  3. convert fonts to outlines as a simple function

    dear, it is very frustrating to have to convert fonts to outlines through the process of placing watermark and flattening transparency.
    don't you want to add a simple function for converting fonts to outlines?
    thank you very much

  4. Bug: When I go to edit PDF and add web links to a full paged image, the image tilts.

    Bug: When I go to edit PDF and add web links to a full paged image, the image tilts and causes a white line to appear in the bottom right of the page where the image is no longer covering due to the tilt. Also the entire image will look crooked at this point too. I have to go to Edit > Undo to make it go back. This is weird and very annoying and happens every time I use Edit.

  5. Bug: Can not select a color patch to change text color.

    While editing text in a .pdf I try to change the texts color by bringing up the color picker. When I try to change the color by clicking on a color patch nothing happens. I end up using the eye dropper to select a new color.
    This problem started after I upgraded my computer to the new iMac Pro.
    See the attached .png & .jpeg files showing my configuration and the color picker window that I was using.

    Thanks for reporting the issue.
    As a workaround, after clicking on the color patch, you can press enter/return or spacebar to select the color.
    Let us know if it helps.

  6. 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.

    Could you elaborate on the problem you are facing and exact steps to reproduce the problem?

  8. Ability to edit tables on pdf

    I would like to edit a table contained in the body of a pdf; however, it seems possible to only remove from the table. This would be a major time saver!

  10. Eraser needed

    Acrobat needs an eraser tool, much like the one provided in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I work with old pdf images of recorded documents dating clear back to the 1800's; these documents have a lot of photographic "static", shadows images left by the camera which took the image photo, and these items need to be erased to give the document better readability. It is hard to describe without watching the process. If you want a demonstration, contact me and you can log into my computer and watch my process.

  11. There is no way to change the default line spacing of 1.2 to a more useful 1 (single spacing).

    Adobe's default line spacing is set to 1.20, which is uncommon in documents. Single spacing (1.0) would be much more useful. Because I can't change the default, I have to continually change the line spacing from 1.2 to 1, which is annoying and time consuming. Please update the software so that the user can select the default line spacing.

  12. 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…

  14. Automation of watermark placement

    Would like to set up drop-app that would automatically place pre-configured (pdf) watermarks, one for the first page, another on the rest.

  17. Editing pictures annoying pop up window

    Here's an idea...whenever trying to edit a picture and this ANNOYING message pops up:
    "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?"

    A NEW OPTION appears > DO NOT ASK AGAIN FOR EVER AND EVER THRU ETERNITY. THANKS

    Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded your request to the engineering team. They will reach out to you if any more information is needed.

  18. 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?

  19. 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.
