  1. designer's pdf inspector

    It would be great to have a pdf inspection mode to easily select items in the pdf and get printing specs on it like the ink type (pms, cmyk) and color used (pms 281, C100M60Y0K6), the font, the resolution of an image as dpi at the current used size, etc.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. We have recorded it in our database.

    However,Before printing you can check default value through:
    Go to ‘PrintProduction>outputPreview’
    Select ObjectInspector from preview drop down and you can check default value.
    Hope this will serve you purpose.
    Please keep updating.

    Best Regards!

  2. Combine Files and Organize Pages converts some text into block shapes

    When I use the Combine Files or Organize Pages Tool, some text in the PDF files, in which all text had displayed correctly, is converted to square block shapes. The problem seems to correlate with the size of the combined file. As file size increases, more text is converted to square block shapes.

  3. Inability to file pdf files in alphabetical order

    I have recently upgraded my Mac operating system to Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Since doing this, I am unable to use the Mac Finder in alphabetical order to drag and drop / file pdf's from Adobe Acrobat Pro onto my Mac flash storage (the folders are no longer in alphabetical order and are displayed in a random mixed order). The same applies when you print to pdf and then try and file on Finder.

    I would note that Finder itself accessed directly (i.e. not through Adobe) works as it is designed to and you can select any of…

    Hi,
    How files/folder are sorted in any finder window is solely the business of your operating system and not Actobat. Are you facing this just with Adobe PDFs?

  4. inserting a blank page throughout a document at specified increments.

    In a large PDF document, having the capability to insert a blank page or a specified page at certain intervals throughout the document would be a great time saver.

  5. Exporting files to Word automatically defaults to "Do not spell check" .

    When exporting a PDF to Word, the files automatically default to Turn Spell Check off. This has caused numerous errors in my documents as spell check is an necessary function. This is under the Review tab, language Function in Word. I don't understand why Adobe would default to that. It did not used to do that. At the very least, you should offer the option to the individual doing to conversion to have the choice in their setup.

  6. Adobe Send & Track Add-in for Outlook stops email signature coming through when sending PDFs

    Installation of Adobe Add-in for Send & Track should not be automatic. It blocks the email signature of the user in Outlook 2013 from appearing when he/she wants to send a PDF by email directly from Adobe or other program which uses the Outlook API

  7. STOP with the advertising/up-sell notifications!

    When I open a PDF, I expect to be able to interact with it as soon as it loads, not have to wait 15 seconds while a stupid up-sell overlay loads and then have to close that before I can actually READ the PDF. That should be in a newsletter, not in the app.

  9. Compare Documents function not catching noticeable document changes

    Bug report: Acrobat Pro Compare documents is missing noticeable changes from the old document to new document using the "Reports, spreadsheets, magazine layouts" option.

    Can be reproduced by using the Compare Documents feature and comparing an older document to a newer document.

    Version: 2015 Release (Classic) 2015.006.30355
    OS: Windows 10, Windows 7, Server 2012R2

    Expected Result: Compare documents feature should catch noticeable changes in the document from the old document to new document.

    I attached a screenshot of an area missed by the compare feature (highlighted in red circle), if needed I can provide the 2 documents used to compare.…

  10. javascript window expired

    I can't open PDFs, I tried everything from disabling javascript, turning protected mode off, to formatting my laptop. It always pops out with a javascript window expired. I've attached a photo below. If I disable javascript I am able to open the file but there is no content, if it is enabled then once I open the file it the pop up appears and when I click ok it closes the file.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. Kindly share with us specific details of the issue you are facing”.

  12. Make it possible to toggle Highlight or Comment icons from on to off

    When one clicks the highlight icon or comment icon (accidentally or on purpose) one is committed to doing more highlighting or commenting. The best one can do right now is click some other icon. One wants to go back to just selecting text. (The same should hold for other icons.)

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  18. 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.

    Can you share the versions of Acrobat|Outlook you are using.
    Also check if the file: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 2015\Acrobat\PDFPrevHndlr.dll” is present on your machine, if not please repair your product,
