  5. Ruler tool

    Can you please add a ruler tool. One which you could click on and it would go across the screen. If you could have it utilize the up and down keys to control it's movement, that would be great. Our firm receives a lot of lists in adobe pdf. form and it would help us keep track of where we are as we go through the pdf list.

    Thank you.

  7. Allow users to delete their old stored payment method

    As an Acrobat DC subscriber, I'd like to be able to delete old payment methods tied to my account.

    Currently users have to reach out to Adobe support, and the process takes 5-7 business days - which is absurd is 2020. Every other subscription software allows the user to fully manage saved payment cards except Adobe

  9. Recently any optimized or extracted pdf generates a cannot find or create the font XXXXXX+ArialMT.

    Bug? Recently any optimized or extracted pdf by Standard DC generates a cannot find or create the font XXXXXX+ArialMT. Some characters may not display or print correctly. I've only been working with map pdfs produced by ArcGIS, but some of these are new and some quite old and I've never had this problem before. They seem to display properly but it is so annoying to have to click through the warning every time. The XXXXXX differs every time.

  10. BUG: newly updated adobe, constantly corrupting my files as they stay open.

    Before I updated my Adobe DC one file of mine had corrupted in a way that the information and fields were not loading but the original file was fine. Now that I have restarted my computer and updated Adobe, it seems nearly every single one of the files that I have open for continuous work are being corrupted - suddenly blank pages with some entry fields left behind.

  14. I have Acrobat DC Pro and every time I try to reduce the file size for a PDF, the program abruptly closes, and I can't actually do it.

    I have Acrobat DC Pro and every time I try to reduce the file size for a PDF, the program abruptly closes without reducing file size. If I restart the computer, I can usually (but not always) reduce one file size one time before the program resumes closing upon the reduce file size command. As you can imagine, any feature that requires a restart every time I want to use it is effectively a useless feature.

  15. camera raw version selection

    The new version of camera raw is inconvenient to use. I prefer the versions where the tools were at the top with icons and not on the right. it would be good if I could change versions to the previous interface myself. The new camera raw looks like LR and many people don't like it.
    scrolling down is a step back for more efficient work. It slows me down personally. old camera raw interface please

  16. Remove the 'Home', 'Tools', 'Document' buttons.

    Remove the 'Home', 'Tools', 'Document' buttons.
    Again, these buttons seem to me that they belong on the main tool bar, instead of wasting tons of space on the 'customizable' quick access tool bar. Why are they there? i don't know.
    It seems to me, that adobe has a lot of programmers with ideas, but no adobe test users, to let them know, whether the idea is good or bad.

    Adobe: please don't rely on us, the general user, to give you feedback to do that job for you. We all have work to do, and want to get it done…

  17. Remove the 'share', 'feedback', 'learn', 'notification' and 'profile' buttons

    Remove the 'share', 'feedback', 'learn', 'notification' and 'profile' buttons.
    these buttons are rarely (possibly never) used by the average pdf user.
    even if they are used by some, they should be removable, just like any other tools on the 'customizable' quick access tool bar.
    it is very annoying to have 5 big buttons getting priority over the customizable tool bar. I add and remove the buttons i need on the quick access tool bar, and they end up being hidden by 5 big useless buttons.
    move these buttons to the help menu, where they belong.

  18. Remove or have an option to turn of document caching in Acrobat

    As an agency, we prepare artwork in Indesign and PDF to send to clients. All work is proofed within Acrobat prior to sending and amended if required.

    Any amends are re-pdf'd and re-proofed. These amends need to stay under the same version no (read file name) but unfortunately Acrobat now caches pdfs so if we amends a document within indesign and re-open in acrobat with the same file name, it will open the older cached version and not the updated version.

    Because this is our internal proof, this file name and version no needs to stay the same before we…

  19. C++ plugin SDK ability to disable share, combine files and compare files tools

    I am creating a C++ plugin for Acrobat, where in user can use this plugin and open the file from secured DB using Virtual file system. However, need to restrict all forms of sharing or extracting of contents from the PDF which is opened.

    I tried using AVDocOpenFromPDDocWithParams and specified a permReqProc, using this I was able to restrict most of the tools from copying or extracting contents. i.e., Edit PDF, organize Pages, Prepare form etc.

    However, the following tools seems to be not honoring the permReqProc and still content is being extracted from the already opened PDF Document.
