  1. QuickBooks database server manager

    QuickBooks is the software for accounting and bookkeeping developed by Intuit that is a gem for all the small and mid-sized enterprises around the world. Almost every crucial task is accomplished through this software without wasting much time. Sometimes QB users find some error within the system while using it and that irritates the users most of the time especially when it relates to any network connectivity issue like QuickBooks Error 404. That's why Intuit develops the QuickBooks Database Server Manager(https://qbenterprisesupport.com/quickbooks-database-server-manager/). This software will eradicate all the issues that a user could face using multi-user mode.

  3. Cloud documents did not sync all comments across devices

    I had started adding comments to a long form document in Acrobat DC on Windows desktop and saved the document to my Document Cloud. Everything appeared to have synced.

    Later, I accessed the same document on my Chromebook using the Acrobat app (logged into my account). The comments WERE synced and I proceeded as expected, and added more comments.

    Another day, I reopened the document back on my Windows desktop machine and I believe all of the comments thus far had been synced. I proceeded through the document and continued adding more comments. Each time the document was saved, it…

  4. Markup tool, Text Callout font size

    Adobe can do better with the Markup tool as more people are transitioning to digital. I used to use Bluebeam and mark up drawings for review. I'm using Adobe now and I cannot change the text size inside the Text Callout that I drew. How inconvenience is this?

  5. Sticky Note Bug

    When creating a new sticky note, it is either created on the previous or on the next page, but not on the page I wanted to create it. Please fix this issue asap, because I need a reliable pdf-application for work, otherwise I meed night to look for alternatives after years of satisfactory work with AAR.

  6. Setting feature for portrait or landscape as DEFAULT OPENING FEATURE

    Please create a feature where you can change settings so you can choose your default for opening and viewing documents. This way you have the option of Landscape or Portrait. Currently, you only have the option of Portrait, then you must edit to Landscape. It causes projects to be cut apart, and you're unable to move pieces from one page to another. This would be the best alternative, especially when working with Excel spreadsheets. Thank you so much for taking the time to look over my suggestion. I hope you find it useful as well.

  7. Stamp tool - keep from selecting other stamps

    Our QA/QC process requires checkmark stamps of different colors placed in close proximity to each other and the original markup. When applying stamps, the tool often selects other stamps in the vicinity. Would be nice to go through a document that contains stamps and comments, and add the final "good to go" checkmark without the tool keep trying to select stuff already in the doc.

  8. Auto resize bounding box to contents for Callout and Text Box comments

    When marking up PDFs, some clients want text to be immediately visible "on the page," i.e., in Callouts and Text Boxes vs. added with the less easy to see Insert Text at Cursor or Replace Text functions. Sometimes the text I need to add is just a single comma or hyphen, but the default bounding box size is much larger, and resizing these by hand is time-consuming. I'd like an option to fit bounding boxes to their contents without having to edit box sizes by hand. (Text Boxes autofit if you click and drag with the Text Box tool selected…

  9. Automatically delete my comments

    My comment (e.g. add text box) will be removed without my control in some occasion when I edit the comment or add a new one. This type of problem has happen a lot of time in the past one to two months.

  10. Allow a "Classic" Acrobat theme or other customization for focus

    The new themes available are very distracting for commenting on documents. Please allow us to revert to something more closely resembling the Acrobat XI theme, or at least allow for something between the Light Gray and Dark Gray display themes, so attention can be more focused on the page instead of the tools. Also please allow the comment sidebar to be made more narrow, as it takes up about 1/3 of a view when viewing two files on a single screen.

  11. Delete shows up as an insert/text replacement

    I use the backspace key in commenting to strike thru text. Sometimes when I do this, the strike-thru shows up as a blue line and it is connected to a previous insertion. I can get it to work if I click on the strikethru text icon on the toolbar, but I'd rather it work when I use the keyboard shortcut.

    In the attached file, you can see where two sets of text are connected to the same insertion, making it hard to tell where I want text replaced.

