  1. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Bug: Comment Bubbles & comments in Comment Window not updating until after text comment is complete

    Recreate Bug:

    Open document
    Open Comment Tools
    Display Comment Window
    Highlight text to replace
    Create comment by highlighting text and typing.

    Bug: The first character will be shown in the popup bubble and the comment window, but the rest will not be shown until the mouse is clicked away from the comment, completing the comment.

  9. 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

  10. 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?

  11. please create an arrow-end drawing tool, too.

    please make an arrow-end drawing tool. With this it is easy to show connection between two ideas in a text.

  12. Separate Move tool for Comments

    In Acrobat DC I'm fnding it very difficult to move comments (e.g. a text box) once it has been placed. The Move cursor disappears and simply doesn't come back. I place comments on recruitment forms, both signed and new ones, and I need to move comments around simply and easily on the form. I don't have time to struggle with it, or to wait hoping a move cursor might appear.

  14. Can't select a text annotation - Acrobat Pro 2017

    In Acrobat X a text annotation (created with the Typewriter tool) could easily be selected by merely clicking on it. In Acrobat Pro 2017 there seems to be no way to select it. This is a real show stopper for me since I often need to delete or copy/paste a group of selected line, text, and other annotations.

  16. Comment panel not intuitive

    It is not intuitive any more to bring up the panel on the right showing all comments in the document. I figured it out eventually, but should be a much easier, more user-friendly option.

  17. Sometimes DC won't save comments

    Twice in the last two weeks, DC refused to save the same file with comments. I clicked on save, and the save box came up empty. I tried all alternatives, including saving to cloud, and nothing worked. So I lost the results of two work sessions. I'm using latest version of DC on Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. I've tried rebooting before running DC, but it didn't help. What's the solution?

  20. Need a cell library or "my tool" section for special shapes used over and over in multiple documents

    Need a cell library or "my tool" section for special shapes used over and over in multiple documents. Often I comment on engineering plans and have to create special shapes and text boxes which are used repeatedly. It be nice to save them somewhere to make life easier.
