  1. 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...

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Acrobat Pro user license status report

    We have added and assigned 274 Adobe DC Pro users to the VIP Portal. We now need to run a report that provides activation status for each user i.e. if a user has installed Adobe DC pro and activated the license. Is that feature available or can it be added?

    Check the problem with the latest version of AcrobatReader DC.
    Please provide information.

    AcrobatReader DC 2019.012.20034

  6. Flickering pages

    When I switch colors in output preview, the screen flickers.
    For example, here at time 1:08-1:20: https://youtu.be/ShbafbUx9FU?t=68
    When output preview is enabled, the screen also blinks when browsing between pages.
    This is a "feature" of Acrobat DC, older versions work correctly.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Show page numbers in advanced search results

    Problem: When doing an Advanced Search, in order to find out the page number of any given search result, you must hover the pointer over each individual search hit and wait for a popup of its page number to appear.

    Feature request: Show the page numbers on which those hits occur, and preferably in a column to the left of each search hit.

    Reason it's needed: This would save a tremendous amount of time for certain labor intensive tasks, for instance, manually indexing a book. To elaborate a bit: When manually indexing a large book (say, 500 pages), you regularly…

  13. Provide 64-bit acrobat option

    Even with 32gb of RAM, 64-bit windows 10 O/S, and i9 processor, it is difficult to open a 150 page pdf file with 36"x48" sheets of drawings. We get the out of memory error all the time or the pages are blank.

  15. Adobe Product admin console.

    My idea is about the Adobe Product admin console. It would be great from the admin perspective to monitor product usage. Is this doable?

  16. error message for non administrative users (msiexec.exe)

    When you start Adobe Acrobat Pro without local adminstrative rights a error message appears.(see attachment)
    We identified the corresponding command line with procmon: "C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe" /i {AC76BA86-1033-FFFF-7760-0C0F074E4100} REINSTALLMODE=omus DISABLEFIUCHECK=1 IGNOREAAM=1 REPAIRFROMAPP=1 INSTALLUWPAPP=1 /qn"

    We deployed the "Creative Cloud Client" as a "Self-Serivce-Packages", so licensed Users can install and use adobe products without local administrative rights.

    Could you please check why msiexec.exe is called with every program start? We get a lot of tickets from users complaining about this error message and your support wasnt a help at all.

  17. Tool Bar icons

    The Tool Bar icons appear cartoonish - maybe at least tighten their outlines so they appear crisper!

  18. slow and laggy

    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 19.10.20064.311007
    AGM: 4.30.83
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.42216

    Incredibly slow and laggy, UI is almost unusable. Using 50% - 100% of a single core just to scroll. Ironically I am trying to read the Adobe PDF Reference, Third Edition.

    Really Adobe? I can't even read a 9MB file ABOUT the PDF specification in YOUR OWN software without it slowing to a crawl?

  19. Acrobat DC Standard hangs while loading license status

    When opening any PDF, document loads in DC, then hangs for ~10s while license status is accessed. Once license status appears in lower right corner (e.g. "Your current plan is Acrobat Standard DC, annual"), app becomes responsive again.

    New issue, very annoying, please fix.

  20. Preview handler in Windows 10 locks PDF files if active on windows preview pane.

    For some reason, we cannot delete PDF files store on a network because the preview handler locks the file. We have to hit the delete key which opens a windows prompt that the file is in use, then unselect the PDF file, and then click in the windows dialog to try again.
