  1. Convert to Adobe PDF Context Menu

    When right clicking on a file from a windows explorer window, a contextual option appears to 'Cover to Adobe PDF'.
    Currently it prompts the user to select a directory - usually the previous directory it was exported to, however this is never helpful as locations change often.

    It would be good if you could set this process to default the output directory to be where the file currently resides.

  3. Conversion of PDF to Excel in an erroneous sequence

    The included images are screen shots of 2 PDFs we are working with.
    Both are in the same format with different data & overall structure remains the same.
    “Aa” doc was converted as in the same format & structure of the PDF itself,
    but “B” doc was converted with incorrect sequence of data lines.
    To be precise ,in “B” doc the row after “issue date”, With “Buyer: xxxxxxx Vendor:tttttt Manufac Agent:
    Came below the Line:02 row box, after the conversion of doc from pdf to excel.

    “Aa-Converted” and “B-convereted” are the converted excel files of Aa & B correspondingly. …

  4. When converting to a Word document, make the boxes tables, not pictures of a box

    When converting a PDF, please convert boxes to tables (with one cell), not to pictures of a box. Boxes are usually in forms for people to write in. You can't write in a picture of a box in a Word document! If the box was just supposed to be a picture of a box, it will still be a picture of a box if it is formatted as a table. Please default things to making documents have editable content. And keep doing better than Word converting PDF's!

  6. Conversion to Word Documents Could Easily Be A Lot Better

    When converting PDF's to Word files, please do the following.
    1. Have the margin of the page at least 2 cm in from the edge. At the moment, it often puts the left margin 0.5 cm from the edge of the page. This is never how real document are.
    2. Have the minimum font size 8 pt. At the moment, it converts rows of full stops (that people are supposed to write on) to 3.5 pt full stops. Real documents never have 3.5 pt text.
    3. Have tick boxes converted to tick boxes in a standard font like Arial. At…

  9. Please include a selection tool for PDFs that allow you to export a specific table to excel/word/ppt/ete

    Please include a selection tool for PDFs that allow you to export a specific table to excel/word/ppt/etc instead of having to split a specific PDF page and then exporting the whole page. It's a huge limitation and it appears the functionality is already built in to export a specific selection.

  12. Exporting to Microsoft Word Needs A LOT of help

    Exporting to Word is USELESS as is. Here's a screenshot of the conversion. Added a page; reflow of text; fonts and styling are a wild guess at best; logo/branding unusable.

    Why even have this feature if this is the result? USELESS a hundred times over.

  13. BUG: Acrobat looses numbers at Export as HTML, DOC, DOCX

    When exporting a PDF to an HTML, DOC or DOCX, ACROBAT DC and also ACROBAT 11 PRO, looses/converts the numbers at the beginning of the row which contains . and 000 (00).
    For example, in word, the number 15.000 becomes a numbered list starting with "15.1" and in HTML becomes the same or disappears completely. This is a very frequent problem, in 100 pdf's 85 of them have this problem on multiple pages.
    Considering that we work with ACROBAT PRO and DC with almost 10000 of pdf's monthly (from 2006) for us is a very serious problem that we have…

  14. Original file name in PDF metadata

    What I’m looking for is a way to imbed the originating file name somewhere in the Meta data of the pdf for future reference. It would have nothing to do with the file name used for the PDF when exporting the original file. Use case: Often a client will rename a pdf and down the road I have to find the original Indesign file used to create that pdf.

  19. PDF to Word Conversion

    The pdf to word conversion is not much superior compared to other sites such as ilovepdf.com. There are various spelling errors in conversion from pdf to doc (Mac User). Please improve this aspect. The OCR is also poor (take a cue from apps such as pen to print).

  20. Export to excel typically does not work

    The step in the export process in which the tool presents the options related to locations for saving the exported file has a blank screen that never completes the process.
