  1. I just subscribed and am used to older versions. Aside from being extremely blingy, where are the annotative tools? i.e. circle, square, etc

    Annotations; circle, square, line-where are they?
    Way too much bling here
    How do you disable the sign fill boxes-this is super annoying

  4. Acrobat DC Windows links bug

    I created a Word document with some hyperlinks to PDF file, then I exported the Word file to PDF using the Acrobat DC component inside Word.
    The links in the resulted PDF works well with Acrobat for macOS, it doesn't work with Acrobat DC on Windows. The links is broken if the target is a file with a name of 1 to 2 characters (es.: 0.pdf, 00.pdf).
    It's very strange, it's hard to explain...

  6. How to recover MS Word files?

    Corrupted DOC files? Looking for the best way to recover the MS Word files? Then use the new MS Word repair tool.

    The tool recovers all corrupted unreadable Word data from corrupted Doc files in less than a minute. A user can recover single and multiple Doc files hence, the tool saves a lot of time.

    It does not merge with any other application or never causes any malfunction in the document. It safely repairs corrupted word files without making any alteration to the original data and without data loss.

    For more info:- https://bit.ly/MSWordrepair

  8. Re: ‘open PDFs from last session’. I

    Re: ‘open PDFs from last session’. It would be helpful if there was a facility in ‘recent documents’ to open a series of PDFs from not just the last session, but sessions prior to the last session

  10. Save Workspace Feature

    Provide a feature to save a list of all open documents which can later be read by Acrobat to re-open the exact same set of documents.

    I realize there is a list of recently open documents, but that list is constantly changing over time. I often find myself working on a project in which I have a dozen or more documents open at once, many of which are located in disperse directories. I need to be able to come back to that project and view the exact same set of documents, picking up exactly where I left off. The recently…

  12. 'Recently opened files' list is always empty at startup

    The latest version of Acrobat (2019.021.20048) no longer keeps my recently opened files. This list is emptied each time I close the application.

  13. Tool bars

    Would be great if more customization would allow user to choose to see only the tools they would like to see. Way too many tools on tool bar that are not used. The unused ones take up space that I would prefer to have the tools i use often occupy. Results in multiple unnecessary clicks to access the tools I do use. I have customized the quick tool bar but when reviewing a document in portrait mode only 2 of those are displayed - and can only access the others with additional clicks. Meanwhile many are displayed that I have…

  14. Improve your subscription pricing, trial and cancellation policy for individuals

    Please consider updating the pricing, trial and cancellation policy for your product subscriptions. Your monthly subscription fees are way too expensive for individual customers, with one exception - your photography plan. Your photography plan is a great value. Why can't your other plans be like that?

    Also, who can remember to cancel within 7 days? When you start charging monthly fees for a yearly plan so quickly, and then charge a ridiculous amount (50%!) for your cancellation fee, it makes me feel like you couldn't care less about your customers - you just want to make a buck. Is that…

  16. The most annoying piece of software I have ever used.

    I just wanted to let you know that Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is the most annoying piece of software I have ever used. It doesn't look like anyone at Adobe considered usability or the end customer when creating this software.

  17. worst performing program ever. Open in tabs?, Search term returns to the first location if click next, black squar appear over tex

    Return to the old version. The more you develop the worst it becomes at every upgrade. Completely irrational errors. Retract the last upgrade from users.!

  18. Combining Files into ONE PDF with files of similar Form Fields

    Trying to combine 12 files into one single PDF. Multiple files have form fields that are similar. Adobe will not combine the files individually and forces me to create a portfolio. When I send the portfolio doc out it cannot be read. What a waste of time. Why can't we combine similar fillable forms with different data into one single document. MAKES NO SENSE.

  20. Admin console to manage password resets without system admin role

    It is quite silly for the full System Administrator role to be required to reset a users password. There has to be a role to allow user management, which is usually done by a Helpdesk team.
