  1. PLEASE MAKE ACROBAT PDF MAKER AVAILABLE IN WORD ON THE MAC!!!

    Hello,

    I need PDFMaker to create accessible pdfs in Word. Maker is suggested to meet WCAG 2.0 requirements.

    I'm very surprised that Adobe has not made Maker available on the mac as MOST DESIGNERS USE MACS! Adobe is the gold standard in the design world. (Although I don't usually work in Word, these are the files my client has given me.)

    Luckily I have a Windows laptop so I can get my work done.

    Thank you,
    Erica Cetin

  2. Rotating an item from Page Thumbnails doesn't always match the actual page

    Items rotated don't reflect that they're in portrait mode in the Page Thumbnails viewer (all of the time, anyway)

  3. [Bug] Horizontal/vertical lines sometimes do not change color when text color is changed

    Reproduction: Open the "woodruffsvm" file or the "variance_reduction-saddle" file I attached, change text color to white.

    Environment: MacOS Big Sur, Adobe Acrobat DC

    Expected Result: the horizontal/vertical lines coming from fraction bars, square root signs, and tables should be changed to white as well

    Observed Result: these lines remained black

    This seems to happen for some pdfs and not others; for example, in the "unified" pdf I attach, the fraction bars and table lines are properly changed.

  4. Adobe Acrobat Pro 2020 Mac installation fails at Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6

    It is not possible to install the new Adobe Acrobat Pro 2020 for mac at Mac OS Sierra Version 10.12.6. on a MacBook Pro from 2017

    What should one do in this situation?
    * Install any possible Mac OS Update? (Hard change just motivated by one failure at Acrobat) at which Mac OS Version does Acrobat Pro secure work?
    * Claim the sold (Not Cheap) Software package and use alternative product for macbook?

    Please help fast because reclamation time is going away.
    Thanks a lot!

  5. Bring back the HUD color picker shortcut in Photoshop

    When using a painting tool, I use the display the HUD (Heads-Up-Display) color picker shortcut on the Mac, (hold Control+Option+Command then click right-click). It's heavily integrated into my process as a digital painter. Please reconsider bringing this shortcut back to the newest versions of Photoshop.

  8. Accessibility Check Alt Text suggestion

    When I use Accessibility Check, the document is scanned for shapes that need Alt Text. The algorithm is too sensitive. It picks up small things like bullets, hole punches, lines from shadows and a lot of stuff that winds up being marked as "decorative" that really don't need any alt text. It would be great of the algorithm were tweaked just a bit so that it figures out the area of each shape and if the area doesn't meet a minimum threshold, the algorithm doesn't flag it as needing alt-text. Perhaps a setting would let the user set the threshold,…

    Hi,
    The suggestion provided by you has been shared to the higher management. Unfortunately, no threshold can be set for the images we are checking the pdfs as per the standards. We have set them as decorative or provide an Alt text to define them.

    Feel free to contact us in case of any issue.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  10. Gray boxes adjacent to text and images after conversion from Word

    I converted Word 2013 file to PDF by using Save As PDF in Word. The entire file displayed large, light gray rectangles adjacent to the text on each page. (See attached image.) The solution to remove those rectangles was to delete comments that appeared in the Word document and save it as a PDF, again. There was only one comment in the Word file that got there by accident, but it caused hours of frustration for me. Once it was removed, the conversion worked like a charm.

    To remove comments, in Word, go to Review, Delete Comments.

  11. PDFMaker Add-in causes Title: Failed error from MS Word 2016

    An accessible MS Word 2016 docx, saved as a PDF with the Adobe PDFMaker Add-in enabled, creates a PDF when Accessibility Checked with Acrobat Pro 2017 results in a Title: Failed error. The same MS Word PDF created after disabling the PDFMaker Com Add-in no longer results in the Title:Failed error.

    The Title: Failed error caused by PDFMaker is easily corrected by clicking "Fix it" in acrobat pro, but the document already has a title and this step should not be necessary. It's better to disable PDFMaker which is installed as part of Acrobat Pro 2017.

    Please fix PDFMaker.

  12. When you convert a Microsoft

    There is a glitch with Adobe PDF. When you covert a Microsoft Word document to an Adobe PDF, some pilcrows (¶) are changed while some are not in the same document. Some pilcrows have a curved bottom. Additionally, all superscript characters become subscript. So all in-text citations with a superscript number and all superscript th and nd, etc., such as in 4th, 2nd, etc., become subscript. It also depends on how you open the file. On Adobe Cloud, the pilcrow problem doesn't happen, but the other one does. On Instructure Canvas opening my PDF files, both problems are present.

  13. barra di spazio per confermare

    ciao
    nelle versioni precedenti di acrobat, quando c'era una finestra con due scelte, tipo quando si vuole sostituire un file, annulla è in blu e premendo invio si annullava, mentre sostituisci, se nelle preferenze di osx è stato scelto su accesso completo di spuntare tutti i controlli, ha un contorno azzurro, premendo la barra di spazio si sostiutiva.
    la nostra versione è 2020.006.20042
    è possibile ripristinare questa opzione che rendeva il lavoro molto più veloce, per cortesia?

  15. Bug: Autotag distorts page and reorders images

    Start with a PDF with scanned image(s) and some transparent text, then do Autotag. The Autoag seems to change the Z order of the images and the page now looks distorted.

    Hi,
    They looked into this and it seems that there is some issue in the pdf itself. We have been working to make a better experience for our customers.
    For now, We have kept this feature in our radar and will be looking into similar documents.

    Please update to the latest versions to experience the latest features.

    Thanks

  16. Illustrator must make accessible PDFs

    Please add accessibility tools/features to Illustrator so that:

    1. It will export to an accessible PDF/UA-1 compliant PDF with live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual graphic elements, File Info metadata, and reading order.

    2. All of these accessibility features will be retained when an AI file is imported into InDesign for a larger sized document. Must retain the live machine-readable text, tags, Alt-text on individual elements, and reading order. (At this time, AI files become static graphics when imported into InDesign and they lose their live text and all capability of being fully PDF/UA-1 compliant.)

    This is extremely critical for info…

  17. Acrobat Reader for Mac does not expose an Accessibility Tree to VoiceOver

    Acrobat for Windows reads tagged PDF (aka PDF/UA) files and exposes an accessibility tree to assistive tech such as NVDA, Narrator, JAWS etc.

    Acrobat for Mac does not do this. (And neither does Preview, or Safari). This means that the 'portable' document format is not accessible to Mac screen reader users at all. You can get the text nodes, but none of the semantic tags are respected.

    Why is there such a discrepancy between accessibility support on the Mac vs. Windows versions of Acrobat Reader?
    That's not what 'portable' means! Please address this as soon as possible.

  20. Bug: Accessibility tool making text disappear

    The "Make Accessible" tool is making text disappear in the document. Working in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, 2015.006.30505. I opened the document, clicked on Tools, then Action Wizard, then Make Assessible. First fopur steps worked fine, but after runnuing the Document Pass and the Alt Text detection, text went missing in numerous places in the document. This is the fourth time this has happened. Look at the header on the first page.
