  1. Contacting clients

    Note to Adobe:

    When your support members are trying to contact clients,

    1) Always leave a voicemail when contacting by phone if the person cannot be reached at that time. I get 5-10 scam calls a day, and do not answer the phone for any number I do not recognize. If a number calls me repeatedly and does not leave a voicemail, I BLOCK IT. It doesn't help if you don't leave at least a voicemail identifying yourself. And you should have a number for that person to Call Back.

    2) Do not request a response to an email from…

  2. Thumbnail display

    It is very nice to have implemented the thumbnail view of Acrobat documents in the Windows explorer.

    There are nevertheless three bugs:
    - Their display is very (too) slow: why not incorporating directly this thumbnail (as the corresponding option in MS Word) in the file itself?
    - The thumbnails are square, which means that they display blank artificial borders (vertical or horizontal, depending of the orientation of the first page)
    - Very often, these thumbnails are black, thus unusable (see attached screenshot).

    Thank you to correct these bugs in a future update.

  4. Being able to change the order of files in a portfolio. How do I get an older version of Acrobat Pro?

    I can't reorder files in a portfolio. I'd like to purchase an older version of Acrobat Pro, please, that supports reordering portfolio document contents.

  5. BUG Acrobat 2019.008.20080 does not apply action to all pages

    BUG Acrobat DC 2019.00820080 no longer applies action to all pages even though the setting for all pages it selected. This action has been working for over a year but since updating to 2019 it appears to be broken. In the attached file the water mark should appear on both pages.

  6. PDF won't open from Windows Explorer after a different PDF is opened from inside Madcap Flare

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat DC and MadCap Flare 2018 r2 on a Windows 10 operating system.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Build a PDF in Flare.
    2. Open the PDF from inside Flare.
    3. Double-click on a different PDF in Windows Explorer.

    Expected result: Second PDF opens.
    Actual result: Second PDF does not open. The error message that shows up sometime later says: Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE server.

    MadCap support has been unable to resolve the issue.

  8. Stop with the popups! I do not need these stupid interruptions to my work.

    I am working, and do not have time to invest in accepting or rejecting your popup leads for new Adobe products or tutorials. Send an email with this information. Adobe has lost most of its dignity as a solutions provider. There is a new ambulance chaser in Software City.

  10. Plugin doesn't support metric measurements in settings dialog (Firefox)

    The Acrobat Firefox (and most likely Chrome, etc.) plugin's settings dialog for page size isn't localized for metric support and only displays units in inches and not millimetres. Please fix this ASAP. We are not all American.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing.
    Can you please details the issue you are facing.
    Can you share with us the acrobat version and the operating system you are using
    also can you share with us some sample PDFs with which you are facing this issue.

  12. Acrobat DC crashes, then toolbar reverts back to default.

    I mostly use the Edit or Prepare Form tools. While I'm updating my document, Acrobat crashes at random times. There is nothing consistent, it just seems to be more finicky after the most recent update. After it crashes, I reopen it and the customized toolbar on the right has reverted back to the default tools. This is very inconvenient and happens several times a day while editing or preparing a document. Is this a known issue and is there a fix for this?

  13. Cannot send email while Outlook Plugin is enabled.

    When I attach a PDF to an email I am unable to send the email because outlook says it has been modified. Disabling the Acrobat plugin seems to fix it.

  14. When the Reduced Size option is used, the white area in images should not be changed to a a mottled light gray.

    When the Reduced Size option is used, the white area in images should not be changed to a a mottled light gray. Technical Support couldn't tell me how to fix this---even a Supervisor. I have to take the time to experiment to find out if this can be resolved using the PDF Optimizer which is wasteful of my time.

  17. 20074 action wizard & javascript not working

    After the update to 20071 and 20074 the action wizard and javascript features fail to work correctly, I am no longer able to run my action wizard functions because everytime I try to do so, I get the error stating "Failed to Load an Application Resource (internal error)".

    For example, I'm no longer able to import or export any new actions as a result of the error. Whenever I import something, the system searches for the import file then doesn't do anything after the file is selected.

  19. Allow option for Acrobat Pro DC to run locally

    Since going to Cloud Acrobat Pro DC, much much slower than X pro running locally on PC. We are a small local government utility. Can't imagine using this in a business sense...
    Also doesn't play well with Outlook 2013. Add-ins issues

  20. Why does Adobe ask me to login in now EVERYTIME that I open a document? This slows my computer down - and all I want to do is view doc.

    This slows my computer down and really bogs things in general. Then when I opt out of sign in, Adobe does what I want anyway.... After I have closed two windows to get to the actual doc.
