After getting tossed from one phone rep to another, eventually I was directed to this online chat "solution". Feel free to review and come to you own conclusion but in general if there was another product that I could use, I would never use Adobe anything ever again and more specifically Adobe DC.
[what follows is a chat log that shows the op was not helped. i'm not sure he wants help, but in case he does i added the only relevent info below - kglad]
Hi joelh63383059 ,
Sorry for the issue you are facing. Can you please share following details to help us identify and resolve the issue ASAP:
- Acrobat Pro DC version you are using.
- 1 sample document where the issue is constantly reproducible.
- Is this issue specific to one file or are you facing the issue on multiple files?
The first issue that comes up is a failed to load error.
Next, any fill areas highlighted in blue will not allow any text modification. Not text added or deleted. This happens on multiple documents and these documents are not protected or restricted.
start with: click help > repair installation.
I have done that multiple times. I haven't seen anything change.
I've been using Acrobat Pro for over 12 years and this PRO DC is the worst, worst, worst version EVER!
What is going on??!!! I have to uninstall and go to an earlier version. What is Adobe doing about this!!??
This is the opposite of progress!! Please please stop ruining perfectly good programs to give someone a make-work job, or whatever happened here. It's a bloody disaster. Totally dissatisfied. ADOBE: Fix it NOW!!
How the f do I simply create a text box to write the date in on a w-9 pdf? There truly isn't a worst company than Adobe and I love how they charge for upgrades to new "products" that are worse than previous editions. The online chat help is a joke, they couldn't help themsleves
I agree, Adobe you are crap. Everything was ok until Camera Raw 12.3. It's crap!
Same here. Acrobat DC is a major step backwards, even now, 5 years after release it is still SO SLOW, uses too much space around everything (designed for iPad, not professional desktop use), vertical space reduction is a disaster. Comments, OMG, comments is SO SLOW and frustrating. To select text in a comment, I double click on the text... but no, it then changes the comment window to a smaller text view and I have to double click again to get the text, adding steps to my workflow instead of reducing them. This is the opposite of progress.
