  1. Make commenting fonts lockable

    Please make commenting fonts lockable so that when you share a PDF, someone else can see your comments in a specific font. The default font (Segoe) is not great for in-depth text editing, as some characters, like curly quote marks and apostrophes, are not as easily distinguishable from their straight counterparts as they would be in serif fonts.

  2. Highlight styles for printing B/W, such as outlining or circling words

    This would be great for making visual annotations that can be easily printed and used elsewhere, without requiring a color printer. When I make annotations in a book or text on paper, I use circling and underlining, and it would be awesome to do this in Acrobat as well!

  3. Combine four separate actions - copy, highlight, open pop-up note, paste copied text into note - into one keystroke action.

    Combine four separate actions - copy, highlight, open pop-up note, paste copied text into note - into one keystroke action. Or alter the 'Add Note to Text' option to include the selected text within the note as opposed to it just being a highlight. This way the highlighted portion will be included in comments summary reports.

  4. Shortcut for 'Add Note to Text'

    A shortcut – ideally a keyboard shortcut – for 'Add Note to Text' would be very helpful for the editors and proofreaders among us. To select the text, right-click and find 'Add Note to Text' is cumbersome when you're using that particular feature more than any other (the Sticky Note is much maligned by designers and reviewers alike for not being specific enough to the text to which it relates).

    It would also make lots more sense in the context of the comment-as-you-type functionality for inserting or deleting text, etc. Surely it would be logical to create an equivalent keyboard-centred…

  6. Sticky selections in the Create Comment Summary window

    Please allow user selections in the Create Comment Summary window to be sticky so the chosen options don't have to reset them each time the window is opened.

  7. Flexible highlighting

    1) When multiple overlapping or adjacent regions are highlighted the result should just be a single highlight over the union. This is how highlighting works in e.g. Kindle and Apple Books. A common workflow is to highlight an area, and then realize you made a mistake and wanted to highlight adjacent words. Right now this gives two overlapping highlighted regions with a darker shade on the overlap -- which is distracting, and it's highly unlikely that the user cared to generate two overlapping regions (and pretty unlikely the the user cared to create two adjacent but distinct regions).

    2) I'd…

  8. If a document has been commented on and is closed, why is there no prompt "do you want to save"?

    If a document has highlights, comments and notes to replace text it is clear the document needs to be saved in order to retain those comments. Why then, if you accidentally close this document is there no prompt "do you want to save your changes"? As soon as a document has been commented on/changed, there should be a prompt like this. If there has been no change, no prompt is needed.

  9. floating comment toolbar

    Hello,
    Concerning the floating black tool bar that shows up when text is selected, it currently has only 5 functions (Highlight, Underline, Strike through, Copy & Edit text-images).
    My requests:
    1. Kindly make it customizable, so that users can add whatever buttons they like.
    2. Especially, make it such that users can add anything from 3-5 highlighters of different colors, so that I will not have to go through the tedious task of changing the color of the highlighter each time I want it changed.
    3. Kindly allow the "Add note to text" icon there either by default or as…

  10. Selection Tool

    Apparently the new interface does not allow you to select, and keep selected, text comments. ALso, you can no longer make window selections to select multiple text comments at one time. Also, you cannot keep text selected, or have the option to double click to edit text. This new interface has tripled the time it takes for me to comment on documents. Please give US the option of how we want to handle selections!

  11. Add the highlight search tool

    -It would be really great if you added a tool or section in the program to show a list of all highlighted areas with the ability to search and select between them.
    And also another section to do these for comments.
    -The highlight tool can work in bookmark panel.

  12. A comment report to rule them all

    I work in several files which all get marked up in a standard format (red boxes with an red x stamp to note issues that need further review or actions to resolve). All the mark ups from all the documents need to be closed before my process is complete. It would be ideal if i could run a query across multiple documents (like a whole batch of folders) on all the comments made with the same criteria options currently available in a single .pdf comment filter and it be packaged in a comment summary file that has links to jump…

  13. Comments grouping

    At the beginning I like that the comment bar shows every comment on a page as an individual element, which I find to be very useful for long, distinctive comments. However it gets less handy when it comes to minor comments, such as highlighting important words on a page. Each word highlighted, or to say, each mark you’ve made on that page will be shown as an individual comment under the comment section of the page, making the comment list unnecessarily long. I think it would be nice to be able to group or merge some comments together.

  15. Make selected comment bubble obvious

    I ask my clients to provide edits via PDF comments. Even as a person with normal vision, it is hard to tell which comment bubble is presently active (e.g. via clicking on a comment in the side panel). On images or busy pages it can become like an advent calendar search. The contrast of the bubble background and its dotted border are inadequate (even with opacity set to 100). Contrast between inactive and active (selected) comment bubble needs to be vastly improved, perhaps by size and not just colour.

    I would use the PDF comments import in InDesign instead but…

  16. Allow repositioning of comments sidebar for use on multiscreen setup

    Allow custom position and size for comments bar to allow multiscreen editing (InDesign on one screen with comments, Acrobat document on other screen).

  17. Commenting using dual high- and low-res monitors

    Opening multiple Acrobat windows on separate displays causes problems with the resolution calculation in the comments panel, if the screen scaling is different for the two screens.

    I'm using the latest release version of Windows 10 Professional, and one panel is 3840 x 2160 at 150% scaling, and the other is 1920 x 1080 at 100% scaling. Acrobat is Acrobat Pro DC 2020.006.20042.

    Ordinarily Acrobat rescales correctly as you move windows between screens, but the comments panel seems to have an application-wide display scaling (unlike the rest of the UI) and whichever screen you use most recently ALSO changes the…

  18. Commentless Highlighting

    Include a highlighting tool that doesn't show up as a comment. We use the highlighter to indicate values that have been reviewed, but it makes the comment summary and the comment window very cluttered. It would be nice if we could either exclude highlighting from the comment window or generated comment summary or have a separate tool.

  19. Stamp Related - Shortcut

    Add in Stamp (of an actual stamp that been created) shortcut to the tool bar where you can set its default properties (Size etc opacity) for when that instance has been added to a page, and then what happens next ie is it pinned or does it revert. This gives flexibility for handling large number of document or just a small amount. Being able to save a couple of clicks everytime would be a big help and something I think would improve a lot of peoples work flows. Thank you. Gabi

  20. Keyboard Shorcuts for Set Status

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to set keyboard shortcuts for the "Set Status: None, Accepted, Completed, Cancelled, and Rejected" commenting tools.

    Set status, to me is an advanced feature used to enable more efficient workflows, adding keyboard shortcuts would add even more efficiency.
