  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Straighten

    A button to straighten a scanned document would be so useful, particularly for anyone using a document feeder to scan. Currently, if you go to edit the document, it will straighten the pages for you, but it will sometimes convert handwritten notes into a font and change their appearance, which isn't ideal for signatures, for example. So, a separate option to straighten the document would be life changing for me at work.

  7. Bug: Saving a scanned document

    I cannot save a scanned document. When I click on "save as" a blank box opens up. Nothing else happens. This just started today. I was happily scanning and saving yesterday with no problem.

    Anyone know what's wrong ? AND the FIX?

  9. Acrobat crash when scanning

    Acrobat DC crashes every time I try to create PDF from a scanner. Does not start scanning, just crashes as soon as I click on "Scanner" in "Create a PDF from any format". Have reinstalled Acrobat DC and printer/scanner (Brother MFC-9970CDW) to no avail. This feature worked until recently.

  11. Ability to rename a scanned document while in Preview Pane

    I would love the ability to rename my scanned documents while viewing them in Preview Pane in my Explorer folders. I currently need to preview them, remember detailed information, close that view, then rename the document -- hoping I remembered my information correctly. It would save a TON of time and make us more efficient. Thanks!

  14. Latin OCR support

    An ocean of old texts are in Latin. Many of these need OCR. Support on this would be most welcome as they are often the subject of academic work.

  16. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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:
