  2. Undo action

    Ctrl+ z action does "Undo" of last activity in adobe writer. However, cursor or screen display does not move to specific location in file where undo has happened. Some time in hurry, we dont even come to know that we have undone some work. Hence, i suggest, undo should take cursor and screen to concerned page similar to excel, word etc.

    Kindly check if it is worth enough to consider.

  3. An Urgent Need for Better and Bolder Annotation Tools

    I respectfully suggest you consider enhancing Acrobat DC’s current annotation and highlighting tools to enable users to markup documents directly and instantly and do so without putting your users through Acrobat DC’s 28 tool / function menus.

    I have been using Acrobat extensively for over 20 years and have a continuous need to annotate a wide range of PDF documents – legal, financial and technical and more. My annotation needs are both textual and graphic. While I remain loyal to Adobe Acrobat, I find Acrobat DC’s current annotation and highlight tools visually weak, limited in graphic capabilities and VERY timer-consuming…

  5. Comments pane

    I wish to open the comments pane to open or hide with the click of a button - it is taking up too much room. And in contrast to older versions I can no longer copy any text from the post-it notes (which might be useful if a translator has given a text change that needs to be transferred to a language layout) but have to open the comments pane (with what seems a lengthy way round).

  7. The dynamic stamp creation process needs to be simpler

    The dynamic stamp creation process is very difficult, at best. The random names for the stamps makes it extremely difficult to find which stamp you're working on after the stamp has been named during creation. Having to navigate deep into the file system to find a randomly named file is not user friendly by any stretch of the imagination. I'm attempting to make 100 dynamic stamps for our engineering company, not just one or two stamps.

    Please see if you can make the dynamic stamp process easier

  9. Sticky Notes show a nonexistent user's name

    I can provide screenshots via email. Suddenly, although I've changed nothing, I add a sticky note and it has someone else's name who had never commented on a PDF ever, and is not associated with my account!

  10. Need to click two screens to close one document

    I use Acrobat Standard DC v.2015.006.30417
    Each time I close a document, I get another screen which I then need to click on to close my document. I've seen, online, comments regarding a box, in General Preferences, that can be checked to eliminate this feature, but my version does not have the box.
    What can I do to stop this very annoying activity?

  11. Acrobat crashes frequently when using highlighter on large scanned PDF

    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    Open a large scanned PDF, use the highlighter for several times until the bug happens, which when I'm moving the highlighter across scanned texts Acrobat stop responding, and sometimes there's a large transparent window found by Spy++ on top of other windows.

    Environment (OS, other related application versions, etc.)
    Windows 10 Version 1709 Build 16299.309

  12. Allow Properties Bar to modify Comment - Add Text objects

    Allow/Enable the Properties of an 'Add Text' Comment to include 'Appearance' modifiers. e.g., opacity. Similar in function to the 'Add Text Box' Comment objects.

  13. BUG: cannot open PDF

    Myself and a coworker cannot open a PDF with sharing/commenting capabilities. Acrobat DC Pro will open, but once I select a file, the program closes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program. The PDF will open in Preview.

  14. comment list

    When a select a comment (annotation) in a pdf's page, his correspondance in the comment list is highlight and show in the bottom of the list.
    Is there a way to change that (like all other Acrobat before!!). So when you select the comment his correspondance is show first in the comment list?
    I don't know why that change in Acrobat DC, but it it makes my job really complicated....

    Lorsque je sélecte un commentaire ou annotation dans une page d'une pdf, sa correspondance dans la liste de commentaires devient en couleur et se place en bas de la liste…

  15. Comment popup text very difficult to Select and Copy to clipboard

    Open an existing comment bubble popup that has text in it. Select (highlight) the text. Now just move the mouse cursor slightly outside of the comment popup boundary. The text you highlighted becomes unhighlighted! I can’t even express how maddeningly frustrating this is. We have hundreds of edits a day that we need to copy the comment text out of Acrobat.

    We are CONSTANTLY selecting the text, hitting COMMAND+C, switching over to a different program to paste, only to realize that either nothing gets pasted in or the text from the previous edit is still on the clipboard. I finally…

  16. How can I look at previous versions of a PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?

    I am trying to move my colleagues away from .docx to .pdf. Unfortunately we often have to review older version of a file that has been modified. How can we do this in DC? Can we?

  17. Comment Arrow

    The arrow in the comment section will not change color... It seems to be locked, but when i click on Properties the Locked box is uncheck. The only way to change the color is to make it a default, every time.

  18. Customize Comment Pane

    The comments pane takes up WAY too much space. I would like the ability to customize what I see there.

    Currently in the Comments pane, it display the:

    -Author Name
    -Type of Comment
    -Text within the pop-up note
    -Date and Time

    Sometimes all of this information is useful, but most of the time, I don't need to see all that! It is a waste of screen space. I would like the ability to show to only those options which I need. In this case, I just want to see what is in the pop-up note, nothing more.

    We can customize…

  20. Freehand Highlighter

    I recently discovered the new feature in Acrobat Pro DC that allows me to use the highlight tool to highlight "text" in a scanned pdf that has not been ocr'd. I tried to use it today but it would not work. Was the awesome feature removed? If so it should be brought back!
