I am having two issues that may be related. I am on a Mac, current OS and Acrobat DC Pro up to date as well. I am having frequent app crashes. Also, some files will not sync through google drive for desktop. The simply try to sync but they never finish. If I open some files (and I do not edit or save them, only view) causes my mac to see the file as being modified, and a sync starts that wont finish. I suspect it has something to do with my fonts - I say this becuase I get errors about some fonts not being available (even thought they are in my font book). Its becoming a problem for using acrobat, but also for syncing my files. Has anyone seen this, any ideas on how to fix. Having been using these tools for a long time, this is new. And coincided with intalling some fonts in my font book. Thanks.

Which operating system? macOS Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey?
Are you attempting to open a PDF directly from Google Drive? Or are you downloading & saving the PDF to your hard drive first?
Monterey 12.3.1 Opening pdf from desktop. Upon opening there is no immediate issue. But some files automatically act if they are saved (modified) when they are not.
Thank you for reaching out.

You have mentioned that when you open the PDF from Google Drive to view it, it shows as modified.
Would it be possible for you to share the screen recording showing the same?
Share the Acrobat version currently in use.
I am up to date on the app. (I installed new version a week or two ago). I have done the troubleshooting steps, and issues continues. Here is phtoo of my google drive which currently cannot sync this 300k file.
The only was to get this to resolved to force quite drive for desktop and restart it (and it spends a lot of time resyncing everything, which is less than convenient. As far a a screen recording on the issue you ask about, let me work on that one, but its a file (old ones) that are on my mac (and synced from the cloud on google drive).
The file did finally sync without a restart, but took 15 minutes on a fast connect, its always pdf files, and only pdf file that are causing this
See my notes below. I dont have a screen video, but every time I open a pdf and simply close it, it triggers a sync, one had been running for 45 minutes now. Did nothing to the file. Its on my desktop, I opened it, and closed it. I can show you on a screen share but cannot post a video
