  1. Keep Tool Selected - we need it back please

    There used to be a great feature where you could click a box to "keep tool selected" so you keep using the same tool, over and over again without clicking on the Icon again and again and again. It was especially useful when reviewing a large document where you wanted to highlight several passages or for adding text, etc.

  3. Add option to Expand/collapse at the comment level

    Acrobat (years ago) had this ability, I believe.

    Currently, we can expand/collapse all comments.
    We can also expand/collapse comments for an entire page.

    Please add an option at the comment level that would expand/collapse the replies to a specific comment.

    When a page has 30 markups, and each markup has 5 replies (yes, this has happened :-)), there are now 150 comments showing in the comment list for just that single page.

    Being able to collapse a comment thread would be a massive improvement in usability of the commenting feature, I believe.

  4. Bug Report: Selection boxes disappear when dragging multiple annotations

    Summary:
    Selection boxes disappear when one of the selected annotations is a line--Upon moving the multiple selection with a cursor, any annotation selected before the last line annotation was selected will not have a blue selection box. This creates a very confusing user experience because it looks like you're only moving the line annotation.

    Steps to reproduce issue:
    - Select multiple annotations
    - Include a line annotation in the multiple selection
    - Click and drag the selection

    Expected result:
    - All selected annotations should have a blue selection box representing the move

    Observed result:
    - Only the last selected line…

  5. Crash when commenting on PDF portfolio file


    1. Create a PDF portfolio from any two PDF files

    2. Right click on one of the files on the left and choose Open File

    3. Go to the Comment tool

    4. Click Add Text Comment from the toolbar (the single line one)

    5. Type in a comment anywhere

    6. Click X to close the tab while the caret is still blinking

    Expected:
    Asks you to save like it does with a non-portfolio PDF file.

    Actual:
    Freezes and then crashes. Reproducible every time, occurs on multiple Windows accounts.

    After typing, if you press Esc or do anything else to move focus off the comment, the comment…

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Make Changing of Comment Type Possible

    Since InDesign CC2019 has the ability to import PDF comments for quicker apply of text corrections, it would be of enormous help, to be able to change the comment type in Acrobat.

    Some proof readers e.g. use the markup comment type to change text. But InDesign doesn’t allow the markup comment type to be executed with a simple klick on »Apply«.
    Or they use »delete text« comment type, althought they wanted to change text. But in InDesign »delete text« simply deletes, but doesn’t insert the comment’s text.

    So if I’d be able to change the type of a comment easily,…

  10. 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.

  11. Spell check as you type

    I'd like to have spell check AS I TYPE while writing post-it note comments in Acrobat. Every other form field in the world checks spelling as you type...but not Acrobat. Why? This is a ridiculous product limitation!

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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).

  19. English (UK) Language needed

    Adobe acrobat needs British English (as opposed to American English)

    I am sick of seeing the red line for the following obvious reasons
    behavIOUR
    colOUR
    SummarISE
    etc

    American English is not the standard, its a variation on the theme.
    Please add British English to the program

  20. 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…
