  1. Inserting a PNG into acrobat will resize the image

    I want to have an image set at 5.5in by 4.25. I have created that with photoshop. When I move that image that is in my desired size, it will resize into something that I don't want in acrobat. Images going into acrobat shouldn't resize.

    Or let me resize the canvas in Acrobat.

  2. need to disable comments (tool) pane on right side of screen Acrobat pro 2020 for Mac

    the comments(tools) pane pops up constantly while marking up PDF's. This may be a great feature for big teams, however it is a time consuming extra step that is unnecessary (and extremely irritating) for solo users. There is a work around to turn it off for DC but apparently none for acrobat pro 2020 on a Mac, as Adobe tech support took over my screen and couldn't change the setting. Adobe please make a fix for this. Thank you.

  3. Auto-size the picture when pasting into one document

    When pasting pictures/screenshots, the size of the pic is always exceeding the boundary of the paper size, but when you are trying to resize it, Acrobat can auto-fit into the width/height of the picture corresponding to the page size. I recommend resizing the picture in the first place when initially pasting it to the doc, that would save a lot of time.

  5. Add background color to text boxes

    Add a color background to new text boxes ie. a white background so that text placed over other text or images effectively erases what the text box is placed over allowing new text to be seen clearly.

  6. Add robust spell checker

    Add spell checking capability for the entire content in a pdf -- your competition (BlueBeam) offers this functionality. Adobe is losing ground by not offering spell check only in forms and fields.

    Even if you just offer spelling markup (squiggly lines under unrecognized words) that would be helpful.

  9. Regional unit and Spell Check defaults

    Defaults should be based on regional settings in Windows, a few examples:
    A) Adobe PDF printer Page Size: Letter vs A4
    B) Acrobat Preferences > Measuring (3D) > Use default display unit: Inches vs Meters
    C) Acrobat Preferences > Measuring (Geo) > Use default distance unit: Miles vs Kilometers
    D) Acrobat Preferences > Measuring (Geo) > Use default area unit: Square Miles vs Square Kilometers
    E) Acrobat Preferences > Spelling > Dictionaries for Spell Check
    F) Acrobat Preferences > Units & Guides > Page & Ruler Units: Inches vs Millimeters

  11. Create Link should default to NEXT not HELP

    When I add links to a PDF, I do NOT need help EVERY single time I create a link; it would be MUCH more convenient if the default selection were NEXT, not HELP. In this manner, I could use enter to select next, whereas now, when I inadvertently click enter thinking it should be the default, it seems to be common sense - oh, wait, that no longer exists, my bad. I guess never mind, no commonsense, why bother, right?

  13. Wrist watch buffering

    I'm copying text from an old scanned document to a blank PDF in the same work space side by side, for the last few hours I'm unable to work as I'm getting the above. This has been an ongoing thing for as long as I have been using AA DC usually I shut down and reopen and it fixes, but today it's on going. I'm up to date with my version of AA DC.

  16. Removing too many files from Recent deletes checked files

    Advise with a window before deleting the checkmarks for files to remove from recent. Too often while I am selectively removing from recent, I exceed some unknown number and all the checkmarks are removed.

  17. Getting rid of blank pages created by double sided scanning of physical bundles containing double- and single-sided documents

    Electronic bundles created by scanning a physical bundle with double- & single-sided documents tend to have a high proportion of blank pages because the person doing the copying generally finds it easier to scan the whole bundle double sided.
    The blank pages increase the file size and make working on the bundles very annoying.
    Currently the only option is manually removing the blank pages, one at a time and although it solves the problem in the long run it is an immensely irritating chore itself.
    Adobe support on Twitter thought they had a fix using the 'Page is empty' function…

  19. Replacing XMP metadata is NOT absorbed into the PDF document.

    Unsuccessfully tried to change/modify the advanced metadata 'PRODUCER' of a PDF from Acrobat Pro DC. I would not accept the revised xmp file as a replacement.

  20. Number the comments in a PDF document

    It would be a good idea if each comment in a PDF doc would be numbered. I sometimes have to reply comments and it would be helfpful if I could know how many comments remain to reply and/or edit.
