  1. Need an inbuilt way to Trigger the Action Items created in ACROBAT DC Coditionally.(This has been a request since long long long time)

    Sadly , there is no way to trigger the Custom Action Items created in Acrobat DC Conditionally:
    Examples:
    1. If the Page number is > 5 then RUN Action item else Skip.
    2. If the bookmarks are available/unavailable then RUN Action item 'x' else RUN Action item 'y'.
    3. If the Page orientation is A3 then Skip Action item.

    It gets harder because:
    Even with Custom commands it is not possible to Call/RUN an already saved Action Item.
    Example:
    if (this.numPages > 5) -> Call/Run a Action Item "eX;Set open Options" -> Then Save the file.

    You can't do it,…

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting your concern.
    As of now, Adobe scan app is not implemented for Windows. We will update you if its done in near future.
    Thanks.

  3. Nothing to do with your product. This is a complaint about your website.

    None of your business what my date of birth is. No need to ask it. Then you point a page that apparently explains and it doesn't explain.

    Also website is annoying and circular. Makes it difficult to find the right place to contact.

    Asking for DOB is a legal requirement for us. Also can you please elaborate on the issues you are facing with the website in particular.

  4. Feature request

    When you insert a page into a document, make the default directory for the document to be inserted the same as the document it is being inserted into. Or allow the user to set preferences that include this.

  5. Logical presentation of figures

    Hello

    When generating separate PDF files from a PDF with multiple pages (in my case a 240-page catalog), a number (or folio) is assigned to each page as .... x for units, ..XX for tens, .*** for hundreds, etc.
    Which gives: 1, 10, 100, etc.

    Is it possible for Acrobat to name pages rather like this: 000X, 00XX, 0XXX?
    Which would give: 0001, 0010, 0100, etc.

    List files for a Windows user do not appear in logical order and the user is forced to rename the PDFs by adding zeros in front of the units and tens (a time-consuming job).

  6. Conversion of RGB/Spot to CMYK

    PDF does not finish converting Spot / RGB colors to CMYK/
    This is when using preflight fixes or convert color under Print Production Tools.
    Acrobat freezes most of the time, or when I try to Save as.

  7. Crash Crash Crash it is like watching a NASCAR Martinsville Race.

    I do not know what your programmers did to the Adobe products in the 2018 version but all Acrobat and Illustrator keep doing is crashing my computer. I reinstalled 2017 Illustrator but there is not a rollback for Acrobat. Please tell your programmers that "Just because you can does not mean you should"

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing, next time you see Acrobat crash, can you please save the crash logs and attach them here, it will help us to narrow down the issue.

  8. AABDC needs 'Smart Lookup' capabilities like what is in MS Word 2016 to be able to look up phrases, not just SINGLE words.

    AABDC needs 'Smart Lookup' capabilities like what is in MS Word 2016 to be able to look up phrases, not just SINGLE words.

    I want to be able to highlight something such as a persons name and then 'right click' on it and have a 'drop down' link to Google search the name or other selected phrases.

  12. Send & Track Personalized Email Message

    Allow users to edit and save a new default email Subject and body Message when using Send & Track. This is useful for those companies that send PDF files on a regular basis with a particular form letter attached to the file. Currently, we have to cut and paste our message into the default form each time. It would be nice to eliminate this step.

  13. Advanced Print Options Do Not Save Correctly in Custom Profiles

    In Acrobat XI Pro and Acrobat DC, when using the Advanced settings in Print, items such as Screening do not actually persist with saved custom profiles. If you select settings and save it under a new profile, switch to another and then view the profile where you had the desired settings, the settings will be found to never have saved in the first place.

    Additionally there is no way to save these custom profiles as a default.

  16. Vector Rasterise

    Rasterise all vectors option in the export PDF dialogue window.

    I use lots of detailed vector files in my layouts and when producing PDF's for approval this can be an issue as the files sizes can be too big to send back and forth over email. There are numerous work arounds but none really give a seamless document flow that should happen. Making a JPEG of my files and placing those instead of eps or ai files can be a headache also.

  17. Running Sierra 10.12.6. Acrobat pro won't open properly.

    Acrobat pro won't open properly on my iMac running Sierra 10.12.6.
    I can see it in the menu bar at the top of the screen, but it won't open any further than that.
    I have been able to click on file-open and managed to open a file, but none of the tool functions work.

    Apologies for the trouble, can you provide the Acrobat version you are using. Also please provide the following logs:

    “~/Library/Logs/Adobe/Acrobat Update Helper DC.log”

    “~/Library/Logs/Adobe/Acrobat Updater DC.log”

    “/Var/log/install.log”

  18. There was a problem reading this document (109)

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