  1. 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

    • TO: Adobe Acrobat Pro and Edit .Pdf Team: Please, please, please - you must make the edit .pdf tool much more user friendly. Terrible for

      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…

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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?

            • 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.

                • Drawing basic shapes in Edit PDF view

                  Can we please have the ability to draw real shapes (rectangles,circles, etc) in the Edit PDF view? I know that we can draw these shapes in the Comment view but it's not good enough - doing it that way makes it impossible to adjust certain aspects of the shapes (like, "Send to Back" or "Bring to Front" - those options do not exist in the Comments view, but when you go to the Edit PDF view, shapes that were drawn in the Comments view are untouchable. They are always on Top and obscure anything else that is in the PDF…

                  • 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.

                    • Requests

                      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.

                      • Stop text boxes from combining

                        PLEASE fix so text boxes stop combining. I KNOW Acrobat is not an "editiing" app but I have to make contact sheets from multiple products and sources from Adobe Bridge. Then the client needs a couple changes, or we need to update an area on the contact sheet ONLY. Constantly have to fight to redo text. Not editable in other apps - Illustrator can only open one page at a time. Can't edit PDF in Indesign. Can't edit in Word. These are NATIVE pdf's from Bridge. Thank you.

                        • 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.

                            I used to be able to have thumbnails show up every time I open a .pdf. I open very large file all the time, so it's very nice to be able to set thumbnails to be visible as a default instead of having to request it with each new document

                            • BUG REPORT - Cannot Find or Create Font - "GHWQWB+Tahoma"

                              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!

                                  • Activate advanced features in OpenType fonts

                                    I bought a font that resembles real handwriting, and in order to activate the alternate characters (i.e. type 444 and each 4 looks slightly different), it requires advanced OpenType font settings. MS Word has this, but Adobe Acrobat does not. I believe Indesign does. It would be helpful to have this feature in Acrobat Pro.

                                      • Help!! Now!! Need to fix this pdf and change some text inside of a box on the pdf.

                                        I need to fix some text inside of a box on a simple scanned PDF, but my cursor will not place itself inside the box to make edits. Why? It used to on this particular PDF. For the past several years all was easy to edit inside of this box, or outlined area. I can edit everything else on the form except what's inside this box area. Help!

                                        • 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.
