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

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Customize view when open PDF

    I would like to be able to customize what opens in DC like previous versions. For example, I almost always need the comments bar open when I open PDFs. It was save me time and clicks if I could set in Preferences or someplace to always open that bar when opening a PDF> I used to be able to do this i thought in previous versions. I hop eyou can add this tweak.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you faced. Can you elaborate on the issues you are facing with Acrobat DC and allow us to help you here.

  7. 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.

  9. Can't save a simple change without having to 'save as' and rename the document

    If you go into a saved document and change something you cannot save it you have to save it as a completely separate document. i.e. I edit one line to be italicized and hit save and I get a pop up error that states, "The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.

    1) I am the only user
    2) I created the .pdf document yesterday and did NOT make it read-only.

  10. 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 for the feedback. Acrobat XI is now out of active development, but we are making a note of your feature request.
    Thanks again for reporting

  11. Enhanced Search for PDF index search

    1. Since the indexing will index the all multiple pdfs. Type ahead search should be supported. Instead currently the user has to type and enter search for the search results.
    2. Since the indexing will index the all multiple pdfs. Type ahead search with number of hits found should be shown before hitting the search
    3. Searching should be as fast as google. 10,000 pdf files of 100kb each and type ahead search should be less than a second
    4. Other than scroll bar for navigating the results there should be a easier way to filter the search results.
    5. Grouping of folders wise doesn't…

    Could you be more specific with the issue you are facing. Is there an Acrobat feature you are not able to use?

  13. The right panel could be hid in Adobe Acrobat XI that worked wonderfully well for me. Annoyingly, I can't seem to do so in the Pro 17!

    I want Adobe Acrobat Pro 17 to work at least half as well as Adobe Acrobat Pro XI that did the jobs I needed wonderfully well for me. I NEED TO CLOSE THE RIGHT PANEL JUST LIKE I COULD IN XI!!!!!!!!!!! i SEE OTHERS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT TOO. If something wasn't broke in older version why "fix it" with this one. It interferes with my ability to follow through on searched text and read same with the split screen capability Windows offers! PLEASE FIX IT SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Restrict 'Save As'

    Currently, you can restrict print and save, but cannot restrict Save As. Would like to see that restriction added as well.
    Thanks for your consideration.

  16. Add tutorial to add an index to a book. Your instructions for it are WAY TOO VAGUE.

    I have been trying to add an index for a 278 page book in PDF. I spent an hour on the phone to tech support in India and no one there seems to know how to do this.

    I also need to be able to VIEW it and install it into this PDF to publish it. PLEASE add a tutorial on how this is done, step by step, without CLOUDING the issue with terms like "catalog" and "metatdata" that do NOT contribute to the objective.

    Need Info  ·  Vivek Chandra responded

    Hi

    You can try the following –
    Go to Organize Pages App to move the pages you want to see next to each other.
    Then go to View→Display Options and select Two pages.

    Please let us know if this works for you.

    Thanks
    Vivek

  19. In output preview the separations still view in CMYK when only one colour is selected. So you can't see the seperate plates in Acrobat.
