  1. 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…

  2. 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.

    1. Viewing pdfs from task bar flickering

  5. Singe page view, horizontal swipe to "flip" pages

    Drawboard PDF's single page view allows one to swipe through pages (like "flipping" pages in a book). I find this helps with retention as it breaks apart the text, delineated by page breaks. I've tried your single page vertical scrolling view, but I found it to be clunky. A few things that would probably make this better (for the horizontal swipe as well):


    1. Don't have the page "glued" to the screen, but put it on a rubber band -- so, as someone "drags" the page, you can see it react/ shift from the center/ default position. If the user just…

  7. Strumenti

    se fosse possibile scegliere la dimensione (Grande o Piccolo) delle icone degli strumenti o ridurre lo spazio fra una e l'altra in quanto troppo ingombranti (ne ho circa 40 preferite), sarebbe comodo anche se andassero su 2 righe ma farebbero rimpicciolire l'area di visualizzazione del pdf, inoltre, se fosse possibile, cambiare alcune icone in modo da far capire meglio a cosa corrispondono. Ad esempio l'anteprima separazione è troppo simile a quella di ottimizzazione pdf. la conversione colore era molto più immediata quando era colorata. La frecciata per far accedere ai pannelli di navigazione dovrebbe sempre essere aperta e, semmai, ritrarla…

  8. Finer Adjustments in Full Screen Mode

    In Full Screen Mode I can only Zoom In or Out with the Mouse Wheel which picks coarse magnification levels. I would like a Keyboard Sequence to be able to Increase or Decrease Magnification by 1% up or down (while maintaing the Full Screen Mode.

    I have need to adjust some PDF embedded images to the maximum screen real estate I can get and being able to adjust Magnification Up or Down by 1% each click would be Very Useful.

  10. Adobe Acrobat crashes when a network is connected but no Internet access exists

    If the Mac is connected to a WLAN hotspot, but has no internet access via this WLAN and I start Adobe Acrobat, the program crashes. The interface opens briefly and then Acrobat wants to log in with the account to check its license. Either the program terminates itself or the Mac has the beachball. In this case Acrobat cannot be closed normally. Only if I kill the program the Mac can be used normally again. If I have internet access via the WLAN or deactivate the WLAN, Acrobat will work again.

  11. Bookmark height and bookmark text size

    In Acrobat Pro, reducing the size of the bookmark text also reduced the bookmark height, so more bookmarks were visible at any one time. In Acrobat Pro DC, the bookmark height is fixed at a height that accommodates large text, so reducing the text size doesn't increase the number of visible bookmarks. For example, where I could previously see 57 bookmarks in Acrobat Pro (with small text), I can now only see 40 bookmarks in Acrobat Pro DC.
    Having more visible bookmarks makes the bookmark facility more useful. It is easier to find a bookmark, and it is easier to…

  12. Bug: no key binding of custom menu

    Brief title: Bug: no key binding of custom menu
    Steps to reproduce the issue: Adding a (sub)menu item through javascript API e.g. app.addSubMenu('CustomScripts', '', 'File', 0)
    Environment (OS, other related application versions, etc.): Windows 7 running Acrobat 2019.008.20081
    Expected result: An alphanumeric key binds to the item name. In the example above, since "C" is binds to Close of File menu item, binding of "u" is expected to the custom menu item named "CustomScripts"
    Observed result: No alphanumeric key binding. A user using keyboard can only navigate through arrows, which is tedious and not accessible friendly.

  15. Please add the Text add icon to the main tool bar. Why cant it be part of that?

    I always have to open the comments bar to add text. Why not just have that T in the main bar or allow us to add that. Also, why is the icon for Comments bar the same as sticky note? Odd. so please give us ability to choose more icons for the main bar. Takes too much time opening different bars. That is not efficient at all. And make that comments icon different than the sticky note one. Strange.

  16. Mass Edit PDF Meta Data

    Per support, it is not currently possible to mass edit the Title attribute of multiple PDFs simultaneously. It would be very helpful to be able to mass edit PDF meta data.

    Example: A user has hundreds of PDFs. Many of them have a single space as the Title attribute. This is confusing for the user since it appears to them that no title is displayed when opening a PDF.

    Using Action Wizard, you could select the folder with the PDFs and edit the title attribute for all the PDFs simultaneously.

  17. Notebook Feature

    A feature that would pull highlighted text into a single document or space. It would also combine comments. The end goal would be for the user to have a custom outline of the content with their notes without needing to go back through the whole document or export to work and copy/paste.

  19. menues, ribbon and top portion of window goes white and window controls don't work

    I use Adobe Acrobat through my entire Engineering Consulting Business (Bowden engineering Solutions Pty ltd), but I have a bug with Acrobat DC Pro. I am running it on a laptop that has on Windows 10 and a second monitor that is connected with HDMI and positioned above the laptop monitor. The laptop monitor is still selected as the "main display". The bug occurs about 50% of the time when I open an Acrobat file. The Acrobat window maximises on the second monitor and there is a blank portion along the top of the Acrobat window that covers the menus,…
