  1. Option to turn off automatic optical character recognition (OCR) completely, not for each individual document.

    Every time I would like to edit a document, like insert a text line, the OCR runs and stops me from being able to work on my PDF until it is finished. When I have many pages on a document, it takes a long time and often doesn't recognise the text properly. So I don't want this running automatically. I need an option to turn it off or be able to turn it on for an individual document.

  2. When I Request e-signature an editable PDF form, the format and all my fillable forms are gone.

    I need to print the filled-up form initially and then open the printed PDF and then do the e-signature thing. It takes extra steps.

    Hopefully, you guys can fix this quick bug and so we can go directly to e-signature directly from the editable form.

  3. I work in the construction industry and use the edit and search features on a daily basis. Typically, I am adding text, using E-Sign, combining files, and exporting to excel.

    The new version of Adobe Acrobat is nothing short of a headache:
    - Auto-recognizes text boxes that are not there
    - Will divide pages into a grid for no reason
    - Will recognize text as an image
    - No longer recognizes text with ease
    - You cannot add a textbox to an area on the page where a "text box" is auto-recognized (when there actually isn't one there)
    - Can…

  4. The "old Adobe" version used to allow one to minimize the Edit / Comment panes while keeping the tool used active.

    The "new Adobe" edit pane opens up every time I try to add text covering half the document making it extremely difficult to edit my document when I can't see half of it and need multiple windows open on 1 screen.

    The Toolbar pane used is now on the side instead of locked at the top increasing the width of the document even more. The options are left side or right side.

    When clicking on the text one has…

  5. I'm using Hebrew right-to-left regulary.
    I'm trying now to edit an English form with English letters, and it is so difficult. The Section's number jumps from left to right, It is so difficult to allign it. So I had to type it all again in word. THE WORST PDF APPLICATION EVER BEEN USED BY ME

  6. I work with architectural drawings and I need to mark them up. Since walls and many other items in a building are not in a 0, 90, 180 , or 270 degree orientation, the objects must be rotated to conform to the drawing object's angle. Please add this functionality as soon as possible. My only workaround is to print the large format drawing mark it up, scan it and send it back.

  7. After the most recent update a few days ago, there are 4 tabs at the top: All tools, Edit, Convert, and Sign.

    When I click on the Edit tab, the right hand menu area is blank. No edit tools are displayed.

    I have added the "Add text" feature to the floating shortcuts tool bar that came with the update. However, when I click it to add text, the left hand area is blank with none of the options to do things like select font size displayed, and I can't add these to the shortcuts bar, so most features are unusable…

  8. Simply searching for a word in a 450 page document freezes up DC for 20-30 seconds in the new interface. This new interface is junk. I remember when you could get stuff done in Acrobat and it was this amazing tool. Now it's like Adobe doesn't care about UX, but would rather try to create something that's stylish above all. Stop trying to be Apple! No wonder the secondary PDF market is picking up steam. Am happily going back to the old interface.

  10. I apply watermarks to dozens of documents each day.

    In the previous Acrobat Pro I was able to add a specific watermark to my tool bar for one click application of the watermark to a file and then save it.

    This feature was not carried over to the new Acrobat Pro and only allows the watermark main menu to be added to the toolbar. I then have to search for the watermark in a dropdown, apply it and save the file.

    The one click watermark function needs to be added back to the new Pro.

    Or even better, allow several…

  12. Please revert back to the old layout. Trying to add comments is just painful. I used to be able to quickly select the tools to delete, change and replace, add comments and highlight with ease.

    Now everything requires an extra step which is just slowing the process. And now it looks like I can no longer cross text out (without replacing). Please revert back. It was the perfect tool before. Now it's just awkward and cumbersome and it's leaving me so frustrated.

  13. Problem:
    I frequently use the functions of "edit PDF", adding text boxes, highlighting and reorganizing pages. When I did many changes to a document(?), Adobe always pop up an error message of "The document could not be saved. There was a problem reading this document (14)" when I tried to save the documents. Interestingly, this error message did not affect me saving the document, so I've been ignoring it for more than half a year. However, recently, when I reopen those saved documents, there are many text disappeared.

    Actions taken:
    I have tried different measures to solve this, including checking…

  14. Can't add text today using PDF edit. I'm not going to lie - this new version of Acrobat is horrible. Can we backtrack to the old version that actually worked?

  15. Please bring back the vertical scroll bar. It is impossible to navigate easily without it. Our team regularly has to move back and forth through pdfs that are over 200 pages long. I now have to use Preview to do that because the new version of Acrobat has no vertical scrollbar. Why remove it?

  16. We are a design firm and site plans come in where the building orientation isn't in landscape or portrait mode since not all roads are in grid pattern. It's crazy that we pay thousands for Adobe and it can't do custom rotate. ADD CUSTOM ROTATE ANGLE TO ADOBE ACROBAT.

  18. It's getting horrible. how can you take a product that works and just continue to destroy it. It looks like revisions are made by amateur programmers. Stop destroying a good product and make it work right. You are going to lose all of your customers.

  19. Avant la dernière MAJ du mois de mai 2024, adobe fonctionnait parfaitement, il détectait correctement les pages à modifier, les encadrés etc, depuis cette mise à jour je ne peux plus modifier mes textes ou cadres correctement, j'ai des images noires quand je clique ; c'est franchement usant de perdre mon temps à ce point vu le prix de la licence pro !!

  20. When you close an unsaved edited PDF or Acrobat itself, you only get the options "save" (curretn file name) & "discard", after which the document will close imediately.
    It would be very helpfull if there is an option to cancel closing and continue editing, or choose "save as" to save the changed PDF with an other file name.
