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?

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?

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.

Adobe acrobat dc pro compares new version and old version of pdf but the only thing text comparison thinks is similar is the word "page". Also the date has same month and same year.

Adobe Acrobat Pro XI will not longer open jpg files- I have 3 users whose computers all started at the same time you can combine files of all different types except jpg.  My computer will do it as will several others.  I have tried logging in as different users- uninstalling -reinstalling-different versions- All are on Windows 10 Pro.

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,

I have the newest version of Adobe Acrobat Pro and when I add text on a document and print the doc my text prints fine.  When I add something like a red arrow pointing to the text, that does not print.  Not sure why some items I add show up when I print and some items do not.

Hi,

My boss received a PDF and he wanted to convert it into an Excel. This PDF is different than what we have received before. Even if just highlighting a number, say, 12345 and pasted it into a cell in Excel. It becomes strange symbols. Is it because PDF has security on it? If that is the case, is there a software that can convert it? thanks

I am usually the one answering questions, but this has me stumped.  My production machine is a Windows 10 Pro installation, 32gb of RAM, Boot drive is an m.r NVME 256gb and the data drive is a 2tb.  Quite precipitously my installations of Adobe Creative Cloud, for which the institution has a license, and MS Office 2016 started crashing on me yesterday.  It looks like Edge may be the reason (Edge cannot start unless I boot to safe mode).  I have been told that adobe cc is actually a web login.  Office 2016 is pushed to the machine using KACE.  The office install seems to have intermittent crashes while the Adobe apps don't even start.  I uninstalled the KACE agent some time ago and when this started tried reinstalling it, to no avail.

Need a simple program that scans folders for "native" PDF files.

I have thousands of PDF's in a folder, but most were created from a scanner, followed by the automated use of some OCD scanner. But I need to find those few PDF files which originated from an inbound email (or other means) where the PDF was created by the original producer, where it was a bank or other service provider.

I am very new to what makes up a PDF file and apologize if this question is missing the mark slightly.

I have been told there's a metadata field called PDF Producer. I have also been told it's easy to write a program to retrieve that PDF Producer field and look for values that indicate an original/native PDF. Here are example PDF Producer values...

OpenText Output Transformation Engine - 16.1.12
Ricoh Americas Corporation, AFP2PDF Plus Version: 1.100.01, Linux

My problem is that I do not have a list of such values. So, perhaps the PDF Producer field has other attributes which we could use?

So, I am searching for "native" PDF files which are a needle in a haystack and need some simple automation that can help me find them.

Suggestions for what exactly to scan for? I fee that once that is known, the actual work of writing the program is trivial and copying those few PDF's which match, is trivial.

Thanks

Which PDF programs can I look at purchasing for basic PDF editing?  We generally just open the file, remove or add pages, makes some notes and save it.  Nothing fancy.  Want something reliable and something that won't cause ads and stupid junk to pop up.  

I don't want Acrobat. Anything but Acrobat and just a good simple reliable program.  Nuance is one I've used, but they went up on price.

how to programmatically isolate PDF from image scan versus an original PDF?

I have a folder filled with PDF's, most of which are scanned copies. But I need a way to pul out the original versions.

I do not want to deal with OCR software and need originals.

Is there a tool which can do this parsing to find originals?

I need to export PDF Forms into a format that I can import into our SQL Database.  
I am using Adobe Acrobat DC.
When I view the form and use Tools/Export PDF I do not have an option to export the form data and labels.
I do not want to use the distribution option.  

I will eventually have to allow users to import this PDF Form thru our website.  I'm just trying now to see what the exported data looks like to compare several versions
of the form for consistency in naming the form labels.  I need to show this in an exported text or spreadsheet like format.
