  1. page controls

    Please make it possible in settings to PERMANENTLY hide page control from the document AND from the toolbar. I was able to get rid of them by selecting "hide page controls" after View, Show/Hide, Page Controls, but the controls appear again when I re-open Adobe. I know page controls can be switched from toolbar to document, and I know all the tool bars can be hidden. But I don't want to hide all the tools - I've customized the tool bar with the tools I use all the time. I just want to get rid of the page controls, which…

    Hi,

    We released an update for Adobe Acrobat DC that fixes this concern.
    So there is no further need of doing any workaround.

    This update will be automatically applied to all Acrobat and Reader users in the coming days. You may also update to the latest release by opening the application and going to Help > Check for Updates.
    You can also drop an Email to me at ajain@adobe.com to let me know further in this. Thanks.

  2. Keep added view columns in PDF Portfolio of emails converted to a PDF portfolio

    In Acrobat X one could add view columns, such as "to" and "folder" to a PDF Portfolio of emails, and save the portfolio to keep the added columns. When the portfolio was opened again the added view columns would still be there. Please add this feature to Acrobat Pro DC.

  4. Bug: missing menu accelerators for File and Edit in Japanese environments

    In Windows Japanese language environments, Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC don't have menu accelerators such as Alt+F and Alt+E for Edit, even though Alt+F, Alt+V and Alt+H work fine. See attached.
    I guess that their resource file may define menus like "ファイル", "編集", "表示(&V)", "ウィンドウ(&W)" and "ヘルプ(&H)". Fix first 2 of them like "ファイル(&F)" and "編集(&E)".
    I also guess these definitions are in ExLang32.JPN, but I'm not sure.
    I've observed this issue, most of Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC running on my Windows 7. I am confirming it with Acrobat Pro DC 2015.006.30413 today.

  5. Stop showing my name in the user interface

    I am so SICK of the brain dead idea that we need to have our names plastered all over everything in our user interfaces in case we forget who we are or, as somebody with an oversized paycheck and an undersized amount of common sense might put it, "to personalise the user experience".

    What it REALLY does is compromise our privacy. Constantly. We've working on a scree at lunch time or on a train? There's our name, for anyone to see. We take a screenshot? There's our name. It serves NO copnstructive purpose and it is ANNOYING.

    Yet there it…

  8. Disable Floating Icon

    Is there a way to disable the floating icon?
    The recent release introduced this feature. I don't find it useful at all, it always in my ways while I was doing the editing. It would be nice to be able to disable this feature.

  9. Action does not open from quick tools shortcut

    Action does not open from quick tools shortcut until the "Action Wizard" tool is opened. Previous versions openened the pinned action in the side panel without the need to then also open the "Action Wizard" tool. It makes a mockery of having shortcut of the action in the first place!

  11. Since Update 18.11.2003x - Cannot open PDF - asking for Password

    Multiple Users - Multiple PDF files. Mixed Windows 7 32/64bit and 10. All versions of Adobe Acrobat DC. Since the update 18.11.2003x when opening a PDF within IE it's asking for a password. Chrome is not an option.
    Our current workaround is removing all adobe apps and reinstalling before the update. Then disabling the auto update.
    Looking for long term solution.

    I am on Acrbat DC 2018.009.20044. There is addon for Firefox, name Adobe Acrobat 18.0.2. In the options of this add on we have "Allow Adobe Acrobat for Firefox to send anonymous usage information to Adobe for product improvement purposes". This option is not working and the stat is sending every time, doesn't matter if is on or off.

  15. Bug Report - Can't scroll to next page while in "Fill & Sign"

    Bug Report - Can't scroll to next page while in "Fill & Sign"

    It seems like the only way to move to the next page while using "Fill & Sign" is by clicking on the next page arrow at the bottom. This is too cumbersome, especially when you need move between pages to review the information while you are signing or adding initials to every page. It's MUCH easier to just scroll down, please change this so you are able to just scroll.

  16. Cut, copy and paste option to move pages within a pdf file

    It will be very useful to have a cut/copy and paste option for moving pages within a pdf file. Currently, you can only drag pages around and this can be a little bit messy especially if working on a large file.

  17. Bug in coverting PDF to WORD on MAC - need your help

    This may be a bug. I use InDesign to create an very important annual booklet. I export it to PDF and then break it apart and convert to WORD so that I can send individual sections to contributors so they can make edits for new year's book. In April, I had no problems and I have done this for 8 years now. See attached. We received an update and now, as of July, when I convert the same document, the formatting is all messed up. For me to get a good version to my contributors it would take me hours…

  19. Missing characters after conversion of Word document to PDF

    Exporting Word documents to PDF using Acrobat PDFMaker produces a PDF document with missing characters.

    This only occurs with some fonts, such as Palatino Linotype and Book Antiqua.

    Environment: Windows 10 1909 (18363.476) French, Microsoft Word 1910 (Build 12130.20390 Microsoft Store), Acrobat DC 2019-021-20056, Convert2AdobePDF 19.21.20047.354104, Adobe PDF Library 19.21.79.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:


    • Type "L'HOMME" in a Word document, font is Palatino Linotyoe,

    • Export said Word document with PDFMaker, with all fonts embedded.

    Expected result: PDF document displays "L'HOMME"

    Observed result: PDF document displays "L'OMME"

  20. Differentiate "Zoom to Page" and "Show Page Only" icons

    The icons for "Zoom to Page Level" and "Show only one page at a time" are nearly identical. What's worse, when I put both of them on my toolbar, Acrobat places them side-by-side, intentionally causing confusion..

    These commands do different things and need to be better differentiated in icon form.
