  1. Shared file notifications showing when someone is already editing a document

    I am needing a way to have a notification pop up upon entering a document letting me know if someone is already in the pdf and editing. As it stands now, the only notification you get is when you are finished editing and ready to save. At this point neither individuals can save their changes unless someone closes out without saving changes to allow the other to save.

  2. Compare two PDF's by content alone. Ignore page order

    Hi,

    It'd be nice if there's an option that let's us compare the two files even when the page orders of the 2nd pdf does NOT match with the 1st.

    Eg: PDF 1 : Page 1 : 'First alphabets' "a,b,c,b,d,e"

                    Page 2: 'Next alphabets'        "f,g,h,i,j"

    PDF 2: Page 1 : 'Next alphabets' "f,g,h,i,j"
    Page 2 : 'First alphabets' "a,b,c,d,e"

    This options can let us know that the page orders are different but the content matches 100%.

  3. Auto rearrange pages

    Say I have two PDFs with same/almost same content. The 2nd PDF is the revised one but page orders are different due to some reason. Now, if there was an option that compares the two files and rearranges the 2nd PDF's pages exactly like the 1st by comparing titles or line by line content, then I don't have to manually arrange it. It makes it easier to review.

    >> Scenario 1 :
    If the 2nd PDF has 'more' pages than the 1st (the content doesn't exist in 1st), then all pages but these extra pages should be rearranged and these…

  6. Basic editing tool - Delete a small spot on a scanned document

    Sometimes a scanned document may have a few little black spots. Is there no way to simply delete a small unwanted sport or fleck on a document?

  8. Time to "stamp" a document has increased y 100x!!!! - BUG

    Time to "stamp" a document has increased by 100x!!!! Using Acrobat XI we could stamp each page of a 1.2 gig file in 15 minutes. Now with DC it takes 22 hours!!!!

    This is completely unacceptable.

  9. Hindi OCR and text recognition

    Please include Hindi text recognition while editing hindi pdf documents or exporting to MS word or RTF format.

    There is a huge market requirement for this feature and we are struggling with it currently.

  12. Return Acrobat to the easy, elegant program it was and not this stupid, childish UI.

    Why it is impossible to have editing options as they were previously? Can a 'Classic view' be added for those of us older than 5?
    Everything in this new 'charms' based UI is fussy and time-consuming. I've been using Acrobat since its inception and now I'm having to relearn nearly everything. WHY?
    It wasn't broken, so the need to 'fix it' has created a frustrating experience.
