    Action Wizard quits after a single file

    WOberon

      I am using Acrobat 11 Pro on Windows 7 pc.

       

      I made a action wizard to

       

      1. OCR text recognition  (default settings) no prompt

      2. Reduce File size  (Acrobat 10.0 and up setting) no prompt

      3. Save File (default settings)

       

      I can then either select multiple files or a folder and then when I press start it will do one file then stop.

      To do the next file I have to press start again. It looks like it does the next file (only really fast); however no change is actually made.

      The first file is successfully OCR and saved the rest it does nothing to the file even though it says it is complete.

      No error message or other prompt comes on screen.

      Below is log file from doing 3 files.   First file it actually did what it was supposed to do.  Next 2 no change to actual file.   Also note the times are listed in the log as the same for all 3 even though I had to press start before each one.

      The files are not password protected or locked in any way. 

      I can start the process again using a previously failed file as the #1 file and it will work and any subsequent files will not.

       

       

      How to fix this behavior?
