  1. audio record

    As of now there is option to add existing audio file into PDF as rich media format insert in windows acrobat pro DC. But there is no option to add new audio recording directly from acrobat pdf. Please add this option as it will be useful when we are taking notes during lecture, we can record the audio of profession and insert it directly to that page. this helps avoiding recording audio externally and then insert into pdf.

  2. Changing Default Tools on new menu

    I like the quick-access to the Tools in Acrobat, but please allow us to select WHICH 4 tools we see. The defaults are Create PDF, Export PDF, Fill&Sign, and Protect, but in my workflow, I almost never use these tools. I use Edit PDF, Combine Files, Organize Pages, and Prepare Form daily, and would very much like to have these on my front page.
    Also, I have the Mobile app already. How do I get rid of the ad asking me to download it?

  3. Update Features Optional

    I understand that some new features come from users that want these features however making them mandatory for everyone is not great.

    It would be great if Adobe got smart about the Updates and had a pop up that could be accessed any time after an update which allowed a user to switch new features either on or off. That way we the user can control how the software works and if done correctly Adobe could build it so they get reports back and even feed back on why something is switched off or on to enhance the software in…

  5. Page Numbers Does Not Update While Scrolling

  6. The Acrobat DC “save as PDF” interface has been scrambled

    My computer system is MacOS 10.14.4, Acrobat version is DC (2019.020.20099). After adding fonts to macOS FontBook, the Acrobat DC “save as PDF” interface has been scrambled.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting the issue to us. Can you please provide some more details :

    1. What font did you add via macOS font book?
    2. Do you see this scrambled interface only on save dialog? Can you please go to Home / My computer/ Document Cloud/ Add an Account section on the left hand rail and let us know if you observe the same issue on these screens.

    Regards,
    Sandeep Grover

  7. Option to Hide Bookmarks Panel for all PDFs

    Using: Acrobat Pro DC

    Request: Ability to set a global setting that hides the bookmarks panel whenever a new PDF is opened, as opposed to having to navigate to the initial view settings for each file and then save it.

    Reason: I open a lot of PDF files from emails, as I'm sure thousands of other people do, with no intention of saving it in that instance. Or files from the internet, again with no intention of saving it. This is to VIEW the file and find content relevant to the task in hand. Having the bookmarks panel occupy a…

  8. Permanently Add Tool to Tool Panel

    I use the Accessibility tools every single day.

    However, I have to manually re-add it to the tool panel each time that I log on, unless I just leave the computer on and locked (and IT does not run an auto-patch and restarts my computer without asking).

    ter locked.

    Is there a way to set it add a tool permanently to the tool panel on a single computer (as with previous versions of Acrobat Pro)?

    Thanks.

  9. Open new doument moves app window

    Every time I open a PDF the Acrobat window moves and resized. I have "restore last setting" unchecked. Very annoying when I'm editing other files from PDF markup and have to keep moving and resizing the Acrobat window, even if other pdf files are open in tabs and view has been set.

  10. Move menubar to titlebar or remove it completely and make it some buttons in toolbar

    Move the menu bar to title bar like Photoshop and stop wasting screen space. I always have to press F9 after opening each PDF file because I rarely use menus and they insist to be there to waste my time and space.

  11. preferences should open in a tab and be searchable

    preferences window is old and rusty. the fun part is when I select a category from left the window resizes and sometimes I have to move it to see the hidden settings out of the screen portion. it reminds me of the old apps in late 90s! you have to update it to open in a tab like internet browsers and be searchable.

  12. Remove hang time when opening small document on $4000AUD PC

    I'd rather the document not open fully until Acrobat DC Pro sorts itself out. The hang time in today's fast pace world eats away at me... Please fix!

  13. Make the menu/tool system easier to use.

    Please put some thought into the menu and tool system. Try to develop a logical interface with the goal of making it easy to use. Basically dump what you have now and either go back to earlier versions or start over. Consider hiring someone to manage the process.

  14. Default hide navigation pane

    If I can't figure out a way to stop getting a massive bookmarks pane EVERY SINGLE TIME I open any file I am going to set my computer on fire.

    The Wizard won't do it. Edit > Preferences > Restore last view setting when reopening documents won't do it. I can't mess with the system registry on a work computer so that won't do it. Do not tell me to tick the restore last view setting box.

    Look at this bookmarks pane. Look at it.

  15. Adobe DC terrible design of program

    The new install of Adobe DC is terrible. There was no reason to change the user interface and make the program so MAC Like.

    The changes to the interface are causing our agency to incur tremendous down time and loss of productivity. Nothing about the new user interface is intuitive or helpful!

    Is there any way to reinitiate the older menu driven interface? We can not even utilize the certificate signing that was used regularly with the previous version of Adobe Acrobat.

  16. Screen resolution

    Hello,

    I'm using the following setup:
    Windows 10 Home 64bit, version 1803 (OS Build 17134.706)
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, version 2019.010.20099
    Two monitors, same resolution 1920*1200

    One of my monitor has scaling enabled through Windows (display settings -> Scale and layout -> 125%). This will change the size of text, apps and other items.

    When I open a PDF in one of my monitor and I drag this PDF to my other monitor (which has scaling on), the ruler changes (see screenshot). But when I measure using Measuring tool the correct values will be shown. In my opinion, this should…

  19. Drag and Drop doesn't update page thumbnails

    When dragging a PDF or Word document into the page thumbnails to add that document to the existing PDF document, the thumbnails occasionally fail to refresh, and show the incorrect page thumbnails.

    E.g. If I drag a 3 page document file into page 50 of a 100 page PDF, the thumbnails will show the previous pages 50-52 until you close the thumbnail view and re-open it or scroll the thumbnail view past those pages forcing a refresh.

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro version 2017.011.30120

  20. Acrobat program windows should be minimize itself after closing the last opened PDF file

    I miss the feature that the Acrobat program window automatically minimized after closing the last opened PDF document. At the moment the Acrobat program window always stays open and hides the desktop.
    I know of various keyboard shortcuts like WIN + Space + N or WIN + M, but the Acrobat program window should automatically minimize itself without additional action if the last opened PDF file was closed.
    A setting in the Acrobat preferences for this behavior would also be conceivable and desirable.
