  1. drag and drop files in document cloud.

    seriously, this is such a basic feature that's available on any type of file organizer these days.
    whenever want to move a pdf into another file in my document cloud I have to:
    1) mark said file,
    2) then click move.
    3) pick the file to move my pdf into.
    4) then press ok...

    anywhere else this can be achieved in two steps, drag the pdf to the the destination file, and let go!

    while I'm at it, the document cloud seems so unintuitive. Regarding saving pdfs onto the cloud, it seems like that only way for me to save…

  2. Make the page controls bar go away!!!! It ALWAYS manages to block what I'm trying to edit. Seriously, does anyone test this stuff?

  3. Can't open PDFs within Acrobat

    While within Acrobat, can't open files.
    Type command-O to navigate to a PDF file.
    Box opens to display files, but application crashes the second I start to navigate, for instance, go up a directory. This just started happening.
    Using Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra) and Creative Cloud Acrobat DC.

    Note: I CAN open PDF files from the finder. Will launch Acrobat if it isn't running already. Just not when I'm in the application.

  4. Hide Page Controls by Default

    Please add a setting to preferences to hide page controls by default on each new PDF.

    I don't want page controls docked to the top of the screen because I never use them, so when I choose "Hide Page Controls" I would like it if they stayed hidden. Yet, every time I open a new PDF, there they are again. I have to choose "hide page controls" on every new document. They hide content on the PDF by constantly getting in the way. You either have to drag it around or choose the setting I mentioned earlier to see the…

  7. Import and export PDF bookmarks

    During troubleshooting scenarios we periodically need to save a problematic PDF file as a PS file to regenerate it with the distiller. As a result, the bookmarks are lost. We would like to see an option to export bookmarks from a problem PDF file and be able to import them into a working PDF file. We understand there are 3rd party solutions that can achieve this but we work with highly sensitive data and would prefer an Acrobat native solution that would be available in Acrobat 2017 Classic and Acrobat DC.

  9. Adobe Acrobat DC Version: 19.012.20040 freezes on startup-white dialog box

    After updating to this version, on startup the application displays an empty dialog box and completely freezes, forcing you to quit the application in Task Manager. Repair, uninstall/reinstall, clearing temp files all did not work.
    Starting application on the administrator account allowed it to go through the dialog box which had to do with resetting default apps then allowed the application to startup and run correctly on the limited user account.

  10. Disable recent files popup

    Just the other day my Acrobat DC suddenly started popping up a "recent files" window every single time I go to do anything on my computer, even do a google search or look at email, if Acrobat is open. This is incredibly annoying because it stops everything I'm doing and I have to close that window before I can keep going. I don't even need a recent files list but this new popup is driving me nuts. If you don't make it possible to disable it or just get rid of it altogether I'm switching to another app.

  11. Open another instance of a file in a new tab

    I want to open another instance of an already opened file using Acrobat pro 2017. This version has tabbed display of files. I can open the next instance in another window, bot not in the same window under another tab. There is a work around to it in the forum discussion. https://forums.adobe.com/message/11222204
    But this is not an elegant method. I hope Adobe will provide the function that will allow it to be open in a new tab.

  12. Open the same pdf twice simultaneously

    I would like to open a the same book twice , and that is to view different pages of the same book,
    it is helpful while studying a book and wanting to quick reread a paragraph from another chapter

    trying to open the same pdf for the second time will only send me to the already open window of the same pdf

    a side-feature,
    if you decide to add this feature
    sync-ing the pdf between both instances after editting would also be great

  13. Bring back the functionality and layout of Acrobat 9 Pro

    Acrobat DC is an absolute PITA to use. It has no UX continuity with the rest of the CC suite, the tools are allocated to the vaguest of places and the basic functionality that is regularly used, Marquee Zoom Tool especially, are relegated to the top menu when they should be in the header with the page controls. These are tools that are regularly used, unlike the '-' and '+' buttons and search tool that are in clear view.

    It's a pointless, redundant redesign that causes more problems and waste of time than it actually serves. Bring back the layout…

  14. Open last session error

    At file access problems while open last session (2nd menu entry in file menu) acrobat shows an pop-up notice only telling there is a problem (s. attached image, German version) but not showing which file this error-pop-up belongs to.
    Hence, the user is less informed to look for the problem and probably open the file manually.
    In case of more then one file having an actual access problem a Summary and a "try again" option would be very helpful.
    Belongs to Acrobat Pro DC 2019.012.20035.4663.

  15. german user interface : translation File-open PDFs of last session

    The Translation of the newly introduced function "open last session" in the actual (2019.012.20035.4663) German GUI is "PDFs auf letzter Sitzung öffnen" the better Translation would be "PDFs aus letzter Sitzung öffnen".
    You see the typo ?

  17. Redact Preferences

    Allow me to set a preference in order to reduce the number of steps required to redact information -
    1) Set preference to redact "text and images" instead of having to click on that choice for every page.
    2) Set preference to save redacted files to a specific folder (or automatically save to last used) instead of having to click to select it over and over and over.
    WAY too many steps to take to redact and save multiple images. And you have to move from one area of the screen to another to another... a lot of wasted time…

  18. Include page display in Quick Tools menu

    I like to read documents in the Two Page display mode. I'd like to add this button to the Quick Tools but Page Display is not part of the menu. Please include the page display options in the menu of Quick Tools.
    Thanks.

  19. Greek language

    Include Greek language in adobe acrobat pro dc interface as it was in earlier versions (10.0). Greek is a significant language. For example, Microsoft office fully supports Greek and Google. It is unacceptable the creator of PDF to not use Greek!
