  1. Acrobat Pro is freezing for a few minutes after closing the last file

    Since yesterday, January 2, 2020, Acrobat Pro is freezing for a few minutes after closing the last file. It eventually starts working again, but it freezes again after closing another file or set of files.

  2. Problems with getting comments - people without adobe think they need to log in

    I really like the ability to share documents via the cloud but we have issues using it in our company. People who we share with don't see the "guest option" and refuse to get an adobe account and thus don't comment or request we share the original with them. Thus we have had problems with adoption and had to revert to sharing through mail. I think you have tried to make people get an account unknowingly this is discouraging adoption across a wider audience. I suggest a quick fix with the visual design to make sure that both options are…

  3. Print to Acrobat PDF in Edge creates scrambled unreadable text

    File --> print to Acrobat PDF in Edge browser often creates a PDF with scrambled unreadable text. Print to PDF works fine in Chrome. Acrobat techs: Please look into why Acrobat PDF printer driver does not work well in Edge. Create an Acrobat extension for use in Edge.

  5. The program does not allow me to save as a new document after changes are made. Please help.

    The program does not let me save changes made to a pdf document after renaming it as a new document. It shows odd characters where I made the changes. I am using a Mac.

  6. Original file name in PDF metadata

    What I’m looking for is a way to imbed the originating file name somewhere in the Meta data of the pdf for future reference. It would have nothing to do with the file name used for the PDF when exporting the original file. Use case: Often a client will rename a pdf and down the road I have to find the original Indesign file used to create that pdf.

  8. Program crashes while saving after background has been added

    When sending bills or other letters as PDF I add our company logo in the background of the document via Acrobat. Everything works as expected until I save. Then the program crashes every time. The file however emerges complete and intact after I restart Acrobat.

    MacOS 10.13.6
    Acrobat PRO DC 2019.021.20061


    • Export PDF via Save Dialog from MS Word (ver. 16.16.17)

    • Open PDF in Acrobat

    • Add Background (PDF File with Vector Graphic)

    • Save -> CRASH

    I use the current version of Acrobat, but the issue has been persistent for years.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the issue that you are facing while saving the PDF.
    Could you please share the Crash report that appears after Acrobat crashes for you on you Mac system ?

    That’ll help us to triage this issue further.

    Thanks

  9. remove sign in, notifications, provide feedback, learn adobe acrobat & share file icon (still showing even after hiding

    These icons should be able to be hidden as they take up room for other icons that I need to access continuously while viewing a document.
    they are not useful for the entire time, they are a one time thing and yet are there constantly.
    also what's the point of being able to hide the share button only to have an icon replace it, obviously if i'm hiding something it's because I don't want it there, that is just plain stupid whoever came up with that idea.

    I have the problem several times when I start with a design and end with this, it becomes a very large file, so I can work with it more easily, this will then be up to 1.6 GB, I would like you to make this smaller in illustrator, just like in photohsop. And also the idea of turning all layers into a layer, just like in photoshop

  17. password encription

    In one of the last updates, the password security has changed from allowing one to copy and paste the password into the dialogue box to requiring a manual typing of the password. When putting the password into a document for the client to open, there is always a chance to type the incorrect password and the document cannot be opened. When the document cannot be opened, I do not know what has changed from the proposed password. Having a copy and paste assures that the password in the document sent to the client is also the one securing the attached…

  18. Arial font disappeared from your app

    Arial disappeared and changing fonts screws up the formatting of the existing text. Most recently, it added a "!" at the end of every line of text. Trying to delete the "!" changes the margins and layouts to outside the borders. Trying to change the font messes it up even more.

    How do I fix this?

  19. Sharing more than one document

    You used to be able to share more than one document under file sharing, but now there is no option to add an additional file. Will that be fixed or is that a feature that will no longer be available?

  20. Serious Accessibility Bug Signature Form Accessibility

    "The lock document after signing" checkbox is not keyboard accessible.

    WCAG 2.0 and 2.1

    Success Criteria 2.1.1 Keyboard Accessibility

    To reproduce this problem open the test.pdf and select the signature field. Choose or create a digital signature and select Continue.
    Use the tab key to navigate the document.
    You will see that keyboard focus moves from the Create button (upper right) to "View Certificate Details" and "Lock document after signing" never receives Focus.

    "Lock document after signing" is not keyboard accessible.

    Tested on WIndows 7 and WIndows 10 with Acrobat DC Pro and Reader 2019.021.20061 and 2019.021.20058.

    This feature was…
