Hello!

A serious problem occurs when using pdfmaker.

When I convert a docx file to pdf in MS Word with acrobat pdfmaker addin, it runs successfully with no problem, but as soon as the pdf file is created, the original docx file crashes.

As I run MS Word once again, a message box occurs saying that acrobat pdfmaker office com addin has encountered a problem, I should disable this addin.

I don't want to do that. But if I don't do, this problem always exists.

The acrobat version is the newest 2019 version, and the MS Word is office 365. The OS system is windows 10.

Thanks!

Yes, 18 months on and this problem still hasn't been fixed. Acrobat PDF Maker when called from MS Word ("Save as Adobe PDF") hangs on documents more than a few pages long. Even clicking "Cancel" doesn't do much - it asks if you want to stop PDFMaker, and when you say "Yes" it just hangs again, so you need to use Task Manager to stop it. MS Word's native save as PDF function works fine, so it's annoying that Adobe isn't able to save a Word document in an Adobe format reliably, but Word is able to.

Yep. That's the worst part, they will take your money each month, but if you ask for support they will rattle off a shopping list of troubleshooting tasks, making it as long as possible, and as inconvenient as possible, so you'll just give up asking them for help and just keep giving them money each month.

 

Then, they'll mark it "Solved", since they get to keep your money, and not do anything! See - its solved!

 

BTW: On a new, freshly installed machine, in Oct 2020, and this is still an issue.
