  1. Mac Acrobat DC Does Not Create PDF from Excel

    When I drag an excel file to the Adobe dock icon or attempt to create a PDF in Acrobat I get an error of a duplicate file in the temp folder.

    I've tried clearing out the temp folder. Also, I've reinstalled Acrobat and Microsoft office. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Optional setting to default to document title in Initial View

    Currently, even though an MS Word document may have a Title property, when the PDF is created the Acrobat default initial view is to the document file name rather than the PDF's title properties. Since this doesn't pass the accessibility check it requires that the setting be changed on each PDF. I would like to see it either default to the Title property, or provide the option in the PDF Maker plug-in for MS Word.

    Hi

    This feature has now been enabled in Acrobat Pro DC with the October update but it is by default turned Off.
    In order to enable it, you would need to create a Reg_Dword “4255031” and set it to 1 at the following location:

    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureState

    Please note: This will work for only PDFs from Word/Excel which have been created using Acrobat post setting this registry and won’t work for older PDFs.

    Thanks

  5. Transparency check box in border color disappeared

    When I try to change the border color under the prepare tool I am not prompted with a transparency check box in the color select window that pops up as I previously was. Ive checked other PDF's that I've created and I am coming across the same issues.

  6. HIghlighting Text

    For the highlight function, there should be the ability to change colors easily. Right now the process is cumbersome and time-consuming. When I have to be able to access my highlighted test for citations, it would be wonderful to be able to export to word documents with a click.

  8. Bug: Unable to set stroke/fill for form objects

    Many months since Mac OS High Sierra was available in public beta, and well over a month since release, there still exists a bug that prevents the setting of stroke and fill for form objects. For the millions of Acrobat users that regularly create forms in Acrobat, this is a very serious bug that should have been fixed long ago.

  9. Accessibility Checker

    With Accessibility Checker, I think there is a bug - the title was flagged as an issue. I took all the steps to correct this but it continues to come up as an issue when I use the checker. I've recreated the issue twice. I'm on a Mac, OS Sierra v10.12, MS Word v15.38, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Thank you.

  10. Add option to make comment pane open automatically if there are comments

    Commenting should be listed as one of the options under Document Properties > Initial View. I find that new many people have a hard time finding the comments, because the right hand pane is hidden and they don't know to click on that tiny little right-pointing arrow. Pleas add the option for the comment pane to be open automatically, just as we can already do with the bookmarks panel.

  11. Crash when using "Convert Colors"

    This problem has been happening since the 2017 updates. Yesterday I did a clean install of Windows 10 for another issue, and the problem persists even after re-installing Windows and CC.

    Steps:
    1. Open a PDF file.
    2. Open "Print Production" -> "Convert Colors"
    3. Under "Matching Criteria" select "Color Type -> Spot Colors"
    4. Click "OK"

    Then Acrobat Crashes for me every time, on every PDF file I try.

    I use this feature a lot because our equipment is CMYK Digital, and we often get files with Spot Colors submitted for printing.

    I am assuming this is a but…

  14. pdfmaker does not render

    Following a recent upgrade to DC from XI, I have an issue with images in .docx files not being rendered by PDFMaker.

    Attached is a sample source file together with output from the Adobe PDF driver and from PDFMaker.

    The issue may be triggered by the insertion format of the image: the workaround is copy it out to an image editor then paste back as DIB.

    Note that this is definitely a regression from the XI PDFMaker which performed fine on the same files only a couple of months ago.

    PS Why on earth does PDFMaker not use the same…

    OS: 10.13.1 & Acrobat Pro DC 17.12.20098.240878

    When building a form for a client, I use the "Add An Image Field". This field stopped working properly after I updated OS and to CC 2018. Now when the client tries to add a photo, everything works as expected through the photo upload process, but the photo will not display in the photo's form field after they click the "OK" button after browsing for and uploading the photo.

    The options for the button are "Label only", "Invert", State: Up. These are the default settings for the Image field.

  16. Bug Report: File location incorrect with overlapping names

    We have identified a possible bug with both Acrobat and Acrobat Pro when interacting with mapped network drives.

    Our organization has multiple network drives that are mapped by group policy. Two are name "Shared" and "Shared2" and mapped to S: and T: respectively.

    After opening a drive located on Shared2 (path "T:\Folder\File.pdf") and closing Acrobat, attempting to open the file from Recent file list gives a "File Not Available" error. When this occurs, the location is listed as "S:\2\Folder\File.pdf". It appears there is a substitution being made in the path because "Shared" is in both locations. This occurs every time…

  17. Opacity

    Since updating to High Sierra, I have been unable to adjust the color opacity when filling in color for text/form boxes. The "Colors" box used to have something at the bottom for adjusting the opacity, and, since the opacity is turned all the way up by default, I have no way of actually filling in these boxes with color.

  19. Bug Report - Can't scroll to next page while in "Fill & Sign"

    Bug Report - Can't scroll to next page while in "Fill & Sign"

    It seems like the only way to move to the next page while using "Fill & Sign" is by clicking on the next page arrow at the bottom. This is too cumbersome, especially when you need move between pages to review the information while you are signing or adding initials to every page. It's MUCH easier to just scroll down, please change this so you are able to just scroll.

  20. Cut, copy and paste option to move pages within a pdf file

    It will be very useful to have a cut/copy and paste option for moving pages within a pdf file. Currently, you can only drag pages around and this can be a little bit messy especially if working on a large file.
