  1. Preference option to minimize RH Tools pane on file open in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    In a preferences option such that the Tools pane (on right hand sight of document window) will or will not display on PDF file open.

    his will save time for what I anticipate is a large percentage of users that open PDF documents to read / comment without necessarily using the tools pane on RH side of the window.

  4. Colors wiped out in most recent release.

    I am in Acrobat DC
    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 17.9.20044.222436
    AGM: 4.30.69
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.38123

    I am looking at a file from a vendor for approval. My manager sees a 16% cyan in the background of this file on two pages. She is in Acrobat Pro X.
    I do not see this 16% cyan. It does not register in the Output Preview panel that there is any cyan on these pages. 0%. We are looking at the exact same PDF file.

    What is going on?

  7. Error 1328

    Over and over waste time downloading and trying to install patch to file C:\config.msi\PT56F8.tmp. It has probably been updated by other means, and can no, longer be modified by this patch. This error comes from Adobe Updater, and has occurred repeatedly over the past several months. Nuisance time waster, and BIG interruption of task in progress. Would appreciate correcting sloppy programming.

  9. Expandable (and/or pop-out) "FIELDS" Pane When Editing a Form

    (See attachment)
    It would be great to be able to grab and pull the left edge of the FIELDS pane over to the left to widen it. Some of the text field names can be very long and can look identical to others unless you can see the whole title. (I know you can hover over the title to see the full text but that only seems to work intermittently, and is time-consuming).
    Also, when scrolling up and down or when trying to grab and move titles to rearrange the tab order, it's easy to get confused and lose your…

  10. Show/Hide Toolbars at the top of the screen

    Could you please re-add in the option to select which toolbars you wish to see on the menu bar area of the program? I am sick of having to click out of my document, look for the right option, and then search for what I want to do. I used to have my regularly used toolbars selected at the top of the screen, so I didn't have to go searching for them. This creates a lot of wasted clicks, time and effort on the part of the user. This is by far the worst version of Acrobat I've ever used,…

  12. Protected PDF

    Currently, if you PDF a document and added the current Protection features in order to stop it from being converted back to Word. You can actually upload it to many PDF to Word converters on the internet and it will convert the PDF document back to Word without asking for the password. So a better security feature is needed. Especially for company sensitive documents that I want to PDF, protect and stop anyone from converting back to word.

    Resolved  ·  cdas responded

    Dear User,

    While implementing password protection, Acrobat warns user that ,third party apps may not honor the permissions that are being set on the file. Please open the file in Acrobat/Reader itself to honor the permissions.
    Or you can protect the document with certificate .

  13. Fullscreen Mode bug on Mac

    When I open a file and go into fullscreen (e.g. by clicking the green expand button in the corner) the screen changes as expected. Then if I switch screens and return back to my fullscreen view the screen is no longer filled with the application but instead I get the regular size and black bars on top and bottom.

  14. Startup window should open at Startup AND when all PDFs are closed

    It's good for those of us who utilize Document Cloud and Creative Cloud to have the startup window with access to these files. However, if you close all of the PDFs you have open, this window is no where to be found unless you quit and restart the application (unless it's hiding somewhere in a menu, but why would that be?).

  15. 64 bit IE plugin - required to run IE 11 with Enhanced Protected Mode

    Adobe Reader XI was given a 64 bit IE plugin in patch 11.0.7, but the 64 bit IE plugin has not been included with Adobe Acrobat XI.


    1. 64 bit IE plugin - required to run IE 11 with Enhanced Protected Mode

    2. Include the same 64 bit IE plugin, that was added to Adobe Reader XI in patch 11.0.7, to Adobe Acrobat XI

    3. Verified in Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2

    4. When IE 11 is configured with Enhanced Protected Mode, sites that are in the Trusted Zone open in a 32-bit process and will use the 32 bit IE plugin. Sites…

  16. Wider Outlook Portfolio Creation Tools

    The current Adobe plugin for Outlook 2016 works very well when creating portfolios from a group of emails. I'm able to add as many emails as I want to a single portfolio and the ability to append them when more emails come in is excellent. But these portfolios can only be added to from Outlook. It is important that I am able to add files to these Outlook portfolios without having to email them to myself first.

    Hi

    Thanks for your request. But this is as designed behavior because non-email PDF files won’t have fields like To:, From:, etc. which will create inconsistency in the PDF Portfolio.
    So the workaround would be to email those files and convert/append to portfolios.

    Thanks

  17. Problems with Icon Rendering on Folder-Level Javascripts in Acrobat DC

    My folder-level javascripts place icons on the toolbar using an iconstream. These exact scripts have worked in every version of Acrobat and Reader I have used for several years on both PC and Mac platforms.

    In Acrobat DC, the icons behave erratically, sometimes rendering appropriately and sometimes only showing the red Lego-like shape icons rather than the true icon.

    The scripts still function properly when invoked by clicking the Lego-like shape icons, but the lack of the scripts' appropriate icons decreases their effectiveness.

    I have removed the folder-level scripts, restarted the system and Acrobat and then re-installed the scripts with…

  18. Please make it possible to 1.) import a word doc with images that remain at 300 dpi 2.) check the dpi of images in a PDF

    Just to expand the thought above. Many people are online searching for ways to do this. I was told in an Adobe chat that it was not possible. You all are brilliant -- can't you make it possible?

  19. eliminate DC function from DC.

    remove the DC function from acrobat DC so users cannot access cloud files. this is a grave security risk. the feature has to an option at installation time so a user cannot switch it on.
