  1. Create Multiple Radio buttons for each group

    Under the prepare form function, users should be allowed to create multiple radio buttons with a single function rather than creating one radio button at a time for each group. Say I have 100 questions and each question has 4 choices meaning it has 4 radio buttons, that is 400 radio buttons that i have to manually create. It is tedious and painful. There has to be a faster way to do this.

    This should also provide an option whether the layout of the radio buttons is vertical or horizontal.

  2. keeps shutting down

    Adobe DC keeps shutting down when I try to modify a document. Why am I paying for something I can't use?

  3. Cropping multiple files with action wizard causes crash

    I set up a simple action to crop files to some specific measurements. These are magazine pages, so all need the same crop. The action wizard manages about 10 files and then crashes. When it crashes it corrupts the file it was currently working on, so I have to generate that one again for the next attempt. As our magazine has up to 600 pages, this is a huge problem. It seems to happen every time I try. I am on a Mac running the latest Mojave version.

  4. "Ignore Future Errors" checkbox is Ignored on Acrobat Pro DC 2019.010.20091 on Mac

    I attempted to run the "Recognize Text In This File" command on a file with digital signatures and received a random "This operation is not permitted" error (see screenshot) which may in itself be a bug. But then I checked "Ignore future errors in this document" and hit OK, and received the same popup, with the "Ignore future errors" box checked, for each subsequent error in the document until it reached the last page. I thought this was strange.

  5. Singe page view, horizontal swipe to "flip" pages

    Drawboard PDF's single page view allows one to swipe through pages (like "flipping" pages in a book). I find this helps with retention as it breaks apart the text, delineated by page breaks. I've tried your single page vertical scrolling view, but I found it to be clunky. A few things that would probably make this better (for the horizontal swipe as well):


    1. Don't have the page "glued" to the screen, but put it on a rubber band -- so, as someone "drags" the page, you can see it react/ shift from the center/ default position. If the user just…

  6. Can't select a text annotation - Acrobat Pro 2017

    In Acrobat X a text annotation (created with the Typewriter tool) could easily be selected by merely clicking on it. In Acrobat Pro 2017 there seems to be no way to select it. This is a real show stopper for me since I often need to delete or copy/paste a group of selected line, text, and other annotations.

  8. Repeats automatic update when I try to open a PDF

    Today Acrobat automatically updated when I opened a PDF. Now, every time I try to open another PDF, it starts the automatic update process again. How can I stop this?

    It seems to me this is a bug.

    Thanks, A. F. Calhoun

  11. Adobe Acrobat DC enoding

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am French fund of literature and work for editors in particular in view of publications of translations from Indian literature into French.

    I am thus using most programs of the Adobe Creative Suite, because I also manage a Web site devoted to the promotion of Indian literature to French-speaking people (www.chatranjali.fr).

    The purpose of my request is the following:
    I gather PDF documents from either Indian sites, or Indian writers or their agents. They are thus written in one of the numerous languages and scripts used in the Indian subcontinent: devanagari mainly, but…

  12. Cannot edit PDF after entering password

    Acrobat DC, Windows
    If I open a PDF which I protected myself with a password and I enter the password to temporarily disable the protection, I should be able to edit the PDF the way I want, but I'm not. I cannot mark, not draw anything. I'm forced to save an unprotected copy. This is paradox and stupid!

  14. Please please please make Overprint Preview a default!

    As the world continues to use PDFs for EVERYthing, it is so so important that people are aware of Overprint Preview. However, most people don't know it even exists in their page display preferenc. If you don't have this turned on things that are set to overprint will show as if they are not overprinting (mostly on the customer's end). Because the default of Acrobat is not to have Overprint Preview turned on, customers don't realize the problem. In the printing industry this is one of the biggest stumbling stones (boulders) we come across. That and fonts, of course.

  16. Why can't i find any real help?

    Why can't i talk to an expert about the issues I'm having? All the tutorials are much too basic and scrolling through all the reams of posts is exhausting and never results in an answer. I need advice on how to save a pdf. file with radio buttons and fillable sections so i can send it to a client for completion. Why is there no detailed best practice on how to use pre-flight so that forms work for your clients?

  17. insert a pdf page of file

    Acrobat Pro 9 allowed me to add a pdf page or file by going to Documents/Insert page

    With Acrobat DC, I don't see this feature; the closest I have come is to merge files, which is more troublesome and creates a new file that I then have to rename

  18. Edit fill and stroke in Form fields

    I can't find a way to make a permanent change to appearance of form fields. It will keep having the blue color on top at the end user. In the properties panel it is shown as no fill and stroke. I can see a lot of people asking for this feature - but no solution yet. See https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2467569

  19. Unable to uncheck headers and footers option after comparing two pdfs.

    This is not an idea. I am not able to uncheck headers and footers option after comparing two pdfs. Because of this I'll have to go through obvious header and footer changes, which is a waste of time.
