  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

    No update from user.
    Does not seem to be product issue.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. Custom Toolbars

    It seems ironic that Acrobat Pro DC allows for the creation of custom toolbars, which it states can be shared with other users, when in fact there is no means currently available to share any such user enhancement. It also seems unusual that any user created toolbar is not saved to a file which the user can access so as to allow that toolbar to be instantly recreated by him/her on another machine to which s/he has access. Finally, it is also frustrating that any user-created toolbar is placed on the bottom of the list of available toolbars in the…

  14. Read out loud

    Because of my dyslexia, I would benefit from Adobe reading the text aloud as I scan the words. But it never works! How can I get the “Read Aloud” function to work?

  15. Option for name other than login

    It would be nice if I could enter a name to use under Identity and could indicate to use this name regardless of how I am signed into acrobat. This way, comments added using my business or personal copy of Acrobat could show the exact same name. Thank you.

  16. Daily vanishing of Adobe applications Manager

    I have fully paid Acrobat Pro DC for Windows PC. Inspite of this Adobe treats me as illegal user, makes me download AAM (around 86 MB). Then tells me that my copy of Acrobat is valid for 00 days. Mkaes me re-register the copy everyday. They have most incompetent customer care, which make you go in loop for hours without any solutions.

    Do you get any sadistic pleasure in making your customers keep downloading acrobat everyday?

    Are there any human beings I can talk to? or all only looped computers?

    I want the comment tools to remain as a toolbar. At present it goes away every time I close a document, and I have to bring it back every time I open a new document.

  19. Can't select all instances of an Advanced Search (ctrl+shift+F).

    When doing an advanced search (ctrl+shift+F), you used to be able to search for a string (which it still does) and select all of those instances in the PDF (no longer highlights every instance; need to do one-by-one). This was a quick & useful feature for highlighting all instances of a certain text string in a PDF drawing.
