Acrobat batch conversion substitutes text in place of Word content controls
Posted on 2013-12-10
This is a strange one: A client of mine is using Acrobat Standard (not sure which version, probably 7 or 9) to batch convert a bunch of Word 2007 documents to pdf. The word documents are part of a system a built for them and feature dropdown and combo box Content Controls.
When they try to convert the documents, if the content controls have not been set by the user and still contain their placeholder text, Acrobat swaps in the text "1T" or "2T" in place of the content control. If they convert the docs one at a time, or use Acrobat Pro, they do not have this issue.
Sorry I can't upload the documents because they have proprietary content, and I'm not positive what version of Acrobat.
Has anybody has seen anything like this behavior?
