  3. Google Drive

    Google Drive should be accessible from Adobe and all of its products. I'm sure you've heard of Google. Many people are using it. Otherwise, your product is significantly less helpful.

  6. E-signed PDF Files Became Password Locked Unintentionally

    At the time I got e-signed PDF files from our business partner I could open the files. However suddenly the files got password locked although nobody didn't make password lock on the file.

    This phenomena happens under specific environments and not happens under another specific environments I write following.

    As additional information, I indexed PDF files including above files. Nevertheless almost all of indexed PDF files haven't gotten password locked, so that I cannot attribute the reason of unintentional password lock to indexing.

  8. Page Thumbnails

    In the page thumbnail area in Adobe it would be nice to be able to jump a page from its current location to the front or end of a document. Also, it would be nice to be able to copy paste a page in this area as well.

    Thank you.

    Acrobat Customization Tool > Online Services and Features > Third-party connectors. The only option is to disable or enable all third party connectors. You should add the option to select which third party connectors are enabled. We would like to use OneDrive only but unfortunately, this also allows Dropbox and Box.

  11. Bug: Unable to set stroke/fill for form objects

    Many months since Mac OS High Sierra was available in public beta, and well over a month since release, there still exists a bug that prevents the setting of stroke and fill for form objects. For the millions of Acrobat users that regularly create forms in Acrobat, this is a very serious bug that should have been fixed long ago.

  12. pdfmaker does not render

    Following a recent upgrade to DC from XI, I have an issue with images in .docx files not being rendered by PDFMaker.

    Attached is a sample source file together with output from the Adobe PDF driver and from PDFMaker.

    The issue may be triggered by the insertion format of the image: the workaround is copy it out to an image editor then paste back as DIB.

    Note that this is definitely a regression from the XI PDFMaker which performed fine on the same files only a couple of months ago.

    PS Why on earth does PDFMaker not use the same…

  13. Acrobat Pro DC - Prepare Form - Add An Image Field doesn't work in CC 2018

    OS: 10.13.1 & Acrobat Pro DC 17.12.20098.240878

    When building a form for a client, I use the "Add An Image Field". This field stopped working properly after I updated OS and to CC 2018. Now when the client tries to add a photo, everything works as expected through the photo upload process, but the photo will not display in the photo's form field after they click the "OK" button after browsing for and uploading the photo.

    The options for the button are "Label only", "Invert", State: Up. These are the default settings for the Image field.

    I was able to…

  15. Acrobat XI Pro crashes in some forms after update to 11.0.21

    After updating Acrobat XI Pro to 11.0.21, a form that previously worked now crashes when undertaking different actions. The same form works in Acrobat XI Pro 11.0.20, and the latest version of Acrobat DC Pro (as at 08/18/2017. The crashes occur when selecting an item from a drop-down list [the crash occurs at a point in the script where a rawValue is extracted from a checkbox, i.e. Page.SubForm.Checkbox.rawValue; however, even creating a variable referencing the Page, i.e. var page1 = Page; appears to create the error.] It also crashes when closing a page, event.target.closeDoc(true).

  16. Review recognized text fails to fix ocr text and alters visible text

    There are several issues with the "Review recognized text" feature. It fails to update the ocr text when a correction is made. It replaces the selected visible characters with nonsense ones.
    After pressing the "close" button all of the recognized text becomes invisible.
    To see this problem open the attached file and open the "correct recognized text" feature. Select "Review recognized text" and double-click on the word "TRAINMASTER" in the upper left of the page. It will not allow you to manually correct this.

    I'm using Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise and Acrobat Pro DC version 15.17.20050.61080

  18. Loupe Window Persistence

    I use the loupe tool very frequently, and I would like to have the software remember the size/location/magnification of the last usage for the loupe window, even after completely exiting the program and starting a new session. It is irritating to be forced to resize and relocate this window every time I wish to use the loupe tool (the magnification does persist).

           If I keep at least one PDF file open, then the size/location of the window is remembered.  However, once I close Acrobat Pro DC completely, the loupe window reverts to its default size/location.

  19. Update from 11.0.19 to 11.0.20 corrupts registry key

    As has been reported here and elsewhere repeatedly, installing updates to Adobe Pro corrupts a registry key. Every time an Adobe Acrobat update is applied, the DDE connection from applications to the Acrobat server is broken. The patch installation erroneously changes the following entry to "AcroViewA10".

    [HKEYCLASSESROOT\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application]
    @="AcroViewA11"
