  1. When you open multiple PDFs, they're shown as tabs in the same Acrobat window. If you would then switch to tiled view (Shift+Ctrl+l) they become split into separate windows. That's odd.

    Bug: Ctrl+Shift+l is supposed to place them side by side, in a row, but they're tiled on the screen, so that 4 PDFs are distributed in 2x2.

    Feature request: do not split the tiled view into separate windows. Do the same as in Indesign. 2 up vertical etc., all in one window. Why? If you want to have them back into one window again there is no action for…

  2. In Print Production > Set Page Boxes dialog, the position of the selection boxes for input of margin values are not very intuitive. When setting the bottom margin, I tend to go to the last box, which as it is, is for the right margin. I propose a much more intuitive positioning of the input boxes. The current dialog box and the new, proposed one are in the uploaded images.

    Note the intuitive positions of the input boxes, Top, Left, Right, Bottom, which correspond to the actual positions on the page. Small details like this expedite work because they avoid…

  3. The user's choice for "fit to width scrolling", "fit one page", "read mode" should remain consistent for ALL documents and sessions. It's extremely aggravating that i have to choose my preference for every document.

    Further, based on internet searches, setting the page display preference to "single page continuous" and "fit width" in preferences does not actually change the default behavior to what i want nor stick across future docs that are opened.

    Every f*ing doc i open i have to click on the "fit to width scrolling" to be able to read the doc.

  4. Bug

    A weird issue only when you try to combine PDFs from the right-click menu in Windows.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Find 2 or more PDFs in Explorer, highlight them, right-click, Combine Files in Acrobat...
    2. Acrobat launches with a white screen. To fix, simply resize the window in any way and the screen for combining files renders correctly. Click Home and going tack to Tools also fixes it.

    Windows 10 22H2 (Also occurs in Windows 11 21H2). Occurs on many workstations in our environment.
    Acrobat Pro 2022.003.20322

    I'd expect it to load the combine files interface when Acrobat launches.…

  5. The website is not accepting my vote on another idea (although I am logged in), so I'm adding more ideas.
    Multiple issues:
    1. The new icon-based styles for editing or commenting are completely nonintuitive; other than printing/saving/zooming/scrolling from the other toolbars, I don't know what any of the buttons mean.
    2. Please move some buttons from editing to commenting or vice versa, or combine their toolbars, or rename their bars. It is ridiculously hard to figure out how to add a rectangular shape in the new Acrobat Pro. It was easy in my last version of Acrobat Pro
    3. Please…

  6. New toolbar overlapping a ruler.
    It should adjust screen position automatically to avoid covering other interface elements.
    Give us option to move that floating toolbar too and also possibility to change default buttons position.

  9. I am amazed at how hard it is to flatten a document when you’re trying to accomplish something so simple. It is amazing and impressive that Adobe has made it so complex, confusing, and impossible to use. It is so bad that when I call Adobe for help, the tech support just advises me to open up the document in Google Chrome and save it as a PDF. For such an expensive product, that is ridiculous!!!

  10. Please restore functionality that existed in Acrobat X:
    1. Drag & Drop files with Legacy Actions and with Acrobat DC actions
    2. Do not displaying each file processed by actions for faster processing
    3. Be able to edit actions created in prior versions of Acrobat
    4. New actions should have an option to prompt user to add more files before running
    Please watch the following video for a complete description and comparison of the functionality to Acrobat X:

  11. Admin Console missing KEY Admin feature, reset a user's password. I am going to flood these forums once an hour every day until I get some to respond to why. Security reasons is not acceptable, I am the admin.

  12. Using 64-bit Acrobat since version 22.003.20282, in any PDF document when opening Document Properties, then changing to the Description tab and to Security tab the text is overlapping.

    We have found that if you disable Sandbox Protections under Prefereneces - Security (Enhanced) - Uncheck Enable Protected Mode at startup it resolved the issue. We plan on opening a ticket with Adobe.

    You can also turn it off via the regitry
    [HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\Privileged]
    "bProtectedMode"=dword:00000000

  13. UX design used to be to provide the best possible functional interface to allow the end user to be as productive as possible. The latest Adobe Acrobat interface flys in the face of these standards. It has moved menus, hidden functionality behind icons and in the name of looking cool or nice has ruined my productivity.

    I never comment in these forums, but what you have done with the latest interface is so dysfunctional that if you worked for me I would fire the lot of you.

  14. Even if a single document is open in New Acrobat Pro the file name is displayed as trimmed. This is totally unacceptable in workflows where file names carry important information and must be inspected together with visual PDF information. This simple interface change makes Acrobat useless in prepress work, please fix this or provide a solution in settings.

  15. on the adobe acrobat online documents page, files have their modified dates displayed but only in the American Format (e.g. 2/3/2023). This is confusing for users outside U.S.

    can it be updated to at least Follow international standard as the baseline or give options for display type

  16. Well, sonny, back in the old days in 2022, Acrobat had this interface where you could insert a page from a scanner in two mouse clicks. That was before the new fangled 2023 version that requires making an all new document and importing it.

    It used to be you'd just go to File > Insert Pages > From Scanner and, pow, zap, whoop, there'd be the pages you'd want to add.

    Now that they got this new-fangled interface and first you have to find the "File" menu item. That's hidden up under the three bars. Everyone else in the world…

  17. Allow users to remove these buttons as they take up quite a lot of space. ADOBE continues to worsen the user experience using this PAID app, by forcing icons in valuable real-estate.

  18. File Property name "Reading Options" is translated as 「読み上げオプション」 in Japanese, and this is quite misunderstanding as 「読み上げ」 means "verbal reading", while the file properties specify the reading (book-binding) directions and written languages. This shold be fixed as 「読み方オプション」, which denotes neutral "reading options".

  19. Preference → Full Screen → Full Screen Transitions → "Nvaigation Controls Direction" check button is not working on Acrobat Pro (2022), while it works on Acrobat Reader DC. If it is a persistent bug, I hope it would be fixed and make it works as exactly same as Acrobat Reader.

  20. My idea is to bring back the old function interface.

    The new user interface is the most inconvenient, inexplicable, poorly organized user interface I have experienced with any Adobe product.

    In the future, interfaces should be tested with real live users and not code writers.

    I wish there were a way to use a "legacy" interface.
