Could you please let me know if you are facing this issue with any PDF that you try to open or only with a specific PDF? Also, do you face the same issue while accessing PDFs in the browser as well?
Please download the PDF at: kb2.adobe.com/cps/837/cpsid_83708/attachments/Acrobat_Reader_ReleaseNote_10.1.2.pdf and see if Acrobat still stalls for some time while rendering it.
Add folder path (where all your pdf are)
It work for me even for the pdf that are no inside this folder
Then a go back to add one more folder and the first folder that i add was not there
Did a repair acrobat
Go back to preference an the folder add is back
So i decide to uncheck "Automatically trust sites from my Win os security zone"
Since then everything work fine for me so i don't know witch part of this process fix my problem
"Automatically trust sites from my Win os security zone"
This has helped alot. I was entering a document and then after a few seconds it would freeze for 20-30 seconds and then come good, darn frustrating! Turned off "Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zone" now allows me to operate as normal. Every once in a while a document would pause but I don't believe it is related to this issue.
Thanks for the suggestion.
I changed recently used documents list to 1 [Preferences/Documents]. This has resovled the problem for me so far.
Acrobat Version: 10.1.9
Document Size: 42x30
File location: Desktop
File creator: CutePDF Writer
Application: PScript5.dll Version 5.2.2
PDF Producer: GPL Ghostscript 8.15
PDF Version: 1.6 (Acrobat 7.x)
Prior to that, I tried unchecking "Automatically trust sites from my Win OS security zones" [Preferences/Security (Enhanced)]
and unchecking "Enable Enhanced Security" to no avail.
Hi, I was actually searching for a solution to this problem for my Mac (2013 Mac Pro, 6x3.5ghz, 64 gb ram, 12 tb raid 0, all updates to Acrobat and OS X 10.9 - really should never have an issue with programs hanging) and tried SumitV's suggestions. Lo and behold, my recent documents list was set to 100 by default. Bringing that down to 10 has solved the issue. If your system is slower, taking it down to 5 or 1 may help.
My adobe pro constantly freezes it is unusable. on Widows 8.1. always worked before upgrade. Works on other machines without Windows *. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no use. It is awful. PDFs won't open from Outlook. PDFs open otherwise but immediately freeze up. I can't even change preferences because preferences freezes. Something needs o be done.
And here it was because I thought Adobe hates Apple. Turns out they hate Microsoft too. Sorry, but I don't have any solutions - just adding my gripes to the list. Acrobat Pro has always been a mess on my Mac - randomly freezing and crashing, taking forever for some tools to work, randomly leaving some tools active for a time, then requiring you to re-click them for every use, scrolling freezes that last for 10 seconds... it goes on. I kind of expect that by 2015 that these software issues would not surface in ANY software anymore, anywhere. But there is only one Acrobat, and Adobe knows it. What choice do we have but to put up with this half-baked application?
