  1. Anonymous review

    Anonymous review (especially commenting) of PDF documents is an absolutely essential feature for academics. We are required to do anonymous peer reviews of manuscripts submitted for publication on a regular basis. This used to be simple, but is now impossible, unless one wishes to change each comment on a one-by-one basis. If you don't restore this basic functionality, you risk losing a huge group of users.

  2. Apple & Adobe, quit foisting your problems onto your custormers!!!!!

    Here's a unique idea. Software idiots at Apple start talking to the software idiots at Adobe! Work out your problems on the company level before forcing your bad programming on your customers in the form of buggy forced upgradates!!!!!! My computer used to work wonderfully, now it's just a ********** brick because of forced updates!!

  3. BUG: Dark Mode copy and pastes invisible text

    When copying text from a dark mode app on Mac (Mail app) and pasting it into the comment box in Acrobat the the formatting stays which creates white text on a white comment box, ie invisible. The workaround is to highlight the text, right click, and "clear formatting". This adds lots of time as we do this frequently. See screenshots for a better explanation. Thanks!

  4. Changes compared between 2 PDFs are not accurate

    When comparing 2 versions of a PDF, some of the items the program highlights come up as changes where there isn't any. For example, in one section, a piece of text had been moved a few millimeters, and yet the program registered it as a completely new piece of text, which is false.

    What are the rules on how Acrobat identifies changes between 2 PDFs? And can this be altered by Adobe and/or the user?

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  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.

  16. 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…

  19. 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

  20. 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?
