              • Add Dynamic Stamp function to the toolbar

                Stamping takes too long. I can add the stamp command to the toolbar, but I have to click on that, which opens another menu, then I have to click on stamp, then choose a favorite or a dynamic stamp. It would be much quicker if I could add the favorite or dynamic directly to the toolbar to eliminate so many steps. If I have to stamp 200 pages, it takes a very long time. Also a keyboard shortcut for dynamic or favorite stamp would be awesome. Come on guys, this should be easy.

                • Comment Windows: Display Sticky Note Color

                  In Acrobat 9, the "comments" window displayed the COLOR of the corresponding sticky note (there was a small sticky note icon in each window that showed the color of the corresponding note).It was possible to quickly view and navigate to related pages/sections of the PDF even if the page was not directly viewable; I could quickly scan for all comments that were associated with a RED sticky note, or a BLUE one, etc, by simply scrolling through the comments -- it was not necessary to view the actual page of the PDF to check the color of the sticky note.

                  • Acrobat crashes frequently when using highlighter on large scanned PDF

                    Steps to reproduce the issue:
                    Open a large scanned PDF, use the highlighter for several times until the bug happens, which when I'm moving the highlighter across scanned texts Acrobat stop responding, and sometimes there's a large transparent window found by Spy++ on top of other windows.

                    Environment (OS, other related application versions, etc.)
                    Windows 10 Version 1709 Build 16299.309

                      • Adobe Standard XI huge downgrade

                        I had Adobe Pro 9. I used it at work to add stamps, and markup drawings. My machine was rebuilt and Adobe Standard XI was loaded. Very inefficient software for what I need. I searched for the comparison to XI Pro and am not convinced it is any better.
                        Some issues: preloaded stamps cannot be removed, each stamp has to be selected every time (9 would remember the last used), you cannot copy multiple objects using the control button, you cannot save a custom sheet sized when printing (previously you could, issue of width/length for some sizes being backwards still…

                              Hi User, Thanks for reaching out to us.
                              The workaround for this is to click on the text properties icon bar to hide the properties so that you can easily see the text box.
                              Please let us know if this works for you.

                              For the second ask, can you explain the issue again as we are not clear with the ask here.

                            • highlight

                              PLZ offer a "read mode" that highlighting without a comment pop-up!!!

                              For many times when I'm reading I'd like to highlight some words but have nothing to comment- however it creates an empty pop-up... When I sometimes have to find out a useful comment I have to go through hundreds of empty comments in the comment list.

                              • Acrobat Comments is now a mess

                                There used to be lines in between each comment that help you see where one comment ended and the next one started. The new comments panel design is a mess that makes it hard to distinguish which comment is checked and which is not everything just flows together in one long indistinguishable mess. And for God’s sake bring back the old method of checking off a comment.

                                • Not able to filter in comments with Acrobat 2019

                                  Document made in Acrobat Pro DC 2018 and sent for review.
                                  Came back with multiple comments. Those of them that got fixed got marked. Then I could come back later and show only unmarked comments. It works just fine in 2018 version. But with New Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20080 it does not work. As soon as i click on the filter button to sort the comments the whole Acrobat gets jammed. I have tried several times, also restarted computer. So there must be something wrong here.

                                    Hi ,
                                    Thanks for reaching out to us. We regret the inconvenience caused to you.
                                    We have tried at our end to reproduce the issue but we are unable to do so.
                                    Can you provide the review link of the review file or a local copy of the review file with all the comments to investigate further ?

                                  • why can i not just highlight something? Why am I prompted to fill out a comment as well?

                                    The older versions I could just highlight something, now I am forced to highlight and then enter a comment or manually close the comment box. Also, why can I not pin the comment features (box, arrows, text) to the task bar like you use to be able to?

                                    Thank you,

                                    • Did you guys bury my most-used feature?

                                      Hi, Yesterday when I opened Acrobat DC, and I viewed comments, I could check off the comment as completed right there in the comment's own panel. today when I opened the same program, in order to mark a comment as completed, I have to open two levels of a flyout menu.
                                      How do I unbury this check box so I do not have to add twice as much clicking to my proofreading process?

                                      • Your circular icons in the comment panel are painful to look at. The "Text-replace" icon is illegible

                                        You need to clean-up / simplify your comment circle icons, the previous version had non-distracting icons, in the newest version all I can pay attention to is how poor the "text-replace" icon is, scales poorly.

                                        • Commenting Authors colours

                                          Hello,

                                          I'm a graphic designer and receive a lot of amends to work via PDFs using comments I can have upto 200 comments to deal with. Previously you had authors names in different colours so you could clearly pick out the changes. Now with the new update, all fonts are in black or grey. It needs to be at least customisable for the viewer to change this in the preferences.
