  1. You have ruined Acrobat. Nothing works smoothly anymore. Stop updating just to do so!

    Too many clicks, to many freezes, horrible updates this past year! Please get rid of unnecessary updates!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
