  1. Acrobat needs an append option... or at least print multiple docs to a Portfolio

    Acrobat needs an append option... or the ability to print multiple docs to a Portfolio.
    All of the competitors have an option to print multiple files and add to single document. Acrobat even allows you to append scans to exiting pdfs. Why is there no option that does not require you to save multiple pdfs and then combine them. Seems easy enough... but when you have users refusing to switch platforms because they email statements to customers all day, the added steps of saving and combining documents would literally add hours a day to their workflow, You are not going…

    • Combining Separate PDFs in Order of Selection.

      How would you like the feature to work? When selecting multiple pdf's to combine I'd like adobe to arrange them in order of selection (Based on which item was selected first). Nitro PDF does that.

      Why is this feature important to you? It saves time when you extract pages from emails and you select each in an order you want them to be combined. Otherwise you end up dragging each selection to arrange while creating the binder.

      • Please add the .msg file type as an option for converting email messages that are saved on a network drive to PDF Portfolio format.

        We need the ability to convert folders/subfolders containing .msg files to a PDF Portfolio file. But the .msg extension is not a supported extension for conducting this conversion. The only way to do it is to create a folder in Outlook and drag all of the .msg files into the folder, which isn't practical and is an extra step. All of the other Microsoft file types seem to be supported (docx, xlsx, pptx, etc.), so I'm not sure why the .msg file type isn't supported.

        I have spent a couple support sessions with Tanvi Bhalla of Adobe trying to solve…

        • Acrobat pro 2017 can`t re-arrange sort order after creating Portfolio

          when adding another file it goes to the end . In older versions of Acrobat Pro you could sort & re-arrange Portfolio files
          tried that workaround where you create a new column in view /portfolio details & edit the values to get the files in the proper order sequence .. bit that is a bit of a kludge & really doesn`t affect the printing order of individual Portfolio files or default view when opening
          version 2017.011.30065 Win 7 32 bit & win 10 64 bit

            Hi

            You can sort the files based on name or other fields in the Portfolio but that would be just for viewing and will not be saved.
            Currently there is no mechanism to re-arrange portfolio files.
            We have taken your feature request.

            Thanks

            • One Click Sub-Folder Integration in PDF Portfolio

              When you combined individual subfolders within a master folder when creating a PDF Portfolio, the previous Acrobat Pro allowed you to do this feature with one click. The current Acrobat Pro DC software requires that you create a portfolio and manually add the individual folders. Please add back the option for the one-click subfolder integration!

              • Combine two small pages and create one single page

                When I scan two pages and crop them, they are smaller or equal to an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. I want to be able to take the two pages and make them just one single page. There are many times that I have scanned something that had just a couple lines at the top of the second page. I may want to be able to shrink that to fit it all on one page. I think there should be options for doing that. Since people are trying to be more and more digital to store information and use…

                • Converting emails with attachments

                  Despite numerous Admins saying this matter has been resolved, it has NOT. We need to be able to convert *.msg files and, rather than *embed* the attachment, it needs to convert the attachment too (if not already a PDF) and place the attachment BEHIND the email. Email + attachment in one PDF, NOT embedded. Please address this, as it is a VERY important feature for law firms.

                  • PDF Thumbnails in PDF Portfolio : Portfolio/ View / Layout

                    In Acrobat Pro DC 2015 Classic & Acrobat Pro 2017 the PDF icons on the left are quite large in Portfolio / View /Layout . It would be great if PDF Thumbnails could be enabled like in Windows explorer by checking the preference in General . I realise not all file thumbnails for all types of files could easily be created ( example Excel , Word )etc ..but we combine a lot of PDF secured files into a Portfolio & the thumbnail PDF view would really be a great feature in Portfolio/View / Layout

                    • PATH AND FILE NAME INSERT OPTION

                      I would like to see a feature added to Acrobat that would allow Acrobat to stamp the path (location) and name of the document which was created. I am attaching an example of a document created with a different program in which the feature is highlighted..

                      It would also be great if that stamp would adjust and change as the document is renamed, moved or received and saved by the receiving party.

                      • Don't capture bcc data when converting Outlook emails to PDF

                        When doing a batch conversion of emails in an Outlook folder, all of the emails are captured in a single PDF file. However, it would be nice to restrict what information is captured. For example, I'd like to have bcc information excluded from the email-to-PDF conversion.

                            I wish to disable this dialog box as I am archiving thousands of files a day.

                            • I'd like to be able to make a flip book (that turns the page like a magazine)

                              Title says it really. It's simply that there a lot of 'make your own flip books' softwares out there, but they are not well designed and expensive, when this feels like it is a sensible add on to what one can already do with Adobe PDF pro. It's annoying to have to go elsewhere for pdf expertise, as I feel Adobe should be able to smash this themselves.

                                Simply format support for OpenOffice formats used by OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

                                This is vital for those that prefer those formats over Microsoft Office formats. While they aren't as fully featured or useful in some cases they are free and open source making them a great alternative to the closed source formats of their Microsoft counterparts. Plus my book features some of these formats and i'm too lazy to convert them over...

                                  • Option to HIDE email data from header using Outlook PDF Conversion

                                    After searching for days on this forum and online, I've been unable to find any solution to preventing header information from appearing on Outlook PDF conversions.

                                    Convert to PDF in Outlook automatically creates a header in the PDF file with the Author, Recipient, Date, and Subject of the email. Not only does it cause issues with formatting (forcing the layout of emails to be pushed down an inch or so) but there are plenty of circumstances where an email subject/author/date information may need to be hidden when printing.

                                    Portfolios allow for bulk operations on several emails. Automatic Archival also preserves…

                                      Hi

                                      Currently there is no way to exlude header information from Outlook and create PDF without it.

                                      However, we have taken your feature request which will be prioritized depending upon other backlog items.

                                      Thanks
                                      Tanvi

                                      • docx no longer recognized

                                        I purchased 3 licenses of Adobe Pro DC for use in my office. They were each installed on different computers(all windows 10 up to date, newest version of Microsoft office). We needed the software to convert word documents to PDF for upload to our new EMR system. All three worked great at first. Then all of a sudden two of the programs stopped recognizing docx. The word documents had not changed, were all in the same docx format! The third license was and still is working, unless I try to log in from a different computer to that license, then…

                                        • not able to combine files

                                          Hi there,

                                          I can't combine files. When I add files to combine the page is just going blank. When I press 'combine' button it does click but it doesn't combine the files. How can I fix it?
