  1. Request to revert back the color of icon from black to red for Acrobat Standard DC

    Please revert back the icon color of Acrobat Standard DC to red or any other color but black. The black color has poor visibility and not eye friendly.

    Request to take it on priory basis if possible as its slow down working speed as we loose the visibility of the icon on taskbar

  2. Bug: Shadows disappear on Windows 10 explorer windows

    Adobe Acrobat DC keeps turning off the shadows of my explorer windows. Changing the theme in Acrobat doesn't help.

    Workaround if you encounter this problem:


    1. Windows key + r

    2. Run: sysdm.cpl

    3. Advanced

    4. on Performance -> Settings

    5. Under Visual Effects tab -> Show shadows under windows -> Apply

    Probably repeat after restarting Acrobat

  4. Extend recently used folders (not files)

    On Acrobat's Home page, selecting "My Computer" shows the 5 most recently used folders. It would be more helpful if this was doubled to 10.

  5. Bug: Toolbars not drawn properly on macOS Big Sur Dev Beta

    The toolbars in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC are not rendered at all when initially launching the app in macOS Big Sur Dev Beta 2. Resizing the window (including entering full screen) causes the bars to redraw correctly. Also reporting this to Apple.

  7. zooming and scrolling

    How about rolling the mouse wheel to zoom in/out and hold down either left/right button to scroll a document.

    Currently DC is set up very unconvenient. I have select zoom and then scroll and then zoom and then scroll as I progress down a documents. It just break the flow.

  8. Bug: Lack of text contrast in Navigation lists with Dark Theme

    I use the Dark Theme for accessibility because of light sensitivity.

    When using Dark Theme, many of the Navigation Panes (including Bookmarks, Content, Order, Tags, and probably others) display black text on a dark grey background, instead of properly switching to light colored text. I think there are other parts of the UI that have this same problem, but I can't enumerate all of them.

    The lack of contrast makes these parts of the UI effectively unusable in Dark Theme. Using low screen brightness (again, because of light sensitivity) exacerbates the issue. The bug is very easy to reproduce because…

  10. Narration feature added to documents.

    A "Narrator" feature added to documents, files, and forms. This would allow users with impaired vision to interact with Windows, and Mac in a way that isn't commonly found. In this way, languages may be learned as well.

  12. remove "Try Acrobat PC Pro" button

    Please please give us an option to remove the terrible "Try Acrobat PC Pro" blue button in the tabs bar. There is already more than enough ads for it everywhere: in the tools sidebar on the right, on the home screen, etc.

    This button is taking up so much space that could be used to show more tabs! I'm so used to using Adobe and I like it but I think I will switch to another reader if this button is not removed. I even tried installing an older version of acrobat (which was a pain just to find it)…

  14. Saving personal window layouts

    Hi Adobe,

    Mostly I am using Acrobat to check Output. I am total angry because Acrobat doesn't remember my last window setting. I have to always to click 'Print Productions' button and - it is the most boring - I have to always click to smart triangle at left mid to open left sidebar and have to click to open Page thumbnails.

    Acrobat should remember the last state or some setting menu to turn on my favourite window layout..

    Very thx

  15. Highlight Text

    When you have to highlight text and you want to change color you need to go to: Secondary button, Properties, Select the color that is by default and then choose a new color.

    I suggest that when selecting the Highlight Text tool a side tab be enabled that allows us to change colors. Attached example of the suggestion

  16. Make it easy to remove pop-up toolbar associated with pan tool

    Even though it vanishes after a few seconds, the new menu bar that pops up every time I use the "pan" tool is very annoying. Why in the world is it not easier to remove the pop-up option? I'd like to dock it, remove it, whatever. When I'm panning through a document that's several hundred pages and have to wait a few seconds every time I use that pan tool, it's not only annoying but reduces productivity.

  17. BUG / Expand to see Thumbnails / Acrobat 2020 Standard (PC)

    This is a bug. When I go over the vertical bar (column) on the left side of the window to make the Thumbnails, Booksmarks and Attachments icons visible, I have to be in the perfect spot to click on it. Otherwise, Acrobat won't let me click even though I'm on top of the bar. Please fix - this should be easy to both reproduce and fix.

  19. Remove "save as" window

    When I click "save as" it takes me to an intermediate window where I can pick a folder or cloud location to save in. This window is a complete waste of a window because the next window serves the same function. In the second window I can also choose a folder. Please provide a means to turn this window off. It will save time for your customers. To make thinks simple, you can add the creative cloud option to the Quick access section.

  20. Separate Adobe Acrobat subscription license from Others

    My adobe acrobat pro is paid by a company who requires me to write a report for them (paid per document) while my adobe photography plan is personal subscription.

    It's not easy to switch between accounts in Photoshop but worse in Adobe Acrobat. If you are currently login with your other account. the options are only: "Buy, Try for free, or Quit." Why there isn't "sign in with different account" or at least an option to sign out>> sign-in as in Photoshop welcome page?
