  2. Scanning Issues

    During a recent update the ability to scan the backside of documents is gone. There used to be 3 options after a scan was complete; Scan Compete, Scan More, Scan Reverse. Scan reverse would allow you to run the back pages though and the program would auto-sort those pages in reverse order. Now you don't have that option and it only allows to Scan More and then you have to manually move the pages where you need them.

  5. As a user who works with engineering drawings, I need OCR for wider / panorama images.

    As of today, it is not possible to run OCR for wider images. Please re-consider this limitation.

    This is also a topic in the support community.

  6. Partial OCR is dumped from cropped image after re-running OCR on the remaining image

    In order to run OCR for wider images, some users suggested a workaround to crop the image, run OCR for the first half, then restore the image to the original size, crop again the second half, then run OCR again and finally restore the image to its orignal size.

    There are two bugs with this approach:
    1) It is only possible to restore the image to its original size when using the option "Searchable Image (Exact)".
    2) After re-running the OCR for the second half of the file, the OCR for the first half is dumped.

    This is also a…

  9. OCR character conversion

    Adobe does not convert OCR characters when converting a PDF to a Word document. This is an important feature to many people. Other PDF software offers this. Adobe needs to realize the importance of this feature that has been offered for over a decade by other software companies.

    As Abbyy states "Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, is a technology that enables you to convert different types of documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files or images captured by a digital camera into editable and searchable data."

    If Abbyy can do it, why can't Adobe? I will have to use…

  10. download all scanned files fails

    Idea: make it work as documented. So far all my attempts to download ALL my adobe scan scans to my computer fail. Variously too many files to zip (I do NOT want them zipped I want them downloaded as is) and when zipped to a binder .zip file then the download simply fails.
    I have a report due and this is screwing me up completely. I had hoped I could rely on these programs, but it is letting me down big time. Two hours so far and a simple download of scans fails at every turn. Am I epxected to…

  11. Two-page Book Scans

    It would be great if there was an automated tool for working with scans of books showing two pages across. If the system could automatically cut scans in half (or even detect where the centerline of the scan is) and create two pages out of each image it would be an awesome addition to Acrobat.

  12. Bug: OCR Correct Recognized Text changes "•" to "€" upon save

    There is an issue with the "Review recognized text" feature. It fails to properly update the OCR text when a correction is made. It erroneously replaces the special character "•" with "€" upon clicking Accept. So for example, the slogan "Cleaner Air • Safer Roads" will be saved incorrectly as "Cleaner Air € Safer Roads". I'll happily provide the example document via email if requested.

    I'm running MacOS MacOS Big Sur Version 11.0 Beta (20A5384c) and Acrobat Pro DC Version 2020.012.20048

  14. Please add Adobe Scan to Surface Pro (X)

    Dear Adobe team, please add adobe scan to Microsoft Surface Pro (X).

    At the moment, in order to use Adobe scan, you need to use your cell phone and then upload the scan to the cloud.

    On the one hand this is very time consuming, on the other hand it requires an active internet connection, which cannot always be guaranteed, especially when you are not at home.

    With an integration of Adobe Scan on Surface Pro (X), you could make very fast professional scans offline.

    I know that you have added Adobe Scan to the iPad, which could be compared…

  18. Bug - difficulty with integration of Brother Printer/Scanner interface with Acrobat for scanning.

    Using iMac running Catalina OS, latest update and Brother MFCL3770CDW. When I create a document from scanner in Acrobat, the scan command triggers the Mac scanner interface. While black & white scanning works fine, there is a consistent error message when attempting to scan in color. The message is that the color profile chosen is not supported. Since I cannot choose the color profile, I am not sure what to do about this. It is a major headache.
