  3. Edit text in document that has been deskewed

    Working with a document and need to 1) deskew 2) despeckle and 3) edit text. 1) Optimized with quality set to high, optimize images only if there is a reduction in size set to off, and object compression option set to retain existing; this straightened the document. 2) Used redact set to white fill no border to remove larger specks. 3) chose edit text and the document became skewed again! There is no reason for taking a tool that worked well to clean up scans in previous versions and making it impossible to use. Adobe is costing us more than…

  6. OCR Exclusion zones. (Prevent or remove OCR from regions)

    When using OCR on scanned documents, hand drawn images are confused for text and are reliably ruining the output PDFs. The easy fix would be to allow users to exclude "zones" (boxes) of the document from OCR scanning, OR allow users better tools to remove zones of detected text.

    As of current, there isn't any easy way of correcting OCR from scanning hundreds of nonexistent characters from drawings and images. If OCR has detected many characters on seperate lines, the user will need to painstakingly shift through each correction until the document is cleared of all errors.

    I'm quite confused…

  10. 1 click to scan

    I was able to create (using 3rd party tool) an icon on my desktop (Win 10) that would let me scan basic "letter, single-sided, auto-color, etc". It would do all the steps and the exit step would prompt for name and folder to save the file. YOU'VE TAKEN AWAY ALL OF THE <ctrl> SEQUENCES SO THIS CAN NO LONGER BE DONE. Plus the scan screen opens to the last settings SO THEY ALWAYS HAVE TO BE REVIEWED because occasionally I need to scan legal or double-sided, etc. Plus the stupid 2017 opens the last file and tries to append to…

  12. I created a multipage PDF from an HP scanner but only page shows in Acrobat DC

    I created a 2 page PDF using an HP Scanner. I saved the file as a PDF. If I open the PDF in Chrome or Edge, I can scroll to see both pages. But, if I open the PDF in Acrobat DC, only the first page shows and the page count shows 1 of 1. Any suggestions as to why?

  13. Confirmation box when OCR is complete

    I have a lot of documents to scan, save, and upload and I wish that Acrobat DC would put a little confirmation box so I can remember if I have performed the OCR already, because for some reason it is easy to forget and there seems to be no way to confirm the OCR has been performed and no way to set Acrobat to provide such confirmation.

  14. Please fix the deskew feature in Adobe Pro DC

    I used to deskew in Adobe Acrobat Pro whenever I OCR'ed a document. And the deskewing worked so well: every page would be rotated a tiny amount and usually the improvement was noticeable.

    In Adobe Acrobat DC (on macOS 10.15.7), the "Recognize Text" function no longer performs deskewing. So I OCR and deskew using the "Enhance" function under Scan & OCR:

    Scan & OCR > Enhance > Scanned Document > Deskew

    However it doesn't seem to work. Although the Deskew feature is turned on in Filters under Settings, when I run Enhance, it doesn't actually deskew. (And worse, unless I…

  15. Scanning UI Flow

    When scanning multiple pages, there should be another confirmation dialog after selecting 'Scan more pages (sheet n)' because it is unclear that the next page should be ready for scan before clicking the 'OK' button.

  16. Scan Page Size

    I am in the UK where the standard page size is A4 - longer than the US standard of 8.5x11 inches. Scanning has no way of explicitly setting the page size and it obviously defaults to 8.5x11 inches because the last portion of a document is cut off. This only happens in the Adobe App, so it isn't the scanner. There should be a way to set the page size so longer pages aren't cut off when scanned.

  17. Acrobat Pro needs a way to equalize the width of space characters

    In Acrobat Pro DC, I'd like a way to equalize the width of space characters. OCR results often give uneven spacing that needs cleaning up. I can reset the horizontal scaling and the character spacing using the "T" and "AV" options, but the width of space characters are not affected by that. The only workaround I've found for this is to copy the results to another application, and then back to Acrobat again, which seems inefficient.

  18. Bug report: Acrobat OCR generates buggy characters filled-in with black when rasterized.

    The OCR in Acrobat Pro DC on Mac sometimes generates buggy characters. They become filled-in with black depending on how the file is viewed. The attached file contains 6 isolated examples of these problem OCR characters. They look as expected when first viewed in Acrobat Pro DC, however if you zoom in by 600% or more, they suddenly become filled-in with black. The same problem occurs when printing the file, or viewing it in a web browser even without zooming in. This bug can be especially frustrating because you often don't see the problem until after you print the file.
