  1. Replace the word emit with omit.

    In advanced printer settings, when selecting a color to exclude from printing (tiny printer icons next to cyan, magenta, yellow, and black color blocks), please change the word emit with omit. Very different meanings.

  4. Clearer communication

    Adobe newsletter touting availability of Compare feature doesn't mention this is a Pro-only feature. The link from the article lists step-by-step instructions for using this cool feature never once mentioning that it's only available for Pro version. The screencap shows Pro but it is tiny font and very easy to miss.

    This required an investment by me and your customer support to resolve this. Better communication on your end about who has access to your features is a good thing.

  8. Bypassed Password

    This is a bug report.
    I used Adobe Pro DC to encrypt documents for emailing to outside agencies among other things. Today, I discovered after sending a document to a co-worker for review, the default PDF reader on Windows allows access without the password required... simply by hitting the cancel options. I spoke with the Adobe Pro help line for an hour today and they asked me to write this report. The application used is called Windows reader, when opened you cannot print or edit but you can view the document without any obstacles, I was also able to take…

  10. Direct ink feature available in student/teacher version of adobe acrobat pro dc

    I had been using the trial version for Adobe acrobat pro dc and really liked the feature where when i was using the program on my surface pro it automatically detected that i was using the microsoft pen and i could just write on the pdf's. I purchased the student version of the program and when i went to do the same thing and it did not work. I contacted your customer service and the person said the feature was not available on the version i purchased and that i would have to buy a subscription to get that feature.…

  11. Bug with % symbols in named destinations

    When entering a named destination (for linking to within a PDF), it's impossible to enter a percentage sign ("%", U+0025). The symbol simply disappears from the name once entered.

    It's possible it's being misinterpreted as a formatting specifier in a printf call (or something similar).

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open a document and select "Edit PDF"
    2. Click the bullseye-icon in the left-most pane ("Destinations")
    3. Click "Create New Destination"
    4. Type "Bug%Test" and press Enter
    5. Note the result is "BugTest" instead of the expected "Bug%Test"

    Here's an animated screen-capture (which was too large to upload as an attachment): …

  12. Digital Signature from Page Template

    When a page is spawned from a page template that contains a digital signature, the digital signature field does not retain the set "signed" action. (I.E. mark field as read only: all fields), or a script to be executed.

  13. Bug report: unable to cancel out of changing/replacing watermark if you accidently choose watermark on a document that already has one.

    Currently if you accidentally choose to add a watermark on a document that already has one, there is no way to cancel it. You have to either go through the settings and replace it with what is already there or choose a new one. This has happened several times and the only way to get out of it is to end task on Adobe.

  16. More Advanced Editing Features Such as Reflowing Text

    The ability to join paragraphs in a PDF so, when editing, text reflows in the document, such as in Word:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgDv5BZ-sXg&list=PL5lhrBXHZ3P-ghjTvVCMA4tVBH36QsI&index=3&t=0s

    And, similarly, the ability to link separate text boxes, so that text reflows between the chosen boxes:

  17. Batch superscript or subscript within a field

    Holding the Command key (Mac) or Control key (Windows) should allow for selecting/highlighting multiple, separate characters or words within a text field. Similar to how the Shift key can be used to select/highlight a single range of characters.

    This would allow easier batch modification, to be used when making many singular characters within a paragraph into subscripts, for instance. Command or Control-selecting each character to be modified then enables the user to only have to click the subscript button once, instead of for each character after highlighting.

  18. Using the Geospatial Distance Tool hangs Acrobat

    When using the Geospatial Distance Tool with certain files, Acrobat sometimes goes into a busy state (dimmed window, spinning cursor) for long periods of time.

    If you wait, it eventually comes back, but it can be a long wait in certain cases. I have two files that cause this problem.

    Worth noting: if you turn off 'Path Intersections' in the 2D Snap Settings preference group, the issue still happens, but is greatly reduced.

  19. Adobe DC upgrade

    Hello,
    I would like to get the Adobe XI back. The DC does not work or have the same options. The change also removed some of the custom settings I had set up. It seems like a reduced version.
    I am not satisfied with the DC version.

    Regards,
