We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
When using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC to edit documents (several documents, but one after the other, not at the same time), the top and bottom (about 1 inch) of each monitor goes black. I have tried replacing docking stations and monitors - to cover some of the possible hardware issues, however, since the screens do not act up until Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is used, I am strongly leaning towards an issue with the Adobe software.
The setup is a Dell Lattiude latpop connected to a USB Pluggable dock with an additional 2 monitors.
The monitors do not act up in any way until Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is used, so this problem seems to be caused by this application.
I saw a couple of older posts which deal with changing the document setting for PDF/A View mode to Never and will try this setting, however, since the post was so old, I was not certain if the problems were the same or not. This does not have to do with the positioning of the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC window on the screen, but, as I mentioned above, the top and bottom 1" of the screen is black on the monitors.
Check to see if your video card drivers are up to date. Don't trust the OS update--find out your video card brand and model; go directly to the video card maker's website and locate the latest video card driver.
Thank you - we will investigate this possibility. Since this only happens when Adobe software is used, I had not prioritized this as possibly a solution, so will looke to update the driver, as needed.
