  1. It is essential for the user to be able to disable the default view settings that were set by the creator of the document (often stupidly).

    It is essential for the user to be able to disable the default view settings that were set by the creator of the document (often stupidly).

    In 35+ years of using computer software, this is the dumbest default setting I have ever seen, and it creates serious usability issues for those wishing to use Acrobat for business purposes (i.e. not graphic design/web design/desktop publishing/etc)

    Please IMMEDIATELY ASAP fix this so that the user can disable these default settings and thus view documents effectively instead of spending loads of time fixing display *****-ups caused by the content creator's clumsy use of…

  2. Movable zero zero point in Acrobat

    Just like it says in title. All other Adobe products have it. Why not Acrobat?

  3. As everyone has said, the tools and overall layout is a nightmare.

    Why cant I zoom out of the default oversize document? Whose grandmother set these defaults?

  4. Toolbar icons keep changing/moving/disappearing

    Step back in functionality and hugely annoying--icons take up too much room, and seem to move/float around. I just had to add the "view one page" and "view full width" icons (side by side, BTW) to my toolbar, when they had been there just a few days ago.

  5. Why is everything so much more cumbersome to use in Acrobat DC than Acrobat XI?

    It seems like every simple task I was used to doing in Acrobat XI takes more clicks and time to perform in Acrobat DC. Seriously, what can this version do that makes this upgrade worthwhile? So far, it's a complete disaster.

  6. Zoom Percentage field/tool is missing from toolbar.

    In Acrobat DC, when viewing in untabbed mode, the part of the toolbar that shows the current zoom level and allows the user to type in the desired zoom percentage is missing. It appears on the floating/vanishing toolbar when page controls are moved out of toolbar, but not on the main toolbar.

    Please add this feature back to the toolbar. Using tabbed viewing is NOT a solution. This should have never been removed in the first place. Let me repeat, having to use tabbed viewing is NOT a solution.

  7. Find open PDF in Finder

    There was a way to find an open PDF in the Mac finder by using the control or option key. That function has been lost.

  8. 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.

  9. Sharing files with non CC users is annoying. They cannot see the files in a list view. They cannot 'download All'.

    Sharing files with non CC users is annoying. They cannot see the files in a list view. They cannot 'download All'.

    I propose there is a 'Download All' button and various ways to view the files online ie. List View. Because currently, file names are cut off and you cannot see the complete title.

  10. Why do I have to log in every time I use Adobe Acrobat DC

    Why do I have to sign in to my account every morning.

  11. drag and drop files in document cloud.

    seriously, this is such a basic feature that's available on any type of file organizer these days.
    whenever want to move a pdf into another file in my document cloud I have to:
    1) mark said file,
    2) then click move.
    3) pick the file to move my pdf into.
    4) then press ok...

    anywhere else this can be achieved in two steps, drag the pdf to the the destination file, and let go!

    while I'm at it, the document cloud seems so unintuitive. Regarding saving pdfs onto the cloud, it seems like that only way for me to save…

  12. Close all PDF's in File Menu

    Strange but nor Acrobat Pro DC, nor Reader don't have "close all files" menu.

    Yes, we can use it this script - https://acrobatusers.com/tutorials/creating-close-all-docs-menu-item , but we can't use it with script shortcuts as CTRL+SHIFT+F4 or CTRL+ALT+W

    That's annoying!

    Please re-add close all files feature in "File" menu!

  14. 1. Reduce icon size in menu bar by 50%, 2. Enable scrolling by default and not the single page view.

  15. Revert back to the classic UI. This is hands down the WORST version of Acrobat ever!

    Ax the leadership that thought it would be a good idea to change a well established tool causing myself and so many others so much frustration and wasted time that I am motivate to post this nasty-gram.

    Please publish a public statement and apology for making such a brash and disruptive change. I would be happy to personally berate the troglodyte(s) responsible for this offence personally!

  16. Dual highlighting

    After selecting text a highlighter/comment bar appears above the selection. this is awesome

    Please add a function to highlight in yellow or red as these are the two most used colors. Adding a custom color option would be helpful.

    Currently, switching the color is very cumbersome and interferes with focus on the document being reviewed.

  17. Make hand tool select select text only

    There is an issue using the option 'Make Hand tool select text & Images' in Preferences, General, Basic Tools. It would be nice to have 'Make Hand tool selected text' option without the selecting image.

  18. Comments are slipping when opening a single comment

    If I double-click on a comment it rises in the height (because of the post-button). Sometimes it rises also without double clicking, just on one click! If I click on the next comment the comment before shrinks and the current comment rises. So the complete list AND the current comment slips up. So if I have al list of 1000 comments and copy every comment-text to paste it in InDesign, my eyes and my brain gets tired of the constant comment-slipping. It's also hard to orientate if I switch between InDesign and Acrobat. Especially if the comment panels just shows…

  19. Zoom Value display

    Please, please can we have the option to show the Zoom Value (percentage) on the main toolbar. I can't use the 'out of toolbar' display as it disappears, and can't keep taking the mouse down to show the disappearing toolbar every time I want to know what zoom value I'm at.

    Thanks
    Mike

  20. Option to turn off whole word selection

    When selecting text in Acrobat (for applying a comment or other markup), Acrobat selects whole words (unless you are being particularly careful). It would be good to have the option to turn this off so that we can easily select partial words, starting in the middle of one word and ending in the middle of another.
