  1. Transfer Emails from One Cloud to Another

    Download Cloud Migration Tool and export emails from one webmail to another webmail account. Sometimes, users want to migrate emails from one cloud to another cloud due to some requirements. This software is really helpful in performing the migration.No need to transfer complete database of IMAP server as the tool comes with an advanced filter by which users can move only desired folders like Inbox, outbox, drafts, etc. from one IMAP Server to another.

  2. stop the blue pop-ups

    Add to the preferences an option to turn off all tool-tips and tricks pop-pops. it's gotten so bad that I've canceled my personal subscription to adobe but still have to suffer through it for work. Also, fire your marketing team for ever coming up with this stupid idea.

  3. I want a new button to change text contrast....

    I would like among the buttons a simple button that would invert text contrast from black letters under white background to white letters under black background.... This is an option that exists under preferences but there are several cliks until you get through. I would like that users could change contrasts with ony one click. i will explain more in a word file I wil upload....

  4. Interactive PDF functions don't work with Big Sur 11.6.3

    Since the update to Big Sur, the interactive elements no longer work in existing PDFs. It worked and still works on the previous mac system. Pages with interactive elements keep reloading. Rollovers are not visible, etc. I have exhausted all possibilities with adobe support. This needs to be fixed urgently!

  5. Copy text without line breaks

    Copy text in a PDF without line breaks at each visible line. Attachments are: 1) bad copy behavior in Acrobat, 2) proper copy behavior in Mac Preview.

  6. Feature request: Search within multiple OPEN documents

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro ("Continuous Release" version 21.11.20039.0), I understand how to search multiple PDF's, but I want to constrain the search to multiple OPEN PDF's. I don't want to look in ALL the files in a folder, and I prefer not to move the relevant files to a subfolder (although that is the workaround hack I have to use for now).

    You should add a feature that allows the user to search within OPEN documents. Please and thank you

    (User context: I am working on a review article, and citing various published studies. I can't remember which…

  7. Cannot process request when converting PDF to JPG. Adobe pro needed. Poor dialogue box instructions.

    if I click to convert but i need to upgrade my plan to do so. the dialogue box should just say something like "please upgrade to Pro". not "contact support" . this wasted so much time with costumer support and could easily be avoided with a better dialogue box

  8. Application doesn't update title of saved pdf in application thumbnail

    When you load a pdf and save as a different name the thumbnail doesn't update even though the tab does (see images).

    Step1 - Open pdf
    Choose File>Save As (choose a location to save in)
    Step2 - Type a name for the file to be saved as, Click Save.
    Step3 - The main application file name has changed.
    Step4 - When you hover over the application thumbnail it never updates until you close / open the file

  9. Cannot save PDF locally in Acrobat DC when opened from web

    When I open a PDF from Web page, it only lets me save to online storage. The save icon is greyed out. Stop trying to make me use your online storage! We do not pay for Acrobat DC to have you disable basic features like saving an unaltered pdf from my company web page.

  10. Hand tool not staying selected as default

    Hi!

    Somewhere in the latest releases within past 1-2 months, my Acrobat Pro DC lost abiltiy to select Hand tool (Pan tool) as default. My current version is 2021.011.20039.

    It used to remember when I close and open document which tool is selected. Now it always defaults to Selection Tool no matter how many times or which way (i.e. right click -> Pan tool) I choose the Hand tool. I want the Hand tool to be the default.

    It also switches back to Selection tool if I enter the "edit text and images" mode and then exit the mode (not…

  11. Guides not showing in rulers

    Guides do not show in the rulers when you drag them from the ruler. Previous version did show the guides, so when you drag out from the ruler, you can see the exact location in inches on the document.

  14. Disable search look ahead while typing

    I work in a regulatory environment and searching PDFs is increasingly important to find information quickly. Many of the PDFs are large, in the order or 200 pages or more.

    In the current software, Adobe starts to look ahead after 2 or 3 characters are typed. This probably makes sense for a document that is say 10 pages long. But in a 200 page document it stalls the PC and messes up the search, for example if I'm searching for "thermometer" the PC gets stuck collecting all the words "the", "there", and anything else starting with "th" or "the". It's…

  15. Permanently disable "reopen closed PDFs" nag box

    You've been asked to do this for years. MAKE IT HAPPEN finally. I mean come on. It's about time you gave "pro" users pro tools, such as being able to FULLY customize our Acrobat workspace so that amateur annoyances such as this can go away forever. If I want hand holding I'll ask for it.

  16. Resizing the auto stamp and saving it as my default size

    My job requires that I use the auto stamp to bubble all the features on my prints. As this could be any number of features I find the auto stamp very helpful. The only problem is that the stamp is to large for the area I have to place it. This means that I have to spend a lot of time resizing them manually. If I could set a certain size, even if I had to do it for each print, it would make my job quicker and easier. As a Quality Inspector I need to use my time better.

    Acrobat Pro DC 32 Bit, 2021.007.20099

  18. Fluent Icon design for Microsoft Office add-ins on Windows

    The Acrobat section in Microsoft Word's ribbon uses icons that do not match the native design on Windows or Microsoft Office. A new icon set would look nice. It's just a few icons, so it would not be a lot of work.

  19. Ability to see Ruler Placement whilst Dragging

    With Rulers turned on, you can click and hold on the Vertical or Horizontal Ruler and drag down into the document to check where on the document a particular section is - or to line up multiple items etc.. Up until version 2020, when you were dragging your line into place, you could see the line to place it very accurately, but now in 2021 you cannot see the line until you release the mouse button
