  2. I can't open the PDF attachment from email

    I received this file thorough email and I can't open it in my MacBook, but it opens in other computers.

  5. 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.

  6. Automatically open the same files after restart

    Automatically open the same files on same page after restart. This would great in conjunction with the feature "Restore last view settings when reopening documents". If one has several documents open and one has to restart Adobe Acrobat or Windows it would be quite timesaving and relieve the pain of having to find each document and re-open.

  7. When starting, open documents previously open

    Often I'll have 5-10 documents open at once - they are constantly in use. When I close Acrobat they are all closed. and when I re open Acrobat I need to reopen all the documents. It would be nice if it would veryt simply open all of the files open when it was last closed.

  11. DC Reader is the Microsoft Vista of document readers

    If you have the "new" DC Reader...get rid of it.
    it's slow.
    it's choppy.
    The phrase "Not Responding" shows up more than a taxi in New York City.
    This has got to be the crappiest Adobe product I've ever had the displeasure of working with.
    I've told my company's IT department to start looking for something else.
    Acrobat Reader DC is pure American ****.

  13. Bug - Converting Font to Outlines

    1. Bug When Converting Font to Outlines
    2. Open PDF and run Convert Fonts to Outlines under Print Production then Preflight
    3. macOS 10.12.5
    4. Fonts should be converted to outlines
    5. Fonts are not converted when opening PDF in Illustrator

    PDF files from InDesign do not seem to be affected. It looks like only PDFs created from Illustrator do not convert fonts to outlines.

  17. Saving Pixel perfect AI file as pdf which don't keep pixel perfect previewing in Acrobat.

    Saving a pixel perfect Adobe Illustrator as a pdf doesn't keep the pixel perfect content when previewing in Acrobat. It distorts one line pixels to two pixels in random area. Icon are distorted as well.

  18. Remove Document Cloud Feature

    Due to corporate policy, we are not allowed to use external servers, Document Cloud is such a server. Our documents are not to be loaded to any external servers.
    Can we have the ability to remove the Document Cloud from view or code-wise?
    We can not have our confidential documents going to Adobe's servers.

  20. Save/Save new PDF not working

    Save. 'Save as'. CMD + S. It doesn't matter how I attempt, I cannot save regular PDFs from inside Acrobat. I have to create an 'optimized PDF' in order to save any of my work inside of Acrobat. I have been loving the functionality of the new Acrobat, but now I can't even save. Very frustrating.
