  1. Create Link should default to NEXT not HELP

    When I add links to a PDF, I do NOT need help EVERY single time I create a link; it would be MUCH more convenient if the default selection were NEXT, not HELP. In this manner, I could use enter to select next, whereas now, when I inadvertently click enter thinking it should be the default, it seems to be common sense - oh, wait, that no longer exists, my bad. I guess never mind, no commonsense, why bother, right?

  3. Add Feature like Adobe Command-Line Tools (*.exe) for Merging Multiple Files into 1 PDF

    Would like for Adobe to have command-line tools (*.exe) for use in batch scripting or any languages for merging multiple documents into ONE PDF file so the task can be scheduled to run nightly... This would be an awesome tool opposing being forced to use the GUI (a manual process).

  4. Merge odd- and even-numbered scanned pages into a single document in the correct order

    When scanning a double-sided document in a non-duplex scanner, you end up with two separate PDFs - one for the odd-numbered pages and one for the even-numbered pages. Combining them in Acrobat Pro creates a single document with the pages in the order "1-3-5-7-....2-4-6-8-...", meaning that we have to manually move all of the pages into the correct order, which is not feasible for hundred-page long documents. We need a 'combine' function that automatically interleaves the pages so that they end up in the order "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-..".

  5. Prepare Form; Tabbing Field Groupings

    Problem: When creating a fillable form, you either have to go in order of fields you create or in order of field creation number. When I receive forms that have already been given a great deal of time, the tabbing functionality is not ideal due to the function obeying the rule of field creation/ purposeful placing in the fields scrollbar. This becomes a chore when dealing with hundreds of fields. Ideally at this moment you want to scrap the whole creation and begin in a more formal and tedious recreation.

    Solution: Multiple click/drag selectable field grouping. Where you can form…

  7. Too difficult to use.

    Creating pdf's used to be simple. I know because I have used acrobat for 30 years. It has become a complete mess. I have tried for 30 minutes to add jpegs to a single pdf and it is still not right. Get some UX people who really know how to communicate. I can't believe how difficult this simple task has become. Sorry but it is true. I have the Adobe Creative Suite so I'm not unfamiliar with adobe. I have used photoshop for 20 years, illustrator for 20 years, premiere pro, InDesign for as long as it has been out,…

  8. lightest weight of a font is used when making a PDF from a webpage

    Environment:
    Acrobat DC (CC) 21.0 on Mac OS X Big Sur 11.2.3
    Helvetica Neue typeface installed with system: /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.ttc

    Expected:

    Observed:
    The lightest available weight of the typeface is chosen, making the resulting PDF unreadable. PDF attached to forum post is also attached…

  10. "Save as PDF" Bug

    Hello,

    Just wanted to report this bug. So when I combine a bunch of pdf files I save the combined file using the "print as PDF" function (because some of the files are fillable and I want it "flattened") almost 90% of the times it won't save the file in the first attempts and it will happen in the 2nd or 3rd attempt. 5% of the time the output file only has one page(the first page out of 10-20 pages) so I have to try it again.
    I am using Adobe Acrobat 2021.001.20145 on windows 10

  12. 'Create PDF From Clipboard' Eventually Corrupts Clipboard on Windows 10 (BUG)

    Open a viewing system such as Hathi Trust or an ebook platform. Copy a page image, 'Create PDF from Clipboard'. Repeat more than 15 times. On some occasions you cannot then create a PDF from all the open pages. However, after doing this it is then impossible to copy and paste in other windows applications as it appears that the windows clipboard has become corrupted by acrobat. A full reboot is required to fix this.

  13. Combine Files result loses focus to last-selected open document.

    My specs are in the attached screenshots.

    Note: I had problems with Acrobat yesterday, so this morning I uninstalled/reinstalled the app via the Creative Cloud app.


    1. With one or more PDFs open, choose File > Create > Combine Files into a Single PDF….


    2. Add any number of files using the Add Files… command or by clicking the Add Files button.


    3. Click the Combine button.


    4. When the resulting PDF appears (Binder[n].pdf), focus returns to the last-selected open PDF.


    In general the first thing I want to do when the combined file appears is save and rename it.

    It's minor but frustrating…

  15. save PDF to same folder as original file

    When I right click on a word or excel file and "convert to pdf" it would be better if the new pdf could save to the same folder as the original file by default. There should be an option to allow this, which I found to be a huge time saver when using Kofax Power PDF. The current adobe saving options only allow for using one pre-defined folder, or the last folder that something was saved to. This results in files being saved to the wrong location, or time wasted navigating to different folders every time.

  16. Acrobat DC has a bug when combining files.

    Since switching over to Acrobat DC, when dragging and dropping files into the combine feature screen more often than not it will open the files instead of adding them to the list to be combined. This makes a slow process even more cumbersome.

  17. I have been waiting for years for Acrobat to support HEIC files.

    I put a massive amount of photos on Acrobat.
    But for years now I have to convert my HEIC files to JPEG before I can combine the photos into Acrobat.
    For such a large well known company I would have expected Adobe to have supported HEIC files a long time before now.
    PLEASE DO IT SOON...

  20. Remember Prepare form settings for multi page / batch processing

    If i have a bunch of pdfs that i want to convert to forms it would be great if we could make a style template that would be applied to the group of documents, a default that sticks instead of having to choose the font size, font face, and alignment etc for every document ...
    also when the document opens i might want to select a group of "multi-page documents" to batch process and tell the interpreter to only make the first page into a form, retain the original formatting of the rest of the pages or each of the…
