  3. I build all our business processing forms and agreements in LiveCycle Designer. Once the document is set up, I save the file. I then do a 'Save as Other-->Reader Extended PDF-->Enable More Tools (including form fill-in and save)'. This allows the end user to open the PDF in Adobe Reader, fill in the form fields, and save the completed form to their computer. This week, when attempting to do what I have been doing the past several years with this 'Save as Other' function, I get an error message "This document could not be Reader Enabled."

    I sincerely hope this…

  4. It should be possible to scale images proportional and scale them over the whole frame in forms. This is called 'Autofit' in indesign for example.
    See also the screenshot attached. Frame should be completly filled (left) but proportional (right). This would be really helpful.

  5. MacBook Pro: Chip Apple M1 Pro, Memory 16 GB, MacOS Ventura 13.0.1 Acrobat has a particular performance drop when using the form boxes. At my work we are provided with a PDF file with fill boxes we need to use to write our weekly plans. On my Windows based computer everything runs as expected but when working from my MacBook Pro there is a serious performance degrading glitch. Whenever I select on a box to write in, I notice the entire PDF file lags and has difficulty scrolling or registering actions easily. Severely slowing my workflow. Only when I click…

  6. As folks fill out a web form, the additional step of having to click a link in your email to finish the submission is a pain and I would prefer being to turn that off.

  7. Reader version 2022.003.20263 (latest as of 11/10/22) Emailing does not work

    We have a fillable PDF form that emails the data. The form has been working for years. Uninstalling Reader and installing an older version makes the emailing feature work again. Updating to the latest version, makes it stop working.

    The email preference setting in Reader is set to a Gmail account. With Reader version 2021.001.20135 after clicking the submit button a browser window opens and allows you to log into the Gmail account and Reader creates the message in the Drafts folder (as it should). Upgrade to Reader version…

  9. In a 100 page document there is a need to have many fillable forms with submit buttons. Now when you click submit, the entire 100 page document and the fillable form is submitted. Separate fillable forms need to be submitted individually and not include the entire 100 pages.
    Also, the clear button clears all the forms, not just the selected form.

  11. Hello, I am writing this because of my like for adobe as a company normally i wouldn't bother giving feedback of this nature only I know Adobe might use this info well.

    While trying to use PDF merger as a part of Adobe Acrobat i found it difficult to navigate and overall a little laborious.
    i instead ended up using a competitor instead maybe, it brought me through the sign in process 2-3 times (frustrating) . I couldn't find how to download my file after i merged. used it two days ago and worked immediately. I presume its because i…

  12. My form uses javascript to perform simple calculations and exclusion of checkboxes that otherwise would not be compatible with radiobuttons. It works fine on all bowsers except Safari. Javascript is enabled! So, what finicky part of Apple is treating Acrobat as “noncompliant” and not allowing it to execute? Is there some Document javascript I can add, or perhaps some Document Metadata that allows the Acrobat javascript to execute?

    These are both the latest versions so dont refer me to some outdated references on plugins that no longer apply.

  13. It would be nice to have a formula like this.getField("FieldName").exist, that returns a true or false depending on weather or not the field exists

  14. combining E Signed PDFs, You give an instruction message: Go To Settings to preserve the E-Signatures. Problem is, there is NO SETTING button or Option. Fix your message with the correct place to go. OR, How about this idea...Instead of the stupid message, give us a Box or link to click that actually IS the Settings Area or Fixes the issue you are describing.

  15. The frame that pops up when editing forms (at the right) is a fixed width. Which means, if you have long field names, you have to scroll horizontally back and forth to review and edit.

    Would be great if this frame was made adjustable!

  16. It would be great to offer true PDF Web Forms that look like the actual document such as an employment application online that can be linked to or embedded in a website for the public to fill out in the browser and submit. Instead of using an HTML form, they would see a true form fillable pdf that they could fill out and submit. Essentially merging the paper presentation of a PDF with an HTML form to run on websites.

  17. PDF form fields have a dialog box that allows you to enter specific size and location parameters. Text boxes should have the same functionality. Dragging text boxes around and eyeballing the alignment is unacceptable. I need to be able to type in the exact distance from the top (or bottom), and left side, as well as the exact height and width of the text box. This is in line with every other GUI form tool I've used since 1996. I don't expect Acrobat to be a full composition program, but precision placement of text isn't too much to ask.

  18. Problem: When adding calculations to a document, the checkboxes in that same document flash a keyboard when checked. Without the calculations, the checkboxes do not do this. Document 4 does not have calculations. 4C has calculations. You can see the difference in the behavior of the checkboxes.

  19. BUG:
    After using form field auto detection, the program crashes to desktop (without any errors) as soon as any field is clicked on or when attempting to add a new field. Leaving the Prepare Form tool works as intended; the crash only happens when attempting to work further with the tool. Leaving and reentering the tool still causes crashes.

    WORKAROUND:
    The only way I've found to prevent this is to use the "Export Data" tool (the .fdf export one). Once the data is exported, things seem to work fine, without even requiring a re-import or anything like that.

  20. Always use a professional PDF merge tool for a risk-free and efficient PDF merge process. It is the most reliable and advanced solution to merge multiple PDF files into bulk. Users can easily and quickly perform the bulk operation with an option to save the attachments separately. PDF merge tool maintains high data security and integrity throughout the process. Users are also allowed to merge encrypted PDF files without any data alteration. Moreover, they can provide the custom folder name with the location of the resultant file.
