  1. 2D Measurement Tool - change the units

    When using the 2D Measurement Tool, I need to change the units from decimals (feet) to feet/inches. (Eg. 6.50ft vs. 6'6")

    BE able to save multiple subsections and bookmarked Sections as a PDF rather than the whole document when PRINT action does not allow subsections to be saved through printer dialogue. Going to save as just saves the whole document again. NOT the selected Subsection or multiple pages.

    Under review  ·  pooja . responded

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback.
    We have recorded it as a feature request in our database.
    However saving multiple pages to PDF option is there. You can give selected pages in ‘Pages’ option on print dialog.

    Best Regards!

  3. Bug: Errors when trying to "scan-optimize" a signed PDF

    I have a signed/certified PDF. Manipulations on this document are per se forbidden. However, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC allows to run the scan-optimizer (OCR, rectification, etc.) which causes a row of error messages: For every PDF-page, it shows two pop ups.

  4. livecycle crashes on preview

    Adobe Livecycle ES 4 crashes repeatingly after opening the preview screen. It's irritating. I see a lot of ad hoc repair items in this blog by the Adobe Support team (outsourced). There are a lot of issues in this case. When will Adobe really do something about it.

    Please let's have a call. In the early days Adobe issues will be solved. Since it's outsources the issues are increasing huge in my opinion.

    Regards,

  5. Acrobat crashes after upgrade to 18.11.20040.19174

    After an upgrade to latest version 18.11.20040.19174 of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC was installed yesterday on my machine (Windows 10 Pro, version 1709) - Acrobat crashes 90% of times when trying to open any PDF file (sometimes it opens given file correctly and after closing the application and trying to open it again - it silently crashes). There is one third-party add-in installed that I'm using which worked fine so far, but now Acrobat crashes.

    I can provide you with a crash mini-dump if you want (68MB as ZIP)

  6. GCInvoker Multiple Instances

    On a Windows server where multiple end user remote to the device and use the Adobe Pro software installed, AdobeGCInvoker automatically becomes a scheduled task for each individual user and runs once every 24 hrs. If 300 users connect to the server and use the application, 300 instances of GCInvoker will become scheduled task. This is highly inefficient and undesirable. The GCInvoker should be reconfigured to only run once per day under the local administrator account on the server, thereby removing the additional clutter from the list of scheduled task on the server. Adobe case # 0189523068

  7. Bug with internal links when converting PDF from Word

    This is a bug. When using the acrobat extension in macOS microsoft Word to convert the doc to a PDF it removes internal links. It works fine for external links such as websites, but if I put a link in place that quickly takes you to another place in the document when clicked, this is removed when converting to a PDF. The text still appears blue but the link is not existent.

  8. Bug - Acrobat no longer opening files with macOS High Sierra / Security Update

    Recently I updated to Security Update 2018-001 on macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 - since then, none of my Acrobat instances (DC Pro, X) works anymore: I can start Acrobat, but as soon a I try to open a file, Acrobat hangs (showing the "rolling ball") and I have to force quit. Deinstallation and re-installation did not solve the problem.

    some of my audience will access the content from mobile devices. I need to know what their experience will be. Otherwise I will need a different solution for the publishing content

  10. BUG - can't edit fields in a form

    I open a pdf and go to tools > prepare form> open then select a form.

    As soon as I click on 'add a field' or an existing field, a stopwatch icon appears and Adobe closes. So I can't edit a form which makes a fillable pdf form impossible. Given the fee I pay every month I am NOT happy.

    Yes I have the most current version, Yes I tried the 'repair Adobe' option.

  11. BUG REPORT: 18.011.20038 Customize Quick Tools resets after every boot!

    Customize Quick Tools resets after every boot on a brand new computer with a new install of Acrobat DC. Why is there NO WAY to export settings for quick import and/or copying to other machines?! This is 2018, not 1995.

  12. Resize the comments list

    I want to be able to resize the comment list to a smaller size than currently available. Right now, the minimum width is much too big for my small laptop. It takes up three inches of the width of my screen space. The total width of the screen is 11.5 inches, which leaves not much for the actual document, especially if I'm looking at two-page spreads.

    Even when I used a huge 25-inch wide screen I need as much space as possible to compare two documents side by side. The wide comment lists get in the way.

    (Both these screens…

  13. AdobeSign does not allow Times Roman font to be used

    I have multiple fonts used throughout a legal document, but when I convert to Adobe Sign, the fonts in the Forms are converted to Arial, when it was originally Times Roman. I contacted support, but they were unable to help with this!?! Can we get this updated so standard font types are compatible with Adobe Sign???

  15. Sign button should open instantly like every other button- even when it is working it is too slow.

    Signing documents should be fast. My continued experience is one of two things, Extremely slow to retrieve signatures or it just sits there animating the four squares of customers aren't important. Currently can't sign anything, have re-installed acrobate pro via creative cloud installer, signed out and signed in. Make this "feature" reliable please.

  18. DC version is a struggle to use and is giving me a record low in productivity

    I have the full version of Adobe Acrobat (DC) and it functions just like Adobe reader. I work with a lot of assembly drawings and I like using Acrobat for annotations, creating lines and notes - I treat it like a lighter version of Illustrator. Since I started using DC, it has been a struggle. I can't find the usual icons that I frequently use in XI and that DC works soooo slow despite that I have a $5k professional computer. Auto-Cad now responds faster than Adobe Acrobat DC. Please bring back Acrobat XI !!!

    I hope the Adobe folks…

  20. Index Build Failed

    I have set scheduled runnig a batch file whcih indexes over 200,000 PDF files every weekend. However index creating has become failed since the week before last and not be able to create .idx files also.

    The number of PDF files increases by about 100-200 during a each week, so that I suspect this problem is caused by excess of the max indexable number of PDF files.

    [Questions]
    1. Is there any threshold about the field of indexing?
    2. Is this issue caused by intrinsic bug of Acrobat Pro DC?

    [Environments]
    Windows Server 2012 R2 (64bit)
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC …
