  1. Fill and sign loses data

    I fill data in a PDF form and save the changes. When I return to the document at a later stage, and make a single change, I lose all the previous data entered, only retaining the last change. It is annoying to lose all your typed data.

    Luckily I save it in Dropbox, so can get back to original revisions.

  2. Unable to paste comments from one page to another page

    Found a bug

    Software Acrobat Pro DC
    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 18.9.20050.254034
    AGM: 4.30.72
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.39492

    OSX 10.11.6 (15G18013)

    In previous versions of Acrobat, it was possible to copy and paste not only written (text) comments, but it was possible paste lines, boxes, ovals, clouds and other comment features from one page to another page.

    This is of importance because we use Acrobat to mark up floor plan drawings and send those comments back to the Architect for review and correction. The current version of Acrobat, as far as I am concerned, is broken because it no longer permits…

  4. Time sensitive PDF files.

    To use a time scale to limit PDF files being used or viewed even if they have been uploaded to a Web Page.

    We have a very High Profile Client who has requested that we provide a service whereby he can stop people viewing his PDF files after a specified time scale. At present they have to monitor the numerous websites where their PDF file have been uploaded to and request that that are taken down. They want this function to automatically stop the PDF from being viewed.

    Could you elaborate on the problem you are facing and exact steps to reproduce the problem?

  6. End brackets won't go away

    I have a lease document where the end brackets mysteriously stick around on one page. The tag works fine when uploaded to Adobe Sign but the brackets are still there. All of the tags and brackets work fine in other parts of the document (even with the extra spaces at the end between the text and end brackets).

    Here are the shortcut tags I used for the bottom two:

    {{#propertyAddress=propertyAddresses:prefill:font(size=auto)}}
    {{#startDate=
    startDatees:prefill:isdate}}

    I also tried taking out "font(size=auto)" on both tags, but that didn't seem to help.

    Currently using Mac Sierra, Adobe InDesign CC2018, and Adobe Acrobat Pro.

  7. Kindle/KDP/Amazon reformats PDFs to fit its tiny format. Results have errors--photos resized and scattered, text overlays text,

    KDP/Kindle/Amazon reformats PDFs badly--photos are scattered + mal-sized, text overlaid other text (espec. after photos). Could Adobe put attention on this problem, plz. Editing PDF in Adobe does not solve problem. (Consider: Would creating smaller original PDFs (in Kindle size, for instance) make converting to Kindle, or any small format, more accurate?)

  8. To HIDE page thumbnails every time I open a pdf

    Please set up a layout feature where I could choose if I want page thumbnails to be open every time I work with a pdf file. In fact, I prefer to hide page thumbnails pane when I open pdf documents. If want to use this pane, I can always click on the left arrow.

  9. You just keep making it harder

    Everytime you make an update you make it harder for me to find my edit document button. I just opened one and absolutely none of the icons or right click provides me with edit. Finally I find if I highlight text THEN hit right click I get the menu that allows me to edit. Why take down the one in the header and make me have to do additional steps (highlighting) to be able to edit. I hate when companies adopt the Microsoft culture of calling "improvements" just moving essential commands and options around and saying it's new. At least…

    Hi,

    Sorry for the trouble that you are facing here.
    you can easily use the edit app from the Right hand Panel Menu, Tools center and even on Searching for “edit” in the Tools search in RHP when any doc is launched.

    Let me know if you see any confusion here ?

  12. PDF pages simply go blank after 60+ mins

    I have users that are experiencing the above described issue. They open up a single PDF, or multiple PDFs, and if they are left open for 60 mins or longer, all pages in the PDFs go blank.

    Acrobat DC Pro (2015.006.30355), Windows 10, Microsoft Surface.
    We are expecting the PDF pages to be available the entire time the PDF is open.
    We've observed that it happens with multiple PDFs and requires the user to close all PDFs and reopen to resolve.

  15. Better support for VDI/Virtualized environments

    Now that users need to authenticate towards the Creative Cloud it should be possible to be able to roll out Adobe products on VDI environments utilzing Non Persistent Linked clones.

    The problem is that Adobe still uses the machine ID in the licensing. In a non persistent environment the machine ID changes each time the user logs on. Instead Adobe should re-authenticate the user and activate the Adobe products each time a user log on. Information about the users credentials should be stored in the roaming part of the userprofile.

  16. Incorrect PDF generated by distiller

    When distilling attached Postscript the generated PDF shows error when opening. I have narrowed it down to an image which has imagemask set to true as well as mask array in it. This is incorrect as per specification.

    I am using Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0.

  17. Absolutely Unusable

    I am running Windows 10. Since the last Adobe Acrobat Pro update, the program has been absolutely awful. Opening a document is a minute long process much less doing anything else to it. I had to download another program to be able to view PDFs for work. Very frustrating. Been like this for at least a month.

  18. S-L-O-W is how to describe the latest version. Hoping to find an alternative product. Used to love Acrobat.

    Running Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC on Windows 7 Professional. Every click to open, close, save, can turn into an eternity of "Acrobat not responding". Hope it can be fixed.

  19. Learning how to use my subscription

    After 2 years and 7 months I am just learning that I have to be signed in to use my subscription to Acrobat Dc properly. Maybe this is understood but it would have been nice if it was explained back in 2015. I have been using software that works sometime and not others. I found it hard to edit or save files at times and thought the software was a beta version (not fully tested)
