  1. Preview GIFs & Video online on Adobe Acrobat send & track links

    Adobe Acrobat does not have this feature available yet.

    ie: https://cloud.acrobat.com/send

    Needs the following features online:

    Preview GIF animations & Preview videos online.
    Right now you can only view content as a static JPG you have to download all assets in order for the client to preview files.

    This creates a redundant step for a client especially if they are not tech savvy.

    Gifs have to be reopened with a browser & videos need to be viewed on the clients video player.

    If the link is already online not understanding why you need to download & reopen in a browser…

  2. Extract attachments and place them behind the parent email in a flowing documen

    Extract attachments and place them behind the parent email
    When converting Outlook email all the attachment to be converted as a full blown document so it can be reviewed and redacted if necessary. I've attached two files to show you what I mean. I have to use a third party software to do this and it would be very helpful for Adobe to do it, especially for the legal community who need to review and redact documents.

  4. Acrobat shows bullets in special PDF, other PDF Viewers don't

    The attached PDF seems to be correct, so we would like to know why there are bullets shown when it is opened in Acrobat?
    There is also an error in Acrobat: "Cannot extract embedded font 'CIDFont+F5' ..."
    There are not this kind of bullets with other PDF viewers like Foxit, Nuance..
    These errors don't happen in the attached optimized PDF.

  6. Extract transmittal info for PDF’d emails

    After bulk converting folders of emails to PDF it would be extremely handy to be able to export the list of emails for transmittal. A pdf or text file of the visible list of emails in one file within adobe for excel to creat a detailed transmittal would be time saving.
    Basic info for a transmittal is required and is available in the adobe list for each email in a group of emails in a pdf’d batch. Info like: .Sender/Receiver Address, Date & time Sent/Received, Subject, attachment #, etc. One line per email within a “group” folder of bulk exported…

  7. Portfolios created in earlier versions of acrobat opened in Acrobat DC

    Currently in acrobat dc opening old portfolios created with older versions are rendered useless. Very few options for operations are available. To convert older portfolios suitable in dc, I had to go through following process:

    There is a way to convert xi portfolio to dc portfolio:

    Try this:

    Open portfolio created in xi in acrobat dc
    right click anywhere, select all - this will select all files in portfolio
    extract files
    save to a temporary folder, say working files
    select all files in working files folder
    right click, combine files in acrobat
    select save as portfolio or uncheck save as…

  9. Make it stable guys.

    Acrobat reader is extremly slow and freezes up a lot. crashing has been reduced over time but it still lags for about 5 to 6 seconds after opening a pdf. openign a pdf file also take a lot of time.

    The editing capablities are poorly designed. no snapping. no aligninig to page. the most terible app that adobe has ever made is this. you guys devloped pdf and you can't even open it without 6 second freezing. i am very disaapointed. please fix the whole thing.

  10. No Support

    I am very new to this. But, each time I have gone to a Feedback section, regardless of the topic, the response from Adobe is some variation of "Great idea, Frank. I will forward your feedback to . . . . . .
    and they will get back to you before you die; hopefully." They seem incapable of providing a helpful, substantive response

  11. I have Adobe Acrobat DC: lost recents today: how do I get back?

    Not idea: this is a bug. I have Adobe Acrobat DC: when I would scan something into my computer and use acrobat to save it, Acrobat would have a screen of "recents" so I could choose that. Suddenly that is gone. I have rebooted my computer and it hasn't come back. Any idea how I get this back? It is quite handy.

  12. Stop refreshing the page thumbnails

    When I have the Page Thumbnails sidebar open and I switch between different open PDFs Acrobat refreshes the whole thing, including all the pages which can be slow and locks-up the whole UI. Why can't it cache the thumbnails when I switch between documents? It becomes very painful if I have a long PDF with 100+ pages in.

  15. Acrobat DC is disabling the lights when vertex colors are used in the U3D input file, is there any way to overcome this?

    I have created a U3D file with a mesh and vertex colors. I have created a PDF file using the Latex tool.
    When opening the PDF file in Acrobat DC, I see that the lightning is disabled. This does not happen when the U3D file uses material colors instead of vertex colors.

  20. When, if ever, will we see Acrobat thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer?

    Select Acrobat DC Preferences>General>Enable PDF thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer. Tick the box to choose this option, close preferences, then reopen it to discover Acrobat DC has unchecked it. Must generate hours of laughs around Adobe's watercooler. Using Windows 10.

    Much has been written many many forums a fountain of sorrow from other users feeling the same pain. Please, guys. Fix it?

    Your response team gives us a non-working solution, telling us to increase the size of thumbnails in Explorer to a point where content can be seen, but those thumbs are already being displayed at maximum size in Windows…
