Acobat Pro seems to crash constantly when attempting to edit larger PDF files. Full uninstall/reinstall is not helping. Running on a M1 Mac, Big Sur 11.5.1. Any ideas?

Hi Amal,

I just did a COMPLETE removal of ALL things Adobe (including cache and preferences) from the Mac in question and rebooted. I then reinstalled Acrobat DC using an installer I downloaded from your website, rebooted, and installed the Adobe CC app using an installer downloaded from your website. Without installing any plugins or making any preference changes, Acrobat crashed after opening a few PDF files of varying size and page count.

I've attached the crash log that was generated in addition to errors I regularly get when viewing PDF files.

Thanks,
hp

Constant crashes multiple times per day.  Does not seem to matter the size of the pdf or how many I have open.  

Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2021.011.20039

Having alot of devices facing the same issue, none of the proposed solutions worked for me. 
Even a freshly installed mac has the issue with OS X 12.2.1.

Is there any update on this as my team of 10 operators are all experiencing this issue? (Constant crashes without any pattern). All Macs are M1 Mac Mini's running OS 12 Monterey 12.3.1 and the latest available version of Arobat DC.

Hi Neil. What specific version of Acrobat are you on? I've had a lot less crashes since updating to 2022.001.20112.

Something to try: in Acrobat Preferences > General > Application Startup, is the "Enable native OS mode for optimal performance" enabled? If so, try disabling it. If that doesn't help, go to your Applications > Acrobat folder, click once on the Acrobat app, Get Info (Command - I), and enable the "Open with Rosetta" checkbox.

 

If all the above does not help, try the following (it will make no sense):

 

On your desktop, when you have a Finder window open and click once on a file, do you get a thumbail preview of the file on the right side of the window? If so, try disabling the preview feature in macOS.

After such frustration with the Adobe issue, and reading so many posts with disingenuious information from Adobe looking for a fix, yours finally (I think, I hope. It's been working.) solved the issue for me.  Fingers crossed it stays this way, and fingers crossed even tighter that Adobe finally gets its act together and actually fixes the problem!

Hi @hopkinsprinting thanks for the tips, they have worked for me. I'm not sure which one, I might re-enable preview and see if it is that, as I would prefer to keep it open.

 

@Amal.  Please take note of this, this seems to have fixed this problem that I have been having for months. It is not a small problem, it makes using Adobe a real pain, I had resorting to using preview to avoid Adobe as much as possible. Can you pass this feedback on to your team to provide some kind of "patch" for the next update.
