  4. I need to darken the text for a light object, but that is apparently impossible.

    Adobe Acrobat used to have a feature to darken text. What happened?

  5. Adobe "Browse for file/folder" function is poorly designed

    in the new versions of Adobe, the browse for folder function - to open or save a file - is useless. Contrast it to every other conventional windows application, looking more like Windows Explorer where you can easily navigate to a folder, subfolder, file - but in Adobe, it immediately requires scrolling down, then selecting, scrolling down more, selecting a subfolder, etc.

  6. Found Hang in Acrobat Send File function with current version of Outlook

    Hi, I found a hang in current release Adobe Acrobat DC (2017.012.20095) when working with Microsoft Outlook on the Mac OS X. I've reproduced on two different Mac models with different versions of the OS. (10.12.6 and 10.12.4) and different versions of Outlook (15.37 and 15.28). This started happening very recently so the problem has to be in a recent update and I think it is because we upgraded Acrobat to the latest on the effected machines.

    Steps to reproduce primarily setup related. We heavily use the Share menu so that we can mail PDF files quickly as they are…

  8. Acrobat Pro Installer should identify error cause

    Downloaded Adobe Acrobat Pro v. 17 purchased via order 142075619 on a MacPro desktop running OS 10.9.5 (Maverick). I used the serial number posted. Near the end of the installation process it says that it cannot be completed because of an error. But it does not explain what error it is. Checked disk for permission problems, tried again, same error. I am at a loss because the installer does not identify the error.
    Please advice how to proceed.

  13. Ugh.... I hate this new interface. Where is my comment text box with arrow???

    Is there anyway to go back to the prior view? I understand that sometimes updates need to be done, however, existing functionality should not be taken away.

  16. I cannot hit the Save As button. It just gets stuck in limbo

    When exporting PDF's or trying to save any document for the first time, the SAVE AS option is not working. It just turns white and gets stuck in limbo.

  17. I just purchased CS6 Design & Web Premium but Acrobat Pro fails to install

    I just installed CS6 Design & Web Premium but Acrobat Pro fails to install - period. I've tried 4 times now with the same failure (see attached screenshot). The website says I have 90 days of "Chat and Phone support" - but the support website is in an infinite loop - you never get a button to "chat" and no phone number is ever offered. How do I get help getting this installed?

  18. Print to PDF

    Google Chrome = Latest Version
    Acrobat X Pro
    Observation: Had no problem prior until 7/28/2017 when I noticed I had problem printing from a webpage (e.g. eBay.com) to PDF using Adobe Acrobat print driver. The printing would stall and this Distiller error would show up each time. Also strange is, I could clear this error message other than restarting my computer. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

  20. UI Scaling on Surface Pro needs attention

    I am using Adobe Acrobat on a Surface Pro 2. The scaling is horrible, with dialog boxes too big for the screen and options inaccessible. I gather the height of the Surface Screen is not within your specification. Please can you enhance the dialog boxex so they display fully on the screen. I also use Captivate and this is fine. Dialog boxes display properly.
