  1. Boolean with Exact Phrase(s)

    Greetings, dear colleagues!

    I want to use Advanced Search of the Acrobat XI in order to perform the following search query:
    cat AND "barking dog"

    However by trials and errors I found that this syntax does not work in Boolean query mode of the Advanced Search.

    It would be great to have such simple, but extremely useful search option

    Thank you.

    Thanks again for reporting

  2. Bug: Save as not working: "The File may be read-only, or another user may have it open.

  3. 3d connexion 3d mouse useability of zoom feature

    In previous versions of Adobe Acrobat / reader you could use a 3d mouse (3dconnexion) to zoom and navigate a document. This is very helpful on larger drawing type documents where you want to move around and zoom in. I noticed that the 3d mouse does work to scroll up and down a text type document. Are there any plans to integrate zoom and pan features?

    Choose View > Zoom > Pan & Zoom, or click the Pan & Zoom tool in the Select and Zoom toolbar.

    Do any of the following:
    1.Drag the handles of the box in the Pan & Zoom window to change the document magnification.

    2.Drag the center of the box to pan across the area you want to see.

    3.Click the navigation buttons to move to a different page.

  6. Emailed Receipts

    Automatically email receipts each time the payment processes for the account. It's an inconvenience to have to log in each month to manually download the receipt or manually click "email receipt" to myself.

  8. Horizontal scrolling of all pages in a .pdf to view multiple pages

    Often, I need to view certain successive pages side by side.
    However, Acrobat will only allow two page view to view pages 1 & 2 or 3 & 4. It will not allow viewing 2 & 3 side by side. (Imagine a user manual that has a two page chart on pages 2 & 3.) (This makes sense because page 1 is often on the right side of a book, making 2 & 3 open next to each other.)
    It would be helpful to stack pages horizontally and scroll continuously through them.

  9. IDP initiated SSO Authentication

    Currently Adobe only supports SP initiated SSO authentication. We would like our users to be able to go directly from IDP initiated. This is a basic feature of most IDP services and would be great to have.

  11. Acrobat DC is slow

    Acrobat DC is very slow to view the files. Checking the separations and toggling 2 documents. It would be great, if you work on this. Slowness is very much frustrating.

  12. Measuring tool font

    i would like to be able to change the font color used with the measuring tool. sometimes what i am marking up has a black or dark background and the black default font does not show up. The work around is to label on top of the measuring line font which is messy and does not look professional. Please make this enhancement, thank you.

  15. I want to compare documents that are signed. I want to identify the differences - !!! Not change them !!! Why is this not available?

    I want to compare signed documents. I don't want to change them - just compare to identify changes. Been beating my head against the wall and I cannot understand the logic that prevents using compare.

    Hi,

    Greetings! I am sorry to hear that you are facing issues with the compare feature.
    It would be great if you could help us with a few queries that will help us in investigating the bug:
    - What is the version of Acrobat Pro and the OS that you are using currently?
    - Could you please share the workflow that you’re using while using the Compare tool?
    - Could you please share some sample files with us so that we could reproduce the issue at our end?

    For info on how to share the files with us, please read the steps below :

    To share the file using Adobe send – cloud.acrobat.com/send
    - Open the above mentioned link
    – Click on “Select files to Send”
    – Click link “Choose file from my computer” and Select the file
    – Click on “Add Files”, if you have more files to add…

  16. Acrobat hangs when internet connection is unreliable (timeouts)

    My Internet connection was unreliable (there were a lot of timeouts) due to a partial outage at my ISP. This caused Acrobat DC to hang immediately upon opening it (I suppose because it couldn't reach some server). Switching to a more reliable connection fixed the problem immediately.

    Adobe, you should make Acrobat more resilient against unreliable Internet connections. Not being able to open PDF files due to a spotty connection is unacceptable.

  17. BUG: Save as does not work with OneDrive for Business, keep asking for AdminConsent

    If i want to save a document to Microsoft OneDrive for Busines, therefore I need to add a storage account. Selecting OneDrive for Business requires me to enter an Admin Consent to give the required permission for the AzureAD Enterprise Application.

    By entering the admin credentials of a O365 Global Admin it does not work as an unexpected consent prompt entered in the Adobe Acrobat Enterprise Application for AzureAD is causing the error.

    Documentation of Microsoft to fix the issue by requesting the individual user consent:

    Causes for Unexpected Consent Prompt:

  18. What happened to the +/- Zoom?

    What happened to the +/- zoom function? I need the ability to manually input the % of a zoom when comparing files; so that I am comparing "apples" to "apples" when it comes to the percentage size the the zooms. Why does it seem that every new version of Acrobat worse than the previous version?
