  1. save as

    I only have the option to save. Where's the save as? There's no 'file' drop down menu. I only see Home and Tools. And underneath this there's a save button, but I want a save as button.

  2. 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

  4. Acrobat DC does not release the file even after closing it

    I have just installed the latest Adobe DC from your website. I have pdf files on removable media. I open and close pdf files. Acrobat DC reader does not release the files even after closing them.

    When I try to eject the removable media, Windows says device in use. Unless I shut down Windows, the files are not released. Very frustrating.

  6. "Mark up" PDFs -- not "edit"

    Editing is not really the correct word. For millions of users, we simply want to "mark up" a PDF by, say, underlining a sentence. That was dead easy with Adobe Pro XI. Now seemingly impossible with DC. Constantly get image processing error messages. No customized user toolbars, as with Pro. Basically DC has been over-thought. 99% of users want the basic functionality of Adobe Pro XI.

  8. preset margin controls/crops

    I have a ton of unique one-page documents that I have to crop using the exact same margin control parameters every single time I generate a new one. It's only a temporary crop, but it would be nice to have a way to preset those values so I wouldn't have to enter them every single time I need to crop.

  9. Color Management setting goes from Synchronized to Unsynchronized

    This behavior has been around for some time, but here goes, maybe they will pick this up to fix it.
    Adobe Acrobat Pro on macOS.
    I open Adobe Bridge and choose Color Settings to choose a color setting and synchronize across Adobe apps.
    I open Adobe Acrobat Pro. I choose Preferences and go to Color Management. As expected, it shows "Synchronized..." etc. I choose a different panel in Preferences, and then close it.
    Now, open Adobe Bridge or Acrobat. Now, the Color Settings is Unsynchronized.
    Basically, it looks as though if I ever select and open the Color Management panel…

  10. Bug: Watermark

    I found A BUG where when you save your individual watermark in other units than inches it doesn't save the actual units. When i put in millimeters then save it. It puts the units back to inches. Please can you fix it? Sometimes when you forget to check it, there is watermark in the middle of the page. Thank you

  11. Acrobat blocks editing due to secured document, but no security policies are on document

    When I attempt to edit the document, I receive the following message:
    "This is a secured document. Editing is not permitted."
    When I look at the document's security settings, they are all disabled.

    Tests I have tried:
    - Downloading and testing the same document on another device - could not replicate
    - Downloading and testing a different PDF on this device - could not replicate
    - Re-installing Acrobat on the affected device - no change
    Please see attached the document.
    Specs: Windows 10 on PC

  12. Give back the text box

    I want the framed box back. I put all kinds of status notes on PDFs and with the true Text-Box I could see them when browsing in Explorer.

    Hidden comments or hidden sticky notes are useless for this purpose.

  13. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE fix the ability to merge non-PDFs back into the program

    Until two weeks ago, I had the ability to merge non-pdf files into a pdf. That is no longer the case. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring this back. Having to convert each document into pdf before merging docs is a PAIN IN THE -SS

  15. 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.

  16. Copying Page Sets

    Sometimes I receive a file with a single set of different pages(Let's say 5 pages). My customer wants 31 sets. I'd like to select the five, highlight and right click and chose "Copy as set?", then once I do this, a dialog box comes up and asks, "How many would you like?" I would chose 31 and it would duplicate 31 sets. It would change the page count from 5 pages to 155 pages. Thank you!

  17. When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the layer background transparent

    When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the layer background transparent - this would allow a 'base' CMY' PDF to have multiple K (version) layers added - this would allow both registration and versioning to be verified

  18. When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the background transparent

    When adding layers to a PDF need an option to make the background (of the added layer) transparent - this would allow a base CMY to show through multiple K layers (showing different plate change versions) allowing registration to be verified

  20. Not possible to edit text after saving files with active windows in PDF.

    Not possible to edit text after saving files with active windows in PDF. For example when there is active window where we should write date and then we are adding signature, then field with date is not active anymore and it is not possible to change date with EDIT function either. It is very flustrating!
