  1. BUG: cannot save file, text disappears

    Third time this week. Working on an existing PDF with commenting tools, and when I go to save, I get the message that the file cannot be saved. Try to save as, as suggested, and get the message that there's a file error, then the text of the file disappears. (Spread in screenshot is two solid pages of text.)

      • Change Highlight color with control click on mac

        It would be great if you could control click the Highlight tool to change the highlighter color and/or highlighted text. I like to use that function to tag different elements in documents and it seems very cumbersome to change colors of the highlight tool so I don't really use it much or I just use one color because you have to go to the color picker (which also disappears if you shrink the window, which I do because I have other non-adobe documents open that I am referencing.)

        Thanks for listening!

        • Can we have the old one back. This is too cumbersome.

          So hard to use and wastes so much of my time looking for things.
          I just need the preview/navigator on the side so I can rotate or crop and a highlighter in the tools and the hand to move the page around. Every time I open a file it defaults back to nothing I can use. Please bring back version 10

          • 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.

            • comment box in the way

              When typing in a text box ( and im sure others) the various font options popup gets in the way of what I am trying to type. The most frequent place I use text boxes is the top right of a page, which is completely unusable in the updated version of Adobe (which generally sucks in my opinion). This options box cannot be closed while typing in the text box. I have attached a screenshot of what I mean. At the very least this options box needs to be moved or able to be closed while still editing the text…

              • 3D PDF on iPad and iPhone

                I use 3D PDF to comunicate my ideas with the people I work with. Often they check their mail on iPhone or iPad, but they can’t see the 3D content of the PFD-files I created.

                I know that we could save alot of time if the 3D content of PDF’s were more videly avalible.

                • Free hand pen marking ??

                  Why there is no button for "free hand pen marking" !!

                  • All replies should be not be hidden be default.

                    Comment rplies are hidden by default and can not be changed. So when you hover over it or double click the comment. You do not see the reply. And so can get missed.

                    All replies should be not be hidden be default.

                      • Make it possible to copy highlighted text

                        It should be possible to copy the text easily from a highlight. Right now, this is almost impossible. (One had to switch to the Edit tool). Why not create a Copy Highlight item in the context menu. Or, when one clicks on and selects a highlight, why not simply let CMD-C do the job?

                        • Make it possible to toggle Highlight or Comment icons from on to off

                          When one clicks the highlight icon or comment icon (accidentally or on purpose) one is committed to doing more highlighting or commenting. The best one can do right now is click some other icon. One wants to go back to just selecting text. (The same should hold for other icons.)

                                  As shown on the attached screenshot, the mouse wheel does not work here. It would be nice to have this function available for scrolling up or down a long list of comments.

                                    • 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!

                                        • 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.
