  1. Reintroduce Hiding Comments

    Previous versions of Acrobat would hide comments when their status changed and no longer matched the current filter. Can we bring this back? It makes doing corrections so much easier.

  2. show correct colours for CMYK annotations

    According to the PDF spec it's possible to create coloured annotations which are non-RGB. However, when you create i.e. a CMYK annotation, Acrobat takes the first three values and interprets them as RGB. I.e. [1 0 0 0] results in red instead of cyan, see attached example.
    Interestingly, Preflight validates the document so somewhere in the company the knowledge is available.
    The goal should be that annotations are displayed correctly independent of how many colour channels are there.

  3. Coloured background bookmarks

    The bookmark tool only allows you to change the colourt of the text and not the background colour.

    It would be useful to be able to have say yellow tabs with black text

    It would be useful to have simple coloured bookmarks which operate like coloured tabs in level arch files. These can mark out a particular top eg jet engine fan blade orders

    In addition these can be nested sorted/arranged if necessary with secondary labels/hidden text which appears when you hover over them.

  4. Checking comments by keyboard lags

    Acrobat 20.6.20034.366983 on Mac OSX 10.14.6

    Open a PDF with comments and select comment pane.

    Select a comment with the cursor.

    Press shift-K. The comment's checkbox should be checked.

    Instead, nothing happens.

    Press down arrow to move to next comment. The checkbox gets checked.

    The reverse also holds true--when using the keyboard to uncheck a comment, the checkmark doesn't get cleared until you navigate off the comment.

    In the video, the box is getting checked only when I hit the down arrow key and move to the next comment. You can also see the reverse, except one time (the comment…

  5. change acrobat DC to DO. DESKTOP ONLY

    Buy a dictionary or, better yet, use your iPad to lookup the meaning of ANY. On your website it says DC pro WORKS ON ANY DEVICE.

    There are millions of these new things called tablets sold every year (for the last 10 years) Send someone from marketing back to elementary school to learn about ANY. When they get to law school, attend the class on false and misleading. REALLY disappointed with Adobe.

  6. Comment window stuck open

    It is possible to highlight text, but not enter anything in the comment box (no need to in my case). Eventually, the comment box locks in place and you can't close it.
    Workaround: save and close the document and re-open it.

  7. 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

  8. 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 ..

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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)

  16. OCR and comments

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

  18. Moving sticky notes between far off pages in PDF

    Please introdue a feature where sticky notes can be moved between far off pages within and also if possible between PDFs.

    This should be done so that files having lots of sticky notes in them can be smoothly worked with. I have a file with 3000+ sticky notes in it but the notes are all in different pages and I want to streamline it.

    Copy pasting content individually one sticky note at a time is tedious and so would request Adobe to allow a feature where one can simply drag the sticky notes across the pages.

    One solution is by…

  19. checkmarks need to be not user-specific (or set status should be more easily accessible)

    (checked) checkmarks should be visible for others that open the file > that way you can share which comments are done and which are not.
    Orrr make the status more accessible so you don't have to right click / drop down to check it. If you have over 100 comment to check it is too tedious a job :)

  20. password encription

    In one of the last updates, the password security has changed from allowing one to copy and paste the password into the dialogue box to requiring a manual typing of the password. When putting the password into a document for the client to open, there is always a chance to type the incorrect password and the document cannot be opened. When the document cannot be opened, I do not know what has changed from the proposed password. Having a copy and paste assures that the password in the document sent to the client is also the one securing the attached…
