  1. "Resolve" status returns sync error

    When setting the status of a comment to "Resolve" an error is returned. A pop-up box reads:
    "We weren't able to sync your comment. Please try adding a different comment."
    The comment's status will change to "Resolved" but the error message pops up every time.

  2. Need to have a comments resolution discussion list

    Need to have a comments resolution made from the shared review comments. The comments should be organized into a discussion list so that the host is able to respond to the comments and the reviewers to reply on it.

  3. crashing on share or e-mail; can't access contacts

    The software is so incredibly buggy - any attempt to share makes the software crash. Cannot share files saved in document cloud or elsewhere, share via e-mail (with outlook Mac) causes crash, share via document cloud causes crash, attempts to access address book to share via native adobe app causes crash. Why can't I just drag files stored in the document cloud into an e-mail or message - this is the easiest way to share. Share/collaboration is literally unusable in acrobat DC - WHY?! Our entire team may have to move away from the entire Adobe platform if this is…

  4. Load Google Contacts only Once (for Sharing PDF's Faster)

    I set up my Acrobat DC to use my Google Contacts as default contacts when sharing PDF's. I have around 1,000 Google Contacts.

    Each time I press the contacts search button to select contacts with whom to share a PDF, Acrobat loads and parses all the contacts. It is slow.

    Instead, load the contacts once. Allow some method (a button?) for re-loading if the user (me) thinks the data needs to be refreshed.

  5. Email without tracking

    This was closed, but not actually resolved. Nice Try Adobe! I would like to send a PDF without tracking, received via cloud, etc. Either it can be fixed or not. Putting Resolved on it without the features and benefits of the past is not a fix.

  6. Show review status as finished to the originator

    Bug: I have an issue where I am not receiving "finished review" notifications from some reviewers. However I am receiving notifications for comments.

    As a feature request, the originator should be able to track the status of a review. Currently only the reviewer can see the status.

    The status should be available for all reviewers. Ideally on the Share panel.

  7. Bring back confirmations

    Why no confirmation when a shared file is read,
    This is one of the main reasons we subscribed, and now the feature has been removed?
    is it coming back?

  8. Shared Document Access removable feature

    having an access removable button would benefit all account users who shares files with other individual. By having an option to remove a person from viewing a document you've shared with them would give us great ability to deny people from viewing this document. For example: If you've shared a document with "John Doe and *" you should be able to remove "John Doe and * would still have access to the document rather than having to "unshare" the entire document .

  9. notify user if file is already in use

    Prompt or notify user if a PDF file is already open. Currently the file just opens and locks both users from being able to save the file.

  11. Private commenting on a shared PDF in Document Cloud

    I sometimes need to generate a share link to numerous participants to a PDF for commenting without but would like participants to feel free to annotate safe in the knowledge that their annotations are private and won't be visible to other recipients of the link.

    Would be great to have another little toggle appear after you've said you want commenting that you want to have the comments visible to everyone | only the document owner.

  12. Enable Google Shared Drives via Acrobat DC

    Access to Google drive is enabled via ADC--great! But please add shared drive access as is possible with DropBox to allow collaboration not just work flow signatures.

  13. Problems with getting comments - people without adobe think they need to log in

    I really like the ability to share documents via the cloud but we have issues using it in our company. People who we share with don't see the "guest option" and refuse to get an adobe account and thus don't comment or request we share the original with them. Thus we have had problems with adoption and had to revert to sharing through mail. I think you have tried to make people get an account unknowingly this is discouraging adoption across a wider audience. I suggest a quick fix with the visual design to make sure that both options are…

  14. Expiry date for PDF files Share link

    To secure PDF files, we do password protection and share via link.
    However, once file is shared via link, this link is still valid for ages and anyone who knows the password can download.
    Can we put a expiry date for this sharing link so that we can control the PDF files expiry protect our files. This will some what restrict any 3rd party websites/apps trying to remove password from PDF

  16. I have Microsoft Outlook and I send all my PDF attachments thru this email.

    I have Microsoft Outlook and I send all my PDF attachments thru this email. Your October 2018 update no longer recognizes Outlook default that automatically sends an attachment to an email.

    Now we must every time get diverted and click on attachment and continue to attach every single PDF in an email to Outlook. This creates a lot of work for no valid reason. EVERY user of Outlook is now going thru these extra steps for no valid reason. STOP IT.

    I am surprised that Adobe management who probably use Microsoft Outlook have themselves not wondered why they are now…

  17. Disable Download

    When sharing links through the Send for Review feature, have an option to prohibit downloads, copying, or editing beyond comments etc. More control over this feature will prevent draft documents from floating around.

  18. Receive error - cannot connect to the Review Server 13.107.136.9

    This is currently an error that we are experiencing. We are doing shared reviews and this was working fine several weeks ago. We were able to previously send out pdf's for review but now we are receiving this error.

  19. Unable to use share function

    After clicking on send button it says I need to be connected to the internet. I have shut down and restarted everything. Our IT department looked at it and says our settings are all correct and that it looks like it is on the Adobe end.
