  1. Why clicking twice for checkboxes?!

    In the previous version you can easly click on the checkbox, because it was in the same row (view) as the comment. Now you have to click twice to click the checkbox. Please make it as it was!

      • 2 steps to add check to comments - Build: 19.8.20071.303822

        In previous versions of Acrobat I was able to Check a comment (typically once I had made an edit to my InDesign doc). By setting the filter to show unchecked comments only I was systematically able to go through a set of clients edits. In the new version of Acrobat you have removed the ability to just click to check a comment. I now have to open a drop down menu and select it. This is really annoying when you have a large document with over 100 comments (as I regularly do).

        Please return the simple check box to the…

          • Tick box in comments disappeared after last update

            I always used the tick box while reviewing, using a filter so that comments I processed also disappeared. It was an easy and intuitive way of editing the source text with the help of the comments in the PDF. After the last update, the tick box is gone and now hidden. You have to click the dots in the top right corner of the comment, then select 'Set status' and then click the status. That's THREE clicks instead of one. NOT user friendly, NOT intuitive, NO improvement. Please give me back my tick box!

              • Customize Comment Pane

                The comments pane takes up WAY too much space. I would like the ability to customize what I see there.

                Currently in the Comments pane, it display the:

                -Author Name
                -Type of Comment
                -Text within the pop-up note
                -Date and Time

                Sometimes all of this information is useful, but most of the time, I don't need to see all that! It is a waste of screen space. I would like the ability to show to only those options which I need. In this case, I just want to see what is in the pop-up note, nothing more.

                We can customize…

                • Make Comments Toolbar Open Automatically/By Default

                  I would LOVE it if you folks could make the Comments Tool auto-open and/or by default somehow. I open lots and lots of pages every day and it would be really wonderful if the Comments just opened every time I opened a new doc.

                    • new update makes work inefficient

                      This recent update is extremely frustrating. It dropped off tools that were in my toolbar previously (page view/zoom options disappeared) and I had to figure out how to get them back.

                      Not only is the comments bar is now uglier/bulkier, when you have sorted comments to not include ones marked as completed it no longer dynamically removes the comments you mark as you go. You now have to go back and clear your comment filter and reapply "none" to hide completed comments.

                      To add insult to injury, there is no longer an option for other versions in ACC, so I…

                      • Comments and Annotations need marching ants

                        In previous versions of Acrobat, it was a LOT easier to see which comment on a page was selected. There sue to be marching ants. Now, there is just a thin blue line that doesn't march. Please bring back the marching ants so it's easier to see what is selected. Our eyes aren't getting any younger!

                        • Filter by unchecked still shows checked comments that I made.

                          When I set comments to only show unchecked comments, but then I reply to an unchecked comment, then check both that comment and my comment, it won't filter these newly checked comments.

                          I have to choose "show all comments" then filter by unchecked again for it to work. Please fix.

                          • Default Font for Adding Text to PDF's

                            I have wasted hours upon hours of time changing my font from minion pro to arial every time I edit/add text to a new PDF, and even when I switch pages within one PDF. It should be the most basic tool offered, the ability to set a default font for all Adobe PDFs. If this does not exist yet, IT NEEDS TO, please!!!!

                                Open an existing comment bubble popup that has text in it. Select (highlight) the text. Now just move the mouse cursor slightly outside of the comment popup boundary. The text you highlighted becomes unhighlighted! I can’t even express how maddeningly frustrating this is. We have hundreds of edits a day that we need to copy the comment text out of Acrobat.

                                We are CONSTANTLY selecting the text, hitting COMMAND+C, switching over to a different program to paste, only to realize that either nothing gets pasted in or the text from the previous edit is still on the clipboard. I finally…

                                  • Can we have the old one back. This is too cumbersome.

                                    So hard to use and wastes so much of my time looking for things.
                                    I just need the preview/navigator on the side so I can rotate or crop and a highlighter in the tools and the hand to move the page around. Every time I open a file it defaults back to nothing I can use. Please bring back version 10

                                    • Make it possible to copy highlighted text

                                      It should be possible to copy the text easily from a highlight. Right now, this is almost impossible. (One had to switch to the Edit tool). Why not create a Copy Highlight item in the context menu. Or, when one clicks on and selects a highlight, why not simply let CMD-C do the job?

                                      • Emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API issue

                                        When emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API, the default Outlook Signature is missing from the New Email Window. If possible, can this be corrected?

                                        • Annotation appearance dict missing ExtGState

                                          Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20071, Mac and Windows.

                                          Open any file or create a new one. Right click on the page and select "Add sticky note." Save the file. At this point the file contains an invalid appearance dict for the sticky note. The stream uses a graphics state /GS0 which is not available in the Resources dict of the annotation.

                                          Worse, if the page happened to already have a /GS0 graphics state, that will now be used for the annotation.
