  1. Bug: The last one of the Korean charaters is relocated at the end of the string when inserted in the middle of strings

    There's no problem when words are typed in serial order.

    However if you insert some Korean characters in the middle of any strings and 'enter the SPACE key', the last one of the charaters is entered forcefully at the end of the strings.

    It is impossble to add or insert some Korean words in the middle of the strings in comments. So we have to use ctrl+C and ctrl+V. it's really uncomfortable. Please fix it. All the versions of acrobat including the latest version have the same bug.

  2. Acrobat Comments is now a mess

    There used to be lines in between each comment that help you see where one comment ended and the next one started. The new comments panel design is a mess that makes it hard to distinguish which comment is checked and which is not everything just flows together in one long indistinguishable mess. And for God’s sake bring back the old method of checking off a comment.

  3. Apple & Adobe, quit foisting your problems onto your custormers!!!!!

    Here's a unique idea. Software idiots at Apple start talking to the software idiots at Adobe! Work out your problems on the company level before forcing your bad programming on your customers in the form of buggy forced upgradates!!!!!! My computer used to work wonderfully, now it's just a ********** brick because of forced updates!!

  4. BUG: Dark Mode copy and pastes invisible text

    When copying text from a dark mode app on Mac (Mail app) and pasting it into the comment box in Acrobat the the formatting stays which creates white text on a white comment box, ie invisible. The workaround is to highlight the text, right click, and "clear formatting". This adds lots of time as we do this frequently. See screenshots for a better explanation. Thanks!

  5. Disable popup when selecting text

    Would you disable, or at least provide an option to disable, a popup when highlighting a text? This is very annoying because this occludes text I am currently reviewing. Please do not interfere with the user's intended task. It is up to the users who will decide what to do with the highlighted text - after reviewing it thoroughly. Blocking it with the pop up interferes the work process.

  6. change highlight color

    Add the ability to change the pre-defined colors for the highlight tool. Having to highlight first, than go and change the properties of the highlighted text just to replace Adobes forced colors wastes a lot of time

  7. Changes compared between 2 PDFs are not accurate

    When comparing 2 versions of a PDF, some of the items the program highlights come up as changes where there isn't any. For example, in one section, a piece of text had been moved a few millimeters, and yet the program registered it as a completely new piece of text, which is false.

    What are the rules on how Acrobat identifies changes between 2 PDFs? And can this be altered by Adobe and/or the user?

  8. Font default setting ineffective for add text comment

    A couple weeks ago I set my font in preferences/content editing/font options as 10 point Cambria. Every day the first time I type comments on a PDF the font that starts off is 12 point Helvetica. As far as I can tell Acrobat Standard DC makes no use of the information a user puts into preferences/content editing/font options.I don't care that much about whether I am typing in Helvetica versus Cambria but I correct the Acrobat font from 12 point to 10 point every workday. There are some features of your new Acrobat that I like better than the old…

  9. Make Comments Toolbar Open Automatically/By Default

    I would LOVE it if you folks could make the Comments Tool auto-open and/or by default somehow. I open lots and lots of pages every day and it would be really wonderful if the Comments just opened every time I opened a new doc.

  10. Include highlight color in contextual menu

    Graduate students, researchers and practitioners are required to stay up-to-date in their area of expertise. This means they regularly read academic papers, white papers, e-books, reports, and other documents that come as PDF.

    Having a quick way to switch between colors when highlighting and commenting text (i.e., without relying on the "Comment" menu on the top of the screen) would allow more effective reading.

    This could be easily implemented by including a "color" command in the contextual menu that pops up when hovering the mouse on the top of highlighted text (right now it shows "Add comment" and "delete" only).

  11. Remove icons on comments

    When I place a comment, a trash can icon or sticky note icon appears, but those icons only get in the way of the content I'm trying to comment on. It would be great to be able to disable that feature.

  12. Acrobat DC Highlight text not working

    I used to choose highlighter tool and highlight sentences. Now a vertical line appears and highlights a diamond.

    This needs to be corrected! Complete BS that this does not work.

    If this is done purposely than it illustrates how the human mind of younger people working in tech has lost touch with all reality.

    Once again great software deteriorating and making getting work more troublesome and costing people jobs.

    Hail climate change and more C02!

  13. restore

    I frequently add comments to drawing files created in Adobe format. It works great if a person can remember to save the file every time changes are made. If he can't because the user gets side tracked and opens another file and experiences a adobe crash everything is lost. When users start editing an adobe file, it should work just like Word where it auto saves every so often so that if a crash occurs, all the comments are restored also and not just the original file.

  14. Printing with comments doesn't work as expected

    After sending a document for review, I tried to print the document with the comments showing, it will only show the comments on a separate page. There should be a way to print the document with the comments on the same page AND in the spot, or linked to the spot where the comments were made. Example - how the page is shown in Acrobat with the comments to the right and the spot where the comment was made visible so we can tell where it is referencing.

  15. Allow favourite stamps palette be visible

    Can you select Stamps, particularly favourites to be all always visible as opposed to having to open two menus to select a new one. Previous versions had this functionality, not sure if it's gone or hard to find now.

  16. Feature request: ctrl+click to select multiple noncontiguous comments

    I need to be able to manipulate multiple non-adjacent comments. Example: select many comments and unlock all, or mark all with checkmark. Just as shift+click will select all comments between the first and last click, ctrl+click should select one and another without affecting those in between.

  17. Stop comment posts from going to side of document

    The new option for putting comment to the side of the document is causing more problems. I have many many comments, often in horizontal documents, to edit for indesign files. Have to make the window so large to see comments it's difficult to go back and forth. Please make an option to open comments inside the document page as before. Thank you.

  18. Comments have very tiny text when selected

    Have to copy text from Acrobat pdf comments constantly. It is impossible to read when the comment box is open (clicked to copy text). Why does it have to change size from the open comment column when clicked? Please fix this, makes jobs take twice as long as they need to.

  19. Change colors in Compare Mode

    In previous versions of Acrobat (CC2015 era) you could adjust the Color Legend when running the Compare tool.

    This feature is now missing from current iterations of Acrobat.

  20. stamps custom calculation

    Hello,

    I tried to add a custom calculation script to my stamps (via form editing), but it always fails. (Also in Acrobat 11.0.23)

    This is a serious bug!

    Please have a look to the videos. (DC Version is 19.010.20098)

    I could do it in Acrobat 10.1.16

    When there's already some script in there, DC is able to edit it.
