I'm using Adobe Acrobat Pro on a PC. About three days ago, I started getting an error message while trying to add images. It doesn't matter what format the image is in. When I try to insert the image, I get an "unknown error" message (see attachment) and I'm told "the selected image could not be converted and placed in the document." Nothing has changed with respect to my system in the last few days. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for reporting this to us.
As per the description I guess it has been working fine a couple of days ago. Is that right?
What has changed recently is the new update. To understand better whether its a latest patch that's causing trouble or something else. Please share the following details-
1- Exact version of Adobe Acrobat. Open Acrobat>Edit>About Acrobat
2- Exact OS version
Meanwhile, steps to perform-
Navigate to Adobe Acrobat>Edit>Preferences>Security (Enhanced)>disable "Protected View" and "Enhanced Security">OK>close and reopen Acrobat
Note: these changes are only for testing purpose. Once tested, please change it back to the previous setting.
Let us know the result.
Thank you. Yes you are correct. It was working fine until a couple of days ago.
