  3. Bug: Add to an already made selection with the mouse

    If you already have an object selected and need to add to that selection the common universal procedure is to hold down the shift key on the keyboard while clicking the object you want to add to the already made selection. It works fine unless you have the "Output Preview" window open. In that case instead of adding to a selection it creates a new sticky note. You used a universal keyboard/mouse combo for "adding to a selection" to instead create a new sticky note but only when "Output Preview" is open. This needs to be changed to a different…

    Hi All,

    With the latest update of Acrobat on 13th Feb, this issue has been addressed. Make sure you are on the latest update by visiting Help > Check for updates (https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/continuous/dccontinuousfeb2018.html#dccontinuousfebruarytwentyeighteen/ ).

    We have added a preference "Use Shift + Click for Multiple Selection with Output Preview " to enable multiple objects selection when the output preview dialog is open. To select multiple objects, use Shift + Click. To add a sticky note containing the color values, use Alt + Click (on Windows) or Option + Click (on Mac).

    For more details, refer https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/previewing-output-acrobat-pro.html .

    Please try it out and let us know your feedback.

    Regards,
    Priyanka Jain

  4. Acrobat pro 2017 can`t re-arrange sort order after creating Portfolio

    when adding another file it goes to the end . In older versions of Acrobat Pro you could sort & re-arrange Portfolio files
    tried that workaround where you create a new column in view /portfolio details & edit the values to get the files in the proper order sequence .. bit that is a bit of a kludge & really doesn`t affect the printing order of individual Portfolio files or default view when opening

  5. Saving hanging

    I and several of my coworkers are having Adobe Acrobat DC hang on us while saving files. It can be while just normal save (Command-C) or when doing a Save As.... Apparently the file gets fully saved, because when we reopen Acrobat after a force quit, and say No to recover, the file seems fine. But Acrobat will hang or freeze, the progress bar stays up, and eventually the OS says Acrobat is unresponsive. We need to force quit it to get back to restart Acrobat. Trashing preferences or changing where we save the file (resident drive or server) makes…

  6. Acrobat XI Pro crashes in some forms after update to 11.0.21

    After updating Acrobat XI Pro to 11.0.21, a form that previously worked now crashes when undertaking different actions. The same form works in Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.20, and the latest version of Acrobat DC Pro (as at 08/18/2017. The crashes occur when selecting an item from a drop-down list [the crash occurs at a point in the script where a rawValue is extracted from a checkbox, i.e. Page.SubForm.Checkbox.rawValue; however, even creating a variable referencing the Page, i.e. var page1 = Page; appears to create the error.] It also crashes when closing a page, event.target.closeDoc(true).

    Event log and crash dump: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p9fh00zbkpil2sr/Adobe%20XI%2011.0.21%20Crash.zip?dl=0

    Hi,
    We have fixed the issue. Kindly update to the latest version of Acrobat.
    Thank you for your patience.

  8. Turning Off Tab view breaks puggin Tools

    Tabbed View by default isn't suitable as documents are often compared visually & make better use of multiple screen space. However Turning Off Tabbed view now breaks (hides) 3rd Party Plugin tools (namely Enfocus Pitstop Pro).
    Because a restart is required to re-enable Tabbed viewing, that causes loss of changes, or having to save/discard multiple changes potentially on multiple documents.
    & Because I'm here.... NOT A SINGLE Feature added to Acrobat DC has been an improvement.

  11. Bug in coverting PDF to WORD on MAC - need your help

    This may be a bug. I use InDesign to create an very important annual booklet. I export it to PDF and then break it apart and convert to WORD so that I can send individual sections to contributors so they can make edits for new year's book. In April, I had no problems and I have done this for 8 years now. See attached. We received an update and now, as of July, when I convert the same document, the formatting is all messed up. For me to get a good version to my contributors it would take me hours…

  13. Review recognized text fails to fix ocr text and alters visible text

    There are several issues with the "Review recognized text" feature. It fails to update the ocr text when a correction is made. It replaces the selected visible characters with nonsense ones.
    After pressing the "close" button all of the recognized text becomes invisible.
    To see this problem open the attached file and open the "correct recognized text" feature. Select "Review recognized text" and double-click on the word "TRAINMASTER" in the upper left of the page. It will not allow you to manually correct this.

    I'm using Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise and Acrobat Pro DC version 15.17.20050.61080

    We already support this with the “Pinning of navigation pane” feature. i.e. to open any Navigation Pane by default for all the documents in the LHP.
    This is how you can try this out:

    1) Launch any PDF and Expand the Panel that you want the acrobat to open by default for every document(For Ex. Page Thumbnails)
    2) Right click on the LHP Navigation strip , Select the option from the context menu “Pin Page thumbnails” .
    3) now try out by launching any other pdf → You will observe that the Page thumbnails panel would appear expanded by default on launch (If document does not have any other document specific preference )

    This Feature is applicable to DC and Classic 2017 track (not available in Classic 2015)

    Thanks

  18. Reopen PDFs Launched in previous sessions on Opening Acrobat/Reader

    A Prereference in Acrobat should be there which loads the last session of opened tabs/pdfs on relaunching. Also could provide options to save/load previous sessions.
    This may be Important to the users who work on several pdfs at a time but wish to retain the opened docs in the next Acrobat session.
    Also Session could be managed to retain even after machine restart and then launching acrobat.
