  1. default font color for text boxes changes to last used color instead of staying the user defined "mark as default" color

    When changing an existing text box font color from the default color to a different color, the next time I open and use a text box, the font color is whatever color I last used.

    This is a nuisance, make it stop, if I set up a 'set as default' the font color for any 'new' text should stay that color, no matter if I change the font color later or not.

    The font color has different meanings (Actionable inputs) associated with the colors, when the action has been accomplished, I change the font color, this doesn't mean I want…

  2. Problem showing comments sorted by date

    Hey from Germany,

    I'm trying to use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC for the second time. My job is to correct texts by using the "comment" function; my favourite function is sorting my comments by date, so that I can see what I did last. I love the function that the comment list is grouped by days; it happens frequently that I have 150, 300, 500, 1000 comments a day – and there the list seems to have a poblem: After a certain number of entries a day, I cannot scroll down anymore and the list is cut off at the…

  3. comment

    I highlight and annotate documents a lot for pre-production scripts to visualize filming production. I'd love to have the comment feature add more intuitive highlighting features and ability to link to a storyboard or visualization I have for that specific scene or line.

  5. Canned Responses

    Could Adobe add a tool for users to create, organize, and use precreated responses to common problems or questions? As a writing instructor, I would find this tool invaluable, as I respond to common problems in student writing. I expect other professionals who encounter situation where they offer similar responses to multiple documents would benefit from this tool. Thank you for considering this request.

  6. Conditional Formatting for Text Boxes & Comments

    I have real estate projects that have multiple buildings on a map that get released for sale on a regular basis. I would love to have the ability to have the text box, or callout box, arrows, lines, etc. to change color based on status. For instance, I write "STARTED" in my text box and the box, text, and arrows attached to that text box turn Green. I write "FUTURE" and it turns Red.This way I can replace the underlying map, and color code the comments automatically based on criteria I select.

  7. Super slow switching between text annotation tools on macOS

    The simple highlight text, underline and other markup tools take seconds to switch between. Do you mine bitcoin in between switching? :–) Also see requests "An Urgent Need for Better and Bolder Annotation Tools" and "Make it possible to copy highlighted text". You seem to answer only to selected comments. I enjoyed much better reception with my requests for bugs on the iPad app.

  10. "Send File > Attach to email" and "Send for Shared Commenting" do not send emails

    Click Send for Shared Commenting and follow the steps in wizard to add a note and recipients, and so on. When complete, the message appears that the email is created in the email program, but the email is never created. Usually it would appear in the Outbox, and could be sent. Nothing ever appears.

    As a workaround, I tried to "send file, attach to email' to send the review enabled pdf. The email opens with the pdf attached, and i sent. First time i got an error that the file could not be found, and the email was not sent.…

  14. Undo action

    Ctrl+ z action does "Undo" of last activity in adobe writer. However, cursor or screen display does not move to specific location in file where undo has happened. Some time in hurry, we dont even come to know that we have undone some work. Hence, i suggest, undo should take cursor and screen to concerned page similar to excel, word etc.

    Kindly check if it is worth enough to consider.

  18. Sticky Notes show a nonexistent user's name

    I can provide screenshots via email. Suddenly, although I've changed nothing, I add a sticky note and it has someone else's name who had never commented on a PDF ever, and is not associated with my account!

  19. BUG: cannot open PDF

    Myself and a coworker cannot open a PDF with sharing/commenting capabilities. Acrobat DC Pro will open, but once I select a file, the program closes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program. The PDF will open in Preview.

  20. Comment Arrow

    The arrow in the comment section will not change color... It seems to be locked, but when i click on Properties the Locked box is uncheck. The only way to change the color is to make it a default, every time.
