  1. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC ver 18.011.20058 continually freezes while highlighting. Any changes made are lost if not saved before freezing.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC ver 18.011.20058 continually freezes while highlighting. Any changes made are lost if not saved before freezing. Happens across multiple machines. Only way to restart editing is to use task manager and kill the process then reopen losing the changes made.

  2. Multiple error messages

    I'm getting errors when reading PDFs. All different sizes, all different sources.

    "There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this document (109)."

    "A number is out of range."

    "There was an error while reading a stream."

    "Please wait while the document is being prepared for reading."

    "Out of memory."

    It's a brand new Windows 10 machine with 8GB of RAM. I uninstalled and reinstalled the program. How do I fix this issue? The program is essentially unusable at this point.

  3. Better support of Wacom for commenting

    I add a line/arrow/whatsoever with a Wacom Pen. If I want to add text close by, I often get caught by the handles of the previously, nearby added object. Actually it works much better to use MS Ink for handwritten comments. But then it is not within the PDF and I have to files. So please, give some thought on how to use pencils like Wacom more smoothly. BR, Michael

  4. Nicht genügend Daten für ein Bild

    Problem tritt in der aktuellen Version der Acrobat DC auf. Mit z. B. Acrobat 9 geht es. Ist wohl ein JPEG200-Bild enthalten.

  5. Acrobat Pro DC hangs (Not Responding) at first run.

    Win 10 x64 1709
    Classroom/lab environment.
    New-to-machine user, in other words, newly created user profile, extremely common in a classroom/lab environment.
    Licensed via ETLA AdobeSerialization.exe
    Installation package modified using Acrobat Customization Wizard DC

    If a user runs Acrobat straight-away, Acrobat.exe hangs and shows a "not responding" status before the Acrobat UI is displayed.

    After killing the Acrobat.exe process, subsequent launches work.

    If a new-to-the-machine user launches then closes Google Chrome AND Microsoft Edge BEFORE running Acrobat then runs Acrobat, Acrobat launches without issue.

    Disabling Protected View via policy has no effect.

    No errors are displayed.

    There are no discernable errors…

  8. Select object tool in Acrobat Standard

    The "Select object" tool is only available in the Pro version under "Rich Media". The tool is very useful for selecting text boxes and shapes. There is no alternative to the tool in the Standard version of Acrobat. Please make it or something similar available in the Standard version.

  11. Reader Export to Flat PDF and JPG

    Hi,

    I use Acrobat fillable forms and really need my clients, that use just the Reader version, to be able to export to Flat PDF and JPG after they are done with the editions.

    Would that be something to consider make it available to Adobe Acrobat Reader?

    Thank you very much for you consideration.

  12. Annoying sign-in for Adobe ID, request to ignore that permanently

    Every time I open Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe - annoyingly - wants me to sign in with my Adobe ID. I want to skip this pop-up permanently.

  13. Adobe PDF on Chrome and highlighting problem in Acrobat Pro DC

    When printing from Chrome on Windows with Adobe PDF and then trying to highlight it in Acrobat Pro there is some strange problems. IT marks much more than it should. Se added examples.
    AdobePDFchrome.pdf is printed with Adobe PDF and the Builtinchrome.pdf is printed with the built-in PDF in chrome.
    In both files I have highlighted only the text DC but only the Built-In for chrome shows it correctly?

    Data: Chrome Version 68.0.3440.106 (Officiell version) (64 bit)
    Acrobat Pro DC 2018-011-20058

    Need Info  ·  diwjoshi responded

    Hi Marko,

    Thank you for sharing this issue with us. We would like to know few more things :

    1. Is this issue happening every time you highlight a document printed by Adobe PDF?
    2. Is it working fine if we highlight any local PDF file?
    2. Have you tried updating Acrobat Pro and Chrome to the latest version?
    3. Please share the sample pdf files.

    We have tried but unable to reproduce it with the latest Chrome(71.0.3578.98) and Acrobat Pro (2019.010.20064).

    Thanks,
    Swapnil Srivastava

  14. Security - Add Ability to Prevent Attaching as Email

    We have proprietary software that serves up PDF files stored in a location that end-users do not have access to. These documents can contain PHI and PII. We want to prevent the ability for users to send copies the document outside of our system. We have been able to lock down every aspect except for attaching to an email. There is a toolbar and menu option for this feature.

    For security reasons I would like the ability to disable the attach as email feature the same way that I can disable WebMail.

  15. shared review deadline and tracker functions

    I would like to be able to have a default setting for the review date. I want to have no deadline for 95% of all my cases. But every single time I need to manually set it to no deadline.

    Also I have noticed that I get error message when trying to open the adobe tracker icon if acrobat is not on. So I need to click ok on both before I can open the tracker inside acrobat. But if Acrobat is up an running it works.
    I have reinstalled Acrobat but the error comes back after a while.

  17. "Staple" or "group" pages within a PDF.

    "Staple" or group pages to keep specific pages in a multipage PDF together. User is warned if trying to edit the stapled pages but can override if required. Selecting one page in a stapled group would select all pages of the group for moving, extracting, deleting, etc., with warnings. Access to act on specific group page page could be enabled with alt, multiple pages in the sub group with alt-shift or ctrl-shift. Prompted by: similar subdocuments were combined into a larger PDF, but the naming of the subdocuments may make it unclear where new additions should be placed.

    Hello,

    I think you are searching for the AddText functionality.
    You can find it at :
    Open EditApp → You will find AddText option in top toolbar.

    Please let us know if it serves your purpose.

  20. Add remaining characters counter to text form with character limit

    Add a function to Adobe Acrobat Pro Create Forms, so that when a character limit is applied to a text box a counter appears to indicate the remaining number of characters available to the user.
