  1. Access Error

    Won't let me create PDF from HTML doc's.
    Has been working up to Feb 5 2021 and now it states it doesn't recognize the file.
    If I can't use the app when needed, why am I charged every month for your service?

    Need this fixed or cancel service

  3. Assign shortcut keys to all menus and options

    Not only is the DC interface confusing and more time-consuming to use than the old one, but it does not comply with Section 508 of the Americans With Disability Act, which requires that the federal government, in its software procurement process, consider accessibility. Adobe Acrobat does not take into account the needs of users who rely on voice recognition software to accomplish actions that fully abled users accomplish with the mouse. When using voice recognition software, it is quick and easy to dictate a shortcut key or sequence of shortcut keys, but extremely slow, cumbersome and error-prone to get the…

  5. Acrobat PDFMaker -- incorrect and inconsistent page size printing from Excel

    When printing an Excel workbook, if any of the tabs have "autofit" turned on, or a Shrink to Fit percentage, the output PDF has different size pages, rather than being shrunk to fit.

    For example, print a simple workbook tab with 90% scaling on 8.5x11 paper, and the PDF created measures 9.44x12.22 inches. It should be 8.5x11 inches.

    This causes strange behavior during continuous scrolling, as the user expects to see the same size page boundary (A4/Letter) and they are all different. Other non-Adobe PDF software does not do this.

  6. Adobe Acrobat Portfolio and Attachment Features Need Keyboard Accessibility Enabled to read documents and access the Open Document Link

    Within Adobe Acrobat there are options to Create a Portfolio of documents or to use the Attachment feature to create a group of documents. While keyboard shortcuts allow you to browse some of the menus, get to the document list, and select a document from the list. However, there is not a keyboard short cut to read the document in the view or to access the Open Document link. It seems to be only available through mouse selection.

    This places users of these features at risk because the end user can't access the document to read it using only keyboard…

    Hi,
    As I can see, the issue is related to keyboard keys, Please follow the below controls to access the Open Document link.
    Use tab to click on Attachment in Left Hand Pane. Press tab multiple times to bring the focus on the Option menu. Click Enter and Use arrow keys to navigate inside Options menu items. This resolves your access to Open Document Link.

    Secondly, Use Ctrl+Shift+Y and then Ctrl+Shift+V/B to read the document using Read out loud feature. You can alternatively see it in View Menu → Read Out Loud → Click Activate ROL → Click Read this page/ end of the document.

    Please confirm if this resolves your issue.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  7. Bug: Export to Excel combining separate data into same column

  8. Converting files - Acrobat XI Pro vs Acrobat Pro DC

    Acrobat Pro DC does not convert files as well as Acrobat XI Pro. I was told by support that developing code to convert every font is not possible; however it was possible for XI Pro. I don't want bells & whistles. I just want software that works. Attached are files converted via XI Pro and via Pro DC. Converting as a print file works but it is very inconvenient. I have lots of Word and Excel examples which I can send to someone. I do not want to attach confidential files in this type of forum.

  9. [Bug] Acrobat DC 2020 | exporting to Word – images with text are blurry (OCR disabled)

    Acrobat DC 2020 (20.013.20064)
    MacOSX 10.14.16

    Exporting PDFs in Acrobat DC 2020 to Word (.docx or .doc) embedded raster images with (rastered) text (e.g. maps etc.) are blurry/with low resolution in the resulting Word document. This is especially the case if the export OCR option is clearly disabled. Other raster images (without text) are not affected. Embeeded raster images in the source PDF can be jpg or tif with "high" resolution like 300 or 600dpi and the result is allways the same bad quality for raster images with text (either source format of the embedded images), but as good as…

  11. Crashes from Word/Excel 2016; both the plug-in and Save As PDF

    I get repeated hard-reboot crashes when creating PDFs from relatively small simple Word documents. I follow the instructions, remove and re-add the plugin, still it can take 20 minutes to get a 9-page, no images or links Word document to PDF correctly. Please fix this.
    Windows 10, Acrobat Pro DC version 2020 (latest), Microsoft Word and Excel 2016.

  13. Read-out bug

    I want to report a bug in the read-out loud feature of Acrobat Pro DC. I’m using a Mac (Mojave), and I have already set its accessibilty options to my favorite system voice and speaking rate. I thought I’d have a PDF doc read out aloud while I work on some graphics. The default voice was meh-next-to-terrible, so I looked under preferences for an option to change voice. I found it and was happy to find a long list of available voices, including the ones I already have installed on my computer. So I selected my favorite voice and tried…

    Hi,
    Thank you for connecting with us. I understand your concern here. Currently we have to select the voice from Preferences and then check the voice on pdf.
    Also we have kept this request in our radar. We currently do not have any plan to implement it but you may see it in future releases.

    Thanks

  14. Convert pdf to word in bulk

    I have to convert files from Word to PDF and in this case I need to convert multiple pages from PDF to Word. I have five folders, 150 pages per folder. I just spent an hr with with a Adobe assistant and all i can do is 10 pages at a time. Not helpful at all.

  15. Error when exporting PDF

    When attempting to export a pdf to a jpg, png, or tiff an error stating that the image is too wide to output occurs. This only happens with some files, but not all.

    We were able to convert the pdf using your online tool.

  16. macOS Big Sur Beta 10: Page scrolling unbearably slow

    Even in the latest public beta of MacOS 11, overall performance of Acrobat is sluggish. The app may take over a second to respond to a page scroll request via track pad and scrolling will be choppy.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the issue that you are facing here.

    We tried this at our end but couldn’t get a reproducible case.

    Could you please share your BigSur Beta10 Machine configuration/System Information?

    Also could you please share a Screen recording video of the sluggish behavior that you observe?

    Thanks

  18. Files that I personally created are being password protected randomly.

    PDF files that I created are being password protected randomly. This is a major issue because i need to be able to edit/merge these files for work. I did not set up or request a password to be added so I have no idea what password it is looking for.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, though this sounds very strange. Can you kindly share the steps you are following to create the pdf. I am asuming it is asking for a password when you are trying to reopen it later – correct me if it is not so.
    Also share the version of the software you are using as well as the version of the Operating system.

  19. Add feture to insert image file of physical stamps on all pages of a pdf file in one step

    As we need to put company stamp on big documents having 100+ pages so we had made an image file and added in Fill & sign section but since it doesn't have option to insert the stamp on all pages of documents it results in time taking job.
    So, i request you to look out for solution & add the required update in the Acrobrat DC

  20. Some colums are merged when exporting a PDF into XLSX (Excel)

    Tried converting several PDF files with the same format into Excel, two colums get incorrectly combined on all of them, this doesn't happen when using a different, free, online service.
