  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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 ..

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Acrobat Pro DC

    The Highlighter yellow is very faint since the last update. It comes full color when drawing but upon release of the mouse button it fades away.

  15. ctrl+f color

    The highlight color that is currently used makes it impossible to locate the highlighted search criteria. If the color and brightness of the highlight was able to be changed by the user, it would be able to better suit their needs.
    I have been able to do this in the past (I guess it was an older version). I don't know why that feature would be taken away. With the way it is now ctrl+f is useless.

  16. Remove @ symbol from comments box

    Cannot find how to remove the @ symbol in the comments box. Do NOT want to "post" comment and is annoying when having to copy / paste info from the comments.

  17. Selection Tool

    Apparently the new interface does not allow you to select, and keep selected, text comments. ALso, you can no longer make window selections to select multiple text comments at one time. Also, you cannot keep text selected, or have the option to double click to edit text. This new interface has tripled the time it takes for me to comment on documents. Please give US the option of how we want to handle selections!

  18. save different pencils to menu bar so can rapidly change from one to another

    Have ability to save different pencils to menu bar (with different properties) so you can rapidly change from one to the other. Now you can only save one pencil and you need to manually adjust the properties each time you want to change it. (In Customize Comments Tools)

  19. OCR and comments

    When OCR occurs, any comments and arrows previously added turn sideways and move to random locations, which makes them useless.
