  4. can not save pdf

    After downloading a password-protected document (with password protection but authorization for form processing and saving) can only save once.

    When trying to save the document a second time (also under a different name), the error message appears:
    "The document could not be saved.
    The file is either read-only or used by another user.
    Save the document under a different name or in a different folder. "

    Unfortunately, the document can not be saved under a different name and / or folder.

  6. Right-Click to open Properties Bar in Acrobat DC Pro

    Within PDF's we often create notes and comments. The text font and size sometimes needs adjustment. Having used MS Windows all our lives we are conditioned to simply highlight the text, right-click and a pop-up box appears with "properties" listed. Unfortunately with Acrobat DC Pro "properties" is not an option. Now we must navigate 4 layers deep into the menu: View > Show/Hide > Toolbar items > Show Properties Bar

    The right-click for properties feature is widely adopted by third party software companies that want to create a seamless experience for the user within Windows. It is a necessary productivity…

  8. Can only find / replace whole word not partial word

    Cannot replace a partial word. Have Find - whole word unchecked. As soon as I add something to Replace, Whole word checks and goes gray. This was marked as Resolved but it is not.

  9. Organize Pages, Extract, no ability to type in desired multiple page range

    Organize Pages, Extract, currently: no ability to type in desired multiple page range.
    Currently you have to select the Picture Pages to get a Range selected.
    Why can't you all make it available to type in our Multiple Page Range, too, in the Page # box?
    This was a feature for a long time on the older version. It was much quicker & less errors to be able to type in my Page Range to Extract.
    Thank you.

  10. Deleting many pages unacceptable slow in Acrobat DC

    Problem: A PDF-file of 7600 pages. Selecting all even pages in Tools/Manage Pages. Then deleting all even pages except the first or last one. That takes on my iMac with newest DC version over 45 minutes. On a 10 years old PC with Acrobat version 5 it takes less then 3 minutes. That is 15 times faster! This bug needs to be fixed.

  11. Edit using… only shows ”Open with…”

    When I want to edit an object in an external editor, the tool ”Edit using…” only shows ”Open with…”.
    Illustrator/Photoshop is not shown in the list as it used to. It makes no difference if I set them (or any other compatible app) as default editors in preferences.

    (Acrobat Pro DC 2019.021, MacOS 10.14)

  12. Daily Crashing

    Running Acrobat DC and Mac 10.13.4. It's been crashing for years on various machines and Mac OSs. Seems to crash the most while opening multiple pdfs one after another while using the output preview window and the convert colors window. Hope you guys can fix this issue!

  13. Text Box should have Opaque option - Transparent is imposed by default which allows Background image to be visible in text box

    Add a feature to the Add Text function in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC so that a user can choose Opaque for a text box and avoid a Background image being visible through the text box. Also, the user should be able to choose a solid color to appear behind the text in the text box. This feature is so basic that it should have been in the product from the start. Photoshop Elements has had it for a long time!

  14. Ability to Create Shapes/Lines At Appropriate Length Based on Scale

    Once the user sets the scale (also, look at having a "set custom drawing scale by measuring bar scale" option like Bluebeam), allow the user to customize the parameters of lines and shapes to create lines that are a certain length or rectangles and circles that are a certain size.

  15. Ability to Take Snapshots of PDFs and Paste into same PDF

    The snapshot tool is already there, allow the user to past that snapshot within the same PDF. For users working with drawings it is helpful to be able to take a snapshot of a layout and move it to a different area. I worked around this by saving the snapshot as a JPEG and adding an image to the file, which is OK but the image may not come in at the correct scale which leads to errors.

  16. Save 'List layers for visible pages'

    Our large organization needs layered PDFs to view and filter AutoCAD layers, since we will no longer be able to make native AutoCAD files available in an AutoCAD viewer.

    Layered PDFs seem to have the limitation of not being able to save the option of 'List Layers for Visible Pages'.

    In our case, users need to be able to rely on a clean set of layers used for each page, not the confusing list of all layers in the document. We have many multi-paged PDFs that we planned to use to view and filter layers, and the accumulation of layers…

  17. Drag and drop open tab pdfs into another open pdf.

    I don't understand why I can't drag and drop an open pdf into another pdf that I am organising, ie adding the latest statement to a journal statement. It is all a bit cumbersome at the moment

  18. More Advanced Editing Features Such as Reflowing Text

    The ability to join paragraphs in a PDF so, when editing, text reflows in the document, such as in Word:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgDv5BZ-sXg&list=PL5lhrBXHZ3P-ghjTvVCMA4tVBH36QsI&index=3&t=0s

    And, similarly, the ability to link separate text boxes, so that text reflows between the chosen boxes:

  20. Merge files taking pages alternately from each input file while also retaining bookmarks, plus merging two pages from each file into one.

    Would very much appreciate capability to merge files taking pages alternately from each input file while also retaining bookmarks. I work across multiple languages and need to read them side by side, so rather than browsing two files, prefer to have them on the same file so that page turning is easier. PDFSam offers the alternate merging capability, which I use every day, but bookmarks are lost so that I need to keep referring back to the original files to locate content.
    In addition, if pages from the two files can be automatically arranged on the same page (just like…
