  2. Add auto-refresh (option) for externally modified PDF files

    When you work on presentation or anything else in another application (e.g. Keynote or PowerPoint) you can browse the final result of slides in PDF format by using Acrobat Reader. In this cases every time you export updated version of the PDF file you have to close the older version, and reopen the file. It's really annoying and takes a lot of time.

    I personally experience it while working with LaTeX that doesn't have a viewer. So, you quite often "export" to PDF and view via Acrobat. I have already seen other people that look for this feature and gave…

  3. Virtual Printer for Mac - So you can print customised page sizes A1 A2 etc from all software

    Virtual Printer for Mac
    So you can print customised page sizes A1 A2 etc from all software
    Used to be a feature but has been removed.
    is still a feature on PC.
    Other apps are available such as PDF Printer from the App Store that do this.

    Need to either have Adobe PDF appear as a printer, or be able to adjust settings under the create pdf button, before it creates the pdf.

    currently you can only create a pdf that matches the same size as the document. so you can't print an A4 document onto an A3, A2, A1…

  4. Add column sorting control on Open window for large SharePoint folders, show more columns

    Make it possible to easily keep track of which documents in a large document folder (with many items) have been reviewed, and make it possible to show more columns on the window that opens when you open a folder in SharePoint On Line so that when redacting large document libraries it is easy to see where one left off.

  5. Interrupted footage from adobe premeire to after effect is wrong

    Every time I try to take interrupted footage from premiere pro into after affects through the dynamic linking feature the timestamp of the video from premiere off when i view the film from after affects. . Therefore If I wanted to do my affects I would first have to upload the clips into after affects before premiere in order to my affects!

  7. Extremely slow to launch

    Launcing Acrobat DC takes 2-3 minutes, and occasionally an error occurs and it will not launch. Once open, PDF files can be selected and opened immediately, but double clicking on a PDF file also takes 2-3 minutes for the file to open. This makes it awkward to use, so looking for another PDF application. Have tried all the forum suggestions for fixing this issue, but nothing works, and the IT people have been unable to solve the problem. I am running DC with the latest version of Windows 10.

  11. PDF forms saved with Reader Extended → Enable More Tools (form fill-in & save) should editable!

    Whenever I use "File → Save as Other → Reader Extended PDF → Enable More Tools (Includes form fill-in & save)" to save my form. The form in the resulting file cannot be edited. Why? This effectively causes me to have to maintain three copies of my PDF forms: One with no form controls, one converted to a form, and one with More Tools enabled.

  12. Page Thumbnails

    In the page thumbnail area in Adobe it would be nice to be able to jump a page from its current location to the front or end of a document. Also, it would be nice to be able to copy paste a page in this area as well.

    Thank you.

  14. Digital signature is too complex for the average Joe, i.e. me

    You need to make this easier and less quirky. I'm using a mac and have downloaded acrobat pro for windows and mac. It's taken me ages and youtube videos to create a digital signature and on a blank pdf I can add it. But when sent a pdf that already contains digital signatures it won't let me sign. In the end I used Mac Preview. This obliterated the original signatures but at least I could sign and send it back for resignature by others. The whole exercise is very unpleasant and very very annoying.

  15. Electronic Signature and editing thereafter

    When receiving electronic signature documents, there is now - no way of applying a comment box or adding text any other way. Most departments/agencies use a Document Management System (DMS), and still print a hardcopy as part of the workflow. There is a requirement to place the DMS registration number on the PDF prior to printing, so that the document is easily retrievable on the DMS whilst the hardcopy circulates within the area. I understand the requirement that the document is not "editable" and propose the solution to allow text to be added, but somehow make it identifiable on both…

  16. BUG - Randomly Can't Play certain .mp4's

    I have had multiple PDFs made in indesign with REALLY SIMPLE .mp4's just refuse to play. In this one, the second video plays fine, but the first will NOT play no matter what I do. I've switched the video, I've reexported it, I've deleted the contents of the page and started over, and it still just sits with that ugly loading bar whenever I open it up in acrobat to test it out. I work with video regularly, and this happened last week when I tried assembling a few videos for a project for another client. All of them loaded…

  17. exportAsFDF: values are exported from fields not in the array

    Steps to reproduce the issue: Create an exportAsFDF script in a privileged context in a folder level script. Specify an array of some but not every child field of a non-terminal field name using the aFields parameter with exportAsFDF. Next, employ ALL child fields of that multi-field set a pdf, not just the fields in the array, and enter values in every field in the family. Call the script from the pdf to export and save the fdf file. Reset the fields in the pdf to a blank state. Import the fdf file to that pdf.

    Environment: Acrobat Pro DC;…

  18. Get linking to web videos like on YouTube.com working again

    10 years ago I was able to link to external video sites like YouTube.com and have videos appear in Adobe documents with Acrobat. But for some reason the software has a bug now and when placing a url into the dialog box it says "No media file has been specified. Please select one and try again." Can you please fix this soon. This is very frustrating since it use to work fine 10 years ago. Thank you.
