  1. 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.

        • Add or Remove Handles in Draw Cloud Tool

          Occasionally when using the Draw Cloud tool (under Drawing Markups) I find the need to delete a superfluous handle, or add a handle. I would like to do this without the need of deleting the existing cloud drawing and starting over again.

          For example, let's say I selected the tool and began plotting points. These drawings are often polygons with many segments, taking a bit of time and care to construct. As the tool connects the points it leaves a handle to mark the last point, until I complete the drawing by clicking the beginning handle.

          Sometimes I fumble-figure the…

          • Smooth Inking Support on Windows Tablet PC

            It would be nice if the pen/pencil tool in the comment tool set didn't auto-smooth a fraction of a second after the pen stroke. I fill out some PDF forms on a regular basis which are then emailed. I love maintaining a paperless workflow but a lot of my writing is in small-ish print (approx 10-12pt) at moderately high zoom levels and I find at that scale that if I'm not very careful about stroke speed and technique, the smoothing feature modifies character shapes in bizarre ways. Periods (".") and the dots on i's and j's don't take unless I…

              • Auto refresh the sort by list when one of the properties changes

                If I am sorting comments, the group of comments should auto-refresh. If I have 4 unchecked comments and choose sort by checkmark status, all four show up in the top group "Unchecked". But if I then check one of the comments, the group doesn't auto refresh. The now checked comment is still in the Unchecked list. So I have to sort by another method, then sort again by my original method to get the groups to display correctly.

                • Make sort by groups collapsed as the default behavior

                  When I sort comments: by type, author, color, page, etc, the groups are always fully open. If I'm sorting by a particular group, I want to target something within a group. If I have a lot of comments, they scroll past the end of the comment pane. So EVERY TIME, I have to collapse the groups. At the very least, make the name of the groups BOLD somehow, so that I can see which group it is more easily. Also, I miss the little twirl down triangle, That UI was more intuitive. I don't like the ellipses.

                  • Customize view when open PDF

                    I would like to be able to customize what opens in DC like previous versions. For example, I almost always need the comments bar open when I open PDFs. It was save me time and clicks if I could set in Preferences or someplace to always open that bar when opening a PDF> I used to be able to do this i thought in previous versions. I hop eyou can add this tweak.

                    • [Bug] resize legends and annotation text box is very buggy

                      1. Add a legend text box on a static page (the red boxes you find in the comment section)
                      2. Try to resize the text box
                      3. You'll find that the icons are not accurate : they change very quickly from "resize cursor" to "move cursor" to the little arrow, and it is very difficult to resize or even move the box.

                      Environment : Mac OS 10.11.6 Acrobat 11.0.22

                      • Settings to allow any desired tool (or any combination) to be selected as default

                        It would be great if Adobe could keep/save my preferred settings as default rather than having to do it each time - even if it is only at a click of a mouse it counts in fast-paced working environments.

                        • BUG: DC PRO crash while highlighting and comments on scanned hand written notes document

                          Brand new Win 10 Surface Book with everything updated including Acrobat. When highlighting and adding comments to a scanned handwritten document, DC PRO crashed and hours of work were lost as the file I was working on was not in the temporary saved files. In troubleshooting, I found that auto-save to temporary files was not turned on in preferences. I am used to working with MS Word which automatically saves every document you have opened and changed and I assumed Adobe would do likewise. I have not had a crash like this on DC PRO like many others have reported…

                                In previous versions of Acrobat, it was a LOT easier to see which comment on a page was selected. There sue to be marching ants. Now, there is just a thin blue line that doesn't march. Please bring back the marching ants so it's easier to see what is selected. Our eyes aren't getting any younger!

                                • BUG: multiple actions assigned to keyboard shortcut ~

                                  Currently, typing ~ is assigned in Acrobat to BOTH "insert text at cursor" AND "output preview." It is completely unpredictable which action will result when I type ~.

                                  I need to be able to bring up the "insert text a cursor" function without having to mouse all over the place.

                                  Please fix this bug.

                                  • rounded highlight edges are problematic

                                    When highlighting, a recent update made it so that the edges of the highlight are rounded, rather than straight up and down. This is problematic when using highlighting to make comments for a compositor to do something with text in a proof, because it is not crystal clear which characters the highlight is actually applied to.

                                    For (just one) example, if I highlight a word within parentheses to mark for the compositor to make it italic, it looks like the parentheses are also highlighted when they are not.

                                    The attached screenshot with the blue selection shows what the selection looks…

                                    • Text formatting when copying between text boxes

                                      Please make an option to keep text formatting, like line feeds, when copying text between two text boxes in same PDF file. At the moment Acrobat DC removes all line feeds when content is copy&pasted which creates a lot of unnecessary "Enter" typing.
                                      Maybe something like CTRL+SHIFT+V = keep formatting?

                                      Copying the whole text box is not an options, because the text box is sometimes rotated when pasted to another page.

                                      Alternative to this request would of course be to make the text box rotatable.

                                        Estou para comprar o Adobe Acrobat Pro DC e experimentei a versão gratuira, mas para minha surpresa não tem como acessar o ENVIAR E RASTREAR. Na versão vendida tem esse dispositivo?

                                        • Bug Report: Comment Descenders Cut Off

                                          The bottom edge of the comment pop-up window is measured from the letter baseline rather than the bottom of the descenders. This cuts off typographical descenders and inhibits quick reading of comments.
