All I can say is I was able to install Acrobat 9 Pro on a system running Vista Home Premium with no trouble whatsoever, so it's unlikely to be a compatibility issue with Vista.
Clearly it's looking for a default scanner... watch closely for an option early in the installation process to enable scanner hardware, and if there is one, disable it. Sometimes it's easy to overlook options like this; they're often a small checkbox 'hidden' outside the central grouping.
I'm puzzled as to why it's looking for a specific scanner model, though. Possibly the drivers exist on your system and the installer is automatically detecting them...? If you can find those drivers, remove them. (Use the Device Manager to find this... both on your wife's personal user account and on the public account.)
It took me a YEAR and I finally just got it done last night! In the middle of the night! I'd get mad then leave it for months then go back to it...
But I still can't figure out how to make text BOLD! I have read all these posts. If anyone finds out how to please post it. Yet I can do it in this post
how silly is that?
I have 8 on my laptop and can do it but no way in 9 ? I can't even find the options tab the instructions keep talking about.
This is the exact problem I am having and can't figure it out. Been sitting here for one whole DAY just trying to figure out how to make text I have typed
in BOLD!!!! Did anyone ever find out? This mans post is a YEAR OLD!
If anyone ever finds out please e mail me how! Thank you.
To make the text bold, first highlight on the desired text and right click (or control + click on Mac) then go to Properties. Under Properties, go to Font to select the Font you want and then select the bold version of the font from the drop down box. For example, if the text you want to make bold is Arial, click on the drop down box and scroll down to "Arial, Bold" and then select that text.
I have the same problem: I would like to make something bold but can't find how. I highlighted the text to be highlighted, right clicked as recommended, but there was no "Properties" option in the context menu. I am using Acrobat 7.0. The form is from a client and I have few choices here. I am brand new to Acrobat; does anyone have any advice?
I may have the answer. But I need to give a backstory. I have Adobe Acrobat Professional 9.4.5 for Mac OS X 10.6.8. And I'm filling out a pdf that was created in Acrobat by a coworker. I wasn't able to modfiy the font properties (like bold, italic, etc.) in the "Fields" he built in to it.
So here's how i fixed it. It may not work for everyone.
For non-form text aka regular text
Boy that was one long-winded answer, but i hope it helps out.
