  1. Corrupt registry key iProtectedView

    In our company we are using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Version 2018.009.20044. We want to set the iProtectedView registry setting to increase security of our system, however, we found out that the value name has a trailing whitespace: "iProtectedView ". Is this an Acrobat DC issue, that the value name was misspelled? Does it exist also without the whitespace in other versions?

    Thank you for reporting the issue. We regret you facing inconvenience.

    Seems the PDF documents have restrictions w.r.t page extractions and signing operations. Please check Document Properties (CTRL+D or CMD+D) > Security and see if any document security is applied.
    If you are not the author of the PDF, you will need to contact him/her to.

    Please share the version of acrobat you are using. You can do so using the link -helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/identify-product..

    And also share the test PDF file using forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7161 for us to investigate further if this does not resolve your issue.

  8. Bugs?

    My Acrobat DC (Order number: ADD030792008BR) close immediately a few seconds after opening in my notebook and also in my PC. Moreover, if I try to use it, it stands open only a few seconds.

I did not installed Acrobat DC corectly? My PC is a DELL Precision Tower 3620 and my notebook is a DELL Precision M1400. All my other programs work fine. Can you…

  9. Enhance Scan<Camera - allow for entire document in one single click

    Allow this feature to be used for the entire document by a single click. Now it has to be done manually for every page.

  11. Wants me to upgrade, can't get to adding initials, sigs page.

    I add email addresses, then it should let me fill in inits and sigs but the next screen says it wants me to upgrade. I just auto-paid on the 5th. This is a 30 page 'of the essence' Real Estate contract. I tried it on 2 computers. No one's available to chat or talk on the phone after 5:00. C'mon, how many people subscribe to the service and you can't have a tech person available to fix a problem?? Get with the program Adobe.

  12. Export to Microsoft Word - includes the Footnotes

    When exporting a PDF with Footnotes into Word, it would be good if the Footnotes would be retained as proper Footnotes.

    Right now the text from the Footnotes appears at the bottom of the page in Word, but what looks like Footnotes isn't in the proper Footnote area of the page, nor are the "Footnotes" linked to the Footnote References.

  13. Feature request for compliance - allow Canadian customers to store Adobe cloud-hosted data/content in AWS's Canadian servers

    My feature request is specifically related to Adobe's use of Amazon Web Services to store the identity management details (first name, last name, email address) that a named user account requires to have registered with Adobe. My request is to leverage AWS regional location capabilities to store the data and content in AWS Canada's servers for Adobe's Canadian customers. My business has been advised that release of new serialized versions of Acrobat (and some other Adobe products) will end in 2018, and that I am to move to named user licensing. My organization is public sector and located in British…

  14. Comments locked on for multiple documents

    I have to open multiple PDF invoices and put some information on each one (our promotion number, type of invoice, etc). Currently, every time I open an invoice, I need to select Comments and then select the type of comment that I want. This takes longer than typing in the comment itself. I would like a way to go into "comment mode," or lock my ability to have comments on for the duration of the session.

  15. Resize comment box to same level as other object when zomming in or out

    The comment markers are not resizing with the same level as the diagram and their position relative to the items in the diagram changes.

    can you make the comment boxes resize in the same level as the other object om a pdf page when zoming in or out in the future.

  17. Adobe Send & Track Outlook 2016 Mac Plug-in

    I love the Adobe Send & Track plug-in for Outlook 2016 on the PC. I was just informed by someone from Adobe that this feature is not available on Macs. Could you please look into developing this feature for Macs at some point? Thank you.

  18. Ability hilite, underline or otherwise markup a secured document.

    Product manuals are often secured and one can print but not comment, hi-lite or otherwise mark up important info would be helpful. Such "edits" could be a different layer and not integral to the original document. Even disclaimer text or ownership of such edits could be water-marked into the file.

  19. Acrobat Pro/Standard PDF Printing.

    Hi Adobe,

    Shame this isn't a bug bounty or I could possibly get some pennies!

    In short, PDFs created in older versions of Adobe do not work with the most recent edition you guys have released.

    A client of ours was missing text when printing, after months of painful driver changes etc, we had found a resolution.

    Any user that creates a PDF in older Adobe software, will not be able to have a colleague print all text/docs/stamps/markups/borders/lines on a PDF within Acrobat. Only downgrading the user to an older unsecure, unsupport Adobe product works.

    Adobe Reader 11.x/11.x.21 - Installing…
