  1. Thumbnail size: set larger default

    It would be really great to open documents with much larger thumbnails, similar to how Apple's Pages software shows them.

    I download a PDF of a daily newspaper, which often has nearly 200 pages. I'm only interested in a couple of sections, so I like to quickly scan the thumbnails.

    * Currently I can increase the thumbnail size, but it's a multi-step process that needs to be repeated several times.

    * Enlarged thumbnails display text in a rough, jagged way, it should be much smoother.

    * When scrolling thumbnails with a mouse, enlarged thumbnails float horizontally in a really annoying…

          • Would like to set start up defaults

            1. Can we set Acrobat so it doesn't go to full screen size every time it starts?
            2. Would love to set default to show new documents to fill page width, rather than full size!

              • Acrobat taskbar icon uses Photoshop icon

                In Windows 10, Acrobat DC's taskbar and start menu shortcut icons randomly switch to using the Photoshop icon. Acrobat DC is the only program that exhibits this problem. The only cure is to follow one of the methods shown in this 2013 forum post: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1113673. Please fix this bug, which still exists in 2017!

                      • Adobe Acrobat DC needs to revert

                        Revert the Acrobat DC UI to be more similar to XI. XI worked much better and I had fewer issues with it, every time I need to do something in DC it takes more steps and I feel like throwing my computer out the window. I have never used profanity like I do when I use Acrobat DC.

                        • VERY HARD TO USE INTERFACE

                          SIMPLIFY THE INTERFACE!! Now you have to know what category the task you want to do is in, under the hidden away TOOLS menu. It's SO CONFUSING unless you use Acrobat every single day - it's NOT AT ALL INTUITIVE like it could or should be. I know you have a ton of features but this is the pits how you've organized it. Please please please rethink this atrocious, "pretty" but useless and cumbersome interface. It's impossible to find anything without clicking through dozens of icons and looking hopelessly around for what you need.

                            Please remove the startup/recent files page. It blocks my desktop and is an unnecessary click to have to close it every time I open a PDF.

                              Along with being able to customise (personalise) the "Quick tools" and change an extraordinary amount of settings in the program preferences, the ability to save the layout of the 'workspace' so-to-say should be possible.
                              In particular, the 'Tools pane' and the 'Navigation pane' - show/hide setting should be persistent.
                              This assists with productivity, and User eXperience.

                                Not sure if it is a Bug, or by design, but I selected to hide the Menu bar, but it keeps soming back every time I load Acrobat DC.
                                Can this be a persistent setting please?

                                      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…

                                      • Acrobat DC issue with external monitors

                                        When connected to a external monitor the acrobat DC doesn't scale. After disconnecting from external monitor the app needs to be closed as it causes issue with reconnection to the external monitor. This is on Mac.

                                        • Remove the Feedback and Learn Adobe Acrobat icons from toolbar

                                          I use Adobe Acrobat DC to create and edit PDFs throughout my work-day. I always try to size the window so that my Quick Tools will show. However, now that the Feedback and Learn Adobe icons are showing in the toolbar, I'd have to make the window larger than needed just to see my Quick Tools. I've searched but have not found any way to remove those two icons from the toolbar. Those options should be in the Help menu, not taking up space in the toolbar (same goes for Home & Tools).
