Hello There, 

 

I am looking for a way to access a shared drive on my Google Drive account in Adobe Acrobat.

 

In Adobe Acrobat Pro DC "Home" menu, I clicked on "Add an Account", I clicked on "Add" Google Drive account.

 

I then needed to sign in to my Google account and click "Allow", for Adobe Acrobat to connect with my Google Drive account. 

 

It was added, but only my "Google Drive (My Drive)" and not the "Shared Drive".

Why? And if possible, how to add a shared drive?

Hey!

 

Your observation about the Goggle Drive access is correct here. When you add an another account in Acrobat, like here it is Goggle Drive. Then it would allow you to access only "My Drive".

The content saved in My Drive would only be accessible from within Acrobat. Rest, Shared Drive, Recent, Starred etc. wont be accessible. .

This is a design behavior.

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hello,

Are there updates on this? I am working on a document with hundreds of pages and I need to add another 100 or so pages to a PDF file. Those files are in a shared google folder. How am I supposed to work on it without being able to access the shared drive? It is going to take me 20 additional hours if I have to download all these files first. 
Please forgive my irritated tone, but I cannot believe how time-consuming this project will be if I cannot access my shared google drive files. Please advise. There must be a way.
Thank you.
