  1. Bug Report - Acrobat Pro DC hangs on external Javascript editor

    I’m trying to edit Javascript in an external editor. This has worked for years until just now. I’ve tried Brackets and TextWrangler with the same failure. Acrobat launches the external editor, and waits until the editor process is no longer running. This means that you actually have to quit the editor after saving the document in order to make Acrobat respond to your input again. This is fine, it has always worked in the past. But now when I quit the external editor, Acrobat remains unresponsive because it's waiting for the external editor to close, even though it’s already closed.

  2. Acrobat DC crashes when clicking Edit PDF

    The crash is persistent across all user accounts on this windows 10 computer. I tried checking for updates (none available), repair uninstallation, re-installation, and a clean uninstall using the Adobe cleanup tool. I originally suspected Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit which has been on the computer for over a year, so I uninstalled it but the behavior persists. The faulting module is IDRSKRN15.DLL.

  3. Editing Arabic text in pdf leads to corrupted pdf

    We discovered a word that need to be replaced during our final pdf output from Framemaker so we edited the pdf. Once we copied the Arabic word from our excel spread sheet the entire book became corrupted by scrambling letters, changing font appearances and reversing parenthesis and other characters. Need this fixed.

  4. Acrobat Pro DC - Sometimes Holds Lock on File after closing it

    Hi,

    Arobat Pro DC closes file OK, but sometimes appears to keep the file locked against changes in Windows (Win10, 64bit, fully updated May2020) etc

    Win 10 \ Windows Explorer is prevented from modifying the parent folder name (for example).

    Does not always happen. Closing Acrobat Pro DC appears to release the file (in that it allows changes to the filepath etc using Windows Explorer etc).

    This is similar to issue reported usign Acrobat READER.

    The Windows Preview tab is NOT showing
    (that Win10 bug (?) is a known issue, but relevant here).

    Regards
    L

  5. Bring Back F2 to Rename Bookmarks

    F2 used to rename bookmarks. It now opens a help menu - to rename bookmarks you now have to use CTRL+F2 which is barely faster than just using the mouse. This has destroyed my usual workflow, no one asked for it. Change it back.

  6. F2 Key Remap

    Changing the default behavior of the "F2" is the possibly the most annoying feature Adobe has ever released. I'm not being hyperbolic, there was no reason to remap F2 to the help center when F1 already worked in that way.

    Additionally adding second key to the keyboard command to rename reduces the functionality of this program. When I'm editing a PDF, I am constantly editing text making me click "Ctrl+F2" is more effort and goes against common convention.

  7. Add a custom external program link to the "Edit using" submenu

    Sometime the Edit mode of Acrobat is useful to extract vectorial graphics from a page. Once selected the elements in the page you do a right click and the last item on the context menu is "Edit using".
    Depending on the selection the submenu will propose "Microsoft Paint" for raster images or Acrobat for graphic elements. Other that this choice on the submenu there is "Open with..." that let you select an executable file to which pass as a parameter the path of a temporary PDF document that contains only the selection.
    It will be useful to have more than…

  8. CRSIPNESS OF LINES DEMINISHED ONCED REDACTED

    The redact tool was updated in Acrobat DC.Now when I go to redact a blueprint and apply the changes, it makes the entire file a little blurry. This never happened before. Anyone else experience this in the new update?

  9. FIND AND REPLACE MULTIPLE WORDS IN DIFFERENT PAGES

    Hello, I am sure that you see that there are multiple request for " find" and "replace all". I think that this is ridiculous that I have to export the PDF INTO a text file, when you do this it does not generally generate back into the same format, style before editing. I work for an agency and we create over 200k pages in a PDF FORMAT, I need to be able to edit and replace numbers and text without having to convert.
    Saves times. creating in word and text and converting to PDF is not working.

  10. Show the scale that was utilized after measuring and then saving, closing and then re-opening.

    As an architect, whenever I create a plan or document that needs to have an area measured by square feet, I use the MEASURE tool, change the scale to .250/sf, for ex. Then I save it and close it. When I need to go back in to that plan at a later date, I want to be able to highlight the measured area and show the scale that was utilized to measure the area, not just the total square foot measured.

    Any chance for this option in Preferences?

  11. Context menu Combine doesn't work with latest update

    Bug report

    Latest Acrobat DC Pro version (20.009.20063) has introduced a bug where the button "Combine files in Acrobat" in Windows right click context menu does not work as expected. Seemingly randomly it stops working - clicking on the context menu option does nothing, no error. After a restart to the system it works again, but just for some time. Unfortunately I do not know if it is after a certain time or some action that it stops working.

    I went back one version (to 20.006.20042) and it works without problems.

    This is on Windows 10 (1909).

  12. Redact tool not working

    Updated today as prompted by Adobe. My redaction tool no longer works. When I go to apply redactions, I just get a white box with a spinning blue circle in it. Tried restarting, extremely frustrating as redactions and batestamping are the only reason I'm paying for an adobe subscription. Redactions worked beautifully on the version I updated from.

  13. Align a single object on the page

    Ability to align a single object to the left, center, right, top, bottom, middle of page. Currently, we are only able to align multiple objects in relation to each other. I just want to align an image or a text box to the center of the page, but for some reason that is not an option! This is a very basic function of every single editing program I have ever used. Why can we not do this in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC???

    To be clear: I want to align a text box on a page. NOT the text inside of…

  14. 'Apply' blue ribbon [to apply redactions] prompts errors and greatly detracts from the product

    The blue ribbon that prompts me to apply unapplied redactions is a major inconvenience. (See: Adobe Acrobat blue ribbon.PNG)

    I use Adobe Acrobat to redact information from large documents. I can spend weeks assessing and redcating the same document. I do not apply the redactions until I am finished, because:

    1/ I need to be able to refer to content that is being redacted throughout the assessment process.

    2/ I need to keep a copy of the document with unapplied redactions.

    3/ Sometimes I need to be able to undo previously made redactions.

    Prompting me to apply redactions when I…

  15. Bug - page name error after latest update 05-2020

    After a recent update (sometime in April or May 2020), when adding pages to an existing document, whether in "organize pages" or thumbnail view, instead of the page name matching the inserted document, the name takes the same name as the page directly preceeding it. So if I add 25 pages to the end of a file, all new 25 pages have the exact same name as the last page. Definitely a bug, because this did not happen prior to the recent update.

  16. Bug? Removing pages from PDF leaves its bookmarks in place

    I've noticed if you delete pages from an interactive PDF that has bookmarks, it leaves the bookmarks of the deleted pages in place. Not great for a customer-facing PDF. I don't think those useless bookmarks should stay there, as a default anyway.

  18. Signed up for the free trail because I wanted to edit a document

    Error message: “The XFA form cannot be edited using Adobe Acrobat.”
    So I followed the troubleshooting instructions and tried to save the form as Encapsulated PostScript file.
    Error message: “An error exists on this page. Acrobat may not display the page correctly. Please contact the person who created the PDF document to correct the problem.”
    I thought I was the person who created the document. Not sure what I should do.
