  1. crash

    I just upgraded to Adobe Pro last week and today whenever I open a PDF it crashes after a few seconds. I also am not able to print to a PDF and it says that my account is not activated, but when I check everything looks right.
    I tried all the troubleshooting and nothing has worked.

  3. Provide information re how Reader DC works if one doesn't have an adobe account

    Provide information re how Reader DC works if one doesn't have an adobe account. In that case if I scan a document into my computer using Reader does Reader put a copy of the document into the cloud even though I don't have an Adobe account?

  4. Help on highlighting fields

    I have a fillable .pdf and needed help to turn on the field highlights. Searching for 'show fillable fields' was not useful on your tutorials and help pages, the switch is buried in the preferences menu.
    1) Simple, direct answers to simple questions!
    2) This switch should be easier to find, placed somewhere in a View menu. Uh, might I suggest 'View Fillable Fields'?

    You can try searching “highlight” as keyword in the RHP and select the option easily without going to Preferences. Please ensure that the PDF is form.

    Thank You for sharing a suggestion.

  5. Highlight feature?

    Where is the highlight feature and how to use it? very important for documents?!!

  6. PDF to Excel Conversion

    I need to convert some bank statements into excel. However, the conversion is highly distorted, across various cells, and almost unusable. Sharing the attached sample.

    Do you have a solution that you can share.

    I have tried, online links and conversion of these files work fine there, But because of security issues, I need a trusted software and hence trying to use Adobe.

  8. Link option while combining PDF's into one PDF

    Can Adobe make a feature that allows you to insert and link PDF files (pages) into one PDF (Set) while maintaining the link back to the original file. So if the original file is updated so is the (Set) PDF in the same way images are Linked and updated in Indesign. Would be a massive help with 2D part drawings for creating a drawing set during revisions.

  9. Create Multiple Radio buttons for each group

    Under the prepare form function, users should be allowed to create multiple radio buttons with a single function rather than creating one radio button at a time for each group. Say I have 100 questions and each question has 4 choices meaning it has 4 radio buttons, that is 400 radio buttons that i have to manually create. It is tedious and painful. There has to be a faster way to do this.

    This should also provide an option whether the layout of the radio buttons is vertical or horizontal.

  11. Cropping multiple files with action wizard causes crash

    I set up a simple action to crop files to some specific measurements. These are magazine pages, so all need the same crop. The action wizard manages about 10 files and then crashes. When it crashes it corrupts the file it was currently working on, so I have to generate that one again for the next attempt. As our magazine has up to 600 pages, this is a huge problem. It seems to happen every time I try. I am on a Mac running the latest Mojave version.

  12. "Ignore Future Errors" checkbox is Ignored on Acrobat Pro DC 2019.010.20091 on Mac

    I attempted to run the "Recognize Text In This File" command on a file with digital signatures and received a random "This operation is not permitted" error (see screenshot) which may in itself be a bug. But then I checked "Ignore future errors in this document" and hit OK, and received the same popup, with the "Ignore future errors" box checked, for each subsequent error in the document until it reached the last page. I thought this was strange.

  13. Singe page view, horizontal swipe to "flip" pages

    Drawboard PDF's single page view allows one to swipe through pages (like "flipping" pages in a book). I find this helps with retention as it breaks apart the text, delineated by page breaks. I've tried your single page vertical scrolling view, but I found it to be clunky. A few things that would probably make this better (for the horizontal swipe as well):


    1. Don't have the page "glued" to the screen, but put it on a rubber band -- so, as someone "drags" the page, you can see it react/ shift from the center/ default position. If the user just…

  14. Can't select a text annotation - Acrobat Pro 2017

    In Acrobat X a text annotation (created with the Typewriter tool) could easily be selected by merely clicking on it. In Acrobat Pro 2017 there seems to be no way to select it. This is a real show stopper for me since I often need to delete or copy/paste a group of selected line, text, and other annotations.

  16. Repeats automatic update when I try to open a PDF

    Today Acrobat automatically updated when I opened a PDF. Now, every time I try to open another PDF, it starts the automatic update process again. How can I stop this?

    It seems to me this is a bug.

    Thanks, A. F. Calhoun

  19. Adobe Acrobat DC enoding

    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I am French fund of literature and work for editors in particular in view of publications of translations from Indian literature into French.

    I am thus using most programs of the Adobe Creative Suite, because I also manage a Web site devoted to the promotion of Indian literature to French-speaking people (www.chatranjali.fr).

    The purpose of my request is the following:
    I gather PDF documents from either Indian sites, or Indian writers or their agents. They are thus written in one of the numerous languages and scripts used in the Indian subcontinent: devanagari mainly, but…

  20. Cannot edit PDF after entering password

    Acrobat DC, Windows
    If I open a PDF which I protected myself with a password and I enter the password to temporarily disable the protection, I should be able to edit the PDF the way I want, but I'm not. I cannot mark, not draw anything. I'm forced to save an unprotected copy. This is paradox and stupid!
