Please fix the deskew feature in Adobe Pro DC
I used to deskew in Adobe Acrobat Pro whenever I OCR'ed a document. And the deskewing worked so well: every page would be rotated a tiny amount and usually the improvement was noticeable.
In Adobe Acrobat DC (on macOS 10.15.7), the "Recognize Text" function no longer performs deskewing. So I OCR and deskew using the "Enhance" function under Scan & OCR:
Scan & OCR > Enhance > Scanned Document > Deskew
However it doesn't seem to work. Although the Deskew feature is turned on in Filters under Settings, when I run Enhance, it doesn't actually deskew. (And worse, unless I change the default image quality to High Quality, the image is degraded.) I thought maybe my documents were all 100% aligned. But then I ran into a document that clearly needed deskewing and nothing happened when I deskewed.
It seems to me that from one version to the next, routine tasks should become more convenient to perform. This is not what's happened.

Not sure if you found this, but if you "Enhance" it a second time it will usually Deskew the document. I am still trying to find a fix for the degraded image quality - I tried turning every Enhance Scan filter to every level or off but nothing seems to help.

Same problem with Surface Tablet and OS 10, Doesn't deskew in "enhance document"
I have this issue as well. Deskew doesn't work unless you have OCR turned on. When I turn on OCR, the pages then appear blank for a second or so before the text loads.
