  1. OCR DISTILLER

    Please provide an additional app similar to Acrobat Distiller but for OCR so it can become a drag and drop type of function for batch files.

  2. Re-set support staff mind set, with new paradigm of training.

    My experience with Adobe’s support staff has been frustrating. Often, no matter how carefully I ask, there appears to be poor understanding of my question. And the staff seems to produce formulaic responses, imstead of specifically addressing my issues. For example:

    I have repeatedly asked what computer configurations can best and most quickly handle time-consuming Adobe Acrobat tasks: OCR, placing duplicate buttons on multiple pages, etc.

    I’ve specifically asked whether more RAM, or multicore, or other configurations would speed up OCR of scanned documents.

    Adobe has not yet provided a coherent response to the above question.

    Many of the support…

    Hi,
    We need some information to understand and resolve this issue:
    - Acrobat version
    - Scanner details
    - Scan settings
    - Number of pages scan
    - Does it happen for small files also or only for these bulk scanned files.

    Thanks.

  7. Make field wider for correcting scanned text

    When viewing and correcting scanned text, the field is so small as to not include the whole word. Also, it would be much easier to just retype the correct text directly in the document

  9. 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.

  10. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Crashing

    When I open up a document on my Macbook which has been scanned in using Adobe Scan (on my phone) then Adobe crashes. Mostly it does this before I can save the files to local disk. Once on local disk, it opens them OK.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting your concern.
    As of now, Adobe scan app is not implemented for Windows. We will update you if its done in near future.
    Thanks.

  13. 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.

    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.

    Thanks.

  14. Machine Learning Form Analysis

    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.

    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.

    Thanks.

  16. 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.

  17. 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:

  18. 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…

  19. Please add Bengali language support for OCR

    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.
