Hi, 

 

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC removes Finder's "Tags" and "Date Last Opened" if you save an edited PDF after removing "Text Highlight".

 

The following procedure can replicate the bug:

 

  1. Download and open a PDF file such as this from Adobe’s website: https://learndownload.adobe.com/pub/learn/acrobat/edit-text-images-pdf-files.zip
  2. In the macOS Finder, assign a Tag and open the file.
  3. Go back to finder and check the Tag and the Date Last Opened
  4. Go back to the pdf, highlight a line and save the file (first save).
  5. Remove the highlighted text and save the file again (second save).
  6. Now go to the Finder, the "Tag" and the "Date Last Opened" is gone.

 

I am on macOS Catalina version 10.15.6 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Build: 20.12.20043.396433.

 

Really annoying …
