  1. I would like to have images show up and allow the user to select one of the images as their choice when a drop down box is opened. This would allow them to see an actual picture of their choice instead of just the “name”.

  2. Correct. I am in the process of trying to create fill-able forms that will allow my technicians to enter the customers information and the other important things we need to know. One of those items being the color of their existing equipment. Since we work with multiple color codes I think it would be easier to have a drop down box labeled “color” and when they click on it, instead of the color codes in text showing up, it would actually present the technician with the colors as an image for them to choose from. Make sense?

  3. Yes. I would like to create a fillable form that will allow me to have a drop box that when opened would show me “colors” to choose from instead of the actual names of the colors.

  4. I use Acrobat for print production and I see a new “background” – “add background” feature – but it appears the colors provided are all RGB. I’ve tried to use what appear to be drop downs and fly out menus without any luck. I would like to be able to select CMYK values using the “color” tool.

    (I also find it strange if I choose “other color”, the colors are displayed on top of the new menu – you have to move the newly-opened window to the side to get to any of the options.)

    I’m using a Mac, has anyone else encountered this problem of not being able to use what appear to be drop down menus and fly outs in the color window?

  5. Cannot save over existing file…

    I cannot save over an existing file in Acrobat X Pro. I have a message like: “This file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.”

    But I am the owner of the file and nobody opened it. This must be a problem with Acrobat X Pro. I never have had this kind of problem with previous Acrobat versions.

    • Greetings Ronnie,

      Just off the top (quick and dirty), you could probably do the same thing we suggested before – only select just the particular pages you want to print in B&W, and then rejoin those pages into your color document, combining to replace the originals. That would be one way to approach it.

  6. How can a PDF file be edited? When I attempt to convert to Microsoft Word it comes out in these strange hieroglyphics??!! Help

  7. Hello,

    I’m creating a fillable form. I have a special request I need help with. Either using Acrobat XI Pro or LiveCycle Designer. I don’t know if it can be done in either.

    Two different (text fields), one paragraph.

    Text field 1, has a max character amount (limited space on page).
    Text field 2. Text jumps to TF2 when TF1 has reached its limit.

    Please

  8. I want to convert an pdf file into an Excel sheet but I lose my data when I convert. Acrobat Pro does not allow you to keep your data?

    Reply
    • Hmm, we don’t have a problem doing that Tara… How are you converting – are you using copy-and-paste?

      The latest releases of Acrobat are actually much better than older versions at moving/exporting data over to Microsoft Office applications, including Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

  9. All videos (on Face Book, You Tube, etc) say- “blocked plug in”. I have downloaded Adobe Flash Player several times and they are still blocked. I am missing something here. Could you help me on this one?

    Thanks!!!

  10. I am trying to fill a form with one text box (with 3 columns of information) on multiple lines.

    Is there a way to group align the text boxes or do I have to do it individually?

  11. Is there a way to convert pdf files to dgn or dwg files after they’ve been converted to pdf from dgn or dwg files?

  12. I have Adobe 9 and can’t center the 2nd line of a 2-line header, why? The preview looks correct but when you click out of the header, the 2nd line is to the left.

    Reply
    • Not sure why Bonnie, it may have something to do with the content of the text or if it contains any spaces on one end or the other… So check that, or you might try creating two separate lines of text and centering them each individually.

      Also since your application is older please make sure it has all available updates (check Help menu > Updates).

  13. CC 2014 Acrobat would show the size of the document if you hover in the left corner. How do you find it in CC 2015?

    Reply
    • Hey there Lori, one way is you’ll see the size of all the documents you’ve recently opened on the home screen of new Adobe Acrobat DC – just close (‘X’) the document and there they all are listed for you.

      The exact size is also given under File menu > Properties, or ‘Ctrl’ + D. There are probably other ways as well.

  14. Why does the entire document shift when trying to edit a single line item in Acrobat? Such as deleting a date to enter new or different date(s) the original form lines move instead of just deleting the text you want deleted and then letting you add your new text.

  15. I recently changed printers – from an HP DeskJet 6800 series to the HP Envy 4500 All-in-One. I did delete the 6800 series before the install. However, when I try to print in Adobe, the only printer allowed is the HP 6800 series printer. My new 4500 series printer is not even given as a choice. What do I need to do to get Adobe to recognize the 4500 series printer?

  16. I’m doing a History of our Private School – 50 years, which has about 100 pages in Word. I want to know if your Adobe Acrobat Standard would do this – Put a Search Bar at the top of the document. I want to allow people who purchase the history to be able to search for events, names, etc. Then I wish to put it all on a DVD. Any ideas?

  17. I created a drop down menu in my pdf as instructed but having problems with the menu floating/moving across my document if I do no de-select from that field and use the scroll bar on the right. I’ve searched the Help menu in the program as well as you tube’d it with no such luck! Any suggestions would be great!
