  1. Opening pdfs to display separately

    In my work I open and compare and edit multiple documents at the same time, this used to be easy because each pdf opened separately on one click, so I could very quickly have them all open and work between all of them at the same time using alt/tab between them all quickly. Now though pdfs all open in the same window mimicking an internet browser. So you have to click on each and then drag it out to a different part of your screens before you can start alt/tab-ing between them. It's slowing me down and I can't be…

  3. Adobe sign not functioning

    errors with adobe sign: I have DC Pro account and I have used adobe sign in the past but not recently. Today I tried to use it and repeatedly got errors. I then tried to access the program online but the solution never loaded. Please see the attached error messages I received while trying to uses the local application. I'm only able to upload one file. I received two different errors. One said server not available, please try later and another saying no access.

    Sincerely,
    marti@cabinsatdalehollow.com

  4. Form field autodetection - limit length of form field names (T) and alternate field name (TU)

    When running the form field autodetection there are e.g. multiline text form fields detected. The names of those fields and the alternate field names have a length of up-to 2249 characters (consisting of nearly the whole page text).
    I know that theoretically text strings can be 32K or greater however a meaningful name should be much shorter. So would it be possible to limit the size to a meaningful length of lets say 255? In case no string can be detected the name is "undefined_28" which is good and short...
    Thanks

  5. Add an Account

    Add a Storage Account SharePoint Site
    Site URL is correct, Enter Account Name ignores entry and comes back to same screen
    Adding account fails and there is no help on the Adobe help site

    If this works, it should be available on all Adobe apps

  7. files exported to excel showing up weird

    When exporting a file to excel, the data is not only merging cells, but the data is coming over looking like jibber jabber (sorry, I don't know how else to put it). You can't see most of the data unless you click on a cell.

  8. Feedback forum HORRIBLY organized!

    I want to share feedback on Acrobat DC. (1) The feedback forum won't even load at the bottom of the DC page. So I'm submitting this on the "Windows and Mac" page. (2) I'd like to see if my issue has already been submitted, so I can comment there instead of posting it as a new issue. I can search for issues, but not by version; the search results are for all versions. I've now wasted nearly half an hour just trying to figure out where to post my issue, and whether my issue has already been posted. Ugh.

  9. Change Magnifying Glass icon to represent enlarge/reduce, not Find.

    Why is the magnifying glass icon in Acrobat DC not consistent with your other products? Instead of representing 'Find', it should represent 'Zoom'. Very confusing, especially when on deadline.

  10. Acrobat crashes on malformed PDF from Apple Preview macOS X 10.14.2: stray /Pg keys in tagged PDF

    This bug report was submitted to Apple on 2019-01-17 (Apple bug iD 47350683). As it has masssive impact on user experience in Acrobat (unable to save / save as, regardless whether anything was edited in Acrobat; crashing when opening or having open the Tags panel) I am sharing this here:

    Summary:
    When saving out a tagged PDF opened in Preview, Preview/Quartz seems to rewrite the whole PDF structure and - while doing so - messes up the data structures below the StructTreeRoot entry in the Catalog dictionary. For leaf objects inside the StructTreeRoot tree structure, a "Pg" entry is required…

  12. I had my works all stolen out of Kindle/CreateSpace. I want a .pdf which drops quality with each transfer.

    For my final book upload to online distribution sites, I would like a lossy file PDF. That's so that if someone steals my works, with each computer transfer of the file they make, they lose quality. And that means when they print my book, or sell it online, they get a garbage file.

  15. Select Multiple E-mail Addresses into ONE E-mail

    If a document has multiple contacts listed, and therefore multiple e-mail addresses listed, it would be nice to be able to select more than one address and have it go into the same e-mail. This feature would have to work with common e-mail providers of course. For example, I have Outlook. A PDF has multiple e-mail addresses. I would like to be able to pick and choose who to send an e-mail to, and have it open in one e-mail with my chosen people in the "To." If I click the hyperlink for their address, it opens a new e-mail…

    Issue Description:
    When launching Adobe Acrobat DC, it will pop-up an error right away as the attachment.
    Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtme Error!
    Program: C:....

    Workaround:
    overwrite msvcp120.dll & msvcr120.dll under c:\windows\syswow64

  17. BUG: Your text box text formating tool covers up document. Please move it OUT OF THE WINDOW. You keep reducing Acrobat's functionality.

    Please stop floating menus over document content. This covers up important information. Your most recent flop: When adding a text box, the font menu covers up the same box and one cannot edit it. Stop this nonsense. Acrobat keeps deteriorating with each "upgrade" since 2005. If you attend a entry level web programming class at a good university, you can learn how to design efficient user interfaces. Tell that your incopmetent manager.
