  1. A document where images cannot be screenshot to be searched for on google images or way to alter our images so same images don't come up

    I need to be able to create a document where the images we include can not be screenshot and the searched for in google image search (thus enabling the person I am sending the PDF to to go to competitor websites who have the same images as us). So either no screenshot allowed or the ability to change the images we have sufficiently that google image will not find it.

  4. Signed document should be frozen, while it is not....

    When we (in my company) sign documents with "fill and sign", we get following instant message; " When you save a form with signature or initials you will no longer be able to edit the existing form fields". This is perfect! BUT; this is not true! Even after the document is saved, others can change anything in the document, and even delete the signature!!!?!! Should be possible to choose if others should be able to sign (as multiple signatures often is needed), or if it should be totally locked for any editing after signing!

  5. I have had the most unimaginably bad customer experience today with you products.

    I have had the most unimaginably bad customer experience today with you products. I bought a new computer (MacBook) and attempted to load the software I purchased in 2015. For the last 8 hours I (or one of our people here at our company) have been trying to contact you or work through your chat capability or simply follow some instructions (not findable) to complete this simple task. No success. Could you please have someone contact me as soon as possible.

  6. Certified Sigs Should Allow Timestamping by Judicial Court E-Filing Systems

    Our county's superior court system requires that we e-file all documents into the court; upon filing a document with the system ("LINX"), LINX timestamps it.

    This doesn't work with a certified e-signed document, because Adobe locks the document from future editing. If I try to e-file a certified copy, LINX immediately rejects the file, because of course LINX can't timestamp it.

    I'm forced to print out the file, physically scan it again, and e-file the document that I had e-signed in the first place! Am I missing a checkbox somewhere that I can check, to force Adobe to allow editing…

    Hi Molly, Kevin,

    Thanks for writing to us.

    From what I understand, you require your PDF to be digitally signed again, after you have shared it after certifying and digitally signing by your signature? Can you please try these steps and see if this is what you require:

    1. Open PDF in Acrobat DC. From Tools→ select ‘Prepare form’ app and click Start. Add (at least) 2 signature fields from top toolbar and save the document
    2. Right click on the first signature field and select ‘Certify with visible signature’. In the Certify Document dialog that comes up, under ‘Permitted Actions After Certifying’, select ‘Form fill-in and digital signatures’
    3. Now sign the document by adding your signature
    4. Send the document to LINX now

    Does this solve your problem? Please let us know.

    Thanks,
    -amboo

  8. When starting, open documents previously open

    Often I'll have 5-10 documents open at once - they are constantly in use. When I close Acrobat they are all closed. and when I re open Acrobat I need to reopen all the documents. It would be nice if it would veryt simply open all of the files open when it was last closed.

  12. I can't open the PDF attachment from email

    I received this file thorough email and I can't open it in my MacBook, but it opens in other computers.
    This happens daily with many other PDF's I receive.

    I am not sure if this is an Acrobat issue. But still, are you facing this issue with any particular email client?

  15. How do I delete pages from a multiple PDF doc in Microtech Docman

    I'm trying to delete pages from a multi page document in Docman (PCTi Solutions) with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I am not getting the delete option unless I check the full document out onto my desktop, edit it there, drop it back into Docman and delete the original. I want to amend the original not delete it. What an I missing??

    Hi Karen

    This looks like an issue with Docman. Did you try getting in touch with their support team?
    If they need any help from Adobe in adding some functionality, they can contact us through corporate channels.

    Please let us know if you still need help.

    Thanks

  16. Bug - Name in top Right Corner Constantly Changes

    I have changed my name a few months ago. When my account was created I went by a different name. I have updated my account to show my new name. It seems like every .pdf I open shows a different name. Sometimes it shows my old name and sometimes my new name. I have tried signing completely out and back in, same issue. It happens randomly. Steps to re-produce the issue is to just open a .pdf file. Environment - Windows 10, domain joined computer.

  18. Bug - Converting Font to Outlines


    1. Bug When Converting Font to Outlines

    2. Open PDF and run Convert Fonts to Outlines under Print Production then Preflight

    3. macOS 10.12.5

    4. Fonts should be converted to outlines

    5. Fonts are not converted when opening PDF in Illustrator

    PDF files from InDesign do not seem to be affected. It looks like only PDFs created from Illustrator do not convert fonts to outlines.

  20. Acrobat Pro DC Needs Better ERROR Messages

    I'll first give an example then explain why Acrobat Pro DC needs better error messages.

    We often work with large PDFs (sometimes 10,000 pages or more) that are created by joining together many smaller PDFs in Acrobat Pro DC.

    Bates Numbers are applied and sometimes removed and re-applied as the document get's built.

    Sometimes something goes wrong when editing the PDF.
    For example Edit > More > Bates Numbering > Remove... gives an error "A number is out of range."

    This error unfortunately comes up for us a lot which I guess is to be somewhat expected when combining hundreds…
