  1. ink color

    As an instructor who grades students electonic work in Acrobat on an iPad with Apple Pencil, I would LOVE to have some more ink colors, particularly silly or sparkly inks (rainbow sparkles! gold and silver sparkles!). Microsoft Word has this option on iPads/tablets for Apple Pencil or whatever stylus is used, but Acrobat does not. Is there a way to make this happen?

    I know this is kind of silly compared to other requests you get, but it is a small thing that makes a big difference for students who dread the red pen but for some reason don't dread…

  2. Allow distributed form to not auto open comment list

    There should be a setting when creating a form in Acrobat Pro such that when a user opens it in Acrobat Reader and they click on the comment icon, that the comment list pane on the right side of the document does not automatically open up. This is confusing for some users. They should be able to open it up manually, but it should be possible to set it to not auto-open that pane.

  3. Please add Insert text at cursor tool to cloud commenting

    Cloud commenting from Acrobat and InDesign is an amazing idea but it feels hobbled without the insert text at cursor tool, particularly for reviewing text heavy documents. Please consider expanding the commenting functions available to cloud reviewers.

  4. auto save or ask to save on file close. USELESS TOOL! SO ARCHAIC!

    2 HOURS OF COMMENTS ON PDF - MOVED TO DIFFERENT APP, CAME BACK TO ACROBAT ONLY TO FIND MY PAGE WAS CLOSED AND ALL MY COMMENTS WERE LOST. YOUR TOOL HAS NO FUNCTION TO RECOVER WHAT I WAS DOING. WHAT A CROCK OF ****. ARE YOU FOR REAL??? WHY NO PROMPT TO SAVE ON CLOSURE LIKE EVERY OTHER PROFESSIONAL APP?

  5. Allow grouping/ungrouping of drawing tool markups (pencil marks)

    Acrobat automatically groups drawing tool (pencil) marks together, which is sometimes desirable and sometimes not. Why is there no option to right-click and group/ungroup pencil marks like there is for arrows, lines, and shapes? If I want to add a separate comment for each pencil mark, I undo the latest mark(s) and try to "trick" Acrobat by highlighting something or adding a shape, comment, etc. and then adding the second pencil mark. Sometimes this works and sometimes I have to do this multiple times. Then I go back and delete the unwanted highlight/shape/comment. If I create another pencil mark later,…

  6. copy text from PDF including changes (e.g. made with "strikethrough" or "insert" tools)

    In the commenting mode for Acrobat DC Pro, there are "strikethrough", "replace", and "insert text" tools, among others.

    When I select and copy some text (for example, to count the words or rephrase it in another window), it copies the original text and disregards anything crossed out or inserted. This means I have to re-do all the changes by hand.

    It would be great if one could copy the text in a way that incorporates the changes, similar to how you can opt to copy text with or without formatting, in some programs.

  7. Highlighter Tool color option Pop-up

    A feature that allows users to long click/press the highlight/underline/strikethrough tool upon selecting text.
    Upon long clicking/pressing it, it should show around 5 different color options (user's top/most recent) to highlight the selected text.

    This would help users avoid navigating to the toolbar every single time just to change the highlight color.

  8. Better support for keyboard shortcuts to markup documents

    I have been using Adobe products for Graphic Design and Publishing work for many years, and for most of it my co-workers and I have stuck to paper printouts and pencils for markup. Now that we're all working from home, we're relying on Acrobat and PDF markup tools and I'm so frustrated by how unintuitive this program is, compared with InDesign, which I use on a daily basis. I am used to switching from one tool to another with keystrokes that are deep in muscle memory, and I can use them in one way or another when I open Photoshop.…

  9. ungroup highlighted text

    Individual, multiple text highlights are created one after another and some can become automatically grouped, making it impossible to go back and delete just one of the highlights. Please offer the option to ungroup the highlights.

  10. Allow us to group shapes to move together.

    I would love to be able to create several shapes together so that I could move them together and resize all the shapes in the group at the same time. I do this in Word 2016 and would be awesome to do it in Acrobat Pro DC. I also can not believe that there aren't much more shapes to choose from like in the Word 2016 shape palette. Like a star, or "{ }", see attached file.

  12. Add emojis/icons to the comments section

    Reviewers on separate forms, comments can:
    go to ... > Set Status > then select Accepted, Cancelled, Completed, Rejected.
    Reviewers in share mode are even more limited:
    ... > Resolve
    These are inconvenient paths to say you agree with something, also all these words imply finality rather then collaborative thinking.
    Option 2: Reply by writing out the words.
    When going over a 100+ page document with as many comments writing a full reply is time consuming.

    Adding a thumbs up emoji/icon or even give a stamp option inside of the reply that says agree (regardless of the review type) would…

  13. Put comment filtering back to continuous

    It used to be that the comment filter would continuously update. You ruined that feature two years ago. I am waiting for you to put it back. Dealing with hundreds of comments is now clunky and painful.

  14. Keyboard shortcut to change the status to complete for review

    Would be very helpful instead of clicking through a hundret sub-menus, which is very time consuming if you have a lots of changes to do.

  15. Autosave failed and more

    Hi, I copy paste here a conversation I had yesterday with one of your help service agent (chat). It makes it quicker than re-writing everything. In summary, the automatic file saving failed on me. Indeed, when Adobe Acrobat DC software crashed, I had to close it and when reopening it, it said unable to reopen 3 of the files. I was not too worried since I had saved the most important doc under a new name one hour or so before and would have to redo just a few revision comments. But to my surprise, when I opened it, although…

  16. Animation in Adobe Acrobat and Indesign without flash

    Adobe acrobat and indesign, without flash player, are not so powerful and as attractive as before. Everything looks so plain and regular, animation and rich media oftentimes aren't working properly or worked at all. It's the opposite of progress.

  17. Why would you set 'done' button to mean close the document?

    I was done with the comments window, not with the document! Please change this to close or preferably let us close the way we always have.

  19. There is no way to just print the comments in my PDF document. I cannot print underlined or highlighted comments.

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. There is no way to print just the comments in my PDF. If I highlight or underline something in my PDF, I cannot print just the comments. I can extract pages containing the comments, but they are not in a properly formatted form. Can you fix this issue ASAP?

  20. Ability to have a pen or circle annotation tool locked open for a user to mark something in an Acrobat file.

    I have a PDF with the image of the human body that I would like tossed to my clients that they can circle with the oval or draw annotation tool to indicate where on their body they are experiencing pain. They should not have to know how to open the commenting tool and find the oval or drawing function. I want it to be in place ready for them to use.
