  1. Safety Preview rather than ArtBox Preview

    Seems like the ArtBox preview is redundant to the TrimBox preview. Is there a way to change ArtBox to Safety guide preview? And have the page margin guide be the Safety? The preview would be helpful for reviewing live areas before the trim.

  2. Scanned document does not print

    Mac OS Catalina Version 10.15.4, Fujitsu ScanSnap i500, HP Officejet Pro 8210. Acrobat DC
    I cannot print some large files to my HP 8210. It spends a long time sending it, but nothing happens except it disappears from the que. Since having to abandon the old Acrobat 11 Pro, this has been a reoccurring problem.

  3. Updating Shared Files

    When sharing a file for feedback, it would be nice if the shared file would update once changes are made and resaved. So you don't have to send a new link, which could get confusing if someone opens the wrong link. I hope that made sense. If this is already possible, someone please fill me in.

  4. Better labeling of Action Wizard Controls for screen reader users

    I am encountering problems with poorly labeled controls in the Acrobat DC Action Wizard. As a blind screen reader user, I would greatly appreciate anything you can do to improve the control labels that are spoken by screen readers. I am using the JAWS 2020 screen reader with Acrobat DC version 20.006.20042.
    The issues I have encountered:


    1. Some of the button control labels are unclear and it is difficult to determine which control has focus. For example, when adding a Watermark, the button to add the watermark is spoken as “Add”. If I press “space” to select this option, another…

  5. show correct colours for CMYK annotations

    According to the PDF spec it's possible to create coloured annotations which are non-RGB. However, when you create i.e. a CMYK annotation, Acrobat takes the first three values and interprets them as RGB. I.e. [1 0 0 0] results in red instead of cyan, see attached example.
    Interestingly, Preflight validates the document so somewhere in the company the knowledge is available.
    The goal should be that annotations are displayed correctly independent of how many colour channels are there.

  6. Please remove "Please wait while the document is being prepared"

    Please switch off "Please wait while the document is being prepared" displayed each time I open a document. This feature is necessary only for selected users and hampers very much typical program use.

    Hi,
    This Content Preparation dialog is displayed when some assistive technology (like screen reader) is running/has been used on the system. However, some other tools like some keypress tracking tools are also detected as assistive technology.

    1. If you are not an assistive technology user, just go to Acrobat Preferences → Accessibility and uncheck the option “Enable Assistive Technology Support”. This will stop the dialog from appearing.
    2. If you are an assistive technology user, then go to Acrobat Preferences →Reading and Under “Screen Reader Options” select “Only read the currently visible pages”. This will stop the dialog from appearing.

    Note : However with this, the dialog may appear for heavy files sometimes.

    Please confirm if this resolves your issue.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  7. Copy PDFs within Document Cloud

    It would be great if from within Adobe Document Cloud we could make copies of PDFs. Currently the workflow that was described to me from tech support was that I would have to download the PDF then upload another copy.

  8. Your product suite is the most disorganized and fragment ever. What century do you guys live in? and this feedback collection is terrible.

    Make it work. Can you please hire some real product people who can spend some time rationalizing your horrible experience?

  9. BUG Acrobat Pro DC Version 2020.006.20042

    Hello,

    Since the last update, when I go to "Create a PDF" "Multiple Files" and "Combine Files" in the latest try some photos, I end up with a Portfolio and NOT a single PDF you can scoll. It is a portfolio of individual PDFs and the title is "Portfolio" even though I did not select the Portfolio option. In addition, it is erasing the original files. ALL the original PNG photo files have been erased and no longer on the harddrive. This has now happened twice.
    I would like to combine PDFs into a single scrollable document and not have…

  11. Adobe Acrobat Salesforce Integration

    We're using Adobe Acrobat Pro for our PDF edition and it's awesome. We also use Salesforce, we're looking for a way to manipulate PDF inside Salesforce like we do in the Adobe Acrobat. In the moment we have to take the PDF from Salesforce, download it, edit it, and the upload it again, it will be awesome if we could just modify the PDF inside Salesforce (It will save us a lot of time)

  12. Make Auto OCR a switchable preference, not default!

    Auto OCR cannot be switched off, but is not always welcome nor even meaningful. Moreover, it takes a lot of time and/or many its to the 'cancel' button.
    Please, make it selectable preference - as it was before.

  13. save sessions

    Hello, can you maybe integrate a way of saving pdf-sessions (multiple tabs saving and storaging at a place, f.e. work, study-subject 1, 2, etc.)

    always have to open up 4-5 tabs in different pathways, it's time intensive!

  15. Text Field Options: Double Spacing, Single Spacing, Blockquotes

    I am making grant application forms where students have to write a short essay that sometimes needs to be 2-3 pages in length. Others have already requested options where the text fields can be linked and the text can flow from one page to the next. I have definitely voted in favor of this option.

    I would like to add another option. I would like the option to format the text that is entered in the text field as double-spaced, single-spaced, or in blockquotes. It seems like there should be much more robust options in this regard.

  16. Better customer information, possibility to pause subscription

    It has taken me an hour to get clear information on the options for purchasing Acrobat. I couldn't find any information on how to buy the 'perpetual licence' or what this entailed - nor what the differences are between the subscription and one-time purchase. I had to ask all these questions through an incredibly inefficient online chat. This information should be freely available and transparent for customers - companies generally do this so that customers don't waste hours and end up feeling vaguely conned before they have even bought anything. Apart from that issue, I suggest a subscription service that…

  17. PDF Printer executable to be installable anywhere (CRM:00989000000047)

    Dear all,

    I have just talked with your support but unfortunately I didn't get the hoped reply.
    Anyway, as you may know we're experiencing a bad period around the world about Corona Virus and also for IT Technicians like me is not easy to manage all of the requests related to satisfy users in Agile Working from home, that the company require to us.
    One of the most challenging request to us is the one related to the paperless solution, combining existing systems with PDF solution in order to provide digital prints.

    In my case at the moment, I'm using…

  19. Please fix linkCreation.dotm

    Acrobat Pro (for the last several versions) continues to install linkCreation.com into MS Word directories, even though it is known to cause Word either to crash or to throw VBA errors. Please either fix the template or stop installing it.
