  1. Support for Microsoft Azure Information Protection in Pro and Reader

    Currently only Nitro and Foxit support AIP. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/SharePoint-Compatible-PDF-readers-that-support-Microsoft-Information-Rights-Management-services-DD197D58-5BF6-4D18-B9F8-D16DB603FAE2

    We really need this feature enabled or we will have to change our PDF software to one of these products. GDPR is forcing our hand on this.

  2. Adding Bates Numbering Range to Existing File Names

    As Bates Numbering/Stamping is commonly used in the legal profession and because we typically handle a large number of documents it would be nice if Adobe had the capability to allow you to Add Bates Numbering Ranges to the EXISTING File Names.

    For example, after you click on Add Bates Numbers, you can click on Output Options, and the window pops-up where you can have the option to either keep the original file names OR replace the file names with the starting and ending Bates Number (e.g. 000100-000115.pdf). I want to do both and keep the original file name with…

  4. Acrobat Pro DC: Want "comment" view to open when I open a PDF.

    Please provide a preference so the "Comment" view opens whenever I open a document in Acrobat Pro DC (for Windows).
    This was a valuable feature on previous Acrobat versions and was dropped in Acrobat Pro DC.

  6. Cannot Save/Extract Separate Pages of a PDF

    I want to save a handful of pages from a pdf that's has 175 pages. When I try to extract the pages, I get an error pop-up that indicates there was an error in the page number input, however there wasn't a second window to input the pages I want to extract. I pay an exorbitant amount of money for the Adobe service that I have and I am astonished that such a simple thing cannot be done with your software.

    I am attaching images of what happens even though I follow the correct process of extracting pages, (first screenshot)…

  8. E-signed PDF Files Became Password Locked Unintentionally

    At the time I got e-signed PDF files from our business partner I could open the files. However suddenly the files got password locked although nobody didn't make password lock on the file.

    This phenomena happens under specific environments and not happens under another specific environments I write following.

    As additional information, I indexed PDF files including above files. Nevertheless almost all of indexed PDF files haven't gotten password locked, so that I cannot attribute the reason of unintentional password lock to indexing.

  10. Since Update 18.11.2003x - Cannot open PDF - asking for Password

    Multiple Users - Multiple PDF files. Mixed Windows 7 32/64bit and 10. All versions of Adobe Acrobat DC. Since the update 18.11.2003x when opening a PDF within IE it's asking for a password. Chrome is not an option.
    Our current workaround is removing all adobe apps and reinstalling before the update. Then disabling the auto update.
    Looking for long term solution.

  11. Page Thumbnails

    In the page thumbnail area in Adobe it would be nice to be able to jump a page from its current location to the front or end of a document. Also, it would be nice to be able to copy paste a page in this area as well.

    Thank you.

  12. Bug report: After update 18.011.20035/15.006.30143 Password Required to open form

    Acrobat DC Continuous 2018.011.20035
    Windows 10 64 bits

    Unable to open our standard time sheet, which is a .pdf form, and has been in use for years.
    Form opens as usual on computers that have not received the recent update.
    When we try to open the form after the Acrobat update, form requires password to open ('std634.pdf' is protected. Please enter a Document Open Password.)

  13. Bug: missing menu accelerators for File and Edit in Japanese environments

    In Windows Japanese language environments, Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC don't have menu accelerators such as Alt+F and Alt+E for Edit, even though Alt+F, Alt+V and Alt+H work fine. See attached.
    I guess that their resource file may define menus like "ファイル", "編集", "表示(&V)", "ウィンドウ(&W)" and "ヘルプ(&H)". Fix first 2 of them like "ファイル(&F)" and "編集(&E)".
    I also guess these definitions are in ExLang32.JPN, but I'm not sure.
    I've observed this issue, most of Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC running on my Windows 7. I am confirming it with Acrobat Pro DC 2015.006.30413 today.

    Hi

    You can now drag and drop files to re-arrange them in a portfolio. You can also create a folder and add files in it via drag & drop in the latest version of Acrobat DC.
    I will close this case. Please reopen another thread if you feel you issue still hasn’t been addressed.

    Thanks

    Acrobat Customization Tool > Online Services and Features > Third-party connectors. The only option is to disable or enable all third party connectors. You should add the option to select which third party connectors are enabled. We would like to use OneDrive only but unfortunately, this also allows Dropbox and Box.

  17. Stop showing my name in the user interface

    I am so SICK of the brain dead idea that we need to have our names plastered all over everything in our user interfaces in case we forget who we are or, as somebody with an oversized paycheck and an undersized amount of common sense might put it, "to personalise the user experience".

    What it REALLY does is compromise our privacy. Constantly. We've working on a scree at lunch time or on a train? There's our name, for anyone to see. We take a screenshot? There's our name. It serves NO copnstructive purpose and it is ANNOYING.

    Yet there it…

  19. Make Comments Toolbar Open Automatically/By Default

    I would LOVE it if you folks could make the Comments Tool auto-open and/or by default somehow. I open lots and lots of pages every day and it would be really wonderful if the Comments just opened every time I opened a new doc.

  20. Please make Acrobat the same way it was before. I want the tools bar to be on the right side and not on the top as a tab, this is annoying.

    It is very annoying to change the layout of the interface when users are used to a certain layout for years. Please put the tools in the side bar instead of a tab. This wastes time to go to another screen and then after clicking on the tool, it opens up.
