  1. PDFs try to open with firefox or other app even when DC is set.

    Its a Bug.

    After saving an excel or PDF, Firefox tries to open it. I have to go to info and change the app to Acrobat...again and again, even after setting the preference.

    Could you please elaborate what issue you are facing ?
    For better clarity, please include : Problem statement, reproducible steps, OS platform, Acrobat build# that you are using.

  3. "Show border hover color for fields" interferes with custom form element rendering

    If you create custom radio button element in Indesign it will be rendered wrongly on acrobat pro (and reader) if

    Preferences >
    Forms >
    "Show border hover color for fields"

    is turned on.

    Once you turn that setting off, acrobat renderes the form element as expected.

    Attached indd, pdf and two screenshots to demonstrate the behaviour

  4. Custom Stamp unavailable in Acrobat for Mac

    Custom stamp isn't populating the Stamp icon in Acrobat DC Pro for some Macs even when it is in the Stamp Folder. The custom stamp works on all Windows OS and all Mac OS but a few Mac users are having that issue.

    Hello,

    Most likely this seems to be an issue with the permissions with a user profile on the system, please try the following steps and check if that helps.
    1. Create a new user profile on the affected Mac machine, and test the scenario again.
    2. Check the permission on Adobe folder and Sub-folders, match with non-affected Mac machines:

    Location of Adobe folder:

    It’s in your user (Home) > Library folder. In recent versions of Mac OSX, this is hidden by default.

    In the Finder, hold down the Option key first while choosing Go > Library so you can see it.

    Then find it in:
    Library > Application Support > “Adobe” > Acrobat > DC > Stamps

    let us know how it goes.

  5. Cloud Based Digital ID

    Cloud based digital IDs are getting common, convenience (applicable for use between different devices), cheaper and my desire feature - 2 factor OTP (One-Time Password). Why Acrobat Pro DC does not allows cloud based digital IDs? I don't feel there's a competition to Adobe Sign if this is included. More importantly, tag line for Acrobat is "complete PDF solution", it will be ridiculous to switch between 2 Adobe software just for signing with cloud based digital ID.

    P.S.: Took me quite a while to realize the difference between token/certificate digital ID and cloud based digital ID. My effort was wasted…

  6. View/page display/enable scrolling - doesn't work when selected

    When I open a PDF, and select View/page display/enable scrolling - it doesn't work. I have discovered (trial and error) that if I change the window size (click on bottom corner and drag/resize diagonally a little, larger or smaller) that that seems to correct the enable scrolling issue. It is frustraitng to have to do that with each PDF I open, since I review multiple-paged PDFs a good bit of the day. Please fix it. Thanks. (iMac user)

  7. What happened to the % view in the top of the PDF window?

    I view PDFs on a 27" screen so two open PDFs fit side by side, making review easier. I no longer see the % field in the tool section at top of each PDF. While I can, with multiple steps (4), change the view % size, it used to be so easy to just change the visible % field as needed—1 step. Usually, I need the annotated PDF at 75% and the revised PDF at 100% (this allows for the wide comment column to be seen.). I have searched all the tool preferences that I can find, but can not…

  8. Unapplyable comment, and import FDF file to PDF file

    Could not find the menu for import FDF file to PDF file. It was next to Export all the comments to FDF file. Sometimes I need to merge some different reviewers' comments into 1 PDF file, I need this.

    Also, online review is not available for some kind of commenting? but it didn't say detail or how to solve the problem, I could not do anything. Is it possible to show us what was wrong?

  9. When exporting to excel it is auto merging cells now.

    Each time I export to excel the format is not like the previous versions. There is far more work to format the document. Cells will auto merge or additional columns will be added. Past versions have allowed me to export the exact document with no format issues.

  10. Would like to export "Saved Settings" in Watermark & Header/Footer Tools to another computer

    I have a number of Watermark and Header/Footer "Saved Settings" on one Mac (desktop) that I would like to export from it and import into another Mac (laptop). These include page number specs for different page sizes. It would be a great time saver if, once those were saved in one computer, they could be exported into another without entering in the specs from scratch.

  11. Unknown location if available for the crop feature. To crop documents.

    Older versions I was able to quickly locate the tools to crop an image to make it smaller. I was also able to break down a document and extract one page if needed as a pdf file. Manipulate files is what this was useful for. No longer is this a user friendly program.

  12. LaTeX support in the comments

    It would be so cool to have LaTeX support in the comments. So that people can jot mathematical notes for themselves while reading.

  13. Print to PDF

    Dear Adobe team.
    I'd like to mention that for some reason, when I am on any app and I want to print as PDF, the quality of the file when I choose Microsoft Print to PDF is much better than when I choose Adobe PDF printer... That's very strange to me, given that as long as I know, you are the creators of this standard... Same thing happened when I had a mac. The built in PDF printer was much better than the Adobe one. I never went deep into settings to try to fine tune it so that I…

  15. Tab order property / sorted list with java script

    There is currently no way to get the tab order of fields in a PDF file via JavaScript. While it is possible to set it by creating fields in the desired order, there is no way of getting the order of already available fields – only alphabetically. Giving the Field object a new property or reading out another sorted list would solve this.

    Also, this link is currently on 404:

  18. Was able to share Adobe XFA form for review, but ended up with funny situation.

    When using the latest Acrobat DC to share Adobe LiveCycle Dynamic Form for review on the cloud, I was able to receive the document on the participant side, but the document didn't show, instead I see a message as usual because it is a dynamic form, which is expected. But, I was able to use commenting tools online to draw and add comments, which seemed very strange. When I opened the document from the originating reviewer using Acrobat, I saw the comments and drawing, which is shocking. I tried to add comments, it didn't let me, which is expected. Please…

  19. Certifying pdf's over network fails with disk space error

    When trying to apply a certificate and save a pdf on a network drive, I'm presented with:
    ]
    The document could not be saved. The disk you were saving to or the disk used for temporary files is full. Free some space on this disk and try again, or save to a different disk.

    I am using Acrobat Pro, I saw on some forums the solution was to disable "Enable protected mode on startup" but this seems to be an Acrobat reader option.

    I have full access to the network drive, there is plenty of space both locally and on…
