  1. Add a "Find and Replace ALL" button to find and replace menu

    It would be an awesome idea to add a "Find and replace ALL" instances of the found sentence/word when in the find menu (the one circled in the screenshot). We know that acrobat is not a "word for pdfs" but can be useful if a product name or feature was to be slightly changed or translated and it is repeated many times. That surely would save users's time.

  2. Save as Adobe PDF without active Hyperlinks in Office applications

    We are trying to create a PDF document without active Hyperlinks since the PDF will be sent to external sources and persons.
    We/I have tried to use Save as Adobe PDF, print to Adobe PDF and other options through Adobe utility but all document created do have active hyperlinks in them.
    We do not wish to have users click on the hyperlink and navigate to that particular site.
    Current workaround is to create a PDF, open the PDF in Acrobat Pro and save it again.
    We cannot ask our people to do that manually each time for each document since…

  3. Allow Duplex Printing for Duplex enabled Printers from DC

    I can print in duplex from my Brother MFC-J835DW printer when printing from every other program I can think of and Adobe on the web, the fact that I cannot from Adobe DC when I pay to use this software? Get with it and join the 21st century, I ESPECIALLY want duplex capability in ADOBE as most large files and forms that require printing are typically shared as pdf files and I certainly don't want to be wasteful or kill excess trees, but it would certainly appear this isn't a concern of Adobe, noted guess it is time to look…

  5. Merge PDF - Adobe Acrobat Online (web version)

    Hello Adobe,

    I just noticed that you guys have a pretty nice PDF tool online. I use online PDF tools more than my desktop tools as sometimes I am on architecture like ARM that does not have the features I need. I love the export features of the online acrobat.

  6. Enable Accessibility options automatically during save.

    We need a way to setup adobe Pro to automatically utilize the accessbility scanner when saving a doc to become more ADA compliant.

    Out of the box, this should be a feature we can turn on.

    Hi,
    Thanks for connecting with us. I have raised your request to the higher management. We do not plan to implement in the near future but we have kept it in our bucket and you may see it future releases.

    Thanks

  7. Transparency Flattener kills cross references and table of contents (TOC)

    In a PDF produced from InDesign, with TOC and cross references, if I run the Transparency Flattener, the links in the TOC and in cross references stop working.

    I should be able to run the Transparency Flattener while still preserving these links.

  8. Creating "Anyone" or "Everyone" signature fields

    Hi,
    I think it'll be easier to let the persons who were sent the pdf to sign insert themselves their e-mail address when they'll be signing.
    Why do this?
    When we need to send a document to be sign by more than 50, 100 or even 200 persons (when we need to check the presence of people at a webinar event, for instance) it's too long to do it now in Adobe Sign. We need to select and drag a signature field for each and everyone of them.

  9. As a user who works with panorama images, I need the possibility merge two or more pages into one.

    I don't need A3, A4, A0 or any other specif printable size because everything is digital nowadays. I need the possibility to merge two or more pages into one. Panorama is a good start.

  10. As a user who works with engineering drawings, I need OCR for wider / panorama images.

    As of today, it is not possible to run OCR for wider images. Please re-consider this limitation.

    This is also a topic in the support community.

  11. Partial OCR is dumped from cropped image after re-running OCR on the remaining image

    In order to run OCR for wider images, some users suggested a workaround to crop the image, run OCR for the first half, then restore the image to the original size, crop again the second half, then run OCR again and finally restore the image to its orignal size.

    There are two bugs with this approach:
    1) It is only possible to restore the image to its original size when using the option "Searchable Image (Exact)".
    2) After re-running the OCR for the second half of the file, the OCR for the first half is dumped.

    This is also a…

  13. Support case-sensitive file systems

    Please support case-sensitive file systems. I have a requirement to use case-sensitive file systems, including the boot partition on my MacBook Pro. The only software that I cannot use is Adobe Acrobat, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I see this issue has been going on for over five years. Please fix this. Otherwise, I just won't be buying/subscribing to Adobe products.

  14. Acrobat Pro DC - Sometimes Holds Lock on File after closing it

    Hi,

    Arobat Pro DC closes file OK, but sometimes appears to keep the file locked against changes in Windows (Win10, 64bit, fully updated May2020) etc

    Win 10 \ Windows Explorer is prevented from modifying the parent folder name (for example).

    Does not always happen. Closing Acrobat Pro DC appears to release the file (in that it allows changes to the filepath etc using Windows Explorer etc).

    This is similar to issue reported usign Acrobat READER.

    The Windows Preview tab is NOT showing
    (that Win10 bug (?) is a known issue, but relevant here).

    Regards
    L

  15. When I have a starred file open, it does not allow me add it to my combined documents like I could before.

    I used to be able to open a starred file, then create other pages, and combine. The program fixed it but then went back to not allowing the combine to happen. Then I have to search for the document in old history which can be hard to find.

  16. Make Adobe Acrobat Pro available for iPad.

    It would be ideal if you could download an Adobe Acrobat Pro App for the iPad Air or Pro. Especially with the use of Apple's magic Pen, I can just envision how easy it would be to edit, comment, mark up, or sign documents if this integration came to life. I personally work with a lot of PDF documents sent from design firms (i.e. furniture layouts, spec sheets, etc). I would love to have the ability to create block plan layouts, sketch and doodle or add notes to a construction/furniture layout on the iPad air (with the magic pen) through…

  17. BUG: Combine tool alters original text of PDFs to match 1 of the set.

    When combining pdfs the binder file has altered the text of the originals to match on of the set.

    The pdfs are similar format with pictures. The pictures remain unaltered, but the text is copied from one pdf to all the others that are similar.

  18. Auto create bookmark destination by page number

    I create documents for court that have many pages and require many bookmarks. There should be a way to auto create the page destination for each bookmark.

    I use javascript to create the bookmark and to create the page destination. However, that inserts one line of javascript in set action such as "this.pageNum = 12" which works fine.

    However the NYS courts now will not permit a document to be uploaded with even one line of javascript.

    I do not know about the other states, but NY has this rule.

    An automatic was, maybe with javascript, would be a big…

  19. Being able to reopen a document due to person messing up

    I've had two instances so far where being able to reopen the document would have been advantageous instead of canceling the contract and starting all over again.

    The first time was when the signer filled in the wrong information and the second time was the last signer, the official signer was unable to complete her signature, something happened and only two letters of her name was recorded on the document.

  20. Saving personal window layouts

    Hi Adobe,

    Mostly I am using Acrobat to check Output. I am total angry because Acrobat doesn't remember my last window setting. I have to always to click 'Print Productions' button and - it is the most boring - I have to always click to smart triangle at left mid to open left sidebar and have to click to open Page thumbnails.

    Acrobat should remember the last state or some setting menu to turn on my favourite window layout..

    Very thx
