Hi there,

 

how do I enable Auto-Rename file option under Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - Action Wizard - New Action - More Tools? Also I don't see Plug-ins menu option.

 

Note: I'm using company subscribed Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Application. Printscreen attached.

Acrobat can't rename files. It can save documents with a new name. In the Action Wizard use the Save step.

To do that add a Save command (from the Save & Export sub-menu), then click it, select Specify Settings and you'll be able to specify a prefix and/or suffix for the new file name:

If you want a more complex pattern then it can also be done using a script.
