  1. Give option to make Hand Tool the default option instead of the Select Tool

    The Select Tool is the default tool. I never use it and have never seen a need to use it. It makes the screen turn blue and wants to select things instead of letting me drag and move around the page to review large documents. I always have to stop what I'm doing and switch to the hand tool. I am opening and managing easily over 100 PDFs a day and having to switch at every new document is frustrating and time consuming. Adding this as an option would save so much time for users that need this as their…

  2. PDF Access - 'Copy Hyperlink' in Context Menu!

    Hello,
    Can we please have 'Copy Hyperlink' made available to Adobe Reader, in the Context Menu for hyperlinks in a PDF? Similar to how Microsoft Office does this, or just about everyone else I find it cumbersome and annoying to not have that.

    For example today I had to log out of my Google account in Firefox to test a hyperlink, in your doc I wanted to open in Chrome grrrrrr....

    Best,
    Justin Reina

  3. More Contrast Acrobat Bookmark Icon - Make the 'ribbon icon' more prominent for the selected page.

    Rather than having the bookmark icon for the selected page 'slightly darker' give it higher contrast for easier navigation - see image

  4. 2 page view dotted line

    When I look at a pdf in 2 page view without "show gap" I get this annoying dashed line down the centre - add an option to remove it because it's ugly and pointless

  6. Advanced search not available unless a document is open

    Previously, you could just open Acrobat and do an advanced search and select a folder to search, without having an actual PDF open. Now, advanced search is greyed out unless you have a doc open, even if you are not going to search the document, but rather a folder. What's the point of making users open a pdf when they don't want to search a single file?

  7. "Get a Link" button has been disabled for Portfolios and is causing a lot of frustration

    The "Get a Link" button has been disabled for Portfolios as of a recent update. Myself and many others in the legal field were using this feature. Also, disabling the "Get a Link" button makes no sense because the " Share with Others" button still works and can cause the same confusion for the person trying to download the portfolio. I understand that you had problems with people having trouble downloading the portfolio, but this attempted fix isn't a good solution. Instead, you should provide more help on the download page, which as of now, just says to download Adobe…

  8. Is there a way to revert back to acrobat 11. This DC is clunky and slow.

    I use ctrl = scroll wheel to scroll and space bar to pan. when i am finished i would like a shortcut...(like ctrl+shft=W) to leave the pdf at the whole page view. I need to be able to review large design plans, markup, and navigate quickly. I can't do this anymore. It use to be so clean and precise. Now its bloated and balooning like a cartoon, and does not seem to function well. If anyone has any secret tips to navigate large pdfs lightning quick while making edits, please let me know.

  9. Make privileged locations visible for End Users in Acrobat DC and Reader DC

    Defining trusted files, folders or hosts while transforming Acrobat via a .mst will ensure to configure the respective locations in the Systems registry and avoids, thats files are shown in protected view while opened from priveleged location. However, these Privileged locations do work as expected, but are not shown in Acrobat itself and are therefore not transparent and comprehensible for endusers. This is causing confusion as End Users want to be aware which locations are considered as Privileged. This will enable endusers to store trusted and commonly used files in these locations and therefore avoids to open them always in…

  10. Make the save button available even if no change to the document

    Part of our workflow is to save pdfs even if there is no change so that it updates the file modified date. Currently we have to make a small undesired change to make save available.

  11. Tab Highlighting

    Having multiple tabs open at time it is hard to correctly organize them into things I already have read, things I need to go back to, or things that I have yet to look at. As a student it would be nice to have and easy way to organize them. My thought is if you could right click on a tab in the header and select a color scheme for it. Right now it only has the option to 'Close Tab' or 'Reopen Closed Tab.' Adding a simple color scheme here with possibly a sort function would allow those of…

  12. Allow the action wizard to "Save a Copy"

    Action Wizard is missing the option to "Save a Copy"
    This would be helpful to recreate files tagged with security labels that have had their fillable fields removed.

  14. Tool buttons should also collapse Tools Pane not just expand

    Tool buttons should also collapse the Tools Pane not just expand it. Thus, you can eliminate the "Close" button. It's more intuitive to expand and collapse from the same button. This behavior already happens with the Navigation Pane buttons.

  17. Match pan/zoom between two tiled windows.

    I work with a lot of floor plans and need to compare them between different documents. What would save me a ton of time is being able to match the pan and zoom actions between two tiles windows. So that when I zoom or pan to an area in one window, the pan/zoom is duplicated in the other window. This should work weather the two windows are of the same document of completely different documents. I realize I would have to have both windows looking at the same area and at roughly the same zoom level before turning this feature…

  19. Zoom Tool: Please add additional default zoom percentages

    Please add additional default zoom percentages for 15" and 17" laptop screens. BACKGROUND: As a college student, I read a lot of academic articles and PDF textbooks. However, I get a little irritated every time that I have to manually type in a zoom percentage of 250% or 270% because the default percentages jump from 200% to 300% (which is TOO much)! I know. It's a menial request. But it would make a HUGE difference for someone in my situation. Thank you!

  20. Acrobat Pro DC on Windows PC - Exit program on final tab close

    For Windows PC, please provide a General Preference Option to close/exit the Acrobat Pro DC program when closing the only open tab/document.

    We open a document then review, save and close it. The program window remains open thus blocking the desktop and forcing us to exit the program manually. While that sounds like a minor inconvenience or inconsequential, in reality its very frustrating and time consuming. We consider it to be a Quality of Life issue that disrupts workflow processes and would like to see it resolved.

    An option to "Minimize window on final document/tab exit and maximize window…
