  1. change acrobat DC to DO. DESKTOP ONLY

    Buy a dictionary or, better yet, use your iPad to lookup the meaning of ANY. On your website it says DC pro WORKS ON ANY DEVICE.

    There are millions of these new things called tablets sold every year (for the last 10 years) Send someone from marketing back to elementary school to learn about ANY. When they get to law school, attend the class on false and misleading. REALLY disappointed with Adobe.

  2. Comment window stuck open

    It is possible to highlight text, but not enter anything in the comment box (no need to in my case). Eventually, the comment box locks in place and you can't close it.
    Workaround: save and close the document and re-open it.

  3. Keep comment date the original date when notes are added later, additional notes should not change original date comment was made

    When we add a COMMENT there is a DATE attached. If we go back to the comment and have to make follow up notes, the DATE changes. It should NOT change. We need to see ORIGINAL comment dates. We need the option to keep the ORIGINAL comment date and make follow up comments inside the original without changing the DATE

  4. I hope in the highlight comment, that the mouse pointer remains in a circular shape even above normal texts

    I hope in the highlight comment feature, that the mouse pointer remains in a circular shape even above normal texts .. This will give more freedom to select the desired text .. because some texts are thorny and difficult to define with the text cursor for the mouse ..

  5. Option to Hide Name of Comment Author and Date of Comment

    In a long document with multiple comments, the name of the comment author, and date of the comment, clutters up the actual comments and makes them difficult to read. It would be much cleaner if there were an option to hide the name of the comment author and date of the comment in the comments panel. Thank you

  6. the term search freezes and black rectangular blocks cover variable places on page +(not responding)

    This version is unusable due to unstable flickering, with slowed down response to page scrolling, freezing search, or black rectangular shapes covering the whole page or partially the content.
    At this level, there are no ideas to be suggested since the very basic functions are affected

  7. Right click on comment to resolve

    When right-clicking a comment in Acrobate DC, I get the option to delete it, but to mark it as 'resolved', I have to use the comment column. Deleting a comment is not preferred, because it leads to the reviewers thinking they have missed a spot, while a resolved comment still gets highlighted when they go the document. It would be much easier for all those quick fixes to be able to resolve them on the spot instead of having to look them up and resolve them in the comments pane.

  8. when the highlight tool is set to the first shade of gray, the fill color disappears from the toolbar-it is the same color as dark mode

    Fix this by adding an outline to the fill color so that it is still visible when the highlight color is gray

  9. Customize Comment Summary

    I'd like to see one be able to choose what comments are to be printed in a summary.
    For instance I do not need a report on every highlighting.
    Highlighting with comments, and comment bubbles themselves yes.

    I'd like to see a line to the reference number in the margin if one selected this time of summary. I do not like the characters covered by the numbers.

  10. Surface pen annotation on Acrobat is jagged and not smooth

    Other apps write very smoothly. Even the Apple Pencil on Acrobat on iPad isn't that bad, but the Surface pen on a desktop is so ugly that I can't share it with clients/customers. Please fix!

  12. Hide Tools Pane

    Provide ability to hide the Tools Pane to increase the field of content.
    I review and markup engineering drawings and other documents. Some of these are quite large. I need the maximum amount of content in the window. As long as I can access the comment menu in the tool bar above, I have what I need.

  13. Remove @ symbol from comments box

    Cannot find how to remove the @ symbol in the comments box. Do NOT want to "post" comment and is annoying when having to copy / paste info from the comments.

  14. COMMENTS: Changing text size & color works once then doesn't popup.

    Changing text size / color used to work fine until a forced update to Acrobat DC today to 19.021.20048.
    Now selecting a comment and changing text size or color seems to work the first time I try to use the feature after opening the document.
    After that I either don't get the popup to change text size / color; or if the popup shows and I click on the color box (change color) no additional popup for color change comes up.
    Using Windows 7 laptop.

  15. No longer able to change Font settings under Comments tool

    After the update, no longer able to change font settings of comments (ie font size, font color, etc.). After reaching out to help desk, it was indicated that this can only be done in the "Edit pdf" tool which only works once comments are embedded in the document. This does not make sense as I still need the comments to be "live" so that further edits can be made in the future. This is especially upsetting as I work on pdf's that are 24X36 and need the comments to stand out but the size is so small, it gets lost…

  16. save different pencils to menu bar so can rapidly change from one to another

    Have ability to save different pencils to menu bar (with different properties) so you can rapidly change from one to the other. Now you can only save one pencil and you need to manually adjust the properties each time you want to change it. (In Customize Comments Tools)

  17. OCR and comments

    When OCR occurs, any comments and arrows previously added turn sideways and move to random locations, which makes them useless.

  18. Translating Tool

    Hi to all

    A translating tool is definitely a must. At present I have to export to word, translate, copy, paste and edit. The same goes for high versions of correction tools.

  19. Live Text Wrap While Adjusting Size of Text Box

    When editing a text box the text does not provide a preview of what it will look like at a certain width with the text wrap. This is a feature Bluebeam has that makes it quick and easy to see how the text box will appear as you adjust the size, saving time.
