  1. 3d connexion 3d mouse useability of zoom feature

    In previous versions of Adobe Acrobat / reader you could use a 3d mouse (3dconnexion) to zoom and navigate a document. This is very helpful on larger drawing type documents where you want to move around and zoom in. I noticed that the 3d mouse does work to scroll up and down a text type document. Are there any plans to integrate zoom and pan features?

    Choose View > Zoom > Pan & Zoom, or click the Pan & Zoom tool in the Select and Zoom toolbar.

    Do any of the following:
    1.Drag the handles of the box in the Pan & Zoom window to change the document magnification.

    2.Drag the center of the box to pan across the area you want to see.

    3.Click the navigation buttons to move to a different page.

    4.Enter a value in the zoom text box, or click the plus or minus buttons to increase or decrease the magnification by preset levels.

  2. Change default lookup link for selected word definitions in Acrobat Pro and Reader

    Currently the default lookup reference for word definitions in Acrobat is dictionary.com, an inadequate resource for a great many word definitions. There should be a setting to change this default to another URL of the user's choice. Some examples, but not exclusively, that are significantly better than the current choice would be merriamwebster.com or oxforddictionaries.com

  3. A document where images cannot be screenshot to be searched for on google images or way to alter our images so same images don't come up

    I need to be able to create a document where the images we include can not be screenshot and the searched for in google image search (thus enabling the person I am sending the PDF to to go to competitor websites who have the same images as us). So either no screenshot allowed or the ability to change the images we have sufficiently that google image will not find it.

  4. Allow for customizability of text snippets in advanced search results

    Summary of the Problems: Search result snippets in an Advanced Search are often uninformative due to two distinct problems.

    Problem 1. The length of text snippet in each search result is too short.
    Problem 2. The search term occurs too "early" in the result snippet (that is, the term you searched for is the first or second word in the snippet--you see nothing that came before your term, which is often what you needed to know).

    Solution to Problem 1: allow the user the ability to customize the maximum size of snippets returned with search results. We have huge monitors…

  5. Show page numbers in advanced search results

    Problem: When doing an Advanced Search, in order to find out the page number of any given search result, you must hover the pointer over each individual search hit and wait for a popup of its page number to appear.

    Feature request: Show the page numbers on which those hits occur, and preferably in a column to the left of each search hit.

    Reason it's needed: This would save a tremendous amount of time for certain labor intensive tasks, for instance, manually indexing a book. To elaborate a bit: When manually indexing a large book (say, 500 pages), you regularly…

  6. Acrobat combine files + Batch compare pdf + Clarify array object error

    If you want supporting screen shots or more detail, please contact me.
    Jyotika at Acrobat Help adchelp@adobe.com has my eMail and tele#

    1. Combine files into a Binder always FORCES the default to be filename sequence.
      The User should NOT be forced to move HUNDREDS of files in a large document
      just to get them in the proper sequence.

      Yes, there is the "Move Up/Down" option which works on each file ONE AT A TIME.
      However, has anyone on the Acrobat team actually tried to do that to resequence
      over 1,000 pages into an absolutely different non-alpha result??? THINK DAYS !!!!

  8. Allow Action Wizard to "Close" files

    The feature was available on early versions which made batch processing easier. I believe it allowed the user to Execute a Menu Item. Please bring it back. The javascript work arounds all seem to have their own little issues.

  11. Bug on Redacted Information

    I have received a redacted contract on Adobe Acrobat Standard DC that I use on Windows 7. When I hold down ctrl and scroll in (to zoom) the redacted information flashes and I can see what information is blacked out. I think the information should be securely blacked out so there is no possibility of obtaining that information.

  13. Raise without a handler

    Wow. I LOVE your products, but HOLY S&*T was it difficult to get to a point where I could actually "Contact" adobe. As a professional UX designer (sorry for how that must sound...) this UX is ABSOLUTELY unacceptable for a company of your prestige.

    Here is my issue, I used to be able to drag .png files into Adobe Acrobat and the software would brilliantly ask me if I wanted to combine these pngs into a single file, "Why yes, Thats exactly what I want! Thank you."

    This worked flawlessly for the last year. Now, out of nowhere, the program…

  14. It is so slow it is almost unusable.

    Adobe Acorbat Pro DC is so slow it is almost unusable. I am ready to find an other .pdf creator. I have tried every fix found in the forums and nothing has substantially helped.

  19. DC PRO constantly crashes

    DC Pro is totally unreliable, whether creating a pdf, trying to access a pdf or saving the program displays "DC Pro not responding. Happens very frequently making the program useless. Have worked with support 3 times no resolve. Occurs on both my WIN10 and WIN7 computers, never had a problem with ver 7 through 10. Pay lots for DC team but will have to look for another vendor.

  20. Automatically open the same files after restart

    Automatically open the same files on same page after restart. This would great in conjunction with the feature "Restore last view settings when reopening documents". If one has several documents open and one has to restart Adobe Acrobat or Windows it would be quite timesaving and relieve the pain of having to find each document and re-open.
