  1. Blinking Forms

    Form endlessly blinks, the text does not show properly as you are typing, very slow if you try to suffer through and use it anyway (color wheel appears after a few clicks). This is only an issue on my new MacBook Pro (M1 with Big Sur). My 2015 iMac with Catalina does not have the same issue.

  2. Installing Acrobat Pro plus Acrobat Reader is a necessity

    PDF forms developpers needs to test their forms (created with Acrobat Pro) with Acrobat Reader, so we need to have Acrobat Pro AND Acrobat Reader on the same computer.

    Preventing us from doing so is a nonsense that forces us to use competing software (Foxit or PDF Studio).

  4. Flickering fillable fields - bug

    Please fix the problem of flickering fields in fillable forms for Acrobat DC. I experience it on my M1 mac running the latest OS and Acrobat software. The blinking/flickering fields make it impossible to concentrate on my work.

  5. Document not saving

    When I try to save a document after editing the form; I get a document cannot save, try saving under a different file name. Then it automatically deletes my document and goes right into my trash. When I try to retore and open the document it then gives me an error "There was an error opening this document. Access denied." but I could open the document on the drive online. This is frustrating as I am always organizing documents and if I can't be saving if I organize a page it will take me time to keep going in my…

  8. Save MBOX Files to Adobe PDF Format

    I suggest you use the CubexSoft MBOX to PDF Converter to export MBOX emails to PDF file format. It is also important that the tool offers several conversion options in one installation. In addition, it allows you to convert MBOX files into PDF with all Windows OS including 11, 10, 8.1, 7, XP, Vista, and so on. All of these MBOX to PDF conversion features allow you to access MBOX files in almost any email conversion program be it Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Eudora Mail, Netscape, etc.

    BUG: Text field > action > reset form > Make selections: New text fields added after the fact are automatically added to the list as they DEFAULT AS SELECTED. They should default as not selected as they did not exist before the field was made.

  10. One time edit on multiple text fields / other fields Properties

    I would like to request for multiple fields edits in one go.

    I use InDesign to create digital forms. After exporting the work, I opened the PDF in Acrobat. In my example, I have 4 rows of Date of Birth. I usually edit the DoB to custom dd/mm/yyyy. Acrobat as it is today, only allows me to edit the field one cell at a time which in my case I have to edit 4 times. Imagine if I have a table with 20 date of birth cells. That's 20 edits!!

    I would like the ability to select all 4 cells…

  12. Why can't we resize the contextual tools menu when using the prepare forms tool

    When using prepare forms tool the right sidebar that lists the tab order for fillable fields is too small (20 characters max) and the only way to reorder tab order is by drag and drop.

    Consequently, you drag something but you can not read the place that you are dragging to.

    Fix the right sidebar where it is resizable.

  13. Adjust multi-line text field font size when set to auto

    Is it, or will it be possible in the future, to adjust a multi-line text field font size when set to auto in the appearance properties? I would like to start at a font size 24 or 30 and auto downsize as the text field fills up. It seems to default to size 12 only when multi-line and auto (font size) boxes are ticked in properties.

  14. unmerge check boxes

    Can you please have the ability to unmerge check boxes that are copy and pasted on a form. At the moment this then means if someone checks box 1, box 2 will also be checked by default. Rather than having to put a unique identifier in, it would be handy if there was a way to say I am doing multiple check boxes apply a new code to each unless specified.

  15. Dynamic Paragraph Fields

    I would be extremely helpful to have "dynamic" (for lack of a better term) paragraph fields, that do one or both of the following:

    1. The field expands as the person filling out the form enters text that extends beyond the pre-set dimensions

    and/or

    1. Automatically reduces the font size to fit the field if the person filling out the form enters text that threatens to extend beyond the pre-set dimensions of the field.

    If this feature exists and I am missing something, please feel free to comment and let me know!

    Thanks!

  16. Restore ability to right-click to add form field

    Right-clicking in Prepare Form mode no longer brings up a list of form field options to add. Please bring this back. Having to scroll my cursor up to the toolbar every time I need to add a field is very annoying.

  17. Icons for 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' are mislabelled

    This has been reported before, but is still wrong in the latest version of Acrobat. The icons for 'Distribute Horizontally' and 'Distribute Vertically' are labelled the wrong way around. They function correctly when clicked; it's just the symbols that are wrong. If you look at the same feature in InDesign and Illustrator, you'll see that Acrobat does not match.

  18. There bugs using the tab key in Acrobat DC when making prepared form

    Bug is in the Properties window. If you enter something in the Name field, select all, and hit the tab key to go to Tooltip to paste that in there, Acrobat jumps to the next Field in the order instead of the next entry.

  19. "Use Current Properties as New Defaults" on Auto-Field Detection

    "Use Current Properties as New Defaults" should also apply to the auto-field detection wizard. It seems to defeat the purpose of being able to set these defaults if it only works when adding each field individually and manually.

  20. Bug Report - JavaScript Editor - TAB key to move text over exits the Editor

    Bug Report - In JavaScript, it's common practice to format the code to make it more readable by using the TAB key to indent text. This has worked fine in all previous versions of Adobe Acrobat that I've used. However, in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, pressing the TAB key moves the text to the right once, as it should, but then the focus moves to the OK button to close the Editor. The focus should stay in the Editor so TAB can be pressed again to move the text further to the right. It is EXTREMELY inconvenient to have to…
