  1. Set default scale for Measure Tool

    Ability to set the default scale (other than 1=1) for all future PDF docs.
    AND the ability to set the scale for each individual PDF docs that will remain assigned to that PDF even if you exit Adobe Acrobat and re-open it. I'm an engineer, and work with various different scales, so it would be very beneficial for each PDF, if the user set scale would remain locked with each document, so you don't have to re-establish the scale after exiting and re-opening Adobe Acrobat.

  2. Adjustable Graphic scale set for Measure tool.

    As an architect or an engineer, we are always managing plans with different scales that have (usually) a graphic scale for reference. The measure tool would be EXTREMELY useful if includes an option to set the scale by selecting two points on an eventual graphic scale included within an existing pdf... this will help to quickly have the pdf in scale and ready to be measured.

    Please, include this feature.

  5. 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.

  6. Bug: Acrobat DC damages W array during Save as


    • Open the file minimal.pdf in Acrobat DC. Look at the number '11' on page 3 and '12' on page 4.

    • Save As... the document

    • close and reopen the saved document

    • The numbers '11' and '12' are now rendered wrong (glyphs on top of eachother)

    => Acrobat DC changed the font so CID 18 now has a width of 0...

  7. Missing PDF display

    After the October 2018 release update, if the PDF is opened with the output preview displayed, the display is frequently lost. This has not yet been resolved in update 2019.021.20056. Therefore, PDF checking in prepress is the reason why you should use 2017 instead of DC. I think that it was a problem that can be corrected because it was displayed normally before.

  8. Update Acrobat Pro 2019.012.20036 does not display CID identity-h fonts

    Since the Acrobat DC auto update last night to 2019.012.20036, my PDFs are not displaying any fonts.
    On closer inspection the fonts have been embedded in the documents as CID identity-h type fonts from OTF originals. I believe this has always been the case.
    Yesterday I could view the files, today all text is replaced with dots. Other people can view the PDFs correctly in Acrobat Reader. I can print on our digital press correctly. I can view the files in a browser correctly. Just cannot view them in Acrobat DC 20036. The fonts are from the Rotis Semi Sans…

  9. Acrobat DC crashes every time I copy text in Protected Mode

    Acrobat DC 2019.012.20035
    Windows 10 1903 (18362.175)

    Acrobat DC crashes every time I simply select text in a PDF document opened in Protected Mode and choose Copy.

    If I choose to enable editing, it doesn't crash.

  11. Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux

    Linux users are in dire need of a PDF reader and editor ever since Adobe discontinued the Adobe Reader (version 9.x) for Linux!

    None of the currently available (free or proprietary) PDF readers for Linux has proper support for annotating and commenting PDF files. Filling forms and signing documents is also only rudimentary supported by some of the currently available PDF readers for Linux.

    Thus, this is a request to revive Linux support for the latest Adobe Reader as well as the full Adobe Acrobat suite.

  12. Please Release Acrobat Pro 64 Bit for Windows

    Virtually every major software product has been available for Windows 64 bit for many years. So, it is insane that Adobe Acrobat only has a 32 bit version for Windows (and a 64 bit version for macOS). Moreover, it is very easy to create a 64 bit version. So, can you please release one in Q2 2019. Thank you!

  13. lookup function should work with built-in apple dictionary (and not with dictionary.com)

    The current look up reference for word definitions is the webpage dictionary.com, which is really inaccurate sometimes. Besides, the whole operation of being directed to a webpage is nonsense, specially on Apple computer and devices, where you have the built in dictionaries, who are the reference source by default in any other app.
    Moreover, dictionary.com only offer definitions for English words, but is useless if the user is reading a text on another language... So, just integrate the lookup function with apple dictionaries (as it already functions on the mobile app for iPad, for instance)

  14. Acrobat Pro DC hangs (Not Responding) at first run.

    Win 10 x64 1709
    Classroom/lab environment.
    New-to-machine user, in other words, newly created user profile, extremely common in a classroom/lab environment.
    Licensed via ETLA AdobeSerialization.exe
    Installation package modified using Acrobat Customization Wizard DC

    If a user runs Acrobat straight-away, Acrobat.exe hangs and shows a "not responding" status before the Acrobat UI is displayed.

    After killing the Acrobat.exe process, subsequent launches work.

    If a new-to-the-machine user launches then closes Google Chrome AND Microsoft Edge BEFORE running Acrobat then runs Acrobat, Acrobat launches without issue.

    Disabling Protected View via policy has no effect.

    No errors are displayed.

    There are no discernable errors…

  15. Create 64-Bit Adobe Acrobat for Windows

    Please create a 64-bit version of the Adobe Acrobat Professional for the Windows platform. I work with adobe files that are greater than 10,000 pages quite frequently and although my computer has 24 gigabytes of DRAM, the program cannot utilize my computer. For example, I have legislative transcripts that I compile by the session, and I would like to be able to use a single PDF file while doing my research.

    Please, give us Windows users the type of PDF performance found on Macs.

    Thank you.

  16. "Content preparation progress" takes too long

    Whenever opening pdf file, Acrobar Pro DC always shows a window titled as 'content preparation progress". This takes too long and blocks file content & makes hard to read file content.
    Sometimes several minutes, sometimes forever!
    This needs to be improved.

    Thanks for reprting the issue. Can you please provide your machine detalis with the Acrobat version you are using.

  18. Adobe Send & Track Add-in for Outlook stops email signature coming through when sending PDFs

    Installation of Adobe Add-in for Send & Track should not be automatic. It blocks the email signature of the user in Outlook 2013 from appearing when he/she wants to send a PDF by email directly from Adobe or other program which uses the Outlook API

  19. 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.
