  1. Inclusion of Indian classic ODIA language in the OCR tool in Acrobat Pro DC.

    The mother-tongue of the people living in the state of Odisha is Odia language. Around 45 million (http://www.dataforall.org/dashboard/censusinfoindia_pca/) of people in India and abroad speak Odia language. Odia is a primarily spoken language in the Indian states of Odisha, parts of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh. Odia is the official language of Odisha and the second official language of Jharkhand.

    The Union Cabinet of India classified Odia as classical language on 20-February-2014. (https://pib.gov.in/newsite/PrintRelease.aspx?relid=103967). So far Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Odia have been declared as classical languages in Indian subcontinent.

    Therefore Adobe is…

  2. Straighten

    A button to straighten a scanned document would be so useful, particularly for anyone using a document feeder to scan. Currently, if you go to edit the document, it will straighten the pages for you, but it will sometimes convert handwritten notes into a font and change their appearance, which isn't ideal for signatures, for example. So, a separate option to straighten the document would be life changing for me at work.

  3. double sided scanning

    It would be great if there was a way to create a .pdf from doublesided documents without doing each page manually or having a scanner that does it automatically. Ideally, I would scan the odd pages. Then turn the stack of documents over and scan the even pages. Then reverse the even pages (to go from low page number to high). Then combine the odd and even pages in a way that it will be: 1,2,3,4,5,6, etc

  4. Selecting Greek text and pasting in Word should be automatic and work just with Ctrl+C.

    Greek OCR should be fixed as it seems broken in the newer versions.
    Below you will find two paragraphs. 1st is from PDFXEdit (free tool) and second is from Adobe Acrobat 2019.021.20056 (costs two virgins and a first born child). It is expected for such an expensive software to make this process straight forward.

  6. Highlighter orients itself improperly after a scan

    [BUG]
    Description: After initially correcting the orientation of the PDF and then highlighting where needed, I then decided to use the find tool to find a word in my PDF. Unfortunately, the PDF was an image and so Acrobat had to enhance the scan to try and search for the word. After enhancing, the page orientation stayed the same but the highlight seemed to rotate itself in the orientation of the original document and not the corrected orientation as shown below.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Have a file with text that is scanned in vertically and is viewed as an…

  7. Need internet to scan from HP printer

    Maybe i am paranoid but I have a case against the Norwegian government. I would like to use my HP printer color laserjet MFP M477fdw against Acrobat that i am renting. That is not working thru an usb-cable.. Probably other instances too that usb is better.... When I try I get you have not internwt. It is files I do not want out on the internet but at the same time it would be better for med to make it digital than having the case on paper.

  10. Add OCR support for curved text

    This is challenging, but I'm sure you could manage:
    Many texts that I need to OCR have been scanned from books, so the text is curved. Right now, Acrobat only recognises text in straight lines, so it jumps lines when highlighting and copying text.Would be great if Acrobat Pro could judge, e.g. by analyzing the borders of text boxes, that lines of text are not perfectly straight.

  11. Thai OCR

    How long do I have to wait for Acrobat to recognize Thai text from scanned images/documents

    I am trying to recognize Thai text from the enhance document tool but Thai is not listed in the languages available. While I can't use this fucntion I also have to pay the same price as the others who can benefit from this feature.

  13. Insert ability to remove all OCRing / hidden text behind visible text in document

    I sometimes receive files that have printed text that appears correctly but for which the underlying OCRing (or text derived from Word or another word processor) has become corrupt or is otherwise garbled and bears no relation to the visible printed text. An example is attached. It would be very helpful if there were a feature that allowed you to remove all existing OCRed text (or the underlying hidden text produced from the word processor) and run Acrobat's OCRing again from scratch.

    It's possible to print an image only PDF and then OCR this, but that is cumbersome, loses quality…

  15. DC disappears (crashes) after new scan

    Fujitsu fi-7160 scans disappear (crash) using the "Create new from scanner" option only. All other scanning works as intended.

    the same issue occurs with WIA or the Twain drivers. All drivers and the program is fully updated.

    Please help

  16. No way to correct OCR errors in Acrobat pro DC

    There is a major problem with OCR in Acrobat Pro CD. I have recognized (OCR) text in many documents. They still contain a lot of recognition errors in the hidden text used for search. When I try to use the function/tool "Correct Recognized text" (translated from Norwegian), I get a message saying that there are no suspected errors. It is not possible to correct the remaining errors. This is just stupid, there is no 100% correct OCR program, there are lots of errors in the recognized text. There must be a way to fix the remaining errors, but your technical…

  17. OCR Scan showing odd artifacts, numbers clipping into one another, and spaces and/or dashes in the underlining.

    We have to use Editable Text and Image for our national database to add our header on the top of pdf documents filed in our database.
    Regardless of scanner used, OCR is not is not seeing the underlines as a solid line. It looks like a bunch of underscores. This results in the numbers above it to become distorted. Sometimes the amounts are not readable.
    here are times the line comes through looking like this: _----------__

  18. Bug: Saving a scanned document

    I cannot save a scanned document. When I click on "save as" a blank box opens up. Nothing else happens. This just started today. I was happily scanning and saving yesterday with no problem.

  19. Correct recognized text box should allow user to change the field

    After running OCR and then running correct, it sometimes doesn't recognize the entire word or a whole character and there's no way to override the incomplete recognition to ensure the entire word is corrected or to correct the partial recognition. If the user could override that recognition and select the full word or character, then correct it to be accurate. Then it would be fabulous if the program would automatically rerun to find similar configurations and offer to correct them throughout the entire file and show the results similar to an advanced search, to complete a quick survey and have…

  20. Correcting a word in OCR, should carry forward to search all others in the same file and automatically correct. I

    Once a word is corrected, Adobe should automatically apply that correction throughout the entire file. Otherwise, you end up having to correct the same word on every page.
