  1. Sequential Review

    Allow to set a pathway for the review of a document by 2 or more people so there is an order to the review process and not multiple people reviewing and commenting at once.

  2. Add option to open documents in presentation mode

    It is very common to share PDF documents during a presentation, and Acrobat Reader always attempts to open the document with large toolbars that interfere with the presentation. It is not sufficient to be able to set a given document to open in full screen, as whether or not a document needs to be opened in full screen depends on where it's being opened from. This needs to be available as an Open Action like page number or zoom level.

  4. 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?

  5. Expiration Date for Shared Documents, Links, and Signatures

    Provide an option to set an expiration date on shared documents, Links, Signatures, and Files.
    Creates an option to chose an expiration date for the share & collaboration to end. For example, deadlines are necessary for premiers and limited short run editions. Dates that Expire would be useful when users want to stop sharing rough drafts with numerous individuals who may be collaborating on a marketing campaign.
    Any files that can be shared are automatically given the option to add expiration dates. After the expiration period is over the links, documents, files, and signatures options would no longer be accessible.

  6. Bug: Shared comments appear deleted for some, not at all for others. Cannot retrieve.

    Using Share for Review on DC, with several reviewers. I, the owner, made 2 comments. The next day 2 colleagues (A and B) tell me they have commented. I open and see nothing. At 5 am I get an email from Adobe that 1 commenter (B) made 40 comments. I look again and see nothing, and realize there is a problem. Commenter A shares a screenshot of her view in a browser, and it shows "[owner] deleted this comment 13 hours ago". I never deleted any comments, and there seems to be no way to view or retrieve deleted comments.…

    Dear Customer.

    Thanks for reaching out to us. We are working at our best to resolve your issue. Meanwhile could you please help us with the below info.

    1. Are you also not able to see the comments on Web(Browser)
    2. Issue appears for specific file or on every files.
    3. Also facing any error while posting comments.
    4. Also please check if any filter is enabled in Shared file to show only specific comments.

  7. Bug - "Send File..." Prompts for email app selection every time, no 'Remember' checkbox

    Adobe Acrobat 2020 when selecting "Send File..." displays a prompt "Send by email" with a prompt to select either the Default email client or Webmail. Every...time...

    Adobe Reader 2020 when selecting "Send File..." displays a dialogue the initial time with an option to "Remember my choice" to select Default email application or Webmail. If the application and
    "Remember..." option is selected this dialogue does not display again and future PDF emailing drops directly in to Outlook.

    The paid Acrobat software needs to behave like the free Reader by not having an errant pointlessly repetitive prompt every single time to attach…

  8. Re-share doucments that have been unshared

    It would nice to be able to unshare a document, make changes to it, and reshare it again without losing comments & suggested edits made from previous users that were invited to it. I currently to manually copy/paste client comments from a previously shared file into a new one any time a partial change is made to the doc but old comments still need to be addressed or referenced.

  9. Prevent modifications to PDF files and forwarding of files when sharing as an attachments in emails

    Prevent modifications to PDF files and forwarding of files when sharing as an attachments in emails. For example, Microsoft allows encryption of a select file formats through Outlook that can prevent further forwarding and editing of the file when attached to an email. This feature would be a great addition to protecting and securing PDF files when the option of cloud access is not feasible.

  11. Cannot send document as email

    I have been trying to send a document as an email for over an hour and it gives me an error message. Thank God this is not an emergency. Your system charges and then it does not deliver.

  13. use compare report and send it for shared review with old and new file side-by-side view

    I have 2 pdfs, version 1 and version 2. Using compare pdf, I can able to view the changes made and save the compare report and see side-by-side.

    But, when I send the compare report for shared review, but the reviewers can see only the new file with comments and can not see side-by-side on browser.

    Enable side-by-side view for shared review through browser. So the reviewers can easily identify the changes from version 1 to version 2 and it is easy for them to review.

  14. Automatically delete shared URL of PDF after x number of days

    When sharing sensitive documents via Links it would be helpful to set a rule to automatically delete the URLS after x amount of days.

    Right now, after sharing a PDF online via URL, we have to manually delete these links user by user.

  15. "SEND TO EMAIL" SHOULD STAY IN EMAIL - NOT RETURN TO ACROBAT

    I had a hard time describing this problem (or feature change), so I hope this makes sense. In previous versions of Acrobat Pro, clicking the email icon would open a new email window with the attachment -- and stay there. Now, it opens a new email window and immediately jumps back to Acrobat. How annoying! Why should I have to click back to email, when I just told Acrobat I wanted to attach to email?

  17. Redline, Strikethrough and Track Changes

    Need the ability to redline, add formatted text (just like track changes in MS Word) and easily and efficiently strikethrough. In the update as of April 2021 it is a lot of different clicks to configure a redline, strikethrough, adding text and comments. Right now you have to create a redline from scratch and confirgure text when it should be automatic or done with one click.

    From a legal doc standpoint this would make docs easier and more efficient to collaborate on and easier to share instead of converting PDFs to Word docs, tracking changes and converting back to a…

  18. Please bring back sharing mutiple files

    You have taken away the ability to share mutiple files on the newest download of Acrobat Pro. I use to press the share button via tools in the previous Acrobat Pro and you could select mutiple files and even add more if you had forgot one. Now it only allows one file at at a time which seems pointless and time consuming. I don't want to combine files like I was told to do by an adobe help assistant as files are separate but apart of the same artwork package. Please bring it back as it was so easy and…

  20. Specify Order of Review by Recipients of Shared Portfolios or PDF documents

    In this age of social distancing and teleworking, having the ability to use Adobe Acrobat sharing of portfolios or PDF documents for the review and approval of organizational documents provides an additional reason for companies and organizations to use Adobe Acrobat in their everyday operations. The need is to have the ability to select the order in which a shared document or portfolio is viewed/commented by emailed addressees so that the review process can meet organizational processes/steps.
