  1. Named Destinations

    Please, add methods in the IAC interface for OLE and/or the JavaScript API to CREATE or ADD new named destinations with name, page number and rectangle coordinates of the destination. Also please add a method to associate the named destination to bookmarks. I have all my source data in Excel, so I'm using VBA.

  2. Bug: Can't open PDF from ActiveX control

    The latest release of Acrobat Reader DC crashes when a PDF is accessed through an ActiveX control, such as Microsoft's CHM viewer. This has drastic effects on several developers who depend on such a workflow. More explanation in a forum post https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/acropdfimpl64-dll-crashes-when-pdf-is-accessed-via-activex-webbrowser-control-x64/m-p/12133227

  6. AutoSave

    You should be able to see if Autosave is active and toggle it on and off like we can in M365 applications.

  7. Open PDF-Files via MS-excel (2019) Hyperlink

    I have a lot of PDF- files in portrait format eg. bills.
    When I doubleklick these files with MS-file-Explorer then Acrobat shows these in a standard Window. When I use Excel hyperlinks to show these files they maximize the window. This makes no sence with a widescreen monitor. So I have to dobleklick at the upper border to show it in the way I like. I didn't find any way to solve that problem. When I install F...t-Reader instead, It works fine.
    So I don't think that this is an Excel based problem.
    I think it's very easy for you…

  8. Subscription Usage Report

    Good morning

    To ensure we are utilising our subscription and ensure users are making use of their licence I understand there is no usage reporting available i.e. when a user authenticates as they use Adobe DC Pro.

    Can I submit this is as a product request please? I appreciate it might not be Adobe's interest as this will enable subscribers to manage licence assignment more efficiently but this would be a great product feature.

    Thank you.

  9. Flattening a PDF for print

    I'm getting no sensible suggestions on how to flatten a file for printing. This is one of the simplest and most basic of needs for the printing industry and I'm just staggered at the lack of clarity everywhere I look and whenever I ask. I work in Word to create artwork then convert this to a PDF but the existing pathway to flattening the file does not work and creates a chaotic image with bits missing and colours changed. How do I flatten a PDF???

  10. Acrobat DC Bug Leaking Handles

    I'm using windows 7 and 10 and Acrobat DC

    Bug: Windows task manager (Details tab, with "Handles" column enabled" ) reports that the Acrobat process is now using more than 1 million handles.

    I just updated to DC 21.005.20048 after discovering the million handles.

    I am trying to reproduce the handle leak by starting from a fresh session of Acrobat. I usually have many big PDFs open and CTRL+F search them regularly (clicking forwards/next and backwards/previous)

    Here is a medium sized one from archive.org

    https://archive.org/download/n08ontariosession31onta/n08ontariosession31onta.pdf

    When I search it for common words (the, if, ...) the handle count does increase.…

  11. Video not working on Acrobat DC

    Tools for Rich Media work fine for development when we add a video. It fails when we try to view the video added on Acrobat DC for Windows.

    Acrobat Reader can play the video fine on both the PC and Mac

    Acrobat DC Pro on the Mac version # 2021.005.20048 can create and play the video correctly.

    Acrobat DC Pro on Windows can create the PDF with Rich Media tools but it can not play the video. It may crash or it may do nothing. No video can be seen. I tried it both playing in the document or in…

  12. Cannot copy some Japanese characters

    Copying some Japanese characters with Acrobat Pro DC and Reader for Mac (2021.005.20048) on Big Sur 11.4 does not work, while it is OK with Reader for Windows (2021.005.20048).

    Please try this PDF for example.
    https://www.pref.gifu.lg.jp/uploaded/attachment/252764.pdf

    Copy and paste of "美濃加茂市" becomes "美濃加 市".

  13. No option here to report bugs on software other than Acrobat. My bug is in Photoshop.

    The "lighting effects" filter no longer works! What's wrong?

  14. PDF Document Scraper (make a csv or json file from a pdf containing repeating data)

    make a csv or json file from a pdf containing repeating data

    how many times have you wanted to data mine a pdf document to put it in another presentation, a mysql database etc?

    here is a similar idea that should be integrated right into Acrobat DC ..

  15. Why does basic functionality in Acrobat Pro DC cause 11+ bloatware processes to run in the background?

    I finally bit the bullet and started paying for Acrobat, but the incredible number of mysterious background processes named things like "Creative Cloud Helper," "CCXProcess," "Core Sync," CCLibrary," "Adobe Desktop Service," and not one but 4 apps named "Core Sync Helper" are making me reconsider. They have worsened my battery life and I have security concerns about these ambiguously—named apps constantly dancing up and down my Activity Monitor. I refuse to believe they are necessary to view a PDF. I run MacOS Big Sur.

  16. Your product is killing my battery

    How do I kill all these programs running in the background and killing my battery even when not using your software. I hate to get rid of your program entirely but you are making my computer unusable.
    I have to go through and force quit all of these every time I turn on the computer, and some of them will refuse to stay quit, they come back on like some kind of malware

  17. Action Wizard skips the next document after pop up message

    I'm running Action Wizard to fixup several PDFs. When an error message pops up, I click OK to dismiss it. Then I click Start to resume the Action Wizard. The Wizard skips over the next document in the list and adds a check mark as though it processed. When the summary report displays, that document is missing as though it wasn't ever in the "Files to be processed:"

  18. Save all tabs at once

    Wish there was a feature to save all tabs at once. Currently you have to save each tab separately by being on that tab. It would be more efficient if this feature were to be implemented. Thank you.

  19. "Hover" event on buttons sometimes remains after mouse cursor leaves

    Bug related to viewing interactive PDFs.

    1. Make a PDF with a button in InDesign. Give it a different appearance when hovered by the mouse.
    2. Make multiple buttons like this next to each other (touching side-by-side) to make the problem much easier to recreate.
    3. Export as interactive PDF.

    When viewing in Acrobat DC, move the cursor accross the buttons. They show the "hover" appearance while the cursor is over a button, but if the cursor moves from one button to the next the appearance on the previous button often tends to "stick", so you end up with multiple buttons showing the…

  20. Acrobat Pro Home Screen

    Please allow the user to turn off the home screen, so that we do not have to close it after every single PDF we look at. At the bare minimum allow us to use a keyboard shortcut to close the home screen. The fact that I have to actively close this needless window every single time makes it twice as annoying.
