  2. Allow Item List resize in Dropdown Properties

    For legal and compliance reasons, my industry often requires large numbers of items (50+) to be available in our dropdown fields.

    These items often require review and/or quick corrections/edits, and it can be very frustrating to scan for the needed item in the list when the display box can only view 4 or 5 items at a time.

    It is also a frustration when the horizontal length of a field is longer than the box size.

    Allowing the box to be dragged at the corner to increase the x and y lengths would be a small but tremendously helpful ui…

  5. Allow for wifi scanning

    Currently, Adobe Acrobat Pro must be connected directly to the scanning device in order to create PDFs via scanner. Other scanning programs can scan wirelessly, so this should be possible. I'd prefer to use my printer via wifi, but it appears I'll have to connect it via a USB cable only for Acrobat Pro. Would be great if you could add this wifi feature to Acrobat so that this is not required. Thank you.

  6. Long-time electronic archive

    We are looking into the possibility to rearrange our electronic archive which at the time being is stored in TIFF files.

    Tiff files are quite large to handle and we are thinking about converting the files to PDF and OCR-readable.

    In the product Adobe Professional, there are some programs which could be useful for us such as: “reduced size PDF”, “text recognition” and saving the file in a PDF/A format afterwards.

    As we are looking into the possibility for an automatic process, we would like to know if there are any program Dll´s to purchase which can be started by…

  10. Tell the user they need to SAVE!!

    EXAMPLE: I just scanned 19 pages then clicked on TOOLS to use the stamp command. Aggghh I didnt realize that my original scans are now lost forever presumably becuase I didnt save or 'export' the scane? <weep>. Surely you should alert the user that he's not saved his work?

  11. Scanning with scanner interface needs one click

    If Acrobat is to replace PDF generating software, scanning with the native scanner interface needs to be one click - it now is at least 3 clicks - adding this to the customizable menus previously requested would be great.

  12. Efficiency of scanning

    The NEW Acrobat DC is too efficient. When it sees a signature, it tries to convert it to text with spurious results. Old Acrobat Pro would leave signatures as they are and not convert them to text. The move to Acrobat DC has been a backward step.

  15. Older versions of Adobe Acrobat had a "delete blank pages" option that I used when scanning, as I recall. Please bring it back.

    I believe previous versions of Adobe Acrobat had a "delete blank pages" options in the tools section that I used when scanning with Adobe. I cannot find this option in the new version. It was a very useful tool, and I would like it back. Using "extract" is not the same and not nearly as convenient, especially in a long document.

  17. Hindi OCR

    You people are living in India, utilizing its resources, and hiring its people, and making a huge profit out of it, and still you do not support even a single Indian language. We Indians really need to do something about it.

  18. Acrobat on macOS consistently CRASHES silently: DATA LOSS while saving a file


    1. Open Acrobat Pro DC on macOS 10.14.1

    2. Scan a document

    3. Select "Save" command

    4. Select folder

    5. Switch to Finder

    Result: Acrobat is no longer running. Scanned file lost. No crash report dialog is initiated.

    Build: 19.10.20064.311007
    AGM: 4.30.83
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.42216

    The system log shows a bunch of AdobeAcrobat errors: "UNIX error exception: 17" but the app spews so many messages into the log that it's hard to determine which are relevant and where the problem actually starts.
