  1. Ctrl-F feature broken in new update

    When perusing a PDF file, using the Ctrl-F feature to search the file for a word or phrase causes the entire program to shut down completely. Started on new update yesterday for the PRO DC Version 17.012.20098 update.

    • Open a file

      I am able to Open a File function, but once I email it for testing when the receiving user would like to open the file, they are unable.

      How do I get the file with the form?

      • mailto

        Adobe Acrobat XI Pro mailto link opens IE first and then Outlook 2016. Default program for mailto protocol is set on Outlook 2016 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC opens mailto link on Outlook 2016 only.

        Reset Acrobat XI Pro did not resolve the issue.

        Please assist on rectifying this.

        • Menus

          All Icon based navigation is really confusing. Please stick to regular menu navigation like the rest of the world

              • Request: ability to remotely see a list of all computers using a license and then sign out a single computer

                For example: I have a license for two computers. Sometimes while traveling, I need to use Acrobat Pro DC on my laptop. While attempting to activate Acrobat on this laptop, I receive a warning that both licenses are in use. Only two options are available: (1) log out both licenses. Not acceptable - I only want to log out one of the active licenses, not both. OR (2) log out one of the licenses manually. But this is impossible since I am not in front of either computer.

                So again, I would like the ability to view both active computers…

                • Extract fonts from PDF files

                  Sometimes PDF files contain fonts that is not currently installed, so I have to use another font which doesn't look nice. It is a good idea that Adobe Acrobat can extract those fonts.

                  • Panel placement

                    Would like to have to choice to have the panel on the bottom rather then the side or top. Could another option be added.

                    • The ability to drag and drop and reorder portfolios

                      Would be great to be able edit the portfolios files layout once saved and move the files around or change the order by dragging them to where you want it rather then by the choices provided I think it was called freeform or something like that. I use to be able to do this with Adobe X, with DC I can't. Really am not liking the latest version of Adobe, wish I could go back to my old version.

                      • I love Acrobat... at least I did. I've been using Acrobat for years. I hate DC!

                        Please give me back the stand alone program I can buy and install on my PC.

                        DC hangs more than it works. I really do dislike it. I keep going back to my old PC so I can work with the installed version 10 It works, first time every time!

                        • Page Display "Use system setting" preference is broken

                          Not sure which category this should go in, but Preferences > Page Display > "Use system setting" is broken. When enabled, it causes a spinning beach ball to appear for about 15 seconds with every click or cursor action. When "Custom resolution" (the default) is enabled, there is no problem. "Use system setting" is necessary to display content at the same size as the printed page. The problem is negligible for single page documents, but intolerable for multipage documents (dozens of pages or more). This suggests that Acrobat is rendering every object on every page all the time, not just…

                          • Too many similar products - very confusing.

                            I don't understand the differences between Acrobat Pro, Acrobat DC and other (maybe?) similar products. I get confused over which features I have. I’m not even sure which license I have, because I used to have Acrobat X Pro, then I was upgraded to DC without knowing how or why or being given a choice or understanding what that meant. I’ve now had DC for quite a while, but when I logged into a different device, it wanted me to buy a license.

                            Please straighten all this out and explain it so we can all understand what we have and…

                                • Group Layers and manipulate more than one laer at a time.

                                  Currently layers list as one group when created with AutoCad. Microstation will create a layer hierarchy with referenced files.

                                  The ability to group layers from within Acrobat would be very useful, a drag and drop facility like the method for bookmarks would make this an infinitely more useful file.

                                  Also, the ability to manipulate more than one layer at a time. Currently setting a default state needs to be applied individually. To be able to apply states across multiple layers, ie on and off or default state would be an enormous time saver.

                                  • Send & Track Personalized Email Message

                                    Allow users to edit and save a new default email Subject and body Message when using Send & Track. This is useful for those companies that send PDF files on a regular basis with a particular form letter attached to the file. Currently, we have to cut and paste our message into the default form each time. It would be nice to eliminate this step.

                                      • IRequest for assistance in retrieving pdf document

                                        I worked on a document for 3 hours. Then something unexpectedly happened as I was trying to save it. Now all is gone. Can I retrieve this document by any chance?
