  2. "Scanned documents" recognize text quality

    When editing a PDF that already contains text that was converted to outlines, the "recognize text" feature redraws that already outlined text to a ****** version of the text. It's like it converts it to a low resolution image, and then outlines that image. The settings under "Enhance Scans > Recognize Text > Settings" have no influence over the "Edit PDF > Scanned Documents > Recognize Text" feature.

    Why would you reoutline already outlined text?

  3. Bug: Watermark does not stick to the file

    After adding an image watermark, Acrobat visually adds it the file. But the save button is not enabled until I exit editing. So if I close the file in edit mode I don't get the save changed file dialog. In addition, adding watermark to multiple pdf files doesn't work when the files are not opened.

  5. Add link to header/footer

    It would be great to be able to have links available in the headers/footers feature. This would help tremendously with very large doc’s with more than 100 pages, particularly if the reader of the document tries to jump from one section to another.

    This would help if one tries to create ‘Back to home page’ links on every page in a large pdf document. Say, one creates a ‘Table of Contents’ in the beginning of the deck, with links to every section in the deck. Once you get to the respective section (e.g. pages 120-150 in the deck), it would…

  7. Table of Contents

    I would like to be able to generate a table of contents using bookmarks within a PDF. While there are some third party plugins that will do this, it would be helpful to have this feature within Acrobat.

  8. JPEG export improvements for "Save file as" option

    Hi, can you create an option to choose which format to choose by default using the "Save file as" command. Because I often have to export a jpeg format and have a quick button for the "Save file as", but every time I have the drop-down menu in the dialog I choose the JPEG format. Just add an option to choose the default format when using the option, so anyone can use it for most export formats. Or just remember the last selected format every time you use "Save file as

  10. Need to alllow editing of Livecycle forms without having to buy yet another Adobe product.

    I have multiple adobe PDF fillable forms that were create in LiveCycle when it was bundled with prior versions of Acrobat. Now I cannot edit them without purchasing LiveCycle ES4 or the product that is now replacing LiveCycle. I already pay for a 3 user license for creative cloud, and just purchased a 10 user license to Acrobat Pro DC, cost of over $350 per month...

  11. Margin Controls bug

    In the Set Page Boxes dialog, under Margin Controls, when you use the
    Apply to: dropdown to switch among boxes, the top, bottom, left and right values do not update to the selected box. For instance, if I change the values for the TrimBox only, then select Bleed Box, the values I just entered display for BleedBox. however, the calculated Cropped Page size for the BleedBox correctly does not include the margins I entered under TrimBox.

    I also found that if I choose CropBox again, which in my sample case has all zeroes in the margin fields, the values restore…

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  20. 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.
