  1. Batch encryption pop-up box for multiple files needs option: "do this for all files"

    When applying a security policy to multiple files, each file should not have to automatically open with a pop-up box "do you want to save changes to "filename"? When the question pops up for the first file, we need to have a little checkbox with the option to select: "do this for all files".
    It's extremely tedious when asked the same question over and over (120 times) for a batch of PDFs to which you've selected to apply a security policy.
    Also, there's a slight bug - the security policy is never applied to the final file.

  4. Panoramic from a MOVING platform.

    For PHOTOSHOP:
    This may be a whole new project...I'm doing specialized work from an aircraft...taking dozens of photographs of, say, a Main Street covering one mile. Using the dozens of overlapping digital photos, can you create a program to stitch these dozens of photos together to create a rendering showing that entire mile of road? Extreme panorama shot from a moving platform.

    ANSWER WAS USE PHOTOMERGE.

    Tried. It doesn't work. So, can you push a request to the "Big Guys" at Adobe and see if such a program can be created. My last try used only six photos with about…

  5. Documents not displaying correctly in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.006.20042

    My new HP laptop doesn't display PDFs correctly using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.006.20042. It's got Windows 10 installed, which is up-to-date, and I've followed the advice on the forums - changed some settings, uninstalled & reinstalled the software, and HP have checked & reinstalled the video drivers, but still documents do not display correctly. HP won't help, as they say it's software related. The same documents display fine on my old laptop, and within a browser, so there is no issue with the documents. As a customer, the journey is not great that a brand new laptop can't even…

  7. Bug in helpsite Fix the OCR error Could Not Perform Recognition in Acrobat

    The german version of the helpsite is contradictory to the english one:
    In "Additional Information" it reads:
    Acrobat kann OCR in einem Dokument durchführen, das bearbeitbaren Text enthält.
    In the english version it reads:
    Acrobat cannot perform OCR on a document that contains renderable text.
    The german version should be corrected because it is misleading!

  10. Remove the 'Home', 'Tools', 'Document' buttons.

    Remove the 'Home', 'Tools', 'Document' buttons.
    Again, these buttons seem to me that they belong on the main tool bar, instead of wasting tons of space on the 'customizable' quick access tool bar. Why are they there? i don't know.
    It seems to me, that adobe has a lot of programmers with ideas, but no adobe test users, to let them know, whether the idea is good or bad.

    Adobe: please don't rely on us, the general user, to give you feedback to do that job for you. We all have work to do, and want to get it done…

  11. Remove the 'share', 'feedback', 'learn', 'notification' and 'profile' buttons

    Remove the 'share', 'feedback', 'learn', 'notification' and 'profile' buttons.
    these buttons are rarely (possibly never) used by the average pdf user.
    even if they are used by some, they should be removable, just like any other tools on the 'customizable' quick access tool bar.
    it is very annoying to have 5 big buttons getting priority over the customizable tool bar. I add and remove the buttons i need on the quick access tool bar, and they end up being hidden by 5 big useless buttons.
    move these buttons to the help menu, where they belong.

  14. Remove or have an option to turn of document caching in Acrobat

    As an agency, we prepare artwork in Indesign and PDF to send to clients. All work is proofed within Acrobat prior to sending and amended if required.

    Any amends are re-pdf'd and re-proofed. These amends need to stay under the same version no (read file name) but unfortunately Acrobat now caches pdfs so if we amends a document within indesign and re-open in acrobat with the same file name, it will open the older cached version and not the updated version.

    Because this is our internal proof, this file name and version no needs to stay the same before we…

  17. Separate the Ability of Filling Fields and Signing Fields

    Suggesting: Fill-able Fields and Signature Fields should have separate rights and properties that made them independently manageable such as:

    Providing users the ability to lock out the ability to fill out a fields SEPARATELY from signing fields when using password protection

    OR simply making these fill-able and singable fields distinctly separate to where when going through the process to send a document out for the signature of recipients, users are able to ensure that fill-able fields REMAIN READ ONLY.

    Problem: We would like to fill out a form for a new employee including their pay rate for their offer letter.

  18. Photoshop export as JPG is defaulting to 96dpi and unchangeable

    Prior to fall 2019 I could export a JPG file from Photoshop at the resolution specified in the print option. now as of release 21.1.1 it only exports as 96dpi. (As a work around I need to use Adobe Bridge to export the file correctly.) The current online documentation was done in 2019 and supports how I had been exporting.
    I understand the export interface was standardized. This appears to be a software regression.

    The output resolution of a jpg file should be able to be adjusted by the user from the export interface.

  19. User doesn't have license gets Weird error message while login

    On accessing the below link

    https://cliffordchance.eu1.documents.adobe.com/account/home


    • user is directed to SSO page

    • he provides his email address there to sign-in

    • if the user does not have the necessary license to use Adobe Sign, he gets a weird message that the users do not like (screenshot attached).

    Can you please change it to something that is more meaningful to a common user and he clearly understands what is it that he/she is lacking.

  20. Checkbox to flatten files before combining

    I used acrobat to create a fillable pdf. Now, when I receive them back, I want to be able to combine them into 1 pdf. When I do that, it overwrites all the fields with the info from the first file. Incredibly not helpful. If there was a box that I could check that would tell the program to flatten the files before they were combined, that would be helpful.
