Using which program(s)?
[topic moved to Reader/Acrobat DC for mobile forum]
Would you explain how you created PDF documents from your iPad before? Did you use the PDF Pack online subscription service?
The "Create PDF" feature is still available in the new Acrobat DC app to the subscribers to the PDF Pack service.
You can swipe from left to right to display the panel below and tap "Create PDF".
Is this what you are looking for? If not, please provide us more details so that we can assist you.
The Create PDF feature is part of Adobe PDF Pack (the paid subscription service) and is used to convert a non-PDF file format to PDF.
I see that the "Getting Started" PDF document is opened in the screenshot above. You cannot convert a PDF document to a PDF document.
The error message is trying to tell you that you need to open the "supported format" (e.g. Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, RTF) then tap Create PDF to convert it to a PDF document.
Please take a look at the following document about Adobe PDF Pack (which also includes Export PDF).
Do you actually want to covert a document to PDF using Create PDF? If not, please let us know what you are trying to do so that we can assist you. Thank you.
i don't want to convert, want to start with a blank PDF and insert some text and images
Unfortunately, that's not what Create PDF does. There is no option to create a blank PDF document in Acrobat DC mobile products or the desktop version of Reader. Sorry for the confusion.
You will need the desktop version of Acrobat Pro to create a blank PDF document and add text and images.
Free trial of Acrobat Pro DC (desktop app)

1. If you have the latest iOS then you have access to Apple Pages.
2. Open the Apple Pages app.
3. Click "Create Pages"
4. Select "Blank"
5. Click the "Share" button
6. Select "Open in Another App"
7. In the "Open in Another App" dialog's "Choose a format" section select "PDF"
8. In the "Choose App" context dialog select "Open in Adobe Acrobat"
9. Now you are in a blank document in Adobe Acrobat Mobile for iOS.
Please note that you can add text *annotations* but cannot add real text or images in Acrobat DC mobile products.
Pages for iOS is not free for iPad but maybe a better App to start with a blank document and for inserting text and image objects.
Hmmm... I got it on both my personal iPad and my personal iPhone and I don't remember explicitly paying for it at the App Store. It was offered as a download on an update. It may be though that it is offered as part of a new purchase. Well you could always do it on the Mac or on Windows later OSes. They both offer the capability of creating PDF blank pages.
