I just registered and installed Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and I cannot save PDF files.

I decided to try the trial period because I was so frustrated with the lack of functionality in Adobe Reader.  I need to be able to sign documents, and even when DC reader works, it takes minutes to open a single document.

First, I uninstalled DC Reader.  That took about a half hour.

Next I signed up for the trial period.  I was surprised that Acrobat was so difficult to download.  I had to attempt a few browser tricks before I could even start the download.

After finally installing Acrobat Pro, I was unable to save PDF files.  I've tried multiple files and tried saving them to new locations, but I get the same error.

To add insult to injury, I couldn't contact tech support because I haven't registered my product.  (That sounds like an error I'd get back when people bought software in a box at the local office store.)

Please either help me resolve this issue or cancel my trial period immediately.  I have no desire to pay for a product that doesn't work and isn't supported.

Unfortunately, I haven't got luck with this solution.

Acrobat just saves empty pages. The file size is 7kb.

I have the same issue with a 30 page document.  I followed the instructions above-except there was not an option to save at the end.  I have 30 individual pages saved : (  What did I do wrong and why did Adobe make this so hard!!!

Extract pages emptied my form fields in the new copy so that was not a solution for me either.

 

I had this issue while trying to save some legal docs with lots of form fields. I tried a bunch of things and then got an error message that helped, so I did File -> Save a copy and that gave a warning but I was able to save what i needed which was a version of the form as submitted with form fields filled in.
