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.

I had the same error. i was able to make it go away by:
Tools > Organize Pages
Extract Pages - select the pages i want to create a new document
Pain the the rear, but it worked.
Just to say that this worked a treat for me to. Thanks.
Thank you!! After trying about 10 different solutions from another page, unsuccessfully - this actually worked.
Unfortunately, I haven't got luck with this solution.
Acrobat just saves empty pages. The file size is 7kb.
I followed your advice in Feb 2021, and your solution was the only one that actually solved my problem. God bless ya!
Yours in Christ,
THANK YOU KINDLY!!!
Thanks, I had the same problem as you mentioned it was a pain in the rear. Was able resolve the problem with the solution you provided.
Worked like a charm!!! Thanks!!!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I was going crazy trying to save my documents. Have a blessed day!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
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.
Thank you buddy, this worked for me. saved my day.
It works. Thanks a lot!!
I was able to save by printing to PDF.
Extract pages did not work for me.
file>save a copy worked for me
Thank you !!!! This worked .
I just pressed Print to PDF and it saved as a PDF. This works too!
The instruction works like a chime.
