  1. 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

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. Comment text fades when clicked away from, no opacity option

    When using the add comment text tool the text appears normal when initially typed but fades when clicked away from. The support agents I spoke with said there should be an opacity slider for that tool however there is only the option to change color.

  6. Bring back ctrl-A as a shortcut to select all (or filtered comments)

    This was a feature in XI Pro. It went away with DC. I want to be able to use control-A to select comments. That keyboard shortcut has been disabled.

  7. Bug: The last one of the Korean charaters is relocated at the end of the string when inserted in the middle of strings

    There's no problem when words are typed in serial order.

    However if you insert some Korean characters in the middle of any strings and 'enter the SPACE key', the last one of the charaters is entered forcefully at the end of the strings.

    It is impossble to add or insert some Korean words in the middle of the strings in comments. So we have to use ctrl+C and ctrl+V. it's really uncomfortable. Please fix it. All the versions of acrobat including the latest version have the same bug.

  8. Manual Sort for Comments/ Sticky Notes

    Please create a manual sort/ shuffle function for comments to improve team project and instruction communication.

    The idea is to be able to shuffle comments around and print them in a 'manual sort' order rather than most recently updated.
    Often comments need to be viewed in a particular order to make sense.
    Or they may need to be actioned in a particular order to work properly

    This is especially true for visual or construction/ workflow based projects but we don't always think "in order" so being able to shuffle our comments would allow us to improve our communication before sharing…

  10. Feature request: ctrl+click to select multiple noncontiguous comments

    I need to be able to manipulate multiple non-adjacent comments. Example: select many comments and unlock all, or mark all with checkmark. Just as shift+click will select all comments between the first and last click, ctrl+click should select one and another without affecting those in between.

  12. Option to hide page numbers from comment pane

    In the comments pane, is there an option to hide the page numbers or make them non-selectable? I'm finding it difficult to maneuver/advance to the next comment using the down arrow (or tab). With the upgrade to DC, Adobe "selects" the page number as you're tabbing through. i can no longer smoothly go from comment to comment

  14. Accept checkbox is missing in Acrobat Pro April 2019

    In the new version 19.10 (April 2019) you deleted the checkbox of accepting a comment. Now I have to do a right click and navigate to "accept". Why? Please make it possible again!

  15. Check marks not appearing when opening coworker's PDF.

    When I open my coworker's copy of a PDF with most of the 500+ comments checked as addressed, I don't see his check marks. I have Version 2019.019.010.20100. He has an earlier version. The commenting feature no longer makes collaboration easy. Is this a result of the update?

  17. Summary Comment list - all on 1 page

    The summary of the comments creates a page for each corresponding comment. For example, page 2 has 3 comments, page 6 has one comment, etc. The summary creates a page for the comments on page 2 and page 6. Because the comments already identify the page where they are located, we should be able to simply get a list of all the comments in a document. All comments on 1 page or more if a bunch of comments. In my example, assuming the comments are not lengthy, the summary should generate 1 page with comments consecutively from pages 2 and…
