  2. BUG: Default size when opening a PDF file

    BUG: Default size when opening a PDF file.
    I've tried all the suggestions, but when I open a PDF file, it opens with 199% or 165% BUT NEVER smaller. I would prefer that it ALWAYS opens in 75% or 100%. It is a waste of time to go and click on the - to make it smaller.
    I've changed the settings in Edit -- Preferences -- Page Display & Accessibility to 75% / Single Page.
    What else can I do?? Please help.

    It is sooo frustrating!

  3. the three dots

    by clicking three dots (...), a drop-down menu appears which is the closest thing I can achieve to my beloved custom tools that always appeared in the interface, in the order that I selected, and sometimes adjusted. Once something has been done, instead of dropping down the tools, clicking the three dots seems to repeat the most recent action, resulting in unwanted zooming. If you've got the three dots program to repeat the last action, please add an option to stop it.

  4. Adobe Acrobat DC Pro is powerful; however I find it impossible to save my frequently used tools. They move or disappear.

    A quick access toolbar (see the one available in MS Word) is essential for me. Acrobat X/XI had something like it, in that my frequently used tools always would be in the same place. I did customize the tools in my Acrobat DC Pro, and arranged the order the way I like them- at least three times. Nonetheless, my customized tools don't appear at next use.

  5. pan tool changes to selection tool randomly after panning mk2, this shouldn't have been declined.

    Pan tool is converting to the selection tool after I pan a sheet. I have pan selected; and am panning over images.

    Bump and agreed. The software juggling between pan and select is the most irritating feature I have ever experienced in all adobe products I have ever used. This shouldn't be considered a feature. Anyone who ever uses this has the knowledge to click the select tool before selecting stuff. When you have to browse through dozens of construction plans with comments and the whole bit that can amount to millions of dollars in liability if done wrong, and…

  6. Fix settings for page displays on the side bar..

    Each time I open a new doc, I have to click on the left side bar, then click on the pages to show them. My old version saved these settings and any new doc opened the pages would show.

    Why did the UI designers complicate things- aesthetically things Look good, but functionality is awful! Please consult with actual users before implementing these ridiculous changes.

  7. ability to remove the home screen. It's an extra click to close out of it and it's annoying.

    Why add an extra task to close a file? Whoever thought of this "brilliant" idea needs to actually work in this software in real life.. this is an annoying extra step.

  8. Search Function D.C. Home Page: Flexibility on Scope of Search

    Your recent update of Acrobat DC Pro changed the scope of the search function in the search box in the upper right hand corner.

    It used to search among the title of the files in my cloud (about 10,000) on the title of the file with boolean "and" logic if I put multiple descriptors.

    Now, it searches on the titles of files AND IN THE FILES which gives back too many search results to be useful for my purposes.

    So you can understand exactly: over 3 years I have built my entire library of thousands of documents with no subdirectories…

  10. Shortcut Keys for Opening Tools

    Please add shortcuts for high level tools like Edit PDF, Optimize PDF, Prepare Forms, etc. When working with a document that requires changing tools often, it's tedious to have to find the right icon and click on the side menu over and over. It would be great if something like Alt-O, etc. would open the Optimize PDF menu.

  11. out of memory or drawing error

    Acrobat file crashes frequently. It is a large file (35MB) and have tried to reduce it but that function doubles it! It sometimes says 'out of memory', sometimes 'drawing error', before crashing. I have spent the whole day trying all the fixes I could find on the various forums but nothing has worked. It has been very frustrating. I have attached file

  12. Revert UI back to Acrobat Pro layout

    No basic functionality in the top menu (Reduce File, etc.), no immediate access to a Marquee Zoom tool because the tool bar has to be opened in a separate tab every time I open a file before I can use them. I'm shocked that Adobe is still pushing on with this awful excuse for a UI. It's convoluted and a waste of user time, let alone visually inconsistent with all other Adobe products. Lots of user complaints relating to the same issues but, as usual, Adobe don't appear to want to fix it, just carry on shoe-horning what they think…

    It would be nice to be able to change size of the Page Thumbnails to icon size. Currently it is too big.

  14. Command Click Title Bar Finder MacOS

    I've noticed that with recent updates to Adobe Acrobat DC that one can no longer Command-Click the title bar of the window to open the containing folder in Finder. This works for other apps. This is really useful when trying to find the file.

  15. Restore choice of default view opening pdf for first time (e.g., 2-up cont. scroll)

    Acrobat DC is better than 11.x in many ways, but one lost feature is the ability to default opening documents viewed for the first time with 2-up continuous view (or other choices). Downloading pdfs from many sources, pdfs may be single page, single page scroll, etc, with bookmarks or menus open or closed. Acro11 actually worked when setting this default to 2-up. In DC preferences/page display/default layout & zoom, setting to 2-up has ZERO effect on documents opened for the first time. They open in the default of the provider. Please make this function WORK, as it did in v11.…

  16. Quick Access Toolbar:Expand to 2+ lines so ICONS fit on main screen = Disappeared from prev Acorbat XI

    The Acrobat XI version before Acrobat XI Pro 2017 let the user drag the corner of the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) so that it would expand to 2 or more lines. That way, the most-used icons would all be on the main screen without the insessant need to click on the 3 buttons to expand the options and see the icons .... Worse yet, if there are many icons, you have to press the down-arrow to get there. Yes, I understand that the icons can be 'moved up'.

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.
