        • BUG: Date field in Word not converting to PDF correctly.

          I created a date field, called VersionDate, as a Custom Document Property in Word. The field is displayed in the document footer. When I converted the document to PDF, the date changes from July 25, 2017 to July 24, 2017. I tried converting from Word plugin, Acrobat DC, and the Adobe PDF Services website, and each one sets the date back one day, but the Microsoft plugin also changes the format (from July 25, 2017 to 7/24/2017 (especially annoying since Australia does not use the U.S. date format).

            Hi Gabreille,

            If you open your Word document and go to Print Preview mode (Word→Print, select any printer and check the preview), you can see that the date changes to one day back. Adobe Acrobat has not come into picture till this point. It is the custom date field that is behaving incorrectly in Word.

            Thanks,
            -amboo

            • Export to PDF with no Dialogue Box from Automated Process

              I need a way to create a PDF using an automated process that does not cause a popup window to appear. If there were a way to set the file location and file name without the dialogue box it would be very valuable to us.

              There is an application called Bullzip that provides this functionality and charges a great deal of money to provide it.

              I am attempting to use an application called Bartender to produce label images that I want saved to a file location as a pdf. The only way that I have seen it done is with…

                Hi

                You can achieve this via Actions or Create Multiple PDF files option in a non-interactive way.
                You can also achieve that via a script or refer to the Acrobat SDK for some API to do that.

                Thanks

              • 1. Default Order when combining PDF Files

                I suppose this is a new idea, because it's not really a bug. Here's the summation of my problem/idea:

                I scan files to my email using our copy machine/scanner. I then open and combine these files into single binders using AA Pro DC. To do this, I use the "Create PDF" tool from the tools menu, and then, from the "Create a PDF from any format" menu that appears, I select the "Multiple Files" and "Combine Files" option. When I click on the "NEXT" box, I can then choose to "Add Open Files," which is the option I use most…

                    Option to keep page and bookmark navigation panes open. I use them everyday. Every single time I open/create a new pdf, I have to open panes. Haven't found a way to keep them open if it exists.

                    • Option for name other than login

                      It would be nice if I could enter a name to use under Identity and could indicate to use this name regardless of how I am signed into acrobat. This way, comments added using my business or personal copy of Acrobat could show the exact same name. Thank you.

                          • Preference option to minimize RH Tools pane on file open in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

                            In a preferences option such that the Tools pane (on right hand sight of document window) will or will not display on PDF file open.

                            his will save time for what I anticipate is a large percentage of users that open PDF documents to read / comment without necessarily using the tools pane on RH side of the window.

                            • Wider Outlook Portfolio Creation Tools

                              The current Adobe plugin for Outlook 2016 works very well when creating portfolios from a group of emails. I'm able to add as many emails as I want to a single portfolio and the ability to append them when more emails come in is excellent. But these portfolios can only be added to from Outlook. It is important that I am able to add files to these Outlook portfolios without having to email them to myself first.

                                Hi

                                Thanks for your request. But this is as designed behavior because non-email PDF files won’t have fields like To:, From:, etc. which will create inconsistency in the PDF Portfolio.
                                So the workaround would be to email those files and convert/append to portfolios.

                                Thanks
                                Tanvi

                                  Hi

                                  This is already available in Acrobat DC while creating portfolio. You can drag and drop files in the order you want to arrange and then create Portfolio and it retains this setting even after saving it.

                                  Let us know if this is what you were looking for.

                                  Thanks

                                  • Please make it possible to 1.) import a word doc with images that remain at 300 dpi 2.) check the dpi of images in a PDF

                                    Just to expand the thought above. Many people are online searching for ways to do this. I was told in an Adobe chat that it was not possible. You all are brilliant -- can't you make it possible?

                                    • Bug - Acrobat Pro X for Windows crashes and stops working every few weeks

                                      Once every few weeks Acrobat Pro X, which I install as part of CS6 for Windows, crashes and stops working. It crashes when I try to open random files. After that it stops working and I need to reinstall it. It happened on two different computers, one running Windows 7 and one Windows 10.
