  1. Export to Microsoft Word

    1. Open a PDF document with Arabic content.

    2. This PDF was generated from InDesign CC2017. Arabic fonts used is a good True Type and OpenType fonts. Macintosh 10.11.2 / Acrobat DC Build: 15.23.20056.213124

    3. When exporting to MS Office format, we expect to have a decent conversion as we see with PDFs that has English content.

    4. I opened resulted Word document in MS. Word on Windows, Text Edit on Mac, Apple Preview. The result varies, but generally Arabic text doesn't convert properly, most words scrambled and fragmented.

    • Export PDF as InDesign file

      We often receive multi-page PDFs of publications initially created in InDesign with a request for updates. In order to make these updates flexibly, we would have to recreate the document indesign and then make the updates.

      I seams reasonable to ask Adobe, to create a functionality, where one can convert or export PDF (generated from InDesign document) to .indd InDesign file format.

      • Latest updated version Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2017.012.20095 problem

        The latest version is taking too much time while saving the file. Sometime the latest version gets corrupted after saving. We fill that the older version was better.

            • User Product Report

              Within the Adobe Admin Console an administrator does not have the capability to export user data identifying which product is assigned to the user. To run the reports you have to drill to every product and export the data. I asked for the report from tech support and they said the feature I am requesting is not available but to request to it added as a feature. On the feature wish form drop list it does not specify Admin functions so I chose first Adobe product on the list. The function to export all user data to understand the products…

              • Saving a file created from an Illustrator file overwrites that file instead of opening a new save dialogue.

                Steps to Reproduce:
                1. open acrobat DC
                2. create a PDF from file.
                3. save file
                4. check the original file to see if it has retained it's format and is properly openable.

                Environment:
                OS: Windows 10
                CPU: Intel i5 6600k @4.3GHz
                RAM: 16gb(2x8gb) G-skill Trident-z @3000MHz
                Motherboard: Gigabyte G1 gaming 5

                Acrobat Version: 2015.023.20070

                Expected result:
                Doing this should bring up a new save dialogue, or the save-as dialogue technically. Then once it is saved it should switch to that file.

                Observed Result:
                Doing this overwrote the original file w/o providing a save dialogue.

                I have attached the ruined…

                  • Export to MS Word without putting every **** piece of text in a text box

                    I can see certain documents were created in MS Word with simple follow on/flowing text and standard paragraph styles ie no **** text boxes. Even with the export options turned off, Acrobat does this incredibly annoying export to text boxes where it is simply run-on (flowing) text. You then have to extract the text, box by box to get the document to be in an editable form. Even exporting to rtf has similar issues. Exporting to plain text means you have to format.

                    In the end, you waste valuable time either extracting the text or having to reformat the text…

                      In Acrobat XI on Windows I save as the file to create another same file. But the text in the creating file has been modified.
                      Steps to eproduce:
                      1. Open the Demo File.pdf and click "Save As" in File tab.
                      2. Give a name and save it somewhere.
                      3. Reopen the new file you will easily find it is not the same as Demo File.pdf

                      • Slight problem converting from Adobe PDF to Microsoft Word (.docx)

                        The type and spacing are out of sorts - especially if a graph happens to be in the paper. You have to essential hand type in the data to make sure all data it's aligned properly. Often font changes, as does spacing. This just requires extra attention, and editing. Apart from that - great program!

                        • Export to Excel

                          I tried to export a PDF to Excel in order to capture and manipulate the data without having to retype it. When I did so, the resulting Excel document was unreadable and the formatting was off. I have several files like this that I need to extract the data from. I have Acrobat Pro for Mac. I'm using osSierra version 10.12.6. Please see the attached PDF and resulting Excel output file.

                            • Problem with saving pdf to postscript and next read as PDF

                              When I export PDF to postscript and next create PDF from that poscript, text is viewed correct, but when I try to copy that text then all or some text is unreadable. I am using Adobe Acrobat DC. Input PDF file could be created in older version of Adobe. Do you have similar problem? I wonder if you have found a solution so you can share with me.

                              Thanks,

                              • Proper table conversion from PDF to Excel/XML

                                I would like to request a normal PDF to Excel/XML conversion capabilities, especially in regards to a table formatting.

                                I understand that PDF files are not always properly created/formatted, but I do not see how it can be an issue for a good converter. The main point of converting PDF to Excel is to have a properly aligned table. I had experience with a third party PDF editing software, which costs less than Adobe Acrobat Standard and is able to automatically convert PDF to Excel with a seamless table formatting.Why Adobe, who invented Portable Document Format in the early 90s,…

                                    I've been using Adobe PDF converter for several months (PDF to excel) and today started having an issue where one random PDF out of the batch will convert to just a blank excel.

                                        Hello Vishal,

                                        We apologize for the issue you faced.
                                        Could you please help me with the following information to get clarity on the workflow:

                                        → The Acrobat dot version you are using
                                        → The OS platform you are on
                                        → A screenshot of the message that you are getting

                                        Thanks for your patience and continued support to Acrobat.

                                        Regards,
                                        Adobe Acrobat Team

                                        • white box around text - Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

                                          I've got some text layers 95% opacity with drop shadow applied on Illustrator. Those Ai files are linked into a Indesign doc, exported as PDF but when I view the artworks on Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (version attached) there is a white box around the text. This only happens on Adobe Acrobat. If I use Mac Preview it looks fine. I can only fix the issue if I make the text layer 100% opacity in Illustrator. This bug only happens when the doc is viewed on any zooms that are 100% or less. It looks fine on 125% or over…
