  2. Adobe DC crashes when opening second pdf - reason: win 10 cumulative update

    When trying to open a second pdf in an new tab, Acrobat DC crashes after some seconds of freeze.

    I found the reason for this in the latest two Win 10 cumulative updates of 08 and 09/2020. Skipping the update in August and hoping, that the update in September works better didn't help. Deinstalling these updates solves the problem.

    Some other applications are affected as well (like the launcher from EA/Origin or the Samsung Magician).

    This is the message from the windows event viewer:
    Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: Acrobat.exe, Version: 20.12.20048.6926, Zeitstempel: 0x5f5b9602
    Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: D3D9.DLL, Version: 10.0.19041.488,…

  3. Flatten transparency results into false handling of a smooth shade and damaged result

    When flattening the attached PDF with Acrobat DC, the shade (which is covered by a vector object and therefore only visible as some kind of a frame), becomes visible.
    This is clearly not the expected results and therefore a bug.

  7. Open PDFs with a single click from SharePoint Online

    Please provide a way to open a PDF in Acrobat with one click (or one double-click) when the file is stored in SharePoint On-Line (and in Microsoft Teams).

    We can open them from an On-Prem SharePoint server, but not from the On-Line version. We can also open them from Outlook, but not SharePoint On-Line.

    The work around is to click on the PDF, which opens it in a browser; then, I can download it to a local drive; then, I can open it. Please just let me open it from SharePoint (or Teams) On-Line.

    Thank you.

  10. Logging in to account

    Previously I had to log in to my Acrobat account once a few times a year but since Sept 2020 I have to log in every time I open Acrobat. It has become a bit annoying.

  12. **** annoying pop ups

    Stop with the unsolicited 'try this' pop ups. You aren't google or a CNN website. I don't pay an appalling amount of money to use your service for incessant popup windows

  13. Federated ID event logs not available after migration to SHA-256 IdP

    Recently we have updated to SHA-256 IdP.
    Unfortunately since then the option to see logon events is not available anymore.
    Please make it available again as it helps while troubleshooting or confirm correct functionality after changes.

  14. I am using Acrobat Pro DC.

    The latest update of the Acrobat Pro DC has made the application sluggish and cumbersome. Every action causes a window to open saying something about preparing the document for use. It doesn't matter whether I am signing a document or sending it to print, this message pops up and you can;t move forward until it completes whatever action it is doing.

  16. Adobe Reader Extension

    Hi Team,

    We are designing Dynamic Forms using adobe LiveCycle Designer which fetch the data from server - az18w1445 (where we have stored .xls files about users information).
    To Fetch the data from the required server we used to access the site - http://ie3bvwitss347:8080/ReaderExtensions/Welcome?ap=1which is dependent on flash. Can't we access the adobe reader extension without flash. Do we have any aletrnative to fetch and automatically fill the the data into forms.

  17. Preflight Prepress Profile, Sheetfed Offset (CMYK and spot) no longer warns of glyph width issues

    I noticed that Acrobat DC's Sheetfed Offset preflight profile no longer warns of fonts with glyph width issues. Unfortunately, I became aware of this after misprinting book covers due to this issue. Although the font Georgia-Italic previews fine within Acrobat, it outputs as shown within Finder's preview. Acrobat X1 and several other preflight applications flag this issue but Acrobat DC does not.

    Based on my tests, version 1 of this particular font must be exported from InDesign with the subset fonts option at 100% (rather than the recommended 0%). Although I know how to fix the issue, I need Acrobat…

  18. Acrobat desktop ver 20.012.22043 doesn't run in the beta version of macOS

    I understand that you don't support beta OS versions, but it crashes with a document open whenever I do anything. Print, Save, Edit, etc. Also true in Reader. Reported to Apple, also. This will need to be fixed soon or your customer service people will be very unhappy.

  19. Adobe Reader DC Issues with Finder in Mac

    Hi,

    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC removes Finder's "Tags" and "Date Last Opened" if you save an edited PDF after removing "Text Highlight".

    The following procedure can replicate the bug:


    1. Download and open a PDF file such as this from Adobe’s website: https://learndownload.adobe.com/pub/learn/acrobat/edit-text-images-pdf-files.zip


    2. In the macOS Finder, assign a Tag and open the file.


    3. Go back to finder and check the Tag and the Date Last Opened


    4. Go back to the pdf, highlight a line and save the file (first save).


    5. Remove the highlighted text and save the file again (second save).


    6. Now go to the Finder, the "Tag" and the…
