  1. Acrobat DC Highlight text not working

    I used to choose highlighter tool and highlight sentences. Now a vertical line appears and highlights a diamond.

    This needs to be corrected! Complete BS that this does not work.

    If this is done purposely than it illustrates how the human mind of younger people working in tech has lost touch with all reality.

    Once again great software deteriorating and making getting work more troublesome and costing people jobs.

    Hail climate change and more C02!

  2. restore

    I frequently add comments to drawing files created in Adobe format. It works great if a person can remember to save the file every time changes are made. If he can't because the user gets side tracked and opens another file and experiences a adobe crash everything is lost. When users start editing an adobe file, it should work just like Word where it auto saves every so often so that if a crash occurs, all the comments are restored also and not just the original file.

  3. Printing with comments doesn't work as expected

    After sending a document for review, I tried to print the document with the comments showing, it will only show the comments on a separate page. There should be a way to print the document with the comments on the same page AND in the spot, or linked to the spot where the comments were made. Example - how the page is shown in Acrobat with the comments to the right and the spot where the comment was made visible so we can tell where it is referencing.

  4. Allow favourite stamps palette be visible

    Can you select Stamps, particularly favourites to be all always visible as opposed to having to open two menus to select a new one. Previous versions had this functionality, not sure if it's gone or hard to find now.

  5. Stop comment posts from going to side of document

    The new option for putting comment to the side of the document is causing more problems. I have many many comments, often in horizontal documents, to edit for indesign files. Have to make the window so large to see comments it's difficult to go back and forth. Please make an option to open comments inside the document page as before. Thank you.

  6. Comments have very tiny text when selected

    Have to copy text from Acrobat pdf comments constantly. It is impossible to read when the comment box is open (clicked to copy text). Why does it have to change size from the open comment column when clicked? Please fix this, makes jobs take twice as long as they need to.

  8. Change colors in Compare Mode

    In previous versions of Acrobat (CC2015 era) you could adjust the Color Legend when running the Compare tool.

    This feature is now missing from current iterations of Acrobat.

  9. Keyboard Shorcuts for Set Status

    It would be incredibly useful to be able to set keyboard shortcuts for the "Set Status: None, Accepted, Completed, Cancelled, and Rejected" commenting tools.

    Set status, to me is an advanced feature used to enable more efficient workflows, adding keyboard shortcuts would add even more efficiency.

  12. Comment Tab Needs to Stay Open

    My old adobe used to keep the comments tab open. This updated version closes it constantly, anytime I press escape out of one of the comment tools and it's a pain. I do a lot of markups using adobe and it makes me want to just print and hand-redline the drawings instead. PLEASE bring back the "always open" option for the comments tab...

  13. Basic commenting is arduous

    Is there a way to turn off the feature where the pdf becomes "editable" if all you want to do is add new text and arrows to an existing document?

    And how do you turn off the "please wait while the document is being prepared for reading" feature? That is soooo annoying

  14. Beim kommentieren von Plänen stört das neue kleine Fenster f. d. Auswahl Notiz hinzufügen/ löschen massiv.

    Beim kommentieren von Plänen stört das neue kleine Fenster für die Auswahl Notiz hinzufügen/ löschen massiv.
    Kann man das Fenster ausschalten? Denn beim Arbeiten mit Plänen sitzt das Fenster oft im Zielbereich von Linien etc.

  15. always open in comment mode

    Please allow us to set our preference for what mode acrobat opens to at startup. All I do is comment on pdfs, and it is extremely tedious to always have to choose "comment mode" and then set up my properties toolbar the way I want it every time. I can modify my work space in other adobe products, why not this one?

  16. Restore ability to rotate comment text and shapes

    This was a function in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Please restore it ASAP. It is an important function for my business.

  17. change highlight color

    Add the ability to change the pre-defined colors for the highlight tool. Having to highlight first, than go and change the properties of the highlighted text just to replace Adobes forced colors wastes a lot of time

  19. Include highlight color in contextual menu

    Graduate students, researchers and practitioners are required to stay up-to-date in their area of expertise. This means they regularly read academic papers, white papers, e-books, reports, and other documents that come as PDF.

    Having a quick way to switch between colors when highlighting and commenting text (i.e., without relying on the "Comment" menu on the top of the screen) would allow more effective reading.

    This could be easily implemented by including a "color" command in the contextual menu that pops up when hovering the mouse on the top of highlighted text (right now it shows "Add comment" and "delete" only).

  20. Remove icons on comments

    When I place a comment, a trash can icon or sticky note icon appears, but those icons only get in the way of the content I'm trying to comment on. It would be great to be able to disable that feature.
