  3. Please fix this annoying bug

    I constantly get the attached error message/demand for "confidential information" both from the browser plug-in and from Acrobat, proper. Selecting "Always Allow" does not provide a lasting fix, only a temporary salve that work for a short period that somewhat, but not exactly, coincides with a particular Acrobat or browser session.

  4. Create a default selection for "Pages to Print" selections: ie "Current page"

    In my process of lien searches when I scan the completed documents, to prepare for the return e-mail to the customer, it is easier to scan all 20 - 40 items at the same time. Then I select each customer's document from the multiple scan and label the new pdf with the customer's name and search #. It would be expeditious to be able to have the "Current Page" selected without having to return the mouse to select it for each new pfd.

  7. Print copies resets to 1 and collate is hard to find

    If I select multiple copies and check the two-sided print option and go back to print, it resets the copies to 1.
    Also, the collate option was hard to find being hidden until you select more than 1 copy.

  9. Bug - long dynamically-generated multi-item dropdown field list doesn't scroll the whole way

    Hello,

    In the attached file

    -Select a grade under Grade Level
    -Open up the standards selections under "I am going to learn" under any of the lessons
    -Use the scroll bar to scroll down as far as you can

    I'm developing the document on a Mac OS X system but I have also repro'd the issue on a Windows system.

    Expected Behavior
    I expected the scrolling to go all the way down to the last item on the list.

    Observed behavior
    The scroll only lets you go partway down the list. You can use the arrow keys to continue down…

    As a workaround, please try the following
    1. Deactivate “Show field preview when editing or adding fields” in the Fields tab of the Preferences

    2. Switch off JavaScript while you work

    3. Please update Acrobat to the latest patch and check if that resolves the issue. Launch Acrobat > click “check for updates” under Help menu.
    Let us know how it goes.

  14. Allow Javascript buttons and menu items to be added in WebView (viewing a pdf from internet explorer)

    It would be greatly appreciated if custom buttons or menu items created in JavaScript be allowed to be added to the toolbars in WebView (Internet Explorer). This used to work in Acrobat and Reader in version 7, 8, 9 and X but now doesn't work :(

  15. Keyboard command to APPLY a stamp to a page

    Be inability to stamp a sheet with a keyboard command is mind-boggling.I know I can select the stamps options menu with Command K but from there that is no way with the keyboard to apply the stamp to a page. This dramatically lengthens my workflow when having to apply stamps to multiple sheets in the document.

  18. Combining files

    As a new user of Acrobat DC, I combine 2 files and save the portfolio. When I open up my new combined file there is a column panel on the left that shows the 2 documents that I combined. I cannot scroll through my new combined document from page 1 to the end. Rather, I must use arrows to toggle between my 2 documents. What am I missing to see it as one new combined document? Thanks.

  19. Read Out Loud

    Currently Acrobat Pro DC can not read slower than 150 words per minute (wpm). I chatted with support (January 30, 2018) and they confirmed that currently it can not be reduced. Therefore, I request that this be modified to any number that a subscriber wants. 150 WPM is ridiculously fast. The range is 150 to 650 wpm. I would hope that Adobe does not discriminate against persons with disabilities anywhere especially in the United States of America.

    Every time I open a pdf from an email, it automatically saves it to the desktop. I then have to delete them and it is difficult finding the latest file...that I didn't want to save in the first place. I want to choose when to save a file.
