  1. Flush "Recognize Text Command" when "<>Ignore future errors in this document" is checked

    Recognize Text feature encounters errors on each page. Error reads: Acrobat could not replace the current page with the new recognized page because of the following error: This operation is not permitted This could be due to either a low memory situation or low disk space <>Ignore future errors in this document <OK>

    If I click <x>Ignor fute erros in this document, it still stops on every page of the document, even if the document is 100 pages long and requires this error to be OK'ed for each page before the process will stop. clicking the "Cancel" button has no…

  2. Please provide support for SE Asian Language for for OCR!

    Please provide support for SE Asian Language for OCR. I have many customers that work in a large government agency that has requested this. Most notable now for Khmer language support.

  3. scanning

    I normally have to scan 5 to 8 pages with OCR using the feeder on an HP9015E printer. Why not have a one page setup and then one scan button.

    Try it sometime yourself. It is a real mess especially with the auto bed option instead of a setup for the feeder.

  4. OCR for very wide PDFs (J16, J24, J32, J40, J48)

    My industry has a need to perform OCR on very wide PDF. J16 is essentially two E-size drawings wide, and J48 is 6 E-size drawings wide.

    Today, Acrobat DC Pro (and its predecessor) give "Unknown error" when trying to do OCR on such a large PDF.

    I am asking Nitro and Adobe to enhance their tools to support such wide PDFs, so OCR can work.

    Thanks

  5. custom settings

    Just got Adobe Pro DC this week. Try as I might, I can't set Custom Settings for following reoccurring Scanning to OCR needs. 1. paper size, 2. Black & White, 3. Feeder - Multi-page. Currently, after each page, I have to go and select 1. scan another page, 2. set Black & What, 3. Page Size, etc. there should be a way that I can place up to 25-50 pages in my feeder, set to scan and then step away from the scanner, My Adobe 8 Professional, which I used for more than 10 years successfully, allowed me to do…

  7. Memory Leak in OCR feature

    There seems to be a memory leak in the OCR feature. If you try to OCR a large (say 500+ page) scanned text my computer alerts that I've run out of application memory (see attached photo). This is bonkers and needs to be fixed! You've got to memcheck this or something...

  10. Scan & OCR not functioning

    After setting up to Scan & OCR using an EPSON Perfection 600 Photo scanner, I clicked Scan. I am trying to scan a simple medical receipt, one page only.
    The Adobe Acrobat DC app did not respond.
    I then clicked Cancel, but got an error message indicating Scan was in progress.
    I tried to Quit the Acrobat DC app, but got a similar error message indicating Scan was in progress.
    It seems I will have to Force Quit to close the app and try to scan with another app, from Epson.

  11. Bug by showing PDFs by opening with UiPath

    Iam scanning PDFs with Screen Reader and sometimes when my Program in UiPath opens a PDF_Ducument in Adobe it shows only black and white bars. It is clearly a bug, u cant detect any PDF Document. Its is pretty annoying to work with this bug, exactly because it comes only sometimes and i cant figure out why. Adobe also is wrong formatted and there arent any menus to interact with... It would be so nice if this is fixed, or anybody tells my why this happens. I cant upload the picture idk why

  13. OCR using AI

    The existing OCR function can create really strange interpretations on letters that otherwise look pretty clear to the human eye. Would propose that the OCR use AI language functionality support to encourage higher accuracy in translating the images to text.

  15. Acrobat Pro DC crashes while scanning

    I am currently running Windows 10 on a HP Laptop and every time I try to use Acrobat Pro DC to scan a document it crashes. I've checked for updates but it shows that all updates are applied. Can someone tell me what is going on?

  16. Hotfolder OCR

    Acrobat should have the functionality to automate processes like OCR with a hotfolder. Let's say you scanned smth, the file arrives at your selected folder which is a hotfolder -> Acrobat should now perform an OCR without any further input of the user.

  19. Accented characters missing in OCR scans

    OCR for languages with accents, such as French, would be drastically improved if the letters from that language, such as ç ê è à á, were included. Choosing a language-specific OCR does not make much sense when it doesn't include the letters from that language.

  20. Acrobat PRO 2020 - Running text recognition rotates random pages wrongly

    Acrobat PRO 2020 - Running text recognition rotates random pages wrongly

    We have testet and confirmed the problem does NOT exist in Adobe Acrobat 2017, but it does happen in Acrobat DC and Acrobat PRO 2020

    Due to company security policy we run offline versions of the software with local license verification.

    When doing OCR or Text recognition nomatter what we do, it randomly rotate pages during the scanning process. No matter what settings we set.
