  1. compare pdf

    For ComparePDF, I hope there will be a way to make this side by side view switch to vertical. So I could be looking at comparisons this way (combined two screenshots below):

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/124625i649C9FB593B67D14/image-size/large?v=1.0&px=999

    I'm looking at financials with small font, so each line of text is fairly long.

    In Side-By-Side view, zooming out makes the text too small; zooming in makes half of each line out of view.

  2. Add support for the Data URL scheme

    Currently, embedded links which use the Data URL schema are blocked by Adobe Acrobat even when adjusting security settings. Adobe Acrobat doesn't need to support reading these links as they're simply opened in a browser, but we need Acrobat to stop blocking these links. I've attached an example PDF with an embedded data url.

  3. Add proper LongPath support

    Adobe fails to open files when a file path & name exceed MAX_PATH. Windows no longer has a hard path character limit if the LongPathsEnabled key is set in the registry. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/fileio/naming-a-file#maximum-path-length-limitation

    Modern applications are adopting this new standard with the mentioned file management hooks provided by the OS.

    Adobe is falling behind in this regard. Please add proper Long Path support.

  4. Bug, Error running Action Wizard against multiple files.

    Hi,

    I have an Action Wizard doing the following:
    1. OCR
    2. Optimize
    3. Save the file
    When I run this same Action on two separate Machine against a folder with a lot of PDF files in it, after running for a while, say doing 100 - 300 files, if fails. The DC Student version gives out of memory dialog box error and stops and the Pro DC version gives a dialog box saying "There was an error opening the document...." I will attach the screen shut of the error I get.

  5. Provide options to Sort files in a OneDrive folder when opening

    This is for Acrobat Pro DC.
    We have the option to open 'Files' from OneDrive.
    When I navigate to a folder in my OneDrive the files are displayed in what appears to be Name order. I would like a way to Sort those files into other orders. For Example, Date Descending/Ascending.

  9. Bug Report: Save As A PDF has not been working for at least two months for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I hope it is fixed soon. Thanks

    When I download a pdf and use the SAVE or SAVE AS to .pdf, the save window disappears in seconds and I can't save the document.

  10. Adobe Send & Track Outlook 2016 Mac Plug-in

    I love the Adobe Send & Track plug-in for Outlook 2016 on the PC. I was just informed by someone from Adobe that this feature is not available on Macs. Could you please look into developing this feature for Macs at some point? Thank you.

  11. DISABLE DOWNLOAD

    For the european GPDR rules it would be greate when sending a file with Send and track to disable the download option. So receivers can only view the file from the Adobe cloud but they cannot download it.

  12. Acrobat DC is disabling the lights when vertex colors are used in the U3D input file, is there any way to overcome this?

    I have created a U3D file with a mesh and vertex colors. I have created a PDF file using the Latex tool.
    When opening the PDF file in Acrobat DC, I see that the lightning is disabled. This does not happen when the U3D file uses material colors instead of vertex colors.

  14. Activate <ESC> escape button to close Search dialog, like many other Windows programs.

    Having to manually mouse click the 'OK' button on the 'Acrobat has finished searching the document' dialog is cumbersome. Ditto for other Acrobat dialogs. Please activate the <ESC> key here to close the dialogs. It makes navigation much faster.

  15. Acrobat Reader/Pro do not properly support word-by-word selection in macOS


    1. Open a PDF containing text in Acrobat Reader or Acrobat (18) in macOS (10.12.6) on the Mac (also applies to other versions).

    2. In order to select a string of words, double-click on the first word and, without releasing the mouse button, drag in the required direction to extend the selection.

    Expected Result: Acrobat should select the word you double-clicked on, and THEN extend the selection word by word based on the direction of the dragging.

    Observed Result: Acrobat selects the word you double-clicked on, and then fails to extend the selection.

    The only way to select a string of words…

  17. Bug Report - Using Tools (esp Redact tool) causes wheel of death. HELP

    Hi I'm having continual issues with using the Redact and Combine tools. Whenever I use these tools and attempt to save the document, I get the wheel of death and have to force close Adobe. When I go to where I saved the document, I get an error message saying "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."
