  1. BUG: Text field > action > reset form: New text fields added are automatically added to the list and DEFAULT AS SELECTED

    BUG: Text field > action > reset form > Make selections: New text fields added after the fact are automatically added to the list as they DEFAULT AS SELECTED. They should default as not selected as they did not exist before the field was made.

  2. "Use Current Properties as New Defaults" on Auto-Field Detection

    "Use Current Properties as New Defaults" should also apply to the auto-field detection wizard. It seems to defeat the purpose of being able to set these defaults if it only works when adding each field individually and manually.

  3. Error during signature verification. Adobe Acrobat error. Bad parameter. Sign

    When signing a PDF document and loading signed PDF into Acrobat Reader DC (v2022.001.20085, 64 bit). The file will load correctly but when clicking on on the signature it will give the error:

    Error during signature verification.
    
    Adobe Acrobat error.
    Bad parameter.
    

    After a LOT of trail and error I found out why. This is because Acrobat does not follow the spec in some cases. This why some validation works correctly in some parts, but not others.

    The field type (FT) shall be Sig, and the field value (V), if present,
    shall be a signature dictionary containing the signature and…

  4. Why can't we resize the contextual tools menu when using the prepare forms tool

    When using prepare forms tool the right sidebar that lists the tab order for fillable fields is too small (20 characters max) and the only way to reorder tab order is by drag and drop.

    Consequently, you drag something but you can not read the place that you are dragging to.

    Fix the right sidebar where it is resizable.

  5. Adobe Forms

    If required fields that are hidden are not filled, then the submit form action for a button produces an error that required fields are not completed.

    I have some fields that are set to be hidden or visible depending on other information in the form.

    I am searching for a script to work around this; however, I think this should already be the case as hidden fields are hidden for a reason.

  6. Screen flashes and writable fields disappear when I'm preparing form, especially when I'm zooming

    Screen flashes and fields disappear when I'm preparing a form, especially when I'm zooming in to align fields. Usually the entire screen grays out and pieces will appear as I move my mouse around. Makes it nearly impossible to create a form. Extremely buggy!!!

  8. Save MBOX Files to Adobe PDF Format

    I suggest you use the CubexSoft MBOX to PDF Converter to export MBOX emails to PDF file format. It is also important that the tool offers several conversion options in one installation. In addition, it allows you to convert MBOX files into PDF with all Windows OS including 11, 10, 8.1, 7, XP, Vista, and so on. All of these MBOX to PDF conversion features allow you to access MBOX files in almost any email conversion program be it Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Eudora Mail, Netscape, etc.

  9. One time edit on multiple text fields / other fields Properties

    I would like to request for multiple fields edits in one go.

    I use InDesign to create digital forms. After exporting the work, I opened the PDF in Acrobat. In my example, I have 4 rows of Date of Birth. I usually edit the DoB to custom dd/mm/yyyy. Acrobat as it is today, only allows me to edit the field one cell at a time which in my case I have to edit 4 times. Imagine if I have a table with 20 date of birth cells. That's 20 edits!!

    I would like the ability to select all 4 cells…

  13. I would like to propose that in the drop-down list application we can add a long text to it and that it appears completely on the form.

    I would like to propose that in the drop-down list application we can add a long text to it and that it appears completely on the form. I currently have a problem with this since the texts in my drop-down list are long and unfortunately they do not appear completely on the form. It would be interesting to add a parameter which authorizes the line to return itself automatically as it is possible in Excel. Thanks very much !

  14. There bugs using the tab key in Acrobat DC when making prepared form

    Bug is in the Properties window. If you enter something in the Name field, select all, and hit the tab key to go to Tooltip to paste that in there, Acrobat jumps to the next Field in the order instead of the next entry.

  15. Ghost multiline formatting

    When creating fillable fields, if I have previously created a field with multiline formatting, I often encounter a pop-up on subsequent fields if I attempt to create a date format, which tells me that I cannot format a multiline field as "date". In reality, I have not formatted said field as multiline, just a previous field.
    In order to proceed with formatting my date field in this case, I have to enter formatting, and turn multiline ON, then OFF. Then I can go back to date formatting without issue. The same problem will occur multiple times per document if I…

  16. Bug Report - JavaScript Editor - TAB key to move text over exits the Editor

    Bug Report - In JavaScript, it's common practice to format the code to make it more readable by using the TAB key to indent text. This has worked fine in all previous versions of Adobe Acrobat that I've used. However, in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, pressing the TAB key moves the text to the right once, as it should, but then the focus moves to the OK button to close the Editor. The focus should stay in the Editor so TAB can be pressed again to move the text further to the right. It is EXTREMELY inconvenient to have to…

    When I try to save a document after editing the form; I get a document cannot save, try saving under a different file name. Then it automatically deletes my document and goes right into my trash. When I try to retore and open the document it then gives me an error "There was an error opening this document. Access denied." but I could open the document on the drive online. This is frustrating as I am always organizing documents and if I can't be saving if I organize a page it will take me time to keep going in my…

  18. Allow users to change default settings for ALL form field properties

    It would be an amazing time-saver if we were able to change all default settings for field properties, i.e. type and size of font for each field or all fields, type and size of radio buttons and checkboxes, etc. This would make me -- and many other users -- much less irritable when I have to create forms.

  19. Set Printable Fields When Setting Visibility

    I am working on an icon dropdown menu using show/hide form fields and I would like to suggest adding printability to actions. I have some fields that are just intended to get the end user to their desired icon and should never be printed but once the buttons cycle through all the options, everything becomes printable instead of retaining the print property that was initially assigned.

  20. more options needed for collecting signatures

    When designing new fillable forms the signature fields should allow the designer more options and the ability to specify defaults. For example, I am creating a pdf fillable form using Adobe Acrobat DC Pro to replace a form that had been printed blank. Then customer using an ink pen would write on the printed form and sign the form at the bottom on the signature line. The completed form would then be processed by a clerk who would key the hand written information and scan the completed and signed form to store with the customer records. I can do everything…
