  1. Searching for Highlighted Text

    It would be fabulous if one could search for text with highlighting applied in Adobe Standard. We had deposition transcripts in PDF format with highlighted designations (certain lines of text had highlighting applied) and were in need of counting the number of highlighted lines. The only solution was to manually count the lines. Having the ability to search for highlighted text would have been very useful. Thanks for reading. Happy Tuesday.

  2. Adobe Acrobat X Pro texts automatically highlighted with different colors (bug/error?)

    I've been using Adobe Acrobat X Pro in Windows 10 for 2 years now and this is the first time I have encountered this kind of bug/error.

    First problem was Acrobat crashed then I can't open it anymore so I re-installed the whole CS6 Design and Web Premium. Afterwards, that's where I saw the texts were highlighted in different colors. If I zoom in, the highlight disappear but when I zoom out, the highlight changes.

    Can someone help me?

  4. Don't automatically download updates through metered Internet connections

    Adobe products, like Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC, should NOT download updates when Internet access is established through a metered connection.

    When Adobe products download updates in the background through a metered connection, the data limit is reached in a snap and it's not possible to continue working for the rest of the month (depending on contract with the Internet provider) unless new, very expensive Internet allotment is bought.

  10. Errors syncing preferences

    I'm running Acrobat DC as part of Creative Cloud (CC) on several Macs. I use the sync feature to sync Acrobat preferences between all of these computers. I especially rely on the Acrobat preferences being sync'd for things like signatures and custom toolbars arrangement. I recently added two new computers, a MBP and an iMac Pro. When I installed CC and Acrobat DC on the MBP it worked fine. But on the iMac Pro Acrobat preferences sync is broken. The following steps illustrate the problem:

    1) Reboot the system to start from a clean state. Make sure no applications or…

  11. Adobe PDF Print needs a PDF/UA option

    We need to be able to save WCAG compliant, semantic HTML files (e.g. from Firefox) as PDF/UA, but Adobe PDF does not offer this option. Saving as PDF/A does not produce a tagged (UA) file.

    Adobe's pdf print gadget should use the browser accessibility tree, and tag the PDF accordingly.

    PDF/UA has been an ISO standard since 2012. WCAG 2.1 was finalized in 2019, and WCAG 2.x compliance is now mandatory for public sector procurements in North America, the EU and various other jurisdictions.

    What on earth is going on with your accessibility roadmap, Adobe? Apart from Acrobat on Windows,…

  14. The Pdf Reader show no number of pages in the folder

    In each folder of Windows 10 computer you can change, what the columns show. They show normally the date and size of the files. If the Pdf-Reader document is in a folder and i want to show how many pages my Pdf-Reader document have, it does not work.

  15. Relaod an opened pdf file

    The opened pdf files often crush after they are open for a while (which I suspect is due to the unstable server connection). So, I hope that Acrobat has this relaod function so that an opened file can be reloaded manually by a short-cut key like Ctrl+R.

  16. Avenir Next Font does not display correctly - only in Acrobat Pro

    When viewing a PDF that has the Avenir Next font type used in the body of text, the letters will not display properly when a bold or heavy style is applied to that font. Some letters are raised higher than they should be in comparison to other letters of the same upper or lower case status. See attached images. I've included the same exact font, string of text, and same exact file used, but one is displayed in adobe acrobat pro and the other is displayed on the web.

  17. Invoice notification or receival via email

    There is no option to receive the invoices via email nor to the option to receive a notification when the invoice has been raised on your account.

    Can this be implemented? I believe in this era at least one of the two should be granted.

  18. Copying pdf breaks formatting

    When copying anything from a pdf file to Microsoft Word or other text editors, the formatting is always messed up in many places, like double or missing spaces between words or missing line breaks.
    It would be much better if the formatting would be kept the same. This only happens when copying from a pdf, no other program/app does this on any other device.

  20. Allow clipboard Copy operation on PDF files protected for editing by password

    Currently, you cannot copy text from a PDF file that's been protected for editing by a password.

    To me this doesn't make sense. Copying text out of a PDF file isn't an operation that's altering the PDF file's content.

    I receive bank account statements as PDF files protected for editing (which is a legal necessity). ... In order to create my balance, though, I need to copy the valuta data from the PDF to, for instance, a Microsoft Excel worksheet. Currently this is not possible.

    So, I'd like to suggest to allow clipboard copy operations without first unlocking PDF files…
