  4. Allow Action Wizard to "Close" files

    The feature was available on early versions which made batch processing easier. I believe it allowed the user to Execute a Menu Item. Please bring it back. The javascript work arounds all seem to have their own little issues.

  5. Acrobat DC is so horrible that I will toss it for a pirate copy

    It is dead slow! I have an 64bit Windows 10 laptop and it takes almost two minutes to exit it! I will toss it for a pirate copy without cloud options.
    It sucks big time.

  7. Need an inbuilt way to Trigger the Action Items created in ACROBAT DC Coditionally.(This has been a request since long long long time)

    Sadly , there is no way to trigger the Custom Action Items created in Acrobat DC Conditionally:
    Examples:
    1. If the Page number is > 5 then RUN Action item else Skip.
    2. If the bookmarks are available/unavailable then RUN Action item 'x' else RUN Action item 'y'.
    3. If the Page orientation is A3 then Skip Action item.

    It gets harder because:
    Even with Custom commands it is not possible to Call/RUN an already saved Action Item.
    Example:
    if (this.numPages > 5) -> Call/Run a Action Item "eX;Set open Options" -> Then Save the file.

    You can't do it,…

  8. add the split option to the "tools to add" in Action Wizard.

    Please add the split option to the "tools to add" when creating a new Action Wizard action.

    This would allow for automated actions to be created where split top level bookmarks using bookmark names for file names utilized as part of a action, so it wouldn't be necessary to physically go through the setup process of: Organize Pages/Split/Split by: Top level bookmarks/Output Options/Use bookmark names for file names.

    Apologies for the trouble, can you provide some sample rich media PDFs with which you are facing this.

  10. Embedded video in PDF Interactive has borders

    I have a video in MP4, H.264 embedded in an Interactive PDF. Properties are with no border and background white, still before it starts reproducing I see a grey cube in place of the video and as long as it is not in Full Screen mode I have always some kind of border around the video. Even worse, the border changes everytime I open it, sometimes it's above, then beneath, then to the right or to the left. Contacted the support two times already, they can't help. Told me that the senior team would get in contact with me, I…

  12. Adobe Acrobat Pro bug

    When opening a pdf file on Adobe Acrobat Pro (and some other times, just after launching Adobe Acrobat Pro), the app occasionally stops working and the cursor turns to spinning rainbow for a few minutes. Sometimes (after a long while) the app resumes its functions, other times it does not and I'm forced to force-quit the application and re-launch it.


    1. Launch Adobe Acrobat Pro / Open a pdf file on Acrobat Pro

    2. Mac Pro (Late 2013) (OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6)

    3. Proper Function

    4. Application crashes and / or freezes

    Here is the report I'm getting when I force-quit the…

  13. Show page numbers in advanced search results

    Problem: When doing an Advanced Search, in order to find out the page number of any given search result, you must hover the pointer over each individual search hit and wait for a popup of its page number to appear.

    Feature request: Show the page numbers on which those hits occur, and preferably in a column to the left of each search hit.

    Reason it's needed: This would save a tremendous amount of time for certain labor intensive tasks, for instance, manually indexing a book. To elaborate a bit: When manually indexing a large book (say, 500 pages), you regularly…

  14. DC PRO constantly crashes

    DC Pro is totally unreliable, whether creating a pdf, trying to access a pdf or saving the program displays "DC Pro not responding. Happens very frequently making the program useless. Have worked with support 3 times no resolve. Occurs on both my WIN10 and WIN7 computers, never had a problem with ver 7 through 10. Pay lots for DC team but will have to look for another vendor.

  17. Boolean with Exact Phrase(s)

    Greetings, dear colleagues!

    I want to use Advanced Search of the Acrobat XI in order to perform the following search query:

     cat AND "barking dog"
    

    However by trials and errors I found that this syntax does not work in Boolean query mode of the Advanced Search.

    It would be great to have such simple, but extremely useful search option

    Thank you.

    Thanks again for reporting
