  1. Wrong interpretation of EPS / AI / SVG file when creating a PDF from Word.

    See the attached files for more info, the dev team surely has more knowledge on the file structures than I do, and the parser for whatever format is involved.

    I have an Illustrator file, created out of an old EPS one. Works fine in Illustrator and everything, exporting to PNG, for example, is no problem.

    However if the drawing gets pasted in Word (365, 64-bit 16.0.14228.20288) and one tries to create a PDF out of it using the COM Add-in the drawing isn't interpreted correctly leading to a garbled mess.

    Office's internal PDF exporter does a better job, but you…

  3. Zoom Tool: Please add additional default zoom percentages

    Please add additional default zoom percentages for 15" and 17" laptop screens. BACKGROUND: As a college student, I read a lot of academic articles and PDF textbooks. However, I get a little irritated every time that I have to manually type in a zoom percentage of 250% or 270% because the default percentages jump from 200% to 300% (which is TOO much)! I know. It's a menial request. But it would make a HUGE difference for someone in my situation. Thank you!

  6. Convert highlights to redaction

    In order to facilitate the creation of faux-redacted documents for internal stakeholders (i.e., it looks like the redacted document that we will send out, but it contains the redacted information for future reference), highlights should be easily convertible to redactions.

  7. Links Broken after uploading to Adobe Sign

    I have a PDF that conforms to the 1.6 pdf standard. The pdf contains 4 links that link to other pages within the same document. When the document is uploaded to Adobe Sign and sent for signature and re-downloaded, there are 2 problems with it:

    1. The number of annotation links is doubled.
    2. The initial links are all broken.

    I have attached a copy of the original document and the document after its uploaded to adobe sign and sent for signature.

    Repro Steps:
    1. Open "Initial.pdf" and use the "request a signature" menu to send it to Adobe Sign.
    2. Send…

  8. Crash when closing multiple PDF windows from the same file with comment pane open

    Found a reproducible crash in Adobe Reader DC -both free and Pro version (likely 100% occurrence in core i7 U series 7th, 8th gen, Xeon Gold, AMD Athlon):

    Prerequisite:
    Under PREFERENCES>GENERAL, "Open documents as new tabs in the same window (require relaunch)" is UNCHECKED. This means every time I open a new PDF file, it will appear as a new window instead of nested tabs.
    - Opening a PDF file with highlighter markups
    - Opening a comment pane of that file
    - Then opening a new PDF window (from the same file): Window>New window
    - Opening another PDF file or…

  9. When deleting comments, the acceptence/rejection of the comment stays in the document

    Hello,

    When deleting comments in a PDF-document in Adobe Acrobat Pro, the comments themselves are indeed removed, but if these comments were once accepted or rejected, this information stays around in the PDF document. Adobe Acrobat Pro know to ignore it and doesn't show it, but when opening that document on iOS for example, that information is still shown as some sort of comment, which is impossible to find (and thus remove) in Adobe Acrobat, because Adobe ignores these.

    This is highly undesirable. Can this be fixed please?

    Thank you,
    Best regards,
    Jeroen

    - possibility to edit the size of the date,
    - possibility to change the format to dd/mm/yyyy
    - possibility to change the separators to dd.mm.yyyy

  11. Congratulations to Adobe for turning what was an excellent software package into a useless crock of s**t.

    why doesnt this open a complete document any more?
    why does it stall and its only offering is "not responding"?
    does creative cloud have so many bugs that it has to update itself every other day?

    I'm now looking for other pdf software because sick of the frustration

  12. Bug Report: Split PDF function not working

    When I use the split PDF, I select split by "Top level bookmarks" and "The same Folder Selected at Start" for "Target Folder" and "Use bookmark names for file names" under "File Labeling" under "Output Options". Then I click "Ok" and click on "Split".

    I receive an error message that says "The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder."

    However, the file is NOT ready-only and no one else has the file open because it's saved in a local folder on my computer's…

  13. Safari won't open PDF in Acrobat

    MacOS Big Sur 11.6 (20G165)
    Safari Version 15.0 (16612.1.29.41.4, 16612)
    Adobe Acrobat DC 21.007.20096

    Safari no longer supports opening PDFs in Acrobat, rather than the browser. A high-level tech support at Adobe screen-shared on my computer and couldn't find any way to set it so that PDFs would open in Acrobat. Help files on Adobe's help site refer to an older version of Safari, which had preferences different than the current version (see attached screen shot of current Safari preferences).

  14. Bug Report: PDF Forms

    I have been marketing my PDF forms with many graphics and buttons for about 8 years. The bugs caused by the switch to DC years ago was not backwards compatible—but eventually fixed.

    The latest update to DC is acting very oddly. There has always been a lag for screen redraw but now my machine is “bouncing” and it takes several minutes to enter text in a simple line with 4 fields.

    I rebuilt the form with less graphics with no luck. I’m working on a Mac with the newest iOS and newest version of DC. Any suggestions?

  15. Unexplained error

    Popup reads "adobe acrobat dc cannot etc. you need to download a copy of adobe acrobat etc. then you get two options either quit or repair and download new acrobat. Repair does not get rid of the error. So I now choose quit. I recently downloaded and reinstalled acrobat dc, and still get the error, usually after a cloud update

  17. Bug Report - Update 2021.007.10096 is not working

    Update for version 2021.007.10096 is not working. I've tried it three times through the Acrobet Updater and once through the Creative Cloud updater. Each time it ends with: Error.

  19. A simple shortcut for setting 'Complete'-status on a comment in Acrobat

    For a PDF with 50+ review comments it would be nice to have a shortcut for changing the status to 'Complete', instead of right clicking every boks. Same for the new 'share for review' feature.
