  2. Not able to filter in comments with Acrobat 2019

    Document made in Acrobat Pro DC 2018 and sent for review.
    Came back with multiple comments. Those of them that got fixed got marked. Then I could come back later and show only unmarked comments. It works just fine in 2018 version. But with New Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20080 it does not work. As soon as i click on the filter button to sort the comments the whole Acrobat gets jammed. I have tried several times, also restarted computer. So there must be something wrong here.

    Hi ,
    Thanks for reaching out to us. We regret the inconvenience caused to you.
    We have tried at our end to reproduce the issue but we are unable to do so.
    Can you provide the review link of the review file or a local copy of the review file with all the comments to investigate further ?

  3. Hide "comment list"

    How do you hide the 'comment list"? It pops up every time I try to make something and it doesn't automatically adjust the document and takes up so much of the screen. Very annoying.

  4. mark up tools:

    what happened to the old mark up tools? highlight text with note, delete text (red line through), etc??
    I used those extensively previously, and this new version is pretty useless without them

    Hi, Thanks for reaching out to us.
    We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    Can you use Strikethrough text or Add Note to replace text to create the red line through .
    If you have any specific requirement of a new annot , please let us know the exact use case for the same .
    If the use case is not met by existing annots, we shall add this requirement to our product backlog.

  5. When attempting to enter a text box in the top RH corner of a document the tool covers the area the document I am editing

    When attempting to enter a text box in the top RH corner of a document the tool covers the area the document I am editing. Have the tools we want to use permanently displayed

    revert back to version 9 format.

    Hi User, Thanks for reaching out to us.
    The workaround for this is to click on the text properties icon bar to hide the properties so that you can easily see the text box.
    Please let us know if this works for you.

    For the second ask, can you explain the issue again as we are not clear with the ask here.

    Hi User, Thanks for reaching out to us.
    Are you facing this issue only for highlight or for other annots as well ?

    Can you uncheck the commenting preference “Automatically open comment pop-ups for comment other than notes” and try to create another highlight. Please let us know if this resolves the issue for you.

  7. highlighter malfunctions and is far too large

    When I go to highlight text, the highlighter is the size of about half a page. Other forums suggested that this had to do with formatting by acrobat, but it happens in all documents. This feature is virtually useless. Perhaps its a bug that could use fixing.

  8. Comments aren't filtering correctly

    When I filter by name, not all of the comments that user contributed are showing in the right-hand pane. It's really problematic because those comments are being skipped over and not getting a response.

  9. Comment popup text very difficult to Select and Copy to clipboard

    Open an existing comment bubble popup that has text in it. Select (highlight) the text. Now just move the mouse cursor slightly outside of the comment popup boundary. The text you highlighted becomes unhighlighted! I can’t even express how maddeningly frustrating this is. We have hundreds of edits a day that we need to copy the comment text out of Acrobat.

    We are CONSTANTLY selecting the text, hitting COMMAND+C, switching over to a different program to paste, only to realize that either nothing gets pasted in or the text from the previous edit is still on the clipboard. I finally…

  11. Comment list takes too long to load

    Getting comment list to show in Acrobat DC takes way too much time. It's a drag. At least on Mac OS.

  12. Freehand Highlighter

    I recently discovered the new feature in Acrobat Pro DC that allows me to use the highlight tool to highlight "text" in a scanned pdf that has not been ocr'd. I tried to use it today but it would not work. Was the awesome feature removed? If so it should be brought back!

  13. How can I look at previous versions of a PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?

    I am trying to move my colleagues away from .docx to .pdf. Unfortunately we often have to review older version of a file that has been modified. How can we do this in DC? Can we?

  15. add text comment - right justify

    when adding a simple text comment, there is no functionality of right justifying the text (or anything other than left justify for that matter). It would be great to be able to do that, much like one can if one uses a text box comment.

    Different color option is available by using the color picker to change the color of the Pen.
    The color picker is available in the tool bar. Please try that and let us know if that works for you.

  17. Korean comment does not work properly

    I don't know if it happens in languages other than Korean (at least not in English).
    If I try to modify a comment, the last character I type is appended at the back.
    For example, if I wrote "Hello world" and tried to add "Hi " at the front, last character "i" is added at the back so it becomes "HHello worldi". (This does not happen in English as I said)

  19. A user suggestion for improving Adobe Acrobat capabilities: Extracting all of the highlighted texts in one step

    As you are well aware, the users of Adobe Acrobat (or similar products) usually apply ‘Highlight Text’ to highlight or summarize parts of the text or the book that they are reading in PDF format.

    After finishing to read the text, if the user can have the ability to extract (in one step) all the highlighted parts in the format of a MS Word or other PDF file; this can be very handy and helpful; since this way the user can easily make an outlined summary of the read text or book ready for future references.

    I wonder if the…
