  1. Better support for VDI/Virtualized environments

    Now that users need to authenticate towards the Creative Cloud it should be possible to be able to roll out Adobe products on VDI environments utilzing Non Persistent Linked clones.

    The problem is that Adobe still uses the machine ID in the licensing. In a non persistent environment the machine ID changes each time the user logs on. Instead Adobe should re-authenticate the user and activate the Adobe products each time a user log on. Information about the users credentials should be stored in the roaming part of the userprofile.

  2. Problems with Pitstop tools after updating Acrobat DC

    After an update of Acrobat DC has been installed on our computers:
    the PitStop Pro toolbars had disappeared and
    the PitStop Pro selection tool frequently becomes unresponsive

    Windows specifications: Windows 10 Pro / version 1709 / OS Build 16299.98
    Pitstop specifications: Enfocus Pitstop Pro 17 Build 786028
    Acrobat specifications: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - version 2018.009.20050

    Are those issues known by you and do you have a solution for those problems ?

  3. Signing in is an arduous process which doesn't work more often than not. I have since found I need to close and open multiple times.

    I get the confirmation licensing message after logging in, but it always stays as 'log in' on the top right instead of my name. Restarting and clicking the login box sometimes fixes it. Longterm issue.

  4. application hang when closing OLE window from PowerBuilder 12.5 application

    Using Adobe Acrobat XI 11.0.23 (Acrobat, not Reader), our PowerBuilder 12.5 application hangs for 8-10 seconds when an OLE PDF window is closed. The same delay is seen with Reader DC 17.012.20093 and all subsequent versions but is not seen with Reader DC 17.009.20058 and older, or Reader XI 11.0.23 and older.

    There seems to be some delay in the destruction of the OLE PDF viewer object; the delay can even be seen when closing a window containing an OLE PDF viewer from PowerBuilder 12.5 IDE.

  6. Text call out tool properties not set as default

    Text call out tool issue . After commenting on a document , the color of the call out box is changes to blue and this property made "default" through " make current property default " option. This change is valid as long as acrobat pro application remains open . When the application is restarted , the text call out box reverts back to the original properties i.e. white in color . This problem comes for the text call out tool only and other drawings markups retain their set properties even after restarting the application.

  7. cannot print single pages when in comparison mode

    Cannot print single pages when in comparison mode; only prints the summary page. It would be helpful to print single pages so I have a record of what still needs to be fixed in my document, since you cannot save the newer doc version as a separate document with notes intact. At least I would have a hardcopy to refer to.

  8. Windows metadata tag

    The Windows properties metadata tag though not used by Adobe PDF cannot be added or changed. For other files as .jpg, MS Office this field is available in Windows Explorer and can be edited. I wish Adobe do the same with PDF in order to allow files to be searched by tags.

  9. HTML export

  10. Bug: Acrobat file created by InDesign export cannot be reduced in size; hangs Acrobat

    A PDF which was created via an InDesign export, cannot be reduced in size in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. It hangs Acrobat during the Reduce in Size option.

    I have isolated the cause of the problem to the final letter "x" that was added at the end of the text in the Indesign CC file.. I will try to see if I can attach that file. I have attached a ZIP-compressed Adobe InDesign CC 2018 package. I have also attached the PDF file.

    This problem is keeping me from reducing in size a very large file.

  12. Post From to Social Media Button

    Add a functionality option to form buttons that would allow for posting to social media (Facebook, Twitter etc.). This would allow the user to post an image of the form to social media (without the button showing) This would allow designers to create "form templates" that would allow the users even in Reader to post to social media.

  13. Distiller does not show all presets and not sorted

    I have several settings/presets saved in the folder:

    /Users/saschabucher/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PDF/Settings

    But only some of them are showing up in the Distiller settings dropdown where you can set the preset. The ones showing up are not even in the alphabetic order. This is maybe related to the issue in InDesign where the script panel is also not anymore ordered.

    This is may just cased by OSX High Sierra and SSD.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your valuable feedback.
    For Distiller setting dropdown not in alphabetic order we have logged a bug in our database.
    And Setting which are not showing in dropdown this is not reproducible at our end. Can you please try reinstalling and updating Acrobat if its not updated to latest version? Let us know if this issue is still there.

    Best Regards!

  16. Convert Colors progress bar shows incorrect page number

    When converting colors on a multi-page PDF file, after clicking OK, the progress bar that appears starts with showing "Converting Page 0" when it should be "Converting Page 1". Probably just using the pages array index (being zero based).

    I am sorry for the inconvenience you are facing. Can you elaborate on the issues you are facing with Acrobat DC?

  18. Bug Report

    When I make a change to a file with Adobe Pro DC and try to save the file, Windows Defender is blocking access to the "Control Folder Access". It says to add the Adobe Pro DC exe file as a safe app. I can not locate the path. I have Windows 10 Creators Update OS.
