  1. Add background color to text boxes

    Add a color background to new text boxes ie. a white background so that text placed over other text or images effectively erases what the text box is placed over allowing new text to be seen clearly.

  2. Add robust spell checker

    Add spell checking capability for the entire content in a pdf -- your competition (BlueBeam) offers this functionality. Adobe is losing ground by not offering spell check only in forms and fields.

    Even if you just offer spelling markup (squiggly lines under unrecognized words) that would be helpful.

  3. Print-Append

    Its understood that a Print-Append feature would allow printing directly to a file without saving having to save the file first (as a separate file). The Print-Append feature would be a great advantage and essential to our company, and we are requesting that this be seriously considered:

    1. We are wishing for the soon plans for this feature to be implemented?
    2. Alternately could there be an add-in option of sorts created for this feature?

  4. Font list incomplete for editing text. Styles missing

    Acrobat's Font menu does not show all styles of installed fonts, particularly with Mac .ttc fonts (e.g. Helvetica Neue, Avenir) making it impossible to do spot edits.

  5. Arabic RTL support for MacOS

    Arabic right-to-left is currently supported on Windows, but not on Mac, and I have forms that Mac users currently cannot use because of this. Please consider working on Mac compatibility for Arabic and other right-to-left languages. Thank you!

  6. Prevent Comment Pane from Opening when selecting the Comment Tool

    Please provide an option to prevent the Comment Pane from opening whenever you select the Comment Tool. I make comments all the time on PDF's and never required the pane to be open.

  7. App crashes when editing hyperlink

    I can replicate behavior. There are comments on certain hyperlinks in a document. With the comment selected, if I click on the hyperlink and then on edit, whenever I click on Actions, the app crashes. If I edit the link without the comment selected, app works OK.

    Can no longer add an image to a PDF file, this is happening on multiple computers. All are running Pro DC version 2021.005.20060 with Windows 10 ver 1909. Get an unknown error when trying to add an image. This stopped working recently.

  10. [BUG] Adobe Acrobat has encountered an unknown error

    We have an application that generates PDF files using Quick Report library.
    Those PDFs cannot be edited in Adobe Acrobat 2020 (Adobe Acrobat has encountered an unknown error) but they can be edited with other PDF tools such as SodaPDF.

    I tried all methods listed in this forum but nothing worked.

    The only solution is to print the PDF using the 'Adobe Printer' and then edit this file.
    It's a simple workaround but quite painful when you have to do it dozens of times per day.

    It would be nice if Adobe could provide a fix for an issue that…

  11. Auto-size the picture when pasting into one document

    When pasting pictures/screenshots, the size of the pic is always exceeding the boundary of the paper size, but when you are trying to resize it, Acrobat can auto-fit into the width/height of the picture corresponding to the page size. I recommend resizing the picture in the first place when initially pasting it to the doc, that would save a lot of time.

  12. Preview Fonts in Drop-down List

    I've just started using Adobe Acrobat DC, continuous release. I noticed when editing a document, if I select the drop down list of fonts, all of them show the exact same font type in the list. This is really unhelpful, because I don't know what any will look like.

    This leaves me with two options. One, choose a font, see what it looks like, and keep it; or if I don't like it go back, click the drop down list, and re-scroll all the way through to find the next font in line and try that one. If I don't…

  13. Viewing Bates numbering

    I have used your products for years and rely on Bates numbering often. I can not understand the way you designed the viewing in Bates before hitting ok. I can only see the top of my form or the bottom. Why on earth can't we see the complete sheet?

  18. No way to password protect a PDF from editing BUT allow annotations on mobile devices (Samsung tablet, Ipad etc.)

    I need to be able to protect PDFs on my Mac from editing BUT allow annotations. We have tried taking the following steps...

    We saved a Word doc as pdf on Mac, uploaded it to Adobe Pro, in 'allow changes' chose commenting, filling in form fields, and signing existing signature fields.

    We then sent the protected pdf to various devices.

    Recipients were prompted to enter a password in order to annotate on Samsung Tablet and Ipad.

    Surely, allowing annotation while protecting the pdf from editing is much in demand these days, in particular in the education field where students are…

  19. BUG: optimizing file changes page labels

    Over the past several months, we have been having issues with page labeling. We combine single pdf's to one file, change the page labels as needed with new name, save, and when we optimize the file the page labeling changes. So, if I have pages 1-25, page 26 new page label (ie insert1), then the next page shows up as page 26 and not 27 as it was in file before we optimized. We also change pages in the back for Covers, ie C3 and C4. When the file optimizes, the page number switches C4 with C3 and C4 to…

  20. Adding/Headers and Footers

    Please consider combining the Page Number and date format and Page Range Options into the existing Add Header Footer Window or at least a single pop-up, rather than two separate ones. They reduce the efficiency and accuracy with which the tack can be performed. Do you intend to make your software less efficient and error prone?? Because if so you have succeeded!! CONGRATULATIONS!

    For example, when I need to add page numbers to 61 sets of numerous pages on the footer, that means according to your current set-up with the pop-up for page number and date format, and the second…
