  1. designer's pdf inspector

    It would be great to have a pdf inspection mode to easily select items in the pdf and get printing specs on it like the ink type (pms, cmyk) and color used (pms 281, C100M60Y0K6), the font, the resolution of an image as dpi at the current used size, etc.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback. We have recorded it in our database.

    However,Before printing you can check default value through:
    Go to ‘PrintProduction>outputPreview’
    Select ObjectInspector from preview drop down and you can check default value.
    Hope this will serve you purpose.
    Please keep updating.

    Best Regards!

  2. Combine Files and Organize Pages converts some text into block shapes

    When I use the Combine Files or Organize Pages Tool, some text in the PDF files, in which all text had displayed correctly, is converted to square block shapes. The problem seems to correlate with the size of the combined file. As file size increases, more text is converted to square block shapes.

    Thanks lee for reporting. We are also trying to reproduce the issue on our end, meanwhile it would be great if you can attach the indesign CC file.

  5. Inability to file pdf files in alphabetical order

    I have recently upgraded my Mac operating system to Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.1. Since doing this, I am unable to use the Mac Finder in alphabetical order to drag and drop / file pdf's from Adobe Acrobat Pro onto my Mac flash storage (the folders are no longer in alphabetical order and are displayed in a random mixed order). The same applies when you print to pdf and then try and file on Finder.

    I would note that Finder itself accessed directly (i.e. not through Adobe) works as it is designed to and you can select any of…

    Hi,
    How files/folder are sorted in any finder window is solely the business of your operating system and not Actobat. Are you facing this just with Adobe PDFs?

  6. view setting in organise pages


    1. While using Organise pages – Tool bar, we cannot have single full page view, as it was there earlier. Maximum zoom is 2 page view, even if there is a single page in the document. Also the zoom control on toolbar does not work for it, only the slider at the right bottom corner works.

  7. Working with sticky notes

    My problem is that when I try to print comment sticky notes on a parallel page, after the first day's work, when I start up the next day, I can edit with sticky notes, but cannot make them open on the parallel page. The first day's sticky notes are there nicely, but the second day's will not open on the parallel page once entered on the main text page.

    Hi we are not able to reproduce the problem in house.
    Can you elaborate little more here and also please provide the version of Acrobat you are using.

  10. Feature request

    When you insert a page into a document, make the default directory for the document to be inserted the same as the document it is being inserted into. Or allow the user to set preferences that include this.

  11. Logical presentation of figures

    Hello

    When generating separate PDF files from a PDF with multiple pages (in my case a 240-page catalog), a number (or folio) is assigned to each page as .... x for units, ..XX for tens, .*** for hundreds, etc.
    Which gives: 1, 10, 100, etc.

    Is it possible for Acrobat to name pages rather like this: 000X, 00XX, 0XXX?
    Which would give: 0001, 0010, 0100, etc.

    List files for a Windows user do not appear in logical order and the user is forced to rename the PDFs by adding zeros in front of the units and tens (a time-consuming job).

  12. Conversion of RGB/Spot to CMYK

    PDF does not finish converting Spot / RGB colors to CMYK/
    This is when using preflight fixes or convert color under Print Production Tools.
    Acrobat freezes most of the time, or when I try to Save as.

  15. inserting a blank page throughout a document at specified increments.

    In a large PDF document, having the capability to insert a blank page or a specified page at certain intervals throughout the document would be a great time saver.

  16. Exporting files to Word automatically defaults to "Do not spell check" .

    When exporting a PDF to Word, the files automatically default to Turn Spell Check off. This has caused numerous errors in my documents as spell check is an necessary function. This is under the Review tab, language Function in Word. I don't understand why Adobe would default to that. It did not used to do that. At the very least, you should offer the option to the individual doing to conversion to have the choice in their setup.

  17. AdobeSign <input> fields need aria-label attributes for ADA compliance

    Forms generated using AdobeSign are not in compliance with ADA accessibility standards. Need an option when creating input fields to add an 'aria-label' attribute so that the fields can be easily identified by disabled / visually impaired users. Additionally, the radio buttons generated by the tool should be grouped with a <fieldset> or <legend> tag and utilize aria-label or aria-labelledby so that the buttons can be properly associated with each other and distinguished from other radio button groups.

    Here is an example of an input field generated by an AdobeSign form:

    <input type="text" name="Custom Field 3" value="" aria-required="true" tabindex="0" data-tabindex="4"…

  19. Crash Crash Crash it is like watching a NASCAR Martinsville Race.

    I do not know what your programmers did to the Adobe products in the 2018 version but all Acrobat and Illustrator keep doing is crashing my computer. I reinstalled 2017 Illustrator but there is not a rollback for Acrobat. Please tell your programmers that "Just because you can does not mean you should"

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing, next time you see Acrobat crash, can you please save the crash logs and attach them here, it will help us to narrow down the issue.

  20. Acrobat keeps closing for no reason and it is NOT autosaving my files

    Acrobat keeps closing for no reason and it is NOT autosaving my files.I already pay a subscription fee every month and you want ANOTHER $80 to help me. I didn't choose to close the program I didn't have a choice and charging $80 for something that is YOUR fault is daylight robbery
