  2. Bug on Redacted Information

    I have received a redacted contract on Adobe Acrobat Standard DC that I use on Windows 7. When I hold down ctrl and scroll in (to zoom) the redacted information flashes and I can see what information is blacked out. I think the information should be securely blacked out so there is no possibility of obtaining that information.

  3. Remove Document Cloud Feature

    Due to corporate policy, we are not allowed to use external servers, Document Cloud is such a server. Our documents are not to be loaded to any external servers.
    Can we have the ability to remove the Document Cloud from view or code-wise?
    We can not have our confidential documents going to Adobe's servers.

  5. Drawing polygon always ended a triangle

    This is no an idea. It is a utter disappointment that I paid for perpetual license for Acrobat Pro DC 2015 and I am getting nowhere to be able to draw multi-sided polygons. Always automatically ended a triangle after the third click. Same happens when drawing clouds. Cannot draw multiple segments of connected lines in the same line, always terminated after the second segment.

  7. Allow for customizability of text snippets in advanced search results

    Summary of the Problems: Search result snippets in an Advanced Search are often uninformative due to two distinct problems.

    Problem 1. The length of text snippet in each search result is too short.
    Problem 2. The search term occurs too "early" in the result snippet (that is, the term you searched for is the first or second word in the snippet--you see nothing that came before your term, which is often what you needed to know).

    Solution to Problem 1: allow the user the ability to customize the maximum size of snippets returned with search results. We have huge monitors…

  8. Bulk Changing of Font Color in Acrobat Pro XI and DC

    As also expressed in a bug report related to the changing of font colors within a PDF file, I would like to see Acrobat Pro XI and DC have the ability to change the font color of all pages - or a specified range of pages - within a given document, in one pass. Right now this process must be laboriously applied, one page at a time.

    This feature would be analogous to the Crop Tool, for instance, which does provide the ability to apply itself to all or to a range of pages within the specified file.

  9. Password Authentication for Adobe Sign

    Adobe Sign has a major flaw. The product allows you select Password Authentication to require signers to enter a password before signing, but once signed, the signer no longer has to enter a password to access the signed document. This is a major security flaw. If I am having a signer sign something with personal identifiable information, the signer should have to enter a password both when they sign the document and attempt to view it later. This seems like a very easy addition for Adobe to make and would substantially improve the security of the signing process. Please contact…

  10. Acrobat combine files + Batch compare pdf + Clarify array object error

    If you want supporting screen shots or more detail, please contact me.
    Jyotika at Acrobat Help <adchelp@adobe.com> has my eMail and tele#



    1. Combine files into a Binder always FORCES the default to be filename sequence.
      The User should NOT be forced to move HUNDREDS of files in a large document
      just to get them in the proper sequence.

      Yes, there is the "Move Up/Down" option which works on each file ONE AT A TIME.
      However, has anyone on the Acrobat team actually tried to do that to resequence
      over 1,000 pages into an absolutely different non-alpha result??? THINK…

    In Adobe X the total number of files was shown on the PDF portfolio. Please include this feature in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.

  13. Bug report - pdf won't open with Acrobat DC pro but opens properly with reader

    I am trying to open a pdf form from the Gov. of Canada using Acrobat Pro DC but nothing happens. After double clicking the file, I can see a background process (in task manager) but it doesn't show any activity and the interface doesn't show even after several minutes of waiting. I have tried restarting / repairing installation but same result. Any other document works fine. I have tried opening the same document on another machine with Acrobat reader DC and it opens properly in a few seconds. I have attached the document as well as a screenshot of the…

  15. DocHub Security Patch

    It would be good to have some sort of solution/ patch/ workaround/ update to prevent Google DocHub from being able to edit locked forms. I've noticed that by dropping an adobe pdf into DocHub does a few things:
    1. Even if document password protected to prevent editing it is easily editable and doesnt seem to honor those security settings
    2. When document is locked after signing DocHub allows all the previously fillable fields to be edited while still retaining the original signature
    3. even if a fillable form is converted to flattened copy, once dropped into DocHub all the fillable…

  16. Crop & Set Page Size ICONS

    These two icons do 2 completely different functions from one another. They have appeared the same for ages now. I think it is finally time to create a new Icon look for one or the other. Having both on my quick tools is rather daunting because they look exactly the same.

  17. Korean comment does not work properly

    I don't know if it happens in languages other than Korean (at least not in English).
    If I try to modify a comment, the last character I type is appended at the back.
    For example, if I wrote "Hello world" and tried to add "Hi " at the front, last character "i" is added at the back so it becomes "HHello worldi". (This does not happen in English as I said)

  18. make duplicate digital signature fields

    Whenever a digital signature field is added, we do not get the option to duplicate it. This would be very helpful in cases where same person has to sign on multiple pages in a document.
    At present, it is giving the option to duplicate across pages, however, it is not working nor it is giving any error message.
    Please include this feature in Acrobat, or grey out the duplicate across pages option.

    Presenting pdfs with the need to black out the presentation on the beamer without having access to the beamers remote.
