  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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. 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

  15. Acrobat Standard DC is disappointing in touch mode

    I have been disappointed with Acrobat Standard DC in touch mode. I could find nothing in your support section that helps me with this. In full screen mode, the highlight tool does not operate. (I can only use it to underline or strike through). Page navigation is tough. I have not found an easy way to get back to regular mode once I am in full screen mode. (I have to close the program and open it again.) It seems to me that given the high cost of the software, Adobe should have developed this feature so that it works…

  16. Bug: Part of PDF is blacked-out, especially after using Find

    For several months, regularly (but especially after using Find), a large rectangular block of the PDF document is blacked-out. I have to frequently refresh (using Ctrl-0 or Ctrl-1) to restore the PDF, but that is only a VERY TEMPORARY NON-FIX. THIS IS SUPER ANNOYING! Please fix it, Adobe!

    I use Acrobat Pro DC (v. 2015.006.30482) on a Windows 7 PC.

  17. Resource management (GPUxCPU)

    When using Acrobat DC and Preview concurrently; performance on DC is by far inferior. Scrolling, rendering, etc. is very slow and is evidenced by high CPU usage.

    Upon further inspection, Preview delegates this workload to the GPU and provides a much smoother user experience.

    This suggestion is to implement CPU/GPU resource management to improve user experience.

  18. UI Themes

    There needs to be UI themes that don't use the same scheme as MS Office.

    It is like giving a room a clean look by having the walls, furniture and art be monochrome and close to the same shade. Any designer is going to tell you contrast is important. If everything blends together, it becomes more difficult to see, strains the eyes and thus more difficult to use and rather visually unappealing. It needs contrast between elements to guide the eye, making things more efficient and visually appealing.

    Please give us more themes or tap into all the artists that…

  19. Stop the Acrobat Welcome from Always Opening

    Although no adobe products are set as startup items and the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC general settings have the option to show a start screen as OFF... with each newstart of the computer, the Acrobat Start screen opens.... and every time has to be manually closed.

    This is a bug (although probably intended by Adobe) and needs to be fixed to remove this major annoyance.

    The effect is that Adobe is trying to be an annoying microsoft application by making its own rules to decide what I want... but in reality is frustrating.
