  2. [Bug Report] Clicking an option from a dropdown form field results in the wrong one being selected

    For a long time now I have noticed a peculiar bug that only sometimes rears its head. By now I'm pretty sure it is a bug and not something I'm doing wrong, as I've had this same issue appear in multiple AcroForms that I have made, all with different content.

    What happens is illustrated well with the screen recording I made, see the attached file.

    How to reproduce:

    • This is with an AcroForm drop-down field that has about 200 entries.
    • This drop-down field has the options "Allow user to enter custom text" and "Commit selected value immediately" selected.…

  3. Why did Acrobat change the UI to this simplistic, childish design? Terrible, slower to use.

    Acrobat Pro used to be seamless, easy to use and efficiently laid out. Now it looks like some child's puzzle game where you have to access numerous screens to accomplish what you used to be able to do from ONE PLACE.
    Maddening, dumb redesign that apparently was done for what? Tablet use? Why ruin something many of us use in professional settings so students and casual users can play around with their school prom flyer on mom's ipad?
    It is ugly and not at all intuitive. Clearly the project team didn't have anyone with institutional knowledge involved.

  5. BUG: text box trash can in the way and broke ability to add text to the box!

    Sometime in the last few days, Acrobat updated and starting adding a trash can icon whenever you create a text box. The trash can follows the cursor around, and makes it impossible to click in the box and get the text cursor so that you can actually type text in the box you just created. Either the trash can gets in the way so that you're accidentally clicking it, or the text cursor pops up for a fraction of a second and then reverts to the arrow icon. It's maddening.

  6. Bug - PDF Tag Panel does not match Reading Order Tool by marking all Tags as Span

    This issue of InDesign and Acrobat incompatibility in regards to Acrobat displaying all spans even when the Reading Order is correct has been around for over two years. We deserve to know what Adobe is doing about it.

    Acrobat Team acknowledges the problem and blames InDesign:

    "It's actually not an Acrobat issue, it's an issue with InDesign and how it's generating the Content that Acrobat is displaying correctly"

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/10005333#10005333

    InDesign Team acknowledges the problem and blames Acrobat:

    "You'd have to talk to the Acrobat team about why they display in the Tags panel the way they do." - Adobe

  7. The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons missing from tool bar.

    The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons, and the zoom percentage text box disappeared from my toolbar, and I can't get them back. These controls are only accessible through the menus or the undocked floating panel. Re-docking the panel doesn't bring these controls with it. Right-click "Show Select & Zoom Tools" doesn't even list them.

  8. GET RID OF 'WHO NEEDS TO SIGN FIRST' SCREEN

    I am not sure why there is now a screen after I press the fill & sign button that asks who needs to fill and sign first, but it is just 1 more step, one more click I have to make before signing each document I open - very inconvenient. This extra step also seems to slow down the time it takes adobe to open and prepare my document for any sort of editing.

    Hi All,

    Fill and Sign and Adobe Sign (formerly known as Send for Signature) are now consolidated into a single Sign tool where you can either fill & sign a document or get a document signed from others. It includes a simplified experience that asks you who needs to fill and sign first: you or others and then walks you through the steps to complete the task. It’s the one place for all your form filling and signature needs. For detailed information, you may refer to the article What’s new in Adobe Acrobat DC

    This is designed behavior, I will check with the team and will share an update soon.

    Thanks for your time and patience on this.

    Regards,
    Sandeep Grover

  9. Please add "Add Stamp" button to the customize quick toolbar pane

    I would like to be able to add a dynamic stamp to the quick access toolbar, but I am not able to accomplish this. Please see attached Adobe Version and the current quick toolbar. Is this not possible with Adobe DC Pro?

  11. Acrobat DC crashes hourly Running Mojave

    Adobe Acrobat DC is just an awful counter-productive tool now in Mojave. It crashes hourly (if not more often) just doing normal very simple tasks that I would normally be able to do in previous Mac OS. It doesn't matter if Im just reviewing a pdf made by someone else, creating a PDF from INDD, adding notes to a supplied PDF, etc etc etc ... it just constantly crashes. No warning, no error, just crash... program just quits out. So counter productive now its killing us as a company. PLEASE FIX!!!

  12. Hide the new black box when a comment is selected

    The new black box (when a comment is selected) gets in the way and obscures the page contents. Add the option in Preferences to turn it off or hide it.

  13. Consistency Placing Stamps and Signatures

    Hello, I've already had a conversations with one of your representatives, Tanvi Bhalla. She suggested I go this route. If at all possible we would utilize a feature that allows consistency in the placement of signatures and stamps. While the grid feature does help, it is not consistent. We use documents that require signatures and stamps in the same exact locations. It would be beneficial if this could be done electronically and documents look more professional if they are consistent. Maybe a function that allows you to snap to the exact same coordinates every time. I see that there is…

  14. Ctrl+F -- Highlight Existing Search Text When Doing a New Find

    In previous versions the Ctrl+F box would appear and you would type your text and hit enter. When searching your next text using the Ctrl+F shortcut would automatically highlight the last search text so you could automatically start typing your new 'find' text. With the new update, it doesn't highlight the last search text, instead it puts the cursor at the end of your last text making you backspace the text or stop and click to highlight the text. This is a huge efficiency loss!! Please help!

    Hi Jan,

    From the logs it looks like the issue is intermittent in your machine. Please confirm it that’s the case.

    Meanwhile can you apply the below registry and confirm if that fixes the issue?

    o Path: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown
    o DWORD Key: bDisallowDLLUnload
    o Value: 1

  16. import-export option in acrobat to translate files using xliff or xml

    We are looking for years a way to export an xliff or intermediate file like XML from adobe acrobat, translate it and import it back.

    Could you add an option like this in future releases?

    Thanks!

  18. Changing Default Tools on new menu

    I like the quick-access to the Tools in Acrobat, but please allow us to select WHICH 4 tools we see. The defaults are Create PDF, Export PDF, Fill&Sign, and Protect, but in my workflow, I almost never use these tools. I use Edit PDF, Combine Files, Organize Pages, and Prepare Form daily, and would very much like to have these on my front page.
    Also, I have the Mobile app already. How do I get rid of the ad asking me to download it?
