  2. Enable PDF download on mobile browser

    When opening a document on Adobe cloud on a mobile device web browser it doesn't offer the option to the user of downloading the file. It does offer this option in the desktop browser, however. Could this not be enabled for a mobile device as well?

  3. Missing characters after conversion of Word document to PDF

    Exporting Word documents to PDF using Acrobat PDFMaker produces a PDF document with missing characters.

    This only occurs with some fonts, such as Palatino Linotype and Book Antiqua.

    Environment: Windows 10 1909 (18363.476) French, Microsoft Word 1910 (Build 12130.20390 Microsoft Store), Acrobat DC 2019-021-20056, Convert2AdobePDF 19.21.20047.354104, Adobe PDF Library 19.21.79.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:


    • Type "L'HOMME" in a Word document, font is Palatino Linotyoe,

    • Export said Word document with PDFMaker, with all fonts embedded.

    Expected result: PDF document displays "L'HOMME"

    Observed result: PDF document displays "L'OMME"

  4. PDF pages will be hidden/show interactively

    We are evaluating the PDF feature for our customer needs, the PDF document should be displayed only a few pages and rest will be hidden, there will be two buttons at the end of the document in displayed pages, 1) Accept 2) Reverse, if user click on Accept button, hidden pages will be displayed, when he choose Reverse, then an email notification will be sent to the document author. I found that Adobe acrobat supports Javascripts but we have difficulty to find the perfect solution for the above problem.

    I want to achieve this by following steps.

    1) While writing…

  5. Add option to use file name instead of TITLE in the Adobe Acrobat Reader

    It is difficult to figure out which file is which when viewing multiple files with the same TITLE. The person using the reader is powerless to change the title.

    PLEASE provide a global preference / setting in the Reader,preferences to have the Reader use the file name all the time.

  6. Export multiple pdfs as worksheets to a single excel workbook

    It would be great to be able to export multiple pdfs simultaneously that turn into a single excel workbook with each pdf as a different worksheet

  7. No longer able to change Font settings under Comments tool

    After the update, no longer able to change font settings of comments (ie font size, font color, etc.). After reaching out to help desk, it was indicated that this can only be done in the "Edit pdf" tool which only works once comments are embedded in the document. This does not make sense as I still need the comments to be "live" so that further edits can be made in the future. This is especially upsetting as I work on pdf's that are 24X36 and need the comments to stand out but the size is so small, it gets lost…

  9. make Acrobat Pro compatible with IBM Notes version 10

    Adobe Acrobat has been compatible with the major business application like MS Outlook or Lotus/IBM Notes since a long time.

    With the version 10 of IBM Notes (that was October 2018) Adobe Acrobat 2017 is no longer compatible with this email suite.

    The PDFMaker Addin did a great job in creating PDFs from Mail.
    Unlike just "printing to PDF" the right border has not been cut when the text was too long and the PDFMaker did include all attachments from the mail into the final PDF.

    So the Adobe Acrobat was a perfect companion for documenting approvals and other buisiness…

  10. tag

    I would like to add tags to PDF files that are inside of a Windows folder and be able to filter by tags.
    At the moment, the naming convention organises the PDF files in an order that is not beneficial for us.
    Can we add tags to PDF files and filter inside of a Windows folder?

  11. Acrobat DC crashes every time I copy text in Protected Mode

    Acrobat DC 2019.012.20035
    Windows 10 1903 (18362.175)

    Acrobat DC crashes every time I simply select text in a PDF document opened in Protected Mode and choose Copy.

    If I choose to enable editing, it doesn't crash.

  12. Allow to rename multiple fields of the same type after auto generating fields.

    When I allow Acrobat to auto generate fields Acrobat named each field by the closest text, which is not always, most of the time, the best way to approach things.

    I suggest to allow renaming a group of selected items, if they are the same type. Now, when I select multiple fields, even if they are the same type, the field name and tool tip property fields are disabled.

  14. Password protected files ask for password (twice)

    Password protected files ask for password to be entered twice.



    1.  If the document is opened directly from Outlook: when user opens a password protected PDF from Outlook:
      

      • It will ask user to enter password once (the password for the file)
      • It will again seek password to enable all features in the document




    2.  If the PDF is saved from Outlook to the local machine: 
      

      • It will ask user to enter password twice same as above scenario
      • However when the same file is accessed for second time, it will not prompt for password to enable the features again,…

  15. Full Screen PDF reader/more comprehensive PDF reading capabilities

    I know many people who opt out of using Adobe Acrobat for other PDF reading applications (such as PDF Expert). They do this because they are either students or scholars who read PDF's daily and find the reading experience better away from Adobe. I am a faithful Adobe products user and do not want to spend on a different PDF reader, otherwise I would have months ago. Adobe ought to make a designated section for reading PDF's, and enable a full screen, double-page option where users can have a pleasing and comprehensive experience while engaging with their PDF's.

  16. Document title transfer from MS Word plug-in

    In the PDF Maker plug-in for MS Office, add additional controls in the PDF Preference settings to make accessible PDFs:

    Set the Display Title options to a drop-down menu with the choices of Document Title or File Name.

  17. I don't want Creative Cloud!

    Why when we want to download the Acrobat Pro DC the Creative Cloud comes with it!?

    I don't want it. If should be a option to download it only if you want it.
    Its just more time to install and trouble to unistall that.

  18. Add Alt-Text to Digital Signatures (ADA / Web Accessibility Feature)

    Accessibility checkers (such as CommonLook) reject PDFs with visible digital signatures, presumably because they lack an Alt-Text feature like standard images have.

    We have new requirements to produce all documents for web postings as being accessible, which means we cannot use digital signatures until they become compliant with accessibility requirements.

    Please add Alt-Text capabilities or another means of making digital signatures accessibility-compliant. It would be nice if default Alt-Text could be set as part of the digital signature configuration (e.g., "Signature of John Smith".

  19. Form data doesn't print from Acrobat Forms (AcroForm)

    Printing a filled-in PDF Form (AcroForm, not XFA) is unreliable.

    File / Print does not work reliably, regardless of which printer is selected (even PDF Virtual Printer) or the options for comments, etc.

    The problem is sporadic.

    Several of our clients have had this happen, and there are frequent posts on the Adobe Forums for this problem.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/Acrobat/W9-s/m-p/10668894#M222034

    Our testing results:

    -- None of the form data prints, but the form skeleton does.

    -- Some random form field data prints, but not all of it. Different field data will print each time the form is printed.

    -- Certain types of…

  20. Search Function D.C. Home Page: Flexibility on Scope of Search

    Your recent update of Acrobat DC Pro changed the scope of the search function in the search box in the upper right hand corner.

    It used to search among the title of the files in my cloud (about 10,000) on the title of the file with boolean "and" logic if I put multiple descriptors.

    Now, it searches on the titles of files AND IN THE FILES which gives back too many search results to be useful for my purposes.

    So you can understand exactly: over 3 years I have built my entire library of thousands of documents with no subdirectories…
