  1. Create tickmarks tool box for quick access through keypad

    In other PDF editor programs, there is the ability to customize tickmarks in a toolbox that can then be assigned to a keypad number to be accessed quickly and repeatedly. Creating this functionality would greatly increase the speed in which user can apply those tickmarks in reviewing a document, generating significant efficiency when a large volume of documents require this type of review.

  2. Content editing

    Hi all,

    can any of you tell me how to set Photoshop as the default for opening images from Acrobat Pro DC (macOS Monterey)?

    Whenever I click on an image under "Edit PDF" with the "Edit" tool, the preview is displayed in the "Edit with" submenu. When I say "open with" I can select Photoshop. However, I would like to use Photoshop as the default here so that I don't always have to select the programme under "Open with".

    I had actually remembered that I could set this in the settings under the item "Touch up". Unfortunately, this menu item…

  3. Problem with extracting pages - images are not removed from the target file

    There is a problem with extracting single pages from particular PDF documments. Attaching the test.pdf file.

    Extracting a single page from it (view->tools->Organize Pages->Open and you can do a drag & drop page to windows explorer) we are getting a pdf file with same file size as original but with only one page.
    It seems that its not removing all jpegs from the file.
    Attaching also sample file with extracted one page.

    Files are generated by FPDF library and got a replay on their forum: "That's probably because FPDF uses the same Resources dictionary (containing all images) for all pages"

  4. Assign a command+key shortcut for cropping pages (not an accelerator key)

    A one-key accelerator key (C) exists, but in order to use it, one must activate the whole set, which leads to accidentally starting lots of processes by touching a key by mistake (or by typing a seach term into the Find window too quickly. Acrobat used to have Command+Shift+C for this purpose, but it is not included in the latest version.

  6. 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.

  7. Create a command to permanently discard cropped-out margins from the page in order to reduce file size

    There should be a simple command to discard permanently everything outside the cropbox. Currently, the only way to do so is the crop pages and then run OCR. Why? Seems like a simple, useful feature to add.

    In Acrobat DC for Mac version 22.002.20191, after I use 'text' to write in a PDF, I can no longer highlight the preexisting text. To restore that functionality, I have to select 'edit' and then return to 'document'. Please fix this.

  11. Please put an Undo button on the Toolbar

    This software feels so obsolete without an Undo button on the Toolbar while you are trying to edit a document. I already see that there are other posts requesting an Undo button on the toolbar. Let's get with it already please, as we are paying for this software and the current process is really too cumbersome to have to click on a menu, click Undo, then Undo again and then confirm to Undo....

  12. 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. Customize Mapping for Shortcuts

    I know I had this functionality in Adobe in 2014, but I was able to customize the mapping for keyboard shortcuts for tools I frequently used. In 2014 I mapped 'ctrl + shift + x' so that a text comment could be added wherever I clicked. I did turn on single-key accelerators, which is just 'x' as of recently in 2022. I just want to map my own shortcuts so that I can also create a text callout (for example, 'ctrl + shift + y'). I don't see text callout as a single-key accelerator option. I did use the cycle…

  16. 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…

  18. tab name is not updating to save file name

    I used a template file "Invoice template" and have been saving new files with updated names with the "Save As" feature.

    Once I have saved my computer recognizes the file in the folder with the correct name but once I open in AQC the tab still has the "Invoice template" name referenced on the tab and no name for the updated file name.

  19. Requesting Feature for editing Sheet Music on PDF

    I would like to suggest an idea for Adobe Acrobat. The suggestion would be to allow people to insert vector lines and basic shapes to a PDF file. This vector lines and shapes could help us folks that may be looking at sheet music and or make a musical note correction to the sheet music. Also, allow a plug-in to insert musical notes and other music iconography onto a blank PDF file of sheet music. Adobe Acrobat can really be used by the music industry all around the world if they only can see the power and simplicity of using…

  20. Custom Redaction Pattern Not Displaying In Acrobat

    I need to redact driver's license numbers from about 1200 PDF pages in Acrobat DC. There is no redaction pattern for driver's license numbers. I found tutorials on how to add custom redaction patterns. I created an updated version of the program's "SearchRedactPatterns" xml. I uploaded the updated version to replace the xml that was already there using a file path shown in multiple tutorials. There are no error messages associated with the new xml and I see no syntax errors in the coding that would prevent it from working. But the new custom pattern does not display in the…
