  1. Save in Recent Selected Folders

    In past versions of Adobe, if I was saving multiple documents, the program would remember the last folder I saved the document to, so it would automatically go to that folder when saving another document. At the moment, it will only open temporary files and I will have to waste time clicking around to find the correct folder that I want to save the document to. There needs to be an update to allow the flexibility to save documents to the last folder selected.

    Hi,

    Thanks for providing your feedback. The last folders where you have saved your previous files should get listed under the My computer section of the Save As dialog.

    Can you please share the snapshot of your Save As dialog?

    Regards,
    Sandeep

  2. Bug: "No error" message when viewing XFA forms

    In version 2021.001.20138 it's impossible to open XFA-based forms (sample attached).


    1. Open any XFA form.

    2. All you get is an modal message "No error". When you click [OK] then you'll see the "Please wait …" shell PDF of the XFA form, which is generally only shown by PDF viewer that don't support XFA.

    3. Tested on Windows 10

    4. Display contens of dynamic XFA form

    5. Nonsense error message "No error." and display of shell PDF.

    The problem is the same in Acrobat Reader DC.

  3. Enable width reduction of "output preview" window

    The output preview ("op") window has a standard width that can not be underrun. As the window is very big, it would help if you could narrow the window more than it is possible at the moment. Therefore you would have more space on the monitor for your document itself. In my case with my older monitor, the window uses nearly one-third of the space of the whole screen and annoys me very often.

  4. Can we open a PDF file like a code file, the way we used to open our code file in gvim

    Can we open a PDF file like a code file, the way we used to open our code file in gvim ie same file can be open in two/three tabs. (like seeing function decl. & it's call?) This would be very useful to read in a large PDF file, such as reading a sub chapter on page number 50 and referencing page number 225 for further explanation.

  6. Constant requirement to sign in to our account to use software. Getting impatient...

    This needs to be fixed. We are wasting a lot of time constantly be required to sign in to our account, often times on a weekly basis.
    We have an annual subscription and this should not be happening.
    Frankly I'm getting **** tired of it.
    FIX THIS!!!

  7. Scale Ratio Rounds to 2 Decimal Places

    The scale ratio requires you to input decimals rather than fractions when measuring architectural scales, i.e. 0.125" = 1'-0" for 1/8" = 1'-0". However, after inputting the decimals, Acrobat rounds to the nearest 2 decimal places. So 0.125" becomes 0.13". Doing so makes all measurements off by .005". This is unacceptable in the architectural world. This functionality should NEVER round the decimals, and should house at least 3 decimal places to ensure accuracy.

    This occurs on Mac and Windows, in every version of Acrobat and Acrobat Pro currently downloadable. It was tested by my team and internally at Adobe.

  8. Acrobat Pro 2020 is Uggggg-ly! And User Interface Worse

    This new version looks so childish! Not professional in appearance at all.

    AND... too many steps to digitally sign a document! It used to be so easy! Can't you revert back to what worked smoothly???????

    I truly detest working in Acrobat now.

  10. copy text from PDF including changes (e.g. made with "strikethrough" or "insert" tools)

    In the commenting mode for Acrobat DC Pro, there are "strikethrough", "replace", and "insert text" tools, among others.

    When I select and copy some text (for example, to count the words or rephrase it in another window), it copies the original text and disregards anything crossed out or inserted. This means I have to re-do all the changes by hand.

    It would be great if one could copy the text in a way that incorporates the changes, similar to how you can opt to copy text with or without formatting, in some programs.

  11. Adobe CC Photography Plan interferes with existing Acrobat installation

    I have a fully licensed and paid-for Acrobat DC 2015 program. The Adobe CC Photography plan has installed an 'update' that prevents me from using the program unless I pay $20 a month for a subscription to the new program. I have already paid for what I have and it satisfies my requirement once every few months to re-order pages in an Acrobat document. How can I get my paid-foir program back?

  12. Acrobat saves prior version of file exported from Indesign and ignores subsequent version

    This is a horrendous bug that I can recreate umpteen times. If a file is exported from Indesign to Acrobat, and then the Indesign file is edited and re-exported to Acrobat, if you try to save the revised version in Acrobat, Acrobat saves the original version (which I presume it holds in memory) and ignores the revised version. The only fix I have found is to close Indesign and Acrobat and start again - this seems to clear the prior version from Acrobat. This is really dangerous for users and immensely inconvenient. Adobe please fix asap.

  13. Bring Back Real Deskew

    I work a lot with 2-bit (black/white) files of music scores. Since there is not a lot of text, the OCR-based deskew doesn't always work. In the current version of Acrobat DC there is NO incremental rotate, and if you use the "Edit Using" function to get to Photoshop, the Arbitrary rotation functionality is unavailable. This means there is CURRENTLY NO WAY TO DESKEW MUSIC using any combination of Adobe products. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

  14. Wanted: Acrobat DC updates WITHOUT system reboot

    ISSUE


    • Acrobat DC on Win10 system does updates in the background without asking

    • requires system reboot afterwards / otherwise no access to PDF files anymore

    • the updates interrupt the whole working process and costs valuable time saving and closing all projects and rebooting the system in order to get Acrobat running again

    REQUEST TO ADOBE SUPPORT
    Will this be fixed in an upcoming upgrade / e.g. the announced 64-bit roll-out of Acrobat?

    Thanks
    Regards

  15. Reader 2021.001.20138 suddenly running form javascripts incredibly slowly and freezing

    A complex form that ran fine under older versions of reader, is now intermittently running some of the onboard javascripts incredibly slowly and appearing to the user as freezing (Not Responding).
    This does not always occur, and occurs during different operations (using different document level scripts).
    I am using Windows 10 Pro 19041.804 (most recent) and have experienced it on Reader 2021.001.20138 32bit and 64bit versions.

  16. Acrobat Reader DC Freezes up

    Acrobat Reader DC freezes up. this started about 2 weeks ago. Ehen opening a PDF some time i can scroll for a short while then it freezes or some times it freezes as soon as it is launched. I've been through all of the suggested steps nothing so far helps. what next? I don't get an error code. Operating system is Windows 8.1. It worked fine on windows 8.1 earlier so I assume an update was pushed that was not compatible with my machine.

    Help

  17. Scrolling preferences window (Windows)

    Currently the preferences window is very hard to use and frankly, broken:

    You can't scroll with a touchpad.

    You can't scroll with a touchscreen.

    You can't scroll with a mousewheel.

    Scrolling over a combo box changes the setting >:(

    Content doesn't scroll when you drag the scrollbar!

    The preferences window cannot resize small enough for smaller screens.

    Overall: infurating.

  18. When working with a document in Adobe Sign, the "Send" button is hidden behind a "Contact Us" bubble

    Don't hide the send button behind the Contact us bubble! Just lost an hour (and so did your customer service person) trying to figure out why I could not send a document.

  19. embedded

    When converting documents that contain embedded documents to PDF, the final product should keep those embedded documents intact instead of converting them to images - forcing you to go back one by one and reembed the document.

  20. Automatically crop PDF-pages to the edges of the document

    Make Adobe Acrobat PRO DC be able to automatically crop PDF pages to the edges of the document. For example, send in an agreement photographed on a table with unnecessary artifacts (table, hands, etc.). You need to be able to turn a PDF file into an A4 document at the touch of a button.
