  1. Modifying Sticky Note Orientation / Size

    When adding a sticky note to a document, it faces the wrong way. I wish there was a way to rotate it so the talk bubble faces in the direction of the text, as well as resizing it, or at least, allow it to scale with the text. If I resize the document, the icon doesn't appear to stay locked. I've use the arrow on the bottom but would prefer the talk bubble.

    Is there a way to adjust the orientation of these icons?

    Thanks

  2. mark up tools:

    what happened to the old mark up tools? highlight text with note, delete text (red line through), etc??
    I used those extensively previously, and this new version is pretty useless without them

    Hi, Thanks for reaching out to us.
    We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    Can you use Strikethrough text or Add Note to replace text to create the red line through .
    If you have any specific requirement of a new annot , please let us know the exact use case for the same .
    If the use case is not met by existing annots, we shall add this requirement to our product backlog.

    Hi User, Thanks for reaching out to us.
    Are you facing this issue only for highlight or for other annots as well ?

    Can you uncheck the commenting preference “Automatically open comment pop-ups for comment other than notes” and try to create another highlight. Please let us know if this resolves the issue for you.

  4. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20080 constantly crashing when deleting comments

    My copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20080 is constantly crashing when deleting comments. Since Adobe removed the tick box from the commenting feature, which was easily the worst UI/UX decision in recent history, I have resorted to deleting comments in order to be able to go through documents with hundreds of markups.

    However, the current version fo Acrobat pro DC can only handle a couple of comment deletions in a row, and literally crashes after every 5 to 10 comments.

    So if I have a document with 700+ comments, you can imagine my frustration and the amount of crashing.…

  5. Enable Copying Highlighted Text on Mac w/ Cmd+C

    On a Mac in Default Mode, it should be possible to copy highlighted text by using the keyboard shortcut.

    Now, all you can do is select the highlighted parts and right-click -> Copy Text. Why shouldn't it be possible to select the highlighted parts and press Cmd+C?

    Doing the extra clicking work is very labor intensive when working with a lot of previously highlighted paragraphs.

  8. Comment Text too small.

    When I double click the comment box in the right column so that I can select it (to copy and paste) the text becomes so tiny that it's illegible.

  9. You need to bring back the check box.

    When you have 500+ comments/corrections its time consuming to have to right click to mark each one. It was MUCH better before when you just marked the box.

    In the latest update of Acrobat DC, we have modernize the commenting experience and at the same time, made it very clean and intuitive to use. As part of that, the checkbox is moved to the right click menu of the comment.

    Open comment>Right Click>Add Checkmark

    Please also note that both the sort and filter options are available for the check mark.
    We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and will consider adding the check mark by default for future updates of Acrobat DC.

    However there is one workaround to make the checkbox appear in one step by using the keyboard shortcut SHIFT + K .

  10. Where is the "detect pen hardware" checkbox?

    Where did the "auto detect pen hardware to enable markup" go? It was in preferences/commenting/making comments. Without this feature acrobat is worthless for commenting on a touch screen with a stylus. I can't imagine anyone would think it was a good idea to remove, hopefully it is just located somewhere else. Also note, STOP CHANGING the UI!!! This is the last issue I will ever try to resolve. I am sick of having to google how to undo new "features". In the future I will simply move on to a more consistent software.

  12. Acrobat DC crashes when attempting to filter comments.

    When I try to filter comments on a PDF Acrobat freezes and i have to force quit the program. The size of the file and the number of comments are not factors, acrobat crashes every time. I"m MacOS Sierra 10.12.6.

  14. Bring back the titles on comments

    When I insert or replace or add, I want it to say in the Comments box that this particular task is being done, as it used to. When I have deleted something, nothing at all appears in the box except an ambiguous icon. How is the person reading the comment supposed to know what was done?

  15. Comment dialogue bug

    Since the latest update (running Adobe Acrobat Pro V2019.008.20074) adding comments (drawing lines, connected lines or rectangles) randomly causes the comment dialog box to appear for those markups. This was not a problem before the update. Upon opening the document, several dialog "bubbles" appear on the side of the document. They disappear as soon as one opens the comment pane. This is clearly a bug. Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.
    Expected result: no dialog box, just display comments created.
    Observed result: random dialog boxes are added, even though not added by user.

  16. The new version has reduced rather than increased my functionality. I can no longer draw red boxes around particularly important passages.

  17. Need to show all the comments in column, not just name of commenter

    Each new release you make takes away from my productivity!

    1. The new version of Acrobat Pro shows the right col. Comment list by name of commenter, but I need to see the entire list of the marked comments/changes. This function seems to have disappeared with the recent release. The comment col. as a scroll list view showing all corrections/changes is also a great checklist to make sure all client and manager changes have been made. I review and proofread many, many PDFs each day and it's very frustrating to have to open each comment one-by-one.
    2. Each opened comment…

  18. Highlight Text Automatically Change to Cursor Every time after I Highlighted an Item

    Every time I clicked on Highlight Text and highlighted something in the PDF, the highlight text pen automatically changed to the cursor, so that I can only highlight for one time and then I have to click on the highlight text pen before I highlight another item. That is, I cannot highlight the PDF consecutively. This is SO BAD.

  19. Acrobat text-edit comment functionality improvements needed

    Three problems with the new update on Acrobat, all relating to text-edit comments. 1) Underline, strikethrough, replace, and insert are now represented only by arcane symbols in the comment pane. Before, there used to be the actual words "underline", "strikethrough", "replace", or "insert." Such text labels are gone, and they don't even appear with a mouse-over. This is awful. I work a lot with clients who are less familiar with Acrobat comment functionality, and this only makes it less clear for them. Bring back the text labels for the comment pane entries. 2) You know not everyone uses Acrobat in…
