  2. Ability to have text boxes and callouts with choice of 2 default styles of properties

    I would like to have Style 1 and Style 2 as choices for text boxes and callouts AND be able to have them as part of my quick tools. (For example, I want my comments that will cause changes to be in one color and my comments--which won't cause changes--be in another color.) Right now, I have one format (eg, red box with yellow fill) for changes. But I would like to be able to have another choice (eg, green box with blue fill) for comments that won't involve changes to the document.

  3. Formatting-independent pasting into sticky notes

    I often look up word translations and paste them into sticky notes beside the text. It would be great if there was a short-cut (Cmd+Alt+Shift+V) like there is in Pages to paste content right into the standard formatting of sticky notes. Otherwise, the text pasted from a webpage will often be too large or will contain distracting hyperlinks (see attached). Thanks!

  4. Add checkmark to multiple filtered Comments without also checking all the (unfiltered) comments in-between

    When multiple comments contain the same text we can search for them and view them all, without seeing all other comments. However, if we then add a checkmark to all of these comments (by first selecting all of them and then clicking one of their checkmarks) all of the [hidden] comments (ones which didn't match the search) that appear on pages in-between are also given a checkmark. This is obvious if we have the 'Unchecked' filter selected, as when clearing the search many more comments have vanished, not just the ones which matched the search. Please fix it so that…

  5. Adding a detail view

    It would be nice to add a "Detail Magnifying Glass" which will take a screen-shot of the selected part of the document and place it with the desired magnification level on the document for commenting or plain detailing just like engineering drafting applications.

  6. Strip ALL formatting information from text pasted into a comment

    When pasting text copied from a FrameMaker document into an Acrobat comment, ALL the system fonts are listed in the comment.

    Current workaround is to paste the copied text into a text editor and then recopy the information from the text editor.

  8. Highlighting

    Hello. I regularly use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for reading PDFs for school. With some kinds, I can just highlight the text normally, and that works great. Congratulations and great job! However, sometimes my professors simply photocopy pages from a book, and I have to draw on highlights. Does that make sense? Now, here's the issue. Sometimes, when I draw it in a straight enough line, it automatically makes it straight. That's nice, HOWEVER, sometimes it doesn't follow the line of the text and doesn't match up with the way the text is on the page. I've attached a sample…

    I use the comment section for note taking my lecture and when I am going through and editing the comments when I press post there is a glitch that deletes the edits I made and changes the font. This needs to be fixed! It's very annoying.

  10. use compare report and send it for shared review with old and new file side-by-side view

    I have 2 pdfs, version 1 and version 2. Using compare pdf, I can able to view the changes made and save the compare report and see side-by-side.

    But, when I send the compare report for shared review, but the reviewers can see only the new file with comments and can not see side-by-side on browser.

    Enable side-by-side view for shared review through browser. So the reviewers can easily identify the changes from version 1 to version 2 and it is easy for them to review

  11. Send for Review- No option for check boxes and Filtering does not work!

    Removing the checkmarks is a problem across the board, but I am specifically irritated that it is not an option at all if you share for review in the cloud. My only option for keeping track of edits I have done is to "resolve" each comment. Also, if I filter by unresolved comments, it does not automatically filter live as I am working. So as I resolve a comment, it stays in the comment pane until I go back up, remove my filter, and then add the filter again.

  12. Less usser friendly

    Acrobat DC is far less easy to use than previous versions. Cannot easliy draw, add lines or objects to drawings for as built drawings. Extremely disappointed with the it. More difficult to extract pages, and the operation seems slow compared to previous versions.

  14. Need checkboxes on comments for Cloud documents

    Adobe support told me today that you can only use checkboxes on comments in locally-saved pdfs. In online pdfs (like the ones created when you use the Send for Review feature, default online option), you can't checkmark your comments list, you can only use the weird right-click, set as "resolved". This takes too long, is fussy. Please add the checkmark on comments option for online-stored pdfs as well.

    thanks!

  15. Bug Report - Copy and paste rotate

    When copying and pasting a comment I made from one page to another page of a PDF, the comment gets rotated - https://www.screencast.com/t/nso1JyUv7FtG

    This rotation is unnecessary (not good)
    Furthermore, there is no obvious way to fix the rotated comment by rotating it back.

  16. Option to Generate Email From Comment

    I would love functionality that would allow the user to generate an email from a comment, including the comment or a screen capture of the comment [in place] after a review closes. I spend a lot of time screen capturing comments and their location and pasting them into emails to continue a conversation with select reviewers.

  17. Función subrayar y agregar texto en MacBook

    La versión para Mac no viene con las funciones de agregar texto ni subrayar, como la app para iPad y iPhone. Sería muy útil que las agregaran

  18. Use Name when submitting Comments

    Use the Name field instead of the User Name field when making comments in Document Cloud.
    Easier to know who is commenting.

  20. Comment resize anchor points are too large

    Comment resize anchor points (the squares on the corners/edges) are too large - please allow option to change the size of the 'resize anchor points', similar to illustrator.
