  1. Ctrl-F feature broken in new update

    When perusing a PDF file, using the Ctrl-F feature to search the file for a word or phrase causes the entire program to shut down completely. Started on new update yesterday for the PRO DC Version 17.012.20098 update.

    • JUNK! Not intuitive at all.

      It's actually soo bad, it's a waste of time trying to explain how ridiculous this program is now to edit any docs to anyone at Adobe....Going to BlueBeam...

      • make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC

        make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC. Add option for preferences to disable the 'application frame'. This is super annoying as every time you close a pdf you have to press command W on the keyboard twice to close the windows.

        • Please provide a Preference to condense the Comments panel

          I often deal with PDFs with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of edits. The Comments panel in Acrobat DC includes way too much blank space, including a title line ("Strikethrough Text", "Highlighted Text", etc.) and needlessly provides a default "Type your reply..." area for every comment. This isn't Facebook (meaning, replies aren't always necessary). Please provide preferences that allow comments to appear in more compact form, as they did with Acrobat X or Acrobat 11.

          • Please restore ability to copy and paste comment shapes (arrow, line, rectangle, oval) from one PDF to another

            Since updating to Acrobat Pro DC (version 2017.012.20098), I cannot individually copy arrow, line, rectangle, or oval shapes (with or without accompanying comments) from one PDF and paste them into another PDF. As an editor, I use these tools all day to mark corrections and I regularly have the need to carry over unaddressed/outstanding edits to the next version of the project. Without the ability to simply copy and paste, I have to redo a lot of work—losing efficiency and opening up room for error. Please restore this fundamental function!

            • Add a setting that allows for deletion of the recent files list at the time of exiting the program.

              Created a setting allows for the deletion of the recent files list when exiting Acrobat. The recent files list gives persons the ability to access files without having to go through security and can display private information depending on the naming convention used.

              • Open a file

                I am able to Open a File function, but once I email it for testing when the receiving user would like to open the file, they are unable.

                How do I get the file with the form?

                • mailto

                  Adobe Acrobat XI Pro mailto link opens IE first and then Outlook 2016. Default program for mailto protocol is set on Outlook 2016 and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC opens mailto link on Outlook 2016 only.

                  Reset Acrobat XI Pro did not resolve the issue.

                  Please assist on rectifying this.

                    All Icon based navigation is really confusing. Please stick to regular menu navigation like the rest of the world

                      • Font tracking in Forms to allow better readability

                        Allow users to create more readable text forms when using smaller font sizes. Give us the ability to set the tracking (space between the characters).

                        Not everyone is young!

                        Cheers!

                            • Request: ability to remotely see a list of all computers using a license and then sign out a single computer

                              For example: I have a license for two computers. Sometimes while traveling, I need to use Acrobat Pro DC on my laptop. While attempting to activate Acrobat on this laptop, I receive a warning that both licenses are in use. Only two options are available: (1) log out both licenses. Not acceptable - I only want to log out one of the active licenses, not both. OR (2) log out one of the licenses manually. But this is impossible since I am not in front of either computer.

                              So again, I would like the ability to view both active computers…

                                • BUG: sort comments by author not showing all

                                  When I sort comments by author, then try to select all comments by one of those authors, I am unable to select all of them, only a portion. It *looks* like it grabs them all, but if I change the properties, then look at the sort again, it shows only a portion changed and the others still have the old properties.

                                  • Extract fonts from PDF files

                                    Sometimes PDF files contain fonts that is not currently installed, so I have to use another font which doesn't look nice. It is a good idea that Adobe Acrobat can extract those fonts.

                                    • Invert page order

                                      I suggest creating a new function to the "organize pages" that would allow to invert the order of pages. Very useful if I'm reading in Japanize

                                      • Read-only fields selectable in PDF form

                                        When creating a form in Acrobat Pro DC, fields set to be read-only and locked can still receive focus while they should be skipped and their contents be unselectable. This happens even when the PDF is saved as Reader Extended with "enable more tools", regardless of whether the resulting PDF is opened in Acrobat Pro or Adobe Reader (DC)

                                        • Reading order list

                                          It would be a HUGE improvement for the work I do if the reading order also could be changed by typing the order numbers in the order list. The reading order list can be very long sometimes, with endless, tedious drag and drops on each page as it is now.
                                          It is also annoying that the list jumps back to the top each time you re-order the list.
