  1. Auto retention of hyperlinks from an excel do to a PDF

    hello,
    I would like to make PDF docs from excel docs that contain hyperlinks in which the hyperlinks are automatically maintained within the PDF instead of having to manually add then back in after making the PDF.
    thank you, Jason

  4. move file to dialog, is not showing my other folders besides the scan folder

    I have a couple folders setup on my document cloud. Total of 3. Scans, Personal, Work.

    On Acrobat DC Pro, the move file dialog only lists my scan folder, no options to move back a directory.. (Bad)
    On Acrobat WEB interface,the move file dialog lists all 3 folders. (Good)
    On Acrobat Mobile interface, the move file dialog allows me to move back a directory to select my other folders. (OK)

    *This is when trying to move a document from my scans folder to another location.

  5. No longer able to email a document as an attachment

    I seem to be unable to share a document in an email as an attachment, only as a link. This is very frustrating for people receiving. Can it please be set up so that they have the document as an attachment as well?

  7. Password Requests

    I very strongly dislike the fact that I have to enter my password just to view an Adobe document. It is highly annoying.

  8. BUG: "hidden" property of form field

    When creating a form field in an editable PDF, applying the "hidden" property for the field renders it uneditable, not invisible. I've created several forms, and just recently had this happen, and all of my other previously created forms that have hidden fields are now opening with visible fields.

  9. Be able to adjust width of Tools Pane by selecting the frame and moving it left or right. (Acrobat Standard DC 20.006.20034)

    Most GUI based applications allow the end user to adjust width of a page by grabbing the frame and moving it left or right.

    In my specific case, I am editing forms and the Tools pane shows the field names, which is nice, but I have to scroll the window to read the full names. There is a scroll bar on the bottom but this reduces the utility of the feature.

  10. Put dates on these requests and the responses so people can understand when they were done?

    I would imagine that at least some of these have been actioned and could be removed?

  11. no reason to change the layout. frustrating and a waste of time.

    the edit tools are different. we use these in our business and expect them to look a certain way. there is no reason to have moved the icons OR the look of edits. not happy!

  12. save and save as function

    save and save not working

    File >save > and you get a empty window with no function or options.

    when you try to use the save or save as function from the menu you have an empty window with no functions or options so you cannot save. I trick the system by doing a reduce file.... Mac OS Mojave 10.14.06 it is annoying.

    It would be great if the editing part of Adobe would give you the ability to choose different color highlighters.

  15. Can no longer compare two different PDF documents on different screens

    The new update is a major down grade because all PDFs open in the same display. I have the need to view two different PDF documents on different screens, but Adobe does not support this activity in the currently configured system.

  19. Acrobat DC features inferior to Acrobat Pro, Acrobat 11 and every previous version

    I could've chosen several categories, creating, PDFs, editing PDFs, viewing PDFs, every feature of Acrobat DC is inferior to 11 and frankly all previous versions of Acrobat Pro. As a publisher who has used Acrobat Pro every day, all day for well over a decade, I am so disappointed and frustrated with this version, It is dumbed down and has several serious bugs that cause issues during a document publishing process. Please scrap this version and bring back Acrobat 11 which functioned 100% better than DC.

  20. Adobe Protect Security Features are Disabled when opening with Chrome PDF Viewer

    When implementing all Adobe/Protect security features to prevent printing, copying, or editing a secured pdf, the PDF can still be edited, copied or printed when opened by the Chrome Document Previewer. With the print option reenabled in the previewer, you can print the secured document as a PDF and save to a file directory and upon opening the saved copy, all security policies have been removed. After discovering this, I researched to see if there was an oversight on my part and stumbled across an article on WikiHow titled, "How to Unlock a Secure PDF File" which outlines a similar…
