  1. Replacement Text (AccSupp ActualText entry) Support

    We noticed that your PDF viewer doesn't have AccSupp ActualText support. This means that copy-pasting technical text such as shellscripts and programming code, does not work in your PDF viewer and this greatly restrains the use of your whole program.

    The replacement text is said to be supported, according to the file "Document management - Portable document format - Part 1: PDF 1.7" both on Table 323, page 559, and on section 14.9.4, page 615. Available here: https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/devnet/pdf/PDF32000_2008.pdf.

    But according to the tests made using PDFs produced by pdflatex using the package accsupp, the replacement text support seems to…

  4. Tells me update failed to install, when it is installed

    Acrobat DC has become a royal pain in the behind. First of all, with this NUL license concept, it takes way, way too long to convert Word documents to .pdf. It sits there doing nothing for a long time, and finally wakes up and begins the process. Is it possible you people don't test these things? This always happens now, ever since your brainchild change. Secondly, it keeps telling me that it failed to install a version 2020.009.20063, when that version is already installed! What a nuisance of a system this has become.

  7. BUG: Fillable Date Format (Auto-Conversion BROKEN)

    When a valid date is entered using a format different from the format specified by the form date field, Acrobat automatically converts this to the specified format on-screen. However the saved data remains in the originally-entered (incorrect) format.

    Example: Field Name: "DateOfBirth" Format: mm/dd/yyyy

    Entered: "12 Aug 2002" Form displays: "08/12/2002" following entry

    It APPEARS the date was converted to the specified format.

    Export Data saves this as: ... <</T(DateOfBirth)/V(12 Aug 2002)>> ...

    This indicates the original entry was saved, not the converted date.

    This SHOULD be saved as: ... <</T(DateOfBirth)/V(03/12/2002)>> ...

    When returning to the DateOfBirth field the display…

  8. why would you change the name of the tool from Adobe Sign to Request signature?

    My ADobe Sign tool button disappeared - I had to chat online with tech support - she had me sign out and back in - still no Adobe Sign button but I saw a new button Request Signature (which is now Adobe Sign) but now every time I close out of a PDF I can't see either tool anymore - I have to sign out and back in again to see the Request for Signature. what is going on?

  9. Conditional logic.

    Would be fantastic if text or signature fields can only be completed if certain other fields are completed or boxes checked. I know DocuSign offers this functionality in their commercial license, which is very expensive.

  10. Bug: OCR Correct Recognized Text changes "•" to "€" upon save

    There is an issue with the "Review recognized text" feature. It fails to properly update the OCR text when a correction is made. It erroneously replaces the special character "•" with "€" upon clicking Accept. So for example, the slogan "Cleaner Air • Safer Roads" will be saved incorrectly as "Cleaner Air € Safer Roads". I'll happily provide the example document via email if requested.

    I'm running MacOS MacOS Big Sur Version 11.0 Beta (20A5384c) and Acrobat Pro DC Version 2020.012.20048

  11. Create PDF for Javascript-powered web pages

    I like the ability to capture HTML pages together with images into one PDF document.

    Unfortunately the web has changed and many web pages use Javascript to fill out the DOM tree, as a result content is missing from pages like:

    https://ropercenter.cornell.edu/ipoll/search?q=dreams

    which makes a blank page PDF. There are tools out there that can make a capture of modern web pages using Chromium, PhantomJS, or HTMLUnit to run the Javascript. One can be found here:

    https://conifer.rhizome.org/

    sometimes these work, but the WARC file and the WARC file players are awful. It reminds me of the times that you go…

  12. Microsoft Teams - Integrate Acrobat DC - "Open in App"

    When using Microsoft Teams, there should be an option to "Open in App" from within files inside of Teams. Currently only Microsoft files are allowed to be opened in an external Application. For example, Word documents can be opened as "Open in App". PDF file open in Teams as a "viewer" and not editable or printable. See screenshots.

  13. Re-send signable agreement with corrected fill fields

    When an error is made in an Adobe Sign template, but the error is not realized until after the document is sent for signature (or worse yet, already signed), it is nearly impossible to correct the issue and re-send the form. It should be the case that, a document pending signature or already signed, can be re-sent and everything is already filled out except for the field which was modified. For example, I realized that I accidentally assigned one field at the end of a document (among dozens of fillable fields) to the wrong person...the person got all the way…

  16. Adobe DC crashes when opening second pdf - reason: win 10 cumulative update

    When trying to open a second pdf in an new tab, Acrobat DC crashes after some seconds of freeze.

    I found the reason for this in the latest two Win 10 cumulative updates of 08 and 09/2020. Skipping the update in August and hoping, that the update in September works better didn't help. Deinstalling these updates solves the problem.

    Some other applications are affected as well (like the launcher from EA/Origin or the Samsung Magician).

    This is the message from the windows event viewer:
    Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: Acrobat.exe, Version: 20.12.20048.6926, Zeitstempel: 0x5f5b9602
    Name des fehlerhaften Moduls: D3D9.DLL, Version: 10.0.19041.488,…

  18. Comment Tooolbar should have the option to be always open

    The fact that you do not have the option to permanently keep the comment toolbar permanently open is a CONSTANT source of annoyance and should be changed! Open, closed, open, closed, open, closed, open, closed..... It's insanity! And opening the toolbar is laggy to top it off. I see comments that are 4 years old on this topic and Adobe has not adapted to users wishes. Please change it back to the way it used to be or provide the CHOICE to have it always open if that's your preference. Seriously.

  19. Flatten transparency results into false handling of a smooth shade and damaged result

    When flattening the attached PDF with Acrobat DC, the shade (which is covered by a vector object and therefore only visible as some kind of a frame), becomes visible.
    This is clearly not the expected results and therefore a bug.

  20. Adobe Sign view field allocation after sending

    Creator should be able to see the allocation of fields after sending, i.e., make it visible which fields have been assigned to whom.
