  3. Crash when copying text with format, after pasting in other application

    Acrobat Pro DC (2020.006.20042) on Windows 10 64bit (1909 18363.836)
    ALWAYS crashes, when copying text with formations, after trying to paste the text to another program like Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator.

    Some times it paste the text correctly and then crashes, after trying to focus Acrobat. Sometimes it just crash and paste nothing.

    With out formatting, all works.

    This is not only the case for the latest releases. I got this behave for over an year, and with every update it got's more worst.

    Maybe Adobe can move from fail-fast over to an fail-safe/fail-unsafe behave of the CC programs.

  4. Cannot type anywhere and keyboard shortcuts do not work.

    We have 19 windows 10 PC that have Adobe Reader and you cannot type anywhere. This includes the search filed, form fields, page range on printing, comments, etc. it is like the program is not accepting input from the keyboard because Ctrl + F does nothing but you can open the search by using the mouse and toolbars. You can paste into all of these fields by right click and paste but not Ctrl + V. The issue seams to be isolated to Windows 10 and the reader version. the Windows 7 machines that we have are not having the…

  6. Error message when attempting to compress a file "An error was encountered while processing images."

    I receive this error message when I select File -> Compress PDF.

    I currently have Adobe Acrobat Standard DC installed on a computer running Windows 10.

    I have used this feature to compress numerous other PDFs made from documents that contain text and images. I'm not sure why this feature has found a problem with the images. It would be nice if the error message also included suggestions on how to fix the problem.

  8. enable scrolling - please

    View>Page Display > Enable scrolling. Make it easy to change the default for this OR even better please make enabled scrolling the default view. Who on this earth doesn't want to enable scrolling? Please tell me what kind of business person that is who likes the pages to keep jerking around as you get too close to the bottom of the screen when enabled scrolling is not enabled. Tell me! Probably seismologists.

  10. Invoice notification or receival via email

    There is no option to receive the invoices via email nor to the option to receive a notification when the invoice has been raised on your account.

    Can this be implemented? I believe in this era at least one of the two should be granted.

  11. restrict copy of pdf file

    dear adobe developer,

    In pandemic times, it is necessary to make PDF documents even more secure, taking into account that people are avoiding using printed paper instead of the PDF file. It is necessary to create tools that make it impossible for people to copy, share documents.

    I look forward to returning if possible.

  13. BUG: Scroll wheel freeze

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (Build: 20.6.20042.371807) on a mac OS 10.12.6

    If I use the scroll wheel on my mouse to zoom on a PDF, Acrobat freezes. It does not freeze when using the mouse scroll wheel to scroll through pages, nor does it freeze if I click the + button to zoom. Only freezes when using the mouse scroll wheel to zoom.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

  14. Acrobat Output Preview: colour warning: show overprinting: highlights object which does not actually overprint

    POSSIBLE BUG

    This was originally brought to my attention by my print vendor, who asked that I correct the overprint and resubmit the file for offset print. As I preflight all my files, I was caught off guard. But on re-inspection I could see the overprint issue.

    During preflight process of the InDesign PDF file, a pattern graphic is highlighted as overprinting when selecting Output Preview: Colour Warning: Show Overprinting.

    This graphic appears normal in separation view with Simulate Overprinting turned on – the separations and values appear correct. Output Preview: Object Inspector shows the object is false for any…

  15. 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…

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
