  1. add the split option to the "tools to add" in Action Wizard.

    Please add the split option to the "tools to add" when creating a new Action Wizard action.

    This would allow for automated actions to be created where split top level bookmarks using bookmark names for file names utilized as part of a action, so it wouldn't be necessary to physically go through the setup process of: Organize Pages/Split/Split by: Top level bookmarks/Output Options/Use bookmark names for file names.

    • change default folder for saving extracted pages

      When extracting pages from a multiple-page pdf, change the default folder from "user" to "documents". That saves several clicks.

      • 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.

        • Cut, copy and paste option to move pages within a pdf file

          It will be very useful to have a cut/copy and paste option for moving pages within a pdf file. Currently, you can only drag pages around and this can be a little bit messy especially if working on a large file.

          • Present all pages as thumbnail in full screen

            It would be great to be able to view all pages on screen at the same time, as big as possible, during a full screen presentation. Think moodboard or contact sheet. I am a graphic designer and for my presentations, I create a final page that is all of my designs as large thumbnails on a page so that I can discuss all of them. Stepping it up a notch would be allowing the user to click on one of the pages and it getting bigger than the rest.

            • 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…

                Thanks for the feature request. Feature to resize a PDF page size is already present in Acrobat. Please visit https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/how-to-resize-pages-in-a-pdf-using-acrobat-dc. Please note that you can only increase the page size but there is no option for scaling down a PDF page to a smaller size.

                For your problem, we can suggest a workaround. Print it to a new PDF file (print to Adobe PDF printer with Acrobat DC) with page size “Letter” which will create a PDF with 8.5×11 page size. Please let us know if this works for you.

                Thanks,
                -amboo

                Would like to have the "rotate left" and "rotate right" buttons available in Acrobat Standard XI. The 3 step rotate page system is clunky.

                    • DC 2017.012.20095 cannot delete page 1 of certain files

                      When we open certain PDF documents and go to organise pages we cannot delete page 1. (This affects other functions that try to delete pages too). Please contact me if more files are needed.

                      The error is "One or more pages are in use and cannot be deleted".

                      • Headers and footers should use document's page labels instead of inventing page labels

                        I want to suggest an improvement to Acrobat Professional:

                        When adding headers or footers to a document, I suggest that the mechanism use the document's page numbers, instead of inventing its own.

                        For example, my document has page numbers A.1 through A.29 followed by B.1 through B.7 followed by C.1 through C.6 ... followed by V.1 through V.11.

                        Right now, it seems that the only way I can get the actual page numbers to accurately appear in the footer is Add 22 different footers. That's an onerous task.

                        • Resize PDFs

                          Ability to change 'page size' on existing pdfs.

                          I work in Construction and receive a lot of scale drawings, usually created from tools like AutoCAD. Often enough the designer doesn't select the correct options when plotting to pdf - meaning that the page size on the pdf is not correct (ie a PDF shows as A3, but needs to be printed at A1 for the scale to work correctly). This causes issues with document control (ie individuals may unwittingly print at the wrong size), but also means that the measure tool is giving false results as the scale is not…

                            If you want supporting screen shots or more detail, please contact me.
                            Jyotika at Acrobat Help <adchelp@adobe.com> has my eMail and tele#

                            1. Combine files into a Binder always FORCES the default to be filename sequence.
                            The User should NOT be forced to move HUNDREDS of files in a large document
                            just to get them in the proper sequence.

                            Yes, there is the "Move Up/Down" option which works on each file ONE AT A TIME.
                            However, has anyone on the Acrobat team actually tried to do that to resequence
                            over 1,000 pages into an absolutely different non-alpha result???…

                              These two icons do 2 completely different functions from one another. They have appeared the same for ages now. I think it is finally time to create a new Icon look for one or the other. Having both on my quick tools is rather daunting because they look exactly the same.

                              • Extract a part of a PDF page as a new PDF file

                                Allow an option to extract a part of a PDF page and save as a new file so it is a new file only showing what you want. This would be similar to cropping and then print to PDF the cropped page to eliminate the extra file size. The key is to keep the original file resolution / clarity.

                                  I seem to having a lot of trouble saving PDF files through Acrobat Reader. This has only been an issue the past week. I was receiving them and able to use the "save as" feature but when i go to save them now this feature is no longer available. WHY?

                                      Thanks for writing to us.

                                      Can you please elaborate on the problem you are facing? I translated the text from your problem description and it just mentions the error message “The requested operation can not be completed. I can not initialise the text engine”.
                                      Also, it would be great if you could respond in English.

                                      Thanks,
                                      -Amboo

                                      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.

                                      • Tags Disappear on page Template

                                        I have a two-page form that was properly tagged until I turned page 2 into a template (Organize Pages -> More -> Page Templates) and made it invisible. Even after I made the page visible again, the page 2 tags were nowhere to be found. Any suggestions on how to recover them or keep them from disappearing in the future?


                                        BTW, I'm using Word 2013 and Acrobat Pro DC.

                                        • 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

                                            In Acrobat DC, the shortcut on Windows is Ctrl+Shift+P
                                            In Acrobat 11, the shortcut is just C. Please try pressing C and then double click (left mouse button) on document.

                                            Please try and let us know if it works for you.
