  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. Bug: Shadows disappear on Windows 10 explorer windows

    Adobe Acrobat DC keeps turning off the shadows of my explorer windows. Changing the theme in Acrobat doesn't help.

    Workaround if you encounter this problem:


    1. Windows key + r

    2. Run: sysdm.cpl

    3. Advanced

    4. on Performance -> Settings

    5. Under Visual Effects tab -> Show shadows under windows -> Apply

    Probably repeat after restarting Acrobat

  4. Bug Report - Acrobat Pro DC hangs on external Javascript editor

    I’m trying to edit Javascript in an external editor. This has worked for years until just now. I’ve tried Brackets and TextWrangler with the same failure. Acrobat launches the external editor, and waits until the editor process is no longer running. This means that you actually have to quit the editor after saving the document in order to make Acrobat respond to your input again. This is fine, it has always worked in the past. But now when I quit the external editor, Acrobat remains unresponsive because it's waiting for the external editor to close, even though it’s already closed.

  6. Printing/scanning issues after update 2020.009.20063

    I am working at an MSP currently. Two separate customers are experiencing issues with printing/scanning after update 2020.009.20063 on Reader and Acrobat DC.

    If you try to scan a document that is multiple pages it will freeze after the first page.

    We attempted repairs and reinstalls but were unsuccessful with both.

    Workstations are running W10.

    Thank you.

  7. Spell check as you type

    I'd like to have spell check AS I TYPE while writing post-it note comments in Acrobat. Every other form field in the world checks spelling as you type...but not Acrobat. Why? This is a ridiculous product limitation!

  8. LogTransport Application (LogTransport2.exe) maxes out CPU usage

    As the title says, LogTransport Application (a process listed under Adobe Acrobat DC in the Windows Task Manager) basically runs at full throttle and maxes my CPU (well, one core).

    I can tell when this starts because my laptop's fans start going.

    This problem started around about the most recent Acrobat update, so mid May.
    Current version is:
    Acrobat DC, 2020.009.20065
    Windows 10 Pro 1903

  9. Recent documents keep disappearing

    Links to my recent documents keep disappearing from the Recent list. The message says: "There aren't any recent files". Acrobat is currently up to date on my Windows 10 laptop. This is happening sporadically, with recent docs appearing as expected for some time, then vanishing without explanation, sometimes while I'm looking at the list Acrobat Pro DC.

  10. Comments shall not get auto-locked

    I am working with Linde Engineering India (Linde AG) as Engineering consultant. Our daily routine job is to review various suppliers' documentation to meet the client requirement. Supplier submits the document which we review in .pdf using commenting tool. Previously we were using Acrobat 9 for this in Windows7. Now we are using Windows 10 for last more than 1 year and in that, we are only allowed to use Acrobat standard DC Version 2015.006.30033. In this Adobe Acrobat version, we are not able to edit the comments made by our peers / sub-ordinates before sending it back to Supplier

  12. Stuck Optimizing Page 1

    Scanning multiple pages with a Canon MX922 all-in-1, Windows 10 on a Dell Inspiron laptop. First page scans, additional pages feed through the ADF but only page one appears on screen frozen showing "Optimizing..." Acrobat DC automatically updated on 5/15/2020, as did Windows 10. Now can only scan one page at a time. Appears to be an issue with multiple users.

  13. Acrobat Pro DC - Sometimes Holds Lock on File after closing it

    Hi,

    Arobat Pro DC closes file OK, but sometimes appears to keep the file locked against changes in Windows (Win10, 64bit, fully updated May2020) etc

    Win 10 \ Windows Explorer is prevented from modifying the parent folder name (for example).

    Does not always happen. Closing Acrobat Pro DC appears to release the file (in that it allows changes to the filepath etc using Windows Explorer etc).

    This is similar to issue reported usign Acrobat READER.

    The Windows Preview tab is NOT showing
    (that Win10 bug (?) is a known issue, but relevant here).

    Regards
    L

  14. Bug: Acrobat DC damages W array during Save as


    • Open the file minimal.pdf in Acrobat DC. Look at the number '11' on page 3 and '12' on page 4.

    • Save As... the document

    • close and reopen the saved document

    • The numbers '11' and '12' are now rendered wrong (glyphs on top of eachother)

    => Acrobat DC changed the font so CID 18 now has a width of 0...

  15. Multiple Custom Tool Sets with Same Tools - Different Properties for Each Tool

    For work I use multiple tools to add comments to PDFs. I have created a custom tool set with the tools I need to use the most. We are required to use specific colors depending on what we are commenting on. It would make it so much easier if I could make custom sets (all with the tools I use) and have each one be different color schemes.

    A few examples of this are below:

    Custom Tool Set #1
    Highligher – Color/Green
    Text Box – Border/Red; Fill/Green; Text Color/Blue
    Arrow – Color/Green
    Rectangle – Color/Green

    Custom Tool Set #2
    Highligher…

  18. "Recent files" bug under macOS Catalina? No files show (yes, in Home view)

    File management issue. Or UI issue.

    No recently opened files appear at all. Not in the Open Recent menu, not after I choose to show all recent files.

    Yes, even in the Home view.

    (And now the UserVoice form is not allowing me to post my report. Perpetual "Server Communications problems! Please try again.") message.)

    Slows me down a bit.

    In MacOS (Catalina 10.15.3).

  19. Recent files, don't actually show the most recent file

    Recent files list don't actually show the most recent file. I think files opened from email or API don't show in the ist ... MIA.

    There have been many good ideas requested by other users but you mark them as "Resolved" instead of "Rejected". Just pointing to a style guide or help page that is incorrect is not solving anybodies problem.

    We will keep creating new requests for these missing features and bugs until you listen and REALLY FIX them. Often they seem quiet trivial but are great time savers for some users. Please leave them as "Unresolved" unless you…

  20. Wrap redaction overlay text

    When redacting within a document, if the redaction space is to small to show all of the overlay text associated with the redaction code, the overlay text is cut off. The request is to wrap the text within the redaction area to show all of the code text.
