Need to recognize Arabic text from scanned images.77 votes
Thanks for raising a feature request. We have taken a note of it and would let you know whenever we add this support.
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 DC look like it is a push button icon based program for a PC? I have nothing that uses touch screen or similar and I really detest programs FULL of hundreds of ICONS everywhere. XI at least was simpler to get things done without wasting 1. Screen space 2. multiple page clicks to get to the final process of actually scanning something.

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.13 votes
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.6 votes
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.4 votes
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.4 votes
With over 250 million speakers, Bengali is the seventh most spoken native language in the world. Unfortunately there is no Bengali language support for OCR in Adobe Acrobat Pro. It would be extremely helpful for Bengali language community if Bengali is added in OCR. Thank you.3 votes
Adobe Acrobat used to have a feature to darken text. What happened?3 votes
You can change color of text using Edit PDF tool.
If this is something different, can you please elaborate the issue and how you used to do it earlier.
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 up to our knowledge). Please let us know, if there is any way to automate the OCR process (we come with a document scan, you give us the OCRed PDF or XML etc.).

You can do this by creating an action in Acrobat(if you are using Desktop).
Go to Actions Wizard → New Action → Recognize Text → Recognize Text using OCR → Click “→” arrow →
Specify OCR settings and Save.
Now whenever you have to run OCR on any number of files/folders, just run this action.
Hope it will help you.
Have a single deskew tool using handle to rotate or enter degrees to get the best results3 votes
Thanks for reporting your concern. As of now there is no such option. I will share this idea with the team.
We will get back to you if there is any update.
After OCR recognition provide a facility not just for correcting the text, but for meta-data labeling of fields and regions. This data would make machine-learned document management much more effective.
For example, the automated extraction of data from Insurance company EOBs. You might argue, of course, that this is not in Adobe's balliwick, but I'd argue that this is a natural addition to your commenting tools.3 votes
Thanks for reporting your concern.
For the first question, ability to correct OCRed text. This functionality is already there. Go to Tools> Enhance scan> Recognize text> Correct Recognize text
For the 2nd query I will raise a feature request for you. We will look into this and inform you if there is nay update.
Many scanners are not duplex. Thus, users scan odd pages (1, 3, 5, etc.) first then save the file. Next, users turn the stack over to scan even pages (n, n-2, n-4, etc.) then save the file. The problem comes when trying to combine in sequential order. Please create a tool that simply selects odd page file, then reverse even page file, then combines in proper order.3 votes
We already have an option to do this.
While scanning go to scan settings page and select “Both sides” option.
If your scanned is not duplex, it will scan front sides of all pages and ask you to scan reverse sides.
Now reverse the pages and click ‘Ok’. It will automatically arrange your documents.
Hope it will resolve your query. Please try and confirm.
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.

Is this a bug or a feature? :-)2 votes
OCR Fails & Cursor for Select is about five inches (5") -- about 8 legal lines in height. Can't select one line or even multiple lines.
Even after using "Recognize Text" and "Correct Recognized Text" Adobe DC does not recognize the text. Worse, the Select tool or highlighter is about 5 inches -- impossible to select any one line or word.2 votes
We never see this kind of problem.
Can you please provide following information to help us identify and resolve the issue ASAP:
- Acrobat version you are using
- Files where you are facing this issue(Both Original and OCRed)
- Screenshot with problem
crashes when scaning multiple pages2 votes
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!2 votes
When I try to scan & create a new PDF file, the program crashes after scanning 9 times out of 10. The only reliable way to scan and create a PDF is to combine it with a blank PDF file.
I'll take Acrobat XI over this time consuming software any day. Unless Adobe is willing to repay me for time lost!2 votes
Sorry for the issue you are facing.
Can you please share some information to help identify and resolve the issue ASAP:
- Acrobat version you are using
- OS version
- Steps you are using to scan
- Please share the crash dumps
To create crash logs on Win platform please follow these steps.
1. Retry the scenario where Acrobat crashes
2. Do not close the pop-up when Acrobat crash
3. Open Task manager
4. Right click on “Acrobat.exe *32” process and select ‘Create Dump file’
5. It will create a log file in temp folder. (Path will be displayed on pop-up comes when logs created). You can also check this under
Open Run process (Win+R)
Logs file will be available here with name “Acrobat.DMP” or “Acrobat(n).DMP” if there are other Acrobat dumps exist.
Come on guys it's 2017! ;)2 votes
Thanks for reporting your concern.
Raising a feature request for you. We will get back to you once this request is prioritized and implemented.
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.2 votes
I used to be able to clean up my scanned documents by clicking the "spots" and deleting. Now I am unable to do this.
I was able to do this in the past. The most recent update must have removed the ability. I would select the "spot" or the edge of the page where the document feeder skewed the page in the scanner, then hit delete. Now I am unable to do this. I want to be able to present clean documents.2 votes
If I am not wrong you are using edit functionality of Acrobat. There you can select the edge or small bounding ox and delete it if it is not required.
If not please use Edit tool.
If you are facing any issue on any file please share the files.
