  1. Find and Replace option is not up to a standard professional app!

    It would be great if the "Find & Replace" option is more versatile. There should be options to replace ALL, including mathematical symbols. Like we have in MS Word.

  2. Cannot edit PDF after entering password

    Acrobat DC, Windows
    If I open a PDF which I protected myself with a password and I enter the password to temporarily disable the protection, I should be able to edit the PDF the way I want, but I'm not. I cannot mark, not draw anything. I'm forced to save an unprotected copy. This is paradox and stupid!

  4. Unable to uncheck headers and footers option after comparing two pdfs.

    This is not an idea. I am not able to uncheck headers and footers option after comparing two pdfs. Because of this I'll have to go through obvious header and footer changes, which is a waste of time.

  6. Table of Contents

    I would like to be able to generate a table of contents using bookmarks within a PDF. While there are some third party plugins that will do this, it would be helpful to have this feature within Acrobat.

  7. Reordering pages

    In the previous version of Adobe Acrobat DC, in Organize Pages, I could select a thumbnail and move the page to a new location. What happened to that feature? I am beside myself as I used that feature ALL THE TIME!

    PLEASE BRING IT BACK or tell me how to move pages now that it is gone. I don't have a select page range option which I saw on different forums. WHAT AM I MISSING

  8. Quality settings for convert colors

    Qualitiy of the PDF is visibly reduced after color conversion, vectors get lost and are obviously converted to pixels.

    All in all the quality after conversion is unfortunately lousy.
    I need to convert the documents via Photoshop to get acceptable output. Although vectors get rastered i can archieve descent printing quality with this methos. This should be able in Acrobat directly.

  9. PDF File not Initially Attaching or Uploading with Edits

    Coming across an issue with Adobe PDF recently, where, when I edit a plan or remove pages in Adobe PDF, save it, close the document, then try to email it. It is retaining the original features of the plans, rather than the edited features for some time. Then after some time has passed it will attach with the edited features of the document.

    This has happened twice in the last week, never had this occurrence prior.

    Steps:
    1) Open Document
    2) Save As Document as New File
    3) Remove Pages or Edit Pages
    4) Save File
    5) Close File in…

  10. Have Layout Grid automatically evenly divide image into specified number of subdivisions.

    It would be so helpful if Acrobat could do the math and overlay a Layout Grid with a particular number of subdivisions. Instead, currently, the user has to open preferences and put in the exact size of the subdivisions which is tricky when images are not whole number sizes.

  12. Change Magnifying Glass icon to represent enlarge/reduce, not Find.

    Why is the magnifying glass icon in Acrobat DC not consistent with your other products? Instead of representing 'Find', it should represent 'Zoom'. Very confusing, especially when on deadline.

  14. BUG: Your text box text formating tool covers up document. Please move it OUT OF THE WINDOW. You keep reducing Acrobat's functionality.

    Please stop floating menus over document content. This covers up important information. Your most recent flop: When adding a text box, the font menu covers up the same box and one cannot edit it. Stop this nonsense. Acrobat keeps deteriorating with each "upgrade" since 2005. If you attend a entry level web programming class at a good university, you can learn how to design efficient user interfaces. Tell that your incopmetent manager.

  15. EDIT function as single feature I can purchase

    Would love to see the edit functionality as an a-la-cart feature that I can purchase. I prefer not to purchase the entire Pro DC or Standard DC package b/c I don't need any of the other features that come with the plan.

  16. delete a page in adobe

    I want to be able to simply delete open my pdfs and if I dont like the first page, delete it while I am looking at it and it simply pulls the second page to the top of the list. Is this not possible?? I know I can go to Organize Pages and delete from there, BUT I cant see the pdf. It shrinks them all down so I cant tell which one I want/need to delete!!

  17. Overwrite PDF on SharePoint Online

    Our organization uses SharePoint Online provided through Office 365 hosting. SharePoint is the primary location to store files.

    It's possible to use Acrobat to open documents from SharePoint, edit them and save those changes back to the SharePoint server.

    If we open a new PDF with Acrobat, then attempt to save over an existing file on our SharePoint server, we encounter the following error:

    Adobe Acrobat could not access the network. Please verify your computer's network connection and try again.

    There are workarounds to this problem, but it would be useful to our users if Acrobat would simply save the…

  18. Shrinking file size of Uber receipts results in error

    On Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1803, Build 17134.523
    Acrobat Pro DC, Version 2019.010.20069

    Normally, to shrink files before sending them out, I go to File -> Print -> Properties -> Default Settings -> and select "Smallest File Size." This works fine until I have an Uber receipt in my list of files. During the process of Acrobat shrinking the file, I get the error message that is attached below. I've also attached the specific type of Uber receipt that results in the error. I haven't had this issue with any other type of file.

  19. Edit text in PDF is worse in last version

    I’m using Acrobat DC but I came from Acrobat Pro 6/7. Editing text in PDF on Acrobat 6/7 was almost perfect. On Acrobat DC working on same PDF files, is unworthy of a commercial product. Even editing a single character broke layout completely on DC. Same file on Acrobat 6/7 I could replace entire paragraphs without an issue. Even free apps perform better than DC on my files.

    Btw, Word exporting is almost perfect and I can edit files as I want. But you should improve features, not destroy them.

    I just spent the last 2 hours trying to change the margins and the paragraph spacing on a simple document with just 4 pages.

    YOU MUST GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND MAKE YOUR TOOLS MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY TO THE AVERAGE PERSON. UNTIL ADOBE FIGURES OUT HOW TO MAKE THEIR TOOLS MORE USER-FRIENDLY, YOU WILL CONTINUE TO LOSE CUSTOMERS IN THE MEANTIME. GREAT TOOLS AND RESOURCES - awful user-friendly applications. When we spend 2 hours with an Adobe customer support person on chat who cannot even do this simple task with time efficiency, then it is clear to…
