  1. Comment list takes too long to load

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

    • Highlight properties multiple Colours

      Would it be possible to make a small enhancement under highlight properties.

      Can development add addition default colours to allow for quick selection.

      When I study I highlight my documents and use an array of colour to keep concepts together.

      It detracts from the process having drill down separately adjust opacity and colour.

        • Use the Drawing Tools to highlight objects

          I would like the addition of a checkmark within the drawings tool. I find the new highlighter blob tool kind of clunky, and I'd much prefer to use the drawing markup tools when I need to highlight objects. But right now, with the drawing markup tool I have to reduce the opacity, in order to get the object below to show through. I'd like the Drawing Markup Tools to actually be able to highlight the objects, using the highlight blending mode as the Highlighter tool does.

          Please add a checkmark at the top of the color picker that for "Highlight"

          • Editing or creating new stamps involves too many steps

            I'm required to fill in a lot of forms with my signature and the date. And since the date always changes, I edit my signature image in PSD and then bring it in to Acrobat and make (or edit) a stamp. But in Acrobat the process of editing a stamp with a new image is grueling! ... 10 steps! (see attached).

            • highlighter tool

              1) need a way to click highlight over and over w/o having to reselect the highlighter tool
              2) need a way to go from a selected tool (stamp, highlighter, etc) to hand or select tool quickly (example: dbl right click mouse)

                  • Comment UI was better in former version

                    Each comment in the column on the right hast to be opened to be checked with done (check mark). But then the answer-field is opening and the answering field of the former comment will be closed. When the checkmark is not set, the comment is always shifting a bit up. That makes a work with 500 corrections really bumpy/uneasy.
                    The size of each comment is also too big. In the former version there were 17 comments on one screen, now there are just 9 comments!
                    Make one comment without opening and smaller and more clearly arranged without moving!!

                      • Adding Tools to the Tool Bar Process is Just Plain Crazy

                        Should be able to drag and drop tools you use often to the customized tool bar at the top of the document. Why does it have to be so hard to do that?

                            • HIghlighting Text

                              For the highlight function, there should be the ability to change colors easily. Right now the process is cumbersome and time-consuming. When I have to be able to access my highlighted test for citations, it would be wonderful to be able to export to word documents with a click.

                                Is there anyway to go back to the prior view? I understand that sometimes updates need to be done, however, existing functionality should not be taken away.

                                • Print all comments on one page

                                  I have a ten page pdf. this document has about a dozen comments scattered on six different pages. In Acrobat Pro DC, there is no way to get all the comments to print out to one page (or more for a lot of comments), with each comment including the document page number of the comment. The default options will print the comments page by page, which seems a waste. In the example sited Acrobat would print out six pages to show what amounts to one-half a page of text.

                                  • Add option to make comment pane open automatically if there are comments

                                    Commenting should be listed as one of the options under Document Properties > Initial View. I find that new many people have a hard time finding the comments, because the right hand pane is hidden and they don't know to click on that tiny little right-pointing arrow. Pleas add the option for the comment pane to be open automatically, just as we can already do with the bookmarks panel.

                                    • 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.

                                        It would be great to have multiple colors or options so you can highlight different topics and organize your note making.
