  1. ******* pop ups

    Why the are you interrupting my workflow with fing pop ups that not only have I NO INTEREST in whatsoever and they've just crashed the fing application. Stop trying to push me in the direction of the cloud - if I wanted to go there I would sort it out myself. And I don't want you 'reaching out' to me. Just turn it off by default.

  3. Keyboard Shortcuts to Show Black/White Screen when PDF is Launchedin FullScreen/Presentation mode

    Brief title for your desired feature: black and white screens in full screen/presentation mode

    like it works in keynote by using a shortcut like cmd+b and cmd+w and MS powerpoint(Shift+B, Shift+W)

    Why is this feature important to you?
    Presenting pdfs with the need to black out the presentation on the beamer without having access to the beamers remote.

  4. Fix the UI so it is not stupid

    The UI for Acrobat Pro DC is absolutely horrible and non-intuitive. It actually takes me longer to do everything because I have to click into multiple areas on the screen instead of just the sidebar (e.g., to recognize text, I now have to mouse into the side bar, then move to the upper bar).

    That also assumes I can find where the feature/tool now resides. I have to constantly search for it.

    The Save As dialog breaks Windows user training and muscle memory because the big blue button is not “Save” or “okay” as expected. It is “Choose a Different…

  5. Return the Acrobat interface to something professional

    Return the Acrobat interface to something professional, similar to InDesign, Photoshop, etc, instead of the childish and dysfunctional mess.

  6. "Save as..." button in the File tools

    Just a button for the "Save As..." function. I use this a lot for saving files I open from email attachments.

  7. Icon in window frame invisibile/undraggable (Osx)

    After last update (Osx and CC 2020) there is no icon on the top of the opened documents frame in Acrobat. Usually, to speed the work, I export PDF from Indesign, automatically they open in Acrobat and I drag the icon to Skype. Loosing this ability I must find the document in the finder every time.
    Someone know if there is a solution to restore this function?
    Thank you

  8. Can't disable annoying tips and tricks popups

    Yeah, so you know those "helpful" tips that pop up in little blue boxes when you start the program? Those are annoying. There is nothing in Adobe Acrobat that is not too straightforward to understand, and I do not need help using the program. Please add an option to disable these.

  10. Keyboard shortcut to show Organize Pages

    Please give the ability to open the Organize Pages Window Pane with a keyboard shortcut command (or the ability for a user to make one). It's an implementation that would have a huge impact on the everyday workflow of our buisness.

  12. Permanently hide Navigation Pane

    Adobe, please give users the option to permanently hide the Navigation Pane. I have to click the arrow on every single doc I open in order to hide it! Give me a simple option to disable that stupid pane. Do a google search on this and you'll find countless users asking for the same thing...since the last 5 years. Fix it already!

  13. Allow user to enlarge menu fonts

    Adobe should allow user to enlarge menu font sizes.

    I often want to know what page number I’m working in, but must lean into the screen to visualize the tiny number font listed in the menu bar.

  14. Browser PDF Hyperlinks with the ability to choose an option to open the link in a new browser window.

    When you open a PDF in a browser, and there are hyperlinks in that PDF, when you click on a hyperlinks, it opens in the same window. Is there a way to force it to open a new window? Is there an option or button that one can click that will allow this to happen?

  15. Bookmark a whole section of pages

    Add bookmark feature that will mark a whole section of pages in a pdf that can be extracted later as a separate document. This would allow better management of the merging and un-merging multiple pdfs into and out of a larger pdf file. This would be helpful if only one chapter in a pdf file needs to be removed, edited and then replaced.

  17. I hate everything about the acrobat pro DC menus

    So far I hate everything about the acrobat pro DC menus and it has been 2 years, I keep hoping for an update backward for the old menu.
    Changing the way pdf are managed and adding additional features, is great but why would you change menus commands and locations.
    We are all using computers not tablets, and the so called lighter theme sucks.

    Hi,

    Thanks for Reaching out to us.
    I would request you to kindly add the Loupe tool in your main toolbar. thats how you can do that

    1) launch any pdf and right click on the main toolbar
    2) select “Show Select and zoom Tool” and click on “Loupe Tool”
    3) click on the loupe tool icon added to the toolbar and then click on any area in the pdf

    Now you can see an enlarged view of a specific area in a pdf in a separate window

    Let me know if that solves your concerns

    Thanks
    Ayush Jain

  20. Tab Management

    I'm constantly in and out of Acrobat.
    I would love to be able to right click and either close all tabs or close all tabs to the right without closing Acrobat. I jump from job to job and each has its own handful of PDFs to view. When I'm done with a job, I have to either manually close each tab or close the whole window and select close all tabs. Then immediately after, I have to open more and wait for Acrobat to start up again.
