  1. Expandable text fields and tables

    I need to create a form in Acrobat that have expandable tables, so the user can add rows as needed and that has text fields that expands as the user fills in the text (not just the scrollbar at the end of the text field as that cannot be printed)

  2. PLEASE MAKE ACROBAT PDF MAKER AVAILABLE IN WORD ON THE MAC!!!

    Hello,

    I need PDFMaker to create accessible pdfs in Word. Maker is suggested to meet WCAG 2.0 requirements.

    I'm very surprised that Adobe has not made Maker available on the mac as MOST DESIGNERS USE MACS! Adobe is the gold standard in the design world. (Although I don't usually work in Word, these are the files my client has given me.)

    Luckily I have a Windows laptop so I can get my work done.

    Thank you,
    Erica Cetin

  3. Gray boxes adjacent to text and images after conversion from Word

    I converted Word 2013 file to PDF by using Save As PDF in Word. The entire file displayed large, light gray rectangles adjacent to the text on each page. (See attached image.) The solution to remove those rectangles was to delete comments that appeared in the Word document and save it as a PDF, again. There was only one comment in the Word file that got there by accident, but it caused hours of frustration for me. Once it was removed, the conversion worked like a charm.

    To remove comments, in Word, go to Review, Delete Comments.

  4. PDFMaker Add-in causes Title: Failed error from MS Word 2016

    An accessible MS Word 2016 docx, saved as a PDF with the Adobe PDFMaker Add-in enabled, creates a PDF when Accessibility Checked with Acrobat Pro 2017 results in a Title: Failed error. The same MS Word PDF created after disabling the PDFMaker Com Add-in no longer results in the Title:Failed error.

    The Title: Failed error caused by PDFMaker is easily corrected by clicking "Fix it" in acrobat pro, but the document already has a title and this step should not be necessary. It's better to disable PDFMaker which is installed as part of Acrobat Pro 2017.

    Please fix PDFMaker.

  5. When you convert a Microsoft

    There is a glitch with Adobe PDF. When you covert a Microsoft Word document to an Adobe PDF, some pilcrows (¶) are changed while some are not in the same document. Some pilcrows have a curved bottom. Additionally, all superscript characters become subscript. So all in-text citations with a superscript number and all superscript th and nd, etc., such as in 4th, 2nd, etc., become subscript. It also depends on how you open the file. On Adobe Cloud, the pilcrow problem doesn't happen, but the other one does. On Instructure Canvas opening my PDF files, both problems are present.

  8. Combined file - contents changed

    Combined file - contents changed. I had combined 2 PDFs, however when I view the combined file the numbers on one of the pages completely changed. I work in financial services so this issue is a significant loss in confidence to the software.

  10. STOP CHANGING LINE THICKNESS!!!!!

    You need to fix the bug that changes line thicknesses when saving a Word document as a PDF. It is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS that normal underlines in Word appear thick and bold when opened in PDF. I don't want Adobe changing or enhancing ANYTHING when I save a document as a PDF. The PDF should appear exactly as it does on the screen in Word. Since it doesn't, you have a bug that you need to fix. Don't make excuses! Don't tell me, it's because "enhance thin lines" is default. Why would anyone want Adobe to enhance anything, ever?! If I…

  18. Combine/Create PDF error

    I am trying to combine multiple documents into one PDF using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. I have tried using Create PDF as well as Combine Files and continue to get the same problem no matter what I try. I upload 4 documents, and when I click "combine", all files are changed to the first document that was chosen to be uploaded. So, I end up with one PDF with 4 of the same document instead of one PDF with 4 different documents.

    This does not happen when I create a portfolio, but a portfolio cannot be used in my situation.
