  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Time saving toolbars

        Give us more useful Toolbar with plenty of stuff - must make endless useless clicks to access simple things. Just to Open a page needs 2 clicks! This wastes time. Hover over text that fan open files would help.

        This is a terrible product to use - thank goodness for the free stuff Foxit and PDF Creator. Not user friendly and pro-production at all.

        • 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.

          • Remove tools sidebar selector, or make it an option, or an option to move it to the top or the bottom

            The tool sidebar is too close to the scroll bar, and make it difficult to use and select the scroll bar, which is almost always used. Make the position and/or the visibility of the tools sidebar a preference, since this redundant control is available using many other existing ways. This is the must frustrating, duplicative, and unusually located user control I have seen in many years.

              • 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!

                • 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.

                  • More user friendly arrangement of Quick Tools area

                    I have just installed the latest "Acrobat Standard DC", and I'm disappointed to find that still the way in which you have to personalise the "Quick Tools" area is not user friendly.
                    Apart from having a mandatory set of icons on the left (I can't see an easy way of removing them), the way you have to add / remove icons is annoying - right-clicking on the quick tools bar then selecting or deselecting an item to have the menu disappear so you have to right-click and find the item again and again...! Then not being able to change the…

                    • Tool bars in acrobat Pro DC

                      DC Pro is very flash with some nice fearures. However, It is extremely frsutrating that it is not possible to open more than one tool bar at a time. For example - it is not unusual to want to edit AND comment - as this requires two tool bars for access to the different tools, there is a slow and annoying requirement to close and open tool bars when trying to edit and comment on work . Please consider reviewing. This was so much more efficient in Acrobat 10. thanks

                      • Inherit Zoom setting for all bookmarks (Court requirements for filing electronic documents)

                        The standard setting for a bookmark is Fit Width. The ability to change that to Inherit Zoom or other setting is necessary as the Courts require bookmarked documents with Inherit Zoom setting. It takes 8 clicks per bookmark to change this. There is no way to select all bookmarks and change them all at once or make a permanent setting. I submit Administrative Records with hundreds, sometimes thousands of bookmarks and each one of those has to be individually clicked on and changed - x 8 clicks. Very tedious and time consuming.

                              Thanks for reaching out to us for your concerns.

                              Can you please let me know the exact version number of Adobe Acrobat DC that your are working on ?

                              I Tried this at my end and Drag drop in Page Thumbnails panel in a pdf / across pdfs is working fine for me.

                              Also i would request you to kindly share with me a screen recording video of the steps that you are trying to do here ?

                              You can send me that at ajain@adobe.com

                              Thanks

                              • When a PDF is opened within the browser, add a button on the toolbar to open in the full app

                                We need to set PDFs to open in the browser, however, sometimes the user needs to edit these (such as using Fill & Sign). In this case, the user clicks Fill & Sign, and they are told to download the file and open it.

                                It would be far easier if the toolbar that's visible when a user opens a PDF in the browser has a simple button where they could open it in whatever app they had set as the default for PDFs (Acrobat Professional, or Reader). Perhaps a button called "Open in Acrobat"

                                  • Touch bar Design for Macbook

                                    For the new MacBook, touch bar is used. I just want to use Acrobat DC Pro with better comparability.

                                    • Why on earth did you completely change the menu/tool interface on Acrobat?

                                      I absolutely hate the new Acrobat interface. Why on earth was it changed? Why do software developers feel the need to move the gas pedal and steering wheel on each new version of a product? Instead of having easily accessible tools as with the last version of Acrobat, now I have to waste time hunting for them. Did you even consult with users before making this change? I'm definitely not buying any more Adobe products.

                                      • Saving Split Vertical View in Portfolio

                                        Adobe Acrobat DC Pro, Version 2018.009.20050
                                        Windows 10 Professional 64-bit

                                        I save a portfolio in Split Vertical view.
                                        When I reopen the portfolio, it has Split Horizontal view.

                                        Acrobat should remember it was last in Split Vertical view.

                                        Setting Split Vertical view should also be an option in the Properties of a Portfolio PDF.

                                        Thanks

                                        • Black Menu Font

                                          Please consider returning the menu option's drop down menus to black letters. The current very thin grey font, while fashionable, does look very similar to the well established 'grey = unavailable' menu entries. Especially on LCD laptop screens who's hues & tone are affected by screen tilt. Thank you
