  1. 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"…

  3. 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"

  4. 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

  5. javascript window expired

    I can't open PDFs, I tried everything from disabling javascript, turning protected mode off, to formatting my laptop. It always pops out with a javascript window expired. I've attached a photo below. If I disable javascript I am able to open the file but there is no content, if it is enabled then once I open the file it the pop up appears and when I click ok it closes the file.

    Hi Rai,

    I suppose you are facing this with a particular set of PDF’s. Can you please provide one such PDF. Also please provide the version of Acrobat you are using.

    Thanks

  6. Make it possible to toggle Highlight or Comment icons from on to off

    When one clicks the highlight icon or comment icon (accidentally or on purpose) one is committed to doing more highlighting or commenting. The best one can do right now is click some other icon. One wants to go back to just selecting text. (The same should hold for other icons.)

  10. AABDC needs 'Smart Lookup' capabilities like what is in MS Word 2016 to be able to look up phrases, not just SINGLE words.

    AABDC needs 'Smart Lookup' capabilities like what is in MS Word 2016 to be able to look up phrases, not just SINGLE words.

    I want to be able to highlight something such as a persons name and then 'right click' on it and have a 'drop down' link to Google search the name or other selected phrases.

  11. thumbnail view and new file same window

    I spend all day compiling pdfs from multiple files and these 2 features are driving me crazy! In the newest Acrobat Pro DC version everytime I access the thumbnails panel it goes back to a long strip of pages stacked one above the other, I generally prefer to have 2 or 3 pages in a row and it never remembers this and always defaults back to 1. The other thing I hate is opening all new files in the same window - I regularly grab a page(s) from one pdf and drag into the other pdf and now I have…

  12. Combine

    I work for the Federal government and was issued a copy of Adobe Acrobat DC. I have Adobe Flash Player 27 Active X and 27 NPAPI as well as Adobe Reader XI(11.02.21) installed on our system. I am having problems combining Adobe forms, I feel as if there are some radio buttons missing in order for this task to be completed. the page I singled out is blank, it should not be, there is data on that page. The 2 documents are not combined after hitting the COMBINE button, they are still two separate documents. Can you please advise if…

  15. Advanced Print Options Do Not Save Correctly in Custom Profiles

    In Acrobat XI Pro and Acrobat DC, when using the Advanced settings in Print, items such as Screening do not actually persist with saved custom profiles. If you select settings and save it under a new profile, switch to another and then view the profile where you had the desired settings, the settings will be found to never have saved in the first place.

    Additionally there is no way to save these custom profiles as a default.

  18. Portfolio layout macro

    I have several potfolio with simial structure. Each time I open them I want a view with a vertical split in the window and the source folder added to the file deails pane. Not a big deal but adds up to some time. I have not been successful in finding a custom layout which provides this - they seem to be a daunting subject.. So my question is would it be possinle to write a macro I could run on opening the layout and where could I find hints/advice on how to write such a macro.
    Thank you for any…

  19. Compare Documents function not catching noticeable document changes

    Bug report: Acrobat Pro Compare documents is missing noticeable changes from the old document to new document using the "Reports, spreadsheets, magazine layouts" option.

    Can be reproduced by using the Compare Documents feature and comparing an older document to a newer document.

    Version: 2015 Release (Classic) 2015.006.30355
    OS: Windows 10, Windows 7, Server 2012R2

    Expected Result: Compare documents feature should catch noticeable changes in the document from the old document to new document.

    I attached a screenshot of an area missed by the compare feature (highlighted in red circle), if needed I can provide the 2 documents used to compare.…

  20. Running Sierra 10.12.6. Acrobat pro won't open properly.

    Acrobat pro won't open properly on my iMac running Sierra 10.12.6.
    I can see it in the menu bar at the top of the screen, but it won't open any further than that.
    I have been able to click on file-open and managed to open a file, but none of the tool functions work.
