  1. Opening pdfs to display separately

    In my work I open and compare and edit multiple documents at the same time, this used to be easy because each pdf opened separately on one click, so I could very quickly have them all open and work between all of them at the same time using alt/tab between them all quickly. Now though pdfs all open in the same window mimicking an internet browser. So you have to click on each and then drag it out to a different part of your screens before you can start alt/tab-ing between them. It's slowing me down and I can't be…

  2. Feedback forum HORRIBLY organized!

    I want to share feedback on Acrobat DC. (1) The feedback forum won't even load at the bottom of the DC page. So I'm submitting this on the "Windows and Mac" page. (2) I'd like to see if my issue has already been submitted, so I can comment there instead of posting it as a new issue. I can search for issues, but not by version; the search results are for all versions. I've now wasted nearly half an hour just trying to figure out where to post my issue, and whether my issue has already been posted. Ugh.

  3. Acrobat crashes on malformed PDF from Apple Preview macOS X 10.14.2: stray /Pg keys in tagged PDF

    This bug report was submitted to Apple on 2019-01-17 (Apple bug iD 47350683). As it has masssive impact on user experience in Acrobat (unable to save / save as, regardless whether anything was edited in Acrobat; crashing when opening or having open the Tags panel) I am sharing this here:

    Summary:
    When saving out a tagged PDF opened in Preview, Preview/Quartz seems to rewrite the whole PDF structure and - while doing so - messes up the data structures below the StructTreeRoot entry in the Catalog dictionary. For leaf objects inside the StructTreeRoot tree structure, a "Pg" entry is required…

  5. Export measurement markup to excel incorrectly

    I use Acrobat Pro DC 2018.011.20040 version to do take-off quantity and when I export to csv file (use right click when you're in measure distance mode). It looks like all the numbers are shown incorrectly. Have anyone known how to fix or had the same problem? Cheers

  6. Solid color rectangles from InDesign PDF export show up as see-through in Acrobat DC

    When I export a pdf with solid black (100%K) rectangles above an image from InDesign. opening the PDF in Acrobat DC shows the rectangles as see-through when they shouldn't be. Opening the PDF in Reader or Google Chrome it shows solid... However a solid green rectangle shows solid in Acrobat DC. Exporting with High Quality and Print Press presents it ends up see-through.

  7. Early termination fees is not justifiable

    I downloaded free trial version & forgot to cancel. So I dont mind paying for the period software was installed on my laptop, although totally unused.

    However you are charging me 2 months i.e. $32 for early termination is not ethical.

    I used your trial version only for compressing ONE pdf file & now end up paying $64 for just that.

  8. Acrobat Pro DC shuts down

    Acrobat Pro DC shuts down if you try to have two documents open at the same time and also when you try to open a document that it is in a previous version of Adobe. This just started happening last week. My software is up to date.

  13. Acrobat MacOS build 19.10.20069.311970 cannot open Microsoft Outlook after Mojave upgrade even when given permission.

    It's a bug. Cannot open a new Outlook email from inside of Acrobat. Worked up until Mojave, now got a request for permission. Acrobat switches to Outlook, but then errors out with a vague error, no information.

  20. Acrobat crashing and wants to reopen previous windows/documents almost every time. Mac OS X Mojave.

    Pretty much every time I open Acrobat, I get a window asking me if I want to restore the previous documents, because Acrobat had crashed the last time (but I didn't notice this -- I quit it manually and no notification of a crash until the next time I start up).
