  1. Can't save Extracted page

    Working on a MAC (mac OS High Sierra v 10.13.2 updated 12.14.17) in Acrobat Pro DC v2018.009.20050
    I think this problem started right after OS update.
    Open a PDF document, extract a page, and now want to save that page.
    A Save As PDF window opens but it is empty and you can't do anything. If you try it too many times it will lock up acrobat and you have to force quit. Does the same thing if you want to do a save as to an existing file and rename etc. Screenshot attached.

      • Better support for VDI/Virtualized environments

        Now that users need to authenticate towards the Creative Cloud it should be possible to be able to roll out Adobe products on VDI environments utilzing Non Persistent Linked clones.

        The problem is that Adobe still uses the machine ID in the licensing. In a non persistent environment the machine ID changes each time the user logs on. Instead Adobe should re-authenticate the user and activate the Adobe products each time a user log on. Information about the users credentials should be stored in the roaming part of the userprofile.

        • Problems with Pitstop tools after updating Acrobat DC

          After an update of Acrobat DC has been installed on our computers:
          the PitStop Pro toolbars had disappeared and
          the PitStop Pro selection tool frequently becomes unresponsive

          Windows specifications: Windows 10 Pro / version 1709 / OS Build 16299.98
          Pitstop specifications: Enfocus Pitstop Pro 17 Build 786028
          Acrobat specifications: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - version 2018.009.20050

          Are those issues known by you and do you have a solution for those problems ?

          • Signing in is an arduous process which doesn't work more often than not. I have since found I need to close and open multiple times.

            I get the confirmation licensing message after logging in, but it always stays as 'log in' on the top right instead of my name. Restarting and clicking the login box sometimes fixes it. Longterm issue.

            • application hang when closing OLE window from PowerBuilder 12.5 application

              Using Adobe Acrobat XI 11.0.23 (Acrobat, not Reader), our PowerBuilder 12.5 application hangs for 8-10 seconds when an OLE PDF window is closed. The same delay is seen with Reader DC 17.012.20093 and all subsequent versions but is not seen with Reader DC 17.009.20058 and older, or Reader XI 11.0.23 and older.

              There seems to be some delay in the destruction of the OLE PDF viewer object; the delay can even be seen when closing a window containing an OLE PDF viewer from PowerBuilder 12.5 IDE.

                  • Text call out tool properties not set as default

                    Text call out tool issue . After commenting on a document , the color of the call out box is changes to blue and this property made "default" through " make current property default " option. This change is valid as long as acrobat pro application remains open . When the application is restarted , the text call out box reverts back to the original properties i.e. white in color . This problem comes for the text call out tool only and other drawings markups retain their set properties even after restarting the application.

                    • cannot print single pages when in comparison mode

                      Cannot print single pages when in comparison mode; only prints the summary page. It would be helpful to print single pages so I have a record of what still needs to be fixed in my document, since you cannot save the newer doc version as a separate document with notes intact. At least I would have a hardcopy to refer to.

                      • cannot save newer version of document when in comparison mode

                        When in comparison mode, I am making sticky notes on the newer version. You cannot save that newer version as a separate document, so it cannot be viewed by others with my notes intact, and cannot be used in next version comparison mode to make sure all changes were fixed. A major flaw.

                        • Windows metadata tag

                          The Windows properties metadata tag though not used by Adobe PDF cannot be added or changed. For other files as .jpg, MS Office this field is available in Windows Explorer and can be edited. I wish Adobe do the same with PDF in order to allow files to be searched by tags.

                                If I do a control F search for a word, get a hit in the middle of the document, say, but then want to conduct a search from the beginning, there is no way to do that. I can manually move up to the beginning, even click within the document at the beginning, but the next search will still be from where the last hit was. This is true in both pro and reader and is, to my mind, a bug/design flaw. One should be able to search from wherever one wants in a document, not just from where the…

                                • Bug: Acrobat file created by InDesign export cannot be reduced in size; hangs Acrobat

                                  A PDF which was created via an InDesign export, cannot be reduced in size in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. It hangs Acrobat during the Reduce in Size option.

                                  I have isolated the cause of the problem to the final letter "x" that was added at the end of the text in the Indesign CC file.. I will try to see if I can attach that file. I have attached a ZIP-compressed Adobe InDesign CC 2018 package. I have also attached the PDF file.

                                  This problem is keeping me from reducing in size a very large file.

                                    • Post From to Social Media Button

                                      Add a functionality option to form buttons that would allow for posting to social media (Facebook, Twitter etc.). This would allow the user to post an image of the form to social media (without the button showing) This would allow designers to create "form templates" that would allow the users even in Reader to post to social media.

                                      • Distiller does not show all presets and not sorted

                                        I have several settings/presets saved in the folder:

                                        /Users/saschabucher/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PDF/Settings

                                        But only some of them are showing up in the Distiller settings dropdown where you can set the preset. The ones showing up are not even in the alphabetic order. This is maybe related to the issue in InDesign where the script panel is also not anymore ordered.

                                        This is may just cased by OSX High Sierra and SSD.

                                          Hi,

                                          Thanks for your valuable feedback.
                                          For Distiller setting dropdown not in alphabetic order we have logged a bug in our database.
                                          And Setting which are not showing in dropdown this is not reproducible at our end. Can you please try reinstalling and updating Acrobat if its not updated to latest version? Let us know if this issue is still there.

                                          Best Regards!

                                        • Acrobat DC is so horrible that I will toss it for a pirate copy

                                          It is dead slow! I have an 64bit Windows 10 laptop and it takes almost two minutes to exit it! I will toss it for a pirate copy without cloud options.
                                          It sucks big time.
