  1. show correct colours for CMYK annotations

    According to the PDF spec it's possible to create coloured annotations which are non-RGB. However, when you create i.e. a CMYK annotation, Acrobat takes the first three values and interprets them as RGB. I.e. [1 0 0 0] results in red instead of cyan, see attached example.
    Interestingly, Preflight validates the document so somewhere in the company the knowledge is available.
    The goal should be that annotations are displayed correctly independent of how many colour channels are there.

  2. Coloured background bookmarks

    The bookmark tool only allows you to change the colourt of the text and not the background colour.

    It would be useful to be able to have say yellow tabs with black text

    It would be useful to have simple coloured bookmarks which operate like coloured tabs in level arch files. These can mark out a particular top eg jet engine fan blade orders

    In addition these can be nested sorted/arranged if necessary with secondary labels/hidden text which appears when you hover over them.

  3. Checking comments by keyboard lags

    Acrobat 20.6.20034.366983 on Mac OSX 10.14.6

    Open a PDF with comments and select comment pane.

    Select a comment with the cursor.

    Press shift-K. The comment's checkbox should be checked.

    Instead, nothing happens.

    Press down arrow to move to next comment. The checkbox gets checked.

    The reverse also holds true--when using the keyboard to uncheck a comment, the checkmark doesn't get cleared until you navigate off the comment.

    In the video, the box is getting checked only when I hit the down arrow key and move to the next comment. You can also see the reverse, except one time (the comment…

  4. 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.

  5. Multiple Custom Tool Sets with Same Tools - Different Properties for Each Tool

    For work I use multiple tools to add comments to PDFs. I have created a custom tool set with the tools I need to use the most. We are required to use specific colors depending on what we are commenting on. It would make it so much easier if I could make custom sets (all with the tools I use) and have each one be different color schemes.

    A few examples of this are below:

    Custom Tool Set #1
    Highligher – Color/Green
    Text Box – Border/Red; Fill/Green; Text Color/Blue
    Arrow – Color/Green
    Rectangle – Color/Green

    Custom Tool Set #2
    Highligher…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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 ..

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. please improve the pen sensitivity

    i use the pen from the comment tools to write notes, but it is difficult to write with it because it is not smooth, making the writing process very slow

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  19. No Longer Able to Keep Tool Selected

    You are not able to keep a tool selected any longer. If you use it once, then it reverts back to the cursor. Stamps, highlighter, comments, all of them. This had been a feature in Acrobat since I can remember and all of a sudden they removed it. WHY? Bring it back. There are several other people on here complaining of the same thing but if they don't respond, they say the issue is resolved. It is not in any way "resolved". Please bring back asap.

  20. Working with sticky notes - date showing

    I would like to have the date show up in the sticky note.

    Currently, only the Author and time show up.

    Why not have all three? It would be very helpful, as I currently have to key in today's date every time I enter an order or if I reply to the sticky note.
