  1. Fillable PDF does now show completed or signed fields

    If a fillable PDF is created from a Word document (perhaps even if created natively in Acrobat Pro), and it is filled in or signed by a 3rd party tool (e.g. Preview in macOS, iOS, iPadOS), the PDF is no longer rendered correctly in Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat Standard, or Adobe Acrobat Pro. HOWEVER it is faithfully rendered in Acrobat for iOS or Acrobat for iPadOS, or in a web browser (e.g. Chrome) or a built-in viewer like OneDrive. To fix Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat, you have to turn off the "Show border hover color for fields" but this…

  2. Please add a change default font, size, colour feature.

    Can you please add the ability to let the user set a different 'default' font type, size, colour when creating forms? It adds significantly to the time used creating forms to have to change the font for every single text/field added.

  3. Auro save? Is it that hard?

    Is it really that hard to auto save PDFs? It's ridiculous that in 2020 my PDFs don't save to original documents as I work. Thanks for wasting my time and losing hours of work.

  5. BUG: Fillable Date Format (Auto-Conversion BROKEN)

    When a valid date is entered using a format different from the format specified by the form date field, Acrobat automatically converts this to the specified format on-screen. However the saved data remains in the originally-entered (incorrect) format.

    Example: Field Name: "DateOfBirth" Format: mm/dd/yyyy

    Entered: "12 Aug 2002" Form displays: "08/12/2002" following entry

    It APPEARS the date was converted to the specified format.

    Export Data saves this as: ... <</T(DateOfBirth)/V(12 Aug 2002)>> ...

    This indicates the original entry was saved, not the converted date.

    This SHOULD be saved as: ... <</T(DateOfBirth)/V(03/12/2002)>> ...

    When returning to the DateOfBirth field the display…

  6. Create a tool to create expandable and retractable sections within a Form

    Adobe Pro needs to have a feature to create expandable drop down lists. I have seen it in other products, but it fits well with the PDF Pro.

    I would like to be able to create easy drop down check lists, divided by topic, so the user can expand the form in the areas they need. This will reduce time for the customer to have to scroll through the document to find what they are looking for and will increase the functionality of the document.

    I would like it to contain a plus box and minus box, so people can…

  7. please add an expandable click zone to check boxes / radio buttons

    Dear Adobe Acrobat developers,

    I constantly use check boxes and radio buttons in my forms. I put them right over the desired box (mostly designed in ID) which also have labels (also designed in ID) right next to them. In order to make the label a clickable zone just like the check boxes it would be oh so cool to expand the box right or left aligned until it fully covers the label underneath. Maybe the attached PDF can explain that better. Thanks for your feedback, Ralf

  8. Portfolio

    I do not feel I have a unique situation, and thus worthy of a resolution. When creating multi page forms, I start with a template, and alter the information to each unique situation (like a date..) When merging these into a portfolio, the file is no longer EASILY linkable on a web site, nor sent via cloud link. If I create a binder, the "shared" fields" auto fill from one form to the next. This is not desired, as the individual information changes from form to form. Yes, I know I can change the field names on each form and…

  11. Date field

    Hi,

    Could you add a number of week (w) in the list of ACCEPTED VALUES FOR PORTIONS OF DATES in Acrobat Pro DC?
    Examples:
    - ww-yyyy (38-2020)
    - ww-yy (38-20)
    - ect.
    It will be helpful for PDF files which contain date field in this format and it needs to be editable (manually by an operator and automatically generated in Acrobat Pro DC) each time when PDF files are opened for a print or any other job.
    It is not possible to get this format of a date even with option Custom in Prepare Form/Format/Date/Custom.

    Thank you in advance and…

  13. Why did Adobe cancel Livecycle designer?

    For many years i was developing Livecycle Forms for SMB . Why did Adobe cancel the product?
    Has anyone ever thought about how big the market is for i.e. handymens etc. to use dynamic formulars in their business? But they cannot afford an AEM license with server components etc.! It seems to be a very short termed look. Everyone is talking about digitalization. But noone seemed to have done an analysis of market segments and opportunities. The world consists of more than banks and world market players. Thx for any feedback.

  14. Duplicate form page without linking fields

    For people using Adobe Acrobat PDF forms for schedules, breakdowns or quick lists, having a form's fields link when pages are duplicated poses a huge issue for usability. Having an option within the program to unlink form fields across pages would be a great help for these uses.

    For example:
    I have a single page form with 20+ fields to help organize shot lists for film scenes. It contains check boxes, drop down menus and input image fields related to a specific shot in a specific scene. I want to be able to duplicate this page within the document and…

  15. Bug: Leading space in auto-generated form field name blocks script manipulation

    In "Prepare Form" form fields are sometimes auto-generated with names that contain leading space e.g. " _2b". These fields looks innocent in user interaction. But when one want to manipulate them in javascript, they are listed out in getNthFieldName() yet invisible in getField(), thus blocking the automation.

    Solution 1: allow leading/trailing space in getField()
    Solution 2: trim field names in form field auto-generation

    Implement both would be best.

  18. Globally change default text field properties in Acrobat Pro DC

    I work in InDesign. I create the form and place the various fields. When I export to interactive PDF, the default text field properties include "Check spelling" = yes. I have to edit all the text fields to change "Check spelling" = no. Please allow default text field properties to be changed GLOBALLY and PERMANENTLY.

  20. BUG: Combined PDF appears to be missing characters but displays properly in chrome

    Identical to this problem: https://acrobat.uservoice.com/forums/590923-acrobat-for-windows-and-mac/suggestions/19583785-combining-pdf-documents-results-in-unprintable-cha

    After combining multiple documents, instead of characters showing up as expected when viewing in Acrobat, they show as boxes. When previewing in Edge, Chrome, Nitro, they appear as expected. It has been shown to be version agnostic as well as OS agnostic replicating the issue on Windows and Mac as well as different versions of Acrobat including the most recent patched version.
