      Hi Laura

      Seems like your default Excel handler is changed to Acrobat. You can change the default Excel handler by following steps:

      1. right-click on any Excel file.
      2. Go to Properties.
      3. Click on “Change…” button against "Opens With: " and select Excel from the list of apps. If you don’t see it, click on More Apps or navigate to your Excel install location where you can find excel.exe
      4. Once done, click on Apply > OK.

      It should work fine now.

      Thanks
      Tanvi

          • send to one note

            unlike in windows 10 (using Acrobat DC and Office 365 in tandem)- I cannot 'send to Onenote' on my MacBook Pro. there is no context menu option.

                When exporting PDF's or trying to save any document for the first time, the SAVE AS option is not working. It just turns white and gets stuck in limbo.

                  • 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…

                                    • 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
