  1. Mac Mojave: "save" screen is blank

    When I open a PDF and choose the save command or save from the File menu, the "save" screen that pops up is blank. This is a significant functionality that is critical to using the software.

    I am running Mojave 10.14.3 and Adobe DC 2019.10.20098

  2. Acrobat DC crashes when opening a second PDF

    Like many others I am unable to have more than one PDF open using Acrobat DC. I've gone through all the suggested troubleshooting measures and nothing has fixed the issue.

    It doesn't matter how I attempt to open the 2nd PDF, Acrobat DC immediately crashes.

    Any help with this would be great.

  3. Open in separate windows

    I just had my computer repaired which required a migration of my old computer SSD to a new SSD. Before that, I used to be able to open up several PDF files at the same time in their own window, which is how I like to work as I frequently have to review multiple documents at the same time. I would like to know if that option still exists and if not I would like it back please.

    Also, the icons have changed on my desktop (why; that was your brand and was easy to depict from other doc files?).

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing.
    For openign several PDF files at the same time in their own window you can
    1)open the preferences box by going to edit menu > click on preferences or by pressing ctrl+k
    2) In categories select ‘General’
    3) In basic tools uncheck ’Open documents as new tabs in the same window.

    For “fit a page to the full Adobe view screen” you can
    1) Right click and select ‘Document properties’
    2) Click on Initial view tab and select your preference in ‘Layout and Magnification’

    I hope this will help you.

  4. Specific location zoom

    I deal with multiple sheets of similar layout. I would like to zoom in on an area and go from sheet to sheet with the same area zoomed at the same scale. The version prior to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC allowed me to do that IF I was zoomed in anywhere that included the top margin of my image. But the new Adobe Acrobat Pro DC will only allow a similar zoom if I have zoomed into the TOP LEFT corner of an image. : ' ( : ' ( : ' (

  5. No extract button

    I download a large pdf document every day. This must be broken up into smaller documents, but there is NO EXTRACT BUTTON! I have to open the "Page Thumbnails" and highlight what I want to extract, then right click, hit "extract" and go from there. It takes so much longer!

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    You can use the extract button by following below mentioned steps:
    1) Open a pdf
    2)Click on Organize pages
    3) Now click on extract
    4)Now you can select the pages you want to extract
    5) Also you have the option to ‘Extract pages as separate files’

    Hope this helps you.

  6. View nested animation in AE and Flash/Animate in main composition/timeline would be extremely useful for animating complex scenes.

    With Flash/Animate for years, I've had trouble with nested animations. In order to use the nesting to its full potential, and for organization, I will animate small pieces in nested animations (Flash) and am now trying to use pre-Composite groups on the main composition (AfterEffects). For multiple items, and for many nested animations, it's extremely difficult to create a uniform animation when I can't see what's happening in the Main Composition/ Timeline while in the nested animation or pre-composite. A feature to allow you to see what happens in the Main Timeline while working on these smaller pieces would be…

  7. Add option to keep documents from moving/resizing Acrobat window

    Some PDF documents seem to contain meta data content that's causing Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat Reader to move/resize their program window when such document is opened.

    This behaviour is rather annoying and it may lead to accessibility issues.

    Please, either stop Acrobat/Reader from moving/resizing their program window when opening a document containing such meta data information, or provide an accessibility option in Preferences to optionally have Acrobat ignore that meta data information.

    Hi,
    The issue faced by you is due to the setting of the document set by the user. Please see the following setting in the document :
    1. Open Document→File → Properties → Initial View Tab → uncheck Center Window on screen

    Please make sure the setting is not checked in your document to avoid the issue.

    Thanks

  8. Reduced Size PDF

    Save as Other>Reduced Size PDF in DC - Adobe's prior versions of Acrobat reduced the file size much much more. DC Reduced Sized files are still too huge! It's not true they can't be reduced more in size because outside apps are able to do this without any difference in readability for basic use.

    I would request you to use the “Optimize Scanned Pages” feature of Optimize PDF application. Please follow the below steps :

    1. Open your PDF file and go to Optimize PDF application.
    2. Choose the “Optimize Scanned Pages” option. Press “OK” on the next dialog with default settings.

    Sandeep Grover

  9. Acrobat file save is blank

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat CC 2018 on an iMac using macOS High Sierra version 10.13.2. When I edit or create a pdf file, the save or save as commands bring up a BLANK field instead of the traditional save or save as field. I can't save any files. The only way to get the edited file or binder is to email it to myself. Is this something I can fix or is it a bug on CC 2018?

    Hi,

    You can always check the recent files you opened, but as designed after system restart Acrobat will not open those files for you by itself.

    Thanks

  13. Emailing PDF Files

    I do not like the fact that I cannot just simply send a PDF as an email attachment any longer with the new upgrade 10-3-18.

    Having to go through all the steps of going the the share process is very inconvenient when you have to send hundreds of different PDF through the course of the day.

  15. Make Acrobat great again, for prepress.

    New UI changes continue to make Acrobat more complicated to use for PDF workflow when doing prepress.
    Why can't I turn off the Home window?
    Why does adobe want everything to be full screen

  16. Save form option when emailing

    When taking a form and editing it or whatever you want and then you go to email it I shouldnt be forced to save the form before emailing it. Me personally I dont need a copy of the form, I just want to email it like you used to be able to do on the old version before the update.

  17. Bring back exploded view options

    Can we also bring back the separate view styles (fit to width, fit a page, etc) instead of burying them in a submenu as well? Hiding useful navigation is not good UI/UX.

  18. Want to selectively delete individual lines from the RECENT LIST without deleting the actual files from my HD or Document Cloud.

    Want to selectively delete individual lines from the RECENT LIST without deleting the actual files from my HD or Document Cloud. As it stands now the Recent List gets so long as to be a nuisance. At least allow clearing items after a certain period of time.

    Please try the following steps after updating your Acrobat to the latest version:
    1. On the recent file list, Select the individual files using the check mark on the left.
    2. After the selection you’ll see the option “remove from recent” on the right, select the same.

  19. 20080 Action Lists no longer can save to folder

    The Action Wizards that are custom setup can no longer save to a pre-specified folder.

    Previously action would save to a designated folder when "Save to Local Folder" was the option.

    It no longer saves at all even though the operation is checked.

    What should happen is it should be saved in the folder specified as previously.

    I'm running MacOS 10.14 and using Acrobat 20080 on a MacBook Pro.

  20. Recent files list / Way too sparse

    New Acrobat DC recent files list wastes a lot of space. It's a list, the name entry includes a separate line just to say "PDF" which spaces apart the items unnecessarily. Just put that in a column (there's lots of wasted space there too).
