  4. Menu/Tools items changing

    Every single week I open up a pdf to edit it and all of my tools are rearranged or removed from the tool bar on the right. I edit pdfs every day and my arrangement only lasts a few days before it suddenly resets. This is super annoying and I would like to know how to get it to stop doing that. I need Organize Pages, Edit PDF and Stamp in the order I have them now, in a few days all of these will be rearranged and Stamp will be removed. I then have to go back into More…

  5. Allow unique tooltips for radio button options to support screen reader accessibility

    When setting tool tips for a radio button in acrobat, it only allows one tool tip for the entire group. When the PDF is displayed as an "image", as it is in some implementations, a screen reader cannot help someone choose which option to select.

    I use text tagging in Acrobat to upload to Adobe Sign. I have to manually adjust every radio button after I upload it because Acrobat does not support unique tool tips per radio option (but Adobe Sign does). This makes the process MUCH more laborious when I could just simply upload it and be done.

  6. Text Editing Color Palette Color Changes Need To Be Permanent

    When text editing a PDF, and the user changes the color of the text font in the color palette, if the user moves to another word, sentence, or paragraph, even next to or on the same page as the original text edit, the color of the color palette reverts the editor back to "black" text. The user then must open the color palette AGAIN and chose the color wanted for subsequent text editing. If there are hundreds of text edits in the PDF, the user is forced to open the color palette hundreds of times to change the text editing…

  7. I want my money back. I needed to edit text. I spent extra money to be able to edit text in a PDf, and it will not even find it the text.

    allow easy selection of each element and the editing of said elements. This program is no where near user friendly and by the way...paying extra for each ability of a program because the company gives it its own name, is completely ridiculous.

  8. Global font formatting

    I would love to have the ability to select an embedded font of your choosing and change its formatting across the entire document. Enfocus PitStop allows you to do global font replacement, but adding the ability to change size, color, and other formatting would be a major time-saver.

    Thanks,
    Brian

  9. Unable to draw shapes

    When reviewing existing PDFs I am unable to draw shapes such as rectangles or lines. I have checked the properties and they show 1pt red color selected. This has not been a problem until recently, I've been able to do this on PDF files for the past 15+ years. I have no problem using the yellow highlighter on text, however, just the shape tools. This problem occurs on most PDFs but not all.

  10. 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.

  11. Side Tools should be default & Menu Dropdown should show options without having to click on open

    Return Menu Tools to the Side where they belong. They are next to useless now. Put actual menu items under the menu drop-downs instead of extra steps to open what should be a drop-down. Sorry - I hate the new look. Hate it. I should not have to navigate away from a page I'm working on in order to get to tools. I should not have to spend half an hour to discover you apparently no longer have this option. Security tools, if still in existence, should be obvious.

  14. Windows 10 Free Drawing with Pen

    I ordered a pen interface device for my PC (Huion 420), excited to be able to handwrite/draw notes on PDFs, in addition to typing notes on them. However, when I have the device plugged in, the free drawing tool stops working. I can click with the mouse or try to draw with the pen/pad device. Nothing shows up. The drawing tool does, however, work with my mouse when I unplug the device. This bug is one of the main features preventing me from using Adobe Acrobat as my primary note-taking software in medical school.

  15. Ability to edit tables on pdf

    I would like to edit a table contained in the body of a pdf; however, it seems possible to only remove from the table. This would be a major time saver!

  16. Editing pictures annoying pop up window

    Here's an idea...whenever trying to edit a picture and this ANNOYING message pops up:
    "The object you selected uses transparency and might look different in your editing application. Furthermore, the appearance of the page may change in unexpected ways after this object is edited. Do you want to edit this object anyway?"

    A NEW OPTION appears > DO NOT ASK AGAIN FOR EVER AND EVER THRU ETERNITY. THANKS

    Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded your request to the engineering team. They will reach out to you if any more information is needed.

  17. text flow to next page

    Why are text edits confined to the current page? The capability to drag a text block to another page is a must-have. Ability to have text flow to the next page is much needed.

  18. Improve the Bates Numbering

    Currently the Bates Numbering option does not allow the user to select folder and subfolders to the window for incorporating Bates Numbering. Users currently have to separate the subfolders onto the desktop and then add each folder separately to the list, once all the folders are added, the functionality can then be operated. However, most of the time users have up to 500 subfolders, so its essential that the subfolders are numbered to that the Bates numbering follows numerically correctly. There are other products that can already do this, so why cant Adobe

  19. "Mark up" PDFs -- not "edit"

    Editing is not really the correct word. For millions of users, we simply want to "mark up" a PDF by, say, underlining a sentence. That was dead easy with Adobe Pro XI. Now seemingly impossible with DC. Constantly get image processing error messages. No customized user toolbars, as with Pro. Basically DC has been over-thought. 99% of users want the basic functionality of Adobe Pro XI.
