Adobe on Windows 11 64bit Continuous Release cannot resize all the fonts and text in pdf at once

Its a little upsetting that the FREE browser extension "Printer Friendly and PDF" can convert web pages to html faster and better than Acrobat PRO can.

 

One thing that "Printer Friendly and PDF" can do that is VERY useful is that it can resize ALL the text and graphics in a pdf (just converted by "Printer Friendly and PDF" from a regular web page)  by just clicking the plus or minus buttons next to the 'Font' setting.

 

Everything I have so far found in this Windows version of Acrobat Pro will only let me resize specific items... not the entire doc.  I'm printing out pages from MS Learn (as I'm working on my Azure certs) and the default size (at least as Acrobat is interpeting it) is way too big.  Resizing the print just makes the print area smaller,  in other words, the page gets smaller and move up and to the left.  I need it to also re-flow the whole document (preferaably with no more than 2 clicks: click tool, click plus or minus).   Preflight doesnt work.  However, the last version of Acrobat Pro would not let me edit ANY pdf document because it thought security was turned on for every, single, doc I opend.  Howeer, if I went  to document properties, it showed no security on anything.  Continuous Release Version 2023.006.2320 is, at least, has fixed this issue. So it is some improvement over the last version. 

 

It almost seems that product management (for Acrobat Pro) has concentrated so much on the high end and esoteric features in Acrobat Pro, that they have completely lost touch with the requirement to do simple, inuitive things very quickly.  I mean, Product Management,  check out "Printer Friendly and PDF", and use it.  Its extremely easy to use.  You'll broaden your market much more if you allow new users to easily do the simple, intuitive things they wan to do, and to do them quickly,  I like adobe and I want to use the prodcut suite, but this version of Pro is incredibly frustrating to use.  You have created or allowed significant "barriers to entry" in reverse: you are barring yourself from a much broader market.

 

I'd really like to understand your target market is.  Then I'd really be able to ascertain if PM has clue.  Or have you become IBM.  Yes, somehow, IBM is still making money but they are boring as krap.  Here is a tip: buy the code, rights to re-package, or the company behind "Printer Friendly and PDF".  Wow, that is even really more like IBM, you have to buy your innovation now.  😞

 

And why dont you have a LLM Chat fronting your support page?

Hi @bueche 

 

I hope you're doing well, and thank you for reaching out to us.

 

To better assist you, could you please clarify whether this issue is specific to a particular PDF file or if it occurs with all PDFs? It would be helpful if you could try resizing the text in a different PDF file to see if the problem persists. If it's isolated to a particular file, kindly share that file with us so that we can investigate further.

 

I attempted to replicate the issue on my end and was successful in resizing the text in a PDF using the Edit tool in Adobe Acrobat Pro on Windows 11. However, to provide you with more accurate guidance, I would appreciate it if you could describe what happens when you attempt to resize the text. Are there any error messages that appear? If so, please share a screenshot of the error message for a better understanding of the issue.

 

Additionally, if possible, could you provide a brief video recording of the steps you are taking to resize the font and text in the PDF all at once? This would help us pinpoint the problem and offer a more tailored solution.

 

We're here to assist you, and the more information you can provide, the faster we can resolve this issue for you.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
