  1. Allow the Create Link button to appear when you right click text.

    When creating a new text box, there is the option of highlighting the text, right clicking and choosing Create Link. However, this option disappears when highlighting text later on, even text that was created by the author. Please add this option to all highlighted text that is right clicked.

  2. Allow User to set reminder dates for Employee Documents

    For the Desktop verison for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, I believe a nice add-on feature would be a setting for the document if the user wants to set a reminder for that specific document. For example, If a employee's medical card is renewed and expires Jan 1, 2023, I want to be able to open the document in Adobe Acrobat Pro and set a date/time for a reminder for that document. the reminder settings should also include when the reminder should alert the user to that document that needs attention. so 2-3 weeks before Jan 1, 2023. It would remind…

  3. Stop lumping all text boxes/objects together as one big object with no way to separate them

    When I paste a big bullet list into a new .PDF, or save it from a word doc, I go to move some of the bullet points around, only to find that you've made them all the same object. and there's NO WAY to add or remove lines of text or images from a larger object. At all. You have to manually delete it, and copy the image or text, create a new text box, then paste it far enough away so it doesn't again get lumped in with the rest of the stuff on the page.

    How is there…

  4. Let us drag and drop images/text boxes across page lines when editing a .PDF instead of cut/pasting everything.

    Right now, if you select a picture or text box or ANY object while editing, if you want to move that to the next page, you can't just drag and drop it. you have to CUT it, then scroll to the next page, and paste it. What if you have a full clipboard already, and don't want to put this new thing on it, because it'll slow your work down? There's so many reasons to let people do this, and not one good one I can think of to not have it at LEAST be an option to turn on…

  8. This is a sorry alignment bug

    When creating a sort of template I use right align. When I close edit to save which I now have to do, I didn't use to have to, and then open edit it is no longer right aligned and when it try to right align it gets permanently ffffffeddd up. You may have the best OCR on the market but you really should not advertise that fact until you fix some real problems. This is not my first time attempting a post

  9. All pdfs are read-only

    Is there a fix for the read-only bug in which you are unable to save edits to pdfs. Error message reads "The document could not be saved. The file may be a read only or another user may have it open. Please save this document with a different name or in a different folder."

  11. Extract icon in Quick tool stop working

  12. Page Thumbnails Options Menu

    The new "Add a custom page" menu item has been placed on the Page thumbnails Option menu in the former location of "Extract pages." Even though I am aware of this addition, years of muscle memory from quickly processing PDFs has me continually selecting the wrong menu item. It takes up to a minute for the custom page feature to load, only for me to cancel it, and then try to select the Extract pages choice. A feature to add a page should properly be placed within the Insert pages option. If this were done, it would return the option…

  13. tool not installed

    I installed DC and am trying to edit pages and every time I attempt to edit, it says the tool is not installed. Or more features are installing and we will let you know when you can use your program.

    If I installed the program, why are you not providing a complete program? I paid for a subscription, why are you failing to provide the complete tool set?

  14. Add a single-command function to create new layers for all pages in the same pdf file

    ask for one single command to create new layer(s) on all pages for note taking purposes. easy to toggle between showing and hiding the notes.

    Now users can only create new layer page by page by "importing layers" from files. Adobe should bring in the similar function available in Photoshop which allow users to create a blank layer(s) for all pages of a pdf file in a single command, and let users to enter notes, comments or other annotations on the selected layers. readers can then switch the layer between visible and hiding depending on the use scenario.

  15. Find the selected geometry

    In the FIND function, it would be great if I can find a selection. For example if I want to find all the instances of a geometry I selected like an arrow (3 lines geoemtry)

  16. Redacting PDFs

    Acrobat seems to have changed the options when a user tries to Save and there are existing markups on a document to prompt the user to Save&Apply or to Save. The Save&Apply is the default option. It would be helpful if Save was the default option so that users don't accidentally Apply redactions and lose the original version.

    As far as I can tell when Save&Apply is selected, it only saves a version with the applied redactions, rather than the original and the redacted version.

  17. Redacting PDFs

    When you batch apply redactions to a group of PDFs in a folder, it would be great if Acrobat did the work in the background and allowed the user to continue working. Currently, Acrobat opens every document which means that a user cannot continue doing something else.

  18. clipboard functionality

    Just as I can save a signature and insert into the signature field. I would like to be able to save other information (address, phone, fax, etc) and be able to insert into those fields. Essentially you need a clipboard within Adobe to store text that is commonly used.

  19. Allow files embedded in Word files to open when converted to PDF. The embedded file will not open it has to be reattached.

    I have a word o365 file that needs to be converted to PDF. The word file has a pdf embedded inside it. IT opens in the Word file but when i hope the word file that was converted to a pdf the embedded pdf no longer works i have to re-attach it.

  20. Allow bookmark to be permanently visible on the page itself (Stamp?)

    Bookmark visible as a stamp on page itself so that the user can see what the document title is without having to open the bookmarks pane. This should be a toggle on/off capability and be moveable on the page (select which section of the page it appears in default). Might also be helpful if the stamp defaults could be edited for font, size, etc
