  1. Bug with % symbols in named destinations

    When entering a named destination (for linking to within a PDF), it's impossible to enter a percentage sign ("%", U+0025). The symbol simply disappears from the name once entered.

    It's possible it's being misinterpreted as a formatting specifier in a printf call (or something similar).

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open a document and select "Edit PDF"
    2. Click the bullseye-icon in the left-most pane ("Destinations")
    3. Click "Create New Destination"
    4. Type "Bug%Test" and press Enter
    5. Note the result is "BugTest" instead of the expected "Bug%Test"

    Here's an animated screen-capture (which was too large to upload as an attachment): …

  2. "Copy Image" or "Save Image as..." don't work correctly for one specific image in my file

    I use Acrobat Version 2015.023.20070 on Windows and the functions "Copy Image" and "Save Image as..." - when selecting an image inside a pdf - work correctly in all cases so far, except:

    Except for this specific diagram image at the bottom of the pdf slide attached, where the result is just a distorted part of the original image. I can reproduce the results. Note that if I use "Save Image as..." the resulting file is different from what I get when I use "Copy Image" and paste it into MS Word or MS Paint or Photoshop.

    This pdf slide…

  4. Loops don't function properly when using the variable 'c' as the loop counter

    Javascript loops don't function properly when using the variable 'c' as the loop counter, e.g.

    for(var c=0;c<10;c++) {
    //this code would run more than 10 times
    }

  5. Redaction - similar to overlay text, have an "overlay image" option

    The redaction properties allow you to specify custom "overlay text" on redaction marks.
    This request is to add a feature for "overlay image" to have an image included on the redaction marks.
    Thanks

  6. Action Wizard causes crash

    I've created an Action Wizard that does the following:
    -Runs Preflight to convert to PDF/A-1a
    -Saves to a Local Folder, appending "_A-1a" to the end of the file name.

    That's it. I can run this Action Wizard on individual PDFs no problem. But when I use the "Add Files..." option to run this wizard on multiple files, the Action Wizard begins, but crashes Acrobat after the first file. This has been the case for the last few updates to Acrobat DC (15.23.20056.213124), but did used to work with Acrobat DC and previous versions of Acrobat. This is on macOS 10.12.3.

  7. At opening of Pro DC, the Recent tab only searches the last location only

    When using the Recent function to find a previously created PDF it would better that the program searches the entire computer for the file. I scan documents to Desktop first and, when done, move it to the appropriate file. With this new program I have to use other venue to search instead of the convenient Recent function. My older version was able to find the file regardless of where it is saved.

  8. Netgear Router login not working

    Why is the Netgear router login not secure?
    The web access of a Netgear router is encrypted with HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) to keep the functions of the router secure. When you try to access the login page of the Netgear router, the browser prompts you to verify if the router is secure. The router's self-signed certificates encrypt the data transferred in the domain. When self-signed certificates are present, the router's web access is not secure. Add the self-signed certificates to make the router's web access secure. Let's see why the Netgear router login is not secure and the…

  10. MEASURE

    When using measurement tool, the holding the "SHIFT" key to maintain a straight measurement to a parallel feature, shows the dimension in an angled configuration. Cannot find a way to show the measurement label properly. This should be a very basic functionality of the measurement tool.

  12. When PDF thumbnails are enabled in Acrobat DC, Explorer starts crashing in Windows 10.

    This is a bug report. It starts as soon as you enable thumbnails in Acrobat DC (or earlier also). Explorer.exe starts crashing. Screenshot attached. Removing thumbnails fixes the issue.

  13. Measure in both feet and inches

    Currently when measuring in a PDF, Acrobat only gives the measure measurement in feet (i.e. 20.5 feet). It would be nice if Acrobat, in lieu of providing the measurement in a fraction of a foot, used a combination of both feet and inches (i.e. 20 feet 6 inches).

  17. Using the Geospatial Distance Tool hangs Acrobat

    When using the Geospatial Distance Tool with certain files, Acrobat sometimes goes into a busy state (dimmed window, spinning cursor) for long periods of time.

    If you wait, it eventually comes back, but it can be a long wait in certain cases. I have two files that cause this problem.

    Worth noting: if you turn off 'Path Intersections' in the 2D Snap Settings preference group, the issue still happens, but is greatly reduced.

  18. Change the design to follow industry standard, to be more intuitive

    the Design is very poor, why don't you change the menus, and submenus per Industry standard, to make it more intuitive.

  19. Start-up issue on Mac

    I have Acrobat Pro DC as part of a Creative Cloud subscription. Running on MacBook Pro under OS X High Sierra 10.13.6.
    For several weeks I've had the issue that when starting the app, usually by opening a PDF, there is a interval of a minute or more when it is unresponsive. The document is slow to appear. The Mac process indicator appears (spinning rainbow disc). The delay is quite aggravating. It only happens on the first document opened in a session.
    If I quit the app and reopen it, the same thing occurs.
    This behavior started recently; and the…
