  1. "Combing files in Acrobat..." is not combining .HEIC files

    Working on Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1803, OS Build 17134.523
    Acrobat Pro DC, Version 2019.010.20069

    When combining a list of files, Acrobat will not actually combine the file type HEIC. Everything else is combined but there is no indication in Acrobat that it left the HEIC files out. When combining dozens of files, it is easy to miss this issue.The "Files" attachment shows two PDF's and an HEIC file that need to be combined. When I select all, right click, "Combine files in Acrobat...", I get the results in the "Results" attachment. All that appears is the two PDF's.

  2. Issue with pdf files coming from Nitro 9

    When combining pdf files coming from Nitro 9, in some cases I have issues with some sentences. There are missing letters.

  3. Cannot Combine documents

    I used Adobe Acrobat Pro DC on a Windows 7 64 bit desktop environment.

    I simply select the combine documents icon button, it has me choose either existing open document or add unopened documents. Either way it does not work. When I select open document, it has the one open document and then I need to add the 2nd document to combine, and I select it, those documents never populated the page and thus I cannot move to the next step of clicking on the "Combine" button. This has happened multiple times. I think of asking for a refund and…

  4. Combining multiple PDF's in to one Document. NOT WORKING.

    Using Acrobat PRO DC 19.008.20074
    When I open Adobe, Combine files, add the files I want to combine, either PDF or other word, excel, etc, click on Combine. What I end up with is a "PORTFOLIO". The thumbnails are all visible on the navigation pane but the actual PDF that was supposed to contain all the pages I just combined, there is only the first page, no other pages. I create Board packets with this feature. It has become a big headache. How do I get this to work.

  5. Create Portfolio

    When I create a "combined pdf" from several files, using Acrobat Pro DC, the first page of the resulting pdf portfolio "forces" one to download Acrobat Reader. I use a Mac and my preferred pdf reader is Preview so I do not then have Acrobat Reader installed on my Mac any longer. Why am I forced to download Reader?

  6. Microsoft hyperlink accessibility through pdf conversion

    If you add a pdf link in word it will not be accessible when you CONVERT the document to pdf. BUT if you create a pdf using the word file, the links created in the word document will be accessible. My request is that you make the hyperlinks accessible through pdf conversion as well. MEANING, please have the accessible when you file>>save as >> pdf.

  7. change of word format particularly drawings and call outs

    for some reason when I have inserted a drawing and then inserted a call out over this drawing to identify things for my clients, when I create a PDF it either doesn't show the arrow correctly, or covers up areas with a blank spot. it has never done this before, it doesn't do it all the time either, even in the same document some will be exactly as they are represented in word, others not. makes my reports look very amateurish

    Hi Keith

    Given other high priority items, we have decided to not fix this issue.
    As a workaround, you can un-check the preference to upload to Document cloud and convert the file locally itself.
    Here are the steps:

    Open Acrobat
    Go to Tools > Create PDF > Single file
    click on “Select a file”
    In the file picker dialog, select the Word file and uncheck the preference " Use Adobe Create PDF cloud service"
    click on Open

    and then create the PDF

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks

  8. Convert Email Attachments to PDF in Combine Files Feature.

    I can drag and drop emails from Outlook into the Combine Files Window, however, when you "combine" the files, the attachments are embedded rather than attached at the end of each email. You can manually convert each email in Outlook with attachments in that fashion, but when you have 100+ emails with attachments, that just doesn't work.

  10. Converting .ai to .pdf

    I've been converting .ai to pdf by dragging onto Acrobat DC. By doing this, I don't need fonts or linked images. Had a file that gave me the error: "Acrobat pdf conversion could not be completed. This could be due to a network error or if there is no valid Acrobat online service membership."
    Other .ai files convert just fine, but this one file it doesn't work. I dragged onto Acrobat Pro 11 and the file converts just fine. It's curious it works on an older version of acrobat but not DC.

    It should COMBINE FILES INTO A SINGLE PDF, not create a portfolio, which is what it does.

  13. When in Acrobat DC with several open tabs; have the ability to combine the tabs into one pdf.

    Would like to be able to select open tabs and combine/save them as one pdf rather than go out to the combine pdf function and drop/select them. Since they are already open and have been updated, now want to combine the tabs and not save the files separately and then use the regular combine function.

    Please follow below steps to Turn off portfolio PDF creation while combing:
    Launch Acrobat and goto “Tools→Combine App→Options (gear icon)”.
    Now under “Option” uncheck " Save as PDF Portfolio" and Ok.

    You are done, combine and get your desire result . Let us know if you face any issue.

    Thanks,

  15. Rotate single document before saving/combining multipage pdf

    When combining files/multiple pages into single pdf file, some pages maybe oriented horizontal vs vertical. It would be nice to be able to rotate all the pages to the same orientation prior to binding all the files.
    Just a thought. This feature maybe in the program already and I just don't see it. I know you can do it from a single page, this is just to skip that step of doing it in one aspect of the program and saving then doing the 2nd combine step. Just a though

    Hi

    Please try creating from File > Create > Create Multiple PDF files
    Add the files that you want and as you press OK, click on “The Same folder selected at the start” when asked for target folder.

    Hope this helps!

  17. Ability to Hide Toolbars in a Portfolio like Adobe XI

    In Adobe XI, we were able to hide the Editing Tools and toolbars in a Portfolio, so when we sent it to a client, they were able to only view the documents. Can we please get that capability back in Adobe Acrobat 2017?

  18. Combining files

    As a new user of Acrobat DC, I combine 2 files and save the portfolio. When I open up my new combined file there is a column panel on the left that shows the 2 documents that I combined. I cannot scroll through my new combined document from page 1 to the end. Rather, I must use arrows to toggle between my 2 documents. What am I missing to see it as one new combined document? Thanks.

  20. Combine Emails and Attachments

    I'd love for Adobe to add support for combining and convert email attachments. We use Adobe Acrobat for bulk printing, and it would be wonderful if we could load email messages (.msg) files in the combine files to Adobe box, and then print them.

    Hi

    This is already present in Acrobat – Combine menu.
    1. click on File>Create > Combine Files into Single PDF.
    2. Click on Add Files dropdown and select Add Email.

    Alternatively, you can drag and drop emails on Acrobat’s combine window.

    Thanks
    Tanvi
