The search in Acrobat now includes the content of the file in addition to the filename for the files stored in the Document Cloud.
The following are the key performance improvements in this release:
When you print a document to PDF using the Adobe PDF printer, you can now choose whether you want to replace the existing PDF file having the same filename in the selected directory. By default, the Replace Existing PDF option is set to Always.
To change the setting, set the Adobe PDF Output Folder to any folder, and then choose one of the options in the Replace Existing PDF drop-down list:
To sign out from Acrobat, click your profile picture (avatar) in the upper-right corner of Acrobat and then click Sign Out.
When you right-click a file in Windows Explorer, you see a new Share Using Adobe Acrobat option to share files directly from the context menu.
Adobe is testing this new PDF sharing experience on Windows. Therefore, the new experience may not be available to all Acrobat DC users.
Also, in the right-click context menu of Windows Explorer, the earlier Convert to Adobe PDF And Email option is now changed to Create And Share Adobe PDF.
When you optimize one or more PDFs, the multiple progress bars that used to appear are now replaced with a single progress bar.
The Edit Text and Images tool is now added to the top toolbar for easy access.
If you have customized your quick tools, the Edit Text and Images tool will not be visible in the toolbar.
The Enhance Scans tool is now renamed to Scan & OCR to better portray and emphasize on OCR capabilities.
Applicable to Acrobat DC on macOS
The Adobe Create PDF online service has a file size limitation of 100 MB. When you try to convert a Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file larger than 100 MB, the error message that used to appear is now simplified for better context. The dialog box also provides an option to use the Acrobat local PDF converter instead.
A new floating Open in Acrobat button is displayed in Google Chrome when you open an online PDF. On clicking the button, the PDF is downloaded and opened in Acrobat Reader.
Adobe is testing this feature. Therefore, the new experience may not be available to all Acrobat Reader users.
