  2. Adobe Acrobat Pro bug

    When opening a pdf file on Adobe Acrobat Pro (and some other times, just after launching Adobe Acrobat Pro), the app occasionally stops working and the cursor turns to spinning rainbow for a few minutes. Sometimes (after a long while) the app resumes its functions, other times it does not and I'm forced to force-quit the application and re-launch it.

    1. Launch Adobe Acrobat Pro / Open a pdf file on Acrobat Pro
    2. Mac Pro (Late 2013) (OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6)
    3. Proper Function
    4. Application crashes and / or freezes

    Here is the report I'm getting when I force-quit the…

  3. Rich Media > too few Player Control options.

    Acrobat Pro DC, Continuous Release | Version 2021.005.20058

    ALL or NONE is not enough. In previous versions, we had more player control options in the drop-down list. See this video in forum post from May 2022.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/re-doesn-t-show-video-controls-to-play-and-stop-branched-amp-moved-from-acro-reader/m-p/12071983#M314407

    What happened to the other options?

    There is no way to stop the video once it starts playing. That's terrible for usability reasons.

    Please bring back more player control options.

  4. 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.

  5. DISABLE DOWNLOAD

    For the european GPDR rules it would be greate when sending a file with Send and track to disable the download option. So receivers can only view the file from the Adobe cloud but they cannot download it.

  6. "Content preparation progress" takes too long

    Whenever opening pdf file, Acrobar Pro DC always shows a window titled as 'content preparation progress". This takes too long and blocks file content & makes hard to read file content.
    Sometimes several minutes, sometimes forever!
    This needs to be improved.

  7. Out of Memory Error/Draw Error

    I am running Adobe Acrobat DC on a Windows 7 machine with 16GB of RAM and an NVidia NVS 310 Graphics Card. I have no issues regarding visual display or memory with other software. When running Adobe Acrobat DC, I frequently encounter issues where the file/program crashes, giving an error that it is Out of Memory or encountering a Draw Error. This has happened while reading multiple different PDF files, usually after I have been scrolling through the file for a short time. Usually, when this message occurs the page displays as a blank white page, and if I continue…

  8. Adjustable Graphic scale set for Measure tool.

    As an architect or an engineer, we are always managing plans with different scales that have (usually) a graphic scale for reference. The measure tool would be EXTREMELY useful if includes an option to set the scale by selecting two points on an eventual graphic scale included within an existing pdf... this will help to quickly have the pdf in scale and ready to be measured.

    Please, include this feature.

  10. Remove Document Cloud Feature

    Due to corporate policy, we are not allowed to use external servers, Document Cloud is such a server. Our documents are not to be loaded to any external servers.
    Can we have the ability to remove the Document Cloud from view or code-wise?
    We can not have our confidential documents going to Adobe's servers.

  12. tag

    I would like to add tags to PDF files that are inside of a Windows folder and be able to filter by tags.
    At the moment, the naming convention organises the PDF files in an order that is not beneficial for us.
    Can we add tags to PDF files and filter inside of a Windows folder?

  13. 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?

  14. 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?

  15. Acrobat Pro DC hangs (Not Responding) at first run.

    Win 10 x64 1709
    Classroom/lab environment.
    New-to-machine user, in other words, newly created user profile, extremely common in a classroom/lab environment.
    Licensed via ETLA AdobeSerialization.exe
    Installation package modified using Acrobat Customization Wizard DC

    If a user runs Acrobat straight-away, Acrobat.exe hangs and shows a "not responding" status before the Acrobat UI is displayed.

    After killing the Acrobat.exe process, subsequent launches work.

    If a new-to-the-machine user launches then closes Google Chrome AND Microsoft Edge BEFORE running Acrobat then runs Acrobat, Acrobat launches without issue.

    Disabling Protected View via policy has no effect.

    No errors are displayed.

    There are no discernable errors…

  16. PDF Maker Add-In for Outlook in MacOS

    Please develop an add-in for the MacOS environment that provides the same functionality as the PDF Maker add-in for MS Outlook in the PC world. I relied on the feature for archiving email communications & attachments while using a PC, but no longer have the capability on a Mac.

  18. Set default scale for Measure Tool

    Ability to set the default scale (other than 1=1) for all future PDF docs.
    AND the ability to set the scale for each individual PDF docs that will remain assigned to that PDF even if you exit Adobe Acrobat and re-open it. I'm an engineer, and work with various different scales, so it would be very beneficial for each PDF, if the user set scale would remain locked with each document, so you don't have to re-establish the scale after exiting and re-opening Adobe Acrobat.
