided printing quite a bit and this is really a huge problem for me!

  18. Fix the Adobe on Mac Double-Sided Bug

    On some HP printers, if the user prints double-sided, the pages are all offset by an initial blank side. Thus the first sheet gets only page 1, then sheet 2 gets pages 2 and 3, and so on ...

    This turns out to be an interactive fault where in the printer believes that there is a cover sheet and it is blank.

    The remedy is simple, but tedious since it must be repeated every time one prints.

    Open PRINT
    Click on <Printer> at the bottom of the dialog box
    Ignore the warning and continue.
    Make sure "Show Details" is open. …

  19. crash

    I just upgraded to Adobe Pro last week and today whenever I open a PDF it crashes after a few seconds. I also am not able to print to a PDF and it says that my account is not activated, but when I check everything looks right.
    I tried all the troubleshooting and nothing has worked.

  20. Please please please make Overprint Preview a default!

    As the world continues to use PDFs for EVERYthing, it is so so important that people are aware of Overprint Preview. However, most people don't know it even exists in their page display preferenc. If you don't have this turned on things that are set to overprint will show as if they are not overprinting (mostly on the customer's end). Because the default of Acrobat is not to have Overprint Preview turned on, customers don't realize the problem. In the printing industry this is one of the biggest stumbling stones (boulders) we come across. That and fonts, of course.
