  1. Spell check as you type

    I'd like to have spell check AS I TYPE while writing post-it note comments in Acrobat. Every other form field in the world checks spelling as you type...but not Acrobat. Why? This is a ridiculous product limitation!

  2. Comments shall not get auto-locked

    I am working with Linde Engineering India (Linde AG) as Engineering consultant. Our daily routine job is to review various suppliers' documentation to meet the client requirement. Supplier submits the document which we review in .pdf using commenting tool. Previously we were using Acrobat 9 for this in Windows7. Now we are using Windows 10 for last more than 1 year and in that, we are only allowed to use Acrobat standard DC Version 2015.006.30033. In this Adobe Acrobat version, we are not able to edit the comments made by our peers / sub-ordinates before sending it back to Supplier

  3. Crash when commenting on PDF portfolio file


    1. Create a PDF portfolio from any two PDF files

    2. Right click on one of the files on the left and choose Open File

    3. Go to the Comment tool

    4. Click Add Text Comment from the toolbar (the single line one)

    5. Type in a comment anywhere

    6. Click X to close the tab while the caret is still blinking

    Expected:
    Asks you to save like it does with a non-portfolio PDF file.

    Actual:
    Freezes and then crashes. Reproducible every time, occurs on multiple Windows accounts.

    After typing, if you press Esc or do anything else to move focus off the comment, the comment…

  4. Multiple Custom Tool Sets with Same Tools - Different Properties for Each Tool

    For work I use multiple tools to add comments to PDFs. I have created a custom tool set with the tools I need to use the most. We are required to use specific colors depending on what we are commenting on. It would make it so much easier if I could make custom sets (all with the tools I use) and have each one be different color schemes.

    A few examples of this are below:

    Custom Tool Set #1
    Highligher – Color/Green
    Text Box – Border/Red; Fill/Green; Text Color/Blue
    Arrow – Color/Green
    Rectangle – Color/Green

    Custom Tool Set #2
    Highligher…

  5. Allow input of special characters in comments and option to display them

    Allow special characters in comments such as zero width non-joiner, non-breaking space, non-breaking hyphen, forced line-breaks (not paragraph breaks), etc. and provide an option to display them like InDesign’s “Display Hidden Characters”.

    It is an indispensable feature for workflows where copy editors and typesetters use PDF comments to correct texts that will then be imported into InDesign for review.

    Furthermore, comment text fields should allow invoking macOS Emoji & Symbols palette (see https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/mchlp1560/mac) to easier input.

  6. Default paste for text into a comment field should UNFORMATTED TEXT

    This is the biggest single thing that reduces my productivity in Acrobat DC. So often I need to paste some text from inside the PDF into the comment field. Suppose the text is white font on a black background, what is that going to look like in the comment box? In what universe would retaining the formatting as the default make any sense at all?

  8. Make Changing of Comment Type Possible

    Since InDesign CC2019 has the ability to import PDF comments for quicker apply of text corrections, it would be of enormous help, to be able to change the comment type in Acrobat.

    Some proof readers e.g. use the markup comment type to change text. But InDesign doesn’t allow the markup comment type to be executed with a simple klick on »Apply«.
    Or they use »delete text« comment type, althought they wanted to change text. But in InDesign »delete text« simply deletes, but doesn’t insert the comment’s text.

    So if I’d be able to change the type of a comment easily,…

  10. Info bulle

    There are tooltips on all software helpers, which you can activate or not. But when it comes to making a tooltip yourself, nothing allows it ... When we have small references on a text (for example by exposing, 1, 2, ...), this it would be really useful to be able to introduce the possibility of adding a tooltip there when the mouse passes over the small number. Currently, it's impossible, or a real hassle !!

  13. Comments Highlight needs to be a different colour

    The Grays are too close to each other. A choice would be good. I raised this years ago and got a reply saying 'good idea we will pursue this'.

    Very difficult to see which comment you are on if you have 200 etc

    Please sort asap

  14. Keep Tool Selected - we need it back please

    There used to be a great feature where you could click a box to "keep tool selected" so you keep using the same tool, over and over again without clicking on the Icon again and again and again. It was especially useful when reviewing a large document where you wanted to highlight several passages or for adding text, etc.

  16. Add option to Expand/collapse at the comment level

    Acrobat (years ago) had this ability, I believe.

    Currently, we can expand/collapse all comments.
    We can also expand/collapse comments for an entire page.

    Please add an option at the comment level that would expand/collapse the replies to a specific comment.

    When a page has 30 markups, and each markup has 5 replies (yes, this has happened :-)), there are now 150 comments showing in the comment list for just that single page.

    Being able to collapse a comment thread would be a massive improvement in usability of the commenting feature, I believe.

  17. No Longer Able to Keep Tool Selected

    You are not able to keep a tool selected any longer. If you use it once, then it reverts back to the cursor. Stamps, highlighter, comments, all of them. This had been a feature in Acrobat since I can remember and all of a sudden they removed it. WHY? Bring it back. There are several other people on here complaining of the same thing but if they don't respond, they say the issue is resolved. It is not in any way "resolved". Please bring back asap.

  19. Bug Report: Selection boxes disappear when dragging multiple annotations

    Summary:
    Selection boxes disappear when one of the selected annotations is a line--Upon moving the multiple selection with a cursor, any annotation selected before the last line annotation was selected will not have a blue selection box. This creates a very confusing user experience because it looks like you're only moving the line annotation.

    Steps to reproduce issue:
    - Select multiple annotations
    - Include a line annotation in the multiple selection
    - Click and drag the selection

    Expected result:
    - All selected annotations should have a blue selection box representing the move

    Observed result:
    - Only the last selected line…

  20. Make commenting fonts lockable

    Please make commenting fonts lockable so that when you share a PDF, someone else can see your comments in a specific font. The default font (Segoe) is not great for in-depth text editing, as some characters, like curly quote marks and apostrophes, are not as easily distinguishable from their straight counterparts as they would be in serif fonts.
