  1. Adobe Acrobat will not allow strike through feature in Comment mode for existing text

    I have Adobe Acrobat DC Pro and it does not recognize existing text on PDF to allow me to strike through it. The PDF has a list of items to be used. I am tasked with writing the actual quantity used in red beside the original list quantity that is to be struck through in red. This program does not recognize that original text in the comment mode and when I try to strike through the original quantity numbers it only strikes out my corrective quantities entries. There is another worker that has Adobe Acrobat 2017 and he has no…

  5. Compatibility issue with AutoCAD

    AutoCAD has an option to create a "wipeout" feature that you can place behind text to hide the drawing behind it. When creating PDFs from AutoCAD, it looks perfect while viewed as a digital copy. However, when end users (not the PDF creators) try to print these onto hardcopy FROM ACROBAT, the wipeout areas appear shaded, hatched, or solid black. This is not an issue with AutoCAD, as they print out correctly from the source. It is a compatibility issue that needs to be a collaborative effort between Autodesk and Adobe. This has actually been a problem for years, and…

  8. Acrobat silently refuses to print all the pages you paste into the Pages field

    One task I need to perform frequently in my job is to search 1,000+ page documents for certain keywords, then save to a file JUST those pages with that keyword.

    I had been doing that by using Advanced Search with the keyword, identifying particular pages to print and typing the page numbers into Notepad as I went along, such as "250-255,260-263,266,270-276,278,281,287,290-294,302,304,305,307,309,311-320,322,333,334,337-339,343-347,355,357,370-372,379". Then I would paste that string into the Pages box in the Print dialog box.

    But, come to find out, Acrobat has been TRUNCATING that to 100 characters, WITHOUT telling me. It would just go ahead and print fewer…

  9. Title is not an Adobe Sign Field Option anymore

    You removed the option of "title" for a field choice in Adobe Sign. I have to use "full name," now. Signatories are confused by this. Please put Title back as a field option.

  10. Formatting-independent pasting into sticky notes

    I often look up word translations and paste them into sticky notes beside the text. It would be great if there was a short-cut (Cmd+Alt+Shift+V) like there is in Pages to paste content right into the standard formatting of sticky notes. Otherwise, the text pasted from a webpage will often be too large or will contain distracting hyperlinks (see attached). Thanks!

  14. Read only form fields become visible when a digital signature is applied and then cleared

    Environment:
    Windows. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2019.012.20040

    Expected result is that the text field remains Read Only when the digital signature is cleared.

    What happens is the Read Only field appears visible as if it can have data entered into it.

    Unfortunately I cannot seem to reproduce it on other forms, and I cannot attach this form as it is proprietary. Not sure if this is a familiar problem with others.

  16. Font size adjustment after making subscripts reverts subscripts to normal font size

    When changing anything within a text field to a subscript or superscript, and then changing the font size of the entire field later, the subscript or superscripts are also changed to that font size. In most cases, it would be preferable to maintain characters or words that are subscripted/superscripted during an overall font size change.

  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.

  19. Allowing .ai files to be uploaded into image fields in pdf forms.

    As a graphic design, I use the same few .ai art files per day. duplicated into new files. For over a year, I've been able to select .ai files to upload directly into a image field in art proof form (which is also duplicated and reused over and over) that I created. This is a function that I was able to do hundreds of times over the past year.

    Then after running an update to Mac Catalina on 10/31, Acrobat Pro DC no longer allows .ai files (however .eps files are accepted) to be directly uploaded into image fields. The…
