  1. Why is there an Edit Text & Images tool in Prepare Form?

    In Prepare Form, why can't I use the Select Object Tool to select multiple fields with a marquee anymore? I've always used it in the past but every time I use it now, it automatically switches to Edit Text & Images, which I don't want it to do. This change supposed to be an "improvement" in the most recent update of Acrobat DC, but it has made my job both harder and take longer. Evidently, there's no way turn off Edit Text & Images when you're in Prepare Form, so you're just stuck editing fields without using a marquee to…

  3. Be able to link text fields so that text entered will wrap from one to the next

    When creating a form, allow text fields to be linked so when someone is filling out the form the text wraps into the next field instead of making the font size smaller.

  4. keep form editing and text editing separate please

    After last update, there is a change in how creating form is working. Form editing (creatin) now contain text edit, which is for me higly unwanted feature, since there is no turn on/off. I am editing 30+ fields in once and selecting all of them is impossible. My form has lot of text boxes and while creating pdf, i dont need them to edit anymore. I just want to edit form fields. Once you mouse down or mouse up on any text, it will ruin the multiple select of fields and start editing text. We are using old version becasue…

  5. BUG: Form Fields Disappear, Can't Modify Name or Tooltip

    Fields become "ghost fields"; they still show up in the sidebar on the right and you can still open their properties. However, you cannot select the form field and type text in it. You also can't change the properties, like name and tooltip fields; when you try to, and click away from the field you just changed, they revert back with no notification. This happens every time I open this file in a different application, such as an Accessibility plug-in called CommonLook, and has happened with other files too. Fixing tags in the plug-in causes forms to break in Acrobat,…

  7. [BUG] Filled form-field contents only visible after clicking into the form-field when receiving a filled out form from Mac Users

    When a docx is saved as a PDF (by Microsoft Word 2019 MSO (16.0.12624.20348) 64bit) and form-fields are added in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20042, and the resulting PDF with formfields is then filled out and saved using Preview.app 2020.006.20042 on a Mac, the resulting PDF hides the filled out content of form-fields. Clicking into the filled form field reveals the contents. The PDF renders fine in other PDF viewer implementations.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create an empty word document and save it as a PDF.
    2. Open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and add a form field …

  8. Cannot open two pdf files at one (when I do it crashes)

    If I have one PDF open and try and open a second, the software crashes. I have to go into windows task list - end task (on Adobe) and start again. Is it just me it does this for?

  9. SERIOUS PROBLEM NEWEST INDESIGN AND OLDER PDF FILE

    I received a PDF file, to be placed in a magazine, with text on a transparent part of the PDF.
    When I place the PDF file in an Indesign document the text on the transparent part is not visible.
    In an older version of Indesign, CC 2019 there is no problem.

    After a chat session of a day with Adobe we find the problem, it’s the version of PDF.
    A PDF file made in version 1.3 of Acrobat distiller. When I converse it to version 1.6 the problem is solved.

    I think Indesign should support also older versions of PDF…

  10. Batch encryption pop-up box for multiple files needs option: "do this for all files"

    When applying a security policy to multiple files, each file should not have to automatically open with a pop-up box "do you want to save changes to "filename"? When the question pops up for the first file, we need to have a little checkbox with the option to select: "do this for all files".
    It's extremely tedious when asked the same question over and over (120 times) for a batch of PDFs to which you've selected to apply a security policy.
    Also, there's a slight bug - the security policy is never applied to the final file.

  13. Checkbox to flatten files before combining

    I used acrobat to create a fillable pdf. Now, when I receive them back, I want to be able to combine them into 1 pdf. When I do that, it overwrites all the fields with the info from the first file. Incredibly not helpful. If there was a box that I could check that would tell the program to flatten the files before they were combined, that would be helpful.

  14. [Bug Report] Deleting a page while the mini page preview is visible produces an error

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2019.021.20061
    When I open a PDF and double-click with my middle mouse button (the scroll wheel), a mini page thumbnail window is opened, similar too the Pan & Zoom window, but slightly different. For a picture of what I mean with the mini page thumbnail see this post: https://superuser.com/questions/428987/how-to-disable-middle-button-showing-a-page-thumbnail-in-adobe-reader

    Note that this is not regarding the Page Thumbnail sidebar nor the "Pan & Zoom" window. There is no menu option to make this mini page thumbnail appear, the only way is to double-click the middle mouse button.

    While that mini page thumbnail window…

  15. PDF Printer executable to be installable anywhere (CRM:00989000000047)

    Dear all,

    I have just talked with your support but unfortunately I didn't get the hoped reply.
    Anyway, as you may know we're experiencing a bad period around the world about Corona Virus and also for IT Technicians like me is not easy to manage all of the requests related to satisfy users in Agile Working from home, that the company require to us.
    One of the most challenging request to us is the one related to the paperless solution, combining existing systems with PDF solution in order to provide digital prints.

    In my case at the moment, I'm using…

  16. When it works please leave it alone.

    Acrobat just updated and now I have no control over the creation of fields in forms as it constantly defaults to auto fill. What a mess and right on deadline! Please a simple button which turns this on or off, with the default to off as auto still only does half the job and now I find I can't over ride it...even in the preferences forms section...I am not a happy user!

  17. Form entry removes leading zero on number fields

    Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20034, Entering a number in the Maryland application form for absentee ballot, a four digit field removes the leading 0. This leading 0 is necessary. I have fiddled with properties some but I will have to print the form and fill that in by hand.

  18. Bug: LiveCycle Designer form not showing up in Acrobat Pro 2019.012.20036

    Since the update from 2019.012.20035 to 20036 I cannot even view a PDF-Form created in LiveCycle Designer on Acrobat Pro Win any longer. Also the DataMatrix-Field that worked perfect with 20035 is not updating in Adobe Reader (where I CAN display the form!!!). On a Mac with same version visibility of the form YES, but also no updates of DMC on both Pro and Reader. This must be fixed very soon!

  19. Document Name should be unique to each file name

    I use this produce daily. Love split function - makes processing more efficient.
    The most recent update took away the feature to have more than 1 document open at a time. This has caused a tremendous slow down with processing.
    To get around this, I combine the pdfs, delete the bookmarks, create a new bookmark for each document, then use the split feature under organize pages. This is more work than it should be.
    Please fix this a.s.a.p.
