  1. Selecting Items

    When editing converted graphics files it is difficult to select multi-layered items. Going through layers is an option, but much time is lost clicking on each path layer trying to find the right item. If a selection could locked or hidden much time could be saved in accessing the desired item.

  2. Bug Report: Update Watermark - Position > Vertical Distance setting > inconsistent setting / display

    Using Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, Situation:
    a watermark was added to a document, vertical distance set to " 2 Milimeters from Top" and document saved. Then re-open document, use "Tools > Pages > Watermark > Update...". The settings in dialog box are displayed as they were saved (e.g. Vertical Distance: 2 Milimeter from Top), however in the preview pane, the existing watermark shows at another position then in dialog (position is displayed at Inches instead of Milimeters). Watermark shifted somewhere to the middle of the page.
    Workaround: change Vertical Distance setting to another unit (e.g. Centimeters), then change back to…

  4. editing pdf and question mark boxes

    I have been editing a PDF without problem, and now all of the sudden, I have a question mark in a box, littered throughout my PDF. It seems to occur over the letter T. It also won't let me into the text box to edit any more.

    Working on a large project with a tight deadline, with hours in the project already..

  8. Adobe acrobat no usable any more... Sorry!!

    Your program hangs and struggle all the times when it opens a document. It take a time to open a document at the point it is making it unusable.

    It is not a great deal to open a pdf file, why Acrobat reader take a lot of time to open a file?

    Please make a performance update.

  10. Windows 10 Free Drawing with Pen

    I ordered a pen interface device for my PC (Huion 420), excited to be able to handwrite/draw notes on PDFs, in addition to typing notes on them. However, when I have the device plugged in, the free drawing tool stops working. I can click with the mouse or try to draw with the pen/pad device. Nothing shows up. The drawing tool does, however, work with my mouse when I unplug the device. This bug is one of the main features preventing me from using Adobe Acrobat as my primary note-taking software in medical school.

  11. Editing Issues

    Recently when I edit a PDF the first time, the fonts are fine. It is only after I have saved the PDF to my computer and then tried to reopen that same PDF to edit. This is where the problem occurs. I am only able to add text in some jibberish language and not the Arial font already set on the PDF. What is the fix to this as it's very frustrating??

    Another issue is after making substantial edits to the doc, the system then crashes and the file has to be closed and reopened in like a save mode.

  13. files skipped during full text index not logged or displayed

    During a full text index of over 2,000 files, a number of them are skipped. The error briefly appears in the index window, but when the process is complete that window only shows the last part of the processing and truncates the earlier messages. I turned on the preference to log errors to a file, but DC does not output those errors to a log file. How am I supposed to know which files were not indexed?

  14. Continuous Numbering

    The LexisNexis Adobe CaseMap plug-in allows continuous bates numbering. The plug-in allows you to save the current bates numbering sequence, as well as prefixes, for future use. For example: Let's say one day I bates number a serious of documents (say it ends up being A0001-A0113). And then a week later I need to bates stamp more documents. I click on the name of the series I last saved and then my new files will automatically begin at A0114.

    Since I use the bates stamping tool for legal document productions, this is very important to avoid accidentally producing documents with…

  17. Color Highlight text dont work properly

    In Swedish:
    I mitt jobb uppmanar vi kunder att aldrig använda pratbubblor som korrkommentarer då inte visar exakt var text ska korrigeras och flyttar på sig beroende på skärmförstoring.

    När man använder verktyget "färgmarkera text" gulmarkeras mer än det man markerat, oftast tecknet till höger också.
    Det ser jag som en bugg. Se bifogad pdf där paranteserna ser ut att vara markerade och avslutande punkt likaså, trots att jag inte makerat dem.
    Mvh Yvonne

  18. More shape images

    Add more shape images like triangle and tons more, it is very difficult to add images in Pro other than the VERY FEW. Include basic sizing functions like sizing, skewing, and all the other basic type shape editing in many software titles.

  20. Shared file notifications showing when someone is already editing a document

    I am needing a way to have a notification pop up upon entering a document letting me know if someone is already in the pdf and editing. As it stands now, the only notification you get is when you are finished editing and ready to save. At this point neither individuals can save their changes unless someone closes out without saving changes to allow the other to save.