  13. Automatically open pop-up note when using Replace Text icon

    When Replace Text is selected and a relevant portion of text is highlighted, a comment box doesn't automatically open up. If I choose this icon my aim is to replace the text, so why wouldn't a pop-up open automatically (or at least have an option to turn said feature on in settings/preferences)? Annoyingly, I need to right click and manually open the pop-up. Please fix or explain how I enable this feature.

  14. Making it possible to change thickness of underlining in Acrobat Reader DC under Windows

    Unfortunately, I cannot change the thickness of my added underlined or strike-through. The symbol for different thickness in the toolbar is greyed out.
    I also would appreciate two different symbols for underlining; one for straight lines, the other for squiggly lines.
    I used FoxitReader before and must say that the way to place comments seems to me better solved there. Maybe something similar could be added in Adobe Acrobat Reader?

  15. End a Shared Review, writer still has access to comments or can save them offline

    I want the ability to end a "Shared Review" (to prevent new comments from coming in) yet still have access to the comments after I've closed a review to additional comments.

    Currently, I have to leave Shared Reviews open until I've cleaned up/followed-up on each of the comments reviewers have left or else the comments disappear.

    I don't like the options for saving/printing/outputting the comments to paper or files; they're not nearly as useful as having it all right in Acrobat Pro with the tools I normally use.

    Please add the feature to close a shared review to new comments…

  16. Edit default text (color, font, size) for Measure Tool

    The measurement tool lacks any ability to change the text font, size, and color for measurement labels, the default is not sufficient especially because it tends to glitch and turn from an Ariel type font to a very spaced out Courier font which is not convenient for measuring small distances, the perimeter and area measure tool should also enable text callouts.

  17. checkboxes on comments are broken

    Since a few Versions, we (on macOS) cannot check the checkboxes on comments. When we do, another comment appears (each time we click) stating that the checkbox has been checked (but it does not show ith checked).
    When working with hundreds of comments, often using from different computers, it is imperative to know, which ones have been dealt with and which ones have not.
    Please fix the checking of the comments (and have a look into why those only work for the computer they have been checked and are not being displayed correctly on other machines!).

  18. Let dropbox host shared reviews

    I want to do a Shared Review, but I do NOT want to use Document Cloud to do it because the commenting functions are so limited.

    Why not revamp the Send for Shared Commenting to include Dropbox/Box/Google Drive?

    The original Send for Shared commenting including WebDav, Network folder, and Sharepoint, but it was designed about a decade ago, long before cloud storage services became so popular.

    Since Dropbox lets multiple users have read/write access to a folder, it would be great to incorporate that functionality into Acrobat Shared Reviews. Users can already open and save files to and from a…

  19. Crash when closing multiple PDF windows from the same file with comment pane open

    Found a reproducible crash in Adobe Reader DC -both free and Pro version (likely 100% occurrence in core i7 U series 7th, 8th gen, Xeon Gold, AMD Athlon):

    Prerequisite:
    Under PREFERENCES>GENERAL, "Open documents as new tabs in the same window (require relaunch)" is UNCHECKED. This means every time I open a new PDF file, it will appear as a new window instead of nested tabs.
    - Opening a PDF file with highlighter markups
    - Opening a comment pane of that file
    - Then opening a new PDF window (from the same file): Window>New window
    - Opening another PDF file or…

  20. When deleting comments, the acceptence/rejection of the comment stays in the document

    Hello,

    When deleting comments in a PDF-document in Adobe Acrobat Pro, the comments themselves are indeed removed, but if these comments were once accepted or rejected, this information stays around in the PDF document. Adobe Acrobat Pro know to ignore it and doesn't show it, but when opening that document on iOS for example, that information is still shown as some sort of comment, which is impossible to find (and thus remove) in Adobe Acrobat, because Adobe ignores these.

    This is highly undesirable. Can this be fixed please?

    Thank you,
    Best regards,
    Jeroen
