  1. Copying from PDFs in Acrobat DC occasionally crashes InDesign

    This doesn't happen all the time but it's enough to be annoying and it doesn't just happen on one of our Macs in the studio. When copying out of either comments or text in the PDF itself, InDesign which has a document we want to copy into open, crashes. It's not the active application, Acrobat is but once CMD + C is pressed to copy from Acrobat, that's the moment that InDesign crashes.

    Anyone else had this issue?

  2. Highlighting

    It would be great to have multiple colors or options so you can highlight different topics and organize your note making.

  3. Preference for "Create Comment Summary..."

    I have to use the Comment Summary really often and we don't have "US Letter". Every single time I have to change "US Letter" to "A4". It would be great if I could save the setting. Now I use "Action Wizard" for this...

  4. Bug Report

    I have a comment box pop up when mousing over a page with multiple images. The Comment box was not put in by the current author and we can't seem to find a way to edit or erase the comment box. Any advice would be welcome.

  6. BUG: All highlighted items in all pdfs converted to comments in latest update release

    After the latest update all the highlighted items (in yellow) were converted to comments. How do I get my highlights back?

    Second bug: Your website does not have your business address or proper business contact details. Please update this information so that it is available to the public.

  7. Working with sticky notes

    My problem is that when I try to print comment sticky notes on a parallel page, after the first day's work, when I start up the next day, I can edit with sticky notes, but cannot make them open on the parallel page. The first day's sticky notes are there nicely, but the second day's will not open on the parallel page once entered on the main text page.

  9. Change Highlight color with control click on mac

    It would be great if you could control click the Highlight tool to change the highlighter color and/or highlighted text. I like to use that function to tag different elements in documents and it seems very cumbersome to change colors of the highlight tool so I don't really use it much or I just use one color because you have to go to the color picker (which also disappears if you shrink the window, which I do because I have other non-adobe documents open that I am referencing.)

    Thanks for listening!

  10. Can we have the old one back. This is too cumbersome.

    So hard to use and wastes so much of my time looking for things.
    I just need the preview/navigator on the side so I can rotate or crop and a highlighter in the tools and the hand to move the page around. Every time I open a file it defaults back to nothing I can use. Please bring back version 10

  11. comment box in the way

    When typing in a text box ( and im sure others) the various font options popup gets in the way of what I am trying to type. The most frequent place I use text boxes is the top right of a page, which is completely unusable in the updated version of Adobe (which generally sucks in my opinion). This options box cannot be closed while typing in the text box. I have attached a screenshot of what I mean. At the very least this options box needs to be moved or able to be closed while still editing the text…

  12. Free hand pen marking ??

  13. All replies should be not be hidden be default.

    Comment rplies are hidden by default and can not be changed. So when you hover over it or double click the comment. You do not see the reply. And so can get missed.

    All replies should be not be hidden be default.

  14. Make it possible to copy highlighted text

    It should be possible to copy the text easily from a highlight. Right now, this is almost impossible. (One had to switch to the Edit tool). Why not create a Copy Highlight item in the context menu. Or, when one clicks on and selects a highlight, why not simply let CMD-C do the job?

  15. Make it possible to toggle Highlight or Comment icons from on to off

    When one clicks the highlight icon or comment icon (accidentally or on purpose) one is committed to doing more highlighting or commenting. The best one can do right now is click some other icon. One wants to go back to just selecting text. (The same should hold for other icons.)

  19. Compare Documents function not catching noticeable document changes

    Bug report: Acrobat Pro Compare documents is missing noticeable changes from the old document to new document using the "Reports, spreadsheets, magazine layouts" option.

    Can be reproduced by using the Compare Documents feature and comparing an older document to a newer document.

    Version: 2015 Release (Classic) 2015.006.30355
    OS: Windows 10, Windows 7, Server 2012R2

    Expected Result: Compare documents feature should catch noticeable changes in the document from the old document to new document.

    I attached a screenshot of an area missed by the compare feature (highlighted in red circle), if needed I can provide the 2 documents used to compare.…
