  3. Writing Chinese character shows wrong one

    As shown on the screenshot writing the Chinese character [lìng] (the drawed on the left but the result when closed the text box is de left drawing of a character). Also as seen in the screenshot the intended is the still open text box and after when I closed it, continuing to next comment, it becomes another character.
    The problem is both on the Android version and the Windows version of Adobe Reader.
    Pleas fix this soon.
    Thanks a lot. You're doing a really great program.

    I think Highlighting tool needs improvement to be more dynamic in the reader's hand, change the highlight colour and the option to name the colour is important, like 'main idea' 'to summarise' ...etc.
    there is a good example for highlighting in the app Bookshelf.

  9. Comments and highlights should look color coded

    Comments and highlights should look color coded regardless of how they are sorted out... all in the same color looks elegant and everything but it was MUCH easier to read comments in past versions of Acrobat when they were shown with their color

  11. Comment markups randomly disappear

    1. Comment markups randomly disappear from the screen, sometimes when zooming in and out, sometimes when scrolling. Sometimes they all disappear, sometimes just part of a page. Zooming or scrolling does not fix the problem. They will not draw correctly until I hide Acrobat, then making it the active application again, sometimes I have to quit the application and restart to solve the problem.
    2. Acrobat Pro DC 2019, Mac

    I need to use a split screen, half InDesign, half Acrobat, when I'm running corrections. That does not leave real estate for the giant comment sidebar in Acrobat, so I need to…

  12. Comment-Stamp Bug

    When adding a stamp to a document, it automatically adds an additional blank comment as well. This is new and unexpected behavior. The file attached has 3 stamps on it but 6 comments were created - there should only be 3 comments created by the stamps.

  13. request for future improvement of functionality

    In our day-to-day work, we have documents that are required to be signed on each page (or at least stamped on each page). My current work-around is that I have loaded a 'stamp' into the initials field in Adobe DC and use this to identify each page in a report that I issue.

    An example is attached which shows the green coloured "Audit Identified Only" stamp on the top right of each page. This 'stamp' has been applied as a signature (using initials) on each page.

    It would be useful to have someway of 'stamping' or 'signing' each page with…

  14. highlighter malfunctions and is far too large

    When I go to highlight text, the highlighter is the size of about half a page. Other forums suggested that this had to do with formatting by acrobat, but it happens in all documents. This feature is virtually useless. Perhaps its a bug that could use fixing.

  15. Comments aren't filtering correctly

    When I filter by name, not all of the comments that user contributed are showing in the right-hand pane. It's really problematic because those comments are being skipped over and not getting a response.

  16. Create dummy page for visual commenting on locked PDF to show changes

    I've made rectangles and arrows in addition to verbal comments to indicate placement changes on page layouts for locked PDFs from an overseas production vendor (I think the requests were getting lost in translation). It would have been much easier to create/reference a dummy page with low resolution or lightened placeholders that I could have adjusted. And it would be a bonus if those placeholders referenced the original objects for the changes to be accepted/applied by the owner of the PDF.

  17. The order of operation for "highlight" and "insert text" is inconsistent.

    When highlighting in the newest version of Acrobat Pro, one may select the highlight feature and then highlight the text, just as one would do with a physical highlighter. When using the "Insert text at cursor" feature, however, one must first place the cursor in the desired location and then select the insert text feature. This seems inconsistent with the highlight feature. I don't recall this being the case in the previous version and I'm having trouble getting use to the change. (One of many.)

  18. A user suggestion for improving Adobe Acrobat capabilities: Extracting all of the highlighted texts in one step

    As you are well aware, the users of Adobe Acrobat (or similar products) usually apply ‘Highlight Text’ to highlight or summarize parts of the text or the book that they are reading in PDF format.

    After finishing to read the text, if the user can have the ability to extract (in one step) all the highlighted parts in the format of a MS Word or other PDF file; this can be very handy and helpful; since this way the user can easily make an outlined summary of the read text or book ready for future references.

    I wonder if the…

  20. shrink the corner circles on lines and stamps

    A recent update made the circles in the corners of lines drawn with the pencil tool or small stamps applied absolutely HUGE, obscuring the line/stamp itself as well as the text below it.

    This makes it near impossible to properly position a line/stamp and also to see what the heck it is when you select it in the comments pane.

    I work in publishing, and we need to be able to precisely place proofreading marks and be able to read them so we can see what to do with the source text file.
