  1. Save As Location should be Last saved location

    The "Save As" function defaulted to "My Documents" the first time it was used after a new installation. Subsequent uses of "Save As" should ve defaulted to the location last used rather to temporary location as it happens currently

    • Full Tools, Menu customisation

      Acrobat DC wastes so much screen space in non-customisable areas - It is common to 'snap' the Acrobat Application to Half-Screen - but doing so hides many menu Tools, but ALWAYS leaves 'Home, Tools, Document & then The Login Name. - These are rarely (never) used.
      Please allow them to be Hidden, Or return Menu/Tool icons to a 'normal' design/style as used in the previous 10 versions of Acrobat.
      'PRO' does not = Tablet user.

      • Bug: Add to an already made selection with the mouse

        If you already have an object selected and need to add to that selection the common universal procedure is to hold down the shift key on the keyboard while clicking the object you want to add to the already made selection. It works fine unless you have the "Output Preview" window open. In that case instead of adding to a selection it creates a new sticky note. You used a universal keyboard/mouse combo for "adding to a selection" to instead create a new sticky note but only when "Output Preview" is open. This needs to be changed to a different…

        • Organize attachments into folders or categories

          We have many attachments to each of our PDF files. It would be really great if the attached files could be organized by folder of category and not alphabetically. Please see attachment for an example.

          • Reopen PDFs Launched in previous sessions on Opening Acrobat/Reader

            A Prereference in Acrobat should be there which loads the last session of opened tabs/pdfs on relaunching. Also could provide options to save/load previous sessions.
            This may be Important to the users who work on several pdfs at a time but wish to retain the opened docs in the next Acrobat session.
            Also Session could be managed to retain even after machine restart and then launching acrobat.

            • If "multiple tabs in one window" option is available in Acrobat Reader then it should be available in the Pro DC classic.

              I mean come on... If the Acrobat Reader the free version has the multiple tabbed pdf's in one window then why doesn't the Acrobat Pro DC have it? It's frustrating.

              I have the classic version 2015.006.30280, which is licensed and bought. Just doesn't make sense to not have the option.

              • Dock Properties Bar

                Through version 9, the properties bar was dock-able. Since X it is not, but it should be. Properties are always useful, it is annoying to have it floating over the document when I have toolbar space at the top of my screen sitting empty and gray and sad. I get that the properties toolbar is context sensitive so it will grow and shrink, but it was in 9 also. Please make all toolbars dockable!

                • get rid of opening screen and make icons smaller on toolbar

                  I have been using Adobe products for 20+ years, and I am very irritated at the direction they are going. Why should I have to wait 1-5 seconds for a "home" screen to open; why do I have to FIND the tools I need, when the last iteration (sidebar tools, easily accessed) was so simple, so quick? And if the window is not full-screen, I have to click to access the icons in the toolbar because they are so large. I am a professional and work on a laptop. If you want to create an iPad-loving version, sell it as…

                    • Be able to show Rulers & Guides by default

                      It would be useful in Preferences to turn on Show Rulers & Guides by Default. At present you have to go to "View / Show/hide / Rulers & Grids" for every new PDF that you open.

                      • Toolbar Cut Copy Paste Problem

                        I am using latest version of Adobe Acrobat DC on Windows 7 64 bit. Everything is by default like I made the only changes at the provided video.

                        The problem is when I highlight any next in the pdf, usually in the previous version of Acrobat the icons for Cut or Copy are going to be "active"(dark grey), when some text is selected and not active icons(white gray), when there is no selection. In the latest version of Acrobat this icons are white gray and not active when the text is selected. For me there is obvious problem between the…

                        • Your GUI sucks...

                          I "accidentally" click on the tool expand-bar on the right about 10 times a day - while attempting to simply use the scroll bar to navigate through the document. Epic FAIL.It confirms to me that your test teams don't really use Acrobat for anything...

                              View 2 sided - the first and last page should always be by themselves (1-page only). That way you get true side-by-side viewing for a two sided document.

                              • restore the Acrobat XI Pro style color icons and two-row toolbars

                                I upgraded from Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, which I liked very much. It worked well and I was able to set up the toolbars, with color icons, the way I liked. I am very disappointed in the Acrobat DC Pro version. It seems that Adobe went back in time (a long way).

                                This new version Adobe Acrobat DC Pro has monochromatic tool icons that all look the same. I am constantly clicking on the wrong icon. Also, there seems to be no way to put the tools on two levels as was possible with Acrobat XI Pro. I can only…

                                • I give up...what a bad piece of software. What planet do you live on ?

                                  After just one frustrating evening of trying to do the simplest of formatting jobs with Acrobat Pro DC, I give up. The interface is completely non-intuituve, help is useless and the support forums are a mash-up of suggestions from several non-compatible versions.

                                  I have used Acrobat in the past, but this version is just plain bad. I want my money back.

                                  • Display navigation pane by default

                                    We still desperately need to be able to show the navigation bar by default. I understand that certain features of it may not be available due to settings in the PDF. I use this program to view 99% of the time and it's a real hassle clicking around every time, to show the thumbnails.

                                    Every rudimentary viewer allows thumbnails to be shown by default and I believe previous versions of Acrobat did as well.

                                    Please allow this navigation pane and the selected tab to be sticky.

                                    • Ability to add more toolbars

                                      It was very cool in early versions that it was possible to add more toolbars. Its annoying that the space is limited for the extra tools I want to add into the tool bar.
                                      I would like to ask for adding the ability to add a new-line/toolbar so all the tools I add can be visible without need to expand a menu by clicking on the dots at the right side.

                                      • Completely kill Acrobat DC - what a piece of junk.

                                        Acrobat DC makes you hunt through a menu and multiple clicks just to pull up each tool. And this is for each single PDF that is opened into the interface. Honestly this is just so bad. I want Acrobat to look exactly the same each time, with all my commenting and other tools lined up in menus on the right side. Every time, when I open any document, so that I can work.

                                        • Design Fail

                                          Massive design fail in adobe DC

                                          Making all of the icons grey may look trendy, but its super hard to distinguish between them. It takes longer to find the icons you are looking for. And how to make two rows of icons????

                                          please fix this in the next update.

                                          Function over fashion!
