  1. Set Default Font for Edit Tool

    Why can we not set a default font in our editing tool. One already seems to be the default, but I can't change it.

      For Acrobat XI, for the ‘Add Text’ tool under Tools→Content Editing, Minion Pro is the default font and unfortunately this cannot be changed. There are no plans to fix this. We would recommend upgrading to Acrobat DC.

      As a workaround in Acrobat XI, you use ‘Add Text Comment’ tool under “Comment” where you can set a default font. To do this, set the font attributes you want. Then, select the comment where you set these attributes in the Comments List panel, right-click to access the Properties and then choose Make Properties Default from the dialog.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks,
      -amboo

    • Editing Text

      Hi

      I produce this pdf file, so that at a later date i can change the date. I've selected the edit tool in adobe pro and when i start to type in the date i want, the text moves from the bottom of the page to half way up the page. (as you will see from the pdf file attached)

      I am doing this on a windows 7 machine.

      On the other pages i dont have a problem. The pages of pdf are set up the same way, so I'm unclear as to what the problem is with this page.

      • Edit PDF in Adobe Pro DC online

        The online version of Adobe Pro DC needs to have an edit function for existing PDFs. Especially ones that were created in the desktop version of Pro DC. You are unable to continue working on a PDF that you created on the desktop, but need to do an update or edit to that file away from your desktop/office.

        • Spell Checker

          A fully functional spell checker is necessary for Acrobat DC (17.009).

          Frequently I get documents requiring proof-reading and the only option is to export as a DOCX, run a spell checker there and, for every error, go back to DC and either comment the error or correct it myself. Not ideal, to say the least.

          Such functionality would also provide useful features. For example, to check French text has the correct accents or, even, being able to "translate" from US English to British English

          • Where is the ability to "Track Changes"?!

            You are missing a most basic editing feature: The ability to display additions or deletes to text in a pdf, as in Word's "Track Changes". How does a client see my edits to their document? Really! Will this be rectified?

              I just spent the last 2 hours trying to change the margins and the paragraph spacing on a simple document with just 4 pages.

              YOU MUST GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND MAKE YOUR TOOLS MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY TO THE AVERAGE PERSON. UNTIL ADOBE FIGURES OUT HOW TO MAKE THEIR TOOLS MORE USER-FRIENDLY, YOU WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE CUSTOMERS IN THE MEANTIME. GREAT TOOLS AND RESOURCES - awful user-friendly applications. When we spend 2 hours with an Adobe customer support person on chat who cannot even do this simple task with time efficiency, then it is clear to…

              • Can't save a simple change without having to 'save as' and rename the document

                If you go into a saved document and change something you cannot save it you have to save it as a completely separate document. i.e. I edit one line to be italicized and hit save and I get a pop up error that states, "The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.

                1) I am the only user
                2) I created the .pdf document yesterday and did NOT make it read-only.

                • Headers and footers should use document's page labels instead of inventing page labels

                  I want to suggest an improvement to Acrobat Professional:

                  When adding headers or footers to a document, I suggest that the mechanism use the document's page numbers, instead of inventing its own.

                  For example, my document has page numbers A.1 through A.29 followed by B.1 through B.7 followed by C.1 through C.6 ... followed by V.1 through V.11.

                  Right now, it seems that the only way I can get the actual page numbers to accurately appear in the footer is Add 22 different footers. That's an onerous task.

                    • Remove just one header/footer and not others/remove all headers/footers

                      It would be nice to have the ability to remove just one footer instead of removing all headers/footers. For example, I work on large publications and would like to be able to leave the different headers and copyright footers for each chapter in place, but be able to update the page numbers. Currently, when I remove or update a header/footer, it effects ALL headers/footers. There should be a menu option to pick and choose which headers/footers to alter.

                      • Bulk Changing of Font Color in Acrobat Pro XI and DC

                        As also expressed in a bug report related to the changing of font colors within a PDF file, I would like to see Acrobat Pro XI and DC have the ability to change the font color of *all* pages - or a specified range of pages - within a given document, in one pass. Right now this process must be laboriously applied, one page at a time.

                        This feature would be analogous to the Crop Tool, for instance, which does provide the ability to apply itself to all or to a range of pages within the specified file.

                            Please make it so the fonts are WYSIWIG. It's incredibly frustrating to look at an enormous list of fonts and have no idea what they look like. Also, it would be nice to see Arial in there! Thanks.

                              Suddenly, when reopening or trying to 'save as', the text I added comes up in all 'dots' - that's all - dots across each text box. I have to 'edit' each text box changing the font to something else and save it again. This started last week! WHY! It's making me nuts!

                                  • Past in Place / Export and import doc info to an excel sheet.

                                    Paste in Place function. It's nothing new and Acrobat had it til recent versions. I work in a production atmosphere where sometimes we have to add bleed tabs and make minor edits for printing. It's extremely time consuming now to move the tab around and make it line up perfectly. It would be a more efficient program if you added it back in.
                                    Also we used to able to export and import doc info. It would save a tremendous amount of time instead of hand-entering all the info. We sometimes deal with 100's of files to create 1 book.
                                    As…

                                    • Editing pictures - annoying feature

                                      The object you selected uses transparency and might look different in your editing application. Furthermore, the appearance of the page may change in unexpected ways after this object is edited. Do you want to edit this object anyway?

                                      • The program is constantly not responding, after each step I take. It's taking a real long time to do anything!

                                        I keep getting an error that program is not responding. Happens after each step. Recently required to log in again, so I'm not sure what changed.

                                        • Signature feature will not load

                                          When I click to add a signature, it is just stuck saying "Loading" or "Retrieving your Information". Not sure what's up.
