  1. Freeze Issue When Zooming with Scroll Wheel

    When zooming with the scroll wheel, Acrobat freezes and I get a spinning beach ball. The files I am working with are not large, but they do consist of lots of lines/content streams sometimes. If anyone can offer support for this, it would be greatly appreciated. I encounter this issue multiple times a day and it appears to happen only if I am trying to zoom with the wheel right after it opens and Acrobat is still trying to load the creative cloud profile, or when I have been working in the file for a period of time and try…

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    Kindly share with us your machine details and Acrobat version.
    Also please provide us some sample files on which you are facing this issue

  2. 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.

  3. add a shortcut key to execute an Action Wizard or make it available in the top menu or screen. Currently many clicks are needed to start it.

    The ability to add a shortcut key to execute an Action Wizard
    If that is to difficult to make it available in the top menu or screen. Currently many clicks are needed to start it.
    My next question is to be able to close the file which was transformed by the Action Wizard, but CTRL+W is okay as well.

  5. Adobe Digital Editions - Enable Windows Arrow Keys for scrolling page, navigating

    This is a request for Adobe Digital Editions. Navigatng in the reader would be much easier if arrow keys were enabled OR if you could select between trackpad to select and trackpad to scroll.

  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…

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Bug in Acrobat's calculation of exponential (Type2) function

    Hi,

    Attached files show a severe bug in calculation of a simple Type2 (exponential interpolation) function in all Acrobat versions, including the latest DC beta.

    The only difference between the 2 files is the type of function used to implement the simple function ‘y = 1 – x’ to accomplish a TR function on a SoftMask that inverts the values.

    The one that is correctly rendered is InvertingTRasType4.pdf which uses a Type 4 (PS) calculator function type with operators:
    { 1 exch sub }

    The one that is completely wrong is InvertingTRasType2.pdf which uses a Type…

  16. 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.

  18. The PDF file will be collapse after saving the file and reopening it.

    Tested with Acrobat DC and PitStop Pro.
    Run the attached action and save your random PDF.
    Reopen the PDF file and the interface will now be collapsed.

  20. 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.
