  2. Stop refreshing the page thumbnails

    When I have the Page Thumbnails sidebar open and I switch between different open PDFs Acrobat refreshes the whole thing, including all the pages which can be slow and locks-up the whole UI. Why can't it cache the thumbnails when I switch between documents? It becomes very painful if I have a long PDF with 100+ pages in.

  4. Stop redirecting my questions from my issue like a webcam dating *****. I don't know what version I'm in!

    My screenplay is now out of screenplay alignment because the editing boxes are not individually packaged and precise. I may be able to fix it NOW with this version!

  5. Canned Responses

    Could Adobe add a tool for users to create, organize, and use precreated responses to common problems or questions? As a writing instructor, I would find this tool invaluable, as I respond to common problems in student writing. I expect other professionals who encounter situation where they offer similar responses to multiple documents would benefit from this tool. Thank you for considering this request.

  6. Blur/Redact sections of a document until a password is entered to reveal detail.

    Rather than restricting the entire document with a password, for documents published to large audiences but only some need to see specific details, allow a blurred box to be included on sections of a document that can be removed if someone enters the password specifically in that section while reviewing the document.

    This would be page-specific security, not document level security. Useful on large reports that cover many areas that are distributed on different level of an organization.

  7. Bad Sequence of Events when Scanning

    I scanned a document into Acrobat Pro to create a PDF. I then mailed the original document to the destination. Acrobat then forced me to sign-in & the document scan was gone. If you are going to force a user to sign-in, consider doing so before you let them use the tools.

  8. Conditional Formatting for Text Boxes & Comments

    I have real estate projects that have multiple buildings on a map that get released for sale on a regular basis. I would love to have the ability to have the text box, or callout box, arrows, lines, etc. to change color based on status. For instance, I write "STARTED" in my text box and the box, text, and arrows attached to that text box turn Green. I write "FUTURE" and it turns Red.This way I can replace the underlying map, and color code the comments automatically based on criteria I select.

  9. PDF created with Adobe Pro and password protected won't open with browser. Gives 'incorrect password' message. Password works fine on mac

    I have a pdf document, password protected, works fine. Password is fine, document opens on my desktop mac or any operating system. However, when I upload the document to our website: japanstudy.earlham.edu (Enrollment Procedures - 2018-19 Handbook), I receive this error message. Attached is the screenshot of the error. I cannot fix this, no matter if I change the password or try a variety of settings.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. Kindly share with us your machine details and Acrobat version.
    Also are you facing this issue with a particular document.

  11. Acrobat DC is disabling the lights when vertex colors are used in the U3D input file, is there any way to overcome this?

    I have created a U3D file with a mesh and vertex colors. I have created a PDF file using the Latex tool.
    When opening the PDF file in Acrobat DC, I see that the lightning is disabled. This does not happen when the U3D file uses material colors instead of vertex colors.

    You can use the following steps to
    > Right Click on the Tools bar and select "Customize Quick Tools.
    >Navigate to “Prepare Form” > More Form Options
    > Click on the “Add to toolbar” button.
    > Click Save.

    You should now have the “Merge Data into Spreadsheet” as a drop down options now.

    I hope this helps

  15. Super slow switching between text annotation tools on macOS

    The simple highlight text, underline and other markup tools take seconds to switch between. Do you mine bitcoin in between switching? :–) Also see requests "An Urgent Need for Better and Bolder Annotation Tools" and "Make it possible to copy highlighted text". You seem to answer only to selected comments. I enjoyed much better reception with my requests for bugs on the iPad app.

  16. Save InDesign to PDF and convert WORD loses formatting. Was fixed in Sept 2017, now wrong again

    I have reported this three times previously. I work on a MAC. I use InDesign for an important booklet. I have to save it as PDF and then convert it to WORD so that I can split the booklet into sections and email to my other collaborators for editing. In the past, the WORD file comes over with perfect formatting. Then in 2017, it was turning all the formatting into garbage and Adobe fixed it in Sept 2017. Somewhere between the update of March and April 2018, the fix was overwritten and is back to being garbage. I have to…

  17. Release the full version of Acrobat DC 18.011.20040 to Creative Cloud Packager

    Why hasn't the full version of Acrobat DC 18.011.20040 been released to Creative Cloud Packager yet? The update package was released on May 14th (over two weeks ago as of writing this) and it contains security updates but we're still waiting on the full version.
