  1. Invalid JSON

    I am trying to use Acrobat Fill and Sign feature to send documents to clients for signature. I go to send them and I get "Invalid JSON" as an error message. It kills to progress to the Fill and Sign process and brings me back to a fresh document. I am using this file created in Acrobat.

    I add two email addresses, add my own form language for the email description and body as I need to give info on other processes, and then click Continue and it gives the error message

    Hi Eric,

    Thanks for reporting the issue and we are sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. I tired locally and was successfully able to send the file for Signature. Could you please confirm the following :

    1. Do you see the same error with every PDF file or with this file only?
    2. Do you observe the error with this file when you do not change the subject/body with your own language?
    3. Also are you using English or some other language for Subject/Body? Did you use any special characters?

    Regards,
    Sandeep Grover

  2. Bug: Lack of text contrast in Navigation lists with Dark Theme

    I use the Dark Theme for accessibility because of light sensitivity.

    When using Dark Theme, many of the Navigation Panes (including Bookmarks, Content, Order, Tags, and probably others) display black text on a dark grey background, instead of properly switching to light colored text. I think there are other parts of the UI that have this same problem, but I can't enumerate all of them.

    The lack of contrast makes these parts of the UI effectively unusable in Dark Theme. Using low screen brightness (again, because of light sensitivity) exacerbates the issue. The bug is very easy to reproduce because…

  3. PDF Files Don't Open in Acrobat after latest windows update and/or in new Edge Browser

    When opening a PDF file from Microsoft Edge browser the file now opens using a default Microsoft pdf reader of some sort. I checked to make sure that acrobat was the default application for opening .pdf files but that makes no difference. Adobe help desk said this is because of the latest windows update and the latest adobe acrobat update as well. This is really frustrating and makes workflow inefficient. Please fix this so acrobat can be used when opening .pdf files from browsers (had same problem with Chrome so does not seem to be a browser specific problem).

    Thank…

  4. Please fix linkCreation.dotm

    Acrobat Pro (for the last several versions) continues to install linkCreation.com into MS Word directories, even though it is known to cause Word either to crash or to throw VBA errors. Please either fix the template or stop installing it.

  5. Printing/scanning issues after update 2020.009.20063

    I am working at an MSP currently. Two separate customers are experiencing issues with printing/scanning after update 2020.009.20063 on Reader and Acrobat DC.

    If you try to scan a document that is multiple pages it will freeze after the first page.

    We attempted repairs and reinstalls but were unsuccessful with both.

    Workstations are running W10.

    Thank you.

  8. Client's name in email address and in list of documents

    When sending a contract for signature to a client I would like to be able to enter or see the full name of the client, not just the email address!

    Similarly in the list of documents "out for signature" or "signed" there is no name visible. I have to open the doc to see who it is and there is not a full name (unless you have filled it in automatically which happens sometimes), only an email address!

    Thank you!

  9. Make Acrobat Pro support ARM64 processor, for example Surface Pro X. (aka AArch64, Qualcomm S1, Qualcomm S2)

    Acrobat Pro Desktop works on Windows with Intel and AMD processors, but not with ARM64 processors, so I can't use it on my Microsoft Surface Pro X. The Surface Pro X uses the Qualcomm S1 or S2 ARM64 processors which manage power better, extending battery life and keeping the device cool. Please get a team to work on ARM64 compatibility so customers with such devices can use Acrobat Pro as we did on our older devices with Intel or AMD processors.

  10. Incorrect info re attendees at weddings is not consistent with other Gov.UK info docs

    The covid-19 Winter Plan document states that there can be 15 guests attending a wedding. All other Gov.UK documents state upto 15 attending and this includes the couple. This therefore means they can only have 13 guests. We have received numerous emails stating that we are wrong (I work in a Registration Service) and that they argue they can have 2 more guests. After checking with GRO; they tell us that it is 15 to include the couple. Could this document please be amended to show accurately the number of people allowed to attend and what this includes.

  11. Multi-tasking when printing

    I have noticed that with the version I have now (2020.013.20066), That I cannot print one document and the move to the next tab to print, edit or manage that document at all. While the printing is active, one is basically locked out from the app until the printing is complete.

    This seems pretty odd as the app is obviously made to multi-task, as is the OS (in my case Windows 10) and printer (queue). Whether this has been done on purpose, or is a bug, I am not sure, so you will have to decide for yourselves if this…

  12. Method to identify which user account is used to log into Acrobat

    Hi, we've had some users that mistakenly logged into Acrobat using an account that is not their corporate account. We want to see if there are other users in our firm that are logged into Acrobat using an account other than their corporate account. It would be great if there is there way to identify which user account is currently logged into Acrobat on a particular machine.

  13. Portfolio PDFs open blank in Protected View

    Fully Close Acrobat
    Open a Portfolio PDF by double clicking on the file.

    Environment:

    Observed result:
    Acrobat opens with both the list of files and the document completely blank. The "enable all features" button appears, but does nothing when clicked…

  15. Retaining Hyperlinks and Fonts when converting MS Word document to PDF

    Software Used:
    OS: macOS Catalina Version 10.15.2
    MS Word for Mac: Version 16.32
    Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017: Version 2017.011.30166

    Issue:

    When converting a word document with hyperlinked text, a problem emerges. When using the "print to PDF" option in MS Word, the resulting PDF does not retain the hyperlinks contained in the original document. When using the "Save As PDF" function, there is a dual issue. If the "Best for printing" option is used, the resulting PDF does not retain the hyperlinks from the original document. If the "Best for electronic distribution and accessibility" option is used, the resulting PDF…

  19. remove "Try Acrobat PC Pro" button

    Please please give us an option to remove the terrible "Try Acrobat PC Pro" blue button in the tabs bar. There is already more than enough ads for it everywhere: in the tools sidebar on the right, on the home screen, etc.

    This button is taking up so much space that could be used to show more tabs! I'm so used to using Adobe and I like it but I think I will switch to another reader if this button is not removed. I even tried installing an older version of acrobat (which was a pain just to find it)…

  20. Get rid of the artifacts in Distiller PDF's

    PDF's created with Acrobat & Distiller leave unwanted artifacts that can be seen in most PDF preview apps, specially email programs & also Reader. This prevents our customers from approving our PDF's. However, PDF's created from Illustrator do NOT have these visible artifacts. Our work flow is built around Distiller to create proofing PDF's & this is a PITA to do from Illustrator. In the attached file keylines of the logo can be seen thru the product
