  1. Even after removing text layer, Acrobat refuses ClearScan OCR because "page contains renderable text."

    Even after I remove the hidden text layer in a PDF, I'm still not able to run an OCR with "ClearScan" (i.e. "Editable Text and Images"). It's strange because the text layer appears to be gone, yet running OCR produces the error "Acrobat could not perform recognition because: page contains renderable text."

  2. Bug... Print to File is always checked.

    Computer OS: Windows 7 Pro
    Acrobat Version: Adobe Acrobat DC (18.011.20058)

    Whenever I try to print from Adobe Acrobat, it ask me to save a file as a .prn.

    So I go to the Advance Settings from the Print Window to uncheck "Print to File" option and then close the Advance Settings window. However if I try to print it will ask me to save the file as a .prn and when I click on the Advance again to go to the Advance Settings, the "Print to File" option is checked again.

    In other words the "Print to File" option…

  4. My comment was deleted but I will continue

    Your product is very difficult to learn on the go!
    I bought it last year to be able to edit, documents redline changes, use electronic signatures and store documents efficiently.
    I never used it.
    Now I signed up for it again, still there is no way to edit etc, electronic signature. Arggh
    What a terrible waste of money!

  5. Compare files - text is flagging as discrepancy

    We use Adobe to compare PDF file that comes from two different system.
    Left side is our internal and right side is from another system.
    We copy over the format of the other system for us to compare it perfectly in Adobe.
    But no matter how we adjust the alignment and spacing, we still encounter below discrepancy flag.
    As you notice, the text are exactly the same.
    And also how come the font size of the PDF that comes from our internal system become lesser when convert to Adobe (from 8 to 7.98)

    Can you help us how to sort…

    Hi,

    There’s a difference in the font size between the characters in the files shared by you because the application used to create the two PDFs is different. Please try comparing the PDF files created using the same application and let me know if you’re still facing the issue.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    I think you are searching for the AddText functionality.
    You can find it at :
    Open EditApp → You will find AddText option in top toolbar.

    Please let us know if it serves your purpose.

    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.

  15. 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…

  17. Bug - right click error bookmark properties if different types of bookmarks are selected

    I first generated my pdf with automated bookmarks.
    I then added a few pages and gave them bookmarks manually.

    When I try to edit these different bookmarks at the same time by selecting them both and right clicking to get the properties window, the program pops up the error message "Adobe has stopped working."

    The only way to edit these different bookmarks is by not selecting the different types at the same time.

    OS: Windows 8.1 Enterprise

    Expected result: I would like the properties window to open when different bookmark types are selected.

    Observed result: The program throws an error…

  19. Remove Green Box on Button Click

    Just wanted to reach out and ask for help on removing an unwanted state appearance from a button I have created on my PDF CV.

    Basically I have created a button inside my CV so that when you click on my email at the top, it automatically opens up the users default email programme and pops in my email address in the "To" field which is the expected behaviour , I have also customised the hover sate of the button to display a small red underline which is part of my branding, what I don't like however is that when…
