  2. Cannot hide junky tool pane in DC pro

    Every time Pro starts I have to press Shift-F4 before I do anything else.

    Maybe someone has some javascript that can be used at startup to close the pane automatically?

  4. Bug Report - Cannot access Document Cloud Despite being "signed in"

    I am signed in and I also tried to do a repair. I cannot get into the document cloud as it says to sign in. The sign in button does not work. The menu sign in/sign out shows I am signed in. Nothing is working and I could really use these documents now.

  7. File remains open behind the scene even when tab closed

    This is a recurring problem with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC: When a file is closed in Acrobat (by closing the corresponding tab), the program doesn't not release the file. As a result, the file cannot be renamed or moved until Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is closed. I have attached an image of the error dialog that pops up. This is on Windows.

    Of course, this is a major inconvenience because I have many tabs open and closing Adobe merely to be able to rename a file that's no longer supposed to be open in Adobe is not something that enhances…

    The error here explains that the PDF is opened in Adobe PRO.

    This could be because the file is still writing the changes made in the PDF.

    Could be that the file is opened from a server location/shared servers. And that the change is waiting to commit.

  8. Filter comments by color

    In a previous version of Acrobat (I believe it was version 9) it was possible to filter comments by color. Please bring back this feature, it was one of the most useful features of Adobe Acrobat. As a technical author, I need to add lots of different comments that are directed to different people. Some are only relevant for the illustrators, some for the developers, others for fellow writers, etc.
    Sometimes I also categorize the status of comments by color. E. g.:
    - green --> done
    - orange --> needs some clarification
    - red --> can't/won't be done

    Without the…

  9. How to modify or hide adobe acrobat DC properties

    I would like to know how to delete or hide properties in Acrobat Pro DC? For example, the dates modified, the created, and the edit time. This would be great for documents that are reused over the course of time.

  10. Combine Emails and Attachments

    I'd love for Adobe to add support for combining and convert email attachments. We use Adobe Acrobat for bulk printing, and it would be wonderful if we could load email messages (.msg) files in the combine files to Adobe box, and then print them.

    Hi

    This is already present in Acrobat – Combine menu.
    1. click on File>Create > Combine Files into Single PDF.
    2. Click on Add Files dropdown and select Add Email.

    Alternatively, you can drag and drop emails on Acrobat’s combine window.

    Thanks

  11. Need to go back

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is way too cumbersome. The old Acrobat Pro 9 was much more user friendly. Too much time is spent trying to find out how to work with this version.

  12. Paper Capture Recognition service experienced an error

    Yesterday I purchased 1 year subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro and since installation I am unable to edit PDFs due to the following pop-up error message:
    "Unable to process the page because the Paper Capture recognition service experienced an error. (6)".
    I have searched all over the internet for its solution but could not find one. This is really frustrating, bought an annual subscription and still not able to edit PDFs. I feel that I have wasted my money in buying the subscription.

  13. Enhance multiple files at the same time


    1. Enhance multiple files at one time

    2. Add the add files/folders option to select multiple files to enhance the same way I can do so when recognizing text

    3. Saves time - since this option will add OCR it will deskew the pages at the same time

  15. Ability to set defaults for: Thumbnail size, Thumbnail pane width, and thumbnail size

    When creating or opening a new PDF, I always want my thumbnails to be displayed with 2 columns by default. ATM this involves manually stretching the pane over every time and is very time consuming.

    If we could set the default pane width, thumbnail size, and # of columns it would really streamline my workflow.

  16. Append all links in document

    Provide the ability to append all the links and view all links in a pdf document without going page by page. Creating PDFs from a web page using multiple levels is not an option for many websites, and appending page by page is ridiculously time consuming.

  19. Password removal possibility to be introduced

    Hi, Once a receiver has opened a password protected file, it should be possible to remove the password if one wants. I am too sick of this.
    As an example, I get monthly bill from the Mobile operators for just few dollars. The bill needs to be uploaded for claim. Currently I have to take the print the PW protected file first, then scan the printed copy and save it and then again upload it
