  2. Delete pages(s) from open file while performing drag-n-drop extraction

    When working with a scan set to be broken into smaller files, provide a key combination (like CTRL-Alt) to automatically remove pages from the scan set after a new file has been created from a selection using drag-n-drop.

  5. Acrobat Pro DC Enhance Deskew Not Very Good

    Through the several different iterations of Acrobat Pro DC the Enhance Deskew tool has never generated professionally straight and page-aligned results. So always have to revert to Acrobat X Pro Text Recognition Tool that consistently generates beautifully straight and page-aligned results. If the old program can do the job then why can't the new one? Very Frustrating.

  6. Deskew of Lines of Text in Acrobat Pro

    I am a theatre artist, an actor. I am sometimes sent imperfect scans of scripts for readings. I would like to deskew lines of text, in order to highlight them as seen in the attached screenshot. I am aware that OCR will deskew "pages" specifically, so they line up well. But in my work, I will occasionally be sent pages that aren't scanned as well as I'd hope. I cannot offend people by asking that they rescan the material, so I have to make the corrections on my end. It is difficult to highlight many lines in a large role,…

  7. Adobe document error warnings

    Adobe consistently crashes when performing redactions on large documents saying that there was an error processing the page and that the document could not be saved. No amount of applying or saving as I go prevents this problem, and I have lost hours of work on this.

  10. Why do the vinculums of the fractions are disappear whenever the sanned document are enhanced?

    Can we make the fractions appear exactly as they are before the Enhance option is run on the scanned doc.

  11. Change default "Home" screen in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    When using Adobe Acrobat Pro for scanning documents every 10 minutes, I need to have a "Home" screen with only one button - "Create PDF" + "From Scanner" + "Grayscale Document (front side)".

    The new setting is driving me crazy. I wish I could downgrade to the old Adobe Acrobat design!

  15. Even after removing text layer, Acrobat refuses ClearScan OCR because "page contains renderable text."

    Even after I remove the hidden text layer in a PDF, I'm still not able to run an OCR with "ClearScan" (i.e. "Editable Text and Images"). It's strange because the text layer appears to be gone, yet running OCR produces the error "Acrobat could not perform recognition because: page contains renderable text."

    Allow this feature to be used for the entire document by a single click. Now it has to be done manually for every page.

  18. Cannot type special characters (e.g. š, č, ć) when correcting recognised text

    For example, if I type "Tomić" when correcting recognised text, after clicking "Accept" it changes to "þÿ".

    I'm using Acrobat DC version 2018.011.20055 on Windows 10 Pro version 1803.

  19. Georegistration tool - Renew the availablility of georegistration tools.

    Many softwares are geospatially aware and can operate on a GeoPDF. Unfortunately most PDF based maps don't typically inherit and/or include a geodetic coordinate reference system (CRS), as the source is often a scanned map or JPG, PNG or other non-spatially aware image format. The ability to easily create a GeoPDF is a valuable way to promote their use, and the previously included georegistration tools were very effective. Assuming that the CRS uses a standard WGS-84 GCS the process is straight forward and easily performed. An enhanced toolset could include standardized alternate coordinate systems with translatable codes - such as…

  20. Please add OCR support for East Asian Languages (CJK) in vertical format

    Currently Acrobat Pro DC recognizes Chinese and Japanese (and probably Korean) in left-to right horizontal format, but does not handle vertical text reliably. The apparent reason is that in edit mode text areas are always defined horizontally. An explicit configuration option for vertical text would fix this. The attached file if a pdf scan of the first section of a recently published Japanese book.
