I did as requested (by Admin. Adobe) and ensured there were no running instances of Acrobat DC or Word and then launched Acrobat DC and attempted to combine Word files using the Combine tool. Upon attempting to drag and drop the first Word file into the "Combine Files" box, the following message appeared: Starting the application which created the selected document. Please wait...
Adobe DC got stuck at this stage. A force quit of the program was required and I needed to restart my computer.Anonymous commented
As of an update to Adobe Acrobat DC in July 2017, Word docs (Office 2013 or Office 2016) are no longer able to be directly combined into a PDF file. Adobe Acrobat simply "spins" and states that it is converting the files, but eventually the program has to be forced to close and the computer restarted in order to use the program again. (Adobe Acrobat DC won't open again after this forced quit event.) Prior to the July 2017 update, Word docs could be easily directly combined into a PDF file using Adobe Acrobat DC.Anonymous supported this idea ·
