  1. option in Mac platform for Print to Adobe PDF for fillable forms

    On MAC platform, Print to Adobe PDF and Save as Adobe PDF do not work to change filled forms into forms without fill. This option is available on IBM platform. This is a major drawback for me and a huge market of legal professionals---we have to use Adobe PDF fillable forms created by courts--and the forms are locked so we can't sign them or edit them unless we can save them to a nonfillable format. PLEASE FIX THIS FATAL ERROR. Need an option like what is available on IBM platform. My option now is dump the Mac OR move the…

  4. Scroll performance is very bad when Find text dialog is open

    When viewing the OMG UML Specification pdf, which is 796 pages, if I click Cmdl+F to find some text, after the text is found, scrolling through pages gets very slow.

    Indeed, the problem is noticeable even in short Pdf files (18 pages)

    The slowness continues even if I disable the "Highlight all matches" option from the search preferences. When I close the Find dialog, scrolling speed is good again.

    I am working on a Macbook Pro 13 Inch 2015 model, MacOS Catalina, Acrobat Reader DC 2020.006.20042 version.

  7. Using location and file name of original document for pdf generation.

    When generating a pdf version from word using the "save as adobe pdf",
    it would be useful not just to have the original word document file name
    as default preselected but also to have the storage location of the original word document preselected.
    The file name from the original document is already used, so I'd imagine using the original document location should be easy.
    Currently the default location seems from a document one has previously worked on.
    It would be quite beneficial especially if one is working with several different documents at the same time.

    I believe the older version…

  8. Adobe PDF Pack Add-On request

    I purchased the Adobe PDF Pack and would like to have an add-on feature allowing password protection for docs. Or simply, add it to this product!

    Currently it is necessary to buy the Adobe Pro DC to access that ability and that has more features than I need for my small business and thereby too expensive.

  9. Expand bookmark function

    After creating bookmarks I/ll be happy to see highlighted the word searched by bookmark. For the moment bookmark is giving you a page when the text, but not a single word. If you click double on a word and make a bookmark it is just reverse: click on bookmark and see selected word. Thanks for your concern! Roman

  14. Issues combining PDF documents.

    Issues combining files together. With Windows 10 when I select multiple pdfs and right-click to select "Combine supported files in Acrobat" and select the files, there are issues merging files together and maintaining the correct characters (+, -, % & =). When I first create the pdf's, all characters show up correctly. I have attached a post from 2017 with exact same issue. Not sure why is shown as declined and there is no solution available? Please help me fix this issue.

  16. Errors syncing preferences

    I'm running Acrobat DC as part of Creative Cloud (CC) on several Macs. I use the sync feature to sync Acrobat preferences between all of these computers. I especially rely on the Acrobat preferences being sync'd for things like signatures and custom toolbars arrangement. I recently added two new computers, a MBP and an iMac Pro. When I installed CC and Acrobat DC on the MBP it worked fine. But on the iMac Pro Acrobat preferences sync is broken. The following steps illustrate the problem:

    1) Reboot the system to start from a clean state. Make sure no applications or…

  17. Screen freezes with every change made in the PDF with Quick tools

    Every change made with quick tools or tool bar freezes the PDF, takes 10 seconds and then blink screen once before allowing other changes.

    For example, If I want to highlight a text. I move over it with my cursor and it shows me the highlighted text. The screen freeze for 10 seconds, blinks and only then will it let me scroll down or choose another option or allow another highlight.

  19. IDP initiated SSO Authentication

    Currently Adobe only supports SP initiated SSO authentication. We would like our users to be able to go directly from IDP initiated. This is a basic feature of most IDP services and would be great to have.

  20. Adobe PDF Print needs a PDF/UA option

    We need to be able to save WCAG compliant, semantic HTML files (e.g. from Firefox) as PDF/UA, but Adobe PDF does not offer this option. Saving as PDF/A does not produce a tagged (UA) file.

    Adobe's pdf print gadget should use the browser accessibility tree, and tag the PDF accordingly.

    PDF/UA has been an ISO standard since 2012. WCAG 2.1 was finalized in 2019, and WCAG 2.x compliance is now mandatory for public sector procurements in North America, the EU and various other jurisdictions.

    What on earth is going on with your accessibility roadmap, Adobe? Apart from Acrobat on Windows,…
