I would like to set Adobe Reader to open at 100 percent, however even after changing the override of the display it still opens up at 176%.
It's not Adobe Pro, it's Adobe Reader.

Windows 10 machine running Office 365.
User had Adobe Acrobat Reader DC installed on PC
Then installed another PDF viewer called Foxit Reader. He wanted that removed so I uninstalled it via "programs and features"
Now his Preview feature in Outlook no longer allows him to view PDFs - only happening with PDFs
Steps taken:
1.  Ensured that Adobe is set to be the default for all PDF file types
2. Verified that the Preview option in settings for Outlook was turned on
3. Checked registry key as per https://www.msoutlook.info/question/362 and it is correct.
4. Ran an online repair of office and rebooted the machine - still an issue.

Next I'm going to uninstall and reinstall Adobe to see if maybe it will pick it back up.

Any other ideas?

Client with Adobe Acrobat Pro XI  Version 11.0.23  Workstation is Win 8.1 Pro 64bit

Sometimes it opens fine and then sometimes (Most of the time) it takes approx 20-30 Seconds to open a Document

What causes this and how can I repair?

I already did 7 day adobe acrobat trial

Is there another program I can use to write my signature (my name in cursive handwriting)
and fill out pdf document with text

I have a very large set of assorted PDF files. They contain searchable text, but the text is filled with errors. If I save a page from the PDF as an image, and use my OCR software on it, I get a much better result. So, I would like to re-OCR all of the files — but first I need to "flatten" all of the text objects in the PDFs, since none of my OCR tools will overwrite any existing text.

I do have Acrobat X and XI Pro, and I've tried using a batch action to strip the text and rerun OCR, but anytime the program encounters an error, it interrupts the process with a dialog box. I searched for a way to prevent this, but there does not appear to be one.

So, the way I see it, I need one of three things:

1. A way to force Acrobat to skip over errors in batch actions and process the remaining files. I could swear you used to be able to do this.

2. A batch OCR tool, free or paid, that will remove and replace all existing text objects.

3. A tool to batch-flatten all text objects in a large set of PDFs (so I can then run them through OCR). I've found software that looks related, but everything seems to either delete text, which I don't want; or else it flattens form fields, images, etc. but does not mention text.

Any of the three of these would solve my problem. I'm open to other suggestions too, of course -- any advice is greatly appreciated!

Using Adobe Acrobat DC v2018.011.20058 on Windows 10. When I open a file in the pdf, then minimize it, any new pdf I open, opens in a new tab in that same pdf. I cannot find a way to open a new pdf in its own window. This is annoying, because if I close the pdf, it asks me if I want to close both tabs (like a browser), and I have to say no or x out of the new file. Or, I can directly click on the tab. Either way, it is very annoying.

Any ideas?

Looking for a solution that will allow a team to simultaneously edit PDF's Similar to the way Onedrive will allow users to work on the same word document and see the changes other users are making relatively instantly. Basically don't want 2 people to be over writing each other or have to piece meal it and put the document together at the end.

Accountant sends us tax returns as password protected PDFs (password needed to open it.  Properties says it was created with Thomson Reuters FileCabinet CS.  The security tab says I can print, copy contents, comment, etc (I can do everything execpt doc assembly and page extraction, whatever those are : )

I click on them in outlook, it opens in Acrobat Reader DC ( free version) - this is on a windows 10 pro machine by the way.

I want to keep a PDF without the password.  So print to PDF?  But they get sooo much larger

Working on it now, he sent a 24 page PDF that is 93kb

trying different apps:

microsoft print to PDF - 673kb
Tried printing with PDF Creator, but it balks because PDF is password protected (to open, and printing is allowed).  WTF!

http://forums.pdfforge.org/t/error-29101-printing-password-protected-pdf/13676

Tried opening in chrome.  printing w/ microsoft print to pdf made it a 5MB file!  And still can't use pdf creator.

What's a good combination for opening & printing a PDF or some other easy way to strip off password protection to open a PDF

Does Adobe provide a way to associate a *.wav file (or other audio format) with each page of a PDF file?   I'd like to be able to produce a report with voice narration for each page of the document.   I have assumed no such ability exists, but before I head in another direction, I thought I'd ask -- because Adobe does sneak in a lot of features to some of its products.

Hi
I have 30 PDF documents located on a folder called Policies on our file server -shared drive. Each files contain various policies and procedures for our organization.
I would like to create a single PDF file, where it has separate links to open every file that is located on the Policies folder on the shared drive. Then I would like to copy this single PDF file to the staff desktops PCs and when required staff can open the single PDF file and click the appropriate link to view the files located on the policies folder.

I opened the word 2016 and insert- Hyperlink and put the file path on the address and the Text to display- Saved it as a PDF and when I click the “Organisation Holiday Dates” link it says:
 “Security warning “- This document is trying to connect to: file///E:/HANDBOOK/...
Please see the attached snapshot   which shows the error.

Please let me know as how to stop the security warning from popping when i click the “Organisation Holiday Dates” link on the single PDF file.
Or is there any other better way to achieve this
Any help will be great
Thanks in advance.

How to scan to a PDF file with free software
I've published three five-minute Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorials that describe terrific features in an excellent, free PDF product called PDF-XChange Editor:

How to rotate pages in a PDF with free software
How to OCR pages in a PDF with free software
How to password-protect a PDF with free software

PDF-XChange Editor has many other features in its free version, but, unfortunately, it cannot do scanning — you must purchase one of its non-free versions to get scanning functionality. Fortunately, there's another excellent, free PDF product that can perform scanning — Foxit Reader. However, the free Foxit Reader cannot do OCR, so you'll want to keep the free PDF-XChange Editor for its OCR capability, and add Foxit Reader for its scanning capability. The combination of the two products will allow you to create searchable PDFs (aka PDF Searchable Image files) with your scanner, utilizing free software.

N.B.: As with any "free" software, there may be restrictions, which are always specified in the software's licensing agreement, typically known as the End-User License Agreement (EULA). I encourage you to read the entire EULA of these products to be certain that you are in license compliance.

In order to scan, Foxit Reader requires an …

Hi all,

I have problem to display my PDF file in an existing popup window using spring framework. The workflow is when I click a button from the main page, it popups a new window (child) and showing progress status. After the file finished generating, I set the view in controller and return to jsp. However, the PDF file displays (using DefaultResourceLoader and response.flushBuffer) in the main page instead of the popup window. I want to show in popup. Anything wrong? How can I specify which window the PDF should be displayed?

Please help. Thanks.

In Nuance Power PDF Advanced ver. 1.2 when we use bookmarks to link to another document, after closing the document we linked to, the program will remain open but it will also close the document we linked from. Is there a way to have the document we linked from, with the bookmark, to stay open after we close the document we linked to?

Thanks,
