  1. Moving sticky notes between far off pages in PDF

    Please introdue a feature where sticky notes can be moved between far off pages within and also if possible between PDFs.

    This should be done so that files having lots of sticky notes in them can be smoothly worked with. I have a file with 3000+ sticky notes in it but the notes are all in different pages and I want to streamline it.

    Copy pasting content individually one sticky note at a time is tedious and so would request Adobe to allow a feature where one can simply drag the sticky notes across the pages.

    One solution is by…

  2. checkmarks need to be not user-specific (or set status should be more easily accessible)

    (checked) checkmarks should be visible for others that open the file > that way you can share which comments are done and which are not.
    Orrr make the status more accessible so you don't have to right click / drop down to check it. If you have over 100 comment to check it is too tedious a job :)

  3. I absolutely HATE the DC Pro interface; it's about as unfriendly to standard business users who use it for document review as it can get!

    This is an impossible interface. Go back to the drawing board and look to the layouts before you 'streamlined for mobile devices' which is not how most of use use Acrobat Pro for routing documents in review.

  4. RE-apply comment filters

    I realized today than in acrobat, there is no re-apply or update for the filter on the comments section. I do book editing and things and spend quite a bit of time unsetting and reseting the filter since I get sent 500-1200 edits per document I receive. I would expect to press filer and then to have the option to 'reapply' or 'update' the filter since it isn't a live filter -- which would also be awesome but either would solve the issue I run into.

  5. password encription

    In one of the last updates, the password security has changed from allowing one to copy and paste the password into the dialogue box to requiring a manual typing of the password. When putting the password into a document for the client to open, there is always a chance to type the incorrect password and the document cannot be opened. When the document cannot be opened, I do not know what has changed from the proposed password. Having a copy and paste assures that the password in the document sent to the client is also the one securing the attached…

  6. Comments

    The ability to view a summary of all comments while working in Adobe Document cloud. Also the ability/option to hide "resolved" comments. We can mark comments as resolved, but they stay in the list, making things very cluttered. If I could turn on an option that would automatically hide (but not delete) comments once I've marked them as resolved, that would help tremendously as we go through proofreading comments.

  10. 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

  12. Right Click make current properties default, not permanent

    Used to be when a text box was selected and the right click option "make current properties default" was chosen, that set the properties to all new text boxes permanently. Now I can chose this option, then change the text in a different text box and then next new text box that is created no longer has the default settings, it has the properties of the text box that was changed. Why have this option if it doesn't do what it says? This used to work in versions prior to Acrobat Pro DC 2019.012.20035. My idea, make it work like…

  13. Change name of “Transparent” checkbox to “No Fill”

    The name of the checkbox is confusing. “Transparent”, in the design field, means something totally different that what it does in Acrobat. Transparency can have degrees, and not so with a checkbox. The industry standard term that should be used is “No Fill”.

    I wrote further explanation about why this is so confusing. http://documentgeek.blogspot.com/2019/09/acrobat-dc-how-to-have-drawing-markup.html

    Users are clamoring for the ability to have No Fill, and they don’t know that it already exists because the naming is inconsistent and the feature is only implemented in 2 of the 4 different dialog boxes that are available to choose colors.

    Attached are each…

  14. Ability to have text boxes and callouts with choice of 2 default styles of properties

    I would like to have Style 1 and Style 2 as choices for text boxes and callouts AND be able to have them as part of my quick tools. (For example, I want my comments that will cause changes to be in one color and my comments--which won't cause changes--be in another color.) Right now, I have one format (eg, red box with yellow fill) for changes. But I would like to be able to have another choice (eg, green box with blue fill) for comments that won't involve changes to the document.

  15. Formatting-independent pasting into sticky notes

    I often look up word translations and paste them into sticky notes beside the text. It would be great if there was a short-cut (Cmd+Alt+Shift+V) like there is in Pages to paste content right into the standard formatting of sticky notes. Otherwise, the text pasted from a webpage will often be too large or will contain distracting hyperlinks (see attached). Thanks!

  16. Add checkmark to multiple filtered Comments without also checking all the (unfiltered) comments in-between

    When multiple comments contain the same text we can search for them and view them all, without seeing all other comments. However, if we then add a checkmark to all of these comments (by first selecting all of them and then clicking one of their checkmarks) all of the [hidden] comments (ones which didn't match the search) that appear on pages in-between are also given a checkmark. This is obvious if we have the 'Unchecked' filter selected, as when clearing the search many more comments have vanished, not just the ones which matched the search. Please fix it so that…

  17. Adding a detail view

    It would be nice to add a "Detail Magnifying Glass" which will take a screen-shot of the selected part of the document and place it with the desired magnification level on the document for commenting or plain detailing just like engineering drafting applications.

  18. Strip ALL formatting information from text pasted into a comment

    When pasting text copied from a FrameMaker document into an Acrobat comment, ALL the system fonts are listed in the comment.

    Current workaround is to paste the copied text into a text editor and then recopy the information from the text editor.

  20. Highlighting

    Hello. I regularly use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for reading PDFs for school. With some kinds, I can just highlight the text normally, and that works great. Congratulations and great job! However, sometimes my professors simply photocopy pages from a book, and I have to draw on highlights. Does that make sense? Now, here's the issue. Sometimes, when I draw it in a straight enough line, it automatically makes it straight. That's nice, HOWEVER, sometimes it doesn't follow the line of the text and doesn't match up with the way the text is on the page. I've attached a sample…
