  1. Roman Numerals (Page Labels) in headers

    I would like the ability to add Roman Numerals in headers. Right now, adding a page number within the Headers and Footers dialog box does not allow me to use Roman Numerals (page labels).

    Thanks.

  2. multi core support adobe acrobat pro DC

    I see that Adobe Acrobat Pro DC only uses one core of the many cores today in PC.

    For example if I use OCR or improving documents, it takes a lot of time. Page per page is done using only one core.

    Please update the software that it uses more cores (like adobe premiere does). This will drastically improve the performance and our efficiency.

  3. Reverse Page order

    My problem is I audit large documents, usually multiple page documents scanned in pdf files. I often find the documents have been scanned in the wrong order ie last page first. Companies employ cheap labour and they do not care of the page order when they are scanning the document or they put it throughs the scanner the wrong way.
    A useful feature would be to have a way to reverse the order of the pages or of a number of pages very simply.
    It appears to be a common problem but I see people talking about writing scripts. I…

  4. BUG : Arabic text with ( Tashkeel ) Editing after PDF file is saved add extra spaces

    Ok here is the issue,

    When I edit PDF file using Arabic text, everything ( to some extent is fine )
    But if I just saved the file, then try to edit it again
    ( i.e. Change font, Change Color, Change size, edit the text it self )

    Arabic letters would just go wrong, attached an image showing the issue.

    I noticed that this only happen if ( Tashkeel ) is used.

    I had the same issue on both Machines : Mac OS & Windows 10.

    Also PDF attached with an example,
    if you just tried to change the Text…

  5. Requests

    Please make it so the fonts are WYSIWIG. It's incredibly frustrating to look at an enormous list of fonts and have no idea what they look like. Also, it would be nice to see Arial in there! Thanks.

  7. Grouping and locking objects

    Add an ability to group/ungroup objects so they can be selected and manipulated together.

    Add an ability to lock/unlock objects and groups so they won't be selected until you command "Unlock all".

    Same as in most vector drawing programs since 1990x!!

  8. Eraser needed

    Acrobat needs an eraser tool, much like the one provided in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. I work with old pdf images of recorded documents dating clear back to the 1800's; these documents have a lot of photographic "static", shadows images left by the camera which took the image photo, and these items need to be erased to give the document better readability. It is hard to describe without watching the process. If you want a demonstration, contact me and you can log into my computer and watch my process.

  10. Acrobat Pro DC - Sometimes Holds Lock on File after closing it

    Hi,

    Arobat Pro DC closes file OK, but sometimes appears to keep the file locked against changes in Windows (Win10, 64bit, fully updated May2020) etc

    Win 10 \ Windows Explorer is prevented from modifying the parent folder name (for example).

    Does not always happen. Closing Acrobat Pro DC appears to release the file (in that it allows changes to the filepath etc using Windows Explorer etc).

    This is similar to issue reported usign Acrobat READER.

    The Windows Preview tab is NOT showing
    (that Win10 bug (?) is a known issue, but relevant here).

    Regards
    L

  11. Calculator Tape

    I used to be able to click on a calculator option, do several calculations, and copy the tape to the pdf, and add notes to the calculations.

    Please Bring it back.

  13. Be able to add text without having entire document going through "edit."

    In older versions we could just add text to a document where needed. Now you have to go to Tools, Edit which then takes the time to recognizes all the text in a document. I frequently add text in all kinds of documents including charts and forms. When it goes to "recognize" the text on the full page, it distorts it to something unuseable. I end up having to open the document in Photoshop - if it will read it since usually it was scanned in first. If it won't, I have to do a screen shot, cut and paste…

  14. Hindi OCR and text recognition

    Please include Hindi text recognition while editing hindi pdf documents or exporting to MS word or RTF format.

    There is a huge market requirement for this feature and we are struggling with it currently.

  15. Bulk Changing of Font Color in Acrobat Pro XI and DC

    As also expressed in a bug report related to the changing of font colors within a PDF file, I would like to see Acrobat Pro XI and DC have the ability to change the font color of all pages - or a specified range of pages - within a given document, in one pass. Right now this process must be laboriously applied, one page at a time.

    This feature would be analogous to the Crop Tool, for instance, which does provide the ability to apply itself to all or to a range of pages within the specified file.

  16. Portfolio PDFs open blank in Protected View

    Steps to reproduce:
    Set Protected View to "All files"
    Fully Close Acrobat
    Open a Portfolio PDF by double clicking on the file.

    Environment:
    Windows 10 Enterprise version 1909
    Adobe Acrobat DC Pro 20.013.20064

    Expected result:
    Portfolio PDF opens without issue. The "enable all features" button appears at the top and can be clicked. The list of files is shown at the top and the document at the bottom. This is observable in version 20.012.20041

    Observed result:
    Acrobat opens with both the list of files and the document completely blank. The "enable all features" button appears, but does nothing when clicked…

  17. FORMAT PAINTER

    The fact that there is no format painter on Adobe is insane. Microsoft has it, google has it, it seems like everyone has it except you. why don't you? It would save so much time. Just put the dang thing.

  18. Splitting double pages in single pages

    There should be an option to split all pages of a document in the middle. For example, when scanning books, a double page always equals one page in PDF. Cropping every page is very cumbersome

  19. Free-hand Pen Tool

    A free-hand pen tool would be in Adobe's best interest. This tool would allow users to mark a PDF with a digital pen of sorts.

    Other document editors that are inferior in many other ways have been winning out with both myself and many other consumers because of the free-hand drawing & annotating capablities.
