  1. Protect text only

    I would like to protect our company reports from being edited (mainly text), however, I would like my clients to be able to combine our report into their appendices.

  2. I opened the document with Acrobat Pro DC. I wanted to export this doc, but it would not

    I couldn't export a document I had just opened in Acrobat Pro DC. But it wouldn't do anything, not even a dialog to let me know what the next step or requirement would be.

  3. Resize Button Properties window

    It would be helpful to be able to resize the Button Properties window in Adobe Acrobat Pro. Currently the window barely has enough room to display the contents. Resizing would help allow for much quicker form preparation workflows, for example, making the window larger could help minimize the need to constantly use the scrollbars in the Actions tab.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    Kindly share with us your machine details and Acrobat version.
    Also please provide us some sample files and a screenshot of the exact error

  7. unable to print any pdfs to printers

    I'm unable to print any pdf files from Acrobat DC to the local network printers. I receive errors: "the document could not be printed" and "an error occurred while printing the document". I am able to print to the printers from other programs. I've been able to print pdfs from Acrobat DC to printers in the past.

  8. Find skips terms on last pages.

    Adobe will skip the last few pages when searching for terms the first time. I have to go back and forth for it to be "found".

  9. Security Upgrade Required to prevent Editing of secured PDF

    I use the Adobe Acrobat DC to secure it with password so I can prevent the document from being copied or edited. However, when I upload it to Google Drive, it can turn into an EDITABLE document on One single Click. What is the use of this type of encryption?

    Is there a way that I am missing out on that can help achieve secure the document from being copied or edited with such ease because I haven't found any.

    Thanks

  10. Difficulty moving text

    Please make it easier to move text. I have spent hours (and am developing RSI) trying to move text that I have moved before - it takes dozens/hundreds of clicks to get the box around the text to show sufficiently to grab it and move it. I spent the $$ for AA Pro DC, so thought such a basic thing would have been fixed .... Please let me know when it is fixed so that I can edit my document without wasting any more time - I have a week or so before it goes to the printers ... Thanks

  11. Carousel option for Portfolio.

    A few versions ago, Acrobat/Portfolio had options on how to present your portfolio, Carousel was one option I used when combining all our company literature for our salesmen. The New Acrobat DC (Professional) doesn't have that and wish it did. It gave the portfolio a nice professional look to it, a feature I would expect from Adobe.

  12. Constant crashes with Creative Suite 2018

    After years of using Creative Suite with no problems whatsoever I recently installed Creative Cloud on my Mac High Sierra 10.13.5. From day one I have endured constant crashes with Indesign and I can forget trying to use Acrobat as it just crashes constantly. I deeply resent paying for this package when it is unusable. Very unhappy!

  13. Cannot set select tool as default instead of hand tool

    I'm trying to make the select tool the default when Acrobat opens instead of the hand tool.

    I was running Acrobat DC fine with the select tool as the default on Windows 7. I just got a new computer with Windows 10 and now I'm having trouble. Same version of Acrobat, just a new operating system.

    I've tried almost everything mentioned in this thread: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2179758

    The one thing I couldn't try was the scrubbing tool, because I have Creative Cloud. I did uninstall and reinstall Acrobat. It didn't work. Then I tried the "Repair Installation" option in the Acrobat help…

  15. Two emails send on final approvement.

    The Japanese version of Acrobat pro has "承認用に電子メールで送信" function in "Send For Comments".

    In that function, email is sent by each steps of approvement.
    but at the final approvement, the following two mails are sent.
    1. The xxxx.pdf is completed to approve and sent to @.cp.jp
    2. The xxxx.pdf is finally approved.

    I think the 1st email is not neccesary on the final approvement.

    So please change not to send the confirmation email on final approvement.

  16. CC can't import email address from address book

    The Japanese version of Acrobat pro has "承認用に電子メールで送信" function in "Send For Comments".

    In that function, I can choose email address by clicking CC button.
    But the chosen email address is not imported.
    The CC box is still empty.
    I have to write the email in the CC field.

    Please fix it.

  17. Page-numbering & viewing are way too small for pages containing photos

    When I convert a photo to a PDF, insert that into a PDF document and then add page numbering, the following problems arise:

    1) on the photo-pages, the page-numbering is reduced in size to be barely visible, and

    2) when paging thru the document, non-photo-pages appear minuscule compared to photo-pages.

  19. Does Adobe Acrobat Reader DC work on Android and Ipad tablels

    Does Adobe Acrobat Reader DC work on Android and I pad tablets? If so, how is it acquired as I have a subscription for a desktop for Reader DC and Acrobat Pro DC. Also would be convenient to talk to a human in your company as your current customer service is dismisal

  20. Please show portfolio select box at a glance, not under options

    In previous versions, when combining files in Adobe Acrobat, it was easy to tell immediately whether the portfolio option was ticked.

    Now, it is hidden under the 'Options' gear icon. Acrobat remembers the last setting so it is impossible to say what it might be at any given time without clicking the gear icon to check.

    This slows down workflow and is needless when there is plenty of room on the toolbar to show this information and is a step backwards from previous versions where this option was immediately visible.

    Please re-instate the old behaviour.
