  1. Comments: bug with superscript text formating

    For a few months now, when I apply superscript format to comment texts, the correct format appears, but only until I save the comment, at which time subscript is applied instead.

  2. Put comment filtering back to continuous

    It used to be that the comment filter would continuously update. You ruined that feature two years ago. I am waiting for you to put it back. Dealing with hundreds of comments is now clunky and painful.

  3. Keyboard shortcut to change the status to complete for review

    Would be very helpful instead of clicking through a hundret sub-menus, which is very time consuming if you have a lots of changes to do.

  4. Autosave failed and more

    Hi, I copy paste here a conversation I had yesterday with one of your help service agent (chat). It makes it quicker than re-writing everything. In summary, the automatic file saving failed on me. Indeed, when Adobe Acrobat DC software crashed, I had to close it and when reopening it, it said unable to reopen 3 of the files. I was not too worried since I had saved the most important doc under a new name one hour or so before and would have to redo just a few revision comments. But to my surprise, when I opened it, although…

  5. Animation in Adobe Acrobat and Indesign without flash

    Adobe acrobat and indesign, without flash player, are not so powerful and as attractive as before. Everything looks so plain and regular, animation and rich media oftentimes aren't working properly or worked at all. It's the opposite of progress.

  6. Why would you set 'done' button to mean close the document?

    I was done with the comments window, not with the document! Please change this to close or preferably let us close the way we always have.

  8. I'm logged into my account, but my comments show as someone else.

    I log into my work account and when I create a comment, it's listed under my boss's name instead of my name.
    Contact me for more info.

  9. There is no way to just print the comments in my PDF document. I cannot print underlined or highlighted comments.

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. There is no way to print just the comments in my PDF. If I highlight or underline something in my PDF, I cannot print just the comments. I can extract pages containing the comments, but they are not in a properly formatted form. Can you fix this issue ASAP?

  10. Ability to have a pen or circle annotation tool locked open for a user to mark something in an Acrobat file.

    I have a PDF with the image of the human body that I would like tossed to my clients that they can circle with the oval or draw annotation tool to indicate where on their body they are experiencing pain. They should not have to know how to open the commenting tool and find the oval or drawing function. I want it to be in place ready for them to use.

  11. Comment Function - text shows <100% transparent

    Text entered using the Commenting feature shows up with some level of transparency less than 100% - I would guess it is 50-60% transparent. And I can't adjust it to show 100%. in order to get 100% black or colored text, I need to use the Editing feature.

  12. Comment display filtering to hide unwanted items could be simpler. Also, a filtering in progress indicator is needed

    A file may have many types of comments, many colors, many authors, etc. If one wants to hide only one variety (e.g., the color red), one has to select all but the red dot and then press the Apply button for the filtered selections.
    This would be simpler if one could select only the red dot and press a new Exclude button/function. Further, Apply and Exclude could be combined to mimic an electrical (ON | OFF) switch.

    For very large files with many comments, filtering consumes a lot of time. For shared files on servers, the time is magnified by…

  13. When copying a Comment using ... Copy Text, and then pasting to a new comment, do not add newline

    I have an existing comment, and I use ... Copy Text to copy it.

    Then I go to another part of my PDF file, select the text and right click to use "Add Note to Text". In the comment text box, I right click and choose Paste Text (or alternatively, I press CTRL-V to use the default Windows "paste" mechanism).

    My new comment ends up with the copied comment text PLUS an extra carriage return (cursor is on a newline). That is NOT what I wanted! Why does it add the extra carriage return? If I am just trying to…

  14. Allow preference to always open desired toolbars especially the comment toolbar

    I copied the following because this user said it better than me...except he was referencing Reader, not Acrobat Pro. I am an Acrobat Pro DC subscriber. I relied on this feature in Pro 8.1 until recently upgrading.

    COPIED: I almost always use adobe ACROBAT in exactly the same way: I mostly read scientific papers and use the comment tools to highlight and/or make notes for myself. This means that almost every time I open up ACROBAT, I will want the comment tools open and it's irritating to have to re-open the comment tools every single time. #FirstWorldProblems I know, but…

  15. turn off finger input when using pen

    When using the pen, allow the user to scroll, etc, by using a finger touch. At the very least, make scrolling with a two finger touch possible. Otherwise, you need to keep switching tools when reading through and commenting on the PDF.

  16. "Draw Polygon" tool - automate it

    I often use the draw polygon tool so the text is precisely identifed. To draw the polygon, as you know, I have to draw a line, stop, draw the next line, stop, draw the 3rd line, stop, etc. If I want to highlight that same text, I can simply start at one spot and drag my mouse over all the text, which is very convenient. Why cannot the draw polygon tool have a similar function? I would select "draw polygon", put my cursor at starting place, drag to ending place, and the polygon would be drawn.

  17. Option Return to enter a command?

    Wow this is counter-intuitive. Shift return or command return on Mac, please!

  18. 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.

  19. 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!
