  1. Distiller: moveto the currentpoint results in a continuation of current sub-path, not a new sub-path

    In Distiller XI Pro 11.0.20 (28.03.2017), distill the following:

    %!PS
    /StrokeCode {1 setlinejoin gsave 0 setlinecap 24 setlinewidth 0 setgray stroke grestore 1 setlinecap 9.6 setlinewidth 1 setgray stroke} def
    144 72 moveto 144 144 2 copy 72 144 curveto
    72 144 moveto 144 144 2 copy 144 72 curveto
    StrokeCode
    showpage

    The moveto should start a new sub-path; display of that point should be determined by setlinecap not by setlinejoin. Alas, Distiller causes it to be determined by setlinejoin.

        Thanks for your feedback. Can you please elaborate on the problem you are facing?
        1. Are you working in Acrobat/Reader?
        2. Do you want an option to remove watermarks from an un-signed PDF document or from a signed PDF?
        3. Do you want to remove watermarks from PDFs you created or the documents you have received from others?

      • Crashes trying to bring panels to second monitor.

        Acrobat DC on an iMac with 4k retina display with a second monitor attached.
        When I try to bring a panel, such as the Pan & Zoom panel, onto the second monitor, first of all, it doesn't show up on the second panel. I moved it off the first monitor and the part that should show up on the 2nd monitor doesn't show up.

        When I move the pane fully onto the 2nd monitor, instantly Adobe Acrobat DC crashes.

        • Replace the word emit with omit.

          In advanced printer settings, when selecting a color to exclude from printing (tiny printer icons next to cyan, magenta, yellow, and black color blocks), please change the word emit with omit. Very different meanings.

            • Distiller: charpath … clip … stroke does not honour clip

              Distiller XI Pro 11.0.20 (28/03/2017) does not honour the ‘clip’ in the following:

              %!PS

              charpath

              • Clearer communication

                Adobe newsletter touting availability of Compare feature doesn't mention this is a Pro-only feature. The link from the article lists step-by-step instructions for using this cool feature never once mentioning that it's only available for Pro version. The screencap shows Pro but it is tiny font and very easy to miss.
                This required an investment by me and your customer support to resolve this. Better communication on your end about who has access to your features is a good thing.

                            This is a bug report.
                            I used Adobe Pro DC to encrypt documents for emailing to outside agencies among other things. Today, I discovered after sending a document to a co-worker for review, the default PDF reader on Windows allows access without the password required... simply by hitting the cancel options. I spoke with the Adobe Pro help line for an hour today and they asked me to write this report. The application used is called Windows reader, when opened you cannot print or edit but you can view the document without any obstacles, I was also able to take…

                                I had been using the trial version for Adobe acrobat pro dc and really liked the feature where when i was using the program on my surface pro it automatically detected that i was using the microsoft pen and i could just write on the pdf's. I purchased the student version of the program and when i went to do the same thing and it did not work. I contacted your customer service and the person said the feature was not available on the version i purchased and that i would have to buy a subscription to get that feature.…

                                • The relates to a thread in your online enquirer forum titled 'Why does "Use Current Properties as New Default" do nothing!?'.

                                  It would be very helpful (and some may say essential) if we could set a default font for your form wizard when it creates text fields. Converting word.docs for form is great using the wizard but then we have to go back and change the font size (and other settings for text fields). This makes the task much longer to do. With the ability to set default settings it would cut down this process and close a potential gap that a competitor of yours may exploit!

                                    • Bug with % symbols in named destinations

                                      When entering a named destination (for linking to within a PDF), it's impossible to enter a percentage sign ("%", U+0025). The symbol simply disappears from the name once entered.

                                      It's possible it's being misinterpreted as a formatting specifier in a printf call (or something similar).

                                      Steps to reproduce:
                                      1. Open a document and select "Edit PDF"
                                      2. Click the bullseye-icon in the left-most pane ("Destinations")
                                      3. Click "Create New Destination"
                                      4. Type "Bug%Test" and press Enter
                                      5. Note the result is "BugTest" instead of the expected "Bug%Test"

                                      Here's an animated screen-capture (which was too large to upload as an attachment): …

                                      • This is for LiveCycle Designer 11, No option for it in list

                                        Please incorporate the function for using "hidden", so hiding Pages for Adobe Static form's PDF can be used. Currently you can only use this option for Adobe Dynamic xml form's, This will allow users to be able to use commenting. ie. "Stamps" when extended to Adobe reader, Save option is used.

                                        • Digital Signature from Page Template

                                          When a page is spawned from a page template that contains a digital signature, the digital signature field does not retain the set "signed" action. (I.E. mark field as read only: all fields), or a script to be executed.
