  1. Redaction options are missing in 19.8.20071

    Build 19.8.20071 has completely removed the redaction pop-up menu to "repeat mark across pages", "apply redactions", and to choose from the user-defined code set. The only way to apply redaction codes is to manually go into the properties menu on each and every redaction to apply the redaction code.

  2. Acrobat deleted form fields from reading order when moved even one pixel

    I am using the latest version of Mac Acrobat DC 2018.011.20038

    1- Make a form field.
    2- Select it so you can make a <form> with the OBJR
    3- Drag it into its proper spot in the reading order.
    4- Then move it even one pixel, it will delete itself. This happens on all fields of any type. It also happens if you just resize any field.

    Since this Adobe Forum usually asks questions until people give up on the thread I even made a video of the whole thing:

  4. Support for Microsoft Azure Information Protection in Pro and Reader

    We really need this feature enabled or we will have to change our PDF software to one of these products. GDPR is forcing our hand on this.

  5. Bug report: After update 18.011.20035/15.006.30143 Password Required to open form

    Acrobat DC Continuous 2018.011.20035
    Windows 10 64 bits
    Acrobat DC Classic 2015.006.20143

    Unable to open our standard time sheet, which is a .pdf form, and has been in use for years.
    Form opens as usual on computers that have not received the recent update.
    When we try to open the form after the Acrobat update, form requires password to open ('std634.pdf' is protected. Please enter a Document Open Password.)

  6. Mac Acrobat DC Does Not Create PDF from Excel

    When I drag an excel file to the Adobe dock icon or attempt to create a PDF in Acrobat I get an error of a duplicate file in the temp folder.

    I've tried clearing out the temp folder. Also, I've reinstalled Acrobat and Microsoft office. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  7. Accessibility Checker

    With Accessibility Checker, I think there is a bug - the title was flagged as an issue. I took all the steps to correct this but it continues to come up as an issue when I use the checker. I've recreated the issue twice. I'm on a Mac, OS Sierra v10.12, MS Word v15.38, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Thank you.

  8. Crash when using "Convert Colors"

    This problem has been happening since the 2017 updates. Yesterday I did a clean install of Windows 10 for another issue, and the problem persists even after re-installing Windows and CC.

    Steps:
    1. Open a PDF file.
    2. Open "Print Production" -> "Convert Colors"
    3. Under "Matching Criteria" select "Color Type -> Spot Colors"
    4. Click "OK"

    Then Acrobat Crashes for me every time, on every PDF file I try.

    I use this feature a lot because our equipment is CMYK Digital, and we often get files with Spot Colors submitted for printing.

    I am assuming this is a but…

    Thanks

  9. Opacity

    Since updating to High Sierra, I have been unable to adjust the color opacity when filling in color for text/form boxes. The "Colors" box used to have something at the bottom for adjusting the opacity, and, since the opacity is turned all the way up by default, I have no way of actually filling in these boxes with color.

  11. Saving hanging

    I and several of my coworkers are having Adobe Acrobat DC hang on us while saving files. It can be while just normal save (Command-C) or when doing a Save As.... Apparently the file gets fully saved, because when we reopen Acrobat after a force quit, and say No to recover, the file seems fine. But Acrobat will hang or freeze, the progress bar stays up, and eventually the OS says Acrobat is unresponsive. We need to force quit it to get back to restart Acrobat. Trashing preferences or changing where we save the file (resident drive or server) makes…

  12. DC 2017.012.20095 cannot delete page 1 of certain files

    When we open certain PDF documents and go to organise pages we cannot delete page 1. (This affects other functions that try to delete pages too). Please contact me if more files are needed.

    The error is "One or more pages are in use and cannot be deleted".

  14. All PDF document pages renamed after a "save as under -> lighter PDF"

    Pages renamed after exporting it using Acrobat fonction: save as under -> lighter PDF (see example attached,).
    The PDF is initilaly generated by InDesign and is perfect (just a bit too heavy for web diffusion purpose), the problem comes afterwood in Acrobat.

  15. Modify all bookmarks at once

    When using the "Combine Files" tool, we should be able to modify all bookmarks at once, without changing the destination of the bookmarks. For example when navigating the pages using the bookmarks, the files will open in a "Fit Width" view, unless individually modified to use "Fit Page."

    I would like all documents to be viewed at "Fit Page" when using the bookmarks after combining the files, but I can only modify them individually, which is very tedious.

    Hi,

    We are delighted to share with you that Acrobat and Reader Desktop release for DC Continuous (20.012.20041) is Live now and this takes care of this Feature Request

    For more Info refer here : https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/whats-new.html

    The Set Default Bookmark Zoom Level menu item is now added to the PDF bookmark options. While creating a new bookmark, you can easily use this option to set the default zoom level. By default, the Inherit Zoom option is selected.

    Also, Acrobat now provides an option in the bookmark properties to retain the destination page number when you adjust the zoom level of multiple bookmarks.

    Please update your Acrobat (It should Auto update or you should do Help → Check for updates) and let us know your Feedback.

    Thanks
    Ayush Jain

  16. Sharing window/pop-up in swedish is confusing

    Swedish: When sharing a file from Acrobat and tries to leave you will be presented with a pop-up that gives you confusing alternatives.
    If you press "Ignorera" (Ignore) the sharing ends but if you press "Avbryt" (Cancel) the sharing continues. Highly confusing. "Avbryt" should be "Avbryt" (cancel this operation) and "Ignorera" should be "fortsätt ladda upp" (continue to upload).

  18. Copy & Paste

    Each Windows program can copy, cut and paste pages from thumbnail view - within a document. Only Adobe not! Adobe uses the mouse for that! Why? Please activate copy & paste again!

  19. Copy paste OR duplicate a page in thumbnail view

    Should have an option to enable the user to copy paste or duplicate a page in thumbnail view. For example, I make a blank pg in a pdf file which I should be able to copy-paste/duplicate, as a blank page, in between the desired pages of the pdf.

  20. Adobe Acrobat 2017 Pro - Creating and Editing a Portfolio

    Need a new layout for Adobe Portfolio Documents. In Adobe Pro XI there was a grid view layout that was much easier to use and manipulate documents within the portfolio. A new version of a product should have new and better features not less. Why would you not be able to edit the order of documents in a portfolio by dragging and dropping. What you used to be able to accomplish in 2 steps takes about 5.
