  1. Underline feature doesn't hold when creating a web link, reverts to rectangle box after you save.

    Creating a web link inside a pdf and the underline setting works while in the Acrobat app but once you save and open in Mac preview it shows up as a rectangle. Color effect is correct at least. I also tried opening in Chrome and no rectangle or underline although the link feature still works.

  3. DPI drop down

    When converting a PDF it would be nice if 400dpi was an available dpi in the drop down for resolution. We need to convert PDF's to Tiff at 400dpi a lot and we have to manually type it in each time. We are doing this 800+ times per week.

  4. Allow the 'Select all' tool to select all the content of all pages at once

    I've never used a program that can edit documents that doesn't let the user select all content of all pages in the document at once, yet that is how Adobe Acrobat works. it seems impossible to select all the content of a PDF to do something as simple as say change the font size/color etc.

    Please please add this as an additional option, either by making a second repeat of the command select across all pages or making the command work with a different key combination.

    I still can't quite believe I'm writing this request... surely I have it wrong…

  5. Can't save file

    When I review a downloaded file or make changes to a document and go to save the file I get a blank "Save as PDF" window that never completes loading. If I use [ctrl][s] to save the file I get a message that I don't have write privileges for the document. The program worked fine until yesterday.

  6. When attempting edit PDF's, annoying messaging of "optimization" creates Jumbles. Should be a choice. IT messes up all other text

    Our team edit's pdfs for QAQC and whenever we save it jumbles and distorts the document. Really quick messages come up that we can't stop "optimization/fixing to web " etc.ANNOYING

  7. Bug: When scrolling page, highlighted text (after creating a comment) does not display properly

    When scrolling a PDF document with highlighted text using the two-finger gesture on a trackpad, text that is highlighted when creating a Comment does not visually scroll properly. See the attached video. Same problem occurs when using the cursor to scroll the page (not captured in the attached video). Reproduced on several documents

    Steps:
    1. Select text
    2. Bring up contextual menu
    3. Select Highlight Text
    4. Write and post a comment
    5. Scroll page: text creates a visual "ladder" while scrolling and then the page is re-drawn.

  8. Edit PDF: Please allow us to format underline and bold color and type

    Please allow us to select different types of underline (dotted, dashed, double) and to select underline and bold colors. Comparable to Word so I don't have to waste time on page replacements when only 1 word needs editing!

  11. Need full suite of editing tools in Adobe Acrobat DC

    When sending a sharable pdf document to several people so they can edit it we need to have access to all editing tools. Currently, when you open a regular pdf, there are 13 editing tools available. When you open the cloud-based sharable document, there are only 5 tools. We used to be able to have a shareable pdf AND access to all tools but no longer.

  12. Rearange pages

    Making possible to rearange pages in pdf. Making it from page 1 to 182 to 182 - 1. As in japanese books that are read from the "back". So just flip the whole bunch of pages in one click.

  13. Not happy with the update, snapshot copy gone

    For some reason, after many years of working with Acrobat Pro, they removed the photo snap shot option. This was extremely valuable when you just want a section copied and pasted in to a Word document. Now, there is no way of doing it. I now use the Windows SnipIt to get what I want. The other way is to export the page, crop it, then save it. I purchase the full Adobe suite at several hundred dollars a month and this is a good deal breaker. Why purchase the program when the standard free version and SnipIt can do…

  14. Bookmarking for Scandinavian letter 'ä' and 'ö' doesn't work in Finnish version

    It just leaves the spot empty where the 'ä' should be. Same goes for 'ö'. Havent tried 'å'. Tested with two Macs (OS's Monterey and Catalina) It's likely a bug.
    I can add the ä manually to a bookmark but the bookmarking process becomes slower. I think this is because the developers haven't used Finnish keyboard when coding.

  15. Valid PDF cannot be edited in Acrobat

    We’ve recently encountered a set of PDFs that cause errors in Acrobat Pro DC.

    They are provably valid and syntax error free. We’ve checked the PDFs with:

    • Adobe's (DataLogics) PDF checker command line
      No errors reported.

    • Acrobat's pre-flighting
      No errors reported.

    • RUPs (IText)
      No errors reported.

    • Enfocus PitStop
      No errors reported.

    Every other software we've tried can open, read and edit the document without issue.

    Yet when these same PDFs are opened in Acrobat DC Pro, we find that Acrobat shows generic errors when an attempt is made to edit the PDF.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:

    1) Open…

  17. Mark up

    I would like to be able to write on the file. The highlighter tool is chunky and not great for writing sentences. It would be helpful for me to use a pen tool to write sentences in the margin rather than simply type it in.

  18. Text not visible when typing text with Edit PDF

    This only happens on one of the pages within the pdf file. I open Edit pdf; click the Add text button; position my cursor anywhere on the first page of my pdf document; then when I type text I can see the cursor moving as if there is text being typed, but it is not visible. The color is set to black.

    If I do the same process, but on the second page for example, the text is visible.

    Thanks.

  19. inherit zoom default - Hyperlinks within the pdf document pages.

    It would be very Helpful if Adobe would address this issue with being able to set the zoom level of the hyperlinks within the pdf document to inherit zoom as a default setting. As explained by others it is a real pain to have to change all the hyperlinks in the document 1 at a time to accomplish a "inherit zoom" setting in a large pdf document that can have hundreds of hyperlinks. Using inherit zoom is a document standard that is required in many industries, so it is not just a preference that I personally prefer. I must use…
