  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ?

  5. Automatically Enable playing of 3D when the Add 3D tool is selected

    Automatically turn on the preference to "Enable playing of 3D content" immediately as soon as the "Add 3D" tool is selected in the Rich Media toolbar.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Highlighter tool automated stroke (old) vs. Corrective stroke (new) it should be an option, not an adaptation

    I think the user should have the option to use the highlighter free stroke corrective option (new) or automated stroke option (old). Users who read longer documents with many long highlights will struggle with the corrective method (new). It is helpful within a long document to have the pointer change to word select and highlight multiple sentences by simply dragging down through the rows of text, as opposed to skillfully highlighting each sentence independently. One option is for a stylus, the other is for workstations. Adobe should make that a preference. In the legal field, it can take forever to…

  11. Share/Review feature queue

    When routing multiple documents in the share/review feature with multiple people it is somewhat difficult to track the status of all documents that you originated or are reviewing. A single queue to list all documents originated or being reviewed by you that would allow you to designate status: routing, final approval (whatever designation needed). Have the queue shift things to the appropriate status when they are approved. Might even be able to change status in the queue. They can still be available if needed but would not be in the routing/proofing portion of the queue any longer. It would also…

  12. Leave panels the way I left them

    I often work with similar types of documents in Acrobat. I need to view comments by color. To do this I need to:


    1. Open the right hand panel.

    2. Click on "Comments"

    3. Click on "Sort By"

    4. Click on "Color"

    5. Click on the Options button ...

    6. Click on "Collapse All."

    I have to do this every single time. Please make it so that tools are left the way to user last used them, as is done in probably all the other Adobe programs.

    This is how Bluebeam Revu functions and it saves so much time. Usually when I need to work with…

  13. More comments at a glance

    I compared Acrobat X with the current version of Acrobat: At X you have 20 comments in the window at glance and in the current version it's just 9 comments! If I have a document with 1000 comments I have to scroll much more than in X and makes my work slower than before.

    Please make more comments visible at a glance again!

  14. Zoom + and - missing from the toolbar, one more layer of complexity to get to

    On the top toolbar there's a magnifying glass with a + in it, that then opens up another menu for + and -. This is an extra step, bring back the + and the - on the toolbar!

  15. Unable to save documents since most recent update

    I am unable to "save as" since the most recent update. I use Windows 10 Pro. My expected result is that I can "save as" rather than the white screen I get when I try to "save as"

  16. Bookmarks are opening to the page after the set destination. Action item set correctly

    I am often having an issue of bookmarks going to the page after the set destination. I have checked the bookmark properties and they are correct.

    The Action is 'execute a menu item' 'Go to a page in this document'.

  17. Can't find toolbars. Super annoying.

    Please revert back to an older version. I hate the new DC version. I used to be able to have my frequently used toolbars readily available when I opened acrobat. Now I have to use several additional clicks to get to the tools I need. It defeats the purpose of paying for acrobat when it defaults to nothing more than a reader. I've spent considerable time looking for a setting to leave the toolbars on the side of my extremely wide screen, but they are well hidden if available at all, and I refuse to sign in to anything.

  18. Startup Preferences

    Many of us would like Acrobat to work in a certain way that supports the way we work. For example, I want to always open in Read View (globally, not set per each document). Others have similar requests regarding Comments and such.

    I'd like to suggest that you implement a fairly comprehensive Preferences facility that enables us to customize this powerful product to the way we work. It does not take long for the frustration to build when the product is klunky. Give us the ability to smooth out some of the rough edges please.

  19. Full Screen Enable Scrolling

    When in Full Screen, the default setting is Single Page View. There is no way to change this in Full Screen. You can change it to, say, "Enable Scrolling" before entering full screen, but once you enter full screen it will revert back to the default. Please enable a way for the user to change the default Full Screen, Page View to their personal preferences in settings.

  20. Open document without popups aligned to the edge of the document

    The popups aligned to the edge of the document make interface difficult to use, is there a way to open without it? Have it turned off but get pdfs from others and it's very very hard to use, to see the comments without opening a huge window, then I have to try to see it and the window I'm editing at the same time. Please make a way to set these inside so I can see them. Thank you.
