      • Unable to change Acrobat DC default settings

        Acrobat DC doesn't remember settings of action "Create PDF file from scanner", in Output: i have to manually select "Multiple files" instead of the default "One File",
        and when saving files at the end of the scan, i have each time to change the default acrobat directory.

                • Acrobat DC hangs when running actions unattended

                  Created an action to process a folder of PDFs with OCR - very basic action. Runs fine when i am at my computer working on other things with Acrobat DC churning away in the background. But if I step away, the action will just grid to a halt and not make progress until I return to my computer. So I cannot let this run overnight. Very disappointed as the OCR and invisible text layer placement in the newest Acrobat is really well done, but the program is now worthless if I cannot let it run unattended.

                  • On both printers, the scanning fails to scan both sides, even though settings are for both sides scanning

                    Bug report- even when set for both sides scanning, scanning occurs on only one side. This occurs on both of my printers.

                    • Scan to Acrobat Pro DC not working

                      I'm currently unable to scan to Acrobat: when I attempt to create a PDF from scan, my scanner and Acrobat go through the whole process, and at the point where the scan should be appearing in Acrobat, I'm returned to the Scan page of Acrobat with no file created. Scanning to Photoshop works fine, so it's not my scanner. I'm on macOS Sierra, with the most recent release of DC.

                          • OCR automation (cloud API or SDK)

                            As a preprocessing step for our document analysis technology, we need to OCR hundreds of document scans. Since we need not only the recognized text, but also font information and text position, your OCR technology as integrated into the Acrobat DC provides the best quality for our needs, but unfortunately, there seems to be absolutely no possibility to automate the OCR process? Your mobile app seems to access some cloud api, since there you can make a picture with your phone and get the OCRed PDF within seconds from the Adobe servers, but the API is not public (at least…

                            • Fix requested: Scanning with HP Pagewide MFP 577dw only allows native interface

                              Adobe only allows the use of the native interface for the HP Pagewide MFP 577dw. The HP Native Interface is clunky, won't save default settings, and has trouble scanning multipage with automatic document feeder. Adobe worked flawlessly with previous printer. Can you please fix? Thanks!

                                  • Shortcut for Create PDF from Scan

                                    Create shortcut on Home page to "Create PDF from Scan". A lot of users primarily use Acrobat to create pdfs from paper. It shouldn't take 4 mouse clicks to get this done. Also, there is now no way to use keyboard shortcuts to effect a scan. Alt-F-R-S is as far as one can go because the new blue Scan button does not have a keyboard shortcut.

                                    • Deskew only works with compression on

                                      I'm trying to deskew a PDF in Acrobat Pro DC, but it will only work when compression is on at the 3rd lowest setting.
                                      When trying to go higher or turn compression off the deskew fails.

                                      PDF is attached and also here:

                                      Acrobat Pro DC v. 2017.012.20098

                                      Is this a bug or a feature? :-)

                                      • Acrobat Pro XI crashes during scan

                                        A patch is urgently needed for Adobe Acrobat Pro XI and DC to overcome Windows' misbehavior vs. Acrobat after the latest update. Acrobat crashes during scan under Windows 10 latest update, often when one scans the first page, but sometimes only after one page or maximum two. I verified that by installing a fresh Windows 10 Enterprise, checked that Acrobat works; then Windows 10 was updated to the latest version and Acrobat scan stopped working on TWO different computers.

                                        • Scan fails when scanning from "Configure Predefined Settings" dialogue.

                                          If I press the [big blue scan button] from the "Configure Predefined Settings for:" dialogue, the scan fails, if I have modified the preset [without saving] before scanning.

                                          If I save the modified settings, then scan from the previous page ["use a predefined scan setting"], it works fine. There are similar issues on the "Known Issues" page, but not quite the same as this. I'm using Windows10 64bit Canon TWAIN driver for Canon DR-C225 scanner. All software upo to date. Thanks in advance!
