  1. I need to be able to erase text and then replace it with other text. For example, I review hundreds of PDF documents each week, many of which I must sign and date. A number of these documents have last year's date. Adobe will not permit me to erase 2023 and replace it with 2024. (This is but one common example of text entries that I would like to be able to erase and, usually, replace.)

  2. It appears to be a bug, but several markups types are not working. They get copied across pages, even when the markup was not set up on that page. Existing markups disappear. If you edit a text block, the whole things disappears while in progress.

  3. The pallet of colours for the highlight could be floated on the screen I was able to paste a highlight in any colour and then change it.
    Now changing the highlight colour is a slow process of opening the colour menu every time.

    1. please fix the ability to zoom in and edit - in prepress we have to use Pitstop to edit PDFs
    2. fix all the crashes that are now happening at random
    3. pitstop and Prinergy plugin drop-down menus sometimes appear blank

    I would imagine that the printing industry is a major part of your Acrobat Pro users - you may want to fully test your product in advance AT PRINTING COMPANIES before your release a broken product (imagine if you bought a car and the dealer said your tires should work and if they happen to fall off - send us a…

  4. The majority of time I use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC I want my text box properties to be Arial, Blue, Bold and in Italics. Every time I select the Add Text tool I have to re-select these properties, it is very redundant and diminishes my productivity. From what I understand Adobe Acrobat used to allow a default to be set to accomplish this that is no longer available. Please bring it back.

  5. Before it was possible in Comments mode to simply copy some text and paste it over text you wanted to replace. Now you must right click, select Add Note to Replace Text, then past the required text into the comment section. This takes so much longer. Usability and productivity has been reduced

  6. This formatting does not give me the option to do "more" in editing to be able to add a bates number to my files. Is this option not included for the windows OS?

  7. Previous version. "Edit" would set cursor in a paragraph of existing text and from there could add to existing text. .......
    "Add Text" would enable placing cursor anywhere on the page and add text. Making it possible to type in any text above or below existing text.
    That is no longer how it works

    1. Topic: bad PDF file handling in worst case situations.
    2. Situation: you open a PDF from a network drive and start to edit, then the network connection gets lost. Several issues might now occur, see below.
    3. Windows 10
    4. It would be expectable that Acrobat can still save the file, because it resides in memory or Acrobat has a cache and can save from there.
    5. What happened: A file has been opened from a network drive, something that's common in companies with many PCs. The first issue was that this approx. 40 MB file had a lot of comments and while scrollin/skipping…

  8. Editing images is difficult now that this hover-over menu pops up on top of the image. It's very annoying and not user friendly

  10. I went to preferences - accessibility and then changed the colours of the text and background (black to white and white to black). It worked in the acrobat app because the colours really did change as I wanted. but then when both saving and exporting the pdf, it still looks the same. I want to view my pdfs in preview, not acrobat. So if this option doesn't actually change the pdf itself but just views it differently in the app, then it is useless.

  11. This has happened in some variety in previous iterations of Acrobat; I went into organize pages and after the first reorder (I dragged page 5 into position 2) 4 pages appeared from a document I had created yesterday. I did no functions to import any items to the current document. I only wanted to delete 2 pages (starting # 2 and 3) and move the last page to be page 2 instead of page 5. The pdf that was inserted into my document wasn't even open.

  12. The upgrade gives an error and has reloaded for 4. I have also tried resetting the computer as well as deleting Adobe and reinstalling it. It still doesn't load though and so I can't edit the desired document.
    Update: The next day. Now it no longer reports an error but stops at 90% and stays there. I left it twice for an hour, but the % didn't change or it didn't load. I also restarted both the program and the computer. Nothing.

  13. On Mac, ctrl-cmd-H is used to highlight text. But when I accidentally typed that sequence in Acrobat, it made both the "quick tool" floating menu AND the "All Tools" panel vanish. Since I didn't know what I'd done to make them vanish, I had no way to bring them back: there is no item anywhere in the Acrobat menu that allows that.

    Fortunately restarting the Acrobat app makes the floating menu reappear. I finally worked out how I was making it vanish and realized that typing ctrl-cmd-H would bring it back. But there should be an option under View-Show/Hide to…

  14. I need the editing tools that have disappeared (strikethrough, text boxes with arrows,etc). These are essential for copy editors and reviewers and they were the reason I bought this program (Acrobat Pr). It is pretty useless to me without these tools!

  15. There is no point to adjusting "Automatically save document changes to temporary file every _ minutes." I have it set to 1 minute, but when Acrobat crashed, it recovered the document I started with over an hour ago-no saves since I started. This happens regularly, regardless if I save local or to Adobe cloud storage.
    If I have to duplicate the time spent compiling my study notes, I might as well go back to physical printouts that save in real time, and scan to make searchable if needed.

  17. Would be nice to be able to highlight words, sentences, or sections while in read mode. Give it a more realistic feel and allow you to read and mark important sections.

  18. When I use the organize pages tool and select odd pages, Acrobat quits. I can select even pages with no issues, so I have no clue what is going on. It happens EVERY TIME.

    I do have the latest version of Enfocus PitStop installed, but I haven't had a chance to uninstall PitStop to see if that is part of the problem.

    I am on Mac OS Sonoma 14.0.
