  2. AutoSave

    You should be able to see if Autosave is active and toggle it on and off like we can in M365 applications.

  3. Open PDF-Files via MS-excel (2019) Hyperlink

    I have a lot of PDF- files in portrait format eg. bills.
    When I doubleklick these files with MS-file-Explorer then Acrobat shows these in a standard Window. When I use Excel hyperlinks to show these files they maximize the window. This makes no sence with a widescreen monitor. So I have to dobleklick at the upper border to show it in the way I like. I didn't find any way to solve that problem. When I install F...t-Reader instead, It works fine.
    So I don't think that this is an Excel based problem.
    I think it's very easy for you…

  4. Acrobat Pro DC Crashes as soon as it opens on Windows 10

    I have Acrobat Pro DC fully licensed which I have used for many years, but I now cannot use it as it crashes (just closes) as soon as I launch it every time. I have run the Acrobat repair, but this has not fixed it. Is this due to a Win 10 update? I am using Win 10 Pro (version 2004) build 19041.928, not running any other apps when acrobat crashes.

  5. Subscription Usage Report

    Good morning

    To ensure we are utilising our subscription and ensure users are making use of their licence I understand there is no usage reporting available i.e. when a user authenticates as they use Adobe DC Pro.

    Can I submit this is as a product request please? I appreciate it might not be Adobe's interest as this will enable subscribers to manage licence assignment more efficiently but this would be a great product feature.

    Thank you.

    Pete

  8. Flattening a PDF for print

    I'm getting no sensible suggestions on how to flatten a file for printing. This is one of the simplest and most basic of needs for the printing industry and I'm just staggered at the lack of clarity everywhere I look and whenever I ask. I work in Word to create artwork then convert this to a PDF but the existing pathway to flattening the file does not work and creates a chaotic image with bits missing and colours changed. How do I flatten a PDF???

  9. No option here to report bugs on software other than Acrobat. My bug is in Photoshop.

    The "lighting effects" filter no longer works! What's wrong?

  10. update ADMX/ADM Files

    Hello,

    I would like to see an update to the ADMX/ADM files for Adobe DC and other versions. It is a little bit of a hassle to try and find all the features and what can be done from an administrative space by looking through pages and trying to think of what we want and what can be done. The ADMX files that I was provided by support are really out of date and do not have things like turning off cloud storage. This could easily be done via some ADMX files, but since those are not updated with possible…

  11. Why does basic functionality in Acrobat Pro DC cause 11+ bloatware processes to run in the background?

    I finally bit the bullet and started paying for Acrobat, but the incredible number of mysterious background processes named things like "Creative Cloud Helper," "CCXProcess," "Core Sync," CCLibrary," "Adobe Desktop Service," and not one but 4 apps named "Core Sync Helper" are making me reconsider. They have worsened my battery life and I have security concerns about these ambiguously—named apps constantly dancing up and down my Activity Monitor. I refuse to believe they are necessary to view a PDF. I run MacOS Big Sur.

  12. Action Wizard skips the next document after pop up message

    I'm running Action Wizard to fixup several PDFs. When an error message pops up, I click OK to dismiss it. Then I click Start to resume the Action Wizard. The Wizard skips over the next document in the list and adds a check mark as though it processed. When the summary report displays, that document is missing as though it wasn't ever in the "Files to be processed:"

  13. Save all tabs at once

    Wish there was a feature to save all tabs at once. Currently you have to save each tab separately by being on that tab. It would be more efficient if this feature were to be implemented. Thank you.

  14. "Hover" event on buttons sometimes remains after mouse cursor leaves

    Bug related to viewing interactive PDFs.

    1. Make a PDF with a button in InDesign. Give it a different appearance when hovered by the mouse.
    2. Make multiple buttons like this next to each other (touching side-by-side) to make the problem much easier to recreate.
    3. Export as interactive PDF.

    When viewing in Acrobat DC, move the cursor accross the buttons. They show the "hover" appearance while the cursor is over a button, but if the cursor moves from one button to the next the appearance on the previous button often tends to "stick", so you end up with multiple buttons showing the…

  16. [Bug Repot] thermometer (progress bar) produces error when trying to change its value (i.e. progress the bar)

    Since the 2021 update (21.001.20135), there is an error when using multiple (overlaying) instances of the progress bar with JavaScript. Code that used to work before now generates an error.

    The error is:

    GeneralError: Operation failed.
    Thermometer.value:1:Console undefined:Exec
    

    To reproduce this, run the following code from the console (JavaScript Debugger):

    // Define the progress bar (thermometer) as a variable for easy reference
    var t = app.thermometer;
    // Start a progress bar
    t.begin();
    // Now start another progress bar
    t.begin();
    // Now end the top progress bar
    t.end();
    // Now try to set the incremental value of the progress bar
    t.value

  17. 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.

  18. Windows 10 64 bit for the whole world

    Your online chat says the current 32 bit supports both 32 and 64 bit architecture, which obviously it does but at only 32 bit ram usage meaning on my 64 bit machine it's slow. They also said you had a 64 bit that you released in some countries but not all. If the 32 supports both why do you have both>

  20. Pre-Made Standard Stamp for Plaintiff's Exhibits

    There needs to be a Standard Business stamp for lawyers. It should mimic the Exhibit labels we must use on documents that will become exhibits at trial. Most documents come to us now in digital form. It makes no sense to print them onto paper, place an Exhibit sticker on them, and then scan them back for submission to the court. We ought to be able to digitally put a stick on them from the Standard Stamp file, and then enter an exhibit number on each one. (Your Bates Stamp feature does this beautifully. Wish there were exhibit labels set…
