Please fix linkCreation.dotm
Acrobat Pro (for the last several versions) continues to install linkCreation.com into MS Word directories, even though it is known to cause Word either to crash or to throw VBA errors. Please either fix the template or stop installing it.
Can you try updating your Office and Acrobat?
Let us know if that fixes the issue else, please share the screenshot of the errors or crash dump.
Good news for Mac users. If your only mission is to join/combine/split PDFs you do not need Acrobat invading your Mac.Use Preview to do this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202945
Yes, I keep getting warning messages for Word about this, and both disabling the add-in and deleting it, but it keeps getting re-installed and re-enabled every time I update Acrobat. I do not need to make PDFs from Word, so there should be a way to permanently delete or disable it.
Word crashes immediately after startup. The problem disappears when I delete linkCreation.dotm.
I can send you the crashlog, but i do prefer not to upload it here on an open forum
After updating Adobe Acrobat DC, the template came back, and crashing reappeared. I deleted it again, and that solved it. I just need Acrobat to combine multiple PDFs. I do not need integration with Office, or anything else. Can I disable this?
Link creation is Acrobat Word PDFMaker addin file for Mac Office. It helps to create better quality PDFs with links, tags, bookmarks and via Document Cloud service.
What is linkCreation? What does it do? Why do I need it?
