  1. Full Tools, Menu customisation

    Acrobat DC wastes so much screen space in non-customisable areas - It is common to 'snap' the Acrobat Application to Half-Screen - but doing so hides many menu Tools, but ALWAYS leaves 'Home, Tools, Document & then The Login Name. - These are rarely (never) used.
    Please allow them to be Hidden, Or return Menu/Tool icons to a 'normal' design/style as used in the previous 10 versions of Acrobat.
    'PRO' does not = Tablet user.

      • Time saving toolbars

        Give us more useful Toolbar with plenty of stuff - must make endless useless clicks to access simple things. Just to Open a page needs 2 clicks! This wastes time. Hover over text that fan open files would help.

        This is a terrible product to use - thank goodness for the free stuff Foxit and PDF Creator. Not user friendly and pro-production at all.

        • Ability to add more toolbars

          It was very cool in early versions that it was possible to add more toolbars. Its annoying that the space is limited for the extra tools I want to add into the tool bar.
          I would like to ask for adding the ability to add a new-line/toolbar so all the tools I add can be visible without need to expand a menu by clicking on the dots at the right side.

          • Reopen PDFs Launched in previous sessions on Opening Acrobat/Reader

            A Prereference in Acrobat should be there which loads the last session of opened tabs/pdfs on relaunching. Also could provide options to save/load previous sessions.
            This may be Important to the users who work on several pdfs at a time but wish to retain the opened docs in the next Acrobat session.
            Also Session could be managed to retain even after machine restart and then launching acrobat.

            • Add Google Drive as option in Storage Accounts

              My company uses Google Drive for file sharing as many other companies do. Google Drive is currently not listed as an option for connected cloud storage but needs to be.

              • Set Default Font for Edit Tool

                Why can we not set a default font in our editing tool. One already seems to be the default, but I can't change it.

                  For Acrobat XI, for the ‘Add Text’ tool under Tools→Content Editing, Minion Pro is the default font and unfortunately this cannot be changed. There are no plans to fix this. We would recommend upgrading to Acrobat DC.

                  As a workaround in Acrobat XI, you use ‘Add Text Comment’ tool under “Comment” where you can set a default font. To do this, set the font attributes you want. Then, select the comment where you set these attributes in the Comments List panel, right-click to access the Properties and then choose Make Properties Default from the dialog.

                  Hope this helps.

                  Thanks,
                  -amboo

                • Remove tools sidebar selector, or make it an option, or an option to move it to the top or the bottom

                  The tool sidebar is too close to the scroll bar, and make it difficult to use and select the scroll bar, which is almost always used. Make the position and/or the visibility of the tools sidebar a preference, since this redundant control is available using many other existing ways. This is the must frustrating, duplicative, and unusually located user control I have seen in many years.

                  • Precise placement of objects in Prepare Form and Edit Form

                    I would like to see a "transform" capability similar to InDesign, with a panel or set of boxes in which the actual pixel X & Y coordinates, as well as the dimensions of an object, can be precisely set. Currently, the resolution on this type of placement appears to be set at 2 points, and I would like to be able to fine-tune that to pixels or 10,000ths of an inch as I can in InDesign. That's the basic idea, but read on for rationale.
                    I work mainly in InDesign to create pdf forms that I then take into Acrobat…

                      Getting comment list to show in Acrobat DC takes way too much time. It's a drag. At least on Mac OS.

                      • Feature request: Resize page feature

                        I don't know how this happened, but I exported a print out of a web page that was sized at 8.5x11 as a PDF, and when I opened the PDF in Adobe DC, somehow the page size turned into 13.17x16.78, and now when I print the PDF, it cuts out everything on the page that is outside of the 8.5x11 paper size. I have been trying and trying to just resize the PDF to 8.5x11, but I can't find this feature anywhere - and I've really been looking hard! So if there was a way you could add a feature…

                        • Create Expandable Text Field Forms

                          Adobe Acrobat Pro needs to have the ability to create expandable text field forms that allow the text box to expand when the user types similar to what you can do with Livecycle.

                          This is a feature that has been requested a lot online. Currently Acrobat Pro only allows multi-line text field forms with a scroll bar, but you cannot create an expanding text field form that increases in the height of the text field to accomodate more text.

                          The functionality to create this even in Livecycle is too clunky and complicated to use.

                          • Dock Properties Bar

                            Through version 9, the properties bar was dock-able. Since X it is not, but it should be. Properties are always useful, it is annoying to have it floating over the document when I have toolbar space at the top of my screen sitting empty and gray and sad. I get that the properties toolbar is context sensitive so it will grow and shrink, but it was in 9 also. Please make all toolbars dockable!

                            • Adobe Acrobat Pro XI vs. Adobe Acrobat DC

                              Can we get the Acrobat XI version of the Scanning stuff back? This multiple page setup in order to get to scanning a document is horrendous. When you update things, try to avoid bloating them into more steps, more bells and whistles that are just eye candy and do little to enhance anything....I like when we go update and find out that the newer version has less garbage on it, less junk added to it for overall performance gain instead of the industry standard of new versions = more bloated programming = less productivity and horrible GUI - Why does…

                              • Add Search Function/Box to Cloud File Storage Services (e.g. Box, Dropbox, Onedrive)

                                We need the ability to query a Cloud storage account for a present folder (and the ability to create a new folder) when opening or saving files directly from Adobe Acrobat.

                                Since it seems Adobe uses the same infrastructure for all cloud storage systems, if this is implemented for one company, I'd imagine it'd be entered for all compatible ones (Box, Dropbox, Onedrive, etc.).

                                We already have this functionality in the Microsoft Office integrations of these same cloud providers, so using Acrobat significantly slows the process of opening or saving files from the cloud when one has to go through…

                                • It would be great if Acrobat was multi=threaded. I routinely have to OCR 4000 page documents which almost always fail and take hours

                                  Acrobat needs to be multithreaded. I have a top of the line machine with 32g of ram and an I7-6700k processor an m2 SSD, yet am unable to successfully run OCR on a 4000 page document without splitting it up into 250-500page chunks, which is cumbersome. Even then, acrobat will only use 12% of my resources.

                                      • Organize attachments into folders or categories

                                        We have many attachments to each of our PDF files. It would be really great if the attached files could be organized by folder of category and not alphabetically. Please see attachment for an example.
