    • It would be great if Acrobat was multi=threaded. I routinely have to OCR 4000 page documents which almost always fail and take hours

      Acrobat needs to be multithreaded. I have a top of the line machine with 32g of ram and an I7-6700k processor an m2 SSD, yet am unable to successfully run OCR on a 4000 page document without splitting it up into 250-500page chunks, which is cumbersome. Even then, acrobat will only use 12% of my resources.

      • After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature

        After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature. OCR has errors. Also, would like to have the option to tell OCR to search but selectively remove symbols from OCR responses. many documents have no "~" or "|" (shift backslash) also would like to eliminate the search for British pound symbol. The user would then selectively help the OCR to eliminate some responses.

        • Adobe Acrobat Pro XI vs. Adobe Acrobat DC

          Can we get the Acrobat XI version of the Scanning stuff back? This multiple page setup in order to get to scanning a document is horrendous. When you update things, try to avoid bloating them into more steps, more bells and whistles that are just eye candy and do little to enhance anything....I like when we go update and find out that the newer version has less garbage on it, less junk added to it for overall performance gain instead of the industry standard of new versions = more bloated programming = less productivity and horrible GUI - Why does…

            • Review recognized text fails to fix ocr text and alters visible text

              There are several issues with the "Review recognized text" feature. It fails to update the ocr text when a correction is made. It replaces the selected visible characters with nonsense ones.
              After pressing the "close" button all of the recognized text becomes invisible.
              To see this problem open the attached file and open the "correct recognized text" feature. Select "Review recognized text" and double-click on the word "TRAINMASTER" in the upper left of the page. It will not allow you to manually correct this.

              I'm using Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise and Acrobat Pro DC version 15.17.20050.61080

                • OCR Japanese (maybe other language, too)

                  This is a bug report.

                  In macOS,
                  'language' of application and OCR language have to be the same.
                  Otherwise it won't work.

                  In Windows,
                  this bug doesn't exist.

                  Details are discussed as following.

                  • Bug: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC for which I pay money does not work properly i.e. PDFs that DO HAVE at least two layers are never shown.

                    Scanned PDFs that are made searchable and editable DO HAVE at least two layers, but my Adobe Acrobat Pro DC does not show the layers when I click on the layers icon. I really want to talk to a human being of the Adobe REAL support team and have this issue fixed - I tried the chatting - it is useless!!! Please give me the opportunity to talk to a real ADOBE support person!!! I pay a lot of money every month and this issue is going on since quite a while!!! I have attached an example of a file…

                    • Option to eliminate words with mixed number and letters in OCR

                      Provide a check off that functions to prevent the OCR from mixing numbers and symbols in words.
                      For example: Custodian should not be read Cu&t0d1an - only letters should be recognized in words.

                      • OCR in 2 languages. I index everything. Currently I have to hold two copies of files containing (for example) Chinese and English.

                        OCR in 2 languages. I index everything. Currently I have to hold two copies of files containing (for example) Chinese and English. A related issue is papers with special symbols. Lots of technical papers in English use Greek-letter symbols. Acrobat does an amazingly good job at reading Classical Chinese characters (slow, but worth the wait). If it can handle that, it ought to be able to handle multiple alphabets.

                        • Adobe Standard

                          Like the Adobe Standard, could scan more than one page of documents
                          now I have to scan 1 page at a time loading and reloading, time is money..why change something that works. Don't understand taking that feature out of the software. Please bring it back, I'll have to find another program that will do this.
