  1. Permanent Toolbar Display and Features

    Longtime Bluebeam User... How can you not have toolbars permanently accessible? Similarly, when you create "quick tools" and you use one how to the tool properties (colors, fonts, etc.) not show up when the quick tool is selected for use. After using this for the last month I realize it is not really competing in the same space as Bluebeam but these are some functional items that cause users to make 4-5 clicks instead of 1, on markups of large plan sets this can add a lot of time to the effort, reducing efficiency.

  2. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Needs File Management Chops

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, unlike its vastly superior predecessor, Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, is extraordinarily poor in the file management window department.

    The search functions are terrible, and it is not possible to sort documents by the various parameters. Nor does it 'remember' what folder you used previously, so that you are always having to search back through the folders to get to where you want to be. It's very hard to figure out where you are by looking at the top of the file folder screen. Basically what used to be a great UI, is horrible.

    The idea is…

  3. Bug - Portfolio Opens in Small Window

    Acrobat DC Standard 2015 updated to v2015.006.30505. Following this update, portfolio files open in a very small window regardless of the size of the Acrobat window. Have to resize window every time a portfolio is opened in order to view it. Problem only affects portfolio files, regular pdf's are not impacted.
    Portfolio properties are not set to Resize to Initial View.

  5. New update has glitches with split screen

    After latest update, when creating a PDF, the program switches screens. I have split screens for a reason. I want Adobe to STAY on the screen I have it on. Very annoying. This did not happen before the update.

  6. Search to find Specific Tool

    It is nearly impossible to find some tools in the Tool groups, as they are frequently grouped in a way that is not intuitive. Searching for a tool such as "Zoom" would greatly enhance the customization of my Acrobat product for the things I frequently need.

  7. Comments pane still lags in Acrobat DC

    Steps to reproduce the issue:


    1. Open Acrobat DC

    2. Click the Comments pane button

    Environment: MacOS 10.14.6; other Adobe apps active are Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and Bridge

    Expected result: The Comments pane should immediately appear.

    Observed result: What I get instead is a spinning beach ball for way too long. THIS IS THE CASE EVEN WHEN THERE ARE NO COMMENTS!

  8. interface settings

    Presets for settings, and a customized page would be very helpful. Let users be able to have their preferences to adobe start up every time they open adobe. I know that it remembers, while the app is on. But every day I have to click combine open files, list view, and printer options.

  9. Always Show Document Page Size: Displays the page measurements beside the horizontal scroll bar. NOT working in Mac Version 2019.012.20040

    Always Show Document Page Size: Displays the page measurements beside the horizontal scroll bar. NOT working in Mac Version 2019.012.20040. Appeared correctly in initial setup, but disappeared the following day. Checking and unchecking the box makes no difference.

  10. Increase the number of documents which may be open at once

    I understand forty documents may be open at once in Acrobat Pro DC. However, I would like this number increased. I do research and having more documents open at once would be helpful!

  11. Home Tab interface

    In the Home tab there should be the following main tools listed:
    - Open (Document)
    - Create PDF
    - Combine files

    Those are what we use the most.

    My Home is showing Organize Pages, Fill & Sign, and Protect.I don't use those.

    Or, you can add the tools bar to the Home so I don't have to switch to the tools tab.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to concern.
    1) This is already implemented. The active tab already appears in a different color w.r.t the Rest of the Tabs. Please see the attached snapshot

    2) This can be achieved using Ctrl+T and Shift+Ctrl+T to move ahead and back in tabs respectively.

    Let me know if that helps.

    -Ayush

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
