  1. Acrobat crashes when copying text

    Acrobat crashes when copying text -- no error message appears, application just closes. Document is fairly large (~1000 pages), created in Adobe FrameMaker. Acrobat only crashes if document is tagged -- if all tagging is removed, we are able to copy text easily.

  3. Need to be able to save a prepared Adobe Sign, and PREVIEW for QC, after completing Step 2 prior to sending

    Need to be able to save a prepared Adobe Sign, and PREVIEW for quality control, after completing Step 2 of adding signature blocks prior to sending. Example: I built out the signature piece and wanted to SAVE it for Review with my client of where to sign BEFORE I sent it to client for signatures. I was unable to do either of these. As a result, I felt nervous sending the document out to client because I was forced to send it directly after my first pass of prepping for signatures. I tried to create a template and that was…

  4. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC crashes when reducing file size

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC crashes when reducing file size. I get no error message, no compressed file is produced, the original file is unaltered. This happens on multiple different files and is not associated with one particular file. Typically my files have been created originally from a word document (including images), and then have other PDFs inserted as additional pages which originate from excel and autocad.

    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10
    OS Version: 10.0.18362
    Acrobat Version: 20.6.20042.371103

  5. Remove buttons on (left) Navigation Pane

    It is very easy to add buttons to left Navigation pane. However, you cannot remove individual buttons.

    The only option is to Reset the pane returning the three original buttons (thumbnails, bookmarks, attachments).

    It seems there should be a way to remove individual buttons at will (not just reset).

    Thank you

  6. Why did Acrobat change the UI to this simplistic, childish design? Terrible, slower to use.

    Acrobat Pro used to be seamless, easy to use and efficiently laid out. Now it looks like some child's puzzle game where you have to access numerous screens to accomplish what you used to be able to do from ONE PLACE.
    Maddening, dumb redesign that apparently was done for what? Tablet use? Why ruin something many of us use in professional settings so students and casual users can play around with their school prom flyer on mom's ipad?
    It is ugly and not at all intuitive. Clearly the project team didn't have anyone with institutional knowledge involved.

  7. Adobe recently removed option to send Zipped Folders from Send & Track. Was working fine a couple of months ago...now requires $$$

    Adobe recently removed option to send Zipped Folders from Send & Track. It was working fine a couple of months ago...I inquired and now Adobe is saying that you need a paid subscription. I purchased the product outright which is costly, but do not want to deal with subscriptions for every PC (especially in office environment with a ton of computers).....hence the fact of buying the product. Please BRING IT BACK!!

  8. Editing Arabic text in pdf leads to corrupted pdf

    We discovered a word that need to be replaced during our final pdf output from Framemaker so we edited the pdf. Once we copied the Arabic word from our excel spread sheet the entire book became corrupted by scrambling letters, changing font appearances and reversing parenthesis and other characters. Need this fixed.

  9. "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).

  10. 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…

  12. preferences>general dialogue box too large

    When I go to change the preferences > general, the dialogue box is too large, and i cannot access the cancel or okay button. I either have to change my display resolution to make it show in its entirety on the screen, or i have to tab, tab, tab to 'hopefully' get to the button to select it, without seeing it. All other dialogue boxes to the other sections seem to resize perfectly, utilizing a second or third column of text, i.e.Preferences> Page Display. Fortunately, this issue with the General section seems to be the only one.

  13. Add support for the Data URL scheme

    Currently, embedded links which use the Data URL schema are blocked by Adobe Acrobat even when adjusting security settings. Adobe Acrobat doesn't need to support reading these links as they're simply opened in a browser, but we need Acrobat to stop blocking these links. I've attached an example PDF with an embedded data url.

  15. Bug: “Create Contents item for link annotation” fix fails!

    If we create a tagged PDF from InDesign, the contents item for hyperlinks is missing. This can be fixed with Acrobats single preflight fix: Create Contents Item For Link Annotations.

    However, this broke already in 2019 and still is broken in 2020!
    In 2018 it works in one go.

    In 2019 and 2020 we have to run it is many as five times before it is actualy applied!

    We save the document each time under a different name, sometimes the third time we run the fix it sticks, sometimes after five times, sometimes not at all.

    Now we heard this…

  16. Redact tool not working

    Updated today as prompted by Adobe. My redaction tool no longer works. When I go to apply redactions, I just get a white box with a spinning blue circle in it. Tried restarting, extremely frustrating as redactions and batestamping are the only reason I'm paying for an adobe subscription. Redactions worked beautifully on the version I updated from.

  19. Make Home functionality same as othe rAdobe products

    Make Home functionality same as other Adobe products - put the little house up there, have a way to bring back the Home screen once you've closed it etc. - would be very helpful.
