  2. Running Sierra 10.12.6. Acrobat pro won't open properly.

    Acrobat pro won't open properly on my iMac running Sierra 10.12.6.
    I can see it in the menu bar at the top of the screen, but it won't open any further than that.
    I have been able to click on file-open and managed to open a file, but none of the tool functions work.

    Apologies for the trouble, can you provide the Acrobat version you are using. Also please provide the following logs:

    “~/Library/Logs/Adobe/Acrobat Update Helper DC.log”

    “~/Library/Logs/Adobe/Acrobat Updater DC.log”

    “/Var/log/install.log”

  3. Some stamps disappear when you apply redactions

    Occasionally after defining text to be redacted and assigning a stamp notation beside it, when you apply the redaction some of the stamps disappear. It is not consistent and very random. It's not all the same stamp or in the same place on the page. They just don't all make it to the redacted version. Help!

  5. Vector Rasterise

    Rasterise all vectors option in the export PDF dialogue window.

    I use lots of detailed vector files in my layouts and when producing PDF's for approval this can be an issue as the files sizes can be too big to send back and forth over email. There are numerous work arounds but none really give a seamless document flow that should happen. Making a JPEG of my files and placing those instead of eps or ai files can be a headache also.

  6. The right panel could be hid in Adobe Acrobat XI that worked wonderfully well for me. Annoyingly, I can't seem to do so in the Pro 17!

    I want Adobe Acrobat Pro 17 to work at least half as well as Adobe Acrobat Pro XI that did the jobs I needed wonderfully well for me. I NEED TO CLOSE THE RIGHT PANEL JUST LIKE I COULD IN XI!!!!!!!!!!! i SEE OTHERS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT TOO. If something wasn't broke in older version why "fix it" with this one. It interferes with my ability to follow through on searched text and read same with the split screen capability Windows offers! PLEASE FIX IT SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Error in Adobe Acrobat DC Pro Installer

    I download the acrobatproDC_dlm disk image on my Macbook Pro running 10.12.5 using the Chrome browser.
    This download proceeds normally.

    After mounting the disk image and starting the installer app, it fails as 29% saying: "Safari must be closed in order to proceed". This comes up in a dialog box with Retry and Close buttons. Retry always fails with the same error message. Close, of course, closes the installer.

    The trouble is that Safari is not running!

    I finally figured out that Adobe Acrobat Reader DC was running and this was the cause of the installation failure.

    Please correct the…

  8. The document has been changed since it was created and use of extended features is no longer available

    I have filled up a form using Foxit Reader. When I tried to open the form with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC I got error "The document enabled extended features in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The document has been changed since it was created and use of extended features is no longer available. Please contact the author for the original version of this document".

    I tried some other PDF programs, no issue when opening this form.

  10. Add tutorial to add an index to a book. Your instructions for it are WAY TOO VAGUE.

    I have been trying to add an index for a 278 page book in PDF. I spent an hour on the phone to tech support in India and no one there seems to know how to do this.

    I also need to be able to VIEW it and install it into this PDF to publish it. PLEASE add a tutorial on how this is done, step by step, without CLOUDING the issue with terms like "catalog" and "metatdata" that do NOT contribute to the objective.

  13. Snapshot of PDF page for export to JPG has bugs

    If you open those files in Acrobat, and use the snapshot feature, then "control-a" to select everything, you will see differences in each one. In each case, on the right side, the app selects more than it should be selecting. For example, the sample with inset and color has a small band of white on the right side that is included in the selection that should not be. This was a bug in Acrobat 9. I was hoping to find this problem fixed in this version, but it is not. I only discovered this recently, because I started adding background…

  14. Does acrobat have access to my computer?

    Whenever I use acrobat, my mouse seems driven by commads - not mine - to do things in acraobat. Things like scrolling, moving mouse, opening other windows in acrobat. Is it a ghost or is it Adobe?

    Hi,

    I am afraid, Acrobat can not be responsible for this abrupt behavior. Please
    do a virus scan on your machine. Let us know if that helps.

    Thanks

  15. 3d connexion 3d mouse useability of zoom feature

    In previous versions of Adobe Acrobat / reader you could use a 3d mouse (3dconnexion) to zoom and navigate a document. This is very helpful on larger drawing type documents where you want to move around and zoom in. I noticed that the 3d mouse does work to scroll up and down a text type document. Are there any plans to integrate zoom and pan features?

    Choose View > Zoom > Pan & Zoom, or click the Pan & Zoom tool in the Select and Zoom toolbar.

    Do any of the following:
    1.Drag the handles of the box in the Pan & Zoom window to change the document magnification.

    2.Drag the center of the box to pan across the area you want to see.

    3.Click the navigation buttons to move to a different page.

    4.Enter a value in the zoom text box, or click the plus or minus buttons to increase or decrease the magnification by preset levels.

  16. A document where images cannot be screenshot to be searched for on google images or way to alter our images so same images don't come up

    I need to be able to create a document where the images we include can not be screenshot and the searched for in google image search (thus enabling the person I am sending the PDF to to go to competitor websites who have the same images as us). So either no screenshot allowed or the ability to change the images we have sufficiently that google image will not find it.

  19. Bug on Redacted Information

    I have received a redacted contract on Adobe Acrobat Standard DC that I use on Windows 7. When I hold down ctrl and scroll in (to zoom) the redacted information flashes and I can see what information is blacked out. I think the information should be securely blacked out so there is no possibility of obtaining that information.
