  1. Competitor Free Readers can Read this file, but Adobe Acrobat Pro Cannot!

    I received this document via email, and it previews fine in my Outlook Client, I downloaded and opened the file to sign, and Acrobat Pro would not display the file correctly. I was under pressure to sign the document, and I ended up downloading Foxit Reader and it read and allowed me to sign the document for free. Later I viewed the same document on my Android device in Acrobat, and the same error was reproduced. I contacted support and they were unable to resolve the issue. I'm would like to elevate this for a resolution. I pay money to…

  3. "Save As PDF" menu UX improvement suggestion

    The "save as" dialog menu in Acrobat Pro (Windows edition) looks counterintuitive, especially the location of "Choose a different folder" button. I've never seen such a menu structure ever. Normally Windows Explorer has a similar thing on the top of the menu. It's a good idea to have a list of recent folders on a screen, but actually I need easy access to other folders on my computer. And it would be great to make this menu looks similar to Windows Explorer. At least I'd place the folder path somewhere at the top of the window (as seen on the…

  4. Bookmarks missing in Acrobat DC but not Reader

    I made a PDF with InDesign 15.0 and the bookmarks are missing in full Acrobat DC 2019.021.20056. However, the bookmarks do display ok in my wife's computer's copy of Acrobat Reader.

  5. Stop evil right-bottom clickable rectangle area.

  6. Number each submitted request/bug report so one can specifically reference them

    Back to the usability idea ... One should be able to have a UNIQUE reference number for each and every post. If users/moderators take the time to review posts, then they should be able to reference them BY NUMBER in their own personal notes and to others.

    Right now I cannot possibly suggest that you refer to comment xxxx from date xxxx under topic xxxx .....

    How about a simple SQL database to track things ??? These pop-up subcategories by keyword search are helpful, but they are not nearly complete !

    PS Number = xxxxxxxx + Section + 2 keywords…

  7. Bring back the File Export User Interface = *.aaui

    The Acrobat XI version before Acrobat XI Pro 2017 let the user export the current settings to a standard *.aaui file. That way, one could alter between preferences or GO BACK if a change was not working as needed/expected. It also allowed for exchange of settings between users if User B preferred concept used by User A ....

    For the life of me I cannot understand why I found this previous request to be 'DECLINED' :

    Declined by digvijay singh bisht (Software Engineer, Adobe) responded

    Save Quick Tools settings
    There also needs to be a way to save customize Quick…

  8. Make this report section usable by allowing SEARCH and offering heading summary

    Duh is this Nov 2019? Why can't I search both titles only and entire text for all requests? Does Adobe seriously want/expect users and moderators to scan FORTY-FIVE (45) pages of a forum to weed out duplicate requests ?? .... I certianly do NOT want to put in a NEW request for something that's already in the count. WORSE YET, if the same concept is entered 4 times as 5 + 3 + 2 + 10 votes, then Adobe will surely not value that as 20 VOTES and will probably NOT fix it !!! Another dis-service to the users, especially…

  10. BUG - Compression Issue

    PDF Compressing/Optimizing Issues:

    I have a PDF document designed in Photoshop and when Compressing using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC there are 3 issues that happen:


    1. The text becomes illegible in only certain parts of the document


    2. The images become warped and extremely fuzzy


    3. The Compression/Optimization tool is not compressing the PDF enough, we would like the document to go from 80MB to 80KB as an example.


    Attached is what the PDF looks like before compressing, and an example of what it looks like after compressing. I have spoken with several reps and no one is able to assist me.

    Please…

  13. Distiller has no PDF X4 standard

    Hi there,
    I'm using Distiller 19.21 ...
    To generate a PDF I always print to postscript from Indesign and afterwards the Distiller generates the PDF-file. When there is in error (somewhere in a bad EPS [binary EPS for example], foreign PDF or in a Picture) the Distiller stops the PDF creating, I can search and remove the cause for the error and finally i get a technically perfect PDF for any printing house.

    That ist not possible for the PDF-X4-standard ... that is not good at all. To give away a clean PDF-file it is a MUST in my opinion…

  14. Have formatting options when converting a PDF to a Word file

    When I convert a complex-looking PDF to a word document, there are too many formatting elements. For example, there are multiple sections (which means multiple headers and footer) unnecessary columns, dotted lines converted into dots in a tiny text, margins that default to the very edge of the page. Numbered lists turn into automatically numbered lists even though I have automatically numbered lists turned off on Word.

    I need to be able to have the option to stop Acrobat using formatting features when turning documents into PDF's. I need to be able to stop unnecessary columns, set sensible margins, turn…

  15. Adobe 10 runs extremely slow at times; I get a "not responding" error message numerous times. Takes forever to open a document.

    Adobe runs extremely slow at times; I get a "not responding" error message numerous times each day. Files take a very long time to load or they just don't open. Adobe crashes (closes) several times each day.

  16. OCRLibrarylnf.dll

    This is a bug report. Typically Enhancing a scan triggers an error message (which is attached). This error message at the very beginning of the enhanced scan. The path shown in the error message does exist. I've reinstalled several times.

  18. Acrobat DC is slow

    Acrobat DC is very slow to view the files. Checking the separations and toggling 2 documents. It would be great, if you work on this. Slowness is very much frustrating.

  20. Crashing

    Crashes frequently, particularly sensitive when more than 7 files open. Frequency of crashing increases to the point where it is unusable.

    Need to quickly resolve compatibility issues with Catalina, perhaps error reporting from the software would help.
