  1. 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

  2. Recent documents keep disappearing

    Links to my recent documents keep disappearing from the Recent list. The message says: "There aren't any recent files". Acrobat is currently up to date on my Windows 10 laptop. This is happening sporadically, with recent docs appearing as expected for some time, then vanishing without explanation, sometimes while I'm looking at the list Acrobat Pro DC.

  5. BUG Report: Cannot Remove Share Button

    I've found some various post on how to remove the Share Button from the Tool Bar, but those menu option are not in my (new) Acrobat Por 2020. So I'm assuming it is a BUG that they have disappeared with the latest version that I happened to recently download.

    The waste of space with this unnecessary button is pretty excessive. Please fix this BUG ASAP so I can load my needed icons.

    And so far I've not seen anything all that impressive with the latest version. So If this Share Button BUG cannot be resolved, I may be requesting a…

  6. 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.

  7. Add option to use file name instead of TITLE in the Adobe Acrobat Reader

    It is difficult to figure out which file is which when viewing multiple files with the same TITLE. The person using the reader is powerless to change the title.

    PLEASE provide a global preference / setting in the Reader,preferences to have the Reader use the file name all the time.

  8. 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.

  9. Fix the UI so it is not stupid

    The UI for Acrobat Pro DC is absolutely horrible and non-intuitive. It actually takes me longer to do everything because I have to click into multiple areas on the screen instead of just the sidebar (e.g., to recognize text, I now have to mouse into the side bar, then move to the upper bar).

    That also assumes I can find where the feature/tool now resides. I have to constantly search for it.

    The Save As dialog breaks Windows user training and muscle memory because the big blue button is not “Save” or “okay” as expected. It is “Choose a Different…

  10. Return the Acrobat interface to something professional

    Return the Acrobat interface to something professional, similar to InDesign, Photoshop, etc, instead of the childish and dysfunctional mess.

  11. Allow resizing of side panel (tab order, etc.)

    Please allow resizing/expansion of the side panel used for formatting and tab order, etc. There is a horizontal scroll bar on the bottom, but if you have longer field names, it is inconvenient to have to scroll back and forth. For those with wider monitors, this should be expandable horizontally or a pop-out window that is expandable.

  13. Recent files, don't actually show the most recent file

    Recent files list don't actually show the most recent file. I think files opened from email or API don't show in the ist ... MIA.

    There have been many good ideas requested by other users but you mark them as "Resolved" instead of "Rejected". Just pointing to a style guide or help page that is incorrect is not solving anybodies problem.

    We will keep creating new requests for these missing features and bugs until you listen and REALLY FIX them. Often they seem quiet trivial but are great time savers for some users. Please leave them as "Unresolved" unless you…

  14. Why did Acrobat change the UI to this simplistic, childish design? Terrible, slower to use.

    Acrobat Pro used to be seamless, easy to use and efficiently laid out. Now it looks like some child's puzzle game where you have to access numerous screens to accomplish what you used to be able to do from ONE PLACE.
    Maddening, dumb redesign that apparently was done for what? Tablet use? Why ruin something many of us use in professional settings so students and casual users can play around with their school prom flyer on mom's ipad?
    It is ugly and not at all intuitive. Clearly the project team didn't have anyone with institutional knowledge involved.

  15. Reduce Icon Size

    Toolbar Icons are insanely large. Unable to modify or alter in any way (I've reviewed forums for info, and when I follow steps in "Preferences>General>Scale for screen resolution..." there are no options for me on any of my Windows 10 machines. It's like, cartoonishly large and very distracting.

    Hi,

    Apologies for the issue that you are facing with the Acrobat Toolbar icons size.

    Could you please check if this is the concern that you are facing only with the last update of Acrobat or is it something that you observe for quite some time previously as well ?

    Also, could you please attach a snapshot of what exactly do you face the issue with for icons size ?

  16. new interface is terrible - please give option of classic view

    I am a long time user of the creative suite and acrobat pro and have been intentionally not upgrading to DC because the interface is so aweful but now I have been forced to upgrade and I cannot stress how terrible it is. It's been around long enough for the feedback about how aweful it is to get back to you guys to fix the problem. Please fix it and add an option for classic view. It also looks an educational game for kindergarteners which I wouldn't even mind if it were easier to use. Please fix already.

  17. Spell check

    Given that this product will cost about $624 a year after I graduate, I feel the need to add a voice to some critical thoughts of how this will help me grow my business. One way will be to maybe incorporate some means of grammatical and spelling checker to the software. It has become increasingly hard to find programs that work together. Even though copying and pasting from separate programs, we run into the problems of something not being appropriately transferred or some punctuation not recognized. If I may make a recommendation, Grammarly, or Microsft word integration into the program…

  18. If I select 'Enable scrolling' in Acrobat, why not remember that between runs?

    It's a bit repetitious to have to re-select View->Page display->Enable scrolling every time I open a file.

  19. remove all the tool icons and replace them with text only menus

    I recently had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro and I would like to be able to remove the icons and replace them with text only menus. If I wanted to look at hieroglyphs I would tune in the Stargate series on MeTV.

    Is there a way to change preferences or an add-on that will remove the box-of-crayons-colors icons and display text menus automatically? I don't use the application often enough to memorize the mouse-over texts. It's tiresome enough dealing with texter's shortcut abortions of the English language these days. I'd rather not have to play a game of Concentration when…
