  1. Unexplained error

    Popup reads "adobe acrobat dc cannot etc. you need to download a copy of adobe acrobat etc. then you get two options either quit or repair and download new acrobat. Repair does not get rid of the error. So I now choose quit. I recently downloaded and reinstalled acrobat dc, and still get the error, usually after a cloud update

  2. Saving a File with Multiple PDFS Open

    Saving a file with multiple pdfs open. The idea would be similar to Sheets in Excel.

  3. Files update when saved over and still open in Acrobat.

    If a user saves an ai file as pdf (for example) and a "view pdf after saving" is selected, the pdf opens in Acrobat - but, the file DOES NOT update if the pdf is left open and the file is saved over. I personally do this probably 20+ times a day as a I tweak a file.

    Acrobat could have a setting "update open files." Many of us use acrobat as a final visual proof before sending to clients, currently we have to close, open/find to view files after save-overs.

  4. Make Pro DC work with Chromebooks or at least have an interface, so Chromebooks can utilize the web-based version of DC.

    Make Pro DC work with Chromebooks or at least have an interface, so Chromebooks can utilize the web-based version of DC. A lot of new forms work in a dynamic fashion with signature blocks and fillable content that changes on selections. You are alienating an entire platform.

  7. Acrobat DC Bug Leaking Handles

    I'm using windows 7 and 10 and Acrobat DC

    Bug: Windows task manager (Details tab, with "Handles" column enabled" ) reports that the Acrobat process is now using more than 1 million handles.

    I just updated to DC 21.005.20048 after discovering the million handles.

    I am trying to reproduce the handle leak by starting from a fresh session of Acrobat. I usually have many big PDFs open and CTRL+F search them regularly (clicking forwards/next and backwards/previous)

    Here is a medium sized one from archive.org

    https://archive.org/download/n08ontariosession31onta/n08ontariosession31onta.pdf

    When I search it for common words (the, if, ...) the handle count does increase.…

  9. Password required after Authentication App approval

    Windows 10 (Lenovo PC). Is the point of using the Adobe Authentication App to cofirm access when logging in not intended to make use of a password unnecessary? When logging in, we are asked to confirm on the app and then asked for the password. If a password is always going to be required, then the (mis-)information in the motivation for using the App needs to be updated.

  10. Split by page range

    10-14, 96-103, 108-115, 127-135, 146-153 It would be helpful if we could split pdf with page range like above. It will create separate pdf for every page range. This feature is available in Nitro pdf. Foxit users also can do this with extract feature. Please consider this feature .

  11. Bad interaction with Adobe Community Professional

    I would like someone at Adobe to review the interaction linked below and take whatever action is necessary. I posted a sincere, respectful question, and I got a disrespectful, passive-aggressive response from a so-called Adobe Community Professional. When I called him on it, he replied, "I don't speak for Adobe." I would suggest that Adobe should make sure that's true. He certainly is not engaged in creating a helpful "community." I looked also at a number of his other interactions. Many of them have the same flavor of condescending abruptness, and don't really provide any help. If this were just…

  13. EXTREMELY SLOW Adobe Acrobat performance on Mac (re-reporting of common issue)

    I'd like to re-report a general issue with Adobe Acrobat running on Mac. While viewing simple PDFs (<1MB), without annotations, Adobe Acrobat has 1 to two second delays when scrolling, painfully slow performance, the program is basically unusable.

    I'm sure you are aware of this, because with a limited search I've seen multiple posts asking for help with this, most notably:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/acrobat-scrolling-is-incredibly-laggy-and-slow/m-p/10652846
    The issues brought up in this post fully summarize my problem -- and BEAUTIFULLY surmises a likely cause of these problems. However, while a recurrent issue, I've seen very little interest from your company in addressing it...

    I…

  14. Why does Adobe not allow payments with PayPal in Switzerland

    Why does Adobe not allow payments with PayPal in Switzerland?
    Such an important company and especially that we are nowadays all using different payments tools beside the classical credit cards, should be really updated. It is almost like a discrimination towards us and it is incomprehensible. Almost every company uses nowadays PayPal as tool and it does work perfectly

  16. Will not install

    Adobe Acrobat DC will not install on my computer (somewhat older mac with macOS Sierra operating system). I bought the license for Acrobat DC (with the 7 day free trial first) and the Creative Cloud interface downloaded on my computer but whenever I try to install acrobat (either from Google Chrome browser or from Creative Cloud directly) it says the installation was successful, but the app does not launch and the app does not exist on my hard drive when I search for it. On Creative Cloud, it invites me to install the app again. TL;DR: the system is saying…

  17. Override Creator's view preference

    A user's viewing preference should be able to override the creator's preference. I should not have to adjust my zoom preference every single time I open a new document or even select a new page from the bookmarks menu. The creator choosing a micro 43% zoom standard is stupid and forcing the reader to go through a bunch of extra unnecessary steps when you could just make the user preferences override those of the creator in terms of viewing formatting.

  18. Disable marketing emails for current and new employees

    We receive an extraordinary amount of Adobe marketing emails. There should be a way to disable marketing emails in the admin console for current users, but also a way to disable them upon creation of a new user.

  19. Edit PDF: Need an option to darken Faint Type in a Pre-typed Document.

    Pretyped document (received via email) that has Faint Type - Sometimes one page is faint, yet balance of pages is fine. Need option to Darken the faint type - best if can darken only the faint type (highlight faint type within a page to darken only faint type within a page) OR (darken type on only one of several pages) OR (darken type when all pages have faint type). Option within the Edit PDF Option. Without latter option to fix faint type within a PDF, the more complex option leads to reduced type quality (print, copy to darken, scan).

  20. Video not working on Acrobat DC

    Tools for Rich Media work fine for development when we add a video. It fails when we try to view the video added on Acrobat DC for Windows.

    Acrobat Reader can play the video fine on both the PC and Mac

    Acrobat DC Pro on the Mac version # 2021.005.20048 can create and play the video correctly.

    Acrobat DC Pro on Windows can create the PDF with Rich Media tools but it can not play the video. It may crash or it may do nothing. No video can be seen. I tried it both playing in the document or in…
