  1. The ordinal 3282 could not be located in the dynamic link library with update 21.005.20048, June 08, 2021

    With the 21.005.20048 Planned update, June 08, 2021, it introduced a new issue that didn't previously exist with our TMW application from Trimble.

    Error = The ordinal 3282 could not be located in the dynamic link library
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.dll.

    This error did not exist with the May 11 update. This error was introduced this week with the Jun 8 update.

    I need to know how to roll-back or reinstall the 21.001.20155 Planned update, May 11, 2021 until this is fixed.

    Please contact Trimble for more information. They may be reaching out to you as well to understand…

  2. Bug - fullscreen error when opening second file

    When viewing a file in fullscreen mode, if a second file is opened it will display in normal mode, but with the menu cut off at the top. It's as though the app is still scaled up to make the main content the size of the screen. This prevents access to the menus and minimize/close buttons.

    By switching back to the first PDF and exiting fullscreen mode this can be mitigated, but the bug should be fixed in the app.

  4. 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.

  5. Highlight Text

    When you have to highlight text and you want to change color you need to go to: Secondary button, Properties, Select the color that is by default and then choose a new color.

    I suggest that when selecting the Highlight Text tool a side tab be enabled that allows us to change colors. Attached example of the suggestion

  7. 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.

  12. Modify all bookmarks at once

    When using the "Combine Files" tool, we should be able to modify all bookmarks at once, without changing the destination of the bookmarks. For example when navigating the pages using the bookmarks, the files will open in a "Fit Width" view, unless individually modified to use "Fit Page."

    I would like all documents to be viewed at "Fit Page" when using the bookmarks after combining the files, but I can only modify them individually, which is very tedious.

    The Set Default Bookmark Zoom Level menu item is now added to the PDF bookmark options. While creating a new bookmark, you can easily use this option to set the default zoom level. By default, the Inherit Zoom option is selected.

    Also, Acrobat now provides an option in the bookmark properties to retain the destination page number when you adjust the zoom level of multiple bookmarks.

    Please update your Acrobat (It should Auto update or you should do Help → Check for updates) and let us know your Feedback.

  14. Missing characters after conversion of Word document to PDF

  17. Sharing window/pop-up in swedish is confusing

    Swedish: When sharing a file from Acrobat and tries to leave you will be presented with a pop-up that gives you confusing alternatives.
    If you press "Ignorera" (Ignore) the sharing ends but if you press "Avbryt" (Cancel) the sharing continues. Highly confusing. "Avbryt" should be "Avbryt" (cancel this operation) and "Ignorera" should be "fortsätt ladda upp" (continue to upload).

  18. Page Extraction and Page Deletion Errors

    I use Adobe in construction to review the plans in pdf format. Many times when I need to extract the sheet that our scope of work falls under an error comes us saying please enter a valid page range. Instead of simply being able to extract the page I have to delete all the extra pages I don't need. This is time consuming and does not always work. There are times when having to take this route Adobe says some pages were not removed and I have to save, close Adobe, then open the doc again to be able to…

  20. Choose pen highlighting colors at the time of your choice

    In the next versions Acrobat could give the possibility to choose the color of the pen of highlighting of text, already in the choice of the tool. Maybe clicking and following would open a color palette so the user could choose the highlight color.
