Hi Kylel,

Sorry for the  delay in response. As I understand from the description above, the Acrobat is crashing/freezing while using highlight tool, Is that correct?

Please check for any pending updates for Acrobat from Help>Check for updates.

You may also try to repair the installation file of Acrobat from help>Repair Installation.

Please check with any other PDF file, whether the Acrobat is crashing while using the Highlight tool.

If the issue still persistes, please share the following details:

* Is it Adobe Reader or Acrobat Pro/Standard DC installed?

* Is it a Mac or Windows machine.

* Check the dot version of installed software from Help>About Adobe Acrobat.

Keep us posted with the results and the details requested.

Regards,

Anand Sri.

I'm dealing with the same problem, and it really is disruptive to my process of highlighting while I read. I pay for this product, and I don't think it should be freezing and crashing when a user is simply attempting to utilize one of the program's most mundane tools.

I've already tried the troubleshooting tips mentioned above, and they do not solve the issue. My situation's details are as follows:

*Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

*Windows

*2017.012.20098

Thank you,

Aubrey Ward

No, your response was not helpful whatsoever, and I don't see how you think it could be. Giving me a link to old posts with similar questions that were never solved there either is useless and a waste of time.

How about passing this along to someone who knows what they're doing?

Thanks.

Hi Aubreylward,

I apologize for the inconvenience caused. Hope you have tried all the troubleshooting steps from the above-shared links and it seems that the issue is not resolved.

Please uninstall and reinstall the Acrobat using the Adobe cleaner tool: Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs  Link: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html

then restart the computer, and then reinstall the Acrobat Pro DC: Download Pro or Standard versions of Acrobat DC, 2017, XI, or X  Link: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrobat-downloads.html

Hope this helps, and keep us posted with the results.

Regards,

Anand Sri.

Hi,

I know you'r just trying to do your best and that you can't change everything but, it doesn't change anything to troubleshoot it or to uninstall  and reinstall it if the program is bugged... Fix the goddamn program and release and update... Highlighting a document is the first thing people have done since paper and pencil is around, how the hell can't Adobe offer a decent tool for this? Fix it on your hand and admit your company has to work on it.

It may have been addressed but the issue is still happening with 2 different computers on 2 different versions. One of them is using the cloud monthly edition and one is the standalone version of Standard DC. Both have the same freezing issue while using the highlighter. All updates have been applied as you can see from the images.image1.pngimage2.png

Is there an update on this issue?

Some of my users are experiencing this problem with Adobe Acrobat 2017. All machines have the latest patch installed. We first noticed the problem around November of last year when we updated from Acrobat XI to 2017. We last tried upgrading memory in the machines from 8GB to 16GB but the problem still exists. Please assist.

Windows 10 Pro 64bit

i7 processor

16GB memory

Adobe Acrobat 2017

version 17.11.30079.5326

The problem has not returned after 2 weeks of testing after the update. Let's hope it stays that way! Thanks for your help!
