  1. "Edit any PDF"

    Please stop sending out emails that say it is quick and easy to edit a PDF without qualifying what is possible and what the consequences are. I have several clients who now think it is possible to edit PDFs, but the reality is that it is NOT possible to do so professionally.

    The end result of clients editing PDFs is that version control is lost from the original files that generated the PDF, artwork needs to be recreated to match the edited PDF and because there appears to be no way of tracking what the client has changed, the clients…

  2. Export to PDF with no Dialogue Box from Automated Process

    I need a way to create a PDF using an automated process that does not cause a popup window to appear. If there were a way to set the file location and file name without the dialogue box it would be very valuable to us.

    There is an application called Bullzip that provides this functionality and charges a great deal of money to provide it.

    I am attempting to use an application called Bartender to produce label images that I want saved to a file location as a pdf. The only way that I have seen it done is with…

  3. Enable a way to have a drop down menu blank (no items selected) until clicked

    Please enable a way to have the drop down menus on PDF forms blank until clicked on. If the item list has three or less items, you can click the blank space (Under dropdown properties > options > item list) but if there are four or more list items, one of them is always selected and shows on the drop down list (not blank.)

  6. 1. Default Order when combining PDF Files

    I suppose this is a new idea, because it's not really a bug. Here's the summation of my problem/idea:

    I scan files to my email using our copy machine/scanner. I then open and combine these files into single binders using AA Pro DC. To do this, I use the "Create PDF" tool from the tools menu, and then, from the "Create a PDF from any format" menu that appears, I select the "Multiple Files" and "Combine Files" option. When I click on the "NEXT" box, I can then choose to "Add Open Files," which is the option I use most…

  7. Allow the Creation of Multiple Highlight Pin Icons to Set for Different Colors

    Using CTL-E to set the Default Pin Color for the Highlight Icon is slow and requires several steps. Please allow for the creation of multiple highlight pin icons that a user can just select the required Color Highlight Icon for a one-set quick change of color.

  8. Apply Security Settings to Multiple Files

    You should be apply to apply security settings, i.e. password protect multiple files at once just like you can add a header/footer to multiple files at once.

    Dear User,

    You can create a new policy template from Protect—Encrypt—Manage Security Policies—New (create the new security settings that you want to apply) and save it as a template.
    You will still need to open the files individually and apply the template on each file. But this would be an easier way around.

  9. keyboard shortcut for Save as PDF/Print to PDF

    In Mac, I have always used Command+P+P to save anything as a PDF (i.e., print to PDF).

    Since I've installed Pro 2017 this feature no longer works. I know it works in Sierra, which is what I'm using, because it works on my other Sierra machine in which I have not installed Pro 2017. So it must be a peculiarity to Pro 2017.

  10. drag and drop

    With version "8" I was able to drag and drop pages from one window to another. Very useful when making changes to large documents. Reprint one corrected page as a single PDF page then drag and drop it into the final document, then delete to old page. I will miss being able to use this technique. It was fast and direct.

  11. Tools


    1. You should be able to "pin" tool bars of your choosing and have them automatically be in your workspace when you open a pdf.

    This use to work and now does not. It is extremely frustrating.


    1. There are way too many clicks involved to open up the navigation pane. I should not have to memorize shortcuts to do such a simple task.

  15. Add an addional field type, picture field, in the form creation feature.

    Add a new “picture” field that would allow inserting a picture type (jpg, jpg, eps, etc.) into the field. The when pasted in allow the user resizing choices such as zooming and cropping, as needed.

    I’m surprised no one has asked for this. I’m in construction and I think this would be needed for insurance forms or any field where photo documentation is being collected.

  17. Import Image for Initials

    The same options for creating a personalized signature should be made available for creating personalized initials. Specifically, I'd like to be able to import an image file of my initials. Currently, the only options are to type your initials or use the cursor to digitize them. Neither sufficiently replicates the look of real, handwritten initials.

  18. Needed : a true 64-bit version of your software

    The current 32-bit version of Acrobat Pro DC becomes corrupt within a few weeks of normal use on a 64-bit machine, which thereafter makes it increasingly frustrating to use (with difficulties saving files to new names or locations, among many other issues). I am tired of having to reinstall your software every few weeks, only to see it degenerate to the point of unusability again. I wish you would release a 64-bit version that was designed for dedicated use on a 64-bit machine.

  19. Square symbols don't always convert to check boxes

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat XI. I used to use Adobe Acrobat X, and encountered the same problem.

    I create some REALLY lengthy forms in Word. I apply a style with square bullets to text in Word to create a checkbox list. Then I convert the file to PDF, and then convert the PDF to a form. Every line has the same Word style with the same square symbol for its bullet, so there's nothing about the way I'm applying the formatting that's inconsistent.

    I've learned from trial and error that square bullets only convert to checkboxes if the font is…

    The form field detection algorithm is not perfect, and only provides a good starting point.
    You will require manual work to create fields that are not detected by Acrobat

    As a workaround, you could try inserting “Square shape” instead of bullets.
    Click Insert, click Shapes, select a shape, and then click and drag to draw the shape.

    I hope this work for you.

  20. Random missing letters appearing when editing and saving over a PDF

    I cannot upload as the information is sensitive but there seems to be a programme glitch when you are editing and then saving over PDFs. I have just attached a screen shot instead. It happens maybe 8/10 times but when you are editing the text on PDFs random missing letters appear. It seems the only way to get around this is by copying and pasting the letters back in place and this doesn't even always work. The PDFs were originally designed in Indesign and saved out as PDFs as templates to be edited afterwards. I have called Adobe many times…
