  1. OCR function improvement.

    Hello,

    I have noticed that some of the other OCR software performs better than Adobe Acrobat DC OCR function... i.e. Power PDF. I wonder if you can improve it's functionality as far as recognizing the characters is concerned?...

    Regards,
    Jeff Paarsa

  3. Export multiple PDFS to .txt at the same time.

    I am currently trying to convert around 400 pdf documents to .txt files. In regular Acrobat Reader DC I can open multiple files but I cannot save them as .txt. Meanwhile I can save the PDFs as .txt files in Acrobat PRO DC but I can only do them 1 at a time. Am I missing a step or can PRO just not convert multiple files at a time?

  7. Has the PDFMaker Crashing MS 2016 and MS Office 365 Issue Been Fixed?

    Has the issue with PDFMaker crashing with Office 2016 and Office 365 on Windows been fixed? The workaround provided in your article acknowledging this issue (see link below) did not suffice, and we had to remove the Acrobat plugin from our MS Office 365. In so doing, we lost the added bookmarking features available via your plug in. The rules for California Court Filings require bookmarking, which that plug in helps automate.

  9. Disable Recent Files Option

    When closing out of Adobe, please make it possible to disable File Lists window. If I'm closing a document and there's no others open, I would like to not have to close another window.

  10. Stop putting a locked shortcut on the desktop

    It's annoying to have a desktop shortcut appear when I didn't ask for one, especially since it requires admin privileges to delete. At least give non-admin users the option to delete it.

  13. Auto Tag a Single Page

    Acrobat's new Autotag utility re-tags the entire document.

    Sometimes most of the PDF is fine and I just need to correct one page or a portion of content that I've selected.

    But we can't do that: right now, it's all or nothing.

    Give us the option to autotag the entire document, a single page, or the content we have selected with our cursor. Keep the other tags that are already in the PDF.

  14. List Tag

    When creating a List structure, a "Create List..." menu/dialog box would be helpful. You could specify the number of levels and sublevels if need be, and Acrobat would automatically create the proper tag structure for that list. It is very tedious currently to manually create the tag structure with multiple levels.

  15. Adobe Reader reads dashes as "to" and not "dash." Not always accurate.

    Adobe Reader reads dashes as "to" and not "dash." Not always accurate, my organization uses Figures denoted 3-1. this should be read "three dash one" not "three to one".

  16. Create option for email icon to send as attachment with default email always

    Email button on the tool bar requires 2 more click than in the previous version. This is extremely clunky if you spend a lot of time sharing multiple pdfs with multiple people.

    Now you have to click the letter button > Send as attachment> Use default email. Compared to just clicking the icon.

  17. accessibility reading order

    When I drag a box around the text Adobe isn't marking it as a reading order item. Sometimes if I drag it a second time it works, but sometimes it doesn't.

  18. Cursor appearance when OCring

    When OCRing a document and you move to another program to allow the OCR to continue, the cursor is still the watch. This makes working in other programs difficult. The watch should only take over the cursor when you are actually in Adobe.

  19. The accessibility reader tool is incomprehensible

    I tried to have adobe acrobat read a pdf for me today. I wanted to rest my eyes and listen to the document instead of reading it. I was unpleasantly surprised to find out that the 'reader' spoke in such an incomprehensible way, to the point that I could not understand 90% of what it was saying. I have to think that the technology to provide something better is out there. The 'reader' didn't follow the cadence of normal speech. It didn't know how to pronounce most of the words. I'd be one happy customer if the reader could be…
