  1. make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC

    make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC. Add option for preferences to disable the 'application frame'. This is super annoying as every time you close a pdf you have to press command W on the keyboard twice to close the windows.

    • Add a setting that allows for deletion of the recent files list at the time of exiting the program.

      Created a setting allows for the deletion of the recent files list when exiting Acrobat. The recent files list gives persons the ability to access files without having to go through security and can display private information depending on the naming convention used.

      • Adding Tools to the Tool Bar Process is Just Plain Crazy

        Should be able to drag and drop tools you use often to the customized tool bar at the top of the document. Why does it have to be so hard to do that?

        • Opening Screen

          when opening Acrobat the list of recent files default is distracting and unuseful. Acrobat should open to a blank page as it had done in all previous versions.

          • Moving the tools pane

            When you open a PDF file, the standard screen has the 'tools pane' on the right of the main file-window.
            It would be great if the user interface could be more flexible, that a user could move the 'tools-pane' to the bottom or top of the main file window?
            For example: you could place the remarks in a PDF-file, added by a customer, above or below the page instead of on the right.

            • Mouse pointers have compression artifacts

              Very minor aesthetic issue- mouse pointers have compression artifacts, which is kind of ugly.

              • Thumbnail size reduction in Acrobat

                RE:Acrobat Professional ver. 2017 and DC

                In version 9 I was able to reduce the size of a thumbnail whereby I could view +/- 50 thumbnail pages alongside of a single page document view. According to tech support, this functionality is no longer available. If the only way to see more than +/- 5 thumbnails is to fill the screen with the thumbnail pane, then what is the point of thumbnails at all. I have attached a screen shot to show how I view a document.

                It would be extremely useful to bring back this basic functionality. Given that older…

                • Cannot fix resolution problem because the Apply button isn't visible, due to resolution problem

                  The banner (top of the frame) is too large, as is the Find box when you ctrl+F. When you try to fix this in the properties area, this area is also too large. I am assuming this is making an apply button run off of the visible area of the window. When i try to fix the resolution (from Auto-Detect, which I'm assuming is also part of the problem) to 100% it doesn't fix it when I close the window (which is why I assume there is an "apply" button that I cannot see or use - See Bottom of…

                  • 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.

                    • Extract Pages - WITHOUT thumbnail view!

                      Trying to select which pages to extract by clicking on thumbnails is next to impossible. Whoever thought of this system has never tried to extract multiple non-consecutive pages from a large document - they all look the same when shrunk to 1 inch tall. Can we just extract by highlighting bookmarks?

                      • Find (Cmd+F) Pop-Up Obstructs Document Viewing

                        The "Find" Pop-up on the right-upper corner obstructs document viewing and it's very annoying. Whenever I need to see what's behind that pop-up, I need to esc to close the pop-up and Cmd+F again to commence with search.

                        I'm using the Mac OS version of Acrobat DC.
