    Could you be more specific with the issue you are facing. Is there an Acrobat feature you are not able to use?

  2. The right panel could be hid in Adobe Acrobat XI that worked wonderfully well for me. Annoyingly, I can't seem to do so in the Pro 17!

    I want Adobe Acrobat Pro 17 to work at least half as well as Adobe Acrobat Pro XI that did the jobs I needed wonderfully well for me. I NEED TO CLOSE THE RIGHT PANEL JUST LIKE I COULD IN XI!!!!!!!!!!! i SEE OTHERS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT TOO. If something wasn't broke in older version why "fix it" with this one. It interferes with my ability to follow through on searched text and read same with the split screen capability Windows offers! PLEASE FIX IT SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Error in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro Installer

    I download the acrobatproDC_dlm disk image on my Macbook Pro running 10.12.5 using the Chrome browser.
    This download proceeds normally.

    After mounting the disk image and starting the installer app, it fails as 29% saying: "Safari must be closed in order to proceed". This comes up in a dialog box with Retry and Close buttons. Retry always fails with the same error message. Close, of course, closes the installer.

    The trouble is that Safari is not running!

    I finally figured out that Adobe Acrobat Reader DC was running and this was the cause of the installation failure.

    Please correct the…

  4. Restrict 'Save As'

    Currently, you can restrict print and save, but cannot restrict Save As. Would like to see that restriction added as well.
    Thanks for your consideration.

  5. Activate advanced features in OpenType fonts

    I bought a font that resembles real handwriting, and in order to activate the alternate characters (i.e. type 444 and each 4 looks slightly different), it requires advanced OpenType font settings. MS Word has this, but Adobe Acrobat does not. I believe Indesign does. It would be helpful to have this feature in Acrobat Pro.

  6. Deskew only works with compression on

    I'm trying to deskew a PDF in Acrobat Pro DC, but it will only work when compression is on at the 3rd lowest setting.
    When trying to go higher or turn compression off the deskew fails.

    PDF is attached and also here:

  10. Opening side by side

    It would be great to be able to open 2 PDF pages next toeach other for easy comparison, i.e. when comparing two people on a geneology site

    Hi

    You can try the following –
    Go to Organize Pages App to move the pages you want to see next to each other.
    Then go to View→Display Options and select Two pages.

    Please let us know if this works for you.

    Thanks
    Vivek

  11. Better update UX

    Acrobat will sometimes generate a pop-up that says "Update completed!" with two options: "Restart Now" and "Cancel". Naturally, I assumed that "Restart Now" meant restart Acrobat. Because that's what it means in every other application on my computer, from Firefox and Chrome, to Intellij, to Microsoft Word, to Steam, and so on. In reality, that innocuous looking button immediately restarted my entire computer, without any sort of warning or confirmation prompt. I've twice lost work (from other applications, like my web browser) because I forgot that in Adobe's world, a user is going to want to immediately restart their entire…

  12. Allow Send For Signature Signed Forms to be Returned to a Separate single Email Address

    We currently have an Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Team Account with 2 users. We will be adding more users once we are more familiar with how this will work for us as a company.

    One problem that we have is that when our Employee1 sends an Adobe Form to a customer A using "Send for Signature", once Customer A signs the form, the signed form is returned to Employee1's email address that is registered with "Manager Your Team"

    When Employee 2 sends an Adobe Form to a customer B using "Send for Signature", once Customer B signs the form, the…

  14. In output preview the separations still view in CMYK when only one colour is selected. So you can't see the seperate plates in Acrobat.

    In output preview the seperations still view in CMYK when only one colour is selected. So you can't see the seperate plates in Acrobat. I had to use Acrobat XI Pro to view the separations.

  16. BUG: multiple actions assigned to keyboard shortcut ~

    Currently, typing ~ is assigned in Acrobat to BOTH "insert text at cursor" AND "output preview." It is completely unpredictable which action will result when I type ~.

    I need to be able to bring up the "insert text a cursor" function without having to mouse all over the place.

    Please fix this bug.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, can you please share your machine details, Acrobat version, and also the pdf with which you are facing the issue.

  18. Acrobat Standard XI. The 3 step rotate page system is clunky.

    Would like to have the "rotate left" and "rotate right" buttons available in Acrobat Standard XI. The 3 step rotate page system is clunky.

  19. Add tutorial to add an index to a book. Your instructions for it are WAY TOO VAGUE.

    I have been trying to add an index for a 278 page book in PDF. I spent an hour on the phone to tech support in India and no one there seems to know how to do this.

    I also need to be able to VIEW it and install it into this PDF to publish it. PLEASE add a tutorial on how this is done, step by step, without CLOUDING the issue with terms like "catalog" and "metatdata" that do NOT contribute to the objective.

  20. Adobe Standard XI huge downgrade

    I had Adobe Pro 9. I used it at work to add stamps, and markup drawings. My machine was rebuilt and Adobe Standard XI was loaded. Very inefficient software for what I need. I searched for the comparison to XI Pro and am not convinced it is any better.
    Some issues: preloaded stamps cannot be removed, each stamp has to be selected every time (9 would remember the last used), you cannot copy multiple objects using the control button, you cannot save a custom sheet sized when printing (previously you could, issue of width/length for some sizes being backwards still…
