  1. 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)…

  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

  3. Allow default setting to allow close of current tab when multiple tabs are open

    There is an option to always close all tabs in the dialog pop up but no option to just close the current tab by default when X'ing out on the top right of the window. I would like to be able to just close the current tab by default.

  4. HOME/TOOLS startup screen disable request

    Please allow diable of the HOME/TOOLS startup screen. I have disabled it in the preferences and it is still there on launch. This is a very unprofessional looking feature and is extremely annoying to professional users like me.

  6. Please remove the prechecked box on installing other software.

    During download: The pre-checked boxes prompting installing McAfee or other software is a very shady process. Most people aren't paying attention to that and accidentally install it on top of any other anti virus that they have and that can cause so many issues. Please consider removing the pre-check and allow those that pay attention to decide for themselves.

  7. Please add back the toggle for "Classic Adobe"

    Please add the toggle to allow users to switch back and forth from "Classic Adobe" and the new version to our settings. Classic Adobe is much more user friendly for keeping your docs organized while the modern version is good for template editing. The new version is just not as easy to visualize your work and stay organized. The search feature is not as useful either. Please add this back as soon as possible.

    It was very helpful to have the ability to use both versions.

  8. document cloud progress bar

    While there are increasing numbers on symmetrical highspeed circuits there are still those of us who utilize a lower speed and asymmetrical connections (ADSL, fixed wireless, etc). Watching a circle spin and having to continually check back for for 30-45 min as a document uploads is not overly helpful. A progress bar showing a percentage or even a simple "x of y Kb" uploaded would be a vast improvement over the current situation. For a bit of reference 50 miles west of the US Capitol building in Washington DC our best ADSL speed is 7M/0.6M and fixed wireless speed is…

  9. Enable width reduction of "output preview" window

    The output preview ("op") window has a standard width that can not be underrun. As the window is very big, it would help if you could narrow the window more than it is possible at the moment. Therefore you would have more space on the monitor for your document itself. In my case with my older monitor, the window uses nearly one-third of the space of the whole screen and annoys me very often.

  10. Acrobat Pro 2020 is Uggggg-ly! And User Interface Worse

    This new version looks so childish! Not professional in appearance at all.

    AND... too many steps to digitally sign a document! It used to be so easy! Can't you revert back to what worked smoothly???????

    I truly detest working in Acrobat now.

  11. 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.

  12. Scrolling preferences window (Windows)

    Currently the preferences window is very hard to use and frankly, broken:

    You can't scroll with a touchpad.

    You can't scroll with a touchscreen.

    You can't scroll with a mousewheel.

    Scrolling over a combo box changes the setting >:(

    Content doesn't scroll when you drag the scrollbar!

    The preferences window cannot resize small enough for smaller screens.

    Overall: infurating.

  14. Dialog box opens on the wrong screen

    When trying to customize the Quick Tools toolbar, the dialog box opened on a different monitor than the application. I didn't realize that and force quit the application because it looked like it froze. Only after reopening did I realize what was happening.
    It would be nice if it consistently opened in the same monitor the application is open in. I tried this with the display maximized and not maximized and it didn't make a difference.

  16. unable to verify subscription status

    Adobe Acrobat Standard keeps saying connection status check your internet connection can't verify subscription. Password is correct. Spoke with support and because we have Trend AV apparently this is a known issue. Need a fix ASAP

  17. Alert for Enterprise Console.

    (Enterprise) Need an alert on or from the Adobe portal, when the number of users mismatches the quota number in each of the Adobe groups. the mismatch would indicate that a user was added or removed.

  18. Red icons are LOUD

    I see you changed to red icons recently, WOW is all I can say. I have a lot of .pdf files saved on my desktop and it looks like fireworks going off.

    I liked the black better. much easier on the eyes. Thanks for your consideration

  19. A well designed nice looking dark reading mode for the windows version like ios and android

    A well designed nice looking dark reading mode for the windows version like ios and android. the ios and android modes have a nice simple dark mode switch much like many apps and operating systems of today now have. I find it's clunky and outdated to still have the only option for changing PDF document viewing options to a night mode-ish for reading at night only in the accessibility options.. a simple switch for on off would be VERY overdue on this relatively expensive product. I find it rather odd that it still does not despite the mobile options already…
