  3. Acrobat crashes when copying text

    Acrobat crashes when copying text -- no error message appears, application just closes. Document is fairly large (~1000 pages), created in Adobe FrameMaker. Acrobat only crashes if document is tagged -- if all tagging is removed, we are able to copy text easily.

  4. Reduce Icon Size

    Toolbar Icons are insanely large. Unable to modify or alter in any way (I've reviewed forums for info, and when I follow steps in "Preferences>General>Scale for screen resolution..." there are no options for me on any of my Windows 10 machines. It's like, cartoonishly large and very distracting.

    Hi,

    Apologies for the issue that you are facing with the Acrobat Toolbar icons size.

    Could you please check if this is the concern that you are facing only with the last update of Acrobat or is it something that you observe for quite some time previously as well ?

    Also, could you please attach a snapshot of what exactly do you face the issue with for icons size ?

  5. new interface is terrible - please give option of classic view

    I am a long time user of the creative suite and acrobat pro and have been intentionally not upgrading to DC because the interface is so aweful but now I have been forced to upgrade and I cannot stress how terrible it is. It's been around long enough for the feedback about how aweful it is to get back to you guys to fix the problem. Please fix it and add an option for classic view. It also looks an educational game for kindergarteners which I wouldn't even mind if it were easier to use. Please fix already.

  6. Corrupted hyperlinks from Word 365 to PDF

    I have a very annoying problem converting Word documents to PDF.

    I use a lot of hyperlinks to PDF documents right into the Word document, then I export the Word document using Create Adobe PDF command in the ribbon.
    I've noticed that when I the link points to a PDF with a filename with two or less characters the resulting PDF have a broken link.
    I mean that when I link PDF file like "0.pdf" or "00.pdf" the link is broken, whereas "000.pdf" is correct.

    I'm using Windows 10 with the lastest Acrobat DC and Office 365.

  7. Add proper LongPath support

    Adobe fails to open files when a file path & name exceed MAX_PATH. Windows no longer has a hard path character limit if the LongPathsEnabled key is set in the registry. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/fileio/naming-a-file#maximum-path-length-limitation

    Modern applications are adopting this new standard with the mentioned file management hooks provided by the OS.

    Adobe is falling behind in this regard. Please add proper Long Path support.

  8. Adobe keeps crushing after certain time of usage.

    When multiple files are open after certain time everything freezes and crushes. I did repair the software but it didn't fix the issue.

  10. Need to be able to save a prepared Adobe Sign, and PREVIEW for QC, after completing Step 2 prior to sending

    Need to be able to save a prepared Adobe Sign, and PREVIEW for quality control, after completing Step 2 of adding signature blocks prior to sending. Example: I built out the signature piece and wanted to SAVE it for Review with my client of where to sign BEFORE I sent it to client for signatures. I was unable to do either of these. As a result, I felt nervous sending the document out to client because I was forced to send it directly after my first pass of prepping for signatures. I tried to create a template and that was…

  11. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC crashes when reducing file size

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC crashes when reducing file size. I get no error message, no compressed file is produced, the original file is unaltered. This happens on multiple different files and is not associated with one particular file. Typically my files have been created originally from a word document (including images), and then have other PDFs inserted as additional pages which originate from excel and autocad.

    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10
    OS Version: 10.0.18362
    Acrobat Version: 20.6.20042.371103

  12. remove all the tool icons and replace them with text only menus

    I recently had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro and I would like to be able to remove the icons and replace them with text only menus. If I wanted to look at hieroglyphs I would tune in the Stargate series on MeTV.

    Is there a way to change preferences or an add-on that will remove the box-of-crayons-colors icons and display text menus automatically? I don't use the application often enough to memorize the mouse-over texts. It's tiresome enough dealing with texter's shortcut abortions of the English language these days. I'd rather not have to play a game of Concentration when…

  14. Remove buttons on (left) Navigation Pane

    It is very easy to add buttons to left Navigation pane. However, you cannot remove individual buttons.

    The only option is to Reset the pane returning the three original buttons (thumbnails, bookmarks, attachments).

    It seems there should be a way to remove individual buttons at will (not just reset).

    Thank you

  15. White font that I can't change

  16. tabs

    Hi,
    On Windows, suppose if i have 4 tabs open on Acrobat Pro DC, when i navigate my arrow on the Acrobat icon on the task bar, it shows 4 different windows preview of the tabs open. This looks really messy when lots of tabs are open. This also prevents me from doing one click to minimise and one click to maximise window because when i click on the acrobat icon on task bar it shows me preview window of tab and i have to click again.

    On Chrome or firefox, even if i have 50 tabs open, when i…

  18. Adobe not recognising subscription for education users

    I was advised that there is an existing bug (Cl217) on this but it does not appear to be resolved. Quick read on support community shows this issue has not been resolved since before 2018.

    I am being told I need to upgrade my subscription to create unlimited PDFs. When I click "Subscribe Now" it takes me to the payment page and tells me I already own the product.

    Consultants on the chat cannot help after over 5 hours of contact and 10 different consultants.

    Please resolve.

  19. Let apps run in the background

    When I set Acrobat to run a task like text recognition for example, I don't want to sit there and watch the program do that. So I go to do something else on my computer. But Acrobat, and other Adobe programs continually push themselves to the foreground forcing me to wait while a task finishes. Why?

  20. Batch processing action to run with less input

    Currently, actions in Acrobat DC require continual input as they are running. For example, I have an action that adds a watermark and restricts editing with a password. All of that information including the password was entered into the action when I created it. When the action runs, I have to approve the watermark for each document, and enter the password (twice) for each document. I'm not sure why the whole process can't run itself once I select the files on which the action should be performed.
