  1. Bug report - pdf won't open with Acrobat DC pro but opens properly with reader

    I am trying to open a pdf form from the Gov. of Canada using Acrobat Pro DC but nothing happens. After double clicking the file, I can see a background process (in task manager) but it doesn't show any activity and the interface doesn't show even after several minutes of waiting. I have tried restarting / repairing installation but same result. Any other document works fine. I have tried opening the same document on another machine with Acrobat reader DC and it opens properly in a few seconds. I have attached the document as well as a screenshot of the…

  2. Bug report—macOS keyboard shortcut new bookmark

    To bookmark text, drag to select it. The selected text becomes the label of the new bookmark ONLY if you use the mouse—using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-B creates a bookmark with a blank name.

    Please fix!

    Hi victorm28962446,

    When you delete any file from portfolio, the portfolio index or File list in portfolio get updated automatically, you just need to save the changes made by you.

    Hope this will help.

    Thansk,

  6. Bug: Converting spot colour to cymk PFF corrupts .tiff image

    Bug.
    Customer supplied files from InDesign cs6 with .tiff picture over a solid spot colour.
    When converting the file to CYMK via acrobat pro, the tiff picture corrupts leaving a white space instead of the correct image.
    PDF fix up fail to spot or fix issue. Could only be solved by editing original InDesign files, changing spot to CYMK and informing customer.

  8. Add Search Function/Box to Cloud File Storage Services (e.g. Box, Dropbox, Onedrive)

    We need the ability to query a Cloud storage account for a present folder (and the ability to create a new folder) when opening or saving files directly from Adobe Acrobat.

    Since it seems Adobe uses the same infrastructure for all cloud storage systems, if this is implemented for one company, I'd imagine it'd be entered for all compatible ones (Box, Dropbox, Onedrive, etc.).

    We already have this functionality in the Microsoft Office integrations of these same cloud providers, so using Acrobat significantly slows the process of opening or saving files from the cloud when one has to go through…

  9. The description on invoices is unreadable gobble-de-gook!

    The description on invoices Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is complete gobble-de-gook!

    The description on our invoices currently says:
    65222762 APAP,ALL,MLP,DRI01,MAU,001,N/A,1 YR
    EAME
    Line Tax Rate: 10 %

    It should say something like:
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC monthly subscription fee

    I'm not the only one who would like this changed. A Google search reveals plenty of other people who would like this changed too.

  10. REMOVE window changing position after saving a file

    Currently, when you save a PDF the software slightly changes the window position, perhaps because the developers wanted a subtle way of emphasizing the completion of the saving process.

    However, this window position changing is VERY MUCH ANNOYING for those users who are working with their screen splitted between two softwares. For instance, using Windows 10, when you put Acrobat to the left (WindowsKey + LeftKey) and another software to the right (WindowsKey + RightKey). Then, if you save your file in Acrobat it changes it's window position, putting the window slightly over the other software and leaving an unused…

  11. Smooth Scrolling

    We want real smooth scrolling (not just continuous scrolling).

    I mean that kind of scroll we get when using a web browser. SMOOTH scrolling! It would also look like dragging text with a "hand tool" in Reader but with a mouse wheel.

    Current method makes text jump one or three lines at a time (depending on your mouse settings), which pretty much irritating!

    I appreciate your attention.

  12. Crashes trying to bring panels to second monitor.

    Acrobat DC on an iMac with 4k retina display with a second monitor attached.
    When I try to bring a panel, such as the Pan & Zoom panel, onto the second monitor, first of all, it doesn't show up on the second panel. I moved it off the first monitor and the part that should show up on the 2nd monitor doesn't show up.

    When I move the pane fully onto the 2nd monitor, instantly Adobe Acrobat DC crashes.

  14. Clearer communication

    Adobe newsletter touting availability of Compare feature doesn't mention this is a Pro-only feature. The link from the article lists step-by-step instructions for using this cool feature never once mentioning that it's only available for Pro version. The screencap shows Pro but it is tiny font and very easy to miss.

    This required an investment by me and your customer support to resolve this. Better communication on your end about who has access to your features is a good thing.

  19. Bug - Acrobat Preflight Fixup Transparency Flattening introduces extreme JPG artifacts

    When using the Flatten Transparency Preflight Fixup, transparent images that are flattened are heavily compressed, introducing extreme JPG artifacts and banding in smooth gradients.

    This does not match flattening out of Indesign or Illustrator or using the Flattener in the Acrobat Print Production tools. We would expect to get the same results with the Preflight fixup that would be produced with other flattening methods.

    See attached with examples of original unflattened art, art flattened with Acrobat Print Production and Acrobat Preflight fixup.

    Preflight produces a severely degraded image with visible banding and large artifacts that aren't visible on the other…
