  1. Bug: Can't open PDF from ActiveX control

    The latest release of Acrobat Reader DC crashes when a PDF is accessed through an ActiveX control, such as Microsoft's CHM viewer. This has drastic effects on several developers who depend on such a workflow. More explanation in a forum post https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/acropdfimpl64-dll-crashes-when-pdf-is-accessed-via-activex-webbrowser-control-x64/m-p/12133227

  2. Acrobat Pro Home Screen

    Please allow the user to turn off the home screen, so that we do not have to close it after every single PDF we look at. At the bare minimum allow us to use a keyboard shortcut to close the home screen. The fact that I have to actively close this needless window every single time makes it twice as annoying.

  3. Measure in both feet and inches

    Currently when measuring in a PDF, Acrobat only gives the measure measurement in feet (i.e. 20.5 feet). It would be nice if Acrobat, in lieu of providing the measurement in a fraction of a foot, used a combination of both feet and inches (i.e. 20 feet 6 inches).

  4. Pre-Made Standard Stamp for Plaintiff's Exhibits

    There needs to be a Standard Business stamp for lawyers. It should mimic the Exhibit labels we must use on documents that will become exhibits at trial. Most documents come to us now in digital form. It makes no sense to print them onto paper, place an Exhibit sticker on them, and then scan them back for submission to the court. We ought to be able to digitally put a stick on them from the Standard Stamp file, and then enter an exhibit number on each one. (Your Bates Stamp feature does this beautifully. Wish there were exhibit labels set…

  5. For adobe pro add drag and drop pdf's directly from outlook without opening the pdf

    For combining pdf's in adobe pro would be nice to have a option that you can drag a other pdf directly from outlook into a other pdf file without opening the file. You now need to open bove pdf's first to combine it would be faster to open one pdf and then drag the other once right away into one pdf.

  6. Adobe Logo

    Currently use Adobe Acrobat DC (20.012.20041). The logo is colored black and is almost invisible on the taskbar. You should consider reverting to the red color you had previously. Out-of-sight...out-of-mind! :)

  8. STOP POP-UPS opening advertising acrobat features after document is opened

    After I open a pdf, A pop-up appears to "advertise' some particular feature such as 'fill & sign' for example. This is EXTREMELY ANNOYING. Also highly UNPROFESSIONAL as occurs during a potential client presentation.
    Please DISABLE THIS IMMEDIATELY. We pay for the product - NOT for ADOBE advertise itself during my time.

  9. Allow using applicable editing keyboard shortcuts from AI or PS.

    Keyboard shortcuts for many AC-DC editing features already exist in IN, AI and PS, (like send forward or backward), and would be super helpful timesavers.

    Also all of the votes for improved keyboard shortcuts are related, and point to an OVERWHELMING case for better keyboard shortcut functionality. Compare to the keyboard shortcut requests for other Adobe products.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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.!

  17. save and save as function

    save and save not working

    File >save > and you get a empty window with no function or options.

    when you try to use the save or save as function from the menu you have an empty window with no functions or options so you cannot save. I trick the system by doing a reduce file.... Mac OS Mojave 10.14.06 it is annoying.

  18. It's 2020--we need Acrobat Pro x64 for Windows

    It's 2020. We still do not have Acrobat Pro x64. Our company develops engineering solutions around the world for aerospace and car companies, and the aerospace models are enormously complex--despite all efforts to compress models and use other formats to reduce size, the fact is that Acrobat does not handle these well, often freezing or crashing (even more prevalent since the Windows 10 required switch, as Win10 is so consistently buggy). It's 2020 and there is no excuse that we're still asking for a 64-bit version of Acrobat Pro on Windows. If you've already moved to x64 for Mac, you've…

  19. file name to long

    BUG - Acrobat will not open a file if the file path is to long, THEN it will not export anything if the file name is to long. As far as I am aware we are no longer in the 90s so this should never be an issue. File name I understand as I personally do not want long names so I fixed it, so apparently there is a limit? What IS that limit...now remove that limit. File path? Was basically External Drive, 5 folders deep. Thats it and got an error saying path to long. That HAS to be…
