  1. Feature request: Resize page feature

    I don't know how this happened, but I exported a print out of a web page that was sized at 8.5x11 as a PDF, and when I opened the PDF in Adobe DC, somehow the page size turned into 13.17x16.78, and now when I print the PDF, it cuts out everything on the page that is outside of the 8.5x11 paper size. I have been trying and trying to just resize the PDF to 8.5x11, but I can't find this feature anywhere - and I've really been looking hard! So if there was a way you could add a feature…

    • Extract Pages - WITHOUT thumbnail view!

      Trying to select which pages to extract by clicking on thumbnails is next to impossible. Whoever thought of this system has never tried to extract multiple non-consecutive pages from a large document - they all look the same when shrunk to 1 inch tall. Can we just extract by highlighting bookmarks?

      • Default Pages Panel "ON"

        Create a setting in Preferences that defaults to:
        View | Show | Navigation Panes | Page Thumbnails
        so that thumbnails ALWAYS appear in the navigation pane and are never hidden unless done manually.

          Hi Frank

          Please try the following :
          Go to Preferences → Documents and check the option “Restore last view settings when reopening documents”

          Please let me know if this works for you.

        • crop

          Ctrl Alt T back please (cropping one page or all pages)

          I'm not sure why you took it out, or why you hid it, but I would really like it back! I use it monthly if not weekly for work and it is WAY easier than the new version. Maybe you thought we didn't use it, but we do :-)
          I have Acrobat 11, the full version. Please bring it back.

          thank you

          • Edit default split pages number or set it permanently to 1

            We often need to split a document into a single file per page. We almost NEVER split a document by every two pages.

            Having to edit this number each time is redundant. I would like the option to either edit the default "split by" setting (and additionally the output settings) or alternatively have the default be 1 page.

            • Thumbnail size reduction in Acrobat

              RE:Acrobat Professional ver. 2017 and DC

              In version 9 I was able to reduce the size of a thumbnail whereby I could view +/- 50 thumbnail pages alongside of a single page document view. According to tech support, this functionality is no longer available. If the only way to see more than +/- 5 thumbnails is to fill the screen with the thumbnail pane, then what is the point of thumbnails at all. I have attached a screen shot to show how I view a document.

              It would be extremely useful to bring back this basic functionality. Given that older…

                Hi Mike

                We have shared your concern with the team and we will look into this. In the meantime as you yourself mentioned, you can resize the thumbnails panel to a size where you can accommodate more thumbnails and can still see the document.
                Sorry for the inconvenience.

                Regards
                Vivek

              • Drag and drop in Organize is broken

                Whose stupid idea was it to make drag and drop also copy pages when in the organize pages tool? And then why doesn’t ctrl z undo that copy and reselect the pages? This is literally how everything else works.

                But somehow a slight slip in this program means I need to close the file, don’t save and reselect 200 pages again to delete them because of this.

                  Hi

                  We tried with several files and dragging does not copy the pages.
                  Is it specific to some files or is there a defined way to replicate it?
                  If file specific, can you please share the files with us?

                  This would help us investigate faster.

                  Thanks

                • 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.

                      I need to process large PDF files that are often sent to me with duplicate pages. Dupes are often very difficult to manually locate in a 3,000 page + Document.

                          Hi

                          You can try the following –
                          Go to Organize Pages App to move the pages you want to see next to each other.
                          Then go to View→Display Options and select Two pages.

                          Please let us know if this works for you.

                          Thanks

                        • Show page numbers in advanced search results

                          Problem: When doing an Advanced Search, in order to find out the page number of any given search result, you must hover the pointer over each individual search hit and wait for a popup of its page number to appear.

                          Feature request: Show the page numbers on which those hits occur, and preferably in a column to the left of each search hit.

                          Reason it's needed: This would save a tremendous amount of time for certain labor intensive tasks, for instance, manually indexing a book. To elaborate a bit: When manually indexing a large book (say, 500 pages), you regularly…

                                You can just add the more frequently tools to the Quick Tools on top. Alternately you can just search for the tool you need in the Search box in Right Hand Panel.

                                Please let us know if this helps.

                                The program needs an eraser (I've been telling Adobe techs this for years) If you need an example, download a trial version of Bluebeam Revu. Take a look at their crop, eraser, cut and flatten tools. You guys need to step up your game!

                                  Hi,
                                  The ability to flatten a pdf is basic and important. We have had an Adobe DC for 2 years now for our business with little in enhancement in feature. I an tired of having to search for a community java script to do a basic operation such as flatten a document. when our annual subscription expires in June 2018 we will be moving to Foxit for all our pdf requirement. Not only is it cheaper but it is full featured.

                                  • I'd like to be able to change the size of a single page. I combine documents with various page sizes and would to shrink larger ones

                                    I often combine sets of evidence documents that range in size from a single column of a newspaper to 1/2 page and would like to make the page sizes in the new document more uniform for easier scrolling.

                                    • Running optimization erased several bookmarks in my document

                                      I have a merged PDF document to which I added multiple bookmarks.

                                      When I run advanced optimization as I usually do, it removed half of my bookmarks.

                                      This has never happened before.

                                      This is a task that I perform every other month and has worked fine for years.

                                      We are running Windows 7, and have an Adobe CC team account.

                                      • Auto-rotate scanned documents to correct the page orientation

                                        While opening a pdf that was scanned in the wrong direction, an algorithm would detect which side was up and automatically rotate the document so you wouldn’t have to click rotate manually. This would be a big time saver.

                                        • Correcting dimensions of the boxes with + and - in "Set Page Boxes"

                                          In every Adobe program it is possible to correct sizes by adding a value with + or -. Why isn't it possible in Acrobat menu "Set Page Boxes"?

                                            Hi Sarah

                                            Can you please be little more specific?
                                            Are you talking about “Change Page Size” → “Custom” option where you want this functionality?

                                            Thanks
                                            Vivek
