    • Tick box in comments disappeared after last update

      I always used the tick box while reviewing, using a filter so that comments I processed also disappeared. It was an easy and intuitive way of editing the source text with the help of the comments in the PDF. After the last update, the tick box is gone and now hidden. You have to click the dots in the top right corner of the comment, then select 'Set status' and then click the status. That's THREE clicks instead of one. NOT user friendly, NOT intuitive, NO improvement. Please give me back my tick box!

      • 2 steps to add check to comments - Build: 19.8.20071.303822

        In previous versions of Acrobat I was able to Check a comment (typically once I had made an edit to my InDesign doc). By setting the filter to show unchecked comments only I was systematically able to go through a set of clients edits. In the new version of Acrobat you have removed the ability to just click to check a comment. I now have to open a drop down menu and select it. This is really annoying when you have a large document with over 100 comments (as I regularly do).

        Please return the simple check box to the…

        • Annotation appearance dict missing ExtGState

          Acrobat Pro DC 2019.008.20071, Mac and Windows.

          Open any file or create a new one. Right click on the page and select "Add sticky note." Save the file. At this point the file contains an invalid appearance dict for the sticky note. The stream uses a graphics state /GS0 which is not available in the Resources dict of the annotation.

          Worse, if the page happened to already have a /GS0 graphics state, that will now be used for the annotation.

            • Acrobat Comments is now a mess

              There used to be lines in between each comment that help you see where one comment ended and the next one started. The new comments panel design is a mess that makes it hard to distinguish which comment is checked and which is not everything just flows together in one long indistinguishable mess. And for God’s sake bring back the old method of checking off a comment.

              • Big: Filter status not working as intended

                When filtering comments by ‘completed’ and then actually selecting a comment as having become ‘completed’ it is not removed from the list of visible comments. You need to go to filters, turn it off and back on again to clear the ‘completed’ comments. Very frustrating. It’s worked as intended before this latest update.

                  • 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 ?

                    • Filter by unchecked still shows checked comments that I made.

                      When I set comments to only show unchecked comments, but then I reply to an unchecked comment, then check both that comment and my comment, it won't filter these newly checked comments.

                      I have to choose "show all comments" then filter by unchecked again for it to work. Please fix.

                      • Hotkeys for highlighter and highlighter color

                        Hey could you guys make a shortcut for highlighting on PDFs that would be GREAT HELP! This is for Adobe Reader DC. There is no shortcut for highlighter and highlighter color. It would make reading PDFs faster, more interactive, and easier to read especially on Desktop/Laptops.

                              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.

                            • highlight

                              PLZ offer a "read mode" that highlighting without a comment pop-up!!!

                              For many times when I'm reading I'd like to highlight some words but have nothing to comment- however it creates an empty pop-up... When I sometimes have to find out a useful comment I have to go through hundreds of empty comments in the comment list.

                              • Can't select a text annotation - Acrobat Pro 2017

                                In Acrobat X a text annotation (created with the Typewriter tool) could easily be selected by merely clicking on it. In Acrobat Pro 2017 there seems to be no way to select it. This is a real show stopper for me since I often need to delete or copy/paste a group of selected line, text, and other annotations.

                                  This was a valuable feature on previous Acrobat versions and was dropped in Acrobat Pro DC.

                                  • Tag + notify reviewers of comments + replies in Shared Commenting review

                                    I'd love a way to tag reviewers in a comment—or in a reply to an existing comment—in a review PDF (hosted internally) that's set up for Shared Commenting, so that they may be notified via email of the comment in the document.

                                    Some reviewers proof the document early, make a comment, and then never revisit the shared review PDF, so if someone replies to their comment, they do not see it. That has left the onus of communicating the missed replies and being a go-between on a single person in our organization.

                                    • Acrobat Pro Comments Column Colour Change

                                      Hi all

                                      (Mac Acrobat Pro - all up to date)

                                      In the comments column the selected comment goes a slightly darker grey.

                                      For me this still does not make this comment stand out enough.

                                      Is there a way to change this to something more prevalent?

                                      Thanks in advance

                                      DC

                                        Environment: Mac OS 10.13.6
                                        Acrobat Pro DC version 2019.010.20064
                                        Build: 19.10.20064.311007

                                        Steps:
                                        1. Open 2 PDFs and tile them vertically
                                        2. Activate the Comment app in both documents.
                                        3. Collapse the Comment sidebars on both documents
                                        4. Select some text and click on the Highlight tool in the commenting toolbar
                                        5. Observe that both Comment sidebars expand automatically (undesirable behavior).
                                        6. Type Command+W to close PDFs without saving.

                                        Result:
                                        Acrobat crashes.

                                        Expected:
                                        Documents both close without a crash.

                                        • 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.
