  1. "Don't forget your scan" is displayed in the Adobe Scan app for Android after successfully scanning something.

    "Don't forget your scan" is displayed in the Adobe Scan app for Android each* time I use the app to successfully scan. *This issue is repeatable. The scans are viewable on a PC, so this is why I say say they scans are successful even though the message is displayed each time I use the Android app.

  2. Receiving error: Acrobat could not perform Text Recognition on this page because: unknown error - I do not want OCR or Text Recognition!

    The application somehow started running OCR automatically - I'm unable to stop it or figure out how to turn it off. It slows down converting any document to PDF.

    How do I stop Text Recognition from running?
    I looked this up, but don't see the option to turn off.

  3. I simply wanted to attach a PDF to an email...NOW SIMPLY A HASSLE!

    Typically, repeatedly, I simply want to attach a reduced-size pdf to an email. All it took was a simple pull-down menu to do the reduced size and text recognition.
    My time is valuable to me. Now creating/iusing a pdf...WHEW!
    If I'm having difficulty figuring out all the new PDF gingerbread and where basic tools are hidden...what about those who are not computer inclined?
    Please! New features are great in themselves. Don't reshuffle the pdf layout like cards and make those committed/using PDF's flounder!

  5. 'Insufficient data for an image' keeps appearing on PDF files on Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and Adobe Acrobat XI Pro

    Over the last few months when we try to open PDF files on either programs, 'insufficient data for an image' error appears and the PDF file turns blank. We are scanning from a printer called Sharp MX-3640. It is happening to different PDF files.

  6. this software doesn't work anymore how did you manage to mess up acrobat?

    why is acrobat so slow? Is my Adobe account scanning every word of every page I'm trying to open? these are just pdfs, why are they crashing my system? and YES it's the newest version and YES my system should be more than able to handle it. The problem is this company has gone from creating (or buying) good software to just making malware to bug up their products and shake as much cash as possible from the users

  7. Bug report. crash on select B&W

    Create | PDF from Scanner (Canoscan 9000) | in 'or use predefined scan setting' select 'Black and white document'.

    When that setting is selected, Acrobat crashes immediately, without message, every time.

    only applies to predetermined setting as modifying default to B&W from the gear does not cause crash

    version is 2018.011.20038 / OS: Win 10 Home 64 bit

  8. Acrobat Pro 2017 crashes after scanning EVERY TIME

    Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 crashes every time I try to scan a document, if I don't leave the default settings in place. I cannot use the default settings, I need it to scan and OCR DOUBLE-SIDED documents. This has stopped our work process completely.

    PLEASE don't tell me to upload the crash report to your cloud, I do not have "toll access" whatever that is to do that. We are using stand-alone copies of Pro, not utilizing the cloud (we work with confidential materials so cannot do this by federal law).

    I am so behind on my work and have…

  11. Create PDF from scanner menu item doesn't work in OS X

    When attempting to scan a document to a new PDF the menu item for File --> Create --> PDF from Scanner does nothing after scanning and closing out of a previously opened PDF. You have to close Adobe Pro DC totally and re-open it in order to scan.

  14. OCR Messing up highlight and free form tool.

    Behavior is on Windows 7 | Acrobat Pro XI version 11.0.23

    When running OCR (English and Italian) previous drawing markups (Free Form Tool) and highlights are corrupted. Free forms were rotated 90 degrees and translated, while highlights were moved up about 2.5 lines. I attached a word document with screenshots of the behavior. This behavior messed up highlighting work by a professor at Indiana University.

  15. I have continuously had a problem with Adobe Acrobat crashing after I have added scanned files. I paid to update to newer version not help.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro crashes often when scanning. This is an inherent problem with Adobe that they need to fix as I upgraded to newer version to avoid this and the problem is just as prevalent.

    Thanks for reporting your concern. As of now there is no plan to add support for this language.
    We will get back to you when the support is added.

  17. OCR Fails & Cursor for Select is about five inches (5") -- about 8 legal lines in height. Can't select one line or even multiple lines.

    Even after using "Recognize Text" and "Correct Recognized Text" Adobe DC does not recognize the text. Worse, the Select tool or highlighter is about 5 inches -- impossible to select any one line or word.

  18. Can not scan and create a new PDF, have to scan to combine PDF. Give me back Acrobat XI any day!

    When I try to scan & create a new PDF file, the program crashes after scanning 9 times out of 10. The only reliable way to scan and create a PDF is to combine it with a blank PDF file.
    I'll take Acrobat XI over this time consuming software any day. Unless Adobe is willing to repay me for time lost!

  19. Everytime I scann something in HiRES , it crashes.

    Every time I scan something (usually in HiRes), Adobe crashes. I have had 3 support cases in the past where they reset a bunch of stuff and do a new installation. That only works for a few scans, then the issue comes back.
